Anti-war folks ready for 2000 KIAs in Iraq; Some Freedom Fighter practical advice!

Well, after some R&R, I am back to blogging and nothing better than showing the true nature of the anti-war movement to get rolling again.

Update: Welcome Michelle Malkin readers!

As you may have seen on Drudge, The Washington Post reports that anti-war celebrity Cindy Sheehan is preparing herself for another media crusade when the KIA in Iraq reaches 2000. Does anyone else think it is sick how these people are going to turn this somber statistic into a media event? The saddest part is they are hoping and waiting to get to number 2000.

All the Democrats have now are tragedies. It is all they seem to talk about. They took Katrina and blamed everyone but the Democrat Mayor and Governor for the tragic loss of life. Now they are taking this looming statistic and instead of being mad as hell at the TERRORISTS, the ones killing our fighting men and women in Iraq, they are planning on chaining themselves to the White House fence.

Here is some practical advice for Cindy Sheehan and her supporters to stifle terrorist attacks against US troops in Iraq and save lives:

Why don't you chain themselves to the Syrian Embassy and demand that they stop insurgents from crossing into Iraq? Syrian insurgents are crossing the boarder daily with little resistance from the Syrian government. If they would stop these criminals from illegally crossing into Iraq, hundreds of soldiers may still be alive today. Demand a meeting with Imad Moustapha, the Syrian ambassador to the US and tell him to crack down on illegal boarder crossings.

Why don't you chain themselves to the Iranian Embassy (technically the Interests Section of Iran, as this country does not have an official embassy in the US) and demand that they stop giving weapons to terrorists in Southern Iraq? There are clear links between Iran and technologically advanced explosives that are being used to terrorize Iraqi civilians and American Soldiers alike. You can set up a meeting and demand they stop killing US Soldiers by providing advanced shape explosive charges to terrorists.

Well, you won't. Why? Because you want to politicize the war as much as they can. Instead of blaming the people that are killing our troops, you are blaming Bush. Be mad, be angry, but focus it on those that did these terrible things!

Cindy Sheehan, Bush did not kill your son, a terrorist did. When you understand that, the healing process can begin. But until then, your outrage is misguided and will not prevent number 2000 or 2100 or 2200, you will only ensure it. Cindy, be outraged at the terrorists and the governments that support them! If you camp outside of the Syrian Embassy, I will join you. And if you chain yourself to the Iranian Embassy, I will join you.

I don't think the Sheehans of the world "want" the KIA to reach 2000. Instead, they (rightly) see it as inevitable.

This is no way grants legitimacy to their claims. However, mischaracterizing what they are about diverts attention from the crucial issue – they do not believe that the United States has the moral right to protect itself. This is the premise that must be attacked.

Here is a suggestion for Cindy: Mourn your son in private. Stop using his dead body as a protest tool.

Another fine venue for protest is the Saudi Arabian embassy, not far from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. There is plenty of sidewalk there to protest their delivery of hundreds, maybe thousands, of suicide bombers intent on blowing Iraqi civilians to bloody chunks. May I suggest a protest chant against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia:

Hey, hey, Saudi A
How many kids did you kill today!?

I don't see a problem if she is chained to a fence until the 'whatever' ends, except maybe a sanitary issue. No cheating Cindy-no pit stops, no exercise breaks.

It's going to rain in Washington with temperatures in the 40s most of this week. She'll last 48 hours, then blame Bush when she gets pneumonia.

Oh Cindy ... and not like in Crawford, Tex., when you pretended to live in a ditch when the sun was up and the media there and then when everyone disappeared you went to a 4-star hotel. You were seen by members of the non "mainstream" media. You are a fraud, a hypocrite and a two-bit, phony-baloney, plastic-banana, good old time rock-n-roller!

Hey, Bob. Maybe instead of chaining yourself to the embassy you could enlist, go to Iraq and kick some terrorist ass.

Not quite as comfortable as what you're doing now, but you might find it enlightening.

Hey Vietvet did you see the part under Bob's About Me section. He's in ROTC and a senior. In about a year he just might be in Iraq or Afghanistan. Will you still try to use the chickenhawk line?

