A good read

Tremoglie: Anatomy Of An Anti-War Rally--The ignorant, the foolish, the incompetent, the hypocritical and those with ulterior motives
An anti-war protester friend of mine once asked me - does it really matter if the anti-war movement is led by communist, pro-Palestinian or anarchist groups. Politics makes strange bedfellows she said. My reply was to ask her if she would participate in a protest led by David Duke, formerly of the Ku Klux Klan. After all, he has a lot in common with United for Peace and Justice. Duke opposes the war in Iraq just as UPJ does. Duke is pro-Palestinian and opposes aid to Israel, just as members of UPJ do. She did not respond.
