CNN: Americans And Terrorist The Same

Published by at 1:18 pm under All General Discussions

Rick Moran has a real jawdropper of a post on CNN’s determination that Americans and Terrorists are equivalent. I guess it is OK now to do the Nick Berg treatment on Muslims we round up…..

    So let’s show Americans jumping out of buildings after those same good guys drove air planes into them. Or show how brave our American Soldiers are killing the brutal enemy by sniper fire. Or our soldiers giving away thousands of toys to the children of Iraq. Every day I can read on the internet of the wonderful things we are doing for the Iraqi people but not one story in the news media. It makes me sick–I can see no value to see the same enemy who killed Americans kill our soldiers.

    Are you certain that the same kids receiving gifts are not
    returning to homes who hate occupiers in spite of the gifts,
    even in some cases with information about the givers, on
    parents’ orders?

    Are the snipers al Qaeda or independent Iraqi nationalists?
    It makes a difference, one which AJ might prefer to stay blurred.
    The native Sunni (and scattered Shia) nationalists are not
    “those same good guys.”

  3. kathie says:

    Ken our soldiers are in Iraq at the invitation of the elected Iraqi government. Snipers are law brakers and in defiance of the stated goals of the elected Iraqi government. They are not in uniform and are the same mind set as those who flew planes into our buildings.

  4. Ken says:

    Sorry, Kathie but Bush himself nullified the election. He said,
    on demanding Syria leave Lebanon two years ago, no free
    election can take place under an occupying power.

    Iraqis seem to agree. Few have any faith left in the current
    government, though I realize it is all you neocons have to
    cling to. 64% of Iraqis also approve of attacks on US troops.
    You’re living in a political dream world.

  5. The Macker says:

    The MSM doesn’t report on the enemy, it is the enemy.

    Ken is reminiscent of those that championed the Viet Cong during the Viet Nam War. Using the word “nationalist” to describe terrorists trying to abort an infant democracy that was freely elected is a favorite propoganda technique of the Left.

    No they did not. I saw that poll. And as usual you are wrong.

    61% said that they would support attacks on troops if they felt the Americans were not going to leave. When asked if they supported attacks on troops if they believed we would were not planning to make the occupation permanent the number fell by 38%. I wonder where they got the idea that the US is not sincere? Could it be from the anti war movement and their incessant bitching? I wonder how many soldiers people like you helped kill?

    However, virtually no one wanted us to leave right now. About 53% wanted us to leave in a year and about 47% wanted us to begin to leave in 6 months, if possible. They did want us to stay and continue to train their own military and to remain to do civilian work as well. 94% did not support AlQaida, only 30% supported the militias and the majority of the Iraqi people, about two thirds supported their Prime Minister and had a positive opinion of their government. Of course if it were not for the US that government would not exist.

    I know you hate your country and long to see it defeated, but do not assume that the Iraqi people want to live under a dictatorship just to make you happy. Do not assume they support the militias or the terrorists who make their lives so much more difficult.

    Speaking of CNN:

    SAN DIEGO The chair of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon today to remove C-N-N reporters embedded with U-S combat units.
    The network televised portions of a video on Wednesday showing insurgent snipers targeting U-S military personnel.

    Executives said the tape came to the network unexpectedly through contact with an insurgent leader.

    Representative Duncan Hunter wrote in his letter that, quote, “C-N-N has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier.”

    San Diego-area Republicans Darrell Issa and Brian Bilbray also signed the letter.

    C-N-N executives defended their decision to air the footage, saying its news value outweighed other concerns.

  8. Terrye says:

    Oh and Ken the UN and every other international organization has said that the Iraqi election you have no respect for was valid and I really don’t think millions of Iraqis would risk their lives to vote in an election if it did not mean something to them. That is what counts, what you think of it does not really matter.

    Sorry, Kathie but Bush himself nullified the election. He said,

    election can take place under an occupying power.

    The US has been in Iraq for over 20 years, just like Syria has been in Lebanon?

    They do consider both sides the same and so do the clients they represent. AJ’s earlier post ‘What Media Bias’ linking to http://www.investors.com/editorial/editorialcontent.asp?secid=1501&status=article&id=246150694225203
    should open any unbeliever’s eyes and put it to bed. Here is the tip of the iceberg they named……

    Chris Matthews (NBC)–Jimmy Carter speechwriter, top aide House Speaker Tip O’Neill
    Tim Russert (NBC)–political advisor Sen P Moynihan and Gov Mario Cuomo
    Jeff Greenfield (ABC)–speechwriter for Sen R Kennedy
    Bill Moyers (PBS)–Lyndon Johnson’s press secretary
    George Stephanopoulos (ABC)–Clinton strategist, communications director
    Tom Johnson (former CNN president)–special asst. to President Johnson
    Lesley Stahl (CBS)–Mayor John Lindsay
    Dotty Lynch (CBS opinion)–DNC’s polling director ’81-82
    David Burke (former CBS president)–Ted Kennedy chief of staff/strategy advisor
    Delano Lewis (former NPR president)–chief fundraiser Marion Barry

    These people Making and Deleting 86% of the news are Democrats. That simple. The reason I will not quit beating that old tired drum. We can not even fight a war because of them. Their clients (DNC) want the UN and ICC to control ALL our laws as the ultimate authority.

    For any unbelievers………Many of these Dem Congressmen have been in office for years……..It was a Dem controlled Senate that passed the war resolution. It is the DNC controlled MSM that not only has erased that fact, but wrote a new version that those poor, innocent babes were mislead by that nasty ole Bush. It’s magic……it’s a miracle.

    They published this hateful anti-American vile for the same reason they kept the Abu Ghraib pictures on their front pages for years. The same reason they deliberately gave their dear snipers and bombers ALL our most SECRET ways of detection. They can not choose sides……you see…..they are ‘professionals’. I simplied my description of them when they decided to come out of the closet and just help our enemies and hurt our allies…..the secret prisons. Now I just call them traitors.

    I wonder how the lefties would judge some our extremist groups blowing up shopping malls, car bombs running into civilians, and suicide bombers in our midst here in this country. Would they be insurgents (patriots) who disapprove d of the admistration (government) or would they be, at most, criminals or traitors? Would the media laud their efforts? What is the difference between this scenario and the insurgents in Iraq. These people are fighting their own government and trying to destroy it. And this government was duly elected by the whole country. . That is one thing the Denocrats and these insurgents have in common. Lack of respect for the electorate. They will try time and again to overturn an election or use the courts to do so. It makes no difference to them that Bush was elected by electoral vote and popular vote (3m). they don’t want him to be proesident and they will do anything to take him down. If it takes the country down at the same time, too bad.
