Another Journalist Murdered by U.S. Troops

Listen, at some point people are going to realize that the U.S. military has a policy of killing people it doesn't like - and that includes journalists. Unlike 'insurgents', journalists are dangerous to the people in Washington - not physically, of course - politically; and that's why truth-telling journos must be eliminated - with much more urgency than quashing a few more 'bad guys'. It's really as simple as that.

That Eason Jordan was forced to resign after telling the people of the U.S. what the rest of the world already knew is par for the course in American 'journalism' today. When the next journalist 'accidentally' gets bombed into his or her next life, we'll hear the same excuses. The U.S. does not have a policy of targeting journos. Kinda sounds like...'the U.S. does not have a policy of abusing prisoners', doesn't it?

At the end of the day, if you still don't believe that the U.S. kills journalists deliberately, you have to ask yourself - how exactly does something like this happen? And why won't George let the Italians inspect the bullet-ridden car?

Of course, I can't imagine the Italian people are all that excited about the U.S. military killing more Italian civilians. Kinda forgot about that one, didn't ya? All that red stuff on the snow? It's part of what spilled out of the 20 people who were squashed to death, inside their cable car, after falling 370 feet to the ground, where they were horrificly and instantaneously squeezed from above and below, until their bodies literally burst. I guess the equivalent of getting thrown off the top of a 30-storey building will do that to a body. Who knew?
