Tokyo Rose

The other night we watched a movie called, "Flags of our Fathers".
During the movie, I pointed out the radio broadcast of "Tokyo Rose".

During World War II, the Japanese wanted to find a way to demoralize the American forces.
Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work.

They gave the script to their famous radio broadcaster "Tokyo Rose",
who always had the best music on her station, so lots of GIs would be sure to listen.
And every day she would broadcast the same message, packaged in different ways.
The Japanese hoped it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale.

What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

1. Your President is lying to you.

2. This war is illegal.

3. You cannot win the war.

Does this sound at all familiar?

It should, because today we are being bombarded by
Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, Tokyo Kerry, Tokyo Edwards
Tokyo Murtha, Tokyo Deanetc.

They have picked up the same demoralizing message and are broadcasting it
via Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops.

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they demoralize them.

Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops that she was on their side, too.

Not true at all. The president is lying...still no WMD's. The war is illegal, Iraq never attacked the U.S. Lastly, by definition, you cannot win someone elses civil war. Nuff said.

true true, but all of the other politicians are lying to you as well so don't go thinking a dem is gonna fix this country
the only way to fix this country, and the world, is by replacing the bourgeois ruling class with a class that is truely for the people and run by the people - the proletariat

also i saw this interesting article about how we have been fighting the war, our actions, and ran against the teachings in "art of war" where it shows them always contradicting... hell it might be possible if to "win" if some of them would take time to read some of that
