Cindy Sheehan: A Real American Patriot

Go here and read this.

Read the entire article from beginning to end and think about it long and hard.

Heres a taste:

"As our President likes to speak about "our mission" in Iraq and "our mission of defeating terrorists" in the world, so Cindy Sheehan has found herself on a mission. Our President speaks resolutely of "staying the course" in Iraq. That's exactly what Cindy Sheehan is planning to do in Crawford (and undoubtedly beyond). George prides himself on not flinching, giving ground, or ever saying he's sorry. But he also had remarkably good luck until he ran into Cindy. Whether in his presidential runs, in Congress, or elsewhere, he really hasn't come up against an opponent who was ready to dig in and duke it out blow for blow, an opponent ready never to flinch, never to apologize, never to mince words, never to take prisoners. Now he's got one -- and like so many personal demons, she's been called up from the Id of his own war: A mother of one of the dead who demands an explanation, an answer, when no answer he gives will ever conceivably do; a woman who, like his neocon companions, has no hesitation about going for the jugular. And, amazingly, she's already made the man flinch twice."

If this does not move you, nothing will.

If this (of all things, and by now) does not help those of you that support Bush in this war see things in a different light, nothing will. ,

An excellent summary, JP. As you know, deep in the center of a nuclear weapon there is fission all the time. It only reaches a critical mass when the cross section is large enough. Maybe we are approaching that in Crawford.
