Johnny Cash disturbed about Iraq invasion before his death

From Raw Story

Rosanne Cash also claims that if it was not for his failing health, her father would have publicly denounced the 2003 Iraq invasion.

"We invaded Iraq in March, and he died in September. And because his health was so fragile, he couldn’t take the controversy of making a public statement against the war."

Rosanne Cash was attacked "mercilessly" after participating in Musicians United to Win Without War and says "[my father] knew that he couldn’t tolerate that."

Two weeks before the U.S. lead invasion, Johnny Cash was put into a medically induced coma.

"He went to sleep not knowing if we had invaded Iraq. It was the last thought on his mind. When he woke up, I was sitting by his side. He looked at me and reached over to pull the television over to him. He was looking at me like, 'Did it happen?' I said, 'Dad, it happened.' He went, 'No! No!' Can you imagine? This is the first thing he thought of when he woke up from a weeklong coma."
