Berkeley to Marines: You're 'not welcome in our city'

Berkeley City Councils tells Marines to leave.

One giant sign said, "No Military Predators in Our Town." Another message on a pink placard read, "Join the Marines. Travel to Exotic Lands. Meet Exciting and Unusual People -- And Kill Them."

Zanne Joi peered out from under her straw hat. "This Marine recruiting station is trying to recruit our youth to go to Iraq to kill and be killed. And we are against that," said Joi, a member of Code Pink Women for Peace.

"This is part of a multi-pronged effort to end this war."

Protester Sharon Adams added: "This recruiting station recruits people to go fight and then once they fight and they serve their country, our country doesn't take care of them. That's a shame."

More on this later...

Who are these fullish pink people? the word pink speaks for it's self, it truly shows the world how ignorant Americans truly are due to the simple fact that they are trying to hurt an untouchable entity. Who they are truly hurting are those Marines now serving under the Corp, so please think about what you are really doing. History dose repeat itself? Just like those poor boys coming home from Vietnam, BABY KILLERS remember those days! So please leave the servicemen and women alone and go after your elected officials, do not make the same mistake twice.
