Protesting DeLay

The Cindy Sheehan protest is clearly a protest against Conservatism, not against war. Sheehan is now heading 5.5 hours from Crawford to protest Republican Congressman Tom DeLay. I find it to be interesting that she is just protesting against Republicans. 2008 Democratic frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, has been a strong supporter of the war throughout. Not only does she want to continue the war, she wants to increase troop strength in Iraq. Isn't it funny how Sheehan has failed to call her a killer or demanded that she be impeached? Clearly, this is an anti-Conservative movement not an anti-war movement. Read more here.

Joan Baez

I thought Joan Baez was dead, but apparently she's alive and well and making foolish comments down in Crawford. When talking about the Sheehan protest she says:

"It's exactly like the march in Selma. The Selma paper didn't carry it. They just pretended that it didn't happen. There was just this great wall of denial.]."

Yeah, its exactly like that, except instead of denial, there is massive media coverage. And, instead of protesting to end racial inequality, the folks in Crawford are protesting to bring home our soldiers which would probably lead to chaos, civil war, and thousands of dead Iraqis.

On that note, the Democrats are supposed to be the great humanitarians. Why then, do they want us out of Iraq? If we leave, the violence will escalate and there will be a massive civil war. Thousands, maybe millions, will die. There will be starvation. Why? Because we lost a mere 1,800 lives and had to pull out. Don't you people see that what we are trying to do in Iraq is worth the sacrafice we are making?!? Do you humanitarians care at all about the wellfare of Iraqi civilians?

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.

Sean Penn is Truly a Fool

Sean Penn is in Iran helping to spread his anti-American ideology. He is publishing a journal of his travels in a SF newspaper. I'll touch on a few of his most idiotic statements here.

First, Penn loosely implies that the U.S. is wrong by not wanting Iran to get nuclear capabilities. Iran is "a nation of nuclear power", Penn says. I don't really know what "a nation of nuclear power" is, and Penn doesn't really explain his statement. I do know that there seems to be little reason for a country with one of the world's largest oil reserves to invest millions of dollars in building nuclear power plants when many of its people live in poverty. Any thinking person can see that Iran's nuclear program is a blatant attempt to build nuclear weapons.

Penn goes on to visit a mosque where extremists are screaming anti-American hate speech. Penn naively says, "And many, even among the worshipers at the Friday prayer service, do not subscribe to a literal interpretation of the call for 'Death to Israel' and 'Death to America.' However, in the mantra of chant, comes an adulated sense of horror."

ARE YOU F-ING KIDDING ME! Iranians are yelling "Death to America" and Penn thinks they're joking. I don't think I've ever read a quote that made me so angry and yet laugh so hard. Were the 9-11 hijackers joking? Perhaps those that bombed trains in Madrid and London didn't "literally" want to destroy Western Civilization. Maybe the Iranian insurgents pouring over the Iraq border and killing our American service people are some of the practical jokers that Penn has befriended.

Penn has absolutely no concept of what we are facing here. He thinks he can learn about a country like Iran by reading their state-run newspapers and meeting with government officials. The government of Iran is actively trying to subvert our efforts in Iraq. They are our enemy. Sean Penn can't see that even as hundreds of Iranians shout "Death to America" right in front of him.
