Times Square activists urge peace, not war
"Hundreds of people marched peacefully from Union Square to Times Square to demonstrate against U.S. military action in the wake of terrorist attacks that leveled the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon, killing thousands.
'Peace, not war,' chanted many of the crowd, many of whom appeared old enough to have been involved in similar demonstrations in the early 1970s.
Police estimated the crowd size at 900; an organizer estimated it to be 'in the thousands.'
'We feel that the acts committed last Tuesday are a crime against humanity and that those responsible should be held accountable,' said a release to the news media announcing the Friday evening march.
'We now have international mechanisms such as the International Criminal Court and the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal as forums for international justice. We call on the Bush administration to embrace these mechanisms and to work with the U.N. and the international community to prosecute these and other war criminals.'"
Wake up you fools your country was attacked! While your peace thoughts are nice, its misguided in this situation. To not defend ourselves would appear as weakness, and weakness invites more attacks. As soul brother said tonight, some idiots need to be lined up in a row and slapped hard repeatedly until they get it.
