KIA Soldier's Mom to Confront Bush in Crawford


Cindy Sheehan, Co-Founder of Gold Star Families for Peace, and mother of a soldier killed in action in Iraq, plans to confront President Bush with questions at his Crawford ranch on Saturday morning, August 6, 11 a.m. CT. Accompanying Sheehan will be members of Veteran's for Peace (VFP), Military Families Speak Out (MFSO), Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), CODE PINK, and Crawford Peace House, all members or allies of the AfterDowningStreet.org Coalition.

On Wednesday, Bush said (speaking about the dreadful loss of life in Iraq in August): "We have to honor the sacrifices of the fallen by completing the mission." and "The families of the fallen can be assured that they died for a noble cause."

In response, Sheehan wrote:
"We want our loved ones' sacrifices to be honored by bringing our nation's sons and daughters home from the travesty that is Iraq IMMEDIATELY, since this war is based on horrendous lies and deceptions. Just because our children are dead, why would we want any more families to suffer the same pain and devastation that we are? We would like for him to explain this 'noble cause' to us, and plan to ask him why Jenna and Barbara are not in harm's way, if the cause is so noble. If he is not ready to send the twins, then he should bring our troops home immediately. We will demand a speedy withdrawal."

Sheehan said today that she plans to stay "until we are arrested or satisfied with the answers."

Sheehan will be carrying with her a collection of signatures on a petition asking that the troops be brought home, including 25,000 signatures collected at OutOfIraq.org.

Below are statements from participants in tomorrow's events, as released today by the Institute for Public Accuracy:

DIANE WILSON, WilsonAlamobay@aol.com, Co-founder of the women's peace group CodePink, Wilson is a Texan now on her way to Crawford. She said today: "I totally sympathize with Cindy. The Army tried to recruit my autistic son. They tried to get my daughter to join too, they led her to believe she would be joining the Coast Guard when it was actually the Army. My daughter was needing money, we make our living fishing and have trouble making ends meet, so the military can be tempting. If George Bush really thinks this is such an honorable battle, let me send his twins over there." Wilson wrote the just-released book "An Unreasonable Woman: A True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas."

HADI JAWAD, shadijawad@aol.com, Jawad is spokesperson for the Crawford Peace House and will be accompanying Sheehan from Dallas to Crawford on Saturday.

It is of utmost importance to separate the Honorable Principles America stands-for from the dishonorable and unprincipled behavior of some Americans
For the Honorable Principles America stands-for have absolutely nothing to do with the dishonorable and unprincipled behavior
of some Americans - Petty Officer Jim Cava, USN Ret.
Corpsman/5th Marines, Vietnam 1968

What you have suggested probably close to a half dozen times on this blog is certainly a first step, BUT traitors are traditionally SHOT by firing squad, during time of war and that's what this devious little sh*t deserves. Cheney, Wolfowitz, Gonzales, Rumsfeld, Rice, Frist, DeLay and Bu$h, along with at least 20 others I am too upset to name should each get the same treatment.

We will stay untill the job is done, no matter the cost. Liberty will prevail.
P.F.C Josh Richards, U.S Army, 111th engineers.

Go for it!

This country has endured a true tragedy that simply keeps on getting bigger ... and bigger ... and bigger.

It's not enough that we had the Supreme Court decide a Presidential Election against the will of the majority of Americans who voted, a first. That sham went unaccounted for.

Within a year of that coupe, 9/11 occurs and the nation, instead of looking closely at what had happened and understandably so, backed the very empire that was to start global expansion under the disguise of "The War On Terror". That incredible lapse in any aspect of national security went unaccounted for.

Weeks, not days later, we invade Afghanistan for the soul purpose of removing the Taliban regime, who we were already pissed at for backing out of a drilling contract with Unocal, and capturing Osama bin Laden. We kind of removed the Taliban, but didn't get Osama. Another failure unaccounted for ... or was it.

