Come on, at least make the great leap of faith that someone can be both
in favor of regime change, AND opposed to achieving that regime change
with a war. Further, I should think it's not necessary to make every
protest a somber and serious moment. The fact that some people are abe
to have fun and put forth a political message at thte same time does not
necessarily undermine the essence of the message itself.
I acknowledge that there were people who probably went to the protests
just for the party. I refute the idea that anyone seen having a good
time was only there for the party. People are social animals, they like
to have fun - even when they're being serious.
