Cindy Sheehan Calls Her Son A War Criminal

I decided to take a tour of Liberal World, and, lo and behold, another strange one. Common Dreams has an article up, supposedly written by Cindy Sheehan, entitled “The Abominations of War: From My Lai To Haditha,” in which “her” normal screed goes on to basically say that our troops are murderer’s and war criminals, thereby implicating her son Casey, on whose grave she finally got a headstone (2 years late), and has taken photo’s lying on, as a murderer and war criminal as well.

 The massacre in Haditha on November, 19, 2005, is just another way to underscore the fact that our troops are being turned into war criminals in what one article called: “The Worst War Crime of the Iraq War.” (Sydney Morning Herald; May 28 , 2006).

 Another false piece of propaganda that we are fed is that we need to support the president, especially when we are “at war.” I say, “No, way!” Our kids know the difference between right and wrong before they are sucked into a military system that dehumanizes our soldiers and forces them to dehumanize the “enemy” to the point where it is apparently acceptable behavior to kill children and to cover up the murders

 The most difficult part of this writing is in trying to reconcile the fact that our soldiers, for one example, in Haditha, could not show conscience and restraint, qualities which may have prevented a murderous rampage.

So, our soldiers who engage in *gasp* warfare, are war criminals and murderers. That is what she “wrote.” What does she think the military is for?

Guess what? She goes a step further, and shows that she does not support her own son:

 Support the troops? I support only those who are NOT supporting the exploitation of the Iraqi people, and those who do not allow the war profiteers to carry on with their death and destruction all for the sake of an opulent lifestyle. I do not support those who are supporting a criminally insane and treacherous foreign policy. However I, as the mother of a slain soldier, will do anything I can to support all of them by working to shorten their stay in an unwelcoming country, and bring them home from the quagmire that their so- called commander in chief forced them into.

So, she does not support Casey, who actually went back for a second tour on his own accord, to serve in Iraq, and who volunteered to go on the mission in which he lost his life, saving other soldiers, despite it not being his MOS.

Will the Left stop at nothing to undermine the United States? Apparently not. They are so overcome with seething that they probably do not even realize what they wrote under Cindy’s name.

Furthermore, just a couple more points.

First, regarding Common Dreams’ “list of illegal, immoral, and atrocious behavior”

  • 12 years of devastating sanctions that were responsible for killing over 500,000 Iraqi children. (8 years were under Clinton, and this actually provides a pretty good reason for deposing Saddam and freeing the people of Iraq)
  • The invasion was not sanctioned or approved of by the United Nations (Resolution 1441. ‘Nuff said)
  • Guantanamo Bay (nothing to do with Iraq. The prisoners were from Afghanistan. You remember, the country who harbored Al Queda?)
  • Using highly compensated mercenaries to carry out executions and torture. (gpt proof?)

Do Lefties actually read what they write? I doubt it. The other points on the list are either BS, hysteria, or over-exagerated. Typical.

Allah at Hot Air has more.
