War Protests Mark Iraq War Anniversary

Protesters around the world marked the third anniversary of the U-S invasion of Iraq. But demonstration in Fayetteville -- in the shadow of Fort Bragg -- had a markedly lower turnout than one year ago. One demonstrator said the comparatively small crowd -- estimated by police at no more than a thousand -- reflects that people are growing more pessimistic about having any impact on the Bush Administration. A small group of counter-protesters carried signs proclaiming support for troops. They included Army wife Jennifer Battaglia and her two-year-old son. She said it's insulting for protesters to demonstrate against an army made up of volunteers.
