UPDATE: Now here's a strange thing: The only mention of this story (now almost 2 days old) found in a search on Google News is a story on Alternet.com. And you know what? The Alternet site isn't coming up. Just a coincidence, I'm sure. I originally found the story with a still picture from the video on AmericaBlog.
Welcome to the jungle, er, the New Dawn, ah, morning in amerika? Video of Tanks at anti-war protest in LA : LA IMC:
LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM two armored tanks showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood. The tanks circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered. Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street. The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but about ten minutes the tanks drove off. It is unclear as to why the tanks were deployed to this location. Uploaded here is video from the event.
