The distortions continue

By
• Topics: News Media, War & Peace,
The American media are reporting the basics of the massacre of unarmed Iraqi civilians by our US Army two days ago. Finally. But they are using the lowest reported numbers - not the higher and more reliable numbers. And the reports give credence to the US military routine excuse that they were fired on first - while foreign reports deny any firing was seen.

Why believe foreign reports? Because it is now emerging they accurately reported events of the war between March 20 and April 12, while our American media were twisting events for propaganda and US war-goal purposes.

There was another shooting today, wounding 16. Being wounded by an American military rifle is a life-changing event - not to be trivialized.

Check the Russian Iraq War site for accurate reporting of what is happening in Iraq. We need the truth to be informed citizens. Not sugar-coated and sanitized reports that always make us look like the good guys. We could be the good guys in Iraq - but our troops are trigger happy - as the British press will tell you.
