    Anything to keep her 15 minutes going.

    -------

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cindy Sheehan, the military mother who made her son's death in Iraq a rallying point for the anti-war movement, plans to tie herself to the White House fence to protest the milestone of 2,000 U.S. military deaths in Iraq.

    "I'm going to go to Washington, D.C. and I'm going to give a speech at the White House, and after I do, I'm going to tie myself to the fence and refuse to leave until they agree to bring our troops home," Sheehan said in a telephone interview last week as the milestone approached.

    "And I'll probably get arrested, and when I get out, I'll go back and do the same thing," she said.

    The death toll among U.S. military forces since the March 2003 invasion stood at 1,996 on Sunday.

    The milestone's approach prompted plans for hundreds of other demonstrations across the United States, but for Sheehan, each military death in the Iraqi war has been a tragedy.

    "To me, every single member since Number One has been tragic and needless and unnecessary," she said. "My son was somewhere around 615, and I've been working so hard for peace since my son was killed and now almost 1,400 more soldiers have been killed since Casey died."

    Army Specialist Casey Sheehan was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004.

    Beyond Sheehan's plans, a candlelight vigil is planned at the White House to mourn the 2,000-death milestone. Hundreds of other demonstrations are scheduled for the day after the milestone number is reached.

    "I hope that this milestone marks the point when the American people realize the U.S. military is not going to stop the violence in Iraq, and they instead start demanding a political solution to this problem," Sean O'Neill, a U.S. Marine who served in Iraq, said in a statement.

    'HUMAN COST OF A LIE'

    The American Friends Service Committee was helping coordinate activists to protest the Iraq war.

    "On the day after the 2,000th reported U.S. military death in Iraq, people will gather in communities across the U.S. to say that the countries pro-peace majority wants Congress to stop the deaths by stopping the dollars that are funding the war," a coalition of anti-war groups said online at www.afsc.org.

    I suggest that the President just leave her tied up to the white house fence and go to Crawford Tx for a few months. He can run the country from there just as easily and she will get what she wanted.

    I wonder how long she would actually stay there if they just left her tied up. That might actually provide some amusement. We could start a pool, take bets, all sorts of fun.

    I'm hoping the next headline we see is:

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Because Cindy Sheehan is crazy, the White House announced today the installation of an electric fence. The fence would be strong enough to kill small animals, and mame adults.

    Ok, she wants to do another big publicity stunt for the anti-war movement........fine and dandy.

    I think it would be a "hoot" if nobody cared :cry: , no photogs showed up, and folks just walked by and no crowds gathered. She would end up feeling like a fool :cry: .

    Another thought: When Cindy has to "relieve" herself, does she untie herself and leave a sign on the fence that says, "Will be back in one hour; On Break :coffee3: ." lol

    Also, how does she bath herself. A person could pretty "ripe :eek: " without a bath or shower after a few days.

    I remember those lunatic enviro wackos up in the Northwest Calif, that lived up in Redwood trees so that the hard working loggers couldn't cut down the trees for lumber. Those folks must have gotten pretty potent/ripe :eek: if you were down-wind. lol :eek:
