Anti-War Movement Not Going Away

Editor:

While camped outside his Texas ranch, Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, has been a real thorn in President Bush's political side. She's now left Camp Casey and taken her anti-war campaign on the road. There are rallies planned in major U.S. cities culminating with a march on Washington, D.C.

The Bush people have tried in vain to discredit Cindy. The truth is, Bush could silence her in a heartbeat. All he needs to do is come up with a legitimate answer to her question: "What noble cause did my son Casey die for?"

Cindy will never get a straight answer from President Bush because "the intelligence was fixed to support the war." The war is all about money and power by controlling the world's energy resources. That objective is clearly written in the Project for the New American Century plan put together by Bush's cabal of neocons right after the 2000 election.

The war doesn't benefit you and me; it only benefits the power elites. All we get is to pay for it via our taxes and by sending our sons and daughters off to war.

There's a famous quote: "Wars are always fought for political reasons and behind them are economic interests. If the people knew what the real reasons were they would be unwilling to fight and die for those causes."

That's why Mr. Bush won't answer Cindy Sheehan's question. It's why the anti-war movement is not going away.
