hmmm... why is it that US "journalists" can be pulled around by the nose by almost every foreign government, but distrust and completely discount their own? (at least when a Republican is in the White House)
And, the reason he was so gaunt and so thin, had nothing to do with the war or the SERBS.
He told reporter later in England, that he had had severe TB several years before and never was able to regain his normal weight.
When he was later found in England, living large and healty on the govt. teat!! He had a free housing, health care, food and a nice new car.
Who says lies about the Serbs don't pay off?
Some so-called journalist at the NT Times gets a Pulitzer for writing bogus stories about "rape camps", a British writer gets her story and pictures sent all over the world and becomes "famous" and Bosnian scam artist lives large and for FREE!
I do wonder if that female "journalist" from a British paper, who wrote his made-up sob story in Bosnia bought him the car.
I wonder about that too.
Enchante posted this reply on another thread about complete lies by so called Ny Slimes journalists.
"Just think about how many such fraudulent stories have been foisted upon the public through the years. Even now, when they know they are under more scrutiny than before, they continue to churn out such flagrantly bogus articles. They are INCORRIGIBLE."
So maybe the so called genocides/rapes etc supposedly committed by the Serbians were for the most part just lies of the Clintoonians and the NY Slimes and other fishwraps.
clinton sent Ron Brown over there to do some business with the Bosnians and his plane fellout of the air. Did herr brown want to much for his part in the deal??
Who knows, but many western companies have bought up hardwood forests, seaside land and villas, coal, silver, cadmium and lead mines, manufacturing facilities, vineyards and many other assets form the former Yugoslavia and they got them for pennies on the dollar!
Some folks made a killing off that war!
You may want to try looking for Al Gore's speech commending Halliburton for the work they did in the former Yugoslavia for the Clinton Administration under a "no-bid" contract.
Besides that money, (thanks for telling us about it), how much money did the Opecker Princes and thugs give Clinton and the Nato Pukes to do what they did.
"A big chunk of the business came in 1995, when troops were sent to Bosnia. The Army paid Brown & Root Services, a subsidiary of Halliburton, $546 million to provide logistical support for more than 20,000 American soldiers in Bosnia, Croatia, and Hungary. The company had already earned $269 million on the contract. Two years later Brown & Root received a sole-source contract worth $405 million to continue support services in Bosnia. Last year  the company won a five-year Army contract to support US peacekeeping troops in the Balkans."
Americans were caught off guard. I'm still mad about the possible phony testimony before congress about babies in incubators in Kuwait and Gulf War I.
Look what we have gotten ourselves into.
Americans unfortunately are slow to learn. Emotional stories (or better still, pictures) convey a message no priest, minister or rabbi ever could -- or would: "Let's go kick those b_st_rds' _sses!"
I don't like false news stories, but when government officials tell out-and-out lies that are unchallenged by the press we are really in bad shape. I recall a certain American general in charge of NATO in the late '90s telling some whoppers that led to air strikes against Serbia and our taking the side of the KLA in the war in Kosovo.
We can be thankful he never made it into the White House.
" Americans were caught off guard. I'm still mad about the possible phony testimony before congress about babies in incubators in Kuwait and Gulf War I.

Thank you Peter Arnett, for the post.
You're most welcome. Was it phony or not? Would you care to address that? BTW I am not Peter Arnett and generally support Bush, but I am against lies; I don't care who is telling them or selling them.
"Look what we have gotten ourselves into."
What part of ground zero is a lie?
None that I know of. I'm not talking about ground zero. That has nothing to do with the first gulf war and how we got into it. Saddam is/was bad. He invaded Kuwait. In hindsight, I don't know what the answer is. Anybody can see that we have gotten ourselves in a mess. How I wish we could have avoided Iraq (and the Balkan war) in the first place.
That being said, I want to see us come through this on the other side, see the thing through, hope the opposition doesn't completely ruin all our efforts thus far, but at the same time I know many more American lives are going to be sacrificed and changed in the process. I do not believe Bush has committed an impeachable offense, but his support is eroding, and I'm worried about the next elections because a lot, lot else is at stake.
You didn't address my point about the Kuwaiti testifying before congress. It's best that we not discuss it any more.
It was, as if just the fact that "Saddam insane" had had his troops invade Kuwait was NOT enough to get the US and her allies to push them back out.
That gal had to MAKE up stuff, unnecessarily. See what we mean.
thanks for the ping!
note to self: read later
p.s. find that Algore speech!! teehee!
As a matter of background, the Sulzbergers have had a very long and close connection with Columbia University. They attended the university. They are donors. The have a close connection with the Columbia School of Journalism, and hire some of its graduates.
For many, many years they refused to write a positive story about New York University, even when there was a big news story, because they didn't want to help Columbia's competition. (That one point finally changed, but they are still biased toward Columbia.)
Naturally they get plenty of Pulitzers, because there are all sorts of incestuous connections with the people on the Pulitzer Prize Committee. It's a very cozy backscratching club.
LOL, that's so funny to see all of a sudden - the flasher!
