Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan

Well at least Cindy Sheehan finally recognized the truth that even a war can be used as a political tool.

There is a cultural war in America between Christians and Atheists. This war is being fought on the battlefield of politics. The battles are in the voting booth. The prize in the cultural war is the hearts, minds and souls of the children. The Atheistic liberal news media greatly influences both domestic and foreign policy by constantly reporting only bad news about Christians, conservatives and Republicans and only good news about atheists, liberals and democrats. The agenda of the Atheistic liberal news media is to promote extreme environmentalism, socialism, feminism, pornography, abortion, homosexuality and the Atheistic Lifestyle by having democrats in control of government.

Democrats supported the Iraq War until they saw it could be used a political tool to gain control of the government. That is why there should be news media censorship during a war. Censorship allowed America to win WW II. Since then, the deaths have been unacceptable because there was not a real commitment to win, and doing whatever it takes to win.

I would like see Cindy Sheehan devote her time to making sure America never enters into another war except that there be a full Declaration of War as defined by the Constitution.

The death of any soldier that occurs without the total commitment to win by those who sent them into battle is a worthless death. Better to surrender to the enemy when attacked, then to enter into battle without a total commitment to win.

"Good Riddance Attention Whore"

I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called "Face" of the American anti-war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such "liberal blogs" as the Democratic Underground. Being called an "attention whore" and being told "good riddance" are some of the more milder rebukes.

CindySheehan's diary :: ::

I have come to some heartbreaking conclusions this Memorial Day Morning. These are not spur of the moment reflections, but things I have been meditating on for about a year now. The conclusions that I have slowly and very reluctantly come to are very heartbreaking to me.

The first conclusion is that I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party. Of course, I was slandered and libeled by the right as a "tool" of the Democratic Party. This label was to marginalize me and my message. How could a woman have an original thought, or be working outside of our "two-party" system?

However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the "left" started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used. I guess no one paid attention to me when I said that the issue of peace and people dying for no reason is not a matter of "right or left", but "right and wrong."

I am deemed a radical because I believe that partisan politics should be left to the wayside when hundreds of thousands of people are dying for a war based on lies that is supported by Democrats and Republican alike. It amazes me that people who are sharp on the issues and can zero in like a laser beam on lies, misrepresentations, and political expediency when it comes to one party refuse to recognize it in their own party. Blind party loyalty is dangerous whatever side it occurs on. People of the world look on us Americans as jokes because we allow our political leaders so much murderous latitude and if we don't find alternatives to this corrupt "two" party system our Representative Republic will die and be replaced with what we are rapidly descending into with nary a check or balance: a fascist corporate wasteland. I am demonized because I don't see party affiliation or nationality when I look at a person, I see that person's heart. If someone looks, dresses, acts, talks and votes like a Republican, then why do they deserve support just because he/she calls him/herself a Democrat?

I have also reached the conclusion that if I am doing what I am doing because I am an "attention whore" then I really need to be committed. I have invested everything I have into trying to bring peace with justice to a country that wants neither. If an individual wants both, then normally he/she is not willing to do more than walk in a protest march or sit behind his/her computer criticizing others. I have spent every available cent I got from the money a "grateful" country gave me when they killed my son and every penny that I have received in speaking or book fees since then. I have sacrificed a 29 year marriage and have traveled for extended periods of time away from Casey's brother and sisters and my health has suffered and my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings. I have been called every despicable name that small minds can think of and have had my life threatened many times.

The most devastating conclusion that I reached this morning, however, was that Casey did indeed die for nothing. His precious lifeblood drained out in a country far away from his family who loves him, killed by his own country which is beholden to and run by a war machine that even controls what we think. I have tried every since he died to make his sacrifice meaningful. Casey died for a country which cares more about who will be the next American Idol than how many people will be killed in the next few months while Democrats and Republicans play politics with human lives. It is so painful to me to know that I bought into this system for so many years and Casey paid the price for that allegiance. I failed my boy and that hurts the most.

I have also tried to work within a peace movement that often puts personal egos above peace and human life. This group won't work with that group; he won't attend an event if she is going to be there; and why does Cindy Sheehan get all the attention anyway? It is hard to work for peace when the very movement that is named after it has so many divisions.

Our brave young men and women in Iraq have been abandoned there indefinitely by their cowardly leaders who move them around like pawns on a chessboard of destruction and the people of Iraq have been doomed to death and fates worse than death by people worried more about elections than people. However, in five, ten, or fifteen years, our troops will come limping home in another abject defeat and ten or twenty years from then, our children's children will be seeing their loved ones die for no reason, because their grandparents also bought into this corrupt system. George Bush will never be impeached because if the Democrats dig too deeply, they may unearth a few skeletons in their own graves and the system will perpetuate itself in perpetuity.

I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost. I will try to maintain and nurture some very positive relationships that I have found in the journey that I was forced into when Casey died and try to repair some of the ones that have fallen apart since I began this single-minded crusade to try and change a paradigm that is now, I am afraid, carved in immovable, unbendable and rigidly mendacious marble.

