    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.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    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.
