Soldier's Mom wants answers

Cindy Sheehan wants answers for the death of her son in Iraq. I feel for her loss, but she is taking it a bit far. If you take all the troops out of Iraq now as she wants, he son will not come back.
I have this to say to her:

Dear Cindy....first of all I want to say that I am very sorry for the loss of your son...you and your family will be in my prayers.
Now you were saying, "But he felt it was his duty to go, that his buddies were going, and that he had no choice." He did have a choice. Your son was a proud American who knew when duty calls you go, just like a police officer would go and do his duty, so did your son. War is never pretty, people die in war.
The noble cause that you do not see that your son died for is that after this war is over the people in Iraq will be free and maybe there will be a mother like you, who can finally cry out and ask why her son was killed. She can finally be angry, she can finally cry and why? Because of the Americans who believed in her right as a human being. Your son was one of them.
