You have seen it. We have all seen it. Worst of all, the families of the heroic soldiers killed, have seen it.
"It," is a video montage of American military vehicle after American military vehicle, getting blown up in Iraq by Improvised Explosive Devices, or IED's. Some of our television "news" networks will show one or two vehicles getting blown to bits, while others will ghoulishly show ten or more American military vehicles in a row, getting decimated by explosives hidden in the roads by cowardly terrorists.
More often than not, our very networks will use this footage as a propaganda tool to demonstrate to the American people that "Bush's war" in Iraq is a failure. Yes, we have all seen these horrible images, but did you ever ask yourself where the video came from? Have the left-of-center network executives determined to carry water for the anti-war movement, ever really wondered how they obtained such poisonous video?
Shockingly and almost traitorously, while most Americans don't know the origin of these videos, the networks executives who cravenly exploit the deaths and maiming of our young soldiers, know exactly where the tapes come from.
Another case of killing the messenger. There's no dispute that what the networks show is the truth, only that it's somehow objectionable. Maybe what's REALLY objectionable isn't that the networks are showing our troops dying, but that they are dying needlessly and pointlessly in a war that the American people no longer support and which is being maintained for the profit of people like Dick Cheney and for the messianic obsessions of people like George Bush.
If what you see offends you, remember who is really to blame.
