    So, why not use it as a propaganda tool. Right?

    Perhaps the Libs should launch a show about Obama that shows him to be a great president. He could use all the propaganda he can get

The suspect was injured and arrested by private security hired to guard the embassy but not before one security guard was shot and one security guard received burns from the explosion.

    Lakki Marwat, Pakistan A suicide car bomber drove his explosive-laden vehicle into a volleyball pitch as people gathered to watch a match.

    Kabul, Afghanistan A suicide bomber detonated in an area including a shopping centre, guest house and hotel in the Afghan capital, with gunfire heard after at least two blasts.

    Baghdad, Iraq Three attacks occurred in Baghdad. The first incident involved a mortar attack on a crowded market. Two suicide bombers then detonated in different areas of the city. It is known that polling stations were the target in both of these suicide attacks. These attacks come as voting occurs on the first day of voting in Iraq's parliamentary elections.

    Israel Netiv Ha’asara area, Israel A Thai greenhouse worker was killed when a Kassam rocket fired by Gaza militants exploded in the moshav where he was working. An al-Qaida-inspired small Islamist faction called Ansar al-Sunna claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Khyber, Pakistan Militants attacked a Pakistani Frontier Corps camp in the tribal region of Khyber in north-western Pakistan. It has been reported that dozens of militants assaulted the camp after a suicide car bomber blew a hole in one of its walls.

    Baghdad, Iraq Three suicide car bombers hit in the centre of Iraq's capital city, Baghdad. One explosion reportedly occurred near to the Iranian embassy whereas the other two explosions were detonated in the west-central Mansour district within the city. The Islamic State of Iraq claimed responsibility for the attacks. It has also been reported that at least one of these blasts struck near to the offices of a pro-Iranian politician, Ahmed Chalabi.

    what shows and what exactly was the influence? most of the liberals today still think poorly of the vietnam war and hold the deserters and draft dodgers up as heros, much like they did in the 70s. I think you are barking up the wrong tree on this one.

    Not at all. There are numerous studies that have shown how TV has influenced beliefs over the years. It is a powerful medium that can be easily misused to control the masses.

    There is clear evidence that the rise of television availability during the early 70's and the coverage of the Tet offensive was responsible for a radical shift in American attitudes against the US Involvement in Vietnam.

    Why do you think that they fight so hard to keep the media from showing pictures of caskets with American soldiers returning home?

    Re: Katie Couric... "we need a muslim Cosby Show".

    This thread, for the most part, only proves her point. Unfortunately, I think we have a long way to go as a society before a "Muslim Cosby Show" would be a plausible idea. The views many have of Muslims are simply too vitriolic at this point for something like that to work.

    Just out of curiosity, for those who are bashing Muslims... How many Muslims (American Muslims included) do you know personally or have you talked to? Or are you basing your views on the extreme examples brought forth by the media? It's far easier to make hateful sweeping judgments about entire groups of people than it is to find out the truth on a deeper level and realize just how absurdly wrong you were.

    I know MANY...and have lived with them and worked with them and dont bash 'Muslims.' I do bash morons who think a cartoony sitcom will make everything all better or who pretend like there isnt a SIGNIFICANT number of extremists that dont fit that crtoony little model.

    I think there's been a Muslim Cosby show, of sorts, way back in '79...

    But it will undo the very real idea that that video represents EVERYBODY in the Muslim faith [which kinda was the whole idea - not to discount the violence like you /seem/ to believe].
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    I WANT people to remain vigilant....to be MORE vigilant regarding those 'few' Muslims that continue slaughter innocent men women andf children on a regular basis. If the Muslims wont take a louder voice then the shame is on them.

    And again...I LAUGH at the idiots that rush to defend 'Muslims'...especially the ones here that rush to deride virtually all other religions. The kneejerk defense of a religion that so specifically opposes (in some places unto death) things like homosexuality...womens rights...women...oh I dont know...reading...

    No...NOT ALL MUSLIMS...but until there is more Muslims rushing to END the violence in their name than rushing to JOIN them...well...sorry...you STILL have to deal with this...
