Condoleezza Rice made her first official visit to Athens, Greece. She was met by demostrations against the Iraq war, and eventually a small riot. Some 50 protesters broke away and threw "fuel-bombs" lighting cars up, and damaging shops. 5,000 police were deployed to stop riots like that when Bill Clinton visited in 1999.
April 25 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's first official visit to Athens prompted a demonstration against the Iraq war in which protesters threw fuel-bombs. Shops were damaged and cars set alight as a group of about 50 people broke away from marchers in the center of the Greek capital and scuffled with police. Officers had set up a blockade to prevent the demonstrators from reaching the foreign ministry, where Rice was meeting Greece's foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis, state-run television NET showed.

Greece deployed about 5,000 police officers across the city in an attempt to prevent a repetition of rioting that accompanied former U.S. President Bill Clinton's visit in 1999. Greece's communists and other parties organized the demonstration, and said they planned to march on to the U.S. embassy.

This is interesting. It shows some of the more international feeling about the war in Iraq. Rice went there to discuss possible sanctions against Iran. Do you think such riots will become more frequent? Personally I don't think its going to get any better, and with the iran situation, actually it may get worse.

from what i know this is where she responded to Irans recent words of Defiance. they made their stiffest comments yet, and Rice took a quick shot back to them in athens.

Still interesting to see how people internationally are reacting to the war in iraq.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch... who's preparing her defense for this allegation?

Rice Leaked Defense Information to pro-Israel Lobbyist?

Now whatever could they be protesting, her war crimes or being a stupid politician?
