Since I'm no longer here in any official/neutral capacity, I get to have opinions.

And, my opinion is that some of these protesters (specifically the two with the bullhorns) are real assholes.

There has already been one pointless verbal altercation with some of the police officers pictured here, over the fact that they weren't being allowed to deviate from the route they'd already agreed to follow.

The other distasteful aspect is how quickly this march slid into being as much an anti-Israel march as an anti-Iraq War march.

That's the problem with these protests: no matter what the protest is SUPPOSED to be about, in practice they always end up being about exactly the same constellation of issues.

This was entertaining and all, but it's time to bail.
