You think they will also report how Palestinians treat apostate converts to another religion?

Islamists butcher new Christian
Body of man who converted sent to family in 4 pieces
After slaughtering a Muslim-turned-Christian, Islamic extremists have reportedly returned the man's body to his Palestinian family in four pieces.

According to a report from the Barnabas Fund, the newly converted man left his friends and family earlier this month bound for a mountainous region of the Palestinian Authority area. He reportedly took Christian material with him – videos, cassette tapes and a Bible. After approximately 10 days, the body of the man, who left behind a wife and two small children, was returned to his home, having been cut into four pieces. The family believes the act was meant a warning to other Muslims who might consider becoming Christians

Probably not

> Spiegel notes that NATO chased Taliban out. No, it was not NATO. It was US/UK/Australia

True, but everybody makes msitakes!

> after Pakistan was clearly warned by President Bush that you are "either with us or against us."

Is that what he said? ;-)

> ... and German children will be taught about bringing "German liberty" to Iraqis.

I think you just didn't get the pun :-(
(Agreed, it was probably lost in the translation of the SPIEGEL article)

Perhaps Speigel was trying to be positive about the Afghan War, it being an established principle that a US war is an evil war. Calling it NATO makes it a little better in their view - and also implies that Germany played a part.

That's "German liberty" as in "the same type as Germans have", not "from Germans" - that means "granted by Americans", see? In that light, the Japanese have German liberty, the South Koreans, the French, etc. etc.

The joke amongst the guys in Afghanistan was the bravery of even the NGOs ("OXFAM chicks had bigger cojones than . . . ") compared to the NATO troops. Perhaps the media only shows the IEDs and the odd Taliban resurgence in some peripheral village because there was no "lead" footage in showing the NATO forces hunkered down in their body armor behind the high walls of their relatively safer compounds.
How interesting that when the worst part of the fighting was taking place ~ it was bad and evil. (Halliburton, Bush oil buddies and Cheney with the ephemeral mythology of an oil pipeline!!!) And now that it is over and safe enough for PRTs to venture out, the same MSM smearers of the coalition are attempting to grant NATO credit for it???
So can we deduce it wasn't really the fighting that was bad but rather, who was doing the fighting, and the fact that they were succeeding?

It appears the EUropean MSM believes the European public has just as short a memory as those bad and stupid ol' Amis.


German hypocrisy is beyond redemption. I found this cartoon comparing Afghanistan to WWI and WWI by Greser & Lenz, notabene the pet cartoonists of the "conservative" FAZ, in a back number of DER STERN: http://editrixblog.blogspot.com/2006/03/bermenschen-in-pc-mode.html
