Code Pink Has No Shame

In his My Word column of 08/25/2005, John Gibson of Fox News weighs in on the Code Pink sheehanigans outside of Walter Reed. He takes them to task for their classless and distastful "vigil" for the soldiers. Un-patriotic isn't too strong a term either, in my opinion. Says Gibson:

This is tantamount to spitting on soldiers when they returned home from Vietnam. It is the rough equivalent of calling soldiers baby killers. Code Pink has absolutely no shame in staging this protest. Protest in Crawford, Texas; protest at the White House; protest at Congress; protest in front of any organization which you think was part of the decision to go to war, but cut the injured soldiers some slack.

I don't find it hard to believe that some of today's anti-war protesters participated in spitting on soldiers back in the Vietnam era. He goes on:

Maimed for lies? I was doing Tony Snow's radio show Thursday and one soldier about to go back to Iraq said these protestors are America’s IEDs, roadside bombs set to go off and injure a soldier here just as certainly as IEDs in Baghdad are set to go off and blow off a soldier’s leg over there.

That is Code Pink's goal in a nutshell. They, and the other marxist rabble involved in the protests, want to kill the morale of the soldiers and the public and they don't care who they have to hurt to do it.
