Don't walk on my grave

One of the Marine mothers who is becoming vocal in support of the war stated that her son told her that if he died he did not want her to be another Cindy Sheehan. He told her, "Don't walk on my grave." He feels like 99% of us over here do. We still believe in the mission and can see the small daily changes. We wonder why our own media wants so badly to make this all go wrong.

I still feel sorry for Cindy Sheehan that she lost her son. I don't know how I would feel if Tanner were killed in a war but knowing what the stakes are here leads me to believe that even though I would be heart broken I would still understand that freedom is not free and that we continue to pay for the right to protest, have free speech, vote, own a weapon, etc.

Casey Sheehan volunteered to join the Army. He RE-ENLISTED too. He volunteered for the mission in which he was killed. He volunteered to pick up his rifle and try to help rescue comrades who were under fire. Should he have just said no? He could have when he signed up, when he signed again, or before the mission. He did not. He said YES three times. He knew what was happening, we all do but he knew he was going in harms way.

His mother soils his memory and the sacrifices of all the other parents who have lost their children by her incessant whining and pandering to the far left. The left has grabbed this straw and are using her. In her blog she swooned with star worship because Joan Baez came and sang at her mosh pit of a camp. That is the very same Joan Baez who was against the Vietnam war too.

Regardless what you hear, this is NOT Vietnam. In Vietnam you had a popularly supported uprising against an entrenched and very corrupt dictatorship. It was supported by more than 60% of the populace and funded by outside governments (Remember Mao, remember the USSR?). It pitted a standing army plus a very well organized guerrilla group of indiginous persons who sought self govenerment of their choice.

This is a conflict of deposed dictatorship lackeys who want their power back. They were and are a minority in their own country and are split along religious lines. It has foreign zealots who come in and kill the locals who just want to be left alone. It has a freely elected government that is struggling to stay afloat amidst the carnage caused by these unpopular and not well supported entities. They kill each other at times and wnat nothing more than all out civil war.

The Vietnamese did not fight for this or like this. This is NOT Vietnam. So; Joan Baez, Cindy Sheehan, Kim Basinger, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, and all you other leftists need to understand the real issues, the real fight, and the real danger here. What gets to me most of all is that every time we get in a protracted fight the left wants to remember Vietnam. I prefer to think of something much more recent. I think about 9-11. Where were all these so called experts then? Where was their outrage? Are they going to blame that on Bush and Cheney too?

Thank you for writing this. You are in Iraq. You know what's really going on there. And you are speaking the truth. Curiously enough, "your truth" exactly echoes that of my Iraqi friend in L.A. who has family back in Baghdad. Why so many on the left think that Muslims don't want the same peace and freedom as us speaks volumes about how racist they are.

My friend,
It is hard being back here and to stay civil in these times, then I have a problem being that way no matter where I am.

Sheehan is more than walking on her son's grave, she is crapping all over it. You can't imagine the quotes she is spewing now against the other Gold Star Mothers who she claims have been brain washed.

An interesting comment was raised on one of the local talk shows this morning. A lady called in and asked the host if he thought that Cindy had ever sought help in order to deal with the emotions of loosing her son. She went on to comment on how the women is showing all the signs of needing help and the sad thing is that when they are done with her the "Left" will throw her to the wayside and find another sucker to use in their effort to take down this country.

I spent last weekend in Columbus, Texas with a dear friend of mine and his wife. They have a son (SSGT) with the Marines in the Ramadi area and his other son (SGT) just returned from way out west (Camp Korea). The wife who is as sweet and Texan as a Bluebonnet said she would like to go to Crawford and kick some butt.

Wish I was there with you. Stay safe and keep up the good work. God Bless you and your family.

Interesting development here in the states. The press has dropped the Sheehan story for the most part and her support groups are leaving her behind.

For all you have been doing there in the last years there sure is a need for your experience and leadership here in the states. We need a KBR type operation to help the recovery.

God Bless.
