Re: Sheehan tells it like it is!

First off, Mrs. Sheehan has my sincerest sympathies. She lost a son, and I cannot imagine a more terrible event.

If there are military men and women who want to come home, then those military men and women need to realize that they swore an oath to obey the orders of the President of the United States and the officers appointed over them, regardless of their personal beliefs, unless those orders were immorral or unthethical (as defined by the UCMJ). If you haven't served and served honroably, please don't attempt to counter comment on this because it's an idea that is difficult to understand unless you've worn the uniform, and worn it honorably.

To call the Camp([search]) Casey movement a "phenomenon" is a far stretch. Friday's Gallup Poll showed approval for the Iraq war at 44% ("somewhat approve" at another 12%) , the President's approval rating at 46% (although his positive numbers including the "somewhat satisfied" numbers place him at 57%), and approval for the so-called vigil at Camp Camp Crawford at 33% (with 38% saying they were "completely against" her vigil). I ususullay don't like to use statistics to make my arguments, but it seems fitting in response to Mrs. Sheehan's letter. The only phenomenon I see is that the silent majority is waking up and responding to a vigil that mainstream America cannot sympathize with.

Now it's been widely under-reported that President Bush has already met with Mrs. Sheehan (along with numerous other grieving families who lost loved ones honoring their oath and sacrificing honorably). Mrs. Sheehan walked away from that meeting having nothing but glowing comments for the President and his "genuine concern". Four months later, her tune has changed. Why?

Could it be that she has become a mouthpiece for MOVEON.ORG? Could it be that she is receiving financial support from multiple democratic party organizations?

Mrs. Sheehan, why shouldn't you by "villified". You claim to be holding a 24/7 vigile at the ranch, but yet you spend your nights in a hotel (source: NPR, 19AUG05). You claim that you're doing this in Casey's honor, but yet you show your true agenda with comments about "getting the US out of Israel([search])" (source: NPR 19AUG05). You call our Commander in Chief "a coward" during a time of war. You assist CODEPINK.ORG in raising money for terrorists groups (oh wait, I forgot that $600K was for food and blankets for the dead terrorists' families), and you penly agree with their counter-recruiting effort (source: multiple links on the soldiersagainstcindy.com BLOG).

Lastly, how can a mother belittle the death of her son? Her son was an adult, who enlisted on his own valition and accord ... He volunteered. He believed in military service, and all the benefits and risks associated with it.
