Fox Attacks Iran [VIDEO]
I remember very clearly the daily fear attack, led by Fox, as they cheered for war with Iraq. The 24/7 images, sound effects, yelling and threatening were constant and building.
We had to go to war, and we had to go now, and anyone who didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see it this way, was a traitor. There was fierce harassment, on those of us who resisted the demand for this invasion and occupation. We were taunted, demonized and viciously attacked.
With the disaster, that was the Iraq War, I assumed those days were behind us. Sad to say, we have collected over five hours of footage, over the course of four months, from April through August 2007, of Fox once again, scaring, threatening, distorting and working 24/7 to serve as the mouthpiece for those in the administration, who want war with Iran. Will the media follow along as they did with Iraq?
This time itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s different, for we have all seen the terrible tragedy and the awful price paid, with so many Iraqi and American lives. This time we know what is coming. This time we have proper warning, and we have ways to tell the story as it is unfolding.
With Fox Attacks: Iran we document, record and provide evidence, of the war mongering and scare tactics. This time we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait till after the fact! We begin now, to raise the cry, loud and clear.
We cannot let history repeat itself!
