On The Verge of Violence?
As more money is spent and more lives lost, more protests rage on.
During the days of Vietnam we saw tear gas and violent confrontations in the street.
As we enter the country's fifth year of fighting in Iraq, some fear today's protests may paint the same picture.
Today witnesses say a protest right here in Gainesville seemed to get a little out of hand. It temporarily closed down 13th Street and University Avenue and forced the National Guard's office to lock its doors.
Experts say Americans are growing increasingly impatient. Something they say, could be dangerous.
"The longer they go on, the more sensational they become," says WCJB Political Analyst Richard Buckner. "We see that in social movements of the past."
Just last night President Bush urged Americans to be patient. He also said progress is being made in Iraq but success will quote "take months, not days or weeks."
