    From CNN.com:
    What the hell am I missing? How in the world did CNN obtain these so called 'secret documents'? Is it just me, or does the media just want to just go ahead and write a blue-print for war for us? Hell, we don't need all the cabinent members, security council workers, armed forces seargents and generals, do we? All they need to do is turn on the local TV, and let the media plan everything for them! The terrorists and any 'bad person' have it easy, there's no secrets and and our 'element of surprise' is all but gone.

    I'm young, so I don't know how it was with WWII or Vietnam, but this is shocking. If I remember correctly, my mom woke me up about 5AM and told me we went to war in Iraq with Desert Storm - and if I remember further, nothing was on the news about it before-hand.

    What would you do right now if you were Sadam? Would you really be in Iraq? As you know what's going to be on every single FRONT PAGE IN THE WORLD, 'US House Approves Military Action' ...

    I'm sorry, I'm tired and my wife and I agree - we're both sick of the media. Let the military do what they need to do in peace.

    Off my soapbox now...

    Wag the Dog? Wasn't that a movie about the media creating a war? I don't even listen to most the stuff the media utters. They make everything into a racial life and death situation that blows everything, and I mean everything, way out of proportion.
