Cindy Sheehan profits from her son’s death just like Halliburton.

Cindy Sheehan leads the charge of pro-defeat movement by saying that “war profiteers as Halliburton are raping the American tax payer of billions of dollars as a matter of company policy” (from original article by C. Sheehan). 

Any reasonable man had to admit — all corporations, just like people, are different. Most (not all, of course) corporations are law-abiding, free-enterprise inventors of new technology, wonder drugs, products and services that drive our lifestyle and powerhouse economy. I am not expert of Halliburton, so, for the sake of argument only, let us say that Halliburton indeed is dirty.

But my point is not about how profoundly useful most honest and law-abiding corporations are. My point is this:

Cindy Sheehan exploits her dead son for own political and financial gain in the very same way as (supposedly dirty) Halliburton exploits war.

FACTS:

1. Cindy Sheehan declared that she runs for Congress against Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) (video from PoliticalTickerCNN blog).

2. The members of Sheehan’s own peace organization, the Crawford Peace House, have admitted that “tens of thousands donated during Cindy Sheehan’s 2005 war protest are unaccounted for” (from AP report at SFGate).

QUESTIONS:

Would she be in position to run for Congress, if her son would be alive?

Would all that money be given to her if her son would be alive?

Where is the money?

How can SHE talk about Halliburton when SHE embezzled money given to her because of her dead son?

Is she not RAPING American conscience for profit, using corpse of her WAR HERO son as a flag, just as she accuses Halliburton of doing the same?

  1. Are you as upset when Halliburton makes billions from the war, yet American soldiers are not given the proper equipment to protect themselves and when they come home it is difficult for them to get the proper medical care?

    I am VERY upset any time soldiers get sent to war with poor equipment and are not taken care of.

    I believe soldiers should walk on gold and red carpets. They put their life on the line more than any cop or firefighter ever does. They live in horrible conditions of war.

    They should have their salaries doubled, if not tripled. They should have full-body amour and best damn Humvees there are.

    I do not hate Bush for the war, I hate him for, as Rumsfeld says, “going to war with army you have”. You CANNOT fight war on the cheap.

    If Bush IS to be impeached (unlikely), I SINCERELY hope it is for Walther Reed Army Hospital, not for invading Iraq.
