IRAN: U.S. to Beam TV Show to Iran From Washington
Drudge Report - Washington Post ^ | Thursday, July 3, 2003 | Mike Allen

Posted on 07/03/2003 8:48:33 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

The U.S. government plans to launch a Persian-language television newscast in Iran on Sunday as the Bush administration continues to encourage internal dissent against the ruling clerics, administration officials said yesterday.

The Voice of America program, to be announced today, will be sent from Washington by satellite to avoid the jamming that has interfered with U.S. government radio programs aimed at the Iranian people.

Excellent news. I know it might not have that much significance, but every small thing added to give hope to the protestors must be praised.

They need to take the North American Confederacy approach and beam freedom propaganda into Iran with such power that their bedsprings broadcast audio.

Let's hope it's a real American newscast, with big boobs, big hair, big teeth and lots of good news about recent court decisions on legalizing sodomy, the availability of partial birth abortion and how we have pornography and drugs coming out the wazoo. That ought to have 'em waving the Stars and Stripes in the streets.

If you can't beat 'em, corrupt 'em.

Although, I wouldn't have worded it exactly that way, I think you're on to something.

What the Middle East needs is battalions of gorgeous women in thongs.

They have been beaming Baywatch into Germany since the beginning and all it's done is turn David Hasselhoff into an international music and TV star. That's not the result the Corporation was looking for...

I just hope that this broadcast is done better than the Voice or America or Farda...

The editorial board of these bradcasts, according to the Iranian Broadcasters in LA, is soupporting the so called reform movement, ala Khatami. Khatami, the so called president of Iran is disliked as much as their "supreme leader, Khamenei. Both are mullahs wanting to keep the nation an Islamic republic, something the people overwhelmingly reject.

Changing the Middle East, one tyrant at a time. Well, perhaps more than one at a time. I'm sure that a number of leaders have soiled the bedsheets they wear.

While in the neighborhood, America should beam those signals all over Iraq, too.

But first ... Let's make sure it is wholesome American programming: material without the liberal agenda attached.

No kidding...
I don't understand how we can perform militarily so well and yet be so inept at post war efforts such as broacasting our ideas and news to the Iraqi people....
It is hard, almost impossible to understand....

You must understand that the DoS is riddled with one-worlders and crypto communists who do NOT want to see American values prevail.
