Am I supposed to by sympathetic?: One of the useful idiots, aka human shields, who went to Iraq is now being fined "at least $10,000."
Retired schoolteacher Faith Fippinger is, of course, refusing.
In her response to the charges, she wrote the government that "if it comes to fines or imprisonment, "please be aware that I will not contribute money to the United States government to continue the buildup of its arsenal of weapons." Since she won't pay, she said, "perhaps the alternative should be considered."
The alternative is 12 years in prison.
Oh, and if your curious, was this "human shield" protecting an orphanage? A hospital? A school?
An oil refinery.
She knew she'd be safe. After all, the war was all about getting oil.
