Post Post subject: Cheering our soldiers back from Afghanistan Reply with quote

Anglia TV, BBC Look East, the East Anglian Daily Times and most other local papers are all happy to dish up the unvarnished lie, without the slightest hesitation, that the East Anglian regiment must be cheered by everyone for doing such a splendid job defending the country against the wicked Taliban.

They and those who cheer appear to ignore the truth that the Taliban pose no serious threat to Britain. Their war is a complete waste of life, death and suffering for both the soldiers themselves and the innocent civilians they inevitably target. Why does no so-called journalist ever ask how many Afghan children did the regiment kill?

It was the same with the Iraq war. All the regional newspapers - the Eastern Daily Press, the Evening News, the East Anglian Daily Times and the Evening Star - backed it to the hilt. This was and continues to be very unnerving considering that the majority of the population actually opposed the war - an illegal, unprovoked act of aggression, let's not forget.

However, while those who edit and write for the individual newspapers might think they are free to write what they like, this 100 per cent support for the war across the four newspapers is perhaps not so surprising when you realise Archant own all of them!

Hi Piero

A while ago I wrote an essay about the EDP/Archant/Iraq that might be of interest to you. Here is the link:

Just look at all the radicals on the company website's 'Executives' and 'Board Members' pages:

Hope that helps.
