President George Bush flew into a stormy reception last night on his first foreign trip since re- election, as tens of thousands of protesters sought to disrupt a summit of leaders from Asia and the Americas.

Police used tear gas and water cannon as dozens of masked youths broke off from a rally of up to 50,000 people to throw rocks, tear up park benches and hurl molotov cocktails in the Chilean capital, Santiago. Several officers and protesters were injured, with at least 130 arrests.

Hundreds of protesters have been arrested throughout Chile over the past week, and thousands of additional police are on duty in Santiago for the largest security operation since the papal visit in 1987.

What is silly is it the article?
Is it the fact that the poster agrees with the protesters?
Is it the fact that the poster wishes they got physical with Bush?
Is it the fact that the poster has stated something that the majority of the world would most likely agree with?
What is silly,,, is you calling some one a derogatory name for voicing there opinions of witch you dont agree,

I am calling him a scumbag for wishing harm on the President of the United States not because I disagree with his opinions.

Now whats worse calling someone a name or wishing DEATH or INJURY for the President of the United States because you don't agree with his policies. Scumbag? YES

Of course I suppose there is nothing wrong with wishing death or dismemberment on Bush.

Does that mean I can say I hope Kerry falls into a whole and dies?

or

Arafat is dead....thank God its about time?

I saw the protest on TV, and they were violent, it tell you how much other countries love the president of the US.

I guess even third world countries can see what our Mr. president has done to Iraq and how is impacting the world.

The only people that can not see the truth are Mr. president followers.

What a pity

Really imas, may I ask from what sources the poll was taken and in what part of the city, because I bet that the people that did the polls were not allowed outside of the city you know with all the violence around the country.



I got it it was from the Mr. Bush sympatizers that can not wait to become part of the elite in that country, humm.........I wonder.

Right. You have to consider:

a. The conflict of interest present with the conducter of the poll. Was it the US government or the new puppet government? Obvious one here.

b. What demographic of people was polled?
It's unlikely that they have the manpower to poll large sections of the population. Thus the poll would be of maybe a few hundred people.

c. How many resistance fighters do you think they polled?

FOX News reported the poll on tv. So I guess you will assume it to be fake and make up your own informations.

You didn't answer me. Have you been to Iraq? Why is it that you think you know what the Iraqis feel? I also questioned your sources. I'm thinking you have none. You just second guess and make up your own opinions and choose what you want to believe with no basis. You don't believe the good news and you embrace all the bad.

They said it on FOX News. If I had a link for a source I would produce it. But I will do a search on it.

I only found this article about an election poll in Iraq and this one shows Kerry as being prefered by Iraqis. The main reason is many were disappointed by reconstruction efforts and hoped Kerry would do better.

I wish I could find a link to what I had heard from fox.

Which goes to show that most polls mean absolutely nothing.

Again, I call you to think of who is conducting the poll (and thus raising questions about bias and accuracy) and the demographic being polled.

Back to topic:


This protest looks a lot like the WTO protests in Seattle back in '99.
Anyone remember that? Happened in the good ole USA..
And under a different president..Remember him? He has his own "lie-bury"
Now...


And, at 500,000, the Palestinian community in Chile is the largest outside the Middle East. Which may explain MORE completely, the reasons for the Anti-US, Anti-Bush statements.

I guess your answers means that you have been in Iraq and that you were part of the people that perform the poll.

Now how the Kurdish feel about bush, I tell you they care less what is going on in the rest of Iraq as long as US does not interfere with their planned autonomy.

How about the Sunnis well they hate bush and anything that is against their religious believes.

And the Shiites well they are the ones that will go alone with Mr. Bush, I see now who was in the polls, but let not forget that the majority is Sunni in that country.

Well imas we have some conflicts of interest in the tribes that form the Iraqi nation.

But you know all about this because obviously you make yourself an expert in the matter.
