Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, along with other protesters stood outside Nellis AFB, chanting in opposition to President Obama's plan to deploy an additional 30 to 35 thousand troops to Afghanistan.
"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.
But Sandra Kuta, a blue star mom with a son in Iraq points out that people sign up voluntarily and the military oath they take represents their commitment to the entire nation.
"I would like nothing more than to have my son back home, but he has a job to do," said Kuta.

The Libertarian Case for Free Trade And Restricted Immigration 2014 11 25
It is frequently maintained that "free trade" belongs to "free immigration" as "protectionism" does to "restricted immigration." That is, the claim is made that while it is not impossible that someone might combine protectionism with free immigration, or free trade with restricted immigration, these positions are intellectually inconsistent, and thus erroneous.
