ATHENS, Greece (CNN) -- Riot police fired tear gas, and anti-American protesters responded with gasoline bombs Friday as central Athens became a battleground just as U.S. President Bill Clinton arrived in the Greek capital for a short visit.
The leftist protesters are angry at the U.S. role in NATO's bombing attack on Yugoslavia earlier this year.
The riot erupted in Syndagma Square almost at the very moment Air Force One touched down at Athens international airport. More than 10,000 protesters, who had come to the square for a Communist-led rally, tried to defy a ban on marching to the U.S. Embassy, but were blocked by a wall of helmeted, black-clad riot police.

...after all we all know how arrogant Bush can be when it comes to his personal view of how important, he is to the world.
Why are people voting no on this submission? Is it Bush lovers that don't want a Bush protest posted as news? C'mon people, this is ATS, the news is supposed to be unbiassed. This is newsworthy.
The life of a person that affects me in no way is never newsworthy. The whole point to this article is Bush Bashing, which I don't mink partaking on now and again.

Once he made the decision to go to war, he can't possibly expect people to like him. It's not in the best interest for humanity.
War should never be an option in solving a problem.

Thank god here in Europe at least people can still protest without being shot with rubber bullets and teargassed, well sometimes at least. Try doing this in the USA these days and you are likely to end up in Guantanamo bay.

These are the same German's that when the death camps for Jews, Russians, etc. were discovered that they simply denied (were in denial) that they were thus and that such acts were not taking place?
Yeah, if anyone should have the 'know' and the 'right' to call anyone and assert that someone is 'like Hitler', it would certainly be them, huh?
