Thanks for the reply.  I had some trouble sending this email off due to
problems at sharechat.  I have heard the tank cannon story now.  You must
remember, most of us live in NZ.  It takes a while to get here sometimes!

As for the rest, let's leave it to another day - wrong forum.  Suffice to
say at this stage that as much as you may have laughed at my suggestion CNN
was biased, I too chuckled at your suggestion that USA was defending itself.
The measure of Iraq's resistance should show that they surely weren't a
serious threat?

doing was defending ourselves against a very dangerous enemy that was on the
verge of obtaining atomic weapons and curretly financing terrorists which
would shortly be attacking us.  The freedom the Iraqi's will eventually
enjoy was a bonus benefit of this self defense activity.  Just because we
dubbed it Operation Iraqi Freedom does not mean that this was the primary
> CNN -- a puppet of the American Government??????????????
> CNN is the baby of Ted "the red" (Ted Turner)  Very anti-Bush,
anti-administration, very left and at sometimes anti-American.  I actually
had an uncontrollable laugh when I read your statement.  CNN is notoriously
at odds with our government, at least any Republican administration.  He
called Ruppert Murdock a Nazi.
> I don't know what stations you have been watching, but I've seen thousands
of Iraqi's dancing in the streets, not just 300.  We've seen more than 300
celebrating right here in San Diego, since we have a rather large Iraqi
community.  Dearborn Michigan has even a larger one and more than 1,000
Iraqi's danced in the streets there.
> Al Jazeera is still broadcasting and has been.  It has also shown Iraqi's
dancing in the streets after the fall of Baghdad.  However, Al Jazeera
coverage was so anti-American prior to that time that Iraqi's chased their
reporters out of Basra, all the way to the Kuwaiti border, because of their
distorted coverage  prior to the fall of Baghdad.
> Lastly, your news is not only inacurate, but out of date.  It was first
thought that an American tank shot a Tank shell at Al Jazerra and killed and
injured some of their people.  Upon investigation, and after inspection it
was found that not only would a tank shell not have inflicted the damage
that was done, but that the tank cannon would have had to shoot around a
corner.  This is not just BS.
> Our Iraqi's here in San Diego are very happy, although we did have a very
small demonstration on the other side yesterday.  It was truly small.  Our
locals, which are legion are celebrating.  Let's give this a couple of
months and revisit the topic.
