Agreement re Dial Up Internet User

by me too Monday, Mar. 24, 2003 at 4:26 AM

I wish web site operators would realize that the majority of web users in the world have dial up lines and, as long the phone company/cable company cartel restricts high speed access, this fact will not change.

The Great Propaganda Spectacle

by Gary Sudborough Monday, Mar. 24, 2003 at 4:18 PM

I have noticed a couple of glaring contradictions in the way the corporate mass media are covering this war. With constant repetition, they portray the missiles and bombs which are striking Baghdad as precise, satellite-guided weapons that invariably strike their targets within a few feet of intended impact, causing very few civilian casualties. If these missiles are so accurate, why did several of them veer way off course and hit Iran?

Donald Rumsfeld has stated that Iraqi television showing the captured American soldiers is a violation of the Geneva Convention. I noticed that American television is showing pictures of the captured Iraqi soldiers. What's the difference? Also, the United States is really in violation of the Geneva Convention for torturing Afghan prisoners at Bagram air base in Afghanistan and keeping the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba shackled and hooded. Denial of sunlight and sleep leads to severe mental problems and is a terrible form of torture.

CNN, MSNBC, and Fox are treating this war more like a gigantic fireworks display than as something which causes intense human suffering. During the Vietnam War, there were courageous journalists who showed the reality of that war-the children running with napalm burning their flesh, the huts burning, the My Lai massacre and the fear and anger on people's faces. Not any more. Grenada, Panama, the first Persian Gulf war, Yugoslavia and now this war against Iraq have all been very controlled, sanitized versions of the reality of war. One sees maps and discussions with generals and military analysts about strategy and tactics. There are other discussions about the intricacies of all the various weapons systems. No opponents of the war are allowed to question its morality or the possible economic and political reasons for it. If pictures of wounded Iraqi children are shown, there are always commentators there questioning whether these aren't fictitious creations of Iraqi propaganda.

Then, there is the rampant lying that always accompanies war. How many times have I heard that Umm Oasr, Nasiriya and Basra have been captured, only to later find out that fierce fighting was still going on there? Neither side tells the truth about casualties. I heard a story that the Republican Guard is using civilians as human shields. Do they really need to do this? Those Iraqi parents who have lost children by the thousands to sanctions and cancers from depleted uranium are certainly angry enough to fight themselves. I am confident that after the conclusion of this war, weapons of mass destruction will suddenly be "discovered" so that they can adequately justify this mass destruction of Iraqi civilization.

CNN is immediately calling every American soldier who is killed a hero, and they then conduct interviews with family members of soldiers involved in the war, showing their wives and little children. They repeatedly ran a quote by the father of a soldier who was killed saying that antiwar demonstrators could better spend their time working for charity or picking up litter. These are blatant propaganda techniques. Are the American people so anesthetized by decades of sophisticated propaganda by the mass media and in school that they simply can't visualize the motivations of the American government as being anything other than noble and protective? If so, we are going to be subject to one war after another on behalf of corporate power and control, which is what really motivates all wars of aggression by capitalist nations.

5 question quiz

by Icee Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 11:00 AM

Here are five questions that every American should be able to answer. Can you answer them?

1. What do the names Abusto, Zapata, Spectrum 7 and Harken have to do with the Bush family?
2. Rice is on the board of directors of a company, do you know which one?
3. Current President George W. Bush's father (former President George H.W. Bush), and the father of Osama Bin Laden have something in common. What does the Carlyle Group have to with these two men?
4. Who visited Saddam Hussein during the Reagan years, about, "topics of mutual interest"?
5. When did the OPEC nations switch from the Dollar to the Euro?

If you don't know the answers to any of these questions, go to your library or search the internet until you do.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

by kittdawn Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 7:39 PM

CNN, ABC, NBC, WB, etc etc etc

it is a network of people who have the SAME RIGHTS as the protester! They can say what ever they want!! They are in America!

So what if a guy calls a US soldier a hero, that is his opinion! You have your own opinion of US soldiers and thats fine, neither of you are right or wrong!

Unbiased Reporting?

by Mark Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 8:36 PM
Huntington Beach

You say there were 20,000 people at the march? I was there - I think an estimate of 5,000 would be generous. As much as I wish there were 100,000 people there, you undermine your credibility as a news organization by over stating the facts.

The size of the photos you have posted is absurd. I would love to see them, but between a dial-up connection and a screen resolution of 1024x768, I'll pass.

This is my first visit to your site - better luck next time.
