There seems to be a dearth of information about the Global War on Terrorism these days. The Battle of Iraq is not being reported on. With so little news coming out of Iraq, its time to go looking to see what news we can find. Read about it below and see photos and a video.
During the most deadly periods of the Battle of Iraq it was on the news every night. My son happened to be doing a tour of duty there, in one of the deadliest areas of Baghdad, during that period of time. He was there for fifteen months and so I paid obsessive attention to what was on the news and what was happening there. That’s when I started understanding on a very personal level the discrepancy between what was reported on the American news and what was actually happening.
What I hated most was the body counts. There were nightly body counts that seemed to be done with glee thinly masked with feigned concern. You see, the point was, it was proof for the left that ‘Bush’s War’ was not working. The left had managed to undermine and lose the war in Vietnam that way. Now they were using the same methods to undermine our troops and lose this war.
One would think that the left wanted America to lose this war. I suppose if you asked them, they’d say that of course they don’t want America to lose a war. But losing the war is a way for them to get power. If they can convince the public that this is a war waged by Bush for personal gain and that it is without cause, then it increases their changes of regaining the White House and power. If that means losing the war, well, I guess that’s what it means. You know, kinda like convincing people that the economy is going down the toilet or doing whatever they can to cause banks to fail. Economic bad times generally means the party that is not in power will win. Its all about politics and its all about power. To hell with the best interest of the country, much less the people.
Which explains the lack of news reports on Iraq. No bad news equals no news.
