Two questions - just to get it straight. Why do the code pinkers SAY they are out there? And what is the real reason?
I have my suspicions, but I want to know from you folks on the ground who are comforting these people.

They're in a quagmire, baby, yeah!
They started out thinking they could pull off another Vietnam-era PR disaster. But it's not working out.
By "comforting these people," I take it you mean the soldiers and their families, not Code Pink?

They want us to cut and run for a number of reasons, but mainly because they are wussies. They are don't believe in fighting evil because they don't believe in evil. Just people doing bad things. Plus, anything to make President Bush look bad. Alot of these folks don't even understand that they are being pawns of the Communists (ie ANSWER, MoveOn.org, etc). They are trying, and to a fair extent succeeding to convince people with their "war is not the answer" rhetoric, the same way they did in Vietnam. They prey on those that are not critical thinkers.

They run on donations so their leaders can run around the country and world. Second they started with the intent to find a "Born on the Fourth of July" person from the hospital to use as a poster boy. We stopped that cold and their rotation of people has not be consistant.

I was not there from week one, but I understand that Code Pink initially went to WR to draw attention to the "middle of the night sneaking" in of the wounded by President Bush.
But their initial signs were really anti-troop. Things like "Maimed for a lie" and on one occasion, flag draped card board coffins. Check out some of the early threads (links at the end of the AAR) that BufordP has diligently kept up.
Our presence at WR has shamed them into more passive signs. Some of the wounded that go down to see the maggots come back saying that their signs are not all that bad. We then explain what their signs previously said and who they really represent.
