I may have to go back to school. I really do not comprehend the level of analysis in US media. I heard a number of officials and journalists today asserting that the bombing in Baghdad is a sign that the US is winning in its efforts in Iraq. What am I missing. And then I was treated to a "debate" on CNN: on the one side was a journalist from Wall Street Journal and on the other (ostensibly leftist side) was the editor of the New Republic. The New Republic, which supported the first Gulf War, the Bosina war, the recent Iraq war, the Afghanistan war, and every war ever launched by Israel? And the one which would love to have the US go to war against Syria and Iran? This is the range of debate in US media.
