    And what gives anyone the right to trespass and disrupt a business ?
    These "protesters" got what they deserved.

    The protesters were not violent as far as I can tell. The oil traders were. The protesters did not pose a physical threat to them, although they may have perceived the protesters appearance as a financial threat.

    It doesn't matter whether the so-called protesters were violent.
    They were trespassing.
    They were disrupting business and preventing people from doing their jobs.
    They deserve what they got and do not deserve any sympathy whatsoever.

    Again, where does it say these self-styled protesters have the right to invade private property for some trumped up "cause" of their own ?

    So you believe violence is always justified do you anonymous?

    A non-violent protest deserves a violent response, eh? I think we know how to sum up your morality, or rather lack thereof.

    Sorry, those traders broke the law by assaulting people and they deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Exactly, djeb. It's amazing what some people support isn't it. I posted one article yesterday with a poll which showed that 27% of Americans would agree with "nuking" terrorist facilities, and 39% of those questioned said that torture is ok. I do worry about some who call themselves "human" sometimes.

    27% of Americans would agree with "nuking" Fort Benning? Woah! Just imagine.

    That 39% segment is now destroying one of the claims the U.S. has when it makes its obligatory declaration of noble intent when it is attacking countries.

    I always consider it rather ironic djeb, when leaders make these "noble" claims when invading countries. However, when you have a base figure of 27% who would agree with basically anything, jumping upto 39% for torture, you don't have to make too many noble claims I suppose to persuade another 12% of the population of the "rights" of the cause.
