Company Gets Contract

I was reading the New York Times yesterday, and came across a very interesting article.

A company has received another contract, despite the fact that they paid Iraqi newspapers to print "postive" articles about the military forces in Iraq. Can't say that I'm surprised by this because what else is new!! This public relations firm paid newspapers to write positive articles. PAID!! They didn't ask!! They paid!! Sounds like bribery to me.

"The idea, according to contract documents, is to use the information to “build support” in Iraqi, Arab, international and American audiences for what the military describes as its goals in Iraq, such as destroying the insurgency and helping Iraqis build a democracy."

Build support? Now why would you need to do that? Aren't you doing the right thing? Aren't you doing the moral thing? Doesn't everyone like you? Doesn't everyone agree with you? Why would you need to pay someone to write positive articles about you to gain support for what you're doing in Iraq if you're not doing anything negative or illegal? I could pay anyone I wanted to and have them write or say something positive about me. It doesn't make it so!! Get it through your thick heads!! NOBODY SUPPORTS THE IRAQ WAR EXCEPT BRAINDEAD IDIOTS AND THUGS!! YOU CAN PAY ANYONE YOU WANT TO WRITE POSITIVE MESSAGES ABOUT WHAT TROOPS ARE DOING. THERE'S NOTHING POSITIVE ABOUT THIS WAR, AND NO MONEY IN THE WORLD IS GOING TO CHANGE THAT!!

Hey, while you're at it, pay someone to try to put a positive spin on the rape and murder of that Iraqi girl and her family that US troops are now charged for. I'm sure you could find some way to justify that in a positive light!!
