The Art Of War: Using The Media Elites
Is Dee Dee Myers really in denial or is she just spinning the truth to suit the liberal agenda she represents?
Let's see - ---- She went on to say that she feels there are plenty of non media sources available that when collectively read provide an"honest picture" of Iraq, then she goes on to identify the State Dept website ( the only other source she mentioned) and concludes by saying that the "honest picture" as painted by "all kinds of sources "is one of failure!
Sounds like the usual bullshit we've come to hear from liberals!
Our enemy, unlike Dee Dee and her fellow media elites, understands the basic principals of "The Art of War" as put forth by Sun Tzu : Don't bother to physically defeat the enemy- rather defeat the enemy's will.
This is what these terrorists are doing and they are using a very willing liberal Anti- Bush, Anti-War, Anti Victory, Pro-Insurgent media to do so. Since the media elites seem to be enamored with mass murdering terrorists and dictators, they are only too willing to report the beheadings, the casualities, and in the case of a certain Aussie journalist, Michael Ware, continously give voice to these terrorists (in his convulated delusional way of thinking, which represents the mindset of most media elites, Michael believes these terrorists are entitled to have a voice in the media and equates them with our military; he sees no difference between them and our troops).
Our media is giving these terrorists exactly what they want.A platform to help break the will of the American people.(i.e SHAPE public perception). By better understanding Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and by duping an all too willing MSM into aiding and abetting them, these terrorists succeed at their objective: To win this battle by breaking the will of Iraqi's and AMERICANS.
So far, the Iraqi's collective will have proven to be far stronger than these terrorists (or insurgents as some mistakenly chose to name them) expected, and so they continue to remain aggressively focused on demoralizing the will of Americans, and have been highly successful in forming a coalition with very amenable and willing Media and Hollywood liberal elites.
If Dee Dee Myers believes the medias biased negative reporting doesn't shape public opinion or perception, then she, like most of the media elites, is either in denial, spinning the truth, or nowhere near as smart as the terrorists.
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
So in war the way is to avoid what is strong and strike at what is weak.
Let me explain this in simple terms for our media intelligentsia:
Avoid what is strong ( Our Military) and strike at what is weak ( Liberal Americans "Will" or lack there off)
Disciplined and calm, to await the appearance of disorder and hubbub amongst the enemy:--This is the Art of Retaining Self Possession.
The appearance of disorder and hubbub(chaos) is what our media is constantly focusing their attention on while failing to recognise or choosing to ignore that over 80% of the country is stable, and the many achievements of our military combined with help from the Iraqi army. This constant focus on the appearance of disorder is exactly what the terrorists want our media to do, in order to help them break down the will of Americans.
A clever general, therefore, avoids an army when it's spirit is keen, but attacks it when it is sluggish:--This is the Art of Studying Moods.
So our enemies understand that as long as the troops spirit is keen, as long as their collective will is strong, the terrorists LOSE. In order to help breakdown the will of our troops, they focus on using the media to destroy the will of the American public. When our will is sluggish, then the type of assinine debate put forth by DEMS and Liberals in Washington occurs - talk of troop withdrawals, talk of casualties(by the way 2000+ is the lowest casualities of ANY war todate) attacks upon the President and his decision to go to war, Zogby polls that are DELIBERATELY misleading, combined with polls conducted by liberal based institutes that are touted in the media and are either faulty or misleading: all this serves to create divisiveness which is THE ONLY way these terrorists can defeat us, and deny democracy in Iraq and by fiat in the Middle East. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. It is the ONLY way they can win. It is the ONLY way they can spread their fundamentalist agenda. And our media elites, are aiding them in doing so, by shaping public opinion, which in turn scares the shit out of Dems who so desperately want to win the 2008 election that they feed into and spread this divisiness and fear, aiding our enemy to defeat us, so that they(the Dems) can in turn defeat Republicans at the polls.
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when we are far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.
The insurgents have managed to deceive the media and liberal elites; they have managed to feign widespread disorder, and in doing so, have made it easier for them to crush us; not militarily,that's impossible, but simply by breaking down the will of the people.
By playing on the fears and doubts already instilled in the hearts and minds of Democrats and liberal Americans- thanks to the relentless one sided coverage of the situation in the Iraq by the MSM - these terrorists are cleverly and somewhat effectively- preparing the battlefield to crush us.
