The second problem in the world is the one which allows the corruption to flourish...The Mainstream Media, which is totally controlled by the government, and corporate interest. We do not make this claim lightly, without reason and personal knowledge.
During one phase of our undercover investigations we worked in a high level government public relations office. We helped prepare the daily official government propaganda articles which were hand delivered to the news wire services which were in turn picked up by major newspapers and medias worldwide and reported as truth. What was reported contained basic information with a government spin designed to confuse and intimidate the general public into supporting the corrupt government.
THE ONLY STORIES ON THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WHICH ARE TRUTHFUL ARE THOSE WHICH ARE INSIGNIFICANT!!!
This practice is standard procedure and is never questioned by the Mainstream Medias or the audience....This is the problem which must be addressed or the government will always control the people and the problems of government control are only beginning...it will get much worse!!!!!

11/16/07 "ICR" No. 237, 16-Nov-07 -- Child mortality in Iraq has spiralled because of the tense security situation, deteriorating health services and lack of medical supplies, say experts.
According to a report released in May 2007 by aid agency Save the Children, “Iraq’s child mortality rate has increased by a staggering 150 per cent since 1990, more than any other country.”
The report, entitled State of the World’s Mothers 2007, said that some 122,000 Iraqi children - the equivalent of one in eight - died in 2005, before reaching their fifth birthday. More than half of the deaths were among newborn babies in their first month of life.
IJ NOTE: There is no doubt by any rational, half intelligent person that this suffering is caused by the US obsession with oil as a means to live the American Dream and remain world superpower.
Knowing that, take a look around you right now and just try to find one item in the room which was not created or delivered by the use of oil. Now, who`s fault is it that these Iraqi kids are suffering and dying???
A better question; What are you going to do about it???
