Media continues to enable terrorists

The AP still refuses to call terrorism by its name.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A suicide attacker slammed a truck loaded with explosives into sand barriers outside a Baghdad police station Sunday, killing at least 22 people and wounding 30, police said.
The attacker detonated his charge at the Rashad police station in the eastern neighborhood of Mashtal around 2:50 p.m., said Capt. Mahir Abdul Satar.
Most of the 22 killed were civilians, police Col. Ala'a Salih said.
When the vast majority of your victims of a single attack are civilians, you're a terrorist. Pity the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge this. But make no mistake: Until the side that supposedly represents the good guys begins to act like the other guys are bad, you can expect to see these terrorist attacks continue for a very, very long time.
Our enemies are apparently "bombers" and "attackers." Just like us. Get it? You can scan the AP's report for yourself, but you won't find any reference to terrorists or murderers. These terms, you see, are reserved for their proper occasion, when U.S. troops attack.
Cynical, yes. But accurate.Posted by USAdave at July 26, 2005 06:51 AM
