John Lawrence wrote the most damning op-ed about Cindy Sheehan that I think I have ever read. I certainly have never seen an article like this in any of the big newspapers in the USA. Mother's call for Canada to open its arms to US military deserters struck a sour note with Mr. Lawrence. Here are just a few choice statements from Lawrence's article in the Canada Free Press...
"By railing against her own government, the likes of Cindy Sheehan encourage the enemy abroad to step up its attacks against other Americans and Candian sons and daughters, children such as her own."
"Apparently Cindy considers men who bury axes in the skulls of our soldiers and who rig roadside bombs to maim our forces to be innocent people."
"I believe the only legacy this distraught and bitter woman will leave is bad timing. She fought against her own country's involvement in Iraq too late for her own reasons, and she has arrived in Canada three months after a goverment that may have worshipped her was stripped of its power and replaced by a real one."
As if that was not enough, Lawrence ended his piece with this line that should be used for signs at Sheehan's anti-American rallies...
"Cindy, please go home, you are embarrassing yourself."
OUCH! Now THAT is going to leave a mark!
