Who Said This?

Who said this? The answer is in comments.

Cindy Sheehan, a mother who lost a son in the Iraq War, is determined to prevent other mothers and fathers from experiencing the same loss.

Courageously she has gone to Texas near the ranch of President Bush and braved the elements and a hostile Jewish supremacist media to demand a meeting with him and a good explanation why her son and other’s sons and daughters must die and be disfigured in a war for Israel rather than for America.

Recently, she had the courage to state the obvious that her son signed up in the military to protect America not to die for Israel.

David Duke. Let's see--Mrs. Sheehan is admired by the likes of both Michael Moore and David Duke. It takes maximum kookiness to attract the most extreme elements of both the far left and the far right. No wonder serious leaders of the Democratic Party have kept their distance.

Now that the Cindy Show is on the road, it will probably get even stranger.

Michael Moore....

annoys me.

I recently came across yet another one of his 'open letters' to George Bush and in it he made an issue about poverty, you know, like poverty didn't exist before Bush and the thing is, it's not like he is trailing Bill Clinton, who's more or less forgotten about little old Slobodan Milosevic who is 'yet' to have a trial, who feigns illnesses in order to delay his trial and I don't get this because Clinton immersed himself with Yugoslavia when he was President but these days he has guest appearances that are televised on news shows around the world saying 'what should have been done in the aftermath of New Orleans' and the reality is, no one can predict whether it would have been different but they'd like fortune tellers.

Who's to say that other people would have managed the disaster 'better', now of course there are other minor issues making it through the media, but these come much later, after the initial barrage of blame, and these minor things concern the little bit about some residents not wanting to leave their homes in New Orleans.

It's all a bit like customer service: one can't please everyone.

but at the same time the Michael Moore's only pop up their heads when there's a chance they'll receive celebrity.

But I'd really like Moore to write a letter to Clinton to ask him why he isn't making an issue about Slobodan, a person who's regime resulted in genocide, not to mention sew the seeds of poverty, create hundreds of unwanted/discarded children as a result of rape...

The reason I say that above is because Slobodan was Clinton's pet project, but Moore doesn't speak of this.

All these events affect society as a whole but the Moore's only highlight the bits they (egotistically) think important.

(sorry I sound a bit miffed in general, but man, this week I've practically stopped opening newspapers just so I don't get into the issue of 'racism' (it's a multi purpose excuse that's usually used by the media) and tonight I took myself to the movies to escape and watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

L'etranger, I share your frustration in general.

Specifically, U.S. policy in the Balkans was a mess during the Clinton Administration. I've lived in the Balkans most of the time since 1997, and in addition to directly observing many events, I've studied the region extensively. Most of the media reporting was very poor, and very few U.S. policy makers knew what they were dealing with. It all culminated in the 1999 U.S.-led bombing of Yugoslavia over issues regarding Kosovo. I see bomb damaged buildings--not military targets--in Belgrade even today, and it never ceases to amaze me that our policy could have been so thick-headed and wrong.
