This is what I don't understand about the protesters.  They protest for PEACE - no war, but yet they are fighting with the police, their own people.  How does that stand for peace.  I thought protesting for peace was suppose to be peaceful.  Go figure.

One of  the commentators made an interesting observation last night. Greenwich Village has traditionally a hot bet of political protest and very anti war. He commented that there was very little protest coming from Greenwich Village but a lot from San Francisco, Chicago, etc. As he pointed out Greenwich Village is only a few blocks from the World Trade Center and they lived through 9/11. I think it makes a big difference.

Watched a little bit of it on TV last night.  Protestors in Chicago blocking streets, etc.  How quickly they forget about 9-11!  And today is quite a showing.  Seems we have everyone backing us except those few "weak-minded" individuals and the French.
And yes, a big thank-you and god bless to all those american's defending our freedom and safety!!

Wow. What an awesome treatise on the situation today. Unfortunately, it is
not in "comic book" form and there are no bright color pictures - so it will
be lost on those weak-minded individuals who will always blame America first
and wring their hands over the destruction of evil. I'm glad I read it,
however. And Godspeed to all those American's in uniform.
