The Anti-war movement grows in Crawford, Texas

Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq, is holding vigil outside the Bush compound near Crawford, Texas. She wants to ask him why her son had to die for a lie. And other mothers who lost children in Iraq are joining her. There were no WMD. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. It was an elaborate hoax foisted upon the world by Bush and Blair.

While Sheehan and the anti-war movement in Crawford, Texas, await scant media coverage, the corporate media focus on sports, entertainment, celebrity news, and, of course, on crime stories. Our sons and daughters are dying in Iraq, yet we go on with our lives as if there were no war.

Consumers are shopping and buying. The smell of cotton candy and popcorn permeate the air at county fairs. NASCAR is in full swing. The NFL preseason is beginning. Wolf Blitzer is talking his usual blather and Bill O'Reilly wouldn't know the truth if it crawled up his ass. Christians trot off to church every Sunday, mistakenly believing that Bush is one of them.

I heard a woman on a C-SPAN call-in show say that she did not want the war in her living room. This is a post-Vietnam mantra repeated by right-wing pundits who blame the media for turning public opinion against the war. The media did its job during Vietnam and brought us the stories -- gore and all -- so we could see at least a glimpse of what was happening there. And yes, thankfully, public opinion had a lot to do with ending the Vietnam war -- another war in which we should never have become involved.

More than 1800 families in the US have made the same sacrifice that Cindy Sheehan has. More than 10,000 Iraqi families have made similar sacrifices. Yet here we are going about life as usual without having to think about the war. We are disaffected by it except when the media manipulates us like puppets. Thank you, Cindy, for reminding us that there is work to be done to bring the troops home safely and to make sure Bush doesn't get us involved in another bloody scheme.

    I have no problem fighting the actual culprits behind 911 -- thus I am NOT anti war.

    The #1 terrorist / spy organization in the USA continues to operate openly in Washington DC — its called AIPAC.

    Who owns & operates the media -- that is why these spy stories involving israel are buried or never pursued. How do you distract from the biggest story since 911 ? You manufacture other stories (such as Cindy Sheehan) to suck up air time. Anytime Michael Moore is involved you should be aware that ZION spinning is going on. They thrive on controlling all sides of an issue.

    1. What do the following have in common: Clinton, Condit, Mc Greevy and 4 star general Byrnes ???

    2. What do the following have in common: Lewinsky, Levy, and Cippel ???

    the answer to #1 is: They were all duped into a MOSSAD honey trap.

    the answer to #2 is: They are all MOSSAD agents and all happen to be self identified practicers of judaism. Only 1.9% of the US population identifies themselves as practicing judasim. This is beyond coincidence. What about all the school shooters ??? Thank goodness they removed this COMPROMISED 4 star general from his post. There are still some patriots left in the FBI, CIA, and DIA that have not been deluded / fooled by the ZION lies.

    DONT LET THE ZION MEDIA SHILLS / WHORES distract from the reality that the MOSSAD has been trying to deceive our nation into fighting israels enemies for some time — including their complicity in 911. PURGE THE ZION TRAITORS including the scumbags FRANKLIN, ROSEN, and WEISSMAN.

    Don’t believe the ZION lies about BUSH. They are attempting to take down another president.

    FYI — another ZION shill was arrested last week — Abramoff. Looking forward to the next shill indictment of SAYANIM NOVAK.

    ZIONISTS are ANTI 1st amendment and ANTI 2nd amendment and they are also ANTI AMERICAN.

    Imagine this: In the middle of our 'war on terror,' a foreign government (Israel) has spies who have infiltrated the highest levels of the Department of Defense.

    Larry Franklin, Rosen, Weissman and the AXIS of ADL, AIPAC, and ISRAELI TRAITORS / ESPIONAGE — all indicted.

    ZIONIST Douglas Feith (the architect of the IRAQ war and the boss of indicted spy Larry Franklin) resigned August 9th, 2005 and has fled the country. This story was also buried.

    Who owns the MEDIA, the VOTE COUNTING MACHINES, the MILITARY, the POLITICIANS, the FEDERAL RESERVE ??? Research it to get ENLIGHTENED.

    The sudden use of “HOMELAND” instead of “our country” or “our nation” – is word warfare. Why are we not talking about protecting our country or our nation? I’ll tell you why. We are no longer to think of the USA as a sovereign nation – we are to think of ourselves as having a “homeland” in the ZIONIST government. Ironically, "HOMELAND SECURITY" is run by a dual US-ISRAELI citizen named Michael Chertoff.

    Those who think this is going to far – have no idea of the heartless, ruthless psycho-warfare propagandists we should be fighting.

    Remove these dual citizens from critical posts in the USA government IMMEDIATELY -- such as Michael Chertoff. NO MORE dual loyalties. This is a war -- not pattie cakes with your playground chums.

    I have a son that has died, but he ,did not die from war. He died from his condition that he was in CP. I don't see you left wing pussies crying over my son. YOU LEFT WINGERS have an agenda just like anyone else. It is sad that you use a woman and her son as you pushing point. This BITCH who the LEFT WING PUSSIES has USED....as a poster bitch should realize that by joining the military you run the risk of death. As a police officer too, as well run the possible risk of being shot at, THEY KNOW THE FUCKING RISK. I cannot believe that this pussycrying protest has gone this far. I have one final question. WHAT WILL YOU LIBERAL PUSSIES FIGHT FOR, (REMEMBER 9/11)
