Protesting the war is unpatriotic PERSION GULF SHOWDOWN


The majority of callers to Sundial believe that people protesting the war in the Persian Gulf are unpatriotic, and that their actions hurt the morale of our troops there.

But most also said yesterday that it is sometimes patriotic to protest government policy.

Of 609 callers, 365, or 60 percent, said protesting the gulf war is unpatriotic. But 69 percent -- 419 of 611 callers -- said some protests of government policy are patriotic. Seventy-six percent -- 465 of 610 callers -- said war protests hurt the morale of our troops in the gulf region.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
