“We are supporting the troops and we want them back home safely,” said Meg Green.
The activists also sounded off against the use of drones, which are unmanned aircraft controlled and launched by soldiers at bases around the world. Cindy Sheehan, the California mother, whose son was killed while serving in Iraq in 2004 has been traveling with the peace caravan. But Sheehan and the group were confronted by a military sergeant at Travis AFB where the protest turned heated and was anything but peaceful.
“He got very aggressive with us. He pushed and shoved us. That’s not right,” said Sheehan.The anti war protesters say all troops should be pulled out of the region. And with banners that read “resist,” “refuse,” “don’t go,” we asked them about the message they are sending out to the soldiers.
“We’re telling them to use their conscience before they decide to go to war,” Sheehan added.
Ms.Sheehan,I very much doubt you are reading any of these posts,but I must commend you on your fight to end this war;however,I am appaled about how you talk and display your displeasure directly towards our servicemen and women.I am deeply offended by how you reacted toward the older war veteran and doubt very highly that even know you’re son died on the field of battle that he would not want his own Mother doing such things to his “War Brother”.Please,you need to be standing at the Pentagon….
