With all due respect, enough is enough

With all due respect to Cindy Sheehan, "get a grip woman".

It is true that Sheehan is suffering the grief of losing her son in a war that she personally does not endorse. Frankly, that makes her a member of a large club of parents throughout the ages.

It is true that she hates Bush. We have heard the rhetoric often enough, we get the message. You hate Bush.

But none of this excuses her comments describing the terrorist murders "freedom fighters".

"But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and [U.S. troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country."

Cindy - do you really believe your son was there to spread terrorism and that his murderers are "freedom fighters".

Thanks to people like Sheehan and others who spread this sort of garbage, the terrorists are given moral support (anyone remember Hanoi Jane?). Thanks to her and her ilk, others mothers are going to grieve for lost sons and daughters.

Get a life Cindy, you are being used by your loonie left buddies at You are not helping anyone and are, in deed, dishonoring your son's memory and sacrifice. You might find it more helpful for you to talk to your clergy rather than Michael Moore.

Isn't it time to go home and grieve in private?
