Cindy Sheehan to protest against Blue Angels air show in Maine

BRUNSWICK, Maine The woman leading protests against President Bush's conduct of the Iraq war will protest a Blue Angels air show in Brunswick, Maine, next month.

Bruce Gagnon (GAHNG'-yuhn) of Maine Veterans for Peace says Cindy Sheehan will be the featured guest at a protest outside the Brunswick Naval Air Station on September tenth.

Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq, camped outside the president's Central Texas ranch a month ago to demand a meeting with him. The Vacaville, California, woman hasn't gotten an audience, but she attracted a lot of support. She's promised to carry her protest to Washington and beyond after Bush goes back to work.

Bush has said he sympathizes with Sheehan's loss, but thinks it would dishonor the soldiers who gave their lives in Iraq to pull out before the job is done.

I sure hope she isnt protesting the Blue Angels. How can anybody deny the awesome beauty of such engineering. Airshows are a good fun american past time. Of course I must admitt that I am biased since I am a big aviation enthusiast. Sure there are recruiters at airshows, but you dont have to talk to them. Just go to see the aircraft and the skilled aviators that fly them.

I have seen them, and it is one of the best shows ever...However, I am sure there are better uses of the fuel and talent. People are suffering in four states...The show is just to encourage enlistment, anyway, and we do not want to send any more of our children to George's illegal war in Iraq.

Come on now... you could probably say "that's Bushes evil way of supporting the war" for everything from Trix Cereal to the brown shoelaces on my shoes. Dont go bashing aviation. That's hitting below the belt.