Then comes the "Axis of Evil" campaign, along with the Valerie Plame outing, that sought to discourage anyone from standing in the way of the United States, both foreign or domestic. Iraq was a country barely intact run by a second rate dictator that didn't even have full control of his entire country at that point. The only reason he had ever amounted to anything was because of the United States having propped him up with lots of weapons in the 80's. Even as recenty as late as 9/11/01, Iraq didn't even register on the list of countries that sponsored "terrorism". They had "WMD". They wanted uranium from Niger. All of it was lies and, even as we speak, George Bush continues to ignore his own errors and lies even while Americans are STILL dying over there. He is still trying to bring Iraq into the "The War On ... wait, "The Global Struggle Against Extremism" ... whatever the hell this is called. He lied to America and the world, and as a result, has escalated violence around the globe and weakned America in many ways, especially economically. There's war crimes as well as treason. These issues are unaccounted for.

Less than a year ago, George wins another election surrounded by highly questionable antics regarding vote tampering in Ohio, which certainly did happen. We knew in advance it was going to happen. This has also gone unaccounted for.

That doesn't cover all of the gut wrnching behavior displayed by this "president". There was the wire in his suit during the debates, his ill-advised comment, "Bring 'em on!", his G.I. Joe impersonation aboard the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln proclaiming an end to major combat operations beneath a sign that said "Mission Accomplished", his flipping off TV cameras just a week ago, his failure to hold anyone accountable (surprise, surprise) for the Plame affair after he assured the American people he would, and finally, his stating long after 9/11 that he just wasn't concerned about Osama bin Laden anyomre. Hmmm.

Upon further review, no commercial jetliner ever crashed into the Pentagon. At least two buildings of the WTC were intentionally brought down, one right before our eyes as Tom Clancy was interviewed during CNN coverage. The twin towers were also brought down by powerful explosives, as both photographic evidence of the towers falling down AND satellite images of the disaster area as well as heat sensing equipment in outer space prove. Bush resisted a full scale investigation of the crimes. Therefore, this too has gone unaccounted for. Please refer to www.letsroll911.org for your own perspective.

Simply put, Cindy, the tragedy which has befallen your family must be unbearable given that you've experienced everything I've listed above as well as having lost your son because of it. Numbers are by your side and you're doing the right thing in response to grief that must be tremendous. You have my support as well as hundreds of people I communicate with everday on the very topics. I'll pass your efforts along and please keep me posted on things.

Sincerely,
Christian

Christian,
That's a good one, you should post it on the Neocon blogs! It's fun, and you can actually get some of them to start questioning their party!
Here's one of mine from a slightly different perspective (It caused quite the stir at a couple of sites!):

Why are we in Iraq and when will we leave?
I think we are witnessing a new gold rush, substitute the American West with the Middle East and gold with oil and it all seems pretty cut and dry. The oil traders, attorneys, and corporate heads in BushCo. are going to drag this one out to the very end. Considering the fact that other reliable forms of energy already exist and are currently in use around the globe, it's obvious that they want to continue down the road of oil until we run out; look at Europe, they have been supplementing their oil use and electrical generation for quite some time. Our government and our citizens need to get on the ball. Bush will not pull out of Iraq until they have built high walls topped with razor wire around the oilfields over there. Why the heck is oil so important? Is it because oil is the only economy base that the administration understands anymore? Are they not at all prepared for a change? Do they think that the rest of the world is going to sit idly by and continue to use the oil they capture while waiting until America is ready to convert? They can make money from new energy technologies and the industries that those technologies will bring about just as easily (and seamlessly, if conversion starts before the supply of oil really begins it's decline), not to mention the fact that there are a multitude of new energy patents which are currently owned by the big oil companies (which they hide away from the rest of us, every corporation has got to have it's trade secrets).

I often wonder what it's like to be addicted to money the way that this administration is. Money is their drug, they are so addicted to the current economy and the money they grab from it that they have gone to war with the Middle East to ensure that they are controlling the global oil economy until the last drop goes through the pipelines. The desire to be in control of the final decline of oil, if done from a humanitarian angle (saving our economy and people from possible end-of era regression) could be looked at from the perspective that the end justifies the means, but when done in the manner that BushCo. has, (lying, covering up or otherwise changing facts, ignoring questions asked of it's citizens and press) it seems more along the lines of deceitful corporate money-grabbing and self interest. If they don't act soon the aforementioned patents the energy corporations hold wont mean squat. It's going to take a good amount of the remaining oil to fabricate the opening salvo of new industrial machinery and the equipment necessary to convert, being that it currently takes the usage of oil to allow today's industry to function. Considering the track record of the administration, it's unlikely that they have any such plan in mind. They are far too unwilling to listen to reason, and why should they? They are here for the quick money, the easy money that they are accustomed to and so enamored by.

