Ya gotta love this from the New York Times:

"As they gathered before the march, the protesters met what several veterans of the antiwar movement described as an unusually large contingent of several hundred counterdemonstrators. Many were veterans in biker jackets who said they had come to protect the nearby Vietnam Memorial, citing rumors that had circulated among veterans groups that the demonstrators planned to deface it...."

and

"Crossing the bridge toward the Pentagon, the marchers met another group of about 50 counterdemonstrators by the Arlington Cemetery, one holding a sign that said: “Go to hell traitors. You dishonor our dead on hallowed ground.”"

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/18/us/18protest.html

(I guess these particular veterans of the anti-war movement can't count.)

Come on, Freema, you were just all wound up because you got to rub all those young Marines on the head :)

One thing that just occurred to me. I've never felt so safe and at ease around a crowd as large as that, ever.

LOL! More like 'several' tens of thousands of us.

The 'rumors' of defacement attempts against the Wall were more than rumors. I remember following posted links to moonbat sites that spoke of it.

Felt like family, didn't it? And I hate being in crowds.

From the comPost

"As war protesters marched toward Arlington Memorial Bridge en route to the Pentagon yesterday, they were flanked by long lines of military veterans and others who stood in solidarity with U.S. troops and the Bush administration's cause in Iraq. Many booed loudly as the protesters passed, turned their backs to them or yelled, "If you don't like America, get out!""

Kevin you were awe inspiring as usual. I was in the command center when I heard you start speaking and came out and got most of it on tape.

Jim and Sheila were on the path by the street because of the mud for the entire rally and could not hear the speakers except you. Jim said when you started speaking he could finally hear what was being said. You really belt out the truth.

When I saw you standing next to me when that MimeMoonbat was explaining to a few people about Bush being a war criminal I cranked up my camera 'cause I knew you could cover him in facts.

That was a great "debate" you had with him, but really, whose side are you on???

OK OK, here is where the sign came from

When he was asked to do his act as a mime he put himself in a box and walked off without his sign.

A great encounter, he was good entertainment!

Anyone with gonads in the GOP leadership would video or take pictures of this anti-American debris and make an ad for national TV. Show these traitors with their signs and then put a caption under it saying "your Liberal Democrat Party in action."

Agreed. I didn't realize that there hadn't been much coverage up to the event (my 6 y/o has a VERY busy social schedule :-) so I don't get to read FR as much as I'd like...shame on FOX for not covering that better, but thank goodness they got *some* coverage at least!

I understand the sense of betrayal. In explaining this last night to some younger folks that is really a complex issue as nothing like this had happened before and it was unbelievable then, nor was there any form of mass and instant communication at that time.

Does anyone else get a snide feeling when they say "war supporter"? How about "America and American troops supporter" instead? More truthful, but that's how the MSM plays...

March 17, 2007 was a day that will go down as the first day that patriots decided to answer ANSWER man for man and woman for woman. Cindy Sheehan and Jane Fonda and the anti-America chorus didn’t monopolize the day. Veterans, bikers, and moms and dads and kids wouldn’t let them. Not anymore. It was a historic day.

Thank you all so much.

I have no words to describe how I feel,I've been a little choked up lately,if you know what I mean;)

NO! Don't give up!!
NEVER GIVE UP!!

Remember the odds when Washington commanded the troops?
Remember the odds when Lincoln decided to fight to keep this country united?
Remember the odds when we took on Germany and Japan?

NO! Don't give up!
This country is made up of fighters, as today's GOE proved.
We WILL overcome the evil-doers who hate our country, with God's grace!

Thank you for the pictures and the reports from Angelwood.

Saw a snippet (all I could take) of the moonbat speakers on Cspan. Screeching.

Am heartened by the true patriots who showed these communist/Marxist/anarchist/Soros paid traitors they do NOT speak for America. The sea of American flags and the Tens of thousands (GOE site says 30,000!!!)Eagles will not be soon forgotten by the moonbats....they cannot get away with theiir treason this time.

Quix, this is taken from the Virginia side (where Arlington Cemetery is), showing the yellow bellied freedom hating moonbats coming across Memorial Bridge heading out of DC and into Virginia. (Lincoln Memorial in background.)

They turn to *their* left to head along GW Parkway to the Pentagon.

"anti-war sheehanista pussies"......

Wow, Breeze, you have just coined the perfect discription of the anti-American left. Particularly the men.

I'm up here in western Washington, looking at all the pix of the men of the GoE and the men of the unwashed masses of convenient idiots and I can't help but wonder. How do these people manage to breed? I can imagine a more unappealing prospect.........for the women, a limp wristed (and limp something else I'm guessing), scrawny, effeminate, balding stringy pony tailed, recorder tootling surrender monkey. For men a dumpy, hairy, greying, screaming harridan.

We conservative gals got damn hot menfolk that can "get er' done".

And the spindly little larvii of those libs? How do they survive infancy and childhood?

Oh well just being mean. Still I bet alot of those libtard females went home and looked at their ol' men[?] in a whole different light.
