Demonstrators in NYC mark anniversary of Iraq war
NEW YORK -- There was a thin turnout in New York City for a rally protesting the seventh anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
A few dozen people gathered Saturday near a military recruiting station in Times Square.
A group of older women calling themselves the Raging Grannies sang, "The country is broke, this war is a joke."
Four demonstrators evoked images of the U.S. detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by dressing in orange uniforms and wearing black hoods.
Protester Kathy Hoang, of Manchester, Conn., said Americans are getting too used to war, and don't bother to think about it anymore.