If our country could either get off the current electricity grids and create one hundred percent of the power our homes consume or enact a law requiring our utility companies to make the switch then it seems to me that would cut our dependence on oil by nearly half which would allow for more time to develop new resources for transportation. It would be optimal to convert both utilities and transportation on a concurrent time frame, however there would be less shake up within the global economy if one commitment was executed prior to the other. Some companies, like Toyota have their own time frame, they have announced an additional 10 hybrid vehicles to their lineup over the next decade, seen here: http://biz.yahoo.com/usat/050803/13023716.html?.v=2. Maybe we'll all be able to buy John Deere wind generators from Home Depot in the near future! Not really soon enough, but Deere is doing something nonetheless.

skye

and for the LIGHT to shine BRIGHT on HER, so the truth will be heard.

Thousands of others from NYC and I, as a mother who has also lost an adult son, send our best wishes for success with Cindy Sherman and the throngs who join her. May they find peace at this end of this long, arduous trail.

All the best, and God speed,

Well come on all you Repuli-kkk-ans, Uncle Sam needs your help again,
He's got himself in a terrible jam, Way over yonder in the desert sand,
So put down your mouse, pick up a gun, You're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

And it's one, two, three, What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn, Next stop is the Promised Land,
And it's five, six, seven, Let's close off Jerusalem's gates,
Ain't no time to reason why, YIPPIE, we're all gonna die.

Come all you armchair 'warriors' let's move fast, Your big chance has come at last,
Gotta go out and get those "ragheads", 'cause the only good "ayrab" is the one who's dead,
And you know The Rapture can only come, When The Crusade's fought and won.

CHORUS.

Well, come on Cheney don't move slow, This war's just another damn Diebold show,
There's plenty of dirty money to be made, While Haliburton's supplying
the tools of the trade,
Just hope and pray that if they drop their bombs, They'll land on those damn Congressmen.

CHORUS

Well, come on you mothers take a stand, Send your boys and girls to The Holy Land,
Come chicken-hawk neo-cons don't hesitate, Sign up for The Glory before it's to late,
Be the first one on your block, To have YOUR bits come home in a box.

And it's one, two, three, What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn, Just blame it all on Islam,
And it's five, six, seven, Let's stir up more radical hate,
It's only the people who have to die, YIPPIE, the whole world's gonna fry.
***************************

Cindy, and all you who are standing up and raising your voices so the truth may be heard, we love you. No retreat - No surrender.
Impeach the SOB and prosecute the rest of his criminal cabal.
patrickmonk.rn.

Thanks for teaching me a new song. I'll be sure to sing it loudly, proudly and probably, a little off-key, but what the H*L*
Gretchen ;)

Cindy and all those who have lost a loved one in Iraq, I truly hope you can get to talk to Bush. Frankly, I don't think he cares about our young men and women who are fighting this illegal war.
My greatest hope that there will be LOTS of media and that it is actually broadcast.
Good Luck!!!
Sincerely,
Lynda

Bush is a criminal who has the consciousness of a tyrant. He is willing to lie, cheat, deceive and murder, and he is willing to take advice from, and give orders to, others who are willing to do the same. And this they have been willing to do day after day from the very first moment they contemplated the possibility that they could rule if they tried. Bush does not have a legitimate right to hold public office or to make executive decisions. He should be in prison along with many others. It is a travesty that he and his criminal associates are still allowed to live or work in or around the White House, or even walk free. Everything they do is a continuation of, and/or a cover up of their criminal acts, and/or the maintenance of their illegitimate unjust power.

They said they were making war on terror, but instead they made war on justice and the rule of law, which is to say, they made war on you and me and the legacy we thought we might leave to our children and grandchildren. And in this war, already they have committed unspeakable crimes.

