Outlaws? Battle against Outlaws? CNN did a wonderful diversionary follow up to Bush's Monday proclamation that US soldiers will not die in vain. First, they headlined an article about Saddam Hussein's last days. Yeah, remember him, remember how you just woke up one morning to news that he was dead, executed after the trial by an uninternational court of law for killing 148 people in 1982, while still on trial for killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Trial for killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Trial for killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. So Bush was talking Monday about his orders to send 4000 US soldiers to their deaths and no one mentioned, like always, the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who have died in Bush's Operation Occupation. And today, the intense fighting in"oil rich" Basra, the green zone, Sadr City and all over the southern region is marginalized by CNN reporting as a battle against outlaws! The Pentagon and Bush would like to reiterated that all of this new and escalated fighting is simply proof of the success of the surge in US troops.
