Subject: RE: BS: Liberal Media getting Soldiers Killed...
Well I seem to remember a media backlash against Sinead O Connor because she tore up a picture of the Pope on TV.
I agree with you Dianavan.
While the O connor's backlash didn't result in riots or people dying it did offend some People and their Religion.

If an Iraq Paper published photographs of American POW's in Prison and told how the Bible was thrown down the Toilet and published Photographs of them being stripped naked know thrown on top of one another blindfolded and led around on a leash, I won't go on, I am sure we are all aware of the details by now.
Bet ya there would be a backlash....some may even take to the Streets but I don't think the baclash would be about the Photographs or the abuse of the POW's, I think the issue that would be taken to the streets would be the Bible being flushed down a Toilet.

When People took to the Streets in this Country and around the World demanding Peace before this War even started...they were labeled Traitors or Hippies and stinky Liberal Commies.. and worse!

They can attempt to shift the the blame on whoever/whatever they wish.
The blame however lies with the Administration that invaded Iraq based on a Lie....they even got rewarded for lying by getting back in for another 4 years to keep the lies going.

Yeah Newsweek is to blame...yeah right...if it makes them feel better saying that....fine. Go right ahead. Let them tell themselves that each night. Let them tell themselves that all the People that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan daily wouldn't be if Newsweek had just been a tad more responsible.
