Why not World Wide War?

Fox News on Sunday stated a Muslim website claimed involvement in Beslan. However, nothing more today.

I also fired off an email to FOX to express my outrage. Many things in life have angered me, but none will equal not only the evil deeds done on innocent children by this cabal of offal, but this network's PC-girly-coverage of what 'really' happened to them. (We wouldn't want to wake up the andorid sheep in this country about what is at stake--a sensitive war is not one of the options--or that schools here are soft targets; or offend the Milquetoast Left; or some Muslims, you know, from the Religion of Peace---their silence in this country, let along elsewhere has been deafening!) A blogger came to the point:

If ANY ethnic group doesn't wish to be "profiled" and judged by the worst of their group --- they had better take action to distinquish themselves as part of the SOLUTION instead of the PROBLEM.

The best the network could come up with to describe what happened: deaths, militants. Cavuto at least used the word Terrorist. All the while numbing our minds with their silly breathless non-stop 'Florida Storm-a-rama 2004' nonsense...with no letup today...geez!!, Clinton surgery, etc..

I encourage all of you to contact them if you feel a protest is in order. Somebody, I don't recall the source, put news coverage in perspective:

The institutional reluctance of the press to render judgment over what values or conclusions serve the greater good is intentional.

To be literal, it’s called obscurantism: the practice of delivering vague truths and hiding key facts, with-holding information from the public and lying through selective omission.

I wrote to them Saturday. To waste all the time they did on Geraldo's dramatic reporting on the "masterful" steering of the sailboat in the hurricane--when in fact it wasn't being steered at all, it was anchored at sea--was just infuriating.

Note to Fox: Furthermore, maybe videos of rain and wind ad nauseum are your idea of covering the news--but to some of us, it looks lazy, unimaginative, and repititious. There was other news afoot, but all we saw was Frances, with small bits about heart surgery slipped in here and there.

Pitiful, for a news channel.

Thank you.
We must never forget!
Clinton cut a deal at Oslo to 'forgive' these murders
However, the terrorist died of 'natural causes'while in captivity. :)
Throwing cripples overboard ships
shooting children
Allah be praised!

What you said! I cannot fathom the non stop Frances whilst these people bury their dead. Imagine if that had happened for 911

"Flags are flying at half-mast, and all television entertainment programmes have been cancelled." --BBC News

I respect the Russian people for that.

Here in America 3,000 people can die from terrorists, but Hollywood has to go on with the show.

Hollywood must be one of the plagues.

Considering the 80,000 plus American KIAs and 250,000 battle wounded in Korea and Vietnam alone, I'd DEFINITELY call the Cold War WWIII.

Refresh my memory of the Bosnian air war Clinton fought
Don't forget the ground war. Clinton bypassed Wolsey in the CIA and sent almost a $billion to Iran to buy arms that were sent back through Croatia to our lovely Mujahedeen friends in Bosnia. He broke the UN arms embargo. He was not ownly our first black president, he was our first Muslim president.
