A message to Cindy Sheehan (From an Iraqi blogger)
Blog Spot ^ | 12 Aug. 2005 | Unknown Iraqi Blogger

Posted on 08/13/2005 3:56:56 AM PDT by txradioguy

Friday, August 12, 2005

A message to Cindy Sheehan I realize how tragic your loss is and I know how much pain there is crushing your heart and I know the darkness that suddenly came to wrap your life and wipe away your dreams and I do feel the heat of your tears that won't dry until you find the answers to your question; why you lost your loved one?

I have heard your story and I understand that you have the full right to ask people to stand by your side and support your cause. At the beginning I told myself, this is yet another woman who lost a piece of her heart and the questions of war, peace and why are killing her everyday. To be frank to you the first thing I thought of was like "why should I listen or care to answer when there are thousands of other women in America, Iraq and Afghanistan who lost a son or a husband or a brother…”

But today I was looking at your picture and I saw in your eyes a persistence, a great pain and a torturing question; why?

I know how you feel Cindy, I lived among the same pains for 35 years but worse than that was the fear from losing our loved ones at any moment. Even while I'm writing these words to you there are feelings of fear, stress, and sadness that interrupt our lives all the time but in spite of all that I'm sticking hard to hope which if I didn't have I would have died years ago.

Ma'am, we asked for your nation's help and we asked you to stand with us in our war and your nation's act was (and still is) an act of ultimate courage and unmatched sense of humanity. Our request is justified, death was our daily bread and a million Iraqi mothers were expecting death to knock on their doors at any second to claim someone from their families. Your face doesn't look strange to me at all; I see it everyday on endless numbers of Iraqi women who were struck by losses like yours.

Our fellow country men and women were buried alive, cut to pieces and thrown in acid pools and some were fed to the wild dogs while those who were lucky enough ran away to live like strangers and the Iraqi mother was left to grieve one son buried in an unfound grave and another one living far away who she might not get to see again.

We did nothing to deserve all that suffering, well except for a dream we had; a dream of living like normal people do.

We cried out of joy the day your son and his comrades freed us from the hands of the devil and we went to the streets not believing that the nightmare is over. We practiced our freedom first by kicking and burning the statues and portraits of the hateful idol who stole 35 years from the life of a nation. For the first time air smelled that beautiful, that was the smell of freedom.

The mothers went to break the bars of cells looking for the ones they lost 5, 12 or 20 years ago and other women went to dig the land with their bare hand searching for a few bones they can hold in their arms after they couldn't hold them when they belonged to a living person.

I recall seeing a woman on TV two years ago, she was digging through the dirt with her hands. There was no definite grave in there as the whole place was one large grave but she seemed willing to dig the whole place looking for her two brothers who disappeared from earth 24 years ago when they were dragged from their colleges to a chamber of hell.

Her tears mixed with the dirt of the grave and there were journalists asking her about what her brothers did wrong and she was screaming "I don't know, I don't know. They were only college students. They didn't murder anyone, they didn't steal, and they didn't hurt anyone in their lives. All I want to know is the place of their grave".

Why was this woman chosen to lose her dear ones? Why you? Why did a million women have to go through the same pain?

We did not choose war for the sake of war itself and we didn't sacrifice a million lives for fun! We could've accepted our jailor and kept living in our chains for the rest of our lives but it's freedom ma'am. Freedom is not an American thing and it's not an Iraqi thing, it's what unites us as human beings. We refuse all kinds of restrictions and that's why we fought and still fighting everyday in spite of the swords in the hands of the cavemen who want us dead or slaves for their evil masters.

You are free to go and leave us alone but what am I going to tell your million sisters in Iraq? Should I ask them to leave Iraq too? Should I leave too? And what about the eight millions who walked through bombs to practice their freedom and vote? Should they leave this land too? Is it a cursed land that no one should live in? Why is it that we were chosen to live in all this pain, why me, why my people, why you?

But I am not leaving this land because the bad guys are not going to leave us or you to live in peace. They are the same ones who flew the planes to kill your people in New York. I ask you in the name of God or whatever you believe in; do not waste your son's blood. We here have decided to avenge humanity, you and all the women who lost their loved ones. Take a look at our enemy Cindy, look closely at the hooded man holding the sword and if you think he's right then I will back off and support your call.

We live in pain and grief everyday, every hour, every minute; all the horrors of the powers of darkness have been directed at us and I don't know exactly when am I going to feel safe again, maybe in a year, maybe two or even ten; I frankly don't know but I don't want to lose hope and faith.

We are in need for every hand that can offer some help. Please pray for us, I know that God listens to mothers' prayers and I call all the women on earth to pray with you for peace in this world.

Your son sacrificed his life for a very noble cause…No, he sacrificed himself for the most precious value in this existence; that is freedom.

His blood didn't go in vain; your son and our brethren are drawing a great example of selflessness. God bless his free soul and God bless the souls of his comrades who are fighting evil. God bless the souls of Iraqis who suffered and died for the sake of freedom. God bless all the freedom lovers on earth.

Casey's sacrifice is not forgotten by his military brothers either.

Rest in peace soldier.

These letters to Casey Sheehan's family were never sent. Military personnel gave them to the family after his death.

March 13-14, 2004
"The Beginning"

It was a long ordeal starting out at 1100 Saturday morning. We arrived at the back dock to find out we weren't leaving until 2:30 that afternoon. And so began a lot of waiting around. The married soldiers had their families to see them off, and all I had was a call home the night before. Mom cried her eyes out over the phone, not the first time it happened either.

