Funny, full of irony AP photo from anti-war demostration in Barcelona: “

A demonstrater wearing a burka marches during a demonstration in Barcelona, Spain, Saturday March 15, 2008 marking the fifth anniversary of U.S. led war in Iraq. The demonstrators were protesting against the current occupation of Iraq, Palestinian territories and Afghanistan. Banner reads ‘We Afghan women will free ourselves’. (AP Photo/Carmelo Esteban)

Yet somehow, they don’t see the irony of the burqa wearing woman carrying this banner, a woman who wants to free herself from Americans rather than the from religious prison of Islam.
