Two US Marines are listening to the radio in Iraq.
“American soldiers,” coos a soft female voice, “Your so-called national Leaders have lied to you. You are needlessly risking your lives to wage A useless, unjust, illegal, and unwinnable war. Now is the time to return home to your loved ones, while you are still alive. If you foolishly insist on remaining where you are not wanted, the brave resistance fighters will have no choice but to kill you and add your name to the long ever-increasing casualty list of this insane war. So why risk never seeing your loved ones again for a so-called president who has repeatedly lied and deceived you at every opportunity? Why should you be sacrificed so that US corporations can enjoy fatter profits? The only wise thing to do is return home now, while you are still drawing breath, before you return zippered into a bodybag.”
“What’s this?” sneers one Marine. “An Islamo-terrorist version of Tokyo Rose?”
“No,” answers the other. “It’s just CNN!”
I’m no fan of the war, but that’s just funny.Ã‚Â And perhaps a bit too accurate a portrayal of CNN.
