This was brought to my attention in the comments of my latest post, Our Democrats. (thanks again, Tom!)
I didn’t know about this as I don’t watch the alphabet news channels anymore.
“By the way, here’s some German support: An Open Letter to ABC News”
What are they speaking of? Go here: A Violent “Normal” day in Baghdad
(warning ~ graphic video and blood pressure raising text.)
Remember the sniper footage on CNN?
Well, I think ABC has outdone them.
I have a real hard time with this part:
In another instance of Smith’s reporting, Lake’s platoon responded to a Bradley armored vehicle being hit by a roadside bomb, leaving six American soldiers and an Iraqi translator burning to death inside.
Are you still confused as to why so many of the American people are not supportive of our troops?
With this type of “let’s show the US Troops in the worst light possible reporting” which is the norm and has been since President Bush decided that action in the Middle East was warranted finally, our foolish, pandering politicians using our troops lives as political scoring points, and the Administration’s spine crumbling in the face of Poll pressure, you have a winning strategy to aid and abet the enemy.
Of course, I realize that this nonsense is going to be ramped up as The Surge shows more and more signs of progress – which it is regardless of what you see on TV, read in the newspapers or hear from the floor of the Senate or the House. But with the “Get Bush” Democrats exploiting the hatred toward America of the leftist fringe element for votes and seats, too many Republicans acting as anything but, and such dreadful people as the woman who will not be named getting major press coverage for her inane drivel, and “most of America at the Mall”, how else could it be?
Al Qaeda and all the other gangs of death and destruction are laughing their collective arse’s off (except for those that our troops have sent to their just reward and I don’t think that it includes any virgins…) at the ‘weak horse” infidels. And that would be us.
And until we decide that this is beyond the pale and start speaking up, taking action against this and showing the bastards that their time of being a wing of the enemy is over, it will continue and we will have another Vietnam with Iraq (after we leave) making Cambodia look like a picnic.
But at least we will have our troops home to help clean up the casualties and rubble here.
