Casper, Wy – Protests are planned around Wyoming Saturday on the anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq. One of them is planned for Casper. Wyomingites United Against the War in Iraq and the Patriot Act Chairman Thomas Bleming says a number of speakers, including several veterans, will be at the Casper protest. Bleming sees a lot of similarities between the Iraq war and Vietnam war. He says Americans were suckered into invading Iraq just like President Johnson did to get us involved in Vietnam. The event starts at noon in Casper's Pioneer Park, across from the Dick Cheney Federal Building. Bleming invites those both opposed and in favor of the war to share their opinions at the protest.
