The US media has launched a full-scale effort to suppress growing popular opposition to the war in Afghanistan, using one-sided propaganda about Taliban atrocities to conceal the murderous character of the American intervention. Beginning with the cover of Time magazine, showing a young woman mutilated by her Taliban husband, the media blitz now focuses on the killing of 10 medical aid workers Friday in the northeastern province of Badakhshan. Six of the ten were American citizens.

Simple question for you ConHunter. Would you rather the media back the effort, and help us win the conflict that we are in, and won't be leaving. Or would you rather we have a repeat of Vietnam, where they help turn the country against the war, we pull out, and all of the deaths and sacrifices have been for nothing at all?

Just a simple question honestly. Would you rather we win, or lose?

Of course we, the public, should want to win the war. But, the media isn't there to back the effort or to help win the conflict. The media's job is to present the facts and report what is happening so that the American public can decide what is to be done. A media that does anything you suggested is not an impartial nor free press.

We know it's not an impartial press, but I'm not saying we need to be printing propaganda either. Just getting the whole truth out there. 9 years now, the media has been doing nothing but slamming "Bush's War". I'm not naive enough to think that this sudden turn around has nothing to do with whose sitting in the office now, but I'll take it. Counterinsurgency requires more then just guns and boots on the ground to win.

Of course we also don't need a media like the one during Vietnam that calls soldiers baby killers and such. The press should leave that and calling it "Bush's war" or "Obama's War" to the pundits and editorialists.

Conhunter is also using the World Socialist website, which has a definite agenda. And we all know socialists would never use decepetion. :rolleyes:
