Thai protesters shut down airport

How come we couldn’t/didn’t do this in protest to Bush and his terrible administration? to the war in Iraq?

Excerpts-

“We will stay until the government steps down. This government is not legitimate,” retired university lecturer Sunthorn Kaewlai told the Reuters news agency.”

We certainly have changed, as a people, since the founding days of our country
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure. – Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Where was I in the run up to the war? Well, I attended one protest. Maybe I should ask how come I couldn’t/didn’t do that?
