Topic: World Protests Iraq War...AGAIN!!


I just went through 125 pictures of people, including Americans, protesting against the US in Iraq. I was not surprised to see the normal puppets of Bush associated with Hitler and the Nazis.

The Chicago police know how to deal with these people


BUT in Iraq, there were protests of a different kind. Iraqis were infront of the Jordanian embassy protesting because the involvement of a Jordanian in that suicide attack that killed 125 people in FEB




Funny how the nature of the protests are a bit different.

At least some people are protesting at the right things... I dislike hippies. They can get real violent and they have at me for my decision of joining the army.

Throngs of people are confused about the issue. Rationality is being torn apart by confusion. Assertions appear to be overstated. And the defensive words seems to be absurdily false.

What else can I to say about this?

Try having a dad who continuously protested the War in Iraq while I was playing in the sand box. Politics is always a touchy issue between my dad and I.

THIS PROTEST WAS POINTLESS

I agree with you Chewie. After it became known it was extremely unlikely Saddam had WMDs during the invasion I really did question the starting of the war. But I believe the fight's changed and the objectives have changed and there's nothing about the mission that isn't just at this point.
Sure, Saddam was taken care of, Iraq fell into chaos as a result, but there are people working around the clock to try to put Iraq back together again. And this is more than you can say for a lot of other countries that have caused disturbances elsewhere. Right now, just to suddenly pull out would be one of the wrongest things you could do. America just made a promise to the Iraqis and it's got to keep its word this time.

I think this war was not about WMD instead it was a plan that targeted Saddamm. WMD was a door that lead to the assault. Instead of telling the public Saddam's demize by force, the uS government sugar-coated the intent with WMD to create public panics. Cheese and rice, if you want to toppled Saddam, say it out loud in the very beginnings (just tell how bad he was, not after the panics of WMD), instead putting on a facade.

Of course, I don't support a pullout at this point of time. If the US pullout, it will further agonize the middle eastern publics and create unstability. I think the protest try to remind people the mind game politician play to gain their goals.

Dunno. Saddam seemed to really act like a guy who did have WMDs. I think the US Government believed Saddam had it. If they knew it was fake all along, imagine what a big temptation they would have had to simply make up the WMD that Saddam "posessed?" You know, planted evidence.

Peace group at war with police




Auckland: A peace group has declared war on police, claiming heavy-handed and provocative actions during a protest in Auckland at the weekend.
About 100 protesters — part of a Global Peace and Justice Auckland organised march — demonstrated outside the ANZ bank in the central city protesting over military action in Iraq and the bank’s involvement in a consortium managing the Trade Bank of Iraq.
Four people were arrested as police broke up the Saturday demonstration. Three were charged with obstruction and a fourth with assaulting a police officer.
But a peace group committee member, John Minto, yesterday attacked the police actions, calling their behaviour “provocative, heavyhanded and violent”.
He has written to Police Commissioner Rob Robinson protesting at specific actions, including. —
¿ The provocative action of police in escorting a vehicle through the middle of the demonstration.
¿ The “violent manhandling” of protesters, and the “violent arrest” of four peace group supporters.
¿ The “provocative” use of plainclothed police and police photographers.
¿ The taking of “dozens” of photographs of protesters at a simultaneous protest in Wellington.
Mr Minto said in his letter that police held a “long-standing, deepseated, simmering resentment” of protest groups.
Similar police actions in Auckland and Wellington showed “a coordinated attempt by the police to assert their authority over the right to peaceful protest”.
A spokeswoman for Mr Robinson said no comment would be made until his office had studied the letter.
One protester, Simon Oosterman, claimed to have been assaulted by a police officer while being held in a patrol car.
Mr Oosterman said he had been arrested on a charge of obstructing a footpath, and was put in a stranglehold while waiting to be taken away.
“He held my jugular with his fingers so tight it sounded like I had helium in my throat.”
Mr Oosterman said he had been “passively resisting” his arrest when he was assaulted in the patrol car. A police officer slammed the driver’s seat back into his knees, and claimed the protesters “were just like the Springbok tour people”.
“He was just mocking me. It was completely inappropriate.”
Mr Oosterman — who caused a scene at the Auckland District Court a few weeks ago when he turned up naked for a court appearance — was due to appear in the court today in relation to Saturday’s protest.
He was also scheduled for a status hearing today, the latest appearance on a charge of indecent exposure stemming from a naked bike ride against oil dependency [/b]
