Protesting on a military base will never achieve anything. It unfortunately becomes trouble making as the personnel on the base are not in a postition to influence, or negotiate what is being protested. I agree with U2Bama. I'm wondering about regular civilians? I would have thought they weren't allowed to wander around at their will, protestors most certainly shouldn't as they can pose a potential risk.

I picked the first one, and i think the other two instances are even worse. I don't think protesters should fire their arguments outside of a military base. They are not the one making the decisions- it is the president and our leaders making the decisions. The military have been trained to follow those decisions, whatever they are. And if our military has to go to war, I want them psychologically prepared, not all f'ed up in the head b/c they remember some signs people held.

SOrry if this came off as against-protesting, b/c I'm not, I believe everyone has a right to speak their mind, but I don't think it should interfere with jobs the military are performing.

or, what screaming said. lol
