Sheehan Is Irate At The Hardships In Iraq

Our sainted mother Cindy continues her jihad against America with a letter almost certainly made up out of whole cloth. Cindy and the rest of the left have made a long history of concocting these kind of stories.

Of course Cindy could readily prove this is authentic by providing the name of the author and the details about her purported soldier son. But that will probably never happen. Anyway, why should the author hide her light under a bushel, especially when she is so adamant about these outrageous conditions?

But never mind all that. It makes for good hate America agit-prop grist for Howard Dean’s paid stooge mill at the Daily Kos:

Cindy Sheehan received the key to the city of Cambridge yesterday afternoon from the vice mayor, Majorie Decker.

A Message from Cannon Fodder in Iraq

This is from a friend of mine whose son is in the Army, stationed in Baghdad. And the Peace Community is accused of not supporting our troops???

This is fucking barbaric and we are letting this stuff continue in our names. Excuse my launguage, but my friend almost became a Gold Star Mom on the 27th…. but for the grace of god or whatever, she didn’t.

Our government is creating Gold Star Moms at a very rapid clip and the Iraqi people that they are klling or turning into people who have to fight to survive is obscene.

What are we willing to do to stop the inhumanity and war crimes?

Cindy

*WARNING* FYI…..This is pretty graphic…..

I was thrilled yesterday to wake to an email from my son. The last correspondence I had from him was the email on Dec. 26. Then 2 guys in his battalion were killed and one wounded on the 27th (the wounded soldier has since passed away from his injuries). All communications were shut down until notification of their deaths by the Army to their families….but still no word from my son. I knew that he would contact us as soon as he could…but that didn’t make the waiting any easier. He emailed yesterday to reassure me that he was "fine"….which of course I was glad to hear. Then he called me later in the day…..

It was wonderful to hear his voice….be able to talk to him. I asked him about the incident that ended those 3 guys lives…..ages 26, 23, and 20. He said he hadn’t planned on telling me about it, but then knew that I already knew about it…aware that I had received the email from the military explaining why we may not be hearing from our soldiers. I asked him if he knew what happened….he hesitantly told me….."Yes"…..he was there when it happened! That….I wasn’t prepared for. He wanted to spare me the details….but my son and I can and do talk very frankly about everything…..I knew he needed to talk to someone about it….so I told him not to hold anything back. I told him I already know he is in harms way, I know there are horrible things going on there….things I can’t even imagine…..but I wanted to know….and I wanted him to be able to talk about it with me.

This is our war……….

Why not take a high school class out on the edge of the expressway and have them run back and forth….who gets hit does…who’s lucky enough not to….well is just lucky.

It was horrifying knowing he witnessed it, knowing he was filled with fear and images that will stay with him forever.

I asked him about the Iraqis…..the Iraqi soldiers he was with. "Their crazy" was his reply. He said that morning a dog was running down the street and an Iraqi man beat it to death with a shovel then threw it on the side of the road. He said, "That’s normal here."

I immediately knew when I started talking to him that he had a cold…..he said, "Yeah, I do, but I’m ok." I asked if he was eating good….what did they have for them to eat?….American food….Iraqi food? He said they get ONE meal a day. A "meal" that is either a 6 inch cold pizza, or well, he had 5 cold chicken wings one day, oh and a hotdog one day….well a lone hotdog….no bun. One meal a day!!! Prisoners in this country are required to receive 3 full meals a day in prison or it’s infringing on their rights??!!! He said they have 2 microwave ovens that are broken and a toaster oven that doesn’t work well….the government is apparently spoiling them! Our sons and daughters are in the U.S. military…..fighting for our country…..have committed no crimes and this is what they feed them??? It’s like the Twilight Zone or some parallel universe…..a bad dream that upon waking makes no real sense….

He took his first shower yesterday…..his first since Dec. 20. That was good he said.

The Army is wondering why no one wants to join??? Why no one wants to go back??? Are the American people really that dense to think that we are doing the right thing…..doing good? The government wants to spin this into that they’re protecting us from terrorists…..payback for 9/11. Osama Bin Ladin is no where near Iraq! So is anyone on his trail?

I know they’re in harms way…..thousands of miles away from home and family but can they for God’s sake treat them better than a prisoner….than an animal? You mistreat an animal in this country and all kinds of organizations are on your back…..you go to jail. Our government is mistreating our soldiers and we stand back and watch……well not really because we don’t see THIS on the news. We only see what they want us to see.

Most of the guys that joined were promised to be able to go to college….on the government…and could start even while in the military. my son was included in this group. He was met with….you don’t have time for college you can go when you get out. But….our prisoners are receiving college degrees while serving their sentences! Is it me or is it just backwards?? Micah is already skinny as a rail…..how do they expect a 20 yr old boy to live on what they are feeding them? Guess it doesn’t matter much….why waste food on people you make walk thru mine fields? Doesn’t this sound a little like the Holocaust?

So…..my son says….he’s "ok". I’m sorry to vent but THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!

PLEASE!!!!!! Email, write, call your congressmen, state representatives….etc. Go to some of the websites I have listed below….read the stories of the people….one after another….. I will email the links again to find your state officials. EDUCATE YOURSELF!!

I don’t want to wait over the next year for a knock at my door….and I don’t want one more mother, wife, family member to either. These Iraqi people apparently have no regard for life…..theirs, their women and children, ours, even animals. WHY ARE WE THERE??

And I voted for Bush…..TWICE! You don’t see the Bush twins in Iraq…..no manicures or shopping sprees.

Don’t want to ruin your day…..just want to get you thinking…..and MAD!!!

Send what you can to our troops….they definitely need it…apparently especially FOOD!!!

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone and everyone you can! I feel helpless…..I want to jump on a plane like that 16 yr old from Florida and grab my son and bring him home…..

I guess the story about the dogs is possible. Moslems are notorious for killing dogs — and infidels.

But does anyone believe the US troops in Iraq are only getting one meal a day? And nobody else would have complained to their families or to the press?

Sorry, Cindy, but this bogeyman was put to bed a long time ago. Your handlers have given you talking points from April 2003.

Moreover, it is hilarious to see the lunatics on the left griping about how prisoners in the US are treated better than our soldiers. When have they ever been concerned about the standard of living for the military? And when have they not valued those in prison over our soldiers?

Also, this anonymous author’s rant about her son not getting to go to college for free as soon as he signed up with the army sounds like pure Cindy to me. Mother Sheehan harps on the subject constantly.

However, the Hate America crowd is confused about the purpose of the military. Its first priority is not to provide an education, but to protect our nation. The left cannot comprehend that concept. Or rather, they seek to change the military’s purpose to suit their agenda. Cindy has no problem with Moslem "freedom fighters" hunting us down like dogs.

And of course this anonymous woman (who almost certainly does not exist) says she voted for Bush — twice. This claim is long since required boilerplate for any screed that denounces Bush. It’s supposed to really make it resonate. Never mind that on odd numbered days the Dems claim nobody voted for Bush — ever.

By the way, despite Cindy’s agit-prop, recruitment is higher than ever. Cindy should know that better than most, since her son Casey signed up — twice.

(Thanks to ever-watchful reader, JohnX, for the alert.)
