    You are comparing a mostly disorganized mob to people who formed an army and fought for freedom. If the protesters, in either place, formed an actual army, with all the definitions in the Geneva Conventions for lawful combatants (Which Houston and Austin did), it would different. If they want to form an army and abide by the laws of war, then let them, depending on what they are fighting for, I might even support them.

    Ahh, I see. Putting on a costume, err I mean uniform, makes violence OK.

    Is that the only requirement under the Laws of Armed Conflict/War that differentiates a mob from an army? Is that all you know about the subject? Perhaps you should go read the appropriate Laws, found in the Geneva Conventions by the way, then come back and actually make an intelligent comment.

    Look how far you've come from the days of "once anyone perpetuates and incites violence and acts of vandalism, they are no longer protesters and now bring discredit upon themselves and their cause."

    Ah, I see you have taken the opportunity I gave you correct your ignorance on the subject. Haven't came one inch from that statement. Of course, if you were to correct you lack of knowledge, then perhaps you might actually understand.

    Tell me, is there a name we give to people who make statements when they choose to be willfully ignorant of what was said?

    I know that you said "once anyone perpetuates and incites violence and acts of vandalism, they are no longer protesters and now bring discredit upon themselves and their cause." and then retreated from your statement

    It was not a retreat. One statement is about protesters and mobs, one was about Armies. Two different things.

    No one need ask my permission for anything. I am not God, a government or any other granter of permissions.

    As to saving your country, in my opinion, the jury is still out on that and what exactly it is you are doing.

    What I do know is that the protesters are acting like a mob, both the ones from this thread and the ones in Turkey. I do not support mobs. Armies, yes, mobs, no.
