The face of the anti-war movement for the last couple of years has finally realized that when you play outside the two-party system, nobody wants you around. Hey — welcome to my world!
Sheehan has discovered that the Democrats at the national level really don’t want the Iraq War to end. Their big-money supporters have far too much invested over there to quit now. Besides, after spending billions to build over a dozen new military “superbases” and an embassy the size of the Vatican, the U.S. is not bringing soldiers home even if the fighting stops.
Anti-war protesters need to wake up like Sheehan did. The two major parties are in this together regardless of what their mouthpieces say on TV.
