Pat Tillman + Cindy Sheehan = Peace?

No matter how much effort I and we of www.ImpeachforPeace.org put into holding the White House and other corrupt officials accountable, each and every veteran or active duty soldier has the authority in the public eye to have twice the effect I or any other 'justice through impeachment for peace' activists have regarding Peace and Justice issues around our military in half the time. As it should be. How powerful would the anti-war effort have become in a big hurry with Pat Tillman as the nexus along with Cindy Sheehan - bless her Gold Star heart? If only Pat Tillman hadn't been hit by enemy fire. I mean... If only Pat Tillman hadn't been hit by friendly fire in a firefight. I mean... If only Pat Tillman hadn't been hit by friendly fire in a firefight that we have found out didn't actually take place. I mean... If only someone hadn't put three bullets in Pat Tillman's head from approximately ten yards away (what at least one veteran sniper has written looked very much like a hit and two confirmation shots), he would have been able to keep the appointment with war critic and fellow intellectual Noam Chomsky that his mother has shared was his plan upon being discharged or upon his next leave/furlough (I don't know the lingo). Tillman was ready to come home and likely would have emerged as the most potent high profile war and Bush Administration critic as a veteran since... well... since John Kerry. Is a Court Martial movement the best means by which to pick up Tillman's weapon of words and action to support and defend the Constitution of the United States from domestic enemies to it? I am not the one to say, but if it is, who will be the one they themselves have been waiting for? The 'new' John Kerry won't even invoke the First Amendment to keep you from being tazed for asking the wrong questions, thus supporting with his inaction a student being proscribed for asking questions outside the prescribed parameters of a public hearing.
