Subject: RE: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
One that believes the "Hype" I see.

"resounding success more like"

"- No casualties - No resistance - Nobody hurt "...Really, well that's a relief because that is not what I have heard/read and it would seem that these three terms can mean diffrent things depending on where your perspective is coming from.

It would seem that I need to re-read the link and the many other sources I have been reading over the last few days. Some of the number crunching I see above me is frankly amazing!
"The largest Air ASSAULT since 2003.."
mmmm.
So when it suits the purposes of Propaganda it is perfectly acceptable to allude to the events in the air over Iraq in 2003 but it is unacceptable for the press, or anyone else for that matter, to point out that this particular Fiasco was, thankfully, absolutely nothing like the events of 2003, absolutely nothing like them.

Unlike the administration's Fiscal Advisors, it's supporters seem to make better use of a calculator however. I see some great number crunching.

"I sincerely hope the Journalists enjoyed their freshly baked bread, I also hope that they paid for it."

Actually I hope that the Commanders of 'Operation Delusional' paid the Woman for her Bread, after all those were the people who asked Reporters to join them on the 'Daytrip', in fact I hope the reporters got paid for their time and enjoyed what seems to be to all intents and purposes a very bland 'packed Lunch' not even the mention of a soft Drink, Bottle of Spring water or fresh fruit in the Time article.

The Woman baking the bread however I am sure offered little resistance when approached for some of her baking. I know if I was confronted by 1500 armed personnel that emerged from 50 helicopters in my back field I would give them the damn bread I was making for nothing personally, make no mistake about it.

31 Insurgents. No doubt a massive blow has been struck at the heart of the Insurgents core...!

Ah hype...it smells as sweet as baking bread when it reaches the ears of the desperately seeking justification.
