Why is the American anti-war activist ending her involvement?

Cindy Sheehan is an American anti-war activist, whose son, Casey Sheehan,was killed during his service  in the  Iraq War on April 4, 2004, aged 24.

She has attracted international attention in August  2005 for her extended demonstration at a peace camp outside President George W.Bush’s Texas ranch garnering her both support and criticism.Now she explains in her diary in Daily Kos  why she is resigning from the “face” of the American war movement.A sad read from a diary of a mother who feels her son died for nothing.

    Don’t be hypocrite. Why aren’t you talking about Ethiopian mothers who are mourning in the loss of their sons mercilessly killed by woyane army instead of talking about an American mother?

    Good decisions! It was a serious cause, but somehow, she lost track of what’s the issue all about. She put out a very bad image of hereself.

    First, she did not quit. She said she is taking a much needed time off. Second Juru, how is it that she lost track of the issue? Can you explain? Personally, we owe her a great deal of gratitude for her tireless work until now.

    Chereka,
    Simply, she ain’t Jane Fonda. Hope, this explains.

    Interesting comparison Juru and I am not sure how to interpret it. Not to belittle her contribution, but I don’t remember Jane Fonda losing a son in Vietnam. Also, Cindy Sheehan did not get half the media attention Jane Fonda got when she started her campaign. So, I might take Sheehan moreseriously than Jane Fonda.
