Protests

On the second anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, peaceniks around the world are holding protests of most everything under the sun in the vain belief that their gibbering idiocy actually has an effect.

Idiots...

In a more interesting and relevant protest today, thousands of Iraqi demonstrators push through a police lines and stormed the Jordanian embassy in Baghdad today.

What where they so upset about? They were protesting the involvement of a Jordanian in Iraq's single deadliest suicide bombing. The February 28th attack south of Baghdad killed 125 people.

If you look @ my trackback I ran across a reuters piece where they're also protesting the Iraq war.


yes, they're protesting the Iraq war....the war is actually over. It's no longer a war anymore, it's a peace action. YES, right now it's a peace action because we're there to keep the peace while the Iraqis get their government up and running, and doing a lot better job of it than the UN could ever do.

Does it stike anyone as odd that a protester from the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament would be protesting to protect a country trying to become the next nuclear armed state? How does that work, moonbeam?

And from the photos I've seen I'd have to say that pro-democracy protesters in Lebanon are way hotter than the U.S. anti-democracy protesters.

Jim:

Doug is the man!!! He analysis is right on the mark. Also, the sign says CND -- Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament -- but they are only for US disarmament. This is the Hate-America crowd whom Hillary is avoiding like the plague, although they know she's just putting on an act for the voters.

The sign also has the web address, where you can see that CND is a British group that is apparently against all nuclear weapons anywhere, but especially in the UK. I agree that the "No War in Iran" is odd considering Iran wants nuclear weapons and all, but you're just making crap up Jim. It looks from the buildings in the background that the protest is in Europe anyway. Why would Hillary need to avoid the British anti-nuclear crowd?

Damn you, Doug. I saw the photo, came to the same conclusion and thought to myself, heh - that'll make a decent comment. And then you beat me to it, you sharp bastage.

I'm just gonna go and write about it at Sortapundit. Grrrr.

OregonMuse:

Actually Jim, Hillary is not trying to avoid the hate-America crowd; she was a featured speaker at that moveon.org revival meeting and medicine show earlier this week.

I assume she was "firming up her base." Heh.

- Repost - just because I'm tired....

- Just to add more cheer to our revelling in the unraveling bretheren of the marxified, brainpan fried, code piglets with the mental acuity of Charles Manson, I briefly attended the “Patriots Picnic” at Balboa park today. The lefties are having trouble mustering enough people to pick up a couch these days. The cops did a great job of keeping the living dead on one side of the street and the human beings on the other. Only a couple of zephur zombies really brought anything to the party. One was an “it” that had her middle finger painted purple who got a little unruly (I’m not sure thats really possible to assertain) but was hussled back to the “turkey herd” with the good guys yelling “Thats right, they did vote in Iraq. Good of you to remind everyone”. Several people, including bloggers in attendence got good pics of her. Six more years of this coupled with more Bush doctrine victories, and there won’t be any of them “left” to amuse us....

I remember a comedian, I don't remember which, said that if every anti-gun American really wanted to make a difference they should all join the NRA, call a meeting, and vote on whether to scrap guns.

In the same vein of thought I applied to join the CND as an intern. My first lesson? Showering 101.

My favorite comment on the anti-war protesters, courtesy of Snopes just this morning. [if you haven't seen this yet, DON'T skip to the bottom]

Bush cost me my job, my kids and my houses

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind. I lost my job this past year. When Clinton was president I was secure and prosperous, but in the last year, we had to close our operations. We simply could not compete with foreign labor. This foreign labor worked for low pay under very bad conditions.

They worked very long shifts, and many even died on the job.

This competition could hardly be called "fair." I was forced out of the place where I had worked for 34 years.

Not a single government program was there to help me.

How can Bush call himself "compassionate?" Far worse, I lost two of my sons in Bush's evil war in Iraq. They gave their lives for their country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies can get rich. My pain of losing my sons is indescribable.

While it is trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also lost my home. I simply have nothing left. How can Bush call himself a Christian when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with various medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I was reduced to the point where I had to live in a hole in a ground, all because of President Bush.

And when the authorities found me there, did they have any compassion for my misfortune and ailments? No, I was arrested. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a Christian. If I had any money left, I would donate it to the Democrat Party.

If Al Gore had been elected in 2000 I would still have a job, a home, and most importantly, my dear sons!

Regards,
Saddam Hussein
