kirstenanderberg BS: Cindy Sheehan: A Mother's Love (297* d) RE: BS: Cindy Sheehan: A Mother's Love 17 Aug 05

Yes, I have raised a child to adulthood. My son is 20 and will be 21 in Oct. He is my only son. I raised him all by myself. I talked to him about this just last night, and he said "hell yes you better break my legs to keep me from going if I try something that dumb!" Yes, I have a RIGHT to speak on this, as in a draft, which is impending as we cannot keep up with this war, MY SON GOES NEXT. And yes, if she LET her son go, she SENT him. AS I WOULD NOT LET THEM TAKE MY DRAFT AGE SON IN A DRAFT. SHE LET THEM TAKE HER SON NOT IN A DRAFT! She has no excuse!!! Would she let her son just be a free will sex offender or serial killer? Hell no! No difference here.

As I said, I would not physically allow my son to go. Period. I would immediately get a family intervention, I would break his freakin legs if I had to. I would physically harm my son's body to keep him from leaving to kill others, something he would regret later, or to come back dead himself, something I would regret later. If i had to kidnap him against his will to stop his export, I would risk my own jailing for that. I see that NOW BEFORE he is sent off and coming back dead. I did not need my son to come home DEAD to understand this war for god's sake!

You simply cannot be an antiwar protester and send your kids off as soldiers. You become a "military" family the minute you allow that to go down. There is a time to take a stand. And this is one of them. NO ONE IS TAKING MY SON OFF TO IRAQ for this ILLEGAL OCCUPATION. NO ONE. You will have to KILL ME FIRST. Thus if I live long enough to show up on GWBush's lawn in protest of my dead son, it will be because they TOOK my son AGAINST MY WILL AND JAILED ME TO KEEP ME FROM STOPPING HIM!

Also, my son and I have already had MACHINE GUNS aimed a foot from our heads in March 2003 in PERMITTED protest zones. I have SEEN US cops aim a machine gun at my kid, who was unarmed, was a teen, was in a permitted zone, doing nothing illegal or violent, and they aimed a machine gun less than a foot from his head and I was right there asking the military cops why he was physically threatening my son for free speech and we had snippers aimed at us, this was on March 22, 2003 and then we were corralled and cops beat people around us until their heads bled and we feared for our safety...we have already begun to street fight with US cops for our rights to protest this war in Seattle, so do not act like I am not backing up my words with action. I have also been interviewed on national radio shows about how to make a conscientious objector file for your sons now...before the draft comes. This is VERY serious to me. The US Military MAY NOT have my son for ILLEGAL occupations based on WMD LIES, plain and simple.
