Cory and I were talking today about how some of the protesters targeted the World Trade Center downtown, putting acid on the windows and otherwise vandalizing the buildings. We thought it was interesting that the people who want peace are destroying the World Trade Center. And we decided that people like that are no better than terrorists and will be thought of with the same disgust.

I hope everyone realizes this. And I hope people also realize that not all people protesting the war are being destructive and violent.

Re:
I hope so too. I'm all for freedom of speech - after all, if you don't have freedom of speech, you're pretty much Iraqi, right? :) So I'm glad I live where it's OK to protest, but I don't want businesses and taxpayers to have to pay for the damage these people are doing. Especially when all the overtime money and cleanup money could be going to things like schools!

I'm in NO way defending these people, I think their actions were very wrong.
But, a lot of those people aren't protesting for peace, they are protesting against this specific war. It's a big difference, and it's too bad because they end up ruining it for the people who want peace.

Re:
That's true. And even I don't think that this war is completely and unquestionably justified. But yeah, they do end up ruining it. And I'm sure a lot of people who were doing these things were just people who got caught up in it and took advantage of the fact that the police were outnumbered, which is even more unfortunate.

Why- because they're such great people.

Yes. Isn't it obvious?
