"Cindy was real and had a legitimate voice from the heart. The spin masters were trying to paint her as a person who was strictly anti-war, and not aligned to the mission of the soldiers in Iraq. Not the message I got from her. She just wants peace and no killing. She doesn’t want another family to go through the misery we both suffer daily in the loss of our sons. "

Yeah, Josh only took two posts before someone mocked a mother who lost her child! Kudos on your compassion!

Isn't "strictly anti-war" and "...just wants peace and no killing" pretty similar?

the mother is no peacenik - she's pissed off at the lies and falsehoods that cost her - her only son.

F'ing duh it's not a practical reality right now. That doesn't mean it's not a worthwhile goal.

It must be conforting to be so willfully ignorant.
