"Momma Moonbat" Cindy Sheehan has written a piece at Buzzflash where she goes on her typical anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-anything she does not agree with rant. The article contains, as does anything ever written about or by her, the information that her son was killed in Iraq. We are always made aware of that as if it is supposed to give legitimacy to her activities. Her protests stopped being about Casey and started being all about Cindy quite some time ago. I think Cindy is guilt-ridden because, as I previously pointed out, she is responsible for the death of her son. She is blaming it on Bush but that is merely transference, a simple way for her to redirect to someone else (in this case, George Bush).
I usually ignore Sheehan because she is as irritating as a swarm of gnats but not nearly as attractive. But, I read the piece and it has a number of typical moonbat rantings, most of which are ridiculous. Her claims that the war in Iraq is about oil (where is all this oil?), the claim that there were no WMD in Iraq, something the Duelfer report indicates can not be ruled out, and of course the obligatory references to Bush and his disregard for the Constitution and all things decent. She even threw in a few headlines about "peaceful" anti war protesters being arrested. It has been my experience that anti war protesters are not peaceful and when they are they break other laws like trespassing and destruction of property. They seem to think that the right to peacefully assemble means they can break other laws in pursuit of their goal. Hell, look how Cindy used a straw man to purchase property so she could be near Bush and skirt around laws designed to keep the place peaceful.
I probably would not have known about this particular piece she wrote if it had not been for Sonnabend who made me aware of a certain part of her article that is particularly disturbing. In the article Cindy Sheehan tells this story:
I have a story to share. When I was in Jordan with the peace contingent, meeting with Iraqi parliamentarians, we heard the testimony of a Sheik who is also a respected mullah in Iraq. He told us that members of the US Army broke into his house, raped his wife, beat him severely, and took him to prison where he was further tortured in compliance with George‘s barbaric and cruel policies. All of this happened in front of his teenage son.
