Sheehan Encourages Desertion Yet Again

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

 

The professional anti-American, Cindy Sheehan, demonstrates her highly paid ability to grieve on cue on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Thursday, May 4, 2006.

Peace Mom pleads for Canada to provide sanctuary for soldiers

American anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan wants the Canadian government to grant sanctuary to U.S. army deserters.

"I’m just here begging the people of Canada to force your government – because your government works for you, …because your government does not work for war profiteers – to allow our soldiers to have sanctuary up here," she said.

The so-called "Peace Mom" made headlines last year when she staged a month-long demonstration outside U.S. President George W. Bush’s Texas ranch to protest the American occupation of Iraq.

Sheehan asked the federal government at a press conference in Ottawa Thursday to create a provision allowing military deserters to flee to Canada so they don’t need to apply for refugee status on an individual basis.

Sheehan’s 24-year-old son was killed five days after he began serving in Iraq in 2004.

Before her son left, he told Sheehan he disagreed with the war and with the president’s decision to send troops.

"I told him, ‘I’ll do anything. I’ll take you to Canada. Let’s go to Canada, or if you don’t want to go to Canada, then I’ll run you over with my car and break your legs,’" she said.

Sheehan said the U.S. government lied to her son and other soldiers by telling them they wouldn’t be forced to participate in war if they signed up…

As we have noted numerous times before, Cindy Sheehan is breaking several US laws when she encourages military desertion:

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 67

§ 1381. Enticing desertion and harboring deserters

Whoever entices or procures, or attempts or endeavors to entice or procure any person in the Armed Forces of the United States, or who has been recruited for service therein, to desert therefrom, or aids any such person in deserting or in attempting to desert from such service; or

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115

§ 2387. Activities affecting armed forces generally

(a)
Whoever, with intent to interfere with, impair, or influence the loyalty, morale, or discipline of the military or naval forces of the United States:

(1) advises, counsels, urges, or in any manner causes or attempts to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty by any member of the military or naval forces of the United States; or

(2) distributes or attempts to distribute any written or printed matter which advises, counsels, or urges insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty by any member of the military or naval forces of the United States—

(b) If two or more persons conspire to violate subsection (a) of this section and one or more such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each of the parties to such conspiracy shall be punished as provided in said subsection (a).

(c) Whoever harbors or conceals any person who he knows, or has reasonable grounds to believe or suspect, has committed, or is about to commit, an offense under this section, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

And, as we have also noted, Mother Sheehan is cravenly lying about her son’s attitude about the war in Iraq. She is on videotape saying he wanted to go to Iraq and fight for the United States:

Watch The Video

The story is reiterated in this CBS-5.com article:

Bay Area Soldier Dies in Iraq

One of the most recent U.S. casualties in the war in Iraq was a 24-year-old Bay Area man.

Army Specialist Casey Sheehan of Vacaville died over the weekend when the vehicle he was riding in was attacked in Baghdad. He had been in the country less than two weeks.

"He just wanted to go over to fight for his country, and serve his country," said Sheehan’s mother Cindy Sheehan

Sister Carly Sheehan said… "He would stay up at night worrying about the world. From the time he was little, my mom would find him awake at night. He couldn’t sleep because he was too worried about the world.

He just wanted to take care of the world, and he gave his life for it."

How disgusting that she would lie about her own heroic son to advance her traitorous, America-hating agenda.

But that’s what she’s paid to do.
