(SOAPBOX #87) – Cindy Sheehan welcomes a most honored guest, Cindy Corrie.  (Note: That link goes to Part 1 of an interview with Rachel Corrie’s parents.  Part 2 is here.)  Both of these ladies suffered a mother’s worst nightmare: the loss of her precious child – to the forces of empireOur listeners here are all aware of the loss of Casey Sheehan in Iraq in 2005.  Cindy Corrie’s daughter, peace activist Rachel Corrie, was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer in 2003 as she tried to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home.  Motivated by her daughter’s work and sacrifice, Cindy Corrie has dedicated herself to the pursuit of justice and peace in the Middle East.  Today – for some reason – neither of these two are big fans of military empire – by anyone, at any time, under any name!  (Why can’t they just be reasonable and respectable patriots who accept that “KILLING = GLORY,” just as they’re taught?)  My goodness; you might think they were actually offended by the military killing their children!  What chutzpah!  You’d think they believed in the supreme value of a single human life!  How impractical:  Kill one single innocent civilian – and you’re guilty of murder.  Rack up 100,000 corpses or a few millions, and you’re a glorious hero, conducting foreign policy!  Evidently, the bigger the number of victims the more glorious your “victory.”  (Or is it really that the more publicity you get, the more glorious your “victory” becomes?)  Please use the link above, and listen in while these two bereaved mothers share what’s in their hearts and in their minds.
