    Cindy Sheehan vs. George W. Bush

    Stardate 4373.8

    This is so important I can't believe I missed it.

    Cindy Sheehan's son Casey, was killed in Baghdad on April 4th, 2004. He was fighting for something that at the time may have seemed to be cut and dry, but now we know was not so.

    Now, Cindy wants to ask George W. about the Downing Street Memos, which the mainstream media failed to report on. These documents prove that George W. Bush and Tony Blair had plans to go to war long before any information or investigation about WMDs came out... She wants all the US troops to come home, before nay more lives are lost to a pack of lies.

    Cindy wants to ask George W. why her son died, and for what cause he was truly fighting for. She is currently camped outside George's Crawford Texas ranch, and faces harrassment from all number of agencies regarding the protest. In fact, her and her small group were forced to walk in the ditch as they approached tha ranch, and now, with the threat of arrest, they have been forced to move their tents into the ditch which is habitated by nasty fire ants.

    Maybe Cindy's own words on the Daily KOS should tell more of this story...

    Remember, according to some numbers, over 100,000 civilians have died in the conflict in Iraq. Over 1,800 US troops have died there. Almost 200 non-US troops have died there. When will this horrendous loss of humanity end? I remember reading something a while ago titled "Why did my son have to die?" but the link eludes me. I believe it was her story. How many other people have the same story as this?

    If my son or daughter was killed in action, doing a duty that they are taught from day one is the *right* thing to do, but suddenly exposed as lies, I would be furious.

    "The families of the fallen can rest assured that your loved ones died for a noble cause." - George W. Bush
    What righteous cause?

    It would also seem that if she and her friends are not gone by thursday (the day that Rice and Rumsfeld arrive at the Ranch) they will be arrested as a "threat to National Security"...

    *** Updated ***

    Upon further research, the arrest news is highly overblown and pure speculation from an overzealous person. Here is some info on this... It is still a possibility however.

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
