More Destruction and Hatred From the Left...

G-8 Protesters Clash With German Police
By David Rising

Protesters with black hoods and bandanas covering their faces showered police with rocks and beer bottles Saturday, before the heavily armored officers drove them back with water cannon and tear gas during a rally against an upcoming Group of Eight summit.

Black smoke from burning cars mingled with the sting of tear gas in the harbor-front area of the northern German town of Rostock, where tens of thousands of people had gathered peacefully at the start of the day. The clashes broke out among hundreds of stone-throwing demonstrators and police on the edges of the crowd as the rally progressed.

Some 146 police were hurt, 25 of them seriously. Police said they made 17 arrests.
It was an unruly start to what is expected to be a week of rallies against the three-day G-8 summit beginning Wednesday in the fenced-off coastal resort of Heiligendamm, 14 miles from Rostock.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will host the leaders of Britain, France, Japan, Italy, Russia, Canada and the U.S. for discussions on global warming, aid to Africa and the global economy.

The summit, like past ones, is attracting protesters opposed to capitalism, globalization, the war in Iraq and the G-8 itself.

Hey off topic here friends but Anne and I are trying to find the answer to a vexing question. Does anyone know what the name was of those carved wooden figures of a woman or mermaid that was on the bows of those old sailing ships of the 17th. and 18th. centuries? Its driving us nuts. Thanks.

DONAL I read FPM's article, an evening with Christopher Hitchens. It's worth a read.
These wackos who tear up Germany are the same ones who did the damage in Seattle years ago. I have no problem sending the CIA or FBI after them and using "extreme prejudice" to eliminate them when they commit this type of internal terrorism. We should go after the leaders and those who fund them. An investigation into the funding should help to expose Soros and Heinz Kerry (through the Tides Foundation).
