This mother who is protesting outside of Bush’s ranch is upset over the death of her son in Iraq. That is understandable, but her comments are unforgivable.
“I want to ask the president, why did he kill my son?” Sheehan told reporters. “He said my son died in a noble cause, and I want to ask him what that noble cause is.”
Her son signed up for the military. When sent off to a warzone, there is a chance you can die. Every soldier anywhere in the world and their families know there is a chance they can die. This mother needs to apologize for Bush for saying that he “…killed her son”.
He did NOT kill her son. Islamo-Facists killed him. Get it straight lady!
And she also wants to know what the noble cause is? Is she vacationing on the moon!? The U.S. has freed an entire people, and entire country from the rule of a tyrannical madman! Millions of lives have been saved and democracy is gaining a hold in the middle east. Is there not a more noble cause than freeing people?
The message also urges Bush to send his twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara, to Iraq “if the cause is so noble.”
I’ve heard this so many times from people like Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore in Fahrenheit 911… The left doesn’t seem to understand that the military is a volunteer force, the parents DO NOT SEND THEIR CHILDREN! THE CHILDREN HAVE TO VOLUNTEER TO GO!!! This above statement angers me to no end.
If Jenna and Barbara Bush WANT to serve the country and WANT to join the military, they can! But they don’t. They chose to go to college and go into the fields they chose for themselves.
“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.”
The leftists say this war is so bad and we need to leave immediately, then if we did, the Iraqi government could collapse and the new rulers, probably the Bathist party, would go back to a Saddamish regime and the left would still blame the right for not staying longer and keeping human rights violations from happening.
Basically the U.S. saved the Iraqis from one of the largest human rights violator of our time, Saddam Hussein.
But we cannot just pick up and leave, things need to be done to insure extremists like Saddam do not take over again. We have to train their military and police, we have to build their infrastructure and communications systems. It’s not over until they can maintain peace on their own. And it’s a good chance, while we are there, to kill as many Islamo-Facists as possible.
So to summarize my opinion on this woman, Cindy Sheehan.
It is not Bush’s fault your son is dead, it is the fault of the Islamo-Facists.
If you want to blame anyone, blame either them or your son for signing up for the military.
I’m sure your son was a good person and he DID die for a noble cause. Now get over it.
