The primary reason the press downplayed (or in many cases, ignored) the thousands of innocent civilian casualties in Kosovo caused by U.S./Allied bombing was simply the fact that a Democrat was the President at the time, and the MSM was simply looking out for their man. The secondary reason is that we were waging war against a Christian country and helping Muslims/terrorists. If instead a Republican President were in office at the time and the war was conducted in exactly the same manner the MSM would've taken every opportunity to emphasize the civilian dead, and we'd have been inundated with stories/pics of dead women and children non-stop. 13 posted on 08/06/2006 7:39:10 PM EDT by Mr. Mojo

True enough. The Dems are far less ideological that many believe -- they're mostly just insane party loyalists that don't give a damn about the country. To them, the acquisition and retention of power is all that matters.
If a Dem Prez closed the borders the party faithful would rave about how responsible he is in protecting us from terrorists in a time of war and protecting American jobs, where if a Pubbie Prez did the same thing he'd be branded a "racist", "isolationist," "neophobe", etc.
If a Dem Prez launched a full-scale war on Islamists and nations that finance them the party Rats would be calling him "the greatest wartime President since FDR" and of course giving him their full support, where if a GOPer did the same thing they'd be .....well, we're seeing it right now -- undermining our troops at every opportunity, comparing the President to a Nazi, etc.
They're quite predictable.
