Active duty war opposition goes online

A small number of active personnel put up a webiste allowing for the expression of anti-Iraq war sentiment, as set out here;
A small group of active-duty military members opposed to the occupation of Iraq, including a Norfolk-based sailor, has created a Web site intended to collect thousands of signatures of other service members who agree.
***
Seaman Jonathan Hutto, a Norfolk-based sailor who helped set up the Web site this month, said in a telephone interview with The Virginian-Pilot that the group has collected about 120 names and is trying to verify that they are legitimate service members.

There are 1.4 million troops on active duty, including members of the National Guard and Reserve.

The odds are that this will get media coverage way out of proportion to its size.
