Niteline and Mind Control

I was just watching Niteline and noticed their piece on Saddam. They got at least 12 suits with foreign accents to tell the cameras just how erratic and dangerous we're being led to believe. "Just how dangerous is Saddam?" asked the reporter. Promptly, they showed at least six europeans giving sentence blips saying either a) he won't step down, or b) he wants to use any means necessary to destroy the US. Of course, they didn't show their names or go to any measure to establish crediblity.I was just watching Niteline and noticed their piece on Saddam.

Clearly this is an attempt to dispell the fear of acting unilaterally to the American public (they did not address unilateral action specifically throughout the "report," they want us to feel like we're drawing our own conclusions I guess).

You can personally counteract this poison by telling allof your friends to read The Guardian, The Times or any of the sane newspapers from europe that are in english.

This article cor example:

http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0115-01.htm

Was published by The Times, and now has spread all over the net [google.com] , because people are talking about it. YOU need to talk about it, go to the times, find the original, and send it to everyone you know.

This type of action will help counter the poison that comes out of the American news media, which is regularly trashed here in europe for its bias.

Dont despair, its pointless. Sending links in email is powerful and makes a BIG difference.
