Two Whose Children Were Consumed by War

  • Gareth Porter reviews the new book by Andrew Bacevich, "a former army officer, a Catholic, and a social conservative from the Midwest, [who] he has appealed to both conservatives and progressives unhappy with the militarized pursuit of power abroad and the encouragement of unlimited individual self-gratification at home" — Dissecting the Perpetual War Machine.

  • "Would America look much different if Republican John McCain had beaten Democrat Barack Obama to become president?" asks Cindy Sheehan (short answer, "No") — US: myth of the two party system. She does concede one difference: "If McCain were president, there would be an active 'anti-war' movement. However - as during the Bush years - the 'movement' wouldn’t be so much antiwar, but anti-war waged by the Republicans." Hear the "Peace Mom" speak — Scott Horton Interviews Cindy Sheehan.
