I UNDERSTAND HER PAIN, BUT SHE'S STARTING TO TAKE IT TOO FAR.
So this mother, Cindy Sheehan, who has now become synonymous with the anti-Iraq war movement due to the death of her 24 year-old son Casey got arrested for yet another one of her protests.
Mind you, I know the woman is heartbroken and in sorrow no doubt for the rest of her life due to the premature and tragic death of her son, but her anti-war message is starting to get embarrassing! Yes, it is a controversial stance I am taking, but if her son hadn't voluntarily enrolled in the military, then he would not have been shipped out and killed. She was also quoted once as saying that she was on the side of the terrorists and that they were "freedom fighters".
That's where I draw the line. F**K the terroriztz! They're nothing but evil life-taking assholes! It's because of them that we hear the daily horror strories of our soldiers (including Sheehan's son) getting blown up and shredded to bits!
I do not know what it's like to lose a son, and like I said earlier, I do feel for her and her pain. But even her other family members and other mothers who have lost their sons in combat say that Cindy does not speak for all of them, and that her rhetoric is only helping to give the enemy more ammunition to attack our forces.
I too would love to see our boys come home and out of that shithole, but alas, we gotta realistically now finish what has already been undoubtedly started.
