    Its seems to me that there has been a clear effort on the part of the media to deflect the attention of the American people away from the issues affecting our lives.

    From video games to reality shows there have always been ways in which to keep the public occupied while the powers that be did their dastardly deeds.

    This time though its just so apparent its almost transparent. How do you turn the heads of the whole world?

    You focus on the worlds favorite whooping boys, rich black entertainers (Dont go jumping to conclusions now).

    As the heat has gradually risen and attention has increased and speculation as for the Bush administrations shady dealings in Iraq has dominated daily pillow and watercooler talk. The media has decided that the public has had enough.

    They are systematically cutting us off, as if the casualties have ended, as if the wounded haven't entered into the thousands. Is the fear that the people will revolt, as they did in Georgia?

    Is this an attack on the American people? or are the actions of Kobe, Michael, and the pro player of the week so comepelling that no other information can cross the airwaves between the hours of 3 and 10pm?

    I'm no conspiracy theorist but this mass exodus from the search for the truth is so clear its scary.

    btw dont want to forget Scott Peterson.

    unfortunately, mass media is fueled by ratings, and the higher the ratings, the more a newspaper, television network, radio station ect. ect. can charge advertisers. besides this, americans seem to enjoy watching other peoples troubles being splattered across the airwaves and newspapers. it makes people think that maybe their lives are not that bad. also, people get tired of seeing war and death after awhile.

    Yeah but it is popular, probably for the reasons green lantern stated, that makes it powerful. It is allways easier to sway a hundred men by validating their fears than it is to sway one by appealing to his reason.
    Happy Thanksgiving guys.

    I suspect that you would like a return to the good old days of Vietnam when the world and America got a daily American body bag count fueling the protestors who ultimately led to turning tail and running leaving our dead to have died in vain.

    That 'truth' that you so much desire and support is best left to be examined in a historical perspective rather than giving the enemy aid and comfort. Not enough of the benefits of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have been reported in the main media as that would poorly serve the opposition's political purpose.

    Today the US President had Thanksgiving lunch in Iraq, I suspect more for moral building than political benefits. So many give so little credit to the strength and understanding of the citizens of the United States in a time when we are threatened by a virulent enemy of mankind.

    There is a report today on some news media that the word has gone out to the Muslim population that it times to leave our shores to avoid the coming attack on America.

    Too bad that the Muslim population in the US don't take heed of this warning from the Islamic terrorist umbrella organization and leave our shores. America would be free of all potential enemies while leaving our security Intel to root out those who evil design and whose supposed intent is to come against the USA.

    Your lack of any search for tactical 'truth' is not scary but a necessity of war.

    I'm sure that the information gleamed from the pentagon papers had NOTHING to do with any of it, right? Lest you forget that the pursuit of the war in vietnam had WAY less to do with stopping the spread of communism as it did with providing the CIA with their company objectives. If THATS not leaving our dead to have died in vain then I don't know what is. As they say, 'communism' was just a red herring.



    In case you have also forgotten about the push for the iraq war with Bush 41, the 'intelligence' used, I would call it disinformation propaganda, concerning a mounting invasion force for saudi and the so called 'incubator killers' story was a ruse. So our government policies have been shown to have nefarious purposes underneath them as well and i'm sure that those in power would like to have MORE of you cheerleaders asking to not hear about anything until AFTER the fact, when its just too damn late to do anything about the improprieties of their actions.

    As much as you want to call it giving the enemy aid and comfort, it is just as much, if not more, of keeping our government body honest, honorable, and open. damn the national security shit when its also MY honor that we're talking about.

    The Vietnam War may have been a war created for special interests while the American men died in their thousands for nothing more than old men starting wars and young men dying in them. What war is a righteous war except except those fought iin defense of our shores? John Kennedy had about 16,000 soldier advisors in Vietnam but after he was assassinated, mysteriously his predecessor, Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson began to send thousands of men to Vietnam and make many rich. Our boys still died in vain when America could have finished that war in several weeks if they had been given the go-ahead and allowed the generals to prosecute this unjust war.

    "In case you have also forgotten about the push for the iraq war with Bush 41, the 'intelligence' used, I would call it disinformation propaganda, concerning a mounting invasion force for saudi and the so called 'incubator killers' story was a ruse.

