Protesters greet Rice in the UK

Officials of the George Bush administration just can’t travel abroad without people in the world letting them know how much the U.S. fucked up starting the war in Iraq. It’s like Vietnam all over again. Everyone in the world sees what an ass were making of ourselves except us.

According to the BBC News, 31 March 2006:

In Liverpool on Friday evening she (US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) was greeted by dozens of anti-war protesters. One was later arrested for breach of the peace in the city centre.

Earlier she saw protesters at a school in Jack Straw's Blackburn constituency.

She then went to Sir Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) for a concert in her honour.

Anti-war anthem

In Liverpool city centre on Friday night one anti-war protester was arrested and he is being questioned by police.

Earlier one student outside LIPA said it was a "disgrace" that Ms Rice had been invited to the academy when the former Beatle was an anti-war campaigner.

Protesters greet Rice.
