      One of the most interesting recent iwar cases happened yesterday when
      a rumor killed 800+ people in Iraq. I didn't get the full details yet
      but apparently at a religious meeting with many people in a large
      crowd someone started the rumor of a terrorist with a bomb being in
      the crowd and the ensuing riot killed hundreds.

      On the US domestic front, restrictions on pollution from gas
      refineries were loosened to increase the refining capacity in light
      of the recent hurricane. Of course the reduction in capacity was
      because of deregulation of the industry causing most of the capacity
      to be put in one place - and of course the industry has been making
      record profits lately as prices soar - and of course reducing the
      pollution requirements will not effectively lower prices or increase
      production - but with nature as the excuse and the US economy already
      on the edge as a result of the Bush war, this new move will increase
      the same global warming on which the increased number and intensity
      of storms is blamed while generating even more revenues for the same
      industry that created the problem in the first place. A nifty bit of
      perception management by the US administration to do the exact wrong
      thing to solve the problem while getting their friends and themselves
      even richer under the color of helping to emerge from the current
      crisis.

      Oh - and did I mention that the lack of adequate National Guard
      troops to help the victims of the flooding will likely result in the
      deaths of hundreds to thousands? And why aren't there enough troops?
      Because they were sent to Iraq of course. Yes - this will be the next
      piece of perception that will be manipulated in some way. Somehow
      there will have to be a spin explaining why more US citizens were
      killed by the war in Iraq as a result of the storm in the US than
      were killed on 911 by the radical islamist terrorists (RITs). Of
      course the RITs have already asserted that all of this is part of the
      wrath of Allah against Western civilization.

      Your comments and propaganda is welcomed.
