Sex, Lies, and Roadside Bombings!
There is no way you can escape hearing that the American death toll has reached 3,000. The news media has held their breath long enough for the number to reach 3,000 and now they are reminding everyone how many soldiers we have lost in the Iraq war. Congressmen grimace as they shake their heads in blame. Senators scramble to be the first to proclaim that America is losing the Iraq war. Protesters light candles and wear armbands to show their support of withdrawing our troops, and casting blame on the president for ever daring to protect the citizens from terrorist attacks on our own soil.
It must be devastating to the families of soldiers killed in the line of duty. Giving everything they had in the greatest of sacrifices. This selfless act demands the respect of all Americans. Every single soldier lost on the battlefield is a sacrifice in the name of freedom. Freedom is not cheap; it is paid for with the blood of our fallen.
All we ever hear from the media is how horrible the war is going. How we are losing this war, how we should have never invaded Iraq. How much we underestimated such a vicious enemy.
The media has acted for the benefit of our enemy as a propaganda machine doing everything in its power to make the American people believe we are losing this war. The national media market has portrayed the American soldier as a barbaric thug, killing innocent Iraqi citizens in an illegal war designed to profit from the regions oil supplies.
The media wants you to believe we are losing this war, crunching numbers to highlight all the negative realities of war, without showing any positive influences we have had during this war.
3,000 troops Dead!!!

The American media needs to start reporting the truth, whatever the truth may be. The fact is that the American citizen is a lot smarter than the spin doctors of the out of control media, and we are just about fed up with all the lies.
Report the news or get out of the business.
