the MainStream Media is sometimes called...

...the Alien Nation News. What follows is from Steve at ThreatsWatch. It is illustrative of why I consider that our nation's 4th Estate has become part of our nation's 5th Column. I am of the quaint and archaic persuasion that media should report news rather than purport to be news. There is a very distinct line between news and propaganda. This is the line which separates the '4th Estate' from the '5th Column'.

Loud Booms are War Crimes

"With all of the violence erupting around Israel and within Gaza in particular, an ABC story with the headline that reads Israel’s Sonic Booms Terrifying Gaza Children is another indication that Israel has few friends in the region, including the international media outlets."

"With terrorists kidnapping westerners in Gaza, suicide bombers’ unrelenting thirst for blood inside Israeli borders in malls and on buses, and rocket attacks on apartment buildings, that a news organization chooses to highlight mere loud noises (sonic booms) created by Israeli aircraft and characterized them as ‘terrifying’ is troubling on one hand and, yet, not unexpected and amusing on the other. ABC focused its story around frightened Palestinian children and even took the trouble to seek out a Gaza psychiatrist who called the sonic booms ‘war crimes’."

"There was no such mention of terrified children or their psychological well-being in the Kiryat Shmona apartment buildings where two katyusha rockets exploded (complete with shrapnel) Tuesday night. Nor is there ever any mention that shredding non-combatant civilians (not excluding children) in malls and on buses with suicide bombs is a ‘war crime’."

"But Israel causing loud booms ‘without notice’ warrants investigative reporting."

This had to come from a real creepy-crawly Swamp(!). One that makes Bubba's Bog seem like a scenic wetland which shoul be guarded by Greenpeace and preserved as a National Park.

Peace and all good,

I grew up on air force bases. Accordingly, as a brat I was subjected to the occasional sonic boom. Am I eligible for compensation for this?

What's that? I can't hear you ....
