Holy shit, people die in war?
It's interesting to hear CNN's increasingly subdued war reporting. It's gradually evolved from rank cheerleading and mocking of the Iraqi defenders, to surprise that "liberated" Iraqis weren't showering our troops with rose petals and actually dared to resist, to sickening acceptance that "our" soldiers are dying.
Remember, US/UK forces haven't even reached Baghdad -- were the bulk of Iraq's defenses are located. This isn't a trip to Disney World, and the cable networks are finally waking up to reality.Posted March 23, 2003 08:46 AM | Comments (78)