Camp Casey has served its purpose. It's for sale. Anyone want to buy five beautiful acres in Crawford , Texas ? I will consider any reasonable offer. I hear George Bush will be moving out soon, too...which makes the property even more valuable.

This is my resignation letter as the "face" of the American anti-war movement. This is not my "Checkers" moment, because I will never give up trying to help people in the world who are harmed by the empire of the good old US of A, but I am finished working in, or outside of this system. This system forcefully resists being helped and eats up the people who try to help it. I am getting out before it totally consumes me or anymore people that I love and the rest of my resources.

Good-bye America are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can't make you be that country unless you want it.

It's up to you now.

Failure - WMD Blame Game

Failure - WMD Blame Game

George Tenet is not turning out to be what the news media wants. The news media wanted George Tenet to admit that he and the Bush Administration deceived the news media and the American public with deliberate lies about what was going on in Iraq. George Tenet simply states he did the best he could do and the Bush Administration did the best they could do based on the available information.

The news media wants to blame Tenet and Bush because they hate Christians, Conservatives and Republicans and want to use the Iraq War to get democrats back in control of the government. They also want to blame Tenet and Bush to cover up the failure of the news media. The failure of the news media was not in the Bush Administration, but rather in the Clinton Administration. The concept of WMDs began in the Clinton Administration and everyone accepted that fact as long as the WMDs were being used to maintain sanctions on Iraq. The news media never questioned the accuracy of the Clinton Administration statements because the news media has a bias that favors democrats. When the concept of WMDs was used as a bases to attack Iraq, it was not questioned but rather accepted by almost everyone. It was only after WMDs were not found did the blame game begin.

This whole thing is embarrassing to the news media because it disproves the concept of the news media being an effective investigative organization and proves the news media is biased.

The news media needs to get off Bush's back, and get behind Bush in winning the War on Terrorism. Apologizing to the American people would be appropriate, but I doubt that is going to occur.

Jim Lehrer and the PBS News Hour

Jim Lehrer and the PBS News Hour

Last night in an interview with George Tenent I heard Jim Lehrer make the statement that Iraq was a terrible war.

What is written here is a criticism of Jim Lehrer, but in comparison to other journalists, Jim Lehrer is excellent. The ABC, NBC and CBS journalists are a part of the Atheistic Liberal News Media that are a part of the Cultural War in America.

My first question is. Does Jim Lehrer as a reporter have a right to have or express such an opinion?. Shouldn't reporters be reporters of the facts?. I believe any facts reported by a biased reporter will be only facts that support the bias thus not the whole truth.

My second question is. A terrible war relative to what? The Iraq War is going better than the Vietnam War. The Iraq War is going much better than WW II (so far we have not had to do a Dresden fire storm bombing of any Iraqi city or use any nuclear weapons).

The implication of all of Jim Lehrer's questions is that America should never have got into the Iraq War.

My first question is. Have you ever heard of the old saying, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"? Saddam and Al Quida may not have been kissing buddies, but they had a common goal and that was to destroy Israel and America. There may be a lot of differences between Arabs, but they unite when they have a common enemy. So yes, Iraq was an enemy.

My second question is. What is the center of the Middle East. Geographically, religiously and politically the center of the Middle East is Bagdad. Bagdad is where all three sects (Sunni, Shiites and Kurds) come together. You solve the problem in Iraq and you solve the problem in the Middle East. If you don't solve the Iraq problem, the next attack on America is assured.

A specific statement by Jim Lehrer was that by military action against Iraq, Al Quida had been strengthened. I do not see that. Al Quida still exists, but the terrorist attacks have been eliminated. Several terrorists attacks have been attempted, but the tight knit Al Quida network has been crippled. Also, Al Quida has become an embarrassment to the leaders of the Islamic religion. There have been several meetings where it is obvious that the extreme positions are being rejected. Further and further the Islamic extremists are being pushed into Iran, the final sanctuary. With Iran being isolated by the Islamic religion, and worldwide sanctions, it will be a slow but sure death. The only alternative to a slow death of Iran is massive military action.

Jim Lehrer brought up the subject of there not being any WMDs found in Iraq. This was a great failure of the American News Media. The concept of WMDs was created in the Clinton Administration and noone in the News Media questioned WMDs so long as they were being used to keep economic sanctions on Iraq. If the New Media would have investigated, they would have know and presented to the American people that WMDs were no longer in Iraq.

Anybody that says the problem was just Bin Laden is hiding their head in the sand. The problem has always been the Islamic Terrorists of the Middle East.

Overall, I believe the American school system has failed the news media because the news media obviously does not know what war is and how war is waged. Thus they are not qualified to report the Iraq War.

The obviously biased attitude by Jim Lehrer is proof that there should be censorship of the news media during any military conflict, because anything that does not bring the war to a swift conclusion causes increased deaths of American soldiers.

I wonder if the news media will ever have the courage to admit that President Bush was right on Iraq and the Middle East.
