Tanks in the Streets

Indymedia LA:
LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM two armored tanks showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood. The tanks circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered. Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street. The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but about ten minutes the tanks drove off. It is unclear as to why the tanks were deployed to this location. Uploaded here is video from the event.

Okay. It didn't register right away. I thought I read it wrong. Then I watched the video. That's unbelievable stuff. It may seem insignificant, but ask yourself: "why would two tanks show up at some random anti-war protest in Los Angeles?" Is there any possible explanation?

Tanks aren't something we see roaming in streets. Not many people own tanks either. So these tanks must've been ordered there by a high-profile person, if not the government. Let's say it's the government, why would they send tanks to a protest that's not doing too hot? And why tanks? Why not just send cops or secret service? Consipracy theorists help me out on this.
