PLATTSBURGH -- After hearing overwhelming support for a resolution opposed to war in Iran, Plattsburgh city councilors agreed to send a message. ... The council voted unanimously to support Provost's resolution calling for all diplomatic efforts to be exhausted before entering into war with Iran.
The measure was altered somewhat as a compromise.
Taken out were specific paragraphs that directly criticized President George W. Bush, accused the administration of lying, pointed out the number of soldiers and people killed and wounded in the war with Iraq, and the cost of the war.
Councilor William Provost (D-Ward 6)
"That was democracy in action. It was awesome."

Don’t these dinks have REAL work do do?
Do you remember when we found out that all diplomatic efforts were exhausted in 1941? When the diplomats showed up at the SecState’s office an hour after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Imagine a bald Neville Chamberlain
I don’t understand why local politicians vote on measures that they know they cannot enforce and which will influence no one. The only reason I can think of is to pander to their liberal constituencies.
I went to P’burgh State in the early 70s. Met an Air Force guy there and married him. Without the base there, it’s probably gone all liberal college town?
lol...awesome? Not to burst your bubble or anything councilor, but aside from you and your (very) small group of fellow anti-Americans on that council no one cares. All your insignificant little vote accomplishes is to make you feel good about yourselves.

I’d say that is a fair description of the situation.
