"We are the dead. If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep." End the Wars.

In Flanders Fields (by John McCrae)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.


If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Cindy Sheehan's son Casey died in the U.S. War Against Iraq. That war was based upon lies. The Bush-Cheney regime told the American public that Iraq had attacked the U.S. on 9/11, and Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction which it was preparing to unleash against our country, either directly or through some deal with al Queda.

To support this completely fabricated story, the Bush-Cheney regime simply made up "evidence" whole cloth. They invented secret meetings in Germany between alleged al Queda terrorists and Iraq government representatives. They invented some secret "tubes" which supposedly had nuclear weapon components inside. They invented the traveling railway system, an absurd claim they sold to the U.N., showing boxcars supposedly being moved from one spot to the next to hide the WMD.

Cindy Sheehan's son died in the U.S. War Against Iraq. He did not know of the fraud, or the greed, or the insanity, or the lies of the Bush-Cheney regime. He thought he was protecting his country.

But now his mother knows. And she keeps fighting to end this war. So that other mothers don't have to suffer like she has. And maybe to get a little justice for her son, Casey.
