SEATTLE — Large anti-war protests come with a hefty price tag.
Money is needed to rent or buy stages, sound systems, permits and portable toilets, and tabs often run as high as $200,000 per demonstration — much more than the average grassroots peace group will ever have in its coffers.

I understand why the socialist would want to defend Saddam and want to protest a regime change in Iraq because Saddam is a fellow Socialist.
But I cannot understand why pacifists would want to join with the Communist and Socialist, after all Socialist have lead some of the bloodiest revolutions in history - only to install vile dictators who have pillaged the land and made slaves of the people.
First, it's because they don't actually THINK about anything. And if they do analyze it, I'm sure they believe that the only reason that socialist/communist regimes became violent was because the people in charge were bad guys. "They" would do it "right".
You win the prize!
Because these so-called "pacifists" are nothing more than democrat/liberals, most of whom bitterly resent the fact that Bush won the White House. And we already know that liberal is just another word for communist/socialist.
Thanks. I hope more anti-war protesters read it. Do you suppose it will make them think twice? (Probably not, since most of them probably didn't think once.)
This has nothing to do with right or wrong.....it has EVERYTHING to do with liberal democrats vs. a Republican President
And their hit list goes beyond economic targets.
Some protesters are promising to chain themselves to fences at schools and day care centers so working parents will have to stay home from their jobs. Organizers say this will give others a chance to contemplate how war affects the children of Iraq.
These people should be thrown in jail for a good long time. It's one thing to publicly declare your anti-war opinions. Take out a full page ad in the NY Times, for all I care. But it's another thing to disrupt the peace --speaking of "peace" -- and to cause harm or potential harm to property or people.
Hey, that's what Marxism is all about, right?

They "wonder"?!?! Btw, good screen name.
Check out whose sponsoring these rallies at our schools Steve Gill dug this one up. Commies, Marxist, Socialist, Enviro-whackos
Demonstrations never fed a starving child, or provided a job to a poor single mother, or bought medicine for an elderly person.
