...the "NOT IN MY NAME" protests against the Iraq war being something
similar. These were partly aimed at our own government, and partly at
the Arab nations - "the *people* don't want this war, don't hate us

Personally, I think the Queen should have intervened. It was in her
name too, and I don't think she was exactly enthusiastic about it.
