Peace Activists Occupy General Dynamics Weapons Plant

The demonstrators entered the lobby at around 3pm, and proceeded to lock their arms together with PVC piping, duct tape and other materials. According to a press release.......

.......demanding that General Dynamics stop giving campaign contributions to the politicians responsible for regulating it, stop making Gattling guns, missiles and other weapons of mass destruction.......

I just love their spirit- willing to be sacrificed to arrest, for taking
action against a HUGE war-profiteer corporation; unlike
those of us who are similarly aggrivated, but choose to take
NO action, except to sit here blogging!

Does this make the protesters more courageous than us? Or
do you view their actions as nutty, and ineffective? Either way,
they brought attention to some very good points.

And what about those towns that passed resolutions to have
Bush & Cheney arrested, if they ever visit? Will it work?

In my opinion the military industrial complex is the root of the vast majority of problems that the world is experiencing today. Just think about all the brain power that has been spent on figuring out new and effective ways to kill each other. Imagine peace. It's important to think about.

General Dynamics should test one of their new weapons on these bunch of losers who have no idea what it takes to remain ahead of our enemies regarding weapons technology.

I agree. Every movement be it an army or protesters needs people out there fighting eye to eye. Maybe we as bloggers are the stratergists who uncover truths and the protesters are the minions who carry this out! lol I just like to think of myself as a mastermind from time to time! I take my hat off to these guys though, their ballsy actions create awareness.

Right spirit, wrong target.

The weapons that will be used against us in the end will not be bombs and missiles. They will be soldiers with guns, hording us on to trains and taking us away to the Rex 84 camps. Maybe these people should descend on a few of those and burn them to the ground?

I sure wish somebody would, while they're still empty.

Leave the weapon building companies alone, because if America ever breaks free of the globalists' evil agenda we're going to have an immediate need to defend ourself from the "other globalists" in the Asian/Mideastern countries.

My opinion, also, stikkinikki! Star for you!

All that brain power could be used for so many other positive solutions to
our country's problems!

By the way- very "John Lennon-ish", love it!

Appreciate that input, WhatTheory- Star!

I especially agree with you about keeping ahead of our enemies, with
advanced weaponry; only I wish it was for DEFENSE ONLY, not invasion of
other countries who have NOT tried to invade us!

Wow, you've certainly been paying attention to ATS, when you mention
this frightening scenario, way to go! Star!

we're going to have an immediate need to defend ourself from the "other globalists" in the Asian/Mideastern countries.

Wish I could Star you a second time for these chilling, prophetic words!

You have a very valid point. It's funny how it seems that in order to achieve peace we have to prepare for war. I guess it's hard to choose your battles when everything is worth fighting for.
