Protest War Criminal Tommy Franks!
Tuesday June 28
8:00am-4:45pm
Fleet center One fleet place Boston

Protest War criminal Tommy Franks! Infamous warlord Tommy Franks will be appearing in Boston at a $225 dollar per person motivational seminar for corporate America. “Get Motivated” boasts in their june 6th pgA16 Globe ad that the “four-star general & American War hero” will speak on “from the battlefield to the business world: Strategies that get results”

Some of Franks strategies and there results have been:
The illegal and immoral invasion, occupation and corporate liquidation of Iraq.
The bombing, invasion and occupation of Afghanistan including the slaughter of people in wedding parties, prisons and mosques that also continues unabated.
The military enforcement of a decade long barbaric sanction regime that is estimated to have killed a half a million kids in Iraq.
Its no surprise that this warmonger cut his fangs during the racist American mass murder of south east Asians in Vietnam as a artillery and air strike target selector.

Also appearing with franks will be former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani

Get motivated announced that its most popular feature is a bonus session on “the biblical secrets of success.” call 1 800 423 2069

“..confronting war criminals like the Centcom warlord-general. Let him & his warmonger crowd know that the people despise War, especially one in which the NeoCon Oil Cabal send poor immigrant kids to fight the Oilmen's illegal Aggression.” -protester

"The operations that we undertake go on 24 hours a day. They go on from the air, they go on day, they go on night and as you have seen I think in some of the media we have had elements on the ground in Afghanistan," he said. "The efforts that we're about with regard to what we're after for this objective are going very, very well, and I'll leave it at that at this point." -Tommy Franks

Where would be best to get maximum visibility for a demo? I have stuff around to re-create the Abu Grahib genital-electrode photos, like that guy did at the Army Recruiting Center last year.

Whoa............. Hold up, children! Halloween is a few months off.

Peaceful protesters you guys are NOT! Children dressed as clowns you guys may BE! Do you honestly believe that you are taken seriously with your theatrics? Intelligent adults would be heard but bratty kids who spend their allowance at a costume store will most probably be arrested- as they should be.

General Franks is 100% American hero. Your distortion of the Afghan and Iraq war is the most perfect example of the "Blame America First" logic I have ever seen. Why couldn't you all have been in lower Manhattan on 9/11 and see the secretaries jumping to their deaths. The Taliban hated women, gays, etc. and yet you...miss them ? Would you ever thank Bush for liberating 10 million Afghans ? half of them women ? NEVER, because your ideology blinds you to the truth

"Would you ever thank Bush for liberating 10 million Afghans ? half of them women ? NEVER, because your ideology blinds you to the truth "

Would the American government and military ever take responsibility for funding and putting the Taliban, including Osama Bin Laden, into power in the first place? NO, becuase the American ego is so big that you can crush any truth with it.

Yeah, people who use dramatic re-enactments and art to protest something should be thrown in jail. Why can't they be more like the upstanding police in Boston and fire ceramic paintballs into crowds when they don't like what is going on?
