It's a Die-In

If nothing else, I have to admire her dedication to her cause.

We admire her dedication too, takes a special type of person to do something like that...
Hopefully everything works out for her...

This is getting to be more and more like Viet Nam all the time, and it won't be long before the soldiers start feeling it directly.

I sure don't see where they are getting the "70% of Americans want us out now". But hey, why confuse them with the facts?

As long as it is a peaceful protest, more power to them. Have fun.

I sure hope not V. The visual of thinking of Cindy Sheehan sitting on the barrell of Terrorist's guns is very disturbing.

I will never forget how Jane Fonda threw the P.O.W.'s under the bus. NEVER

Oh gosh Cindy when my Mom found out that she tried to apologize for it she said, "HA! To little to late sweetie!"

She did two tours in Viet Nam.

Yep, your mom is right. A very dark day in our history when common citizens are allowed to consort with the enemy and get away with their traitorous behavior. Not only that, Hollywood made her into an icon. Wow, what a surprise.

International Answer is getting more and more radical and less and less rational... those people WILL be arrested.

But hey, whatever gets on the news?

I still think, fonda, kerry, should have been charged with treason.
Same goes dennis kucinich.

I know this is a can of worms, but why Kerry and Kucinich? I know about Fonda and Vietnam.. but I haven't heard anything about the other two as far as putting troops in harms way. I remember an altered picture that showed Kerry and Fonda together, but it wasn't real.

You would have to ask the Swift Boat Veterans about Kerry. I know he got "band-aid" Purple Hearts and he came back from Nam and pretty much turned on his compatriots and said some pretty harsh stuff. But I am no Kerry fan.

Hasn't he a right to? I mean... does being in a war shackle you into agreeing with it for the rest of your life?

I don't believe so, yes, some of the things he and many other anti-war people may have done then (or now, for that matter) may have been poor, but the swift boat folks were chosen for their political usefulness as well.

I could be wrong, but didn't Kerry meet with the enemy at some point after his military service, and when he was actively protesting the war?

kerry for the lies he told when he came back to the states, and latter admitted he lied about the stuff he told congress,

both Fonda and kerry are war heros in Vietnam, they both have there own display in there war museum,

Kucinich, cause he is over in the middle east, hanging out with a country that is in all but name a enemy of America, and cause It is not congress job when it comes to forgin affaris.

They protested, and as predicted there were arrests. They insisted on it.

The arrests came after protesters lay down on the Capitol lawn in what they called a "die in" - with signs on top of their bodies to represent soldiers killed in Iraq. When police took no action, some of the protesters started climbing over a barricade at the foot of the Capitol steps.

Many were arrested without a struggle after they jumped over the waist-high barrier. But some grew angry as police with shields and riot gear attempted to push them back. At least two people were showered with chemical spray. Protesters responded by throwing signs and chanting: "Shame on you."
So they didn't get arrested for their actual protest, so they threw a temper tantrum to make sure they would be arrested and the cops would have to respond with riot gear. Do they realize how STUPID they look? But I guess we haven't seen how the national press will report it - will they report it as this AP story does, or will they report it as the "poor protesters had their rights infringed by the mean ol' police force who obviously had their own political agenda".

I called everyone I knew and warned them away from that protest. Anytime people intend to get arrested, nothing good will happen.

Though I do have to say I disagree with the recent change to not allow protesters anywhere where the politicians might *gasp* actually be able to see them...

I think the OJ debacle overshadowed the protest. Only in America.
We know where our priorities are.

They don't report them, usually, and when they do they grossly underestimate the number of people there.

Liberal media.
