At Least 450,000 in Florence
    #1041882 - 11/10/02 11:23 PM (15 years, 16 days ago)

HUGE anti war protest in Florence Italy. At the very least there were half a million there to protest the future Iraq war. Did you hear about this? It got about a 6 sentence blurb in my local paper on the eighth page. Pretty interesting huh?

Saw a tiny bit on the news.
They said about two sentences, one saying that the protestors were against the plans for war, and another emphasizing the importance of "secuirty concerns" in the city.

It does strike me as odd. Half a million people in Florence? Why Florence?

It really happened and smaller protests are happening all the time around Europe. The fact that you don't get it in the news shows how biased media are.

****Invert, that was a particuraly igorant comment about Europe****

no that was my opinion. Or do we have to all pretend that we give a hell about them?

****Uninteresting and boring? Obviously you havent been there and shows how content you are with siping a Pabst and watching Fox News ****

Actually i've been there about 5 times..been to Germany, England, scotland, wales, Italy, France, Austria....so yes i have been there with the exception of the Architecture i wasn't to impressed but had a good time nonetheless (the infrastructure in Europe sucked)

is that the only answer you can come up with that people are sipping some cheap beer and listen to Fox news? (which really has nothing to do with the fact that Europe is uninteresting).....as a side note when i drink beer it's usually Labattes Blue, Guiness or other imports..so get it right next time.

Ok, you got me on teh gdp thing, but the infrastructure sucked? What? You can take a train or bus anywhere in Europe. I have no idea what you meant by that! There is a lot more to europe than the architecture man. Looks like you missed a lot.

Your location says it all. Crackerville. I just have this image of you cheering when Bush talks about bombing people with a beer gut, a beer in one hand, and a rifle in the other. I hope Im wrong. So, invert, do you do any type of drug? Or do you just come to this site to debate with pussy hippie libbies? You just seem a little off base for this site.

This is not a beauty & richness contest. USA claims to be the leader of the free & civilized world but prefers to stick with "democratic" countries like Saudi Arabia, Izrael & co.  :grin:
