Left foot! I am really disappointed in them. They have bloggers that post from both sides of the house but for the last three days the comment I entered on one of Cindy Sheehan's posts just never gets there. There are several other comments noting that it is their 3rd or 4th attempt. I also noticed that those that seem to never make it until the 4th try are those that disagree with her.
I don't disagree with a mother grieving for her son, but I do disagree with pulling all of the military out of Iraq, now. The U.S. can't leave a country with a half built infrastructure especially since we were the ones to tear down the previous one (crazy or not the country was stable). I had pointed out in my comments time and time again that there was good happening over there but that the media did not show it. I also pointed out that it was appalling for her to state that every soldier that died (including her son), died in vain as a senseless death. I also reminded her of such political things as the horrid backlash this country would suffer from the UN and other UN & EU nations if the U.S. just walks away now leaving the country to implode. The deaths of all of the innocent Iraqis are what would truly be a senseless death.
None of this, absolutely none of this made it under Ms. Sheehan's post. So I guess or gather that the only dissenting posts they will post are those that make themselves out to be utter loons. The folks that make an educated, calm and reasonable response seem to just disappear. So I guess I should write my response more like:
"ms sheehan u'r soo wrong grl! what er u thinkin? em solderboys R such qdpies!!!!!!"
