Peace Movement Growing

St. Louis, MO – With war in Iraq looming as a possibility, the peace movement continues to gain momentum in the St. Louis area.
Rallies have been held in recent months by a number of different groups opposed to President Bush's threat of sending US troops into Iraq. Jim McGinnis, with the Instead of War Coalition in St. Louis, says his stance is firm regardless of what the weapons inspectors find in Iraq.

McGinnis says he believes that the Bush administration favors war in Iraq in order to prove to the world that America is the number-one superpower.
