2000 deaths in Iraq party or memorial? sent someone to the not one dollar more not one more death event in San Francisco and took pictures. You decide if these people are celebrating, or somberly remembering the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Personally I have to call the photos inconclusive. These people certainly are not crying and seem to be in good spirits. However when someone is taking pictures it makes people goofy. Nearly anyone will smile for a camera, and it is San Francisco where people have non traditional celebrations of life vs. funerals all the time. I would love to hear your comments about it.

I actually agree with you on this one. To say these people are celebrating the deaths would be nothing less then untrue. What is the natural reaction when someone is taking your picture, to scowl? If they did scowl there would be criticism of that too. The point is they are exercising their right to voice an opinion of dissent and 2,000 is another milestone. Anyone that thinks protesting is UnAmerican hasn't read our history. Try reading about the "Boston Tea Party" and the East India Company. The event that was the beginning of the Revolution that gave us the freedom we now enjoy. By the way several of those protestors dressed up like American Indians. What would have a camera depicted of that protest?
