Step Up! Sheehan hangs up her helmet.


By Sarah Phelan


You can't blame antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan for hanging up her helmet, but what excuse do the rest of us have? Sheehan kept the memory of her son alive and didn't flinch from confronting the truth that her son died for a lie. With the bloodiest month since the US invaded Iraq coming to an end, it's time for the rest of us to debunk Bush's "war" myth. There were no WMDs. And there is no enemy, now Saddam is gone. Instead, we have an occupation, which can only end one way: when we leave. How many more American troops have to die for Bush's war lie? One more is one too many. Tell Congress that it's the decider, not Bush. Tell Congress to take back its power. Now.
