Re: “Your NATO/G8 primer

It seems like this entire city is clueless and living in a fantasy world. If you want to see what to expect look at some of the past history of these summits. We can expect anywhere from 200K to 400K protesters...and it very well could be more with the current state of affairs in this country. Lets say 90% of protesters ARE peaceful...that still leaves 20K to 40K+ out to destroy this city. Good luck controlling 40K people out to loot the city. Not to mention the criminals in this city who will use this as an opportunity to cause their own brand of chaos.

Other cities/countries hosting these events have spent from a few 100 million to over a billion dollars for Toronto in 2010 and they still did not have much luck in controlling the protests or preventing riots/looting. Other cities have fenced off areas of their city...it does not seem like we are doing any of this. Why do we not seem to have any idea what is headed our way? There is plenty of past history of these events that we should know what is coming and we should be scared and prepared...because this is not going to be a joke.

When this city goes up in flames the number one person to blame should be the mayor (and president). This city is not ready and this is his show and his responsibility.
