    Flipping through the channels the other night when I caught someone talking about an Al Jezera english speaking station. Did I hear this right? and if I did, where is it going to air? here?

    Then you got to ask yourself who is going to watch it? Imo, alot of people, and I mean millions and millions of people here in the US. People will watch for all kinds of reasons, from looking for lies and flaws, to conspiracy theorists who will eat this shit up. Sponsors will be lining up around the block until someone starts a boycott, then the sponsors will back off seaming to be American until everything dies down and then they will go back. I would watch just to see what the other side has to say out of there own mouths instead of Glenn Beck, Fox, CNN, and MSNBC interpeting it for me.

    so what do you think, is Al Jezera a good idea here in the US?

    Al Jazera English is a web site. They do some streaming of their broadcast.

    I already use their english website as one of my sources for middle east news. I like seeing how their opinions shade their coverage of events in comparison to how our liberal old media and conservative FOX news' opinions shade it.


    I tell you one thing us getting inolved in libya is going to come back to bite us in the butt. It will not make us look good in the end at all.

    not to mention we are already in 2 wars and a financial crisis so we can't afford to get involved in this 3rd war.

    We're doing a service to the Islamic movement in the Middle East.

    Any dictator has two choices. Stay around and shoot their people when they get out of line, then draw NATO into the fight, or leave now and allow a theocracy to form in their place isolating Israel even more.

    shoot your tv if you come across that channel.

    if you watch for more than 10 seconds, you will be lost.
