    "Iraqis March Against Terror: There was a protest march of Iraqis against terror on July 5th. You probably haven't heard about it..."

    "QAYARRAH, Iraq: Citizens of the southern city of Qayarrah, of the northern province of Ninewah, gather to demonstrate their defiance against terrorism during the March Against Terror. Over 1,000 Iraqi citizens, including several influential political and religious leaders, marched alongside Iraqi Army and police officers in this first of several such demonstrations planned for the northern region of Iraq."

    Not on ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN! Why? More than likely: they were covering the alleged abuse of their beloved terrorists at Gitmo! Based on the liberal media out to win the War on Terror for the terrorist's side: America has already lost since the Fifth Estate seems to work for Al Qaeda!

    I bet you got all wound up when the media covered anti-war rallies here in the States that had about 1000 people show up saying it was such a small crowd why cover it

    Right ?

    Question: Are American reporters allowed to travel to Qayarrah without military protection?

    Hell, let's get Drudge, Little Green Footballs et al out there. I'm sure they'll be happy to cover whatever the MSM won't.

    Just of of curiosity, is CNN considered liberal in the US?

    BTW IntheNet, you haven't answered my question why the IRA can't be considered terrorists.

    I'm sure they are allowed

    Should they ? That's a different question

    Well of course they're allowed. I mean, Iraq is a free country now, isn't it???

    Definitely, the question is one of safety and in my opinion, no reporter for any of the major networks is going to risk life and limb outside the Green Zone. It's just too dangerous.

    Don't worry. I wouldn't generalise from one extremist to a whole religious group.

    I tend to think of you as the Judas of the Disciple set; why is that you think? And check the spelling, your Modship, of that idealogy which you allege to know so well: It's Catholicism!

    Just curious how you tie this slam at Catholics in with the liberal media: the genre of this post?

    No I wasn't. I was just suggesting that ItN might not consider the IRA terrorist cos they are catholics.

    Spelling smack-talk. The refuge of the truly weak poster...

    Actually, IntheNet isn't Catholic. He's been caught out in that lie several times. Here's a link to one of them.

    https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=196719&page=2

    I realize you're not slamming Catholicism, nor are you alleging that all Catholics are terrorist. I'm just pointing out that ItN isn't Catholic, though several people take him to be, much to the embarrassment of bigsoccer's Catholics of all political stripes.

    Oops, I spelled Catholicism wrong, that'll be three hail mary's and one our father.

    You think think of me anyway you want, I will continue to think of you as the liar that pretends he's Catholic.

    I don't tie them in what so ever.

    Pretty much what I was saying - you were talking in relation to the IRA, not ITN

    Our Catechism (the Baltimore) also capitalizes both of these; i.e., Hail Mary and the Our Father... that's basic stuff nonetheless... keep going Dante... I'm winning my argument by your every reply! ;)