In my travels I have learned that freedom is not something a country can give me... or something it can take away. Freedom is something I had to win for myself, alone. As long as I am willing to tell the truth, I am free... and if the moment ever comes that I am no longer willing, I will no longer be free.

I cannot say that I live in a free country unless or until I know that I am living in a country of free People. Right now, all I have to do is listen to the TV news to know that I am not. I will know I live in a free country when the TV news begins to report the truth with integrity. The people who put the news together are the People also. When enough listeners are ready to be free, those in the news room will be too.

Will you ever know THE TRUTH? There is only your willingness to tell the truth as you discover, rediscover, and know it at the deepest levels of your being. You cannot tell the truth if you are unwilling to learn something new and every time you do learn something new you have an opportunity to get closer. But knowing the truth and being willing to tell the truth are not the same thing. If you are afraid to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, you are not free. Of course no one knows the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, but we can be willing to know it, and in time we can at least learn enough to know a lie when we hear it. That's when it's time to tell as much of the truth as we know. And every act of courage makes a difference.

The choice is simple, stands to reason,
Be the truth and live in freedom,
Or accept the lies and be the treason.

SEND BUSH THE COWARD TO THE FRONT LINE IN iRAQ!!!!

You make me feel proud to be an American, Cindy Sheehan. It's a feeling that I had lost March of 2003. Thank you for giving it back to me.
I mourn your loss as well as the loss that has ripped apart the hearts of all the One Thousand, Eight Hundred and Twenty Seven families of the fallen.

Outstanding! This is the most important action in the antiwar movement in some time.

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!

Godspeed!

When the two leaders of their respective movements meet on Saturday,
the majority are with Cindy. She has a clearly stated mission that everyone understands...and she stands for the people.
Can Bush meet her or will he hide behind his security and have them removed by force? Let us see what he is made of?....I think, we all know by now.
Bring em on?

Keep up the good work. I cannot be with you tomorrow in Crawford, but I will be with you in spirit. George Bush should not be allowed to get away with all that he has done. If he is a uniter then I hope I never see a divider.
I will believe that he is sincere about how he feels about the young men and women dying in Iraq when I see those twins in fatigues and carrying an M-16 or whatever it is servicemen and women are required to carry now.
Good for you . . . you are a hero in my eyes.

Go for it Cindy and hope the reporters will be there to cover everything. Some how Bush will lie his way out of everything like he always does. We lost a son at 18 but not in a war but know how you feel as a Mother. I wish you luck. Sincerely Judy

Dear Cindy,

What you are doing is so TRULY patriotic! I was very moved by hearing your testimony before the Democratic committee because there is apparently not one Republican in Congress with a conscience. I was also touched deeply by the piece you wrote, "Where Do I Live?" on CommonDreams.org.

My husband and I were against Bush's war in Iraq from the very beginning. It is tragic beyond belief that the deaths and maiming of our soldiers continues as George Bush struts around his "ranch." His speech yesterday was despicable! I too would like an explanation of this so-called "noble cause."

For Cindy Sheehan and all the families who have lost their loved ones in this unjust, illegal war, we mourn with you. As we see the faces parade across our TV screen on PBS (one of the few sources we have seen where they at least show photos and names of the fallen) we know that George W. Bush and his entire corrupt administration MUST be held accountable.

I pray you will get answers, though I fear the bully/coward we have masquerading as President will abdicate responsibility as he always does. I do hope there is media coverage. You are entirely right, Cindy, in your questions -- "When will the rest of America finally come out of its coma? When, God forbid, the jack-booted thugs come pounding on their door some midnight?"

And yes, if his "mission" is such a "noble cause" he should send Jenna and Barbara!

Good luck -- all of you attempting to hold George W. Bush accountable.
The entire cabal needs to be impeached, starting with impeaching Bush.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Barbara, Central Florida

cindy and others at this march YOU MAKE ME PROUD AGAIN TO BE AN AMERICAN.my heart an soul will be with you all.hang the SOB AND ALL HIS CROOKS WITH HIM.god bess you all, you are speaking for alot of americans who coudnt be there.

cindy and others at this march YOU MAKE ME PROUD AGAIN TO BE AN AMERICAN.my heart an soul will be with you all.hang the SOB AND ALL HIS CROOKS WITH HIM.god bess you all, you are speaking for alot of americans who coudnt be there.

