John Hawkins on Iraq

Put Iraq in perspective:

Day after day, since we went into Iraq, the mainstream media has inundated the public with the same sort of slanted, biased coverage of the war that you'd have expected to get from Pravda at the height of the Cold War. They've been excessively negative and hysterical. They've demonized the troops, been soft on the enemy, and deliberately revealed classified programs that have probably led to the deaths of American soldiers. Indeed, just about the only way the performance of the MSM could be worse would be if they followed the lead of liberal stalwarts like Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore, who have openly spoken of the terrorists fighting our troops in Iraq as "freedom fighters" and "Minutemen." That's why, when the American public has been left to drift in this sea of gloom, it's worth taking a few moments to put things into their proper perspective.
