It’s unlikely that Dallas celeb George W. Bush will ever face prosecution for war crimes – in this country, anyway. But while most Americans move forward from the misery that Dubya’s Old Testament-inspired Iraq Crusade has wrought, some who lost loved ones in the war are, understandably, still having a very hard time.
The Dallas Peace Center has announced that activist Cindy Sheehan is coming to Dallas to lead a peaceful (natch) June 8 protest of the Bush Administration’s “Crimes Against Humanity.” The short march will end outside the ex-president’s gated compound on Daria Dr.
Let’s hope Sheehan herself can find some peace and, if she wants it, a productive future stumping for social justice issues. Let’s also hope she’s not hung up on the expectation that Bush will ever offer any contrition for his awful decisions. He has placed his own warped brand of Christian faith where his conscience should be.