From the back dock we loaded onto a bus that took us to the iron horse gym, where we did some more waiting and the families had one more chance to say good bye. From there we took another bus to Abrams gym, where we actually did some manifest processing for the flight.

They had a nice setup for us, too. Phones, Internet, video games, food, free stuff and music were all provided prior to the next bus ride to the plane. At 6:30 p.m. Saturday, they formed us up and herded us onto the bus for the plane.

As we loaded the plane, the flight attendants proceeded to tell us we were making a stop in Ireland before we got to Kuwait. Unfortunately for us, we have to stay on the plane while the crew changes and the plane is refueled. We will be landing in Ireland shortly, then on to Kuwait.

We stayed in Ireland for about 4 hours. While we were here, there was also a National Guard unit from Sacramento. I spoke with the sergeant major of that unit and let him know I was from Vacaville.

I also spoke with one of the airport employees. She told me about the country and the different things to do. She also informed me that my family name is well known here. Shortly after that, we boarded the plane for Kuwait which we were informed will take 6 hours and 4 minutes to get there..

March 31, 2004

Hey Family:

I've finally made to Iraq. Luckily for us, there was no threat to our convoy.

How is everyone doing? I wish I could be home for Jane's graduation.

We should be looking at a pretty smooth year. The unit we are replacing had only two deaths during its time here. Anyway, I didn't think Mom needed to know that. She's already too worried about me being here.

I'm glad I finally got to write. They didn't give us the address until we got to our camp. I'm also glad I got to talk to Mom for a bit about a week ago. She probably doesn't remember because I woke her up.

I had an interesting flight. We flew from Fort Hood to Ireland. We had had 3 1/2-hour layover there. I spent $1.30 for a coke out of a soda machine and got 70 cents back in Eurocoins. I got to speak to one of the employees at the airport. She told me about the country and said that our last name is very well known.

After Ireland we landed in Kuwait ..

Not that this will be picked up by the MSM...but I wanted my fellow FReepers to see how the Iraqi people truly feel about myself and my fellow soldiers and what we're doing over there.

It get's very frustrating having been there and then coming back to the world being told that what we are doing there is a lie.

the above post by me are some letters from Casey to his family in the days before he was killed. I believe that Cindy is lying about her son's hatred of the military. I do not feel good about critiquing the letters from a solider to his family- but this woman's lies have really stunned me.

“I have lost almost every friend that I had before Casey died. My husband and I are separated, because he doesn’t support my activities, although he knows the war is a lie.”-cindy sheehan

Nice post TX...Casey believed in what he was doing, he was a professional.

I think Mom has the same attitude, she's a professional as well...

My grandmother opposes the Iraq war, Cindy, but she's not a leftist tool like you are. Therefore, I can respect her and love her, unlike the members of your family who have to put up with your crap.

"It is the greatest undertaking of this generation. It is good, and true, and right."

Agreed. This sums it up for me:

"In every generation, the world has produced enemies of freedom.

They have attacked America because we are freedom's home and defender.

The commitment of our Fathers is not the calling of our time."

George W. Bush

Agree-It is one thing to oppose the war- it is another thing entirely ,to use propaganda to manipulate our national defense in order to fulfill a socialist agenda.

Cindy Sheehan is a liar and she is lying about her own son. How sad that she has disgraced herself, her family, her son, and all of the parents who of our military members. I had some empathy for her in the past- but I am finding it very difficult to muster any respect for her at all anymore.

God rest the soul of Casey Sheehan.

I know it is vulgar- I apologize to anyone it may offend. Hopefully not too many of our military will see it- I guess if cindy doesn't take down the President she can at least undermine our troops morale,that should make her leftist buddies thrilled. She is a very sick woman with some very sick friends.

DBR...speaking for myself...I understand that the picture is one of those "necessary evils" that needed to be posted.

It highlights how this woman is exploiting the death of her sone for extremely selfish and stupid reasons.

A very good essay – I wonder if Cindy Sheehan would even bother to read it if handed a copy. I feel she is too selfish to care about anyone other than herself – particularly now that she is a media celebrity.

It is a great letter.

Unfortunatly, Sheehan is too consumed with her own hate of Pres. Bush and America to listen and take heed in it. The issues surrounding her "pain" and grief go way beyond Casey's death, God keep his soul.

I seriously hope she seeks professional help. And asks God to help whatever she's trying to go through.

Thanks Txradioguy for a great post. It is important to hear the thoughts of Iraqis, especially on our side when we hear so little.

Below is a shortcut to a post for Staff Sergeant Micheal Schafer. He died recently in Afghanistan. Debbie Forbes' tribute is another beautiful antidote to Madame Sheehan's bitterness. If you would please pass it on. It is very worth seeing it is so beautifully done. Thank you for letting me take some of your time.

This message has gotten lost amidst all the anti-war rhetoric. I'm glad the Iraqi blogger included the vivid reminder. I hope the Iraqi people are stronger than the leftist Saddam sympathizers and give him his due when the time comes. (But when is that time? Did they decide on life imprisonment without a trial?)

Wow, big shock there! I have drawn heat on FR in the past when I say that I applaud the people who leave (or cheat on) poor spouses and find a better, more compatible romantic companion.

I hope those folks see what I mean now.
