  • Where Are They Now?

    Posted by David Foster on August 13th, 2008 (All posts by )

    Regarding the events in Georgia, Neptunus Lex has some questions:

    Millions marched in San Francisco, Rome, Barcelona and London when a US-led coalition of democracies prepared to depose a murderous tyrant – where are they now, when a tyrant seeks to depose a democratically elected government?

    Millions more protested when a wretchedly afflicted people attempted to shake off the chains of 30 year’s oppression, tribalism and superstition to create for themselves and their children a sense of security and a representative government, answerable to the people – where are they now, that a free people has been reacquainted with the rod and beaten back to the yoke?

    Others protested in Florence and Glocestershire when NATO bombers intervened to stop a genocide in Kosovo – where are they now, when bombers and helicopter gunships rain death upon innocents?

    Read the whole thing.

      Brings me back to the 80’s.I don’t remember anyone protesting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan,but I sure do remember all the protests against President Reagan as he confronted that EVIL EMPIRE.

      Continuing Lex’s list:

      3. They don’t believe they have a snowball’s chance in hell of actually influencing the government of Russia (and they’re probably right).
      4. They believe they have a much better chance of influencing the government of the U.S. (but they’re probably wrong).

      Where are the buses that will give them a free ride to wherever the protests are supposed to be held?
