Cindy Sheehan – STOP IT!

SOME have called Cindy Sheehan the next “Rosa Parks” or even gone as far to call her “a hero too, fighting to bring our soldiers home”. I’m sorry I DON’T feel the same as those who think of her in this way. I do lift her up in prayer and am sorry for the tremendous grief she suffers because of the loss of her son, Casey Sheehan, who died while serving our country. However that is exactly what he was doing, serving our country, something that he signed up to do. It was his decision. He had re-enlisted with the Army in August of 2003, knowing that his unit would eventually be deployed in Iraq. He knew the consequences of war. It is her son Casey who is the hero (an American Solider who died serving his country). I just wonder how her son would feel about this? She has already met with the President face to face and now she demands to meet with him again. Why? What good what it do? I just saw a commercial that is paid by those who support her, and honestly I think she is humiliating herself. Her lies and verbal attack against our President is completely undignified. Other family members of fallen solider Casey Sheehan are calling out for Cindy to “Stop it” http://www.drudgereport.com/flashcs.htm.

I normally don’t speak out on political issues, but I think Cindy Sheehan needs to STOP trying to disgrace our country/President, and start honoring her son’s service to our country, something he obviously took great pride in. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for doing a job he was proud of doing. I believe she has a right to her own political opinion (from what I have read she was an anti-war activist before her son’s death) but to use her son’s death is completely distasteful. I admit that it may be rude of me to criticize her, but enough is enough.

Thank God we have so many brave soldiers willing to fight for our freedom. It's these soldiers whom have given Cindy Sheehan and the rest of the U.S.A. the freedom we so often take for granted. Cindy Sheehan should thank our soldiers for the freedom she is utilizing. Lisa

I agree with Lisa...these people seem to be unaware that the very men they are speaking out against are the ones they should be thanking for their freedom to speak out! If nothing else, the least they could do is acknowledge it - then, I guess, that would be defeating their "purpose"...whatever that is!

Thanks again for all you and Jason are doing for this country!

I agree with all 3 of you. At this point she's humiliating herself. Like Deanne said, it was his decision and out of respect for her son, she should be thankful for what he did and what our soldiers our doing as we speak.

Glad to hear that you and Jason are make on the mend. :) Take care!

This lady needs to be thanking our soldiers. If it were not for them, she would not be able to speak her mind. She really needs to get a life, at least away from the media. I actually think this lady need some help.

Take care, and hope things went well yesterday for you on the web cam with your honey.

I think she's just searching for somewhere to place the blame for her son's death instead of just accepting that it's no one's "fault." Her search is in vain.

She needs to lay this matter to rest because like you said in your post, her son joined the military voluntarily and with that goes the complete knowledge of all that entails - possibly even their own life. I must admit, I'm completely appalled that she's letting ridiculous socialists like Michael Moore help her fight this battle. I don't think this is something any soldier would want post partum.

Let your son rest in peace, Cindy Sheehan! I fear the only thing she's accomplishing is making an utter spectacle of herself.
