Protesters Torch Uncle Sam After Red Mosque Thrashing
There were dueling protests today in Pakistan following the thrasing on the Red Mosque.
The radical Islamists were outraged over the government crackdown on the militant mosque and madrassa that was harboring terrorists, kidnapping citizens, shooting soldiers, and threatening the nation with Sharia Law.
They burnt effigies of Musharraf and Uncle Sam to show their displeasure:

And, there were the other protests…
There were also protests in support of the Musharraf government.
