FLORENCE - Peace activists, fired by the success of a weekend rally that drew half a million protesters to the streets of Florence, pledged yesterday to stage protests across Europe against a war in Iraq.
They said they were planning to hold a wave of demonstrations in three months' time, but would mobilize supporters sooner if a US attack on Iraq looked imminent.

They better act quickly, by the time they get a rally together the war will be over.
Looks like every thing is progressing as it was written so very long ago. The Euros are coopting radical Muslim cooperation through anti-americanism. The Vichy French are alive and well.

The European Social Forum which spearheads these gatherings is the coalescence of a number of Marxist/Communist/Socialist trends which have revived following the demise of the USSR. It is a growing movement in Europe where the economies from Greece through Germany to Sweden are in sad shape.

After the Iraq action is over, we need to appease the Europeans. Pull out of NATO and remove our troops. That will totally devestate their socialist/communist based economy. Europe already is broke. That would force them to spend more money on selfdefense, which they don't have.
Invite Britain, Russia, China, Japan Canada and Australia to join forces as a Global Union. The Euros will be ruled by Islam very soon anyway, so let's cut the ties now.
Yes, it would be just awful to depose a wonderful peace-loving humanitarian like Hussein (yuk,yuk). These protesters, who are obviously being led around by the nose by self-admitted leftists and commies, hate America and capitalism so much they would be willing to see other Islamic terrorists persons, groups, and countries succeed. Nothing would give them more pleasure than to see the total destruction of the West and the deaths of millions of those horrible bourgeous Americans who (gasp) drive cars, carry guns, own land, eat animals, smoke or chew tobacco (horrors!)....and support Israel. If you read descriptions of the protest in Italy, the marchers protested many things other than the coming war with Iraq.
So we have two enemies to defeat: the Islamists and our old enemies the far-leftists. Dense leftism never dies, it just takes different forms at times.

One good thing though, while the muslims in Europe are interwoven with the community, soon they will be one of the same. They will become much easier to eliminate.
while the muslims in Europe are interwoven with the community That's the problem they don't blend into the mainstream society. The average small town Euro weenie resents the fact that they are there and sees the damage being done to their respective country. My guess, just as in the states, it's the big city leftists crackpots who come out and do this sort of thing. Either way, if they don't get some sort of control and quick-Europe is toast.

well, not quite. The Euros, especially the Germans, have no choice but to actively recruit Muslims to immigrate into their countries. Since the "Wirtschaftswunder" social promises by the government have increased to such an extent that the average young german became very lazy, didn't want to perform the "meaningless" jobs and was too eager to delegate this responsibility to the "guest workers". They also became too lazy to breed, causing a shortage in the funding of the social system. Now the chicken has come home to roost. They need fresh blood to pay for their promises of Pensions, high unemployment benefits etc. for a rapidly aging and declining population. The only ones who still procreate are the muslims. They will, within 20-30 years rule Europe. Even Russia is not excempt. Their population is expected to decrease from 130 million to 90 million over the next 30 years. Europe is broke and going deeper into the hole.
Good points. But many of the Germans I spoke with really held deep resentment for the Muslims.(particularly the Turks) I was always told me they came there for the social benefits and did not work. (collected welfare, had boatloads of kids, etc.)
I would imagine it is not very sustainable. My neighbor who was 30 was set to retire in 5 years with full pension. The guy never worked. He missed a full month every Spring due to hayfever, as he sat around "Im garten" drinking iced cappucino and mowing his lawn. And believe me, he wasn't the exception, I could multiply that story times a hundred.

Exactly my point, Lazy Germans, childbearing muslims. Remember, when they come into the country, have children, they become citizens. While many Germans resent the "auslaender", especially the skinheads soon they will outnumber the ethnic Germans. It is inevitable. I a have to go there again Thursday :( I am in Europe 4-5 times a year, lived there for 16 years and speak the languages. I know how they think.
