Our monthly protest against a drone command center in Horsham, PA also addressed the proposed bombing of Syria. Here's a 10 minute speech
by President Obama where he sums up his case for bombing Syria in terms of international credibility when weapons like nerve gas are used. Rally at 50th and Baltimore
. Deena Stryker's link to Assad interview
. If/when the bombing starts, gather at 15th & Market at 4:30pm the next day to protest alongside Philly Against War.
What's the evidence that nerve gas was used by the regime of President Bashar Assad? RT ... â€śEvery dog deserves two bitesâ€ť - Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
Has Larry Summers already had his â€śtwo bitesâ€ť? I would argue that yes, he has, and that he doesn't deserve any more. First bite is his role in the economic crisis that began with the collapse of the housing bubble in late 2007: The crowd started out as a fairly modest gathering (Ultimately grew to 110 people). The wall and buildings in back of us are part of Fort McNair, where Major General Buchanan , who will make the final decision on Bradley Manning, is staying. If the decision is a good one and he acknolwedges that Manning is a legitimate whistleblower, then this will be our last demonstration on Manning's behalf. If not, we'll conduct at least one final one. Update: Good news and really bad news. The "aiding the enemy" charge was dismissed, but Manning got a sentence that could stretch to 138 years. Consider that "Bradley Manningâ€™s alleged disclosures have exposed war crimes, sparked revolutions, and induced democratic reform. He is the quintessential whistleblower."
I traveled with seven other people in a van. Had a decent time chatting with them on the way down. The rest of the park that we were in fronts on the Potomac River.
On a hot summer day, hundreds of supporters of Pfc. Bradley Manning gathered outside the gates of Fort Meade in Maryland, where Manningâ€™s trial is scheduled to begin on June 3. They came on Saturday from cities on the east coast and other parts of the United States to show their support for someone they consider to be not only a whistleblower but also a hero.

Politifact is not a source that anybody should take seriously.
So, a sort-of, kind-of liberalish columnist publishes this. Gets lots and LOTS of comments. A liberal commenter (Comments are deleted after a few days, so these won't be up for the long term) ...
