The Circus of Sheehan is Getting Ready 2000

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cindy Sheehan, the military mother who made her son's death in Iraq a rallying point for the anti-war movement, plans to tie herself to the White House fence to protest the milestone of 2,000 U.S. military deaths in Iraq.

Another anti-war group, Peace Action will protest in a dignified manner, not seeking publicity for themselves. "We ask that people do not bring signs or posters, just candles and perhaps pictures of soldiers," the notice for this event read. "No megaphones or speeches. Quiet mourning, prayer and song. No opportunities to offend or exclude."

I don’t agree with any of their politics, but I cannot find anything wrong, much less worthy of complaint about the way Peace Action choose to deomonstrate. However, Mrs. Sheehan, I feel is once again searching only for a way to draw attention to her self.

Hiding behind the death of her son, and a “peace movement”, I cannot help but feel that Cindy Sheehan is repeatedly stepping up her actions to draw more attention to herself, not the cause she is supposed to support. Tying herself to a fence will not make America focus on the troops. It will make America focus on her.
