GOP Bloggers has this..Where are those Human shields???
A great post. They were all for protecting the Iraqis from our bombs, but where are they to shield them from the insurgents??? I hardly ever post whole quotes….but this is worthy.
Where are the human shields now?

Here we are on the doorstep of history and insurgents want to kill those exercising their God-given rights to be free. I'm curious where those so-called courageous human shields are hiding. Afterall, this is what their website says about their mission:
"On the 25th of January, 2003 thirty human shield volunteers and three double-decker buses left London to pick up other volunteers throughout Europe on their way to Iraq. At their peak in Iraq they numbered close to 700... when Iraq was invaded human shield volunteers would place themselves at strategic sites critical to the well-being of Iraqi civilians in order to make the bombing of these sites politically untenable."
So I ask, why aren't you folks at the Iraqi polling places today?
Because it never really was about the "well-being of the Iraqi civilians" was it? There is no America-bashing to be gained by placing yourselves at "strategic sites" today is there? There is only danger... the danger each and every Iraqi citizen is going to face if they wish to cast a ballot.
I'm sure the Iraqis thank you for your valiant attempts at trying to prevent today from ever happening. Perhaps you should return to ask them about it.