    You make many allegations about Bush 41 and 'disinformation', propaganda' and ruses. Can you produce any evidence that would back up these alleged conspiratorial and a lying president Bush? (like the Pentagon papers). Otherwise your personal opinions are nothing more than that void which fills your cranium.

    It is a curious fact that history always demonstrates the facts of any events or Presidential actions. Your knee-jerk accusations are usually not worth anything more than to bash your country.


    "As much as you want to call it giving the enemy aid and comfort, it is just as much, if not more, of keeping our government body honest, honorable, and open. damn the national security shit when it’s also MY honor that we're talking about."

    Your honor is worth more than the security of more than 200,000,000 democratic citizens? Methinks you think much too much of yourself and your fecal honor.

    If you don’t like it in this country, pack your rags and go to Iran where your honor will be a big factor with the Muslims. You might even get 70 Arab virgins

    you give us way too much credit if you think the people protesting vietnam was in any way responsible for dragging the 'police action' on for years. Again, don't forget that we were in indochina YEARS before it became widely known.

    There was a convenient 'marketing' firm that accepted culpability for the above 'disinformation' and subsequently no investigation was really allowed to proceed as to how much the administration knew or endorsed. As Truman stated 'the buck stops here'.

    yeah, I'm my own little think tank and obviously came up with all that shit on my own.

    Honor SHOULD be everything to a man except to those that have none. I'll commit murder with a smile, but I won't lie about it so yes, my honor is worth more to me BECAUSE the security of 200 million people mean something to me.

    Now, is there a reason why you feel the need to insult and attempt to deman and debase anyone whos opinions and statements don't agree with your's because thats all I've ever seen come out of your posts. Its extremely indicative of a small mind and an inability to cope when your points are laid bare as nothing more than baseless opinion not backed up by anything.

    Happy Thanksgiving DK, just a suggestion, and I've found this effective. When he insults you, give him one of these.
    :baby:
    Add one each time he insults you. Pretty soon he will call you a muslem and say it is useless talking to you.
    Appreciate you not sinking to that level, always enjoy your posts.

    "you give us way too much credit if you think the people protesting vietnam was in any way responsible for dragging the 'police action' on for years. Again, don't forget that we were in indochina YEARS before it became widely known."

    Read my post again for I never intimated that American protestors were in any way responsible for 'dragging out' the Vietnam War. To the contrary, they were partially responsible for Nixon's running away leaving the people of South Vietnam to the tender mercies of Ho Chi. All I ever said about the protestors was that they used their constitutional rights of freedom of speech to march and riot in a 'free country' in which they chose to bash. If any group in either North or South Vietnam chose to protest in the streets, do you think that they would have been allowed to live for more than a few minutes?

    Again, I never denied that America had a small advisory military presence for some years in Vietnam until the mysterious assassination of the president who had verbalized his desire to end the war.

    Convenient 'marketing firm' that accepted culpability for lying or misinforming the American public? This is news to me and many others. Again, do you have either a name of such a 'firm' or actual proof of such a 'firm' or is that just another left wing main media conspiracy theory? Was this convenient firm admission 'fact' publicly admitted by anyone we know?

    "yeah, I'm my own little think tank and obviously came up with all that shit on my own."

    Yes you apparently have a great personal 'thunk' tank and can seem to produce no proof of your allegations or smoke-pipe dream accusations. Where's the beef?

    "Honor SHOULD be everything to a man except to those that have none. I'll commit murder with a smile, but I won't lie about it so yes, my honor is worth more to me BECAUSE the security of 200 million people mean something to me."

    Your self 'honor' is worth more than your fellow citizens? You are one of those citizens who are in peril but that has little meaning when it comes to your own self-serving honor. What you consider a lie about the murder of killers is certainly an honor to you. What a moral quagmire to which you have placed yourself when American men and women have died to destroy those who are known to have tortured and murdered countless men, women and children.



    "Now, is there a reason why you feel the need to insult and attempt to deman and debase anyone whos opinions and statements don't agree with your's because thats all I've ever seen come out of your posts.

    It seems that you interpret my posts that are in disagreement with yours as attempts to demean and debase your opinions and statements that don't agree with a significant portion of Americans including myself. Your attempt to demean me by invectives of my small mind and an inability to cope with your opinion exposes your own feelings of inferiority.



    Have you decided to exit the country in which your own honor means more than your life or the lives of the people of this free country who do wish to survive?
