Will history repeat?

• Topics: War & Peace,
Anti-War demonstration next Tuesday in New York will probably be big. Bush will be speaking at the UN on that day to further his Iraq war. Demonstrators are being denied permits - and we can expect a big show from both sides. Expect the Feds and NYPD to provoke a violent reaction from at least a few demonstrators which will give them their lame excuse to bash heads of the many. Much like Seattle in '99 - and Chicago in '68.
