Cindy's Still Crazy

Here is part of an interview of Cindy Sheehan:

KNOLLER: You know that the president says Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism, don't you believe that?

SHEEHAN: No, because it's not true. You know Iraq was no threat to the United States of America until we invaded. I mean they're not even a threat to the United States of America. Iraq was not involved in 9-11, Iraq was not a terrorist state.

But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and [U.S. troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country. The terrorism is growing and people who never thought of being car bombers or suicide bombers are now doing it because they want the United States of America out of their country.

WHAT! First she says that "Iraq was not a terrorist state". That's just crazy. Over the last fifteen years, Iraq has invaded Kuwait and Iran, and dropped chemical weapons on the Kurds. In addition, Saddam was paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers in order to encourage more terrorist acts. To say that Iraq was not a terrorist state is to either be stupid or uninformed, and probably both.

Now, to call the terrorists killing allied soldiers in Iraq "freedom fighters" is even more crazy. Who's freedom are they fighting for? Certainly not Iraqi freedom, as most of these people are from neighboring countries. Additionally, they DO NOT want freedom in the Middle East. They have plainly stated that themselves. They want extremist Islamic theocracies, not democracies. To call the terrorists that killed her son "freedom fighters" is bordering on insane.

Why the media gives this nutjob so much publicity is beyond me. The overwhelming majority of families that have lost loved ones in this battle would disagree with what she says. For some reason, their voices are not as important as hers to the mainstream media.
