Un-friggin-believable

Some morons at the Army Reserve Center in Westwood, California decided to drive armored personnel carriers past an anti-war demonstration:

From Polizeros:
What dimbulb at the Army Reserve Center up the street from the Federal Building determined this would be a swell time to send armored personnel carriers driving around Westwood and into an antiwar demo?

When two APCs got stuck at a traffic light, protestors swarmed around them. Those with the ANSWER Coalition chanted "Bring the troops home now" while regrettably those with another group yelled "baby killers." Sharp thinking there, bozos. Y'see, if you are actually serious about antiwar organizing and not just jerking off, then you want to convince soldiers to join you. Chanting 'bring the troops home now' might well resonate with a reservist nervous about being shipped to Iraq.
...
Even the police looked nervous when this was happening. Not so much at the protestors but at the APCs. Probably wondering how anyone could be dumb enough to send them into an antiwar demo.
There's a QuickTime Video of the incident.
