Reporting From Iraq

Michael Yon is reporting about Iraq from Iraq, as opposed to reporting about Iraq not from Iraq. There is a big difference, as Yon points out to Glenn Reynolds.

Update: After viewing the Yon example of good journalism, check out an example of Euro propaganda that Dean Esmay suffered through. Highlights include segments on the Evil Cheney Halliburton and Our Friend, Saddam.

Nice work.

maggysturn:

"But the biggest problem we face right now, is the danger than the United States will validate the terrorist's strategy, that in fact what will happen here, with all of the debate over whether or not we ought to stay in Iraq. ... That we don't have the stomach for the fight. That's the biggest threat."
-- Vice President Cheney, 1/24/07

VERSUS

"Oh, I'm so sorry the vice president so underestimates the people of this country. He has so little faith in this country to say something like that. ... [M]aybe the vice president should tell the families of those who have lost their lives, over 3,000, and over 23,000 wounded, some very seriously for life, that they don't have the stomach? Come on, let's get real here."
-- Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), 1/24/07

JLawson:

He is being real, Maggy. We've been carefully told that the price is way too high right now - and not told that delaying the cost now will lead to a much higher one later.

But that's okay - right? It'll be fine to expend ten or twenty times that number under a Democratic president, because then it can all be blamed on Bush!

jp:

Lorie,

this is OT, but I have something you could blog on if I could find a video clip of it online. in Pelosi's "Friends of God" "documentary" there is a scene near the end with a billboard sign and inside the letter "O" is a sillhoutte of an Abu Ghraib prisoner........I'm suprised I haven't seen any blogs on this yet, or on Newsbusters.org. Its obvious point in how Pelosi was trying to frame this "documentary"

Thank you for the link Lori... (Below threshold)

Thank you for the link Lorie...especially powerful were the images of respect for the fallen..It is criminal that this administration has forbidden images of flag draped coffins coming into Dover.
His words how as encouraging things are, the opposite is just as possible are real...Mosul is where our son-in-law was shot by a sniper (not killed fortunately) in 2005...
We differ on respect for our occupation but agree on respect for the warrior

U.S. troops dead as a result of their service in Iraq

jp:

just as many troops died in service under Clinton than have under Bush, its a stupid media driven strawman argued by the ignorant.

look up military deaths in the "peace" period of the 90's, it was at it highest post-Vietnam under Jimmy Carter, clost to 3k in one year in late 70's

nogo postal:

I love ya jp...notice to all of those who have(maybe rightly so)questioned my concept to reality...
Remember, the reason we hang out here..and more importantly with our real friends...at any given moment there is someone who makes us...for a bit seem rational...it may not last, but I will embrace jp as someone who allows me to appear rational.

...but I would add...it is just plain criminal that our govt has hidden "Jimmy's Secret War" from us for all these years...
jp...go to http://www.icasualties.org to read about Bush War deaths..don't forget to read hometown articles on the right...they give us glimpse beyond the numbers...
