War Hype is an art of propaganda in war, how war turns war into a game people watch on TV like the world cup or super bowl, with winners and losers
decided by points that are tallied by how many or how few 'innocents' are reported to be killed. It is a sad game really, the world today is no
different than early Rome, except the Colosseum is delivered on cable news.
One catch though, when the Romans sat at the Colosseum, they knew what was happening, but for us, on TV we only get what they want us to see, after
all, the worse it is the higher the ratings.
I'd like to point out that one of the most overused phrases the media has used during the past few weeks. "Israel Attacks Target Near
There are already almost 4000 hits for that phrase in googles news section alone.
With plenty of good photography and videos of explosions and smoke, and first hand interviews that describe the incredible destruction taking place,
one could imagine Beirut is a broken and destroyed city.
You would be wrong. Did you know only 3 targets have been hit inside the Beirut city limits, and only 9 total in the city and surrounding areas?
Beware of the war hype.
A tactical map of what has been hit in Beruit and surroundings.
For those who will say "it isn't true" I encourage you to research your tail off to prove it isn't true, because it actually is true, as of
yesterday anyway. War is hell, and the first thing that dies in war is the truth, with the innocent usually a close second.
**Disclaimer** Israel has bombed the hell out of city areas in Southern Lebanon, including neighborhoods. This post is not an attempt to justify all
of Israel's target selections, rather expose the media propaganda.
