Thread Name: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Putting words in my mouth again, Wolfgang.

I was talking specifically about Sudan in this instance. I was not making an across the board generalization about all conflicts. And I was talking specifically about the behavior of the US government and news media, and the reasons they are categorizing the people in Sudan the way they are. I was not speaking about the origins of the conflict. In the case of Sudan, the use by the US government and news media, of race and/or ethnicity is a purely manipulative ploy to garner support for an agenda that is motivated entirely by profit motive.

And in the case of the US government and media, they will use any excuse they can find to promote hatred of Arabs (and Muslims).

Lepus Rex knew what I was saying. That's because he knows how things work with the US government and news media as well as I do.
