lies, damn lies and Iraq press releases

So the Iraqi government is claiming that the first strikes landed in civilian areas and there are civilian casualties.

This is the Iraq version of shock and awe.

They will shock and awe the anti-war supporters with their tales of gruesome civilian deaths at the hands of the criminal, ugly Americans.

The rumor, hearsay and propaganda machines have started humming.


Have you ever considered what the US propaganda-machine is able to? In reports and examples I read a report (in german, so I won't link) about how the US now changed their propaganda and press-work in comparison to the last Gulf War. Free journalism in the US died after 9-11, now many fear it might die in other countries, too.
