Sheehan's a hero
Letter: Sheehan's a hero
Press and Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY)
Cindy Sheehan is my hero. She has suffered a great loss and has found the strength to not only get on with her life, but also ignite this country and take the antiwar movement out of the back seat.
The troops in Iraq do not need yellow ribbons; rather, they need us to take an active interest. We need to question the politicians when the rhetoric doesn't match the reality of the death and destruction we continually see on the news.
How can Bush and Cheney say this war is making the United States and the Middle East safer, when Iraq has become a training ground for terrorists? There needs to be an investigation into the Downing Street memo. It may be old history, but now that we all know there were no weapons of mass destruction, and no tie between bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, it is important to know what Bush was thinking.
We got into this war under false pretenses. Bush's ideology of spreading democracy at gunpoint just isn't working. If Iraq did not have oil, do you think we would be there? Write your congressmen and senators; push for answers. Do it for the troops.
