There is more planned protests listed on CP's webpage for Saturday and Sunday.

Flag-draped coffins, crosses (where's the ACLU when you need 'em) , candles. All celebrating "commemorating" the deaths in Iraq. These people make me sick. Of course Medea Benjamin tries to justify her organization's actions in this article.

I propose that today we honor our veterans by granting them a one-day "beat a protester" license.

These protesters aren't welcome in Milwaukee:

I will not allow anything political," Mary AnnD'Aquisto, president of Veterans Day Parade of Milwaukee Inc., said Tuesday.
She appeared at a news conference called by John Zutz, a leader of the local peace group, to denounce the action.
"You're trying to use our parade to further your political agenda," D'Aquisto told Zutz. "It's a political organization; not a veterans organization."
Damn skippy.
