The whole world is watching?

The US employed a “pre-emptive strike” in Iraq in March 20, 2003, which didn’t go so well, not to mention being a crime against humanity. But at home during the conventions, so-called “pre-emptive strikes” have done a good job of stifling protest and minimizing media coverage. These occurred during marches and even before the Convention began.

One of the protestors at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in St. Paul said, “the whole world is watching,” but that’s just not the case today as it was in 1968.

One thought on “The whole world is watching?

  1. I’m left wondering why so little media coverage about this. The world wasn’t watching. Was Amy Goodman’s arrest from “Democracy Now!” a significant enough threat to the competing, mainstream media that they didn’t want to draw attention to it? Makes me wonder.
