Engaging in the banalities of life has become a death-defying act

AAPP: These men appear to have been men of character unlike Gen. Betray Us and his bogus "see through" effort to Buy Bush More Time for his Vietnam like/Bush War on Iraq Strategy.

"Engaging in the banalities of life has become a death-defying act," the seven soldiers wrote of the war they had seen in Iraq .

They were referring to the ordeals of Iraqi citizens, trying to go about their lives with death and suffering all around them. But sadly, although they did not know it at the time, they might almost have been referring to themselves.

Bush has made Petraeus the arbiter of Iraq policy when it should be set by the President.

Now to the weak men. As Democracy Now reports, "President Bush's prime time address before the nation tonight culminates a carefully orchestrated public relations campaign to win support for the continuation of the war in Iraq. The campaign began in August when a group called Freedom's Watch headed by President Bush's former spokesperson Ari Fleischer began airing pro-war television commercials. Then, President Bush flew to Iraq for an unannounced visit where he met with Iraqi leaders at a U.S. military base in Anbar province. On the eve of Sept. 11th, General David Petraeus and Ambassador David Crocker testified before Congress. Then they appeared exclusively on Fox News in what the network described as a "briefing for America." To talk more about the Bush administration's public relations campaign, John Stauber, founder of the Center for Media & Democracy and PR Watch, joins us in Madison Wisconsin."
