The War in Iraq

Whatever side of the Iraq war you're on, one thing is absolutely clear: the media doesn't have a clue what is really going on over there. Or, if they do, they are deliberately misleading the American public. Come on, let's face it. Practicaly the only thing we ever hear about Iraq from the media is someone dying. Have you heard much else? O, yes, and the supposed failure of the new republic to have regular elections.

Well, I personally know someone who spent nigh on a year over there. His report? Very different. He would have said something like, "Yeah, there's danger over there. But you should have seen it during the Hussein days. That was really bad. This is peanuts compared to that." But is that the impression you would get from the media? I think not.

There's another thing that puzzles me. I always thought gas prices went up when the Middle East was unstable. But they're going down. Someone needs to tell these gas stations to up their prices! After all, according to the media, the only thing happening over there is death and failed government!

In Christ.

THANK YOU!!! You're right on. For all their talk about reporting facts, the media obviously has a bias. I know people who have been over there, too, and much good has definitely been accomplished.

People these days! ;)
