Fool’s paradise

The Anglo occupation of Iraq continues and will not end for the foreseeable future. Iraqi dissident Haifa Zangana (more here) explains why the occupation will never succeed, and the resistance must continue. For the embedded Western media, however, President Bush has rediscovered his “mojo”.

This is not journalism; it’s stenography without an ounce of critical thought. Zangana explains:

Occupiers choose to see the people in the occupied country through their handmade filters. Occupiers often speak a different language to those occupied. Their power is an amalgam of military might, arrogance and ignorance, and this has manifested itself openly during Bush’s visit to the green zone.

The media were happy to oblige this fiction.
