i live in central texas and cannot believe the lack of attention our troops are getting in afganistan. in my local paper and on the news,radio and tv, there has not been a single word about afganistan in about two weeks. i do not want reports of details that give away security of our troops. it is like the whole thing didn't/isn't happening. what happened to 'never forget'?

They forgot.

Too busy with the Isreali, Palestinian thing. Other peoples wars are more important than our own. The one good thing about it is that if the media doesn't tell us about soldiers dieing, the whiners/protestors have far less ammunition. I think that this is anything but forgotten to the people who understand it, for the rest of the little sheepies, it is back to what the media wants them to think.

The media are allowed to take pics in Israel for sensationalism. Therefore it is more "News Worthy"

There is a concerted effort by the media to keep any "pro-Bush" news out of the public eye for a while. They're tired of 80%+ approval ratings. Anyone know what the latest numbers are for Bush? I strongly believe they are dropping. I'm hearing/seeing increasing criticism and ridicule of him, and fewer people are talking about his achievements and hard work.

I live in West Texas and I have not forgotten. I put my flag out an hour after the second jet struck the WTC and it is still flying. I think I will keep it up at least until the entire WTC area has been cleaned up. Edited because I can't spell.

I have no idea, but I am interested as well. Consider this response a BTT... with the question... Anthrax, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week on all the news channels, now nothing... notta... not even a damned rumor. If I were the sort to believe in conspiracies...

No, the media (TV) don't show it much because there isn't much to show. Since a picture is worth a thousand words they go with what they have pictures of, Israel/Palestine conflict. The U.S. military needs to learn to work with the camera people instead of locking them out. Then we would see more of what's going on.

Just heard that anyone who uses the US mail can now be considered a terrorist.

Yahoo/Reuters reported that the latest poll shows Bush's foreign-policy approval rating is down to 65% now. (Also, 60% of Americans favor terminating all foreign-aid money to Israel.)

Say what now?! As for the topic, remember who owns most of the media outlets. They wouldn't have an agenda to push would they? [beer] to the Troops.

This brought back some great memories, although my memory fails me sometimes. It was either in the late 70s or early 80s that I had an opportunity to meet Ray Nitschke in a restaurant in Greensboro. Alas, the restaurant and one of my early heroes is now gone. Some of my faint memory remains. He didn't want that ring to leave his hand but my friend Earl cajoled him into it. The ring did not leave our adjoining table, nor did it leave his sight! This is the man I saw that night "Off the field, he was a gentle giant. In his dark horn-rimmed glasses and traditional business suit, he was thoughtful, intelligent, and soft-hearted, traits that his opponents rarely, if ever, saw."
