Quote Of The Day - Cindy Sheehan

"Joining the US military should never be an option for the socially conscious while our troops are being used as corporate tools for profit, or hired assassins for imperial expansion. Soldiers are called: 'Bullet sponges,' by their superiors and "dumb animals" by Henry Kissinger, the former secretary of state.

"While soldiers are dehumanised and treated like dirt, they are taught to dehumanise 'the other', and treat them as less than dirt. It is a vicious cycle, and the way to stop a vicious cycle is to denounce and reject it, not openly participate.

"I want to bang my head against a wall when another young gay person commits suicide as a result despicable bullying, yet people within the same community have fought hard for the right to openly join the biggest bully ever! Don’t go, don’t kill!" - Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan.
