STOP ISRAELI ATTACKS ON LEBANON AND PALESTINE
19-07-2006 21:03Rumsfeld stated in 2002 that he wanted to use Lebanon as a launch-pad for other planned military operations. It might be prudent to revisit the assassination of Rafiq Hariri, and find out who was truly responsible for his death.
19-07-2006 21:03World events have recently taken on the personality of a madman from a bad 60's b grade movie, intent on taking over the world. Maybe that is exactly what's happening.

The Police were hopelessly outnumbered so could do little except stand and watch. They called in reinforcements from just about everywhere including City of London, British Transport Police and local Westminster duty plods. Having no option but to adopt a softly, softly approach they kept well back letting the stewards gently move the protesters back into the square. They then formed a line of vans and officers across the front of the demo and remained until the protest finished. There was no violence, the protest remained loud and angry until the end.
Expect greater numbers on Saturday.
