WE REPORT: YOU DECIDE. WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ AND OBAMA'S TRIP TO IRAQ?

RUPERT MURDOCH not only owns FOX NEWS but he also owns the New York Post. As would be expected, the New York Post slams Barack Obama's trip to Iraq and lies to their readers about the success of "the surge." The New York Post, naturally, believes everything Republican candidate for President John McCain says about Iraq.

Following this propaganda piece in the New York Post, we present to our blog readers the REAL TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ including the latest list of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rupert Murdoch and his "news" empire continue to LIE to the American public about IRAQ through FOX NEWS and the New York Post as well as scores of other media outlets the foreign-born Rupert Murdoch owns.

We begin with the NEW YORK POSTS' propaganda piece followed by the TRUTH about Iraq from the TRUE source of events on the ground in Iraq, Iraq Today, http://warnewstoday.blogspot.com/

BARACK'S IRAQ TRIP
Posted: 4:38 amJuly 19, 2008

Barack Obama is headed for the front - including a stop in an Iraq that would look far different had Washington adopted the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's strategic imperatives.

Indeed. For the troop surge so vehemently opposed by Obama has clearly succeeded - as GOP candidate John McCain declared yesterday.

"We have succeeded in Iraq - not 'we are succeeding' - we have succeeded in Iraq," said McCain.
"The strategy has worked, and we now have the Iraqi government and military in charge of the major cities in Iraq. Al Qaeda is on [its] heels and on the run."


McCain has every good reason to be outspoken about the good news.

Back when Gen. David Petraeus and President Bush announced plans for the surge, McCain went way out on a limb and endorsed it - indeed, he'd long been pushing for precisely such a strategy.

Democrats, with Obama to the fore, predicted a military disaster and piles of American corpses. (Indeed, even many Republicans were afraid to back the Petraeus plan openly.)

But McCain, a combat veteran who's made repeated trips to the front, knew otherwise.


As for Obama, until recently he was still insisting that the surge would fail.


Now he knows otherwise - which is why his aides moved quickly to purge all signs of his earlier opposition from his campaign Web site.


Fact is, as McCain rightly notes, "If we had done what Sen. Obama wanted to do, there would be no situation to evaluate because we would've lost."


"There would be chaos," he added. "There would be an increase in sectarian violence. There would be widening Iranian influence - and we would be facing disaster."


So it's a good thing that Sen. Obama is headed for Iraq and Afghanistan. He'll probably learn something important about how the war is being conducted.


Maybe he'll even come to realize that this hard-won success is too fragile to be put at risk by a too-hasty retreat.

Something
John McCain also has understood all along.

AND THEN THERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ WHICH THE NEW YORK POST AND FOX NEWS ARE INCAPABLE OF TELLING.

THE FOLLOWING U.S. CASUALTIES AND ACTS OF VIOLENCE IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN HAPPENED ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AND STAND IN STARK CONTRAST TO THE LIES PUT FORTH BY THE NEW YORK POST AND FOX NEWS.

Casualty Reports:Army Sgt. Matthew Gobble, 24, who was injured in Afghanistan was hit by shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade during an attack by Taliban insurgents against a U.S.-led outpost near Pakistan. The shrapnel sprayed across much of Gobble’s body, his father said. “It was basically his entire left side from his head all the way down to his feet,” he said. Gobble was flown to Germany, where he underwent surgery to remove the shrapnel and repair cartilage and ligaments.

Learning how to fly a RC helicopter is a challenge within itself, and could never be fully taught over the internet or through some book. The best way to learn is to get real flying experience with an instructor at first, and then on your own later. You can find an instructor at a local RC airplane and helicopter club. RC airplane clubs are most common and exist in just about every state and country, and since most of them will have experience with planes they most likely will also know how to fly RC model helicopter s too.
