This is mind-blowing. There was a peaceful anti-war protest in Los Angeles two nights ago, and somebody sent tanks to disperse it. There is video at the linked page.
Nobody is owning up to this move; it sounds like whoever had this idea quickly realized what a fuck-up it was. The military put out some excuses that are patent bullshit. Either the tanks were lost, or they were stuck in traffic, or the company mascot Fido ate their orders.
This fucking country, I'm telling you...
Also, for cryin' out loud, it's Rule #1 for goon squad work in southern California: always take out the guy with the Handi-Cam.
