Zombie » Day of FAIL: Nationwide anti-capitalist revolution flops is the best coverage of what "days of rage" turned into: a fiasco.

Given how interesting G20 summit protests can become (in the cursed "interesting times" fashion), there is probably fair reason to expect something to have happened.

One must admit that in that context, having the "capitalist fat cats" all gathered in one place does act as a motivator. Even so, the nothing that actually did happen on this occasion is... fairly telling.

I think what notebuyer is trying to say is "We all secretly expected this thing to be a flop, but nobody ever thought it would flop quite this badly." IIRC Kaiser Wilhelm II called Belgium's intent to resist "the rage of dreaming sheep", but it would have been better applied to this occasion.
