What protesters think of the Iraqi Elections

Darleen of Darleen's Place live blogged the event in San Diego. She has exclusive pictures there of both the protests and the counter-protests. She also has a follow up post on the days events.

Citizen Smash was also at the San Diego event and has more images and commentary, including another shot of "finger woman" above and transcripts of the speeches that were given by their leaders.

Rob at Say Anything questions what these people are protesting.

What is it exactly that they are protesting?

Are they standing against Iraq’s newly-elected government which was put into power by a popular and free vote of the people?

Are they protesting the fact that woman can now vote in Iraq?

Are they protesting Iraq’s rebuilt infrastructure?

Are they against the re-built hospitals and schools?

Da Goddess has more, including yet another picture of "finger woman".

Joe Gandelman covered the event and is posting over at Dean's World. He's sure to have a nice non partisan view of the event. He does comment that the turnout was very small though.

Slant Point attended the Protest Warriors counter protest in NYC. He has some pictures and commentary on the event and even more pictures here.

Wizbang has a couple pictures and shows a more interesting protest, that of Iraqi's at the Jordanian embassy.

Cry Freedom laments on what a protester carrying a sign saying "Victory to the Iraqi Resistance" was thinking and stands for.

Hengineer covers the London anti-war protests.

Keith Taylor at SortaPundit takes a look at the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the oxymoron of the group carrying a sign with "No War On Iran" on it. In an effort to make them a more "non-oxymoronic" group he applies for an internship there and discusses his relevant skills. He also has some Photoshopping goodness.

Flopping Aces has a whole load of pics including one from protests by the "Witches Opposing War", I kid you not.

Bookworm Room was offended by the protests. I can't see why really, from what I've seen it was relatively mild and a failure.

Iraq Calling has some comments on some of the headlines in papers attempting to tie counties troop withdrawals to the anti-war protests. It's quite a hoot including this gem "As Anti-War sentiments mounts, nations drop out of US coalition". If anything the lack of protesters should send a sign that more people have realized that things are actually working.

The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler takes the BBC to task for it's fallacious reporting of the protests and their pumping of the numbers.

You know something strange? LATimes has one column covering CA "anti-war" protests..totally sympathetic to the protesters, not one mention of counter-protesters and not one mention that there was a demonstration in San Diego

Wow. What MSM coverage!

You're welcome, Henry.

Darleen, That is the most ridiculous article I've ever read. Talk about leaving out too much stuff! I like how they tried to spin the smaller crowds by adding, "but there were more military than usual!"

I do like that they added the business owners angle in. Funny how the only one they could find that liked the crowds was a street vendor.
