Cindy: Katrina Shows Casey Died For Nothing

What a surprise, huh? I’m beginning to suspect everythingshows Casey died for nothing — to his mentally unbalanced mother.

Anyway, here is some more darkness brought to us by this self-appointed moral compass, this time via the crackpot conspiracy mongers at BuzzFlash. (Wellstone was murdered, man!):

Iraq and Katrina: Failed Bookends of a Bush Presidency

See You in DC on the 24th

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

What Bush’s Katrina shows once again is that my son died for nothing. If you listen to Bush –- and fewer and fewer are, thank goodness — we are in Iraq in part due to 9/11. All our president has been talking about has been protecting this country since 9/11. That’s why people voted for him in the last election. Katrina shows it’s all as sham, a fraud, a disaster as large as Katrina itself.

Hundreds of billions of dollars and tens of thousands of innocent lives wasted. What have we achieved? Nothing. Casey died for nothing and Bush says others have to die for those that have died already.

Enough, George! What is disgusting is not, as the first lady says, criticism of you, but rather the crimes you’ve committed against this country and our sons and daughters. Stop hiding behind your twisted idea of God and stop destroying this country.

This week I arrive in Washington, DC to begin my Vigil at the White House — just like I did in Texas. But this time I’ll be joined by Katrina victims as well. In your America, we are all victims. The failed bookends of your Presidency are Iraq and Katrina.

It is time for all of us to stand up and be counted: to show the media, Congress, and this inept, corrupt, and criminal administration that we mean business. It is time to get off of our collective behinds to show the people who are running our country into oblivion that we will stand for it no longer. We want our country back and we want our nation’s young people back home, safe and sound, on our shores to help protect America. That it is time for a change in our country’s "leadership." That we will never go away until our dreams are reality.

We have so-called leaders in our country who are waiting for the correct "politically expedient" time to speak up and out against the occupation of Iraq. It is no sweat for our politicos to wait for the right time, because not one of them has a child in harm’s way. I don’t care if the politician is a Democrat or a Republican, this is not about politics. Being a strong leader to guide our country out of the quagmire and mistake of Iraq will require people of courage and determination to stand up and say: "I don’t care if I win the next election, people are dying in Iraq everyday and families are being decimated." We as the 62% of Americans who want our troops to begin coming home will follow such a leader down the difficult, but oh so rewarding, path of peace with justice.

It is no longer time for the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. It never has been the time for that. Our "now" is so fiercely urgent. Like my daughter, Carly, wrote in the last verse of her A Nation Rocked to Sleeppoem:

Have you ever heard the sound of a Nation Being Rocked to Sleep?
Our leaders want to keep us numb so the pain won’t be too deep,
But if we the people allow them to continue, another mother will weep,
Have you heard the sound of a Nation Being Rocked to Sleep?

Wake up: See you in DC on the 24th.

The slogan of the Nazi party, which eventually overthrew the "criminals" (akaelected officials) of the Weimar Republic was "Wake up" (erwache):

I can’t help but note Cindy claims surrendering to the terrorists in Iraq would be an unpopular decision. But at the same time al-Sheehan claims 62% of the citizenry wants us to pull out.

Also, as Cindy herself has reported, her daughter Carly has a history of drug problems. But even Carly appears to have stopped supporting her mother’s lunatic jihad. Just as have the rest of Mother Sheehan’s family and friends.

You would think someone in her family would care enough to do an intervention. But probably she won’t stop until the Secret Service have to get involved.
