Violence Breaks Out At Pro-Peace Demonstration

Cindy Sheehan should thank this veteran for pushing her around, or else this rally never would have gotten nearly as much attention:

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (CBS13) ― An unidentified military veteran was involved in a tense confrontation with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and the group Code Pink at a rally at Travis Air Force Base on Saturday, November 28, 2009.

Anti-war group Code Pink demonstrated at the military base Saturday morning in the first of six planned protests against unmanned military drones currently in use in overseas war zones.

The action starts at about 2:05. Police and reporters out-number both protesters and counter-protesters. The video ends with one of the fugly harpies from Code Pink telling a police officer she wants to press charges against the veteran.

Can you imagine the ear-bleed that would happen if Cindy Sheehan hit you with that yelp through a megaphone at point-blank range? Hard to blame the vet for the instictive reaction to make it stop. Code Pink must have lengthy seminars on nails-on-a-chalkboard screeching 101.

For the record, I’m against the military’s use of unmanned drones over Afghanistan and Iraq too. Therefore, I propose filling them up with Code Pink hags before each mission.
