Again, I don't understand.
People are protesting left and right. OWS, the Tea Party, Ron Paul, Rand Paul, newspapers, even this Tim Thomas from the Boston Bruins. Tens of thousands of pro-life protesters in DC. FEMA camps don't get called into play. There's no mass oppression. Barking up the wrong telephone pole.
(The above is just my opinion based on observation. I have no "insider" facts and would be pleased to be corrected.)

Students, do not protest against your government...or else.
This whole 911 event should be clear to every american. If it is not clear the people should demand it to be made clear. But that will not happen, at least...not by the US government.
What happened with the american student. I was just a totler at the time of the anti-vietnam war protests. I did see it on television and the young of today can find images of those massive protest actions on YT or somewhere else.
What is happening now in the world with illegal wars and alleged traitors in the US government is worse in my view. When will it be enough for the US citizen..
Where are the protesters, the massive outrage of the US-people that make the US-congress and presidents think again? Are students not always the front runners of a revolution?
Is the US-student maybe afraid to express his opinion because it is aware of the personal information age and can protests as such damage his or hers career? Especially a government career or a government related career? What life is there after graduation but a study-debt and no work?

You know the more you threaten people the more they resist you.
Bully tactics don't work all the time. It creates division.
What are you afraid of?
Do students having their own opinion scare you?
Or do you know that there are more of us than you.
Yeah you can kill or intimidate a few of us but your not going to kill all of us.
This "conflict" is unwinnable. For all sides of the shape.
Mankind has gotten too smart for its own good. We are living thinking felling people not the borg. f---- fascist collectivism!
Why can't you let people live free and form their own opinions?
Why does a student or other person's opinion matter to you?
I don't wish or want a war, but when people bash the USA for a few people being killed ..as collateral damage, yes, I hate it to, but in reality
