A LETTER FROM AN AMERICAN FRIEND
08 Nov 2001
I sent a photo to a friend in San Francisco -it's a man and his grand-child crying because of the kidnapping of his wife by slave dealers in the Iranian border.Here is his reply...
...an example of Manufactured Consent?
I sent a photograph to an american friend ... It's a man and his grand-child crying because of the kidnapping of his wife by slave dealers in the Iranian border... I thought my american friend would understand.. My friend works with minority groups in the west-coast of the US, my friend is a psychologist deeply moved by people's pains... This is his reply...All I could think of, was that his opinion had been shaped, distorted, deformed, conformed by the American Media. How many people in the US share his thoughts, I wonder.

..please don't send me pictures like that, have u seen any of people
crying at the world trade center? i totally support the us effort to end
terrorism. whatever casualties are happening are the fault of the taliban
for not handing bin ladin over. the entire world is involved in this.
it is unfortunate and horrific that innocent people are being killed, but
this is a really big thing, and the freedom of the world depends on it.
whether others like it or not, the u.s. takes a role in monitoring freedom
the world over, and they may exploit others in order to ensure freedom,
nothing and no regime is perfect, but this is the best one in the world, and
i have traveled extensively and know this to be true. whatever is behind
this war, oil, money whatever, nothing changes the fact that over 5000 people
were killed by a psychotic islamic fundamentalist. this is not ok, and i
really think we must defend against this sort of thing.
