I find this so hard to believe and its infuriating! Why is the US helping this propaganda war. The points made in this article are so true. Why would anyone believe the US coalition when they spit out sensational news that are only refuted or proven wrong afterwards. Everyone knows about the mistakes of:
*Scuds flying towards Kuwait
*Chemical WoMD factories found
*Mass Surrenders and defections
*A few day war.
How are anyone going to believe the
*Iraqi civilians being fired upon by Paramilitary
*Iraqi’s own missile hitting civilian areas
*The downfall of Baghdad.
Why are we allowing State sponsored propaganda to continue in Iraq? We should bomb every radio and TV transmitter being used by the regime. Shut them up and let the people decide why they arent talking now. Everytime the Iraqi people hears an official broadcast, it just reinforces the idea that Saddam is still in power.
Who the hell is spouting these unconfirmed, unsubstantiated unreliable newsflash only to be shot down by Al Jezeera and the rest of the Arab news service?! They make the US look like fools and we’re letting it happen over and over. Any embedded news service that transmit bullshit information should be taken out of where they are embedded and and made to telecast the war from the States. These people are supposed to be JOURNALISTS! they should verify and confirm before they say anything on the air. and so should Rumsfeld, the Joint chiefs of staff and the rest of the military commanders.
There should be frontline videomen, taking action and intelligence information and sending them back for analysis and anything that can be confirmed should be shown on the news. There should be a military information management that handles this. This may be called official propaganda but if you stick a video of an Iraqi paramilitary soldier shooting iraqi civilians in the news, this war will have very few detractors.
