    We are the prisoners of a pro-war extremist media and a political system that has a history of spin and lies.

    As Amy Goodman said in a 2-hour interview on Cspan last night. The Media is not "mainstream" it's present "an extremist point of view.

    One example given was about a FAIR survey of all the talking heads and guests on corporate TV in a two week period surrounding the lies by Powell to the UN, just prior to the last war on Iraq. Of the 300+ experts, all were pro-war except for  three, and this was at a time that when the country was mostly devided evenly on the Iraq war issue.

    I often speak out strongly against war on this site. Many to not like my criticism of American war crimes. I am often viewed, it seems, as un-American. I think that as someone who served in combat 24-hours a day for more than half a year--without ever an hour off, it's probably easier for me to be critical of all American war-mongering.

    War is costly. Peace is priceless!
