Yes, they're at it again. Supporters and detractors of the United States military battled it out in Berkeley for at least the sixth time this year: the latest in a relentless series of protests and counter-protests trying to seize the upper hand in the controversy over the "Marine Corps Officer Selection Office" on Shattuck Square.

Saturday’s Summer Solstice showdown featured Move America Forward, the Marines Motorcycle Club, the Patriot Guard Riders and other veterans’ and pro-America groups facing off against their traditional adversaries: World Can’t Wait, Code Pink, the Revolutionary Communist Party, assorted 9/11 Truthers, far-left activists and their fellow travelers.

Let the battle commence!

    Why is Berkeley so weird? Those Nazi salutes are absolutely disgusting slander against the Marines. Since when do the Marines haul people off to concentration camps where they get tortured and slaughtered just because of their race? I’m glad some veterans were there to counter those fools.

    Do you sometimes get the feeling that Code Pink are all on furlough from a psych hospital? Ya know, treatment resistant, meds aren’t helping, but you gotta let them get fresh air and sunshine once in a while?

    Ironic that the kind of stuff these guys get upset about happening at Abu Ghraib is the kind of stuff they do in San Francisco for fun.

    Torture isn’t a career option? Tell that to a dominatrix or a gay gigilo.