For those of us not physically with you, Cindy and others, we are definitely with you in spirit. Thank you for representing us.

Maybe there is hope for this tired world ... especially if there are people like you who continue to stand up for the truth. It has been so spiritually lifting to read these comments of support. These folks are who I consider true patriots ... takes more than a sticker on your vehicle and two large American flags waving. It takes courage, honesty, and the will to adhere and actually practice the ideals we so easily preach ... freedom, democracy, and moral leadership.

Cindy, I am an 80 year old veteran of WWII, and I have been witness to every kind of good and evil politician in America since then. But I have never seen the likes of George Bush and his gang. They had cooked up this invasion of oil-rich Iraq even before 9/11, and used those attacks to fulfill their dreams. Bush lied to the American people, to Congress, and to the UN. He was too much a coward to fight when he had a chance. But while we have lost over 1800 of our sons and daughters, with many thousands more terribly maimed for life, while he goads the enemy to "bring it on", he has not sent his own daughters to fight and die for this "noble" cause. Impeachment is too good for him and his cronies. The cronies who bought his way into the White House with money earned by this war, such as Haliburton and the other defense contractors, and the multinational oil companies are rolling in their record-breaking profits. God help our nation!

Cindy, I weep for your loss, and pray for you to have strength to stand against the obvious hurdles that will intend to block your course Saturday at Crawford. God speed! Jerry France

Jerry, your astute summation echoes my thoughts and sentiments exactly. I am only in my fifties, but this is the worst, most destructive president I have ever seen. Nixon and his administration look like a prize compared to the Bush administration. George W. Bush has truly weakened and imperiled our nation...I fear irrevocably.

You are right: Impeachment, while certainly called for (and we MUST call for and demand it), is too good for Bush. Someone needs to look into how all this war money (OUR money) is being laundered and into whose trust funds and overseas accounts it is going. It is certainly not going to "support our troops" or "take care of our veterans"; nor is it being spent "fighting terror" or "spreading democracy" or "helping the good people of Iraq." No, it is being stolen from us and also used as just another tool to manipulate the gullible. We should insist that the thieves be held fully accountable for their crimes against America, against Iraq, and against humanity...starting with Bush and Cheney.

Jerry, I thank you for your past and continuing service to our country. My father, who died in the mid-sixties of a service-connected disability, was a WWII and Korean War veteran. He must really be turning over in his grave at Arlington over the travesties and tragedies that Bush the Lesser has dishonestly wrought in all our names.

Cindy, I thank you and EVERYONE who is fighting so hard for our country now: that's all of us who are forcefully speaking out in our homes, to our friends, through the Internet, and with our physical and financial presence when we can. The song going through my head these days is this:

Well it's one, two, three, what are we fightin' for?
Just ask me, 'cause I DO give a damn!
Next stop: Impeach that man!

My dad was a WWII veteran. He was a pilot in the South Pacific, a black cat. Three admirals tried to encourage him to stay in the service once the war was over but he said no. He was going home. That's what war is. It's always a desire and a dream to go home. It's always prayers from everyone back home that you'll make it. My dad has Alzheimers. If there is anything good about that disease (and there isn't) it's that he doesn't know what is happening to the country he fought for.
This plague has to be hurting the oldest generation the most. They gave so much to make this country a strong healthy nation and look where we are. It makes me sick.

Mohandes Ghandi took on getting the British out of India. It took 37 years, but he united the nation and accomplished his goal. Cindy, you and everyone going with you to Crawford are like Ghandi. You are standing for truth and justice. The fight can be long, but it is a worthy one. Be peaceful, powerful and determined, as Ghandi was. Hold the Bush administration accountable, and be a stand that they do what you and every patriotic American is asking - LEAVE IRAQ NOW. No conditions, no more lies, no more wars and deaths for oil. I am moved by who you are, and what you are up to.

