CNN did a tear jerking piece about Israeli Soldier killed by Hezbollah..
It went to his farm and talked to his family and friends. He bred exotic fish and they showed the fish tank where they said the soldier knew the names and colors of each fish. He was a kind and gentle soul...it just about had me in tears...until I remembered.

Has anyone seen CNN do a recent feature on any soldiers who have died in Iraq? Does it not seem odd to do a whole segment with interviews on an Israeli soldier who died when so many others are dying in this CRISIS in the ME?

The piece was very sad...and I feel badly for this soldier's death but there are heartbreaking stories from all the soldiers that are dying over there because of George Bush and the NeoCon's wet dreams!

1. Yes, I saw that one
What a tragic waste and his was just one example. So many senseless losses in so many senseless wars.

2. You know, "special relationship"
Israelis are just like us while Muslims are nameless and faceless terrorists with 4 days facial growth.

3. CNNI was on from 12-1pm with it's much better balanced coverage
Fair but tough questions for an Israeli PR person. But now it's back to normal. Is there any schedule to show when CNNI will be on? It seems unpredictable.

4. Our soldiers in Iraq are irrelevant cannon fodder.
You aren't supposed to even THINK about our soldiers in Iraq, fighting an illegal war.

Israel is what we are supposed to care about above everything else.

5. I saw it and started to
puke. They ignore all families that do not help their spin on things including the families of US soliders killed by bushcos lies. I'd drop dead if they interviewed the widow or family of a slaughtered Palestinian or Lebanese.

8. sure
feel bad for the poor israeli soldier, who probably got killed in a tank - with an anti-tank missile- while he was trying to destroy many civilian homes and hurt more lives around him. Ofcourse CNN wouldn't show that.

9. big fucking deal...
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 12:33 PM by madrchsod
what is a big fucking deal is a little girl who died in a drive by shooting in chicago the other day. she was playing in a relatives basement when a bullet went thru the window and into her brain. that`s what fucking pisses me off not some soldier somewhere. we are killing enough children in our own country and i think we should worry about our own
