ARE JOURNALIS TARGET FOR VIOLENCE?
A person was killed the other day in front of a museum. Witnessed by Journalist.
What is maybe a Journalist is killed. No facts. All hearsay.
What is the truth?
This is the question. The solution is to not hang around with other journalist. Any concentration of journalist or foreigners could be a target. Sort of like going to the American Embassy to be safe, and they are the main targets. This would be silly. Hanging around with soldiers or looking like a soldier would be asking for problems. Low profile folks.
MY THEORY ON WHY THE VIOLENCE IS HAPPENING IN IRAQ...
1/2 the violence is normal criminals.
1/4 are people that had their family members killed by Soldiers and want revenge.
1/4 are people that are rabble rousers, or want to the USA to leave so they can become the next Sadaam.
In most countries they are not angry at the corrupt boss. The are jealous and want the job. Strange.
In Colombia they target the Journalist to make sure that no one knows what is going on.
I was there for 2 months. I believer that what the press says about this being a rebellion or civil war is extreme crap.
It is just a bunch of drug lords protecting their business.
DO THEY LIKE THE USA?
Here is another LACK of clarity on the source poll and possible hearsay information. Need to gleem off the choices or possibilties.
"However, only 17 percent of respondents said U.S.-led forces should leave Iraq immediately. ...
The survey, conducted by the independent Iraqi Institute of Strategic Studies, polled 1,100 people June 8-10 - two months after U.S.-led invaders toppled President Saddam Hussein."
