While Cindy Sheehan was too fatigued for an interview for NRO, she did finish off her salad days in Crawford with some more Bush-bashing on the Pacifica Radio network show “Democracy Now,” aided by you through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. She was on with Tomas Young, who was serving with Casey Sheehan on the day he was killed, and is paralyzed from the chest down. He spent time at Camp Casey and plans to attend the big “peace” rally on the 24th. She disagreed with him here:
It wouldn’t be an honor for him to meet George Bush. It would be an honor to George Bush if he ever met Tomas, because Tomas has more courage and integrity in his pinky than George Bush has in his entire body. And we’re – actually, our plans are now to find a piece of property right by George Bush’s ranch and put up a veteran’s rehabilitation center there. So, he – for the rest of his life, he will have to look – George Bush will have to look and see what his policies did. He will have to look at people like Tomas and know that he has devastated so many people in this country by his lies and his deceptions, and when I see people like Tomas, it just makes me resolve to fight even harder for our young people over there and for the people of Iraq and really for the people of the world…they sent our children to be sacrificial lambs, to be slaughtered, you know, in the city. And it just really proves that our babies, our precious, precious children are nothing but cannon fodder to these people. I just want to encourage all of America to not give your children to these maniacs. When mothers stop allowing their children to be sacrificed for greed, that’s when the wars are going to stop.