It is my belief that Bush and his people will be held accountable before his second term is up. The American people must stand together and accept nothing less than that they be brought to justice. Their actions are truly treasonous and inexcusable.

Bravo!

HOW ABOUT CINDY SHEEHAN FOR PREZ?

KICK THE NOECON OILIGARCHY OUT.

IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH.

Cindy Sheehan is our Nelson Mandela
Bushcho is the apartheid government unleashed on American citizens

Cindy Sheehan is our Mahatma Ghandhi
Bushco is the corrupt Brit regime that thought it had India under its thumb

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the Children of God"
Matthew 5:9

Quotes from Mahatma Gandhi :

"We must become the change we want to see."

"An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind."

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS."

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."

"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?"

"First, they ignore you. Then they laugh at you.
Then they fight you. Then you win."

"When people speak to you about a preventive war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have come to hate war. War settles nothing."
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity."
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Please choose the way of peace. ... In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause."
-Mother Teresa
Letter to U.S. President George Bush , January 1991

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
-Thomas Jefferson

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."
-George W. Bush

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."
-George W. Bush

Are you quoting George "W" Bu$h or George Orwell?

George W Bush is really Alfred E Newman in disguise.

If you put the Dwight D. Eisenhower quotes on a tee shirt I will buy them and wear them proudly.

On this day of the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima it is also noteworthy to see what Eisenhower had to say about the bombing. In a 1963 interview with Newsweek magazine, he said:
"The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn't necessary to hit them with that awful thing."

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
-Thomas Jefferson

Let Liberty prevail, so that this administration does not make it to their final goal to fear the whole world including its people. Down with their idea of the police state! Wanting us to walk on the line, that they dictate or else their police in black suits will be able to shoot at will. Evil, Schoolyard bullies is what they remind me of, but trying to push around the whole world of people instead of just the few in the school yard. I am surprised that there are not more psychologists speaking out against this regime. They clearly have ailments.

In my above post i said they clearly have ailments. I meant Bush and his gang, not the psychologists. Just to Clarify. You go Cindy girl, many are with you please do not give up....

DEAR CINDY,
I THINK, YOU, ARE ABSOULUTELY INCREDIBLE! I HAVE BEEN SO TOTALLY CONSUMED WITH THE HOPE THAT SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, CAN & WILL HOLD THIS ENTIRE ADMINSTRATION ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS SINCELESS LOSS OF HUMAN LIFE! NOT ONLY MORALLY, BUT CRIMINAL CHARGES. BUSH HAS BEEN SELF-INDULGED IN THIS BULLSHIT RHETORIC HE SPEWS OUT OVER, & OVER, HOW WERE SPREADING FREEDOM...BLAHH...BLAHH...BLAHH... PLEASE, HE'S SPREADING HIS WALLET! PLAIN & SIMPLE! WHEN DID FREEDOM SPREADING BECOME OUR REASONING FOR THIS WAR? ANOTHER LIE TO TOTALLY OVERSHADOW 9/11? SINCE BUSH,AND ALL HIS GOOD OLE'FAT OIL RICH SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY& FRIENDS & HIS MORALLY FIBERED, UPSTANDING RELIGIOUS CRONIES TOOK THIS HORRIFIC CRIME AND TURNED IT IN TO MORE MONEY...MORE OIL...AND SURELY, MORE DEATHS.
I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK! GIVE 'EM HELL... THAT'S WHERE THEY BELONG!

SPRINGFIELD, OHIO

As the mother of an Ohio U.S. Army Sgt., just 20 years old who has served 2 tours of duty in Iraq, I lend my wholehearted support to Cindy Sheehan and the others who will join her in confronting our deceitful, insincere, manipulative President on Saturday. I am blessed that my son has returned both times but this war has changed him. I am incensed that his life has been in jeopardy because of one man's tunnel vision and the lies he used to create the debacle we are now in. I mourn for those families who have lost their precious treasures and cannot fathom the grief they endure knowing this whole charade was contrived and planned. Give him Hell, Cindy, and let him get a taste of where he's going!

There are a lot of people here who refuse to drink the kool-aid, and we're all with you! Don't be satisfied with spin or doublespeak. Let him know he's not fooling anybody anymore, and if he can't speak the truth, then it's time for him to step aside, and we will find someone who can.

