Edited on Sat May-15-04 07:39 AM by mopaul
just caught a few minutes of shawnny boy explaining why he played the berg decapitation audio on his show, uncut. he says it's a good thing and that all americans SHOULD hear it, to remind them of the true evil of our enemy. he said it would affect them the way 9-11 did and give us resolve to move forward with our global domination plans.

see?...see?...the right wing WANTS the berg video to be shown, TO COUNTERACT THE TORTURE AND RAPE AND DEATH AND HUMILIATION photos.

see why there are so many insane conspiracy theories going around?

see why the republican senators want to hide the photos in the pentagon? see why the berg video came out at such a convenient time?
see how it's the only thing to top the torture scandal in over two weeks?

see?.............see?................does anybody besides me see it?

1. mo, he played the audio
on his radio show.

(at least that what the story I saw said and it included a brief interview with the raving POS)

at least (apparently) he didn't get a laugh out of it like the two fools in Portland (?) who were fired...

that said, the rest of what you say is true. RWs are pumping the Berg horror to blunt/justify the AG photos...

that and the endlines 'few bad apples' talking point

7. s'ok mo
give the ferret a nice smoothing stroke...

i saw it last night (Larry King?) while my writing partner (for the ?W Revue) was over for dinner.

we both thought it was pretty disgusting to play audio of it. but, we agreed that there is nothing, absolutely NOTHING too low for RWs trying to protect the chimperial cabal

love love love fushbush!

2. Yes, I see your point
I'm really torn here....

I, like many others here, have deep suspicions about the entire Berg story. In trying to make sense of a senseless act, I'll try on various sizes of tinfoil hats and then quickly discard them. But I also know that the Bushies have done so much crap that I shouldn't trust the official story line and may eventually end up cursing myself for being so niave.

There is just so much that doesn't add up.

Is it tinfoil or healthy skepticism?

4. you are correct
I even heard Neal Boortz railing that CNN won't show the decapitation because of "liberal bias," and that al jazeera won't because it would reduce the terrorist hero-worship in the arab world, but everyone shows the torture stuff because the hate america or hate bush:

http://boortz.com/nuze/200405/05132004.html

"This morning in most of the newspapers I scanned during my preparation for the show the top story was still the Iraqi prison abuse scandal. Nick Berg had already disappeared from many front pages, but the prison abuse stories remain. May I suggest to you that there is a reason for this? Maybe it's just this simple: The prison abuse scandal can damage Bush, the Nick Berg story can only help him. Given the choice many editors will chose the stories that serve their cause, getting Bush out of the White House, rather than one that hurts it."

http://boortz.com/nuze/200405/05122004.html

"That was last night ... but what about this morning? What about today? Arab television channels, who have no qualms at all about showing bloody images, have yet to show the decapitation of Nick Berg. These television stations had no problem at all repeatedly showing any image they could get their hands on of American soldiers abusing Iraqi pictures ... but they just can't bring themselves to show the brutality of their own people."

5. as always the hypocrisy
Edited on Sat May-15-04 07:47 AM by mharris660
"it's a good thing and that all Americans SHOULD see it, to remind them of the true evil of our enemy"

if he were honest he woulda added,

"now here's the rape and torture footage committed by our American troops, we want to remind Americans how evil how country our can be also"

A credible journalist would have then said, "We want you, as Americans to see the horrors of war so that we may avoid it in the future, After all we at Faux News are fair and balanced"

hahahahahahahahahahha, I made myself laugh at the fair and balanced part, even woke the dog.

10. most people do not want to see it.
why didn`t Clinton ratings fall? because people thought it was none of their business but more to the point-they didn`t want to hear about it! who other than splatter movie fans would want to watch someone get their head craved off? you`ll see more blood in a movie than the video-why- the guy was dead! others will just say "oh you know how those Arabs are"-getting all their knowledge from movies..
why the berg video will fade away is that the American people feel more outrage that the thought that our men and women could do the things they are accused of-our good wholesome boys and girls could never do something so awful-that`s why the prisoner abuse won`t go away no matter how hard bush tries to hide it...

12. The Audio Alone Is Haunting...
After seeing your post, I popped on the video with just the audio track going and I could see how it could be a propagandist's dream come true.

Most of it is the ranting of the reading of the sentence. The distorted audio gives it the aura of ranting, evil do-ers...just like the old-time radio variety (poor audio quality helps)...and then the screams and background noise that make it sound even eerier. I could see Shawn-boy (or more like some RNC operative) who noticed this effect and just let the listener's imagination create whatever evil, horiffic scene they could conger. Kinda like a good scary sermon...make you wanna run to father Bunnypants for protection. Not!

I think it's time to leave the Berg story and family to rest...events are moving too fast and to dwell on it much longer plays into the regime's attempt to distract from the mess Americans are really starting to wake up to. I suspect we'll see and hear worse stuff to come...especially if we get the Lynndie England version of "Shaving Ryan's Privates" on computer screens near you.

13. it only works for the stupid thinking
since who they said did this are people not associated with iraq and iraqi's. they are people from other countries there specifically because the u.s. went there and started war. this is not the war on iraq, it is the war on terrorist we brought to the innocent iraq
