Cindy Sheehan | The Day of the Dead
Cindy Sheehan, Truthout:
“I can guarantee what you won’t see this holiday weekend are images of the over one million Iraqi dead. Say we assign, in an arbitrary way for purely illustrative purposes, an average height of five feet for every person killed in Iraq and then line those people up from head to toe. That gruesome line would stretch from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon - 950 driving miles up Interstate 5. If we count the Iraqis who have been forced to flee, we would have to go back and forth between Los Angeles and Portland another four times.”

O the trouble I could get into for speaking my mind on this topic.
Let’s just suffice it to say….Here is a link with every intervention that the USA has embarked upon.
Can you count how many were based (in reality) on defending our freedoms? The freedoms so we can talk freely about any subject (unless its deemed a threat to national security)

Memorial Day was instituted as a memorial to the people who died in its creation and maintenance, not as a celebration of the armed forces. Since the 1970s, Memorial Day has morphed into a military holiday that is only partially solemn. When Memorial Day is restored to its rightful purpose, perhaps we can then have a discussion about how this might be an inappropriate commemoration of the people who have died. Until then, this is a perfect commemoration of the people who have died and been maimed because of American militarism in the last quarter century.

Thank you for giving us a much needed dose of harsh, brutal reality, Mr. Fish.
