I have finished watching both CNN and BBC World and I have never seen such biased reporting.They kept on going for the need of security unitl the cows and they blaming the coalition for it.They never mentioned that there are still pockets of resistence and a threat from suicide bombers.Also they are building it up to seem that the coalition has lost total control of the stituation-and its only been about 3 days since Baghdad has fallen!All they seem to do is build the coalition up(before the war),bring it down(when they ran into stiff resistance),bring them up again when Baghdad fell and now bring them down because impoverished Iraqis are looting.
Just a few minutes ago,BBC World conducted an interview with an MP
from the UK Parlimentary Human Rights Comittee, an Oxfam Spokesman,a US CENTCOM spokeman and a UN aid spokeswoman(she was french,more on that later). So anyway the presenter asked the UN person about what they aimed to do in terms of aid when security was restored and instead what did she do?She started going on about how bad the security was without even mentioneing the aid.The the presenter had to stop her and told her to stop going on about the politics involved and just answer the question,but she still went on about how bad the security was.
Same with the oxfam person.When asked what oxfam was going to do,he went on like the UN aid rep about how bad the security is and even said this and I quote "Its harder to distribute water than to liberate Iraq".
Thankfully the UK MP
gave a decent response.She said that the coalition still needed time given the current situation and that the Iraqi people whom after years of surpression would take their fustration out on government buildings,but she said the looting of hospitals was worrying though.Finally she was asked about who would pay for the Iraqi reconstruction and she said the usual about the IMF and the World Bank etc...and I quote again.."It woud be nice if France,Russia and Germany could cancel the debt that Iraq owes them.
