Iraqi-Americans Rejoice

While many media are giving publicity to appeasement protests by non-Iraqi Muslims in America, the Orange County Register today noted that Iraqi-Americans are celebrating and praising President Bush.

"This is the day we've been waiting for" was the theme of a gathering of Iraqi-Americans last night in Tustin, Calif.

"My mind is with the people over there, what they're thinking right now," said Mohammad Alnajafi. "I know they're scared, but it's like they're in a tunnel running toward the light. These moments are like centuries for them. No one knows what Saddam might do, but he cannot take the country hostage forever."

"I would like to go kiss Bush on his head," said Faiza Nouri, 62. Her son has been missing in Iraq for more than 20 years.

Interesting.

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

we are not going into this war to free people, then why are we using it as propaganda? millions of people are living under tyranny all over the world, are we going to free the world? this kind of stuff disgusts me, its specifically targetted to produce warm feelings and have people think "wow, we really are doing something right". its sad how easily people can be manipulated and brainwashed.

Gosh Alpo, thanks for showing me the true path. Keep walking down it until you fall off the cliff at the end.

Bugs you that there are those who'll be glad to see the troops come rolling in, doesn't it? Just eating away at you.

Average Iraqi resents the U.S. more than Saddam

excerpt

"Iraqis moving in and out of their country as war looms warn that invading U.S. troops likely would face a population determined to fight to the death.

President Bush has appealed to Iraqis, promising liberation.

But many now see America which insisted on economic sanctions that hurt millions of Iraqis and is poised to defy world opinion by waging war as more of a menace now than Saddam Hussein."

ALL propaganda?

... as the US news media is already heavily censored.

Nonsense. Different media outlets (depending on their editorial policies and marketing plans) emphasize some coverage at the expense of others. It has always been thus and always will be. That's why any reasonably sizeable city has no difficulty supporting several newspapers, for example.

Censorship doesn't occur when an editor chooses not to focus on or even mention a given story, it occurs when that editor is forbidden by the government to mention a given story.

To me it doesn't matter who does the censoring, it's still censorship imo as the media and the goverment are in cahoots.

"Daniel Hallin, a communications professor at the University of California at San Diego, also said the media will attempt to avoid public backlash. "The media will use self-censorship, censoring graphic information and controversial issues and anything reflecting negatively on U.S. troops.""

excerpt from Media, not military, will censor information

If you want to be taken seriously in this forum, I suggest you use words the way they are meant to be used, rather than assign personalized meanings to them.

As for "self-censorship", that is a contradiction in terms.

It will probably have less effect on the hearts of many clueless people than the silly articles opposing the war.

Few people on either side take the time to inform themselves and think it through all the way. Most support or oppose based on feelings rather than logic. This is nothing new.
