Thousands of protesters gathered Saturday outside the White House to demand an end to the Iraq war as counter-protesters rallied to meet them on a planned march to the Capitol.
The protesters gathered in Lafayette Park with signs saying "End the war now" and calling for President Bush's impeachment. The rally, organized by the ANSWER Coalition and other groups, was expected to conclude with a march to the Capitol.

The neo-cons protesting against protesters are just brainwahed morans. If they would truly supporting the USA, they would want the head of the Bush administration for their countless treasonous actions.

If I'm no mistaken, much of the decisions made by the US senate have been vetoed by the president lately... which means the Senate has no power to begin with.
I think it's the Presidents Veto power you should be angry with.

I'm very much interested in the counter-demonstration group of Vietnam Veteans... they are called "Gathering of Eagles"
who countered the anti war-in-iraq crowd of this demonstration....
? did they have an 'assembly' or 'parade' permit? or were they allowed to counter-protest with the blessings of the administration?
? let's get a demographic of the profile of these 'Pro-War, Vietnam-vets'
...is it really possible that all those abused souls that survived the conflict
itself, and the Agent Orange & PTSD stuff, which a series of administrations
keep sweeping under-the-rug..would suddnly find a grass-roots movement of dedicated Patriots..ready+willing+desirious to show complete support
for a morass/quagmire in Iraq & demonstrate to the 70% of the Americans
who feel Bush&Co is as wrong as Johnson-&-Nixon were in that era
