Anti-Bush Protestors Wave Osama Bin Laden Pictures In Argentina
Agencia EFE ^ | Nov. 4, 2005 | Staff

Posted on 11/04/2005 8:47:22 AM PST by Kitten Festival

Mar del Plata, Argentina, Nov 4 (EFE).- A Nobel laureate and a leftist Bolivian presidential candidate - but not, as had been promised, an Argentine soccer icon - led a march of thousands of anti-U.S. protesters through the streets of this seaside resort city Friday, hours before the inauguration of the Summit of the Americas.

Retired athlete Diego Maradona, who had vowed to lead the demonstration to "repudiate" the presence of U.S. President George W. Bush, was in town but did not join the vanguard of the marchers. The explanation provided was that the former captain of the national soccer team was too besieged by admirers to be able to walk unmolested with the throng. The main personalities at the procession's head were Evo Morales, the Socialist, and Indian, front-runner in the Bolivian presidential election set for next month, and Argentina's Adolfo Perez Esquivel, a human rights activist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1980. Also in the forefront of the demonstration were Argentine and other Latin American labor leaders, as well as representatives of leftist grassroots organizations from throughout the hemisphere. Many wore t-shirts with a stop sign reading "Stop Bush," or one displaying portraits of Che Guevara or Fidel Castro. A few sporting the portrait of Osama bin Laden were also in evidence.

I think anyone waving an Osama Bin Laden picture should be immediately dispatched.

In Bueno Aires if you don't prepay your meals inflation will drive the price up 5% when you get the bill.

An with Argentina's history of Nazism, who should be surprised that Nazis recognize their natural new home?

It's bad enough that Americans with any sense know this plan is a bad idea, but when the folks who actually stand to BENEFIT from the plan (at the cost of American jobs and our standard of living) don't even want it.

Well I guess that means it's officially time to burn Argentina to the ground. Or at the very lease, stop all trade and aide with them, and since they like bin laden so much, treat them as a terror state. They like bin laden so much, let's treat them like we treat bin laden.

Yes, but was it really the same? The Monroe Doctrine of 1823 was targeted at protecting the Americas from European intervention and expansion. I have not read it in a long time -- but will do so!! :-)

Hey, they waived pictures of Ho hi Minh here in the sixties.

It is only a matter of time before the anti-American crowd quits pretending in the U.S. and waives Osama signs too.

I was in Mexico City in 1997 and they were selling Osama bin Laden posters and T-shirts in the main square, the Zocolo, next to the T-shirts of Che Gueverra. So this comes as little surprise.

What a world...

You bet! The coup was led by Abu Bakr and his followers, wounded their president, and held him hostage. They eventually were surrounded and surrendered.

Ya know, all these protests are going to have the effect of driving the US into isolationism. It's one thing to disagree with our policies, it's another to burn our flag and rally around Osama's picture.

The next time there's an earthquake, ecomomic collapse, or something, America should say, sorry, we can't help.

Anti-imperialist sentiment is growing," said Morales. "Not only on the part of social and popular movements, but also among personalities, athletes and artists. And not only in Argentina, but in all of Latin America,"

Since when did the US have any colonies in South America? Shouldn't they be yelling their complaints at Spain?

At least FTAA isn't likely to go through any time soon while big Hugo and little Hugo are down there agitating.

Argentina had a brief war with England back in the 1980s when they tried to take the Falklands (colonized by the British after the Monroe Doctrine was proclaimed, but only marginally "America")...that didn't go so well for them.

The U.S. violated its own proclamation (that it would not interfere with existing colonies) by taking Cuba and Puerto Rico away from Spain in 1898. Cuba would certainly be better off if it still belonged to Spain.

I think it was here on FR where I first read "When another country has a crisis and picks up the phone and dials 911, the phone rings here in America".

"Ring, ring, ring........sorry, the number you have dialed had been disconnected and there is no new number, Please try again..."

I met an al-Qaida guy in Panama City, Panama, in late 2000. I had just got out of Indonesia and headed to the local mosque for the heck of it since I knew my mosques, and sure enough, this bonafide member of al-Qaida was there, telling me about his mission to set up a madrassa in CHILE. He was an ex-Sandinista who had lost his other religion, communism, and had picked up Islamofascism as his substitute. Totally sick but true.

Yes, in 1997! Isn't that crazy? Most people hadn't even heard of Osama back then. But I knew exactly who he was even at the time. It made me very uncomfortable as an American tourist, because even in 1997 Osama was known to have been behind various bombings of Americans. Although lots of Americans didn't yet know his name, he was already a popular figure among the radical anti-American leftists of Mexico and Latin America. I guess they saw him as a revolutionary like Che. Needless to say, it didn't make me feel very welcome to walk through the streets of Mexico with peddlers hawking posters of somebody famous for having blown up Americans at the Khobar towers and other places.

Ahh, Maradona. Coked-up soccer icon who has somehow discovered his Islamic and Marxist roots. After scamming millions of dollars from the corrupt capitalist system, of course.

I remember reading not too long ago that there were people there so poor that they fed their families by living near the garbage dump. And they are so moronic that they can't recognize a helping hand when we are kind enough to offer it.

Screw em all. And I know a family in Argentina, and have been there to visit them. beautiful country, but moronic inhabitants.

Does anyone think George Soros and Moveon.org might be sponsoring some of this? Who paid Mother Sheehan's way down to S. America, or is she still spending Casey's insurance money?

I hope that Hell has an extra hot seat waiting for each and every socialist that has ever walked this earth.

These A$$holes that walk around with their 'Capitalism Kills' patches don't think twice about how it is socialist policies that cause people to starve and die. What do THEIR stupid govt farm subsidies do to Africa.
