power of words

This Halloween costume is fitting given the news this week. The White House has declared that it is not being defeated in Iraq; it is being defeated in the media. The Bush administration blame this defeat on ‘insurgents’ and in the dizziest of spin doctor moments Rumsfeld has declared that, ‘Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age,’ and he added that the 'enemy's weapons' are ‘blogs.’ So where does that leave people like me who love the USA but oppose the war in Iraq and want to say so on blogs? I guess it leaves us silenced — that is if we know what is good for us!