Thank you for your service Viet Vet. Maybe someday you will see how the MSM and the left are using people like you to weaken our country. Please, don't use the "chickenhawk" line on this blog. It is weak rhetoric that makes you look like a fool. You are better than that. You are a hero for serving when our country needed you the most. Don't let the left corrupt you!

Great article on the "Sheehanians" It really shows the inconsistencies with the left and the general mainstream media.

I'm also from Madison, and it's nice to know that someone does exist in this city with the same views.

I cant imangine what its like to lose a child to war. However I think what Cindy is doing is causing more mothers sons and daughters to be killed. I also feel that because of her son's service she had the right to protest. Maybe she should think about the freedoms that her son and others like him brought to the people of Iraq. And maybe someday those people will be able to protest and chain themselves to fences without the threat of being blown up by a suicide bomb.

Oprah magazine just had an article which portrays Sheehan as a saint, rather than the unbalanced person she is.

Now, I realize that an ROTC cadet probably isn't reading Oprah magazine (!), but the fact is that anything with Oprah's name on gets absorbed by a great number of Americans.

Fortunately there are enough Americans who now read things outside the mainstream media that we know the truth about Sheehan.

Her son was not killed by a 'terrorist' no matter how much you like to use that buzzword. At most it was a guerilla fighter trying to protect his home country.

I can't believe you people think that somehow we are safer because of the war in Iraq.

I also can't believe how so many people see the 2000th casuality vigil as a 'celebration.' Do you really think that, or are you just labelling it so as to smear the anti-war campaign? Use your common sense, people, you can't honestly believe that it's some kind of celebration.

I still see flash banners and pro-war material flashing Osama Bin Laden's face around. Bush is NOT looking for the person who attacked the US, and Iraq has nothing to do with him, no matter how hard the administration attempts to link the two.

What an idiot. Do you have any clue who is perpetrating the attacks in Iraq? Have you followed any of this or do you just spend your time perusing Michael Moore's website? Educate yourself and come back with a more intelligent comment. I bet you're one of those people I heard in a grocery line once, saying "Why are we deposing a man who received 99% of the vote in his country?" Utterly and hopelessly clueless.

Do not denounce my comment without proving it wrong.

A terrorist is anyone who uses terror in order to achieve their means. Heard of "Shock and Awe"? Terrorism.
Sure, they may be using terror, but the U.S. are the biggest terrorists in the world.

Yes, I was in that grocery line. I bet you're one of the people that hears 'terrorist' and the first thing that comes to mind is a turban or mid-eastern man.

I await a rebuttal - this time, try and include some facts instead of just name calling and conjecture.

On another note, I'll quote you:

Well if I were to risk a guess, hmmm... maybe... AMERICA?

Hey anonymous, you say "At most it was a guerilla fighter trying to protect his home country."

The beef I have with that statement is the 'protect his home country' part. The insurgents in Iraq do NOT fit that description. Not only are many from different countries, but the native Iraqi 'guerilla' fighters are not fighting to protect their country, but their lifestyle. Most Iraqis that do not like the US in their country are the ones that had power, privledge, and money under Saddam. It is painfully obvious that it is not the common man behind the attacks on American troops in Iraq when the insurgents drive BMWs and live in mini-palaces.

i say we let Ms. Sheehan do what she does best: act like a selfish, self-absorbed fake. Let her mewl and puke about "imperialism" and "occupation."

Meanwhile, the rest of us will see her as a sad, pathetic figure in need of extensive and thorough grief therapy, with cult deprogramming on the side.

I agree that a lot of resistance fighters are coming in from Iran or Syria, but you must think what they are fighting for, not where they are coming from.

Protect it from what, being liberated from Saddam Hussein? Having the power and water turned back on?

Idiot: you claimed that they were 'protecting' their home country and now we're not supposed to "think" about where they are from?

Rather, we should move the goalpost and "think" about what they are fighting for? They aren't fighting *for* anything. The so-called insurgency doesn't have any stated goals. We can infer that they would like to kill Sunnis...or Kurds...or Americans. You infer--incorrectly--that they are "fighting" for their "homeland" or to "liberate" Iraq from erm, um, having a say in their own future.
