I think what they are trying to say is that, if you are overseas, and you are alone, do not go near a demonstrations. Regardless of what they are doing, it is best to just keep your head down and avoid what is going on.
The Army has a slew of anti-terrorism training and most of it focuses on you not announcing your presence and letting it known you are a Soldier. You avoid things like traveling in uniform unless on official business (may still do to try and get first class). Don't talk to strangers, etc and whatnot.
It doesn't say that peaceful demonstrations are terrorism, just something to avoid to not get in trouble.

Sorry, but a US Soldier should probably avoid the death to america protests overseas for some rather commonsense reasons...
as far as breaking apart the words, meh...you can break it apart further
demon: things of hell....
Stration: is a family of computer worms that can affect computers running Microsoft Windows, disabling security features and propagating itself to other computers via e-mail attachments
This proves it...demonstrations are tools of the devil to kill the security of your windows machine...
context is important.
anyhow, welcome to ATS.

I think you misunderstood the point of what it was telling the soldiers.
As has been said, it is warning soldiers, to stay away from high risk areas, for their own safety. It is not suggesting that protesting makes you a terrorist.
