Iraq - CNN Kisses Preznitential Tuchus

What else can one term this disgustingly sycophantic report? Why aren't they asking why the Preznitwit has to sneak in and out of Iraq, if the surge is so workingly working? Why no mention of the number of dead, the number of wounded, the vets who come back to homelessness and bankruptcy and failed marriages and ruined family life? About the skyrocketing suicide rates and PTSD undiagnosed and untreated cases?

And what does this mean:
President Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq Monday, saying fewer U.S. forces may be able to maintain security there at its current level.
Is this the end of "Teh Surge?" Is this the beginning of the phased withdrawal that Commander AWOL von Bunnypants assured those (cretinous 25%) who still support him would never happen?

And why doesn't CNN bother to mention that the military is, essentially, broken, that Stupie McPoopie can't deploy any more soldiers without instituting a draft, because everyone's been deployed up to the very limit? Context is everything, you dumb motherfuckers.

How about some real journalism, CNN, you miserable assholes? Oh, right, that wouldn't serve your corporate masters and advertisers. Nobody wants to hear or read about the suffering that the average military enlistee goes through, that the average Iraqi goes through. Instead, Commander Bunnypants gets to ponce around with a handpicked audience of mouthbreathers and never has to meet with people who might disagree with him.

We are sowing the wind and we will reap the whirlwind. Thousands of troops returning from the Iraq conflict are suffering from PTSD, often undiagnosed and untreated. When they snap, they'll be taking out civilians all over the country, beginning with their families, friends, and neighbours.

Gads, this whole thing makes me sick to my soul.
