Just a few weeks back there was this war in Iraq - thousands dead on both sides, no hope. We have heard about it on CNN for years now.
Last week a skirmish between Israel and Hezbollah broke out - two Israeli hostages (can a uniformed soldier be a hostsage?) - hundreds dead, no hope. Since the latest outbreak CNN and the other so-called US media have ceased all reporting on Iraq. Just like that.
There is specualtion that the November elections in the US may be one reason that the US and Israel have inspired this new conflict.
Sometimes the whims of the US really are just too much.
