This is just despicable. To protest so their opinions can be heard is one thing. To try and physically prevent necessary life saving equipment to our troops is a whole different animal:
TACOMA, Wash. (AP)— Five more anti-war protesters were arrested at the Port of Tacoma early Tuesday after a peaceful demonstration that included blocking train tracks.
The five were arrested for investigation of criminal obstruction and booked into Pierce County Jail, said police detective Brad Graham.
No injuries or property damage were reported, Graham said.
So far, 37 people have been arrested since demonstrations began March 3 at the port to try to block shipment of Stryker armored fighting vehicles to Iraq. The vehicles will be used by 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, which is scheduled to leave nearby Fort Lewis for Iraq next month.
Between 75 and 100 protesters were at the port Monday night.
Tacoma police plan to have a round-the-clock presence at the port until the military equipment leaves.
Preventing supplies from reaching our troops on the front lines is something I’d expect our enemies to do. By blocking the deployment of these vehicles, these protesters are going way beyond freedom of speech; they are working for the benefit of our enemies.
