Protesters want all troops out of Afghanistan

KANSAS CITY, Missouri - A group of local protesters do not want 33,000 troops home from Afghanistan; they want all of them out.

Thursday night, protesters gathered at the J.C. Nichols Fountain at 47th Street and Main on the Country Club Plaza to show their frustration with President Obama's announcement.

The group doesn't think the president is sending troops home fast enough or ending the war.

"Many people in this country are suffering. When we pour lots of money and lots of resources into on-going wars, then the country does not have resources to take good care of its people," said Jane Stoever.

Protesters did agree that Obama is making the right steps to withdrawing troops, just not soon enough.
