US may try Sheehan for anti-war campaign

US authorities have arrested a number of anti-war protesters, including high-profile activist Cindy Sheehan, during a demonstration in Washington DC.

Sheehan, who has been and anti-war campaigner since she lost a son in the Iraq war, may stand trial, reports indicate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the Obama administration: if it is true that you are actually dense enough to attempt to bring Cindy Sheehan to trial, what charges would be made against her?

That she exercised her First Amendment rights, under the Constitution, of free speech and free assembly?!?

Making a martyr out of this woman and her movement will absolutely invigorate every bit of anti-war sentiment which exists in this country, and that sentiment is growing exponentially by the millisecond.

Thinking people understand that we were lied in to the war with Iraq because of the potential for private profit from the oil.

They also understand that the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan were to produce two outcomes, also for private profit; the installation of pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil, and the control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

People are furious that their sons, daughters, precious family and friends, our brave young men and women in uniform, have fought, died, or gotten maimed for life in military operations which have absolutely nothing to do with the safety and security of the United States, but everything to do with private profit.

That is not what these young men and women signed up for, when they volunteered to join the US military.

And if our physically or mentally wounded Vets did, by some miracle manage to make it home, sick to death with depleted uranium poisoning, or maimed for life, the same government which cavalierly sent them into harm's way for private profit, found most of them completely expendable when they got back.
