The Crazies You Will Always Have With You

Best of the Web offers a great explanation as to why I am essentially ignoring Cindy Sheehan.

Mohammad Fadhil, however, is another story.



  1. the second link was beautiful…now you’ll excuse me while I go and bawl my eyes out. that woman is such a bratish collage-protester. she had no idea what it’s really like, I bet ya. I feel for her that she lost her son, but dude. there is a fine line when the world stops caring, and she’s crossed it.

  2. The longer her so-called vigil goes on, the angrier I get.

    The woman dishonors her son quite callously, using his memory and service to his country and her grief as a means to advance her own cause — to be used quite blatantly and without remorse by the anti-war left (of which she is a dedicated member).

    She is an embarassment to our nation — and an anomaly among parents grieving for the loss of a child in this war. As the mother of a US Marine who has served in and is about to return to Iraq, as the wife of a US Naval officer who served in the un-recognized but very intense and frightening Cold War, the daughter of a US Naval officer who served through 3 wars — Korea, Vietnam and the Cold War — I can honestly say the only feeling I have towards Cindy Sheehan is disgust at her whining. She long ago lost my sympathy for her grief at the loss of her son.

  3. I recognize the valor and honor these men have shared with us, and I thank all of our servicemen who have or are serving our country. I may not be in the military; however, I come from many military folks who, although they weren’t all career military, they contributed to various wars and served their country with honor. Some sacrificing their very lives for the freedom we so easily flaunt.

    As for the Coldwar…it was truly a frghtening time in our history and has not been forgotten by us youngin’s….in fact, if the cold war hadn’t ended, we may not be in this terrorist mess that we are confronted with now. Some argue it was a matter of time; however, I think that both sides played the game with various foreign agencies to leverage an advantage over the other. Unfortunately, we have to deal with the fallout from the nearly 50 years of standoff, skirmish, and detente.

    Unfortunately, places like Iran are less likely to play the detente game as the USSR did. I am thinking if we let them get nuclear weapons, we will surely be facing terrible atrocities that far outstrip the devestation that 9/11 had on us all.

    May God Bless our Troops and all those who have served the United States of America.

    As for this woman, we should learn to do what so many others have learned…ignore her, don’t give her attention, and she will surely vanish into the wind.
