Why does the rest of the world think we are blind? (2)
And I am not reading into it because it is so blatant.....yet it
appears to be effective in terms of American public opinion. Anyone
speaking as I do is un-American...right?....or anti-semitic.....Right?
Then we listen to Europeans saying that Americans are blind. So we
call them names when the answer is simple. They aren't watching the
same things we are when it comes to the Middle East. Which seems more
likely?....that the European media and that of the rest of the world
are fabricating events which happen there and are hiring actors for
the videotapes they present on the news to perpetrate a hoax or that
the American media is simply selectively omitting those events from
their news coverage?
The American media have been reporting in this way for years and our
politicians have been setting policy accordingly for as many years.
How does a politician stand a chance at staying in office if he/she is
targeted by a collective combination of very influential special
interest groups campaign contributors from large corporations who are
pro-Israel AND a biased media who will drag them through the mud.
What is sickening is that in light of 9/11 they are still doing it.
How about trying to address the root causes of what happened in
addition to going after and punisheing the perpetrators.
The rest of the world seems to know why we were attacked yet we
don't. Oh yeah......we were attacked because these people "hate
freedom". I guess there are some people who are ready to kill
themselves because they hate freedom so much. I guess the only country
which truly loves freedom is the United States. The Europeans Asians
Russians etc. don't agree with our policies because they don't love
So who is really at fault here? If one were to try to blame an entity
which is not that hard to change in order to effect a subsequent
change in policies which would then lead to a solution I would have
to blame the American media for their failure to present a true
picture of the Middle East and our role in it.
A change in that combined with genuine UN Security Council reform
which eliminates the 5 country permanent veto power would begin the
process of promoting global cooperation and effective support for the
war against terror.
