7. They don't want to talk about the real issues
Like the Plamme outing, DSM, troop casualties, the economy, the deficit, etc.

10. Bush wants us to get angry enough to go to war with Iran and take Tony
along. Why wouldn't the PNAC perpetrators of 9/11 do it again when it worked so well last time?

12. Because they can't talk about DSM or Plamegate.
Bla, bla, bla, anything but what might threaten Fratboy and his evil gang of thugs.

14. How long will it take them to tie the bombings to Iran?
I wouldn't put anything past the lying warmongers that are currently in power.

17. Iran, Iraq Agree on Military Cooperation
7 July 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Iran said today that it will complete a military and anti-terrorist cooperation agreement with Iraq that will include Iranian help in training Iraq's armed forces.


Iraqi Defense Minister Sa'dun al-Dulaymi told a joint news conference with Iranian Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Minister Ali Shamkhani that he is visiting Iran, in his words, "to ask forgiveness for what Saddam Hussein has done." Iraq and Iran fought a bitter war in the 1980s during Hussein's rule.

Asked about possible U.S. opposition to Iran-Iraq military cooperation, al-Dulaymi said: "No one can prevent us from reaching an agreement."

He pledged also that Iraq will not permit any country to attack Iran from Iraqi territory.

16. the better to frighten you, my dear . . .
fear is, after all, BushCo's stock in trade . . . their life's blood . . . and CNN is certainly one of BushCo's house organs . . . thus the blood and gore and guts, veins in the teeth, dead burnt bodies . . . (with apologies to Arlo) . . .

20. If anyone is interested and gets BBC America...
Their coverage of this has been extraordinary. And not sensationalized.

An aside: Tony Blair looks about 100 years old.

23. Gratuitous pandering to morbid curiosity to sell products and to
dehumanize the grief and horrible personal tragedy that innocent people are suffering but mostly because they are corporate media whores trying to advance careers and MAKE MORE MONEY.

24. But, "it's interesting when people die. Give us dirty laundry...."
I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something, something I can use
People love it when you lose, they love dirty laundry

Well, I could've been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear, give us dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em all around

We got the bubbleheaded bleach-blonde, comes on at 5
She can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye
It's interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet?
You know the boys in the newsroom got a running bet
Get the widow on the set, we need dirty laundry

You don't really need to find out what's going on
You don't really want to know just how far it's gone
Just leave well enough alone, keep your dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're stiff, kick 'em all around

Dirty little secrets, dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody's pie
Love to cut you down to size, we love dirty laundry

We can do the innuendo, we can dance and sing
When it's said and done, we haven't told you a thing
We all know that crap is king, give us dirty laundry

Dirty Laundry by Don Henley

25. Most of them aren't Iraqi
If they were, we wouldn't even know a few buses and trains were bombed.

32. They have to keep their artists busy till the need for Iran War Graphics
Musicians too for the typical foreboding haunting melodies.

Makes me sick.
