Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    US troops now used as propaganda tools

    In an obvious sign that US troops are being used to fight a propaganda battle, forces have been equipped with cans of spray paint, to spray over any grafitti they happen to see, which does not fit into their way of thinking. The graffiti come from a variety of sources, Staff Sgt. Bryce Rigby said. “Most of it is kids,” he said. “You can tell it’s kids because they misspell words [and] the kids write things like ‘down USA.’” Erm, just a minute, but don't the occupation forces know that english is not the Iraqis first language?

    The soldiers stopped at two graffiti-strewn walls during their patrol Sunday to spray paint out various messages. Both were near small mom-and-pop shops.
    Can someone please tell me what "mom and pop" shops are?

    You are a real dreamer huh?

    Just a bit of realism for you....All wars are rought with propaganda. All governments use propaganda. And yes, even Weblogs have just a little propaganda they like to spew as well. You seem to think it was all invented in Crawford, Texas though.

    Does this article seem to justify your assumptions from the other day? Is graffiti torture too? Hehehehe.

    (Mom and Pop stores = any independently owned shop that has nothing to do with some big corporation.)

    Thanks for letting me know what "mom and pop" shops are, such a quaint little term.
