Cindy & Hugo: Perfect Together!

I cried with joy when I learned that Venezuela's President Chavez and Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan joined to attack President George W. Bush and the Iraq War at the close of the World Social Forum.

The quotes are wondrous!

"Enough of imperialist aggression. We must tell the world, down with the U.S. empire," Chavez said hugging Sheehan, whose son died in the Iraq war.

"We have to bury imperialism this century. Cindy, we are with you in your fight," he said on his regular Sunday television broadcast.

"The war in Iraq will end, our troops will come home, Bush will be impeached and he will be brought to justice," said Sheehan, who held a vigil outside Bush's Texas ranch.

Truly, I am at a loss for words.

So instead, let's review some legendary Hugo and Cindy quotes that have earned them so much respect.


"Minorities, descendants of those who crucified Christ... have grabbed all the wealth of the world for themselves."

"Capitalism leads us straight to hell."

"Socialism builds and capitalism destroys."


[An excellent source of Cindy's wisdom and compassion is at The People's Cube, from where the first three excerpts were taken.]

"America has been killing people on this continent since it was started. This country is not worth dying for."

"You get America out of Iraq, you get Israel out of Palestine."

"We are waging a nuclear war in Iraq right now. That country is contaminated. It will be contaminated for practically eternity now."

"We are not waging a war on terror in this country. We're waging a war of terror. The biggest terrorist in the world is George W. Bush."

"By his own definition, he is a terrorist."

That last two quoted give me such an adrenaline boost. Yes, George W. Bush is the world's biggest terrorist! His fascist armies rape and murder civilians, his air force wantonly drops bombs on unsuspecting nations, and his insane right-wing Christianity is being forced down the throats of the world's citizens with the shout, "Christianity or Death!" as the heads are sawed off unbelievers, the bullets fly into their bodies, and their buildings are bombed into rubble.

Thank you Cindy, and thank you Hugo, for giving us hope for a sane future.

...reminds me of a schooling behavior study conducted with decerebrated fish in the experimental group (can't cite it but I read it back in the early '80's.)

All of the fish seemed to follow the fish without the brain. The more erratic the brainless fish became, the greater the schooling behavior was stimulated.

There is a correlary in here somewhere--"...and those who can't think become leaders for leftist sycophants"?

I beleive it is an answer to Ms. Sheehan that she is ignoring. There are those in this GREAT contry who will give her the time of day, but because that number is so small she finds it neccesary to associate herself with the table guest of Castro!!!
