Poster Girl For Anti- War Movement Resigns?

Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan who began campaigning against the war since her son died in the Iraqi invasion has announced that she will retreat from “working in and out of the system”.

In the Daily Kos blog posting, she said,

“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?”

Thought-provoking words indeed. Meanwhile, we hope that she would be able to be a good mother to her remaining children and salvage what she has lost. The anti-war movement had her human face in which she represented when she stood up and spoke against the war. Her work has not been to avail… people around the world are realising the seriousness and evilness of this invasion.
