US troops tell about brutal side of Iraq war - Foreign news source takes a shot at our media

WASHINGTON - The leftist weekly magazine The Nation has dedicated its entire July 30 edition to the testimonies of 50 US troops shocked by the heavy civilian casualty toll exacted by the US-led occupation of Iraq.

Just the carnage, all the blown-up civilians, blown-up bodies that I saw ... I started thinking like, Why? What was this for? said army specialist Jeff Englehart.

The weekly said it was the the first time so many on-the-record, named eyewitnesses from within the US military have been assembled in one place to openly corroborate ... a brutal side of the war rarely seen on television screens or chronicled in newspaper accounts.

As if to confirm the assessment, only the Los Angeles Times daily had written about The Nations issue, which on Saturday continued to go unreported by the countrys main television stations and newspapers.

1. You know how it is in an "empire". PRETEND, over and over and over, again.
Money will flow to the top,...blood to the bottom.

Unnecessary suffering will continue until the human well is run dry.

Then, the Ruling Class will save everyone,...

,...to sustain the coffer of greed.

History doesn't repeat itself,...the most aweful and egregious of humanity does. Like fresh shit, the worst always floats immediately to the top. But, sinks,...not without smell or trail,...but, the evil sinks.

I just hope we can collect that shit, better than the last time; but, DAYUM,...these fuckers have shit all over the place!!!!

Wow, you really hit it there. That is also the reality of "trickle down" economics, or as I prefer to call it, "Trickle down--tinkle down."

2. I think some of the talking heads in our news media should be charged with treason.
