...because the protests are not about patchouly and
non-violence just as this war is not about defending
freedom and civilization from evil terrorist.  

people are trying to shut up the protesters because
they are speaking out about what this is really about,
namely asserting control over a region rich of
resources that our wasteful lifestyles are so
dependent on.  

i'm fairly confident in stating that wars are never
about ideology or religion, they are about resources,
but politicians and corporations like people to focus
on the threat to their ideals and values because that
seems easier to justify.

here's one article that might help, hope the link
