American Propaganda Machine Engages in Information Warfare... News @.......
20 Oct 2001
War of words fought at home and abroad for the territory of your mind.
American Propaganda Machine

To the Taliban:

'Attention. You are condemned. Did you know that? The instant the terrorists you support took over our planes, you sentenced yourselves to death'


"You will be attacked by land, sea and air... Resistance is futile,"

"The partnership of nations is here to assist the people of Afghanistan,"

``It is not you, the honorable people of Afghanistan, who are targeted, but those who would oppress you, seek to bend you to their own will and make you their slaves,''

"You have only one choice ... Surrender now."


"The Partnership of Nations is here to help.", "The Partnership if Nations is here to assist the people of Afghanistan."

To The American People:

"I want to assure the loved ones that the soldiers died in a cause that is just and right, and that we will prevail," Bush said.

"We will prevail."

"We received knowledge that perhaps an Al Qaeda operative was prepared to use a crop duster to spray a biological weapon or a chemical weapon on American people, and so we responded. We contacted every crop dust location, airports from which crop dusters leave. We notified crop duster manufacturers to a potential threat. We knew full well that in order for a crop duster to become a weapon of mass destruction would require a retrofitting, and so we talked to machine shops around where crop dusters are located."


"The United States of America is a friend to the Afghan people, and we are the friends of almost a billion worldwide who practice the Islamic faith." --Bush

"We're a peaceful nation."



FACT:
The food dropped is described like this:

"They have a picture of a person eating from the pouch, a stencil of Old Glory and the greeting: "This food is a gift from the United States of America."

FACT:

"Since the time of the Soviet invasion, Afghanistan has been a country in conflict. War and strife have been a constant part of the daily life of its citizens. Yet time and again, it has not been the people of Afghanistan, but outsiders who have been the real cause of this pain and destruction." --cnn



u·ni·lat·er·al·ism (yn-ltr--lzm)
n.
A tendency of nations to conduct their foreign affairs individualistically, characterized by minimal consultation and involvement with other nations, even their allies.
