The San Francisco Anti-War Protestors Got What They Asked For

The San Francisco Anti-War Protestors Got What They Asked For: When I heard about this[1]…

“A U.S. soldier (Sgt. Asan Akbar) was detained Sunday on suspicion of throwing grenades into three tents at a 101st Airborne command center in Kuwait, killing one fellow serviceman and wounding 15, at least three of them seriously.”

…the first thing I thought about was this banner[2]…

That’s from an anti-war protest that occurred in San Francisco the week-end before the war started. San Francisco’s Indy Media Site[3] was so proud of that banner that they put it on their front page. Martin Sheen, Danny Glover & an estimated 80,000 San Francisco peaceniks were marching while that banner was displayed. Then less than a week afterwards, the people holding that banner got their wish. Can the “Free Asan Akbar” signs be far behind?

***Update***: Here’s an article from the fine folks at Indy Media — which is by the way a WILDLY POPULAR left-wing website by the way —

KILL YOUR OFFICER. US Army Sgt. Asan Akbar is an example ![4]

Incidentally, 5 mods ranked this post on a 10 scale. Two of them gave it a 1. The others gave it a 7, 8, & 10. Here’s what the Indy Media mod who gave it an 8 had to say…

“SuZQ (#428: SuZQ) 8 I’m glad to finally see some dialogue!”

Advocating murder =’s dialogue huh?
