    Cindy Sheehan demands invasion

    Cindy Sheehan Calls For Invasion of Syria

    Cindy Sheehan called for the United States to invade Syria today and halt what she termed a "humanitarian catastrophe."

    In an interview with the Washington Standard, the notorious Iraq War opponent argued that the international community could no longer sit idly by and let the civilian death toll in that country's civil war climb any higher.

    Her bold declaration comes one day after the U.S. said it believed the Syrian government under dictator Bashar Al-Assad had used chemical weapons against its own people, a "red line" which Obama had previously indicated would trigger increased American intervention.

    "According to the United Nations over 70,000 people have already been killed in this civil war," Sheehan explained. "Innocent women and children have had their lives stolen from them. Families have been destroyed. Many more have been displaced.

    "A well-planned invasion using precision air strikes and special forces could save thousands of Syrian lives. What are we waiting for? Why won't Obama act?
