Marines from L Company, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, pause along a berm while taking part in Operation Northern Forge, a mission designed to deny the safe havens on the north side of the Euphrates River to insurgents.
For all of those bags of dog crap out there so full of energy to protest this country, the leadership and its heroes, you need to take a lesson from the recent “anti-war” demonstration in DC.
Regardless how the Communist News Network portrayed it or only showed pics of the weak side of things, it was a strong showing that America is still America
and although you are free to say what you want, you better not disrespect those who have died for that right. Perhaps you should listen to how the below was written. I will give you one recommendation; it would be unadvisable to not stand during the National Anthem in sight of me. I will take corrective action.

St Patrick’s Day began early with temps of 32 and wind chill creating temps into the high teens and 20s. But the night before at Walter Reed Hospital, snow covered the ground and Troop supporters out numbered the “Pinkos” 3 to 1 and of course they left early because it was too chilly for their tootsies.
When I arrived at the Viet Nam Memorial at 0930 there was easily 9,000 supporters there and maybe 500 “idiots” milling around. Then one of “them” handed me one of their prefabricated mass produced “traitor” signs as if I wanted to carry the shit stick, I broke it over my knee and threw it to his feet. He got the point.
On Saturday, March 17 -- St. Patrick's Day -- there is a march planned in Washington, D.C., that has nothing whatsoever to do with Blessed Patrick.
Instead, as reported by columnist Michelle Malkin: "On that day, well-funded celebrity-studded anti-war groups plan to march to the Pentagon, on a protest route that will take them past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and climax in calls for immediate withdraws of our troops from Iraq, destruction of America's global military machine, shutdown of the enemy combatant detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay and impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney (plus an end to 'colonial occupation' in Palestine, Haiti and everywhere 'for good measure')."
The last time this anti-war mob assembled in our nation's capital:
How much more do you want of us? We wait here in dismay as you plan to disrupt our serenity, your placards screaming of ‘Peace’. Don’t you know there is no war here – only blessed release from the pain and agony of our journey to this hallowed place? Don’t sully it with your anger – do not demean it with your slogans. Here, there is commiseration, not turmoil, solace, not confrontation. Take your anger to those who caused it.

Just a heads up. Anarchist and communist groups plan to spray paint the Vietnam wall and the Pentagon.

About the demo on March 17th:
People who are planning a black bloc, youth bloc, SDS bloc or something like that should announce it so more than 10 people can join in and make it worthwhile.
