A Mother Questions why her son died
“We need to get our troops out of Iraq. The only reason Bush wants to stay there is because his buddies are getting rich and feasting off the blood of our children.”
Thus spoke Cindy Sheehan during an interview with Timesonline of London.
Contrary to some critics, Ms Sheehan is not an exception. The soldier from Gaithersburg, who returned from Iraq with debilitating injuries, and the mother from Vacaville whose son died there, are on the same wave length. More and more parents and returning soldiers are voicing their doubts and asking "Why did we go to Iraq".
