by Tony Peyser

When did the mainstream media
Collectively decide to shrivel more
And all agree to never admit
That Iraq has become a civil war?

There is a sort of conventional "wisdom" among some people who are against the chaos and confusion of an occupation that gets more nightmarish by the minute, that a forced conscription would end the war quickly. These same people see it as a panacea to get the college students and their parents out protesting, like during the Vietnam war.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Larry Beinhart, author of Wag the Dog and Fog Facts

BuzzFlash Note: Look for the next Mailbag to appear Monday.

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Let's Give Thanks

Thank you, America! We can celebrate our first victories in the War on Fear this Thanksgiving! We have taken the first huge steps by changing our government. Perhaps the next front could be the Corporate Media, which appears to be running on fumes and completely oblivious to the fact that WE'RE NOT BUYING IT ANYMORE!
