Condi comes to Portland

We should say hello to this war criminal
this is how this person should be greeted by us
this is how this person should be greeted by us
Condi in Portland:

Feeling kind of down, want to yell at someone, here is a woman who should be in prison and not walking into the Hilton. I call her the "Wicked Witch of the East." (NO OFFENSE TO GOOD WITCHES)

We will greet this war criminal with bloody hands, she and this good charity should know we are aghast that she would be invited to this noble cause. The theme is to repeat what Ms. Desiree Fairooz, Code Pink, did when she confronted Condi just before she was going to lie to our congress. You can get rubber gloves and spray them with red food dye.

For $65 you can go inside and buy a book and have her sign it for you, me---I will be outside with my bloody hands for all the people going into the Hilton to see. Here are some of the reasons I will take a few hours next Saturday and bear witness for the dead children of Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza, and now Pakistan. This woman should be arrested but our law enforcement people, but they are too busy arresting people trying to survive living on the streets of Portland. We charge Condoleeza Rice with the following war crimes:

War crime charge(s): (from criminal watch)

* Crimes against peace - planning and carrying out a war of aggression.
* Complicity in the commission of a war crime - wanton destruction of cities and villages, devastation not justified by military necessity, ill-treatment of civilian population of or in occupied territory.
* Complicity in the commission of a war crime - torture, ill-treatment of detainees.
