Activists attack Clinton convoy
Interaksyon ^

Posted on 11/16/2011 3:03:01 PM PST by nuconvert

MANILA, Philippines - (UPDATE - 3:55 p.m.) Left-wing youth activists attacked the convoy of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she left Malacanang Palace following talks with President Benigno Aquino III Wednesday afternoon.

The activists managed to stop the convoy and briefly turn it back before they were pushed back by policemen and troops of the Presidential Security Group.

Around 50 members of the League of Filipino Students and Anakbayan ran from San Marcelino St. to the Ayala Bridge, storming past traffic policemen, and catching the convoy’s security detail by surprise.

Since she’s already experienced at dodging sniper bullets, this should be nothing.

Not to worry. I’m sure Hillary laid down suppressive fire with her M-16, then called in close air support.

H! needs to hit the reset button.

Besides, she should get an up close and personal taste of "occupy".

0bambi was gonna fix all that supposed disrespect in the eyes of foreign countries around the world, remember? I guess his experience and worldliness didn't inform him that his actions, diplomacy, policies and statements about the US would have the opposite effect abroad.

Barry's administration owns this disrespect and vulnerability! But you know, the snipper fire comments were also intended to generate sympathy and respect for Hillary's campaign, so maybe this is tied in with getting her a few more stripes, respect and votes.

I share the sentiment, because I can certainly see what this will lead to. I’m not so sure that I’d use “terrible” to describe it as much as eyeing it with a sense of “foreboding”, inasmuch as the outcome could have been significantly worse than it was - it’s evidence of a complete failure of security that has grave implications not only for future diplomatic travel at all levels, but also extending all the way down to attacks on Main Street America, schools, and other soft targets. It’s not unlike the perversion of the “flash mob” concept into a savage “criminal mob” whose members feel invincible due to their overwhelming numbers, outright contempt for the law, and expectation that they will profit with little risk to themselves.

No doubt America’s enemies, large and small, are studying this successful use of a “swarming” tactic, and plotting how to make use of something similar for more nefarious purposes than simply tossing paint.

Sorry, but I dropped a dime on you to the Admin Mod for that one.

It doesn't look good in this time of heightened rhetoric, and facile accusations of the right, to forget your /sarcasm> tag.

OK, maybe terrible is a bit extreme.
