BOSTON (AP) - They have marched and chanted, hoping to use persuasion to prevent war. If that fails, though, activists are readying a more aggressive strategy of sit-ins and social disruptions, meant to restore peace in Iraq.
Protest sit-ins, especially at federal buildings, defense recruiting offices and military bases, have been mapped out for dozens of cities in the first day or two of any war, anti-war organizers say. Some also foresee widespread walkouts at schools and workplaces. A smaller number talk of blocking roads and bridges.
blah blah blah.. ok, look. I'm not exactly beating the war drum. In fact, as time goes on, I find Bush coming across like a bully. Now imagine... here I am, sitting on the fence, not sure how I feel about this whole Iraq conflict. I'm driving around, minding my own business, only to get stuck in some traffic snarl for hours because of a bunch of fuckwits who decided to block the street so I can see their pretty protest signs.
If you're on the side of the street holding your signs, I'll respect you and your opinion a hell of a lot more than you deciding to disrupt my life. If you want to block someone's path, go block Bush on the way to work. I persoanlly don't have a veto on the U.N. Security Council. So leave me the fuck alone! Everytime I see these lame asses getting arrested for blocking the streets and other assinine activities, I keep finding myself wanting more and more to be in favor of the other side! Ugh!
