Ok, why are they protesting? Do they like it when Saddam gasses his own people? Do they like Saddam executing someone for tearing up a newspaper with his picture on it? For making a joke about him? For holding rallies? These people are ignorant. They are peace nick hippies only when it comes to Saddam. Ask me they are being funded by Saddam to hold these protests.

These people apparently are unaware of what peace really is.
This data from NY1 reporter talking to an NYPD Captain on 1st avenue reading a list of events...
100 Arrests as of 5:00 PM, more than 20 for Felony assault.
18 NYPD officers injured
4 NYPD police dogs injured (kicked by the crowd)
2 NYPD horses injured, one tackled to the ground by the crowd, it may need to be put down.
Over 150 reports of property damage so far, no cost estimate... three reports are of innocent people who simply were surrounded by the crowd while trying to get somewhere in their car.
