Cindy Sheehan, the protesting Mom, is incredibly misguided. Here is what she had to say yesterday: "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism." If these two things would actually stop terrorism, I would be all for it but, of course, they won't. The terrorists seek to end Western civilization. They think that we are evil and should all die. Nothing short of this will stop the violence. Ms. Sheehan should spend less time in a tent in Crawford, and more time in the library grasping a true understanding of the nature of our struggle. I feel bad about the fact that she lost her son, but this does not give her free reign to make ridiculous statements without a backlash.
