Bush's Speech, a lesson for the media - Some simple math
It is getting hard to count what is NOT being said!

http://tvnewslies.org/html/blatant_lies.html

Many were expecting George Bush to accept responsibility for the events in Iraq tonight. We at TVNL are waiting for the media to accept responsibility as well.

Snip -
1. A MATH LESSON
Number of times George Bush used the word terror or terrorist during this speech: NINETEEN
Number of times George Bush acknowledged any mistakes in planning the invasion and postwar occupation of Iraq: ZERO
Number of times George Bush explained how the invasion of Iraq was even remotely connected to the war on terror: ZERO
Number of times George Bush explained how anyone in the US or the world is safer as a result of a pre-emptive war against Iraq: ZERO
MORE.
More
2. ANOTHER MATH LESSON
Number of Americans hurt or killed by an Iraqi terrorist prior to the US invasion of Iraq: ZERO
Number of threats to America or Americans made by Saddam Hussein that were not in response to American threats: ZERO
Number of wars launched by Iraq on America: ZERO
Number of threats to launch war on America by Saddam Hussein: ZERO
More

2. Colon Powell too
Powell used the term "nuclear" 22 times in his fst presentation to the UNSC on Iraq. He does not use that term much these days!

3. media won't touch the 'math'
It's never about what Bush refused to say. It's just about what he says over and over and over....and the media asks whether people agree or disagree with the empty rhetoric. Never changes....
