Antony Loewenstein reports from Cindy Central:
Last night in Sydney was windy, rainy and cold, but an anti-war event featuring Cindy Sheehan and Dr Salam Ismael made one forget the wintry conditions outside.
Most people usually forget conditions outside once they’re, you know, inside. Ant requires a calming visit from Peace Mommy.
Around 500 people gathered to hear two impassionate speakers discuss the monumentally disastrous Iraq invasion and occupation and offer a way forward.
The Iraq war has never been more unpopular and delusions have never been greater. Working towards, and advocating, “Coalition” defeat has been achieved.
And what a grand achievement! I wonder if Sheehan knows that Antony advocated the killing of her son.
The next step is finding a prosperous Iraqi future without Western interference.
Which wouldn’t be possible were it not for the Western interference that removed Saddam.
Dr Salam Ismael was equally impressive.
Equal to who, or what?
He reminded the audience that Westerners are not being told the real picture of life under US occupation, the daily torture, bombings and kidnappings.
Yep. We’re only getting the good news. Nothing but progress reported every day.
Both Sheehan and Ismael demanded the complete withdrawal of “Coalition” troops from Iraq. They were both asked whether the security situation would worsen and Ismael responded: “how could it be any worse than now? Iraqis should sort out our own country.”
One way it might be worse: Iraq could still be a dictatorship funding suicide bombers in Israel, among other crimes. More Cindy Capers to follow.
