Cindy Sheehan calls President Obama a war criminal...
"Is the honeymoon over with that war criminal in the Oval Office?" yelled Sheehan during the rally before the march, to shouts of agreement from the crowd. "Why are we giving him a free pass when he didn't deserve it?"

Has she lost it that much?

6. from that article at the link
"War is bankrupting this country," said marcher Lisa Savage, who had traveled from Maine where she says her local school district is more than $1 million short on its budget.

"Just a few minutes of the war could pay for that," she said.

9. Originally, I was just going to post about the article itself and not about Cindy...
until I read what she said. These wars are still being waged and has been put on the backburner it seems.

She exposed her outright nuttery when she called Obama a war criminal.

7. She just blew all her credibility...
To even come close to equating Obama to the prior President who LIED US INTO A WAR is unbelievable.

Bush is getting drunk / high somewhere and when he hears this he'll laugh his ass off.

Great job, Cindy. Camping out in Washington next?

10. She was in the right place at the right time
And stood up for something important. That was a hard and good thing to do and I wont diminish it. However, I'm afraid her head has gotten rather over sized with all the attention and hearing her speak, well... I'm also sorry to say I don't think she's terribly smart.

It's unfortunate.

11. Cindy has a right to keep casting stones.
"Has she lost it that much?" - Yes, she lost flesh and blood in Iraq, the ultimate sacrifice for a mother.

19. Most troops will be out by the end of August...
but some will remain until 2011.

Obama announced this over a year ago.

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2009/02/27/62930/obama-to-ex...

That in no way makes him a war criminal. Troop withdrawal isn't as easy as packing a suitcase and getting on an airplane.

28. I hope so... Otherwise, Obama will own the war in Iraq, and it will drag him down to defeat in 2012.
Troop withdrawal can happen immediately, whenever it is deemed necessary.

We are still there because of oil and Iran, and to maintain our hegemony over that part of the world.

35. Sorry, but it can't happen immediately...
I know you think it's should be that way, but it's just not. In the real world, it's just complicated. No getting around it.

Besides, the war won't drag Obama down in 2012 unless he escalates it way beyond anything he's ever said. IMO, the thing that could force him out of office is if HCR backfires in a horrible way. He's staked his presidency on that.

50. The military can bug out in a moment's notice, even on a large scale.
It is not a matter of what I think... I wish it was, because we would have never gone to Iraq and Afghanistan.

We are there to steal all the oil we can, threaten Iran, and to let China know that they will have to fight us in order to achieve political and military hegemony over the Middle East, Persia, etc.

22. Yes, calling someone "crazy" because you don't agree is so "progressive"
And it also was when the Russians chose that method of marginalizing their outspoken ones.

Its against DU rules to attack personally, rather than to disagree, but apparently when the person is well-known, its OK to attack personally.

How.... "progressive".

Now, go ahead and attack me for pointing out your attack. That would fit the M.O.

"The friction was laid bare in August when Mr. Emanuel showed up at a weekly strategy session featuring liberal groups and White House aides. Some attendees said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Democrats who were balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul.

"Fing retarded," Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to several participants. He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items."

Under fire, Obamas chief of staff calls liberal strategy fucking retarded

According to a report Tuesday in the Wall Street Journal, Emanuel told a liberal strategy group in August that a plan to run advertisements against conservative Democrats who were "balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul" was grossly unwise.

"Fing retarded," Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to participants cited by the paper.

"He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items," the reporter said.

He was calling the plan to air the ads "fucking retarded."

Did you know anyone that has died in Iraq? She has certainly lost enough to speak her mind.

This is one of the most callous posts and some of the most callous responses I've ever seen on DU. Sometimes I'm glad I'm stopping by less and less.

48. Debate yes...
but it still does not make Obama a war criminal and you'd have a hell of a time trying to convince the majority...even here at DU...that it qualifies him as a war criminal. He's not the one the who lied us into war and he's been very frank about Afghanistan with the American people...much more so than his criminal predecessor.

I think the problem here is that some feel that criticizing Cindy Sheehan should be a no-no...as if she's above it because of her dead son. I say no. We have as much right to criticize her as much as you might believe that Obama is a war criminal.

76. Being a war criminal has nothing to do with truthfulness. If the drone strikes are illegal
under international law, than they qualify as a war crime. Whoever ordered them would therefore be a war criminal whether or not he lied about the attacks or started them.

40. You think it's okay to drag out her dead son every time someone criticizes her?
I've seen it here a thousand times. Someone says something negative about Cindy Sheehan and then her dead son used as a poor attempt to guilt people into shutting up.

She's got dings just like everyone else and she's not the only mother who has lost a son. Unfortunately, she's been marginalized by most as being unhinged long before this.

Her comment that Obama is a war criminal only further perpetuates the notion that she has lost it.

why is it that only Republicans can be war criminals? Is not a Democrat conducting the exact same wars right now? Do you think it matters to an Iraqi, Afghani, or American civilian whose loved ones are dying what political party the leader who is massacring them has next to their name?

82. Yeah, but that's life.
:D :hug:

I don't think Obama is a 'war criminal', but I am short on patience regarding our 'military adventurism'.

If he does not pull us out of Iraq within a year (or when he promised), he will not be re-elected.

72. Is he not dropping bombs on innocents?
I just read a story about how the CIA just authorized a drone strike against an American civilian in Pakistan, which killed him and a few others without so much as a warning, much less a trial. So much for Habeas Corpus. You smell a little funny to me, like someone who mindlessly believes in this phony left-right paradigm bull-shit. I completely believe in non-violence, I don't care who is in the white house.

49. Cindy jumped the shark when she went Hollywood at Camp Casey II
Food Not Bombs, who were feeding the folks at Camp Casey I, was asking if anyone could donate a battery for their bus while a catering service out of Dallas was providing meals for the people who followed Cindy to Camp Casey II.

58. Is the war in Iraq a morally just one?
While Cindy may be guilty of exagerated rhetoric, I can tell you from personal experience that she is not unhinged. While I don't agree that President Obama is a war criminal, I'm not about to abandon her for saying it. I've spoken to her at length, the day after her return from her trip to Jordan. The bottom line is, she considers the wars, especially Iraq, as illegal actions. In her heart and mind, she lost her son for no good reason! She wants all of our men and women home and she wants the ones that have been hurt to be taken care of. And, she wants our government to pay reparations to the people of Iraq for illegally invading their country and blasting it, and the lives of over one million innocent Iraqis, into pile of rubble.

Some of you could be a bit more understanding.

64. I agree
Unfortunately, the Iraqis will likely never receive reparations... Hell! We are still busy stealing all their oil.

69. My thinking is that corporate's like Cheneyburton has their claws in deep enough...
that it won't matter whether we're there or not. They'll siphon Iraq dry.

74. She also thinks income taxes are unconstitutional.
She's a nutjob. Someone who endured a tragedy, but still nuts.

84. "Is the honeymoon over with that war criminal in the Oval Office?"
....I'm not sure what the legal definition of a war criminal is but I suppose if you kill innocent men, women and children with hellfire missiles it wouldn't qualify you for sainthood....

"Why are we giving him a free pass when he didn't deserve it?"

Go Cindy Go!!....the more you speak the truth, the more I love to listen....
