Subject: RE: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Mariner you've got it in one - Embeded reporters, spin and propaganda... Do we know what is going on - NO - do we understand what is going on - NO - we'd all like to but we won't see the documents until they are released in years to come when, sadly, as an octagenarian I shall probably be worried about the state of my teeth if I am still here! Modern in history Students will then be able to work out somewhere near the truth whcih I am sure none of us know.


The friedly fire incidents in both this and the last conflict do seem to be a bit unbalanced! shall I crack a really bad joke and state perhaps not enough marching and singing which all the movies seem to show as the best way to train American soldiers - sorry sick - but this is all heavy stuff. Letws get Dr B back in there and lets find that which in theory justifies the war - if it exists!
