This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

Now It's Personal

It is tragic that it takes the loss of 20 young Marines to do it, but suddenly, there is enough pain, in a single place, to make this obscene war a reality to the state of Ohio. Will it be agonizing enough to be the catalyst that focuses the spotlight on Bush, who, like a true Texas sidewinder, is hiding under a rock on his Crawford ranch while Cindy Sheehan stands outside his gate, calling him to account?

As Bush War Gets Personal, Nation Must find its Outrage

"Where, in God's name, is the outrage? Where are the protests in the streets against a government that has lied to its citizens and taken them for everything they hold dear?"

"Where, in God's name, is the outrage?"

I've been wondering about that for a couple years now. Then again, this war is only in its third year. How long did the Vietnam war drag on before enough people got pissed off enough to fight back? That might be how long it takes for enough people to fight back this time around, too.

Still, I think deep down, a lot of us want to believe that our government would never under any circumstances sanction brutality, bloodshed, and destruction of this magnitude. Maybe that's holding some people back. I know I want to believe it. But I can't believe that anymore -- Abu Ghraib killed it.

My 2 cents.

Maybe Cindy Sheehan is right about her protest, that this is the beginning of the end of the war in Iraq.

Maybe there will be a groundswell of opposition in Ohio. Wouldn't that be ironic, after the election fraud in 2004 that gave Bush a second term.

A little help from the MSM would help alot. Remember, it was their coverage of 'Nam that started getting people stired up here at home. have Walter Cronkite and the "old" Dan Rather back again.

If Cindy can get enough MSM coverage this just be what gets the big ball rolling down that steep hill.

She has generated a is criminal that the media (liberal media, right!) covers essentially nothing. It gives her 30 seconds here or there, but not enough for her to pose her questions....they don't want people to know that people are questioning George........
