Terrorists lying about casualties to a media that wants to be fooled

Category: terrorismharmonicminer @ 4:06 pm


Lying about civilian casualties is the one sure way to impede or even halt US (or Israeli) operations, to force such tight restrictions on our troops that they can’t win.

The casualty con’s so effective as both propaganda and tactic that terrorists everywhere have adopted the technique. It’s been so successful that our enemies long ago transitioned to the next phase: creating civilian casualties and blaming us.

It works. The media love the charge. Our troops and pilots are always guilty — even if proven innocent. Because so many on the left want us to be guilty.

Read it all. And approach future civilian casualty counts with appropriate skepticism.

Thomas Sowell on the The Blame Game

Read it all

After virtually every disaster created by Beltway politicians you can hear the sound of feet scurrying for cover in Washington, see fingers pointing in every direction away from Washington, and watch all sorts of scapegoats hauled up before Congressional committees to be denounced on television for the disasters created by members of the committee who are lecturing them.

Do you REALLY want these people running your health care?

The Essence of the Christian Message is…

Following is a great read, keeping in mind that it was essentially a propaganda move by Stalin to get the world to see “fascism” (national socialism) as the opposite of “communism” (ideologically, at least, international socialism), when both were socialist, and both were totalitarian, and far more alike than different.

the Quintessential Liberal Fascist

While most modern Americans remember well Hitler’s Holocaust and the Cold War waged by a solid U.S.S.R., many of these same Americans have swallowed some false history regarding the movements that spawned such widespread, horrendous results. In what may be regarded as the most triumphant propaganda victory of our time, fascism has been scrubbed of all its Marxist roots, while communism has been scrubbed of its millions of callous murders.


In reporting that California wants a piece of TARP, Michelle Malkin wants the feds to let California sink into the ocean.

Message from taxpayers to Washington: Let California fail.

Which might have been OK with me, except that I LIVE here.    So I can’t agree with this adivce.   After all, we Californians paid lots of the tax money in that would be used to bail us out. (Oops, I mean, we Californians WILL PAY a lot of the tax money that will be used to repay the debt from federal borrowing for TARP.) Now, if it was, say, West Virginia that Michelle wanted to dump, that would be OK. They could recoup the difference just selling all the public monuments named after the oldest Senator.

By the way, California, vote NO on Prop 1A and 1B.  When in doubt, always vote no on propositions, especially the ones that spend money.  Trust me, we’ll still have cops and firefighters.
