Cindy Sheehan


Peace activist Cindy Sheehan discusses the “myth of the two party system,” the curious case and recent conviction of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, Rahm Emanuel’s attempt to purge antiwar candidates from the 2006 Democratic primary elections, why only poor people need to worry about austerity measures and coming to the realization that the fight isn’t between Democrats and Republicans but between the government and you.

Cindy Sheehan became a leader of the antiwar movement after her son, Casey, was killed in Iraq. Her efforts to get answers from President Bush, including a vigil in Crawford, Texas, have received national media attention. She has a website and radio show, is the author of Peace Mom: A Mother’s Journey through Heartache to Activism and wrote the introduction to 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military.

  1. It is indeed a myth. What it really is instead is a bi-factional one-party state. Two sides, back to back covering each others rear, to the same corrupt coin.

  2. The U.S. Government is broken. It's lawless at home and abroad. It's controlled by Israel, Wall Street, Big Business, Big everything. The District of Corruption is a vile shithole. Our sole party–the DemoPublican Party–is f–kin' worthless.

    What do Americans get today? Statism, lawlessness, imperialism, and warmongering. You won't get freedom, peace, respect for the individual at ANY price. . . .

  3. Is Sheehan still playing up her 'Gold Star Mom' status and whining on about how her darling baby son was unfairly extirpated before having had the opportunity to personally murder very many Sand-Niggers?

    If so, it is time to buck up her notions — as an adult armed participant in a wholly war-criminal enterprise, Sheehan Jr. was lawfully, justly and deservedly administered the death penalty for his transgression. I salute the valiant efforts of those Iraqi Resistance Forces who repelled this volunteer thug with extreme prejudice, as the situation warranted. The only problem is that each of his co-perpetrators and their whole chain of command are not yet introduced to a similar justice. Still, as there is no statute of limitations on such crimes, they will all in good time be gotten around to.

    As long as Sheehan and her acolytes are still bought into and propagating the patriotic/pragmatic myths of benevolent U$ Imperialist bumbling, they will continue as mere useful idiots for the warparty and remain condemned to corresponding insignificance.

    So, Cindy, I do not denigrate your honest efforts, but insist it is time to learn the hard lesson that leadership of an actually worthwhile 'anti-war' movement may require some moral intelligence and political guts – which is why it should be renamed The Resistance for a start.

    Or be content with failure, that is also an option.

  4. Oh please! We finally get a gutsy woman unafraid of the plutocrats and willing to start up an anti war movement and someone tarnishes her with the same brush used against the war mongers. What was the motivation? Jealousy, or perhaps covert neoconism? How can any genuine anti war person fight with Mrs. Sheehan?
    Her son was a dupe, as are so many people in this plutocracy.May he rest in peace.

    1. This is a classic example of the brown-nosed bilge spouted by gutless, witless, patriotic 'anti-war' hypocrites. A meaningless tiny faux-moral rant which demonstrates an iron will to avoid comprehension of genuine critique, never mind produce a lucid (counter-)argument or clarifying analysis of serial failure.

      Naturally, it is sealed with the obligatory obeisance of a Sieg Heil salute to the memory of one of the Pentagon's blownaparte fuckwit 'Heroes', while by omission pissing on the lives and graves of those violated and murdered by this jackbootboy and his ilk.

      IMO you, aeskylos, have shown yourself up as a vacuous, contemptible and immoral scum.
