Excellent insights from Ken Walsh, radio personality on WFTW’s “The Wake-Up Call” (Fort Walton Beach, Florida) and a good friend of ours.

The TIME magazine folks were actually disappointed that there was no shooting. Without shooting and bombing and artillery strikes there was no chance to report that more dead American servicemen were killed while terrorizing and executing more innocent Iraqi women and children.As far as they are concerned, the only thing we got out of the exercise was some thirty captured terrorists. These thirty are the allies of the Democrat Party of the United States. In the eyes of the media, how are the so-called “insurgents” ever going to drive the great Satan out their country if the Iraqi military and police keeping rounding up the very people whose job it is to blow up American military personnel with IED’s and car bombs?
One quote brings me to comment on the total lack of understanding on the part of the media with things military. Remember that the people who report on this stuff simply have no idea what in the hell they are even talking about.
Here is the quote from the same article.
“But contrary to what many many television networks erroneously reported, the operation was by no means the largest use of airpower since the start of the war. (“Air Assault” is a military term that refers specifically to transporting troops into an area.)”
These so-called war correspondents and journalists are over there and we depend on them to tell the American people what is really going on? They don’t even know the basic terminology!
Remember early in the Gulf War I at one of the press briefings in Saudi Arabia when they showed the video of a shoot-down of an Iraqi aircraft? The pilot was heard in the background saying “Fox 2, Fox 2”. It is indelibly etched in my brain that the next thing that happened was that some doofus from CNN chimes in saying something to the effect that the pilot was telling others that he had just fired one of the new Fox air-to-air missiles. It then became abundantly clear to me that most of the reporters over there then and now don’t know shit from shinola.
That is why we may have to pay someone with half a brain to write an article with positive info about the activities of the coalition forces in Iraq and then request Iraqi newspapers to run them. Of course, the NYTimes will never publish such propaganda, even if it is factually accurate.
Just remember, boys and girls, that condoms cannot protect our troops from Democrats.
The big D in Democrat stands for Defeat of the United States and its military.
