The NYT did a recent piece wondering where all the hero's of the Iraq war are or perhaps, better said aren't? I won't go into detail about the historically propagandist NYT (after the bombs fell in Japan, they wilfully mislead the American public concerning the effects of radiation sickness - in effect saying no such thing existed). If you want more on the NYT piece and a truly great analysis read PM Carpenter's article here.Truly, nothing more needs to be said about the NYT and especially their absurd article. PM put that idiocy to bed with his analysis of their flawed analysis. As for heroes well, there is one very courageous hero emerging out of the quagmire that is Bush's war constructed completely on a pack of lies. This hero however, isn't fighting in Iraq and for all I know has never even flown over, let alone been to Iraq. In a nation where corporate news does all it can to pass along the Bushevik lies piled one atop the other, and does even more to spin the Emperor's arrogance into something akin to conviction or even courage, the one true hero of the Iraq War, stands solitary and conspicuous like a lone star in a murky black sky.Stacked against this hero is the entire weight of an incredibly corrupt, lying and criminal United States Government, a mountain of wealthy corporate -- think Halliburton, Exxon and Shell -- supporters and a propagandized and extremist Right-Wing media who as I write have their pack of hungry lying wolves poised to dissect every word, thought and breath of the lone Iraq War hero. Yet, the hero stands defiant in the eye of the perfect political storm that swirls around her every moment.How bad are things for our one true hero? Well, Karl Rove and George "W"idow-Maker Bush have all ready started spinning lies about not only her words, but her emotional state at the time the words were uttered. As if that weren't bad enough, Rove and "W"idow-Maker are now, threatening to have the hero tossed in prison for of all the absurd things, being a threat to national Security. Just who is this one true hero that has put so much fear into the hearts of a vast Right-Wing lying, torturing, mafia like Bush administration? Who is it that threatens their all powerful, omnipotent and God-like powers, so much that they are considering throwing her in jail? She is a mother. One, little, itty-bitty mother of one dead Iraq War soldier and because she dares not goose-step along with the Bushevik lies...because she attempts to speak truth to power this mother -- Cindy Sheehan -- not only stands a chance of being tossed into prison, but has become the only real hero produced by the Iraq War.
