News feeds are filtering through the matrix about the G20
summit in Pittsburgh, with videos of protesters being blasted by sound cannons
and police lines marching like storm-troopers toward an unarmed crowd. Declared
an unlawful assembly by the police because they don't have a permit, the
protesters are being subjected to the same militant techniques used in Iraq by
the U.S. military and its allies. That's right America, you don't have the right
to assembly unless it is approved by the state and if you attempt to protest
without permission.... you may be treated like an "enemy combatant".
These aren't terrorists or militant insurgents in some foreign land..... they
are U.S. citizens trying to exercise their right to free speech, without
permission from big brother. In order to protect the leaders of the world from a
few hundred protesters, US security forces turned
piercing sound weapons on U.S. citizens
invoking widespread
criticism
.


Sonic weapons or long-range
acoustic devices
have been used by the US military overseas, notably against
Somali
pirates
and Iraqi
insurgents
. However officials from Pittsburgh claim that it was the first
time
"sound cannon" had been used publicly. The sonic weapons are
highly effective for crowd control, more effective than controversial kettling
tactics
used against G20 protesters in London, and some fear the sounds
emitted are loud enough
to damage the eardrums of the targets and possibly
even cause fatal aneurysms.


It seems that it is OK to bring loaded
weapons
to a rally against healthcare reform, but a march against the New
World Order is treated much differently. These police and military resources
aren't being used to protect national security, freedom, or the
constitution..... they are being employed to protect the worlds
leaders and the oligarchy
that controls them.


With only a few hundred protesters to mark the opening day of the summit of
world leaders, the military and police were taking no chances. One reporter from
an MSNBC video can be Quoted as saying, "..... they've got riot fences that
have lined the sidewalks, helicopters, gunboats, humvees, they've pulled out
obviously an arsenal of .. uh... equipment and individuals to protect those
world leaders there and, as you pointed out, to keep them away from the
protesters.. uh... city officials also announce according to reports 1000 jail
cells ready for any lawbreakers....."

I'm just a regular guy trying make sense of an ever perplexing world. Never been interested in selling myself to the public, so my "bio" may seem a little lacking in that certain "me" flair. Writing has been a hobby for many years, and since 9-11 (more...)
