126. Sent two emails with three letters to AP - Thank you for the Alert
Why did you wait to use the word Patriotic to describe a pro-war, pro-Bush group~~

Cindy Sheehan and the people who support her are showing the highest patriotism. If this war is worthwhile why aren't Jenna and Barbara in it or other children of Congress and the Oligarchy?

Why do OUR TROOPS STILL!!!! NOT HAVE ARMOR ISSUED TO THEM AND ARMORED HUMVEES WHEN HALLIBURTON BROWN AND ROOT HAS BEEN AWARDED HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS???

How is this not giving our soldiers even the ammunition or sanitary food PATRIOTIC?? How is welshing on giving our troops even the minimal 2 years of medical benefits they were promised PATRIOTIC????

~~~Description

"Every day they bring to us from Iraq our son's bodies in a war with no meaning and with only one target which is the satisfaction of Mr. Bush.

Mr. Bush, who pushes our country to a new Vietnam he said that the reason of that war is to get out Saddam from Iraq but it seems
that oil was the target.

And what is the price, it is the blood of our son's which are killed daily on hands of Iraqi resistance, it is our country resources which decrease day by day , but unfortunately bush administration controls the media.

{AND THE AP'S SHAMEFUL DUBBING THE WAR MONGERS WHO DON'T CARE ABOUT OUR SOLDIERS WELFARE OR FAMILIES PATRIOTIC PROVES THE CORPORATE CONTROL OF THE MEDIA ONCE AGAIN}

In our country today the news of our defeat is faked into victory & only the filled half of the glass is shown. Please participate to stop the misleading and share us to stop blood and money bleeding.

And please if you have an answer to this question please do "for whom thousands of our son's die in a war only for Mr. Bush satisfaction?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so disgusted by the treatment of Gold Star mother Cindy Sheehan by the UNPATRIOTIC Bush Regime and the Corporate Controlled Media. Making the mother of a soldier and the other Gold Star families, Veterans for Peace and other individuals citizens asking for answers about this illegal war TO WALK IN A DITCH WITH FIRE ANTS AND DIFFICULT FOOTING on a PUBLIC ROAD PAID FOR WITH TAX PAYER MONEY and rarely used public road while the sheriffs and the news media walked on the paved road is just the beginning of the insulting way the Cindy Sheehan and other parents, relatives and friends of the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice are being treated.

This image though not photographed will stay in my mind and the minds of other Americans including Veterans of the illegal Iraq, Vietnam and Panama wars brought to grieving Americans and the world by the Bush Crime Family.

Cindy Sheehan wants answers on the Downing Street Minutes and other proof that her son and the children of other Americans lives were treated, as quoted by Henry Kissenger in Bob Woodward's book "Soldiers are just dumb mules to be used in the service of the state." not only is this statement an outrage against Humanity but the way Bush treats the US soldiers, cutting their benefits and not
supplying basic equipment and I believe Kissenger has been indicted for quite a while by an International War Crimes court for crimes he and Bush, Senior committed against the people of Vietnam and South and Central America.

THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL PATRIOTIC??!!

US soldiers have been sent to die for lies for a long time without any or enough detailed coverage by the Mainstream Media.

Cindy has a lot of questions and so do the American people. Mr. Bush needs to answer them. Please write articles with journalistic integrity about Ms. Sheehan's questions which also represent the question of over 60% of the American people who now believe that Bush's Iraq war was a mistake based on evidence like the Downing Street Memos.

PLEASE ALSO REPORT ON THE DESECRATION OF THE WAR MEMORIAL CROSSES AT CAMP CASEY!!!

Sincerely,

XXXX
:mad: :wtf: :kick: :banghead: :grr:

~~~~~~~~~~

Please Interview Cindy in Crawford. It is vital to saving the lives of American~soldiers and the Iraqi people including children. The Downing Street Minutes and Memos prove the treasonous lies that Bush told the Congress and the American people and soldiers to begin the Iraqi war, occupation including torture, mass arrests and deliberate, GENOCIDAL murder including children and to stop this suicidal PNAC plan of world dominion which will lead to World War III if the Bush
Regime attacks Iran or Syria or North Korea as planned and if the US does not pull out of Iraq and let an International Peacekeeping force take over.

Cindy can articulate the justifiable fears and anger of the American people at this never-elected Resident in our White House and the insane plans by Cheney to attack Iran and the depleting of our treasury for Haliburton non-bid contracts and the work paid for and not done by Haliburton Brown and Root in rebuilding the infrastructure of Iraq after we blew it to hell, and the danger to the children, the elderly and the ill of sewage in the water and the lack of electricity in 130 degree heat and the anger directed towards our soldiers because of it must also be reported on in-depth.

A Cindy-Watch like the Lone Star's Iconoclast's coverage would be appropriate considering the interest in Cindy and her message and the way a Gold Star mother is being treated by the Bush Regime.

The way Cindy and her supporters have been treated by the Bush Regime and the danger to her by the shotgun blast during a prayer vigal and the truck that desecrated the war memorial Crosses, Stars of David and the Crescents must continue to be reported.

Sincerely,

XXXX

Please keep sending Cindy and her supporters snail mail postcards and letters. Thank you.

Cindy Sheehan