Margaret Mead said: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has"

Good luck!

If anybody understood people it was Margaret Mead.

BRING IT ON my dear friend Cindy & I know you will,
As you continue to amaze & inspire me, I send you all my support, love & prayers. Casey's picture is in my bible under my pillow & and the other one is next to yours, crosses, another bible & a candle that will burn until you get the answers that you so rightfully deserve. Although, every word that comes out of that animal's mouth continually proves his delusional, uneducated, moronic, disconnected, greed & power hungry, lying pathetic excuse for a human being, will most likely be just more B.S., I wish you all the luck in the world as the positive force that is with you will prevail.
Bulshit had no idea (what a surprise) when he said "Bring it on." You and everyone else will surely "Bring it on" to the point that he won't know what hit him. I hope you get it on film, so we can see him babble, skirm, and dodge every single question as you all continue to BRING IT ON.
My blood continues to boil that he could say such a thing & take the longest vacation in presidential history when we had the most deadly few days since the war began, and WE ARE AT WAR with more warnings of attacks on our land continue. But it is a "working" vacation as he is hosting the head of Columbia...."It's hard work" figuring out how to get the heroine from Afghanistan's booming poppy biz to the U.S. & Columbia. Nothing our current death squads can't handle.
I KNOW YOU WILL BRING IT ON!!! GOD BLESS YOU, ALL WHO ARE INVOLVED AND BE SAFE. You are dealing with a very sick, delusional, mass-murdering tyranical dictator.
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME, IMMEDIATELY....IT IS FAR OVERDUE!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU ALL HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE MAJORITY!!!
Sending love & big warm hugs of support to all the true Americans!!!

A Beautiful Post. I hope this will wake up the part of America that choose to stay blinded by the lies. I am so happy to know that people are on the move trying to bring an end to this administrations madness. Cindy is A True Hero. This is what
True America is all about. Caring, Peaceloving, Compassionate, People from all walks of life. Horray!!!!! to my idol and hero!! Cindy!! You go Girl......... All my thoughts are with you!

Give Bush "Some Hell!" Cindy, Because every hair on his head is
already numbered! And what you don't give him the "Devil" will see to the rest! Take care and God Bless You.

It is 4AM on the east coast and I have awakened early this Saturday unable to rest while our country continues to fall further and further under the spell of a tyrant.

Cindy, I have been reading the comments and felt compelled to add one of my own. Back on Friday June 17th I happened to see John Conyers Downing Street Memo hearings replayed on C-SPAN. You, Joe Wilson, Ray McGovern and John Bonifaz, Esquire led me to this web site which I have followed daily ever since.

You all are amazing patriots. Each of you has taken an element of the administration's failures and made compelling arguments in favor of the truth.

Today will present the mainstream media with its most important opportunity to initiate its involvement in the PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH!

Bush and his entire administration currently occupy (is that not an ironic term) the administrative branch of our federal government. I refuse to concede that Bush holds office as the "legitimately elected" President of the United States. If one does concede that his ascension to the Presidency has legitimacy, then one also must concede that his "election" carries with it a fiduciary duty, a trusteeship, to carry out his responsibilities of his office in the interests of the people of the United States.

As a fiduciary (trustee) one is responsible to use the resources of the principle in the principle's best interests. Any failure to do so can and should result in the fiduciary being brought before authorities, a Court, to explain how the fiduciary's conduct has been in the best interests of the principle.

You, today, along with the patriots going to Crawford with you, are asking the fiduciary, President Bush, to explain how his conduct furthers the best interests of the principles, in this case, the American people (ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE)!

Bush's refusal to answer will speak volumes abour his failure to fulfill his fiduciary duty to the American people. In the unlikely event that he truthfully answers your questions, he will be forced to relinquish his trusteeship of the country.

I hesitate to liken this to a chess match, for this is no game, but it appears that the pawns have the King check-mated.

God bless you and the others travelling to Crawford for the friendly chat with our "TRUSTEE"!

Sincerely,
Richard J. Schaedler, Esquire
