"Should war in the Gulf commence, the Pentagon proposes to take radical new steps in media relations - 'unauthorised' journalists will be shot at."

For some amusement, I'd advise you say that in front of a Holocaust survivor, and see what they think of you.

You have no idea how much research I do, do you? Unlike you, I post more than I-wanna-be-profound-but-mommy-took-my-Prozac-away "poetry" on my journal.

Again, I ask you to take your juvenile whining to a Holocaust survivor. Tell them how you think your experience is like living under Hitler. Listen to what they have to say, and then realize that they are one of the lucky few to survive.

HAHA, so since you REHASH the NEWS into your LIVEJOURNAL, what???? it's quite obvious you're claiming to be more informed than me .. empty claims are what would be JUVENILE.

your second paragraph is a pile of bullshit, but then again all of your semi-attacks on me have been; now either stop or direct it to email, enough of bashing in someone elses journal, again: this shit .. be .. JUVENILE.

I keep hovering back and forth between Good and that's outrageous. On one hand, the media is a pestilance in many ways and I think it's stupid how much info they give away about sensitive topics such as military manuvers and such. On the other hand, it is kinda creepy and Big Brotherish.

i can see that angle, but the thing is- who's "authorized" other than the official fox/msnbc/cnn mouthpieces?

Hand one: This would prevent freedom of speech on the battleground

Hand two: It's a battleground, dammit.

Hand three: How can the Pentagon tell between a freelance journalist with a satelite phone and an Iraqi Republican Guard commando calling in artillery strikes with a satelite phone?

Thus, it "makes sense" to ask journalists to register themselves, so that they do not get mistaken for the enemy and get a HARM up their butt. Unfortunately, this gives the folk at the Reich Ministry of Fatherland Security a way to vet journalists politically and only approve the ones they like.

Want to be amused? Try being a freelance journalist in France (will fine you for insulting the government) Russia (will eject you from the country for speaking about sensitive subjects) or China (will strip you of your healthy organs and dump the rest of your carcass in a drainage ditch, just for fun)

The Hitler comparisons are for whiny juveniles who have no idea what fear is. I hope they all get sent to my ancestral home, to rot under a Communist slave-labor camp.

Awwies. Nice mashing of big numbers.

I know what self-destruction is, thankyouverymuch. I've gone through family albums and seen enough lives stop at eighteen, twenty two, thirty five, cut down by the Japanese army, starved to death by the Communists, or simply dissapeared.

I hope someday you and your self-important little teenage shitbrick mind get to understand quite what that feels like, but I doubt you'll ever even take me up on my suggestion to talk to a Holocaust survivor, but instead shall whine in freedom on a computer that in all likelyhood your mommy bought you.

You may speak of self destruction but kid you have no idea how dark the human soul is.

>rambling about how self-important you are while trying to slam an anonymous internet entity-- but hey all your assumptions are completely wrong, so here:

[the one thing you got semi-accurate is my self-importance, however it is obvious you have high quantities of it as well] i'm not "teenage", you can't tell shit through the internet so don't try.. i've been through enough shit to know how certain things feel; but i'm not under the delusion that suffering more or less than someone else makes the one who suffered most superior; so get the fuck off your plastic horse, the fuck these issues you need to deal with, take them out elsewhere, not on dk's journal, k? while the level of freedom is higher here than elsewhere, i'd still not call it "freedom".

i'm fully aware how "dark" the human soul has POTENTIAL to be. stop stayin shit that's lies yo, like your better, because you aren't, just like i'm not, then again i'm not claiming to be~
