other wars there is a big information problem which leads to ”propaganda war”. Many things are hidden from the public ”for their own good”. But is it really for their own good? ! ! This paper will take a look at M. Bush’s handling of this very delicate political situation as well as, as mentioned previously, propaganda war (misinformation).
How much are allies really ready to risk, in military and political ways, so that one U. S.
A. can get their hands on who ever organised the september 11 th? I hope that you enjoy this as much as I will… THE WORD WAR Unfortunately, lies are part of our everyday lives. Wherever we go, what ever we do at one point in our day we have told a lie to someone.
The lying strategy is very well know in the world of politics, domestic or international it does not matter much. Lies, or as some people prefer to call it truth in its modified form, and misinformation are presented through all sorts of media to the public. Especially, in times like these is golden. The U. S. may be fighting an armed war in Afghanistan, but an even bigger one is much closer that it appears.
It is fought on our television, in our newspapers, over internet. Many sources make public different information about the same event. But which information is the right information? There is a perfect start to, what I would lie to call. the Word War.
Usually, in a war there are two sides. That means that each side has its and its truth. It will try to communicate it to the public by the use of media. but in a war, the media is very censored which that the right information to the viewer. I will give you three examples of misled information. Though the Al-Jazeera, Arab television station that has exclusive access to the Afghan war, Osama bin Laden give interviews and sends messages to all the listeners.

The Foreign Operations and Government Information Subcommittee of the House reports ... to be able to keep information from the public and has fabricated numerous lies to protect itself.

In one of his latest interviews ”he claims, implausibly, that he is not really fighting Americans, only Israel” (Margolis, Eric 2001) The Americans on the other hand dismiss strongly the idea, or rather the fact most of the normal, that they are helping Israel in many ways, shapes and forms. Out of these two statements, the public reacts something like this. In Afghanistan those who have television and are able to view visual information, are totally confused since, for them, there is explanation behind the American attacks on their country. Bin Laden’s fight is not against America but rather the state of is real. In the U.
S. people that watch CNN and that are brainwashed enough actually believe that U. S. has nothing to do directly or with Israel and the everlasting war in the Middle-East.
Another perfect example or ”playing with information” tactics brings us back to the NATO bombing of Federal Republic Of yugoslavia. During the U. S. led mission, thousands upon thousands of bombs have been dropped on yugoslav territory and God knows how many flights were flown during those 3 months of hell. Sometime within days of the attacks, the information got out on yugoslav nation television that the Nation Army had successfully brought down one of the billion-dollar-invisible-to-reader impossible-to-town plane.
As expected, while the yugoslav army is joyful, the Pentagon denies the whole thing. Few days later, the BBC, British Broadcasting Corporation, got access to the wreckage of the American plan and the footage was shown on European television but not here in the North America. The entire Europewitnessedwhat America denied. Unfortunately, the footage was never again shown on television (what a surprise! ! ! ).
Staying still in the same area of the world, during the Bosnia war (1991-1995) at one point the Americans, disguised under the NATO flag bombed the Serbs (presented to the West as aggressors) positions around the capital Sarajevo. Again, the mission was a clear, perfect success as the West hoped that it will be. The word got out that some American planes were shot down, and as we know it, the U. S. A. denied those statements.

For argument sake, let’s say that we actually believed what they said. Americans have admitted that rescue have been organised during their raid on Bosnia. (CNN) Then, how come that rescue missions have been conducted to save the lost pilots if no planes were brought down? THE SUPPORT Even with the information war going on, some being aware of it, others not, the support for president Bush’s military action in Afghanistan is extremely high.’ ‘we have measured his job rating five times since the 11 th, and his average across those five has been 88 percent. As of in our CNN/USA Today Gallup poll, his rating was right on that average, at 88 percent (Transcript of ”CNN.
com”aired on October 23, 2001) ”Unfortunately, it seems that this high percentage of support case everywhere. An article from web from Sunday, October 28, 2001, stated that one of the world most powerful countries is working whit the Taliban regime against the United States.’ ‘Taliban commander-in chief JalaluddinHaqqani has claimed that the militia was ”in touch”whit China, which was assisting them in the war against the US.’ ‘Although, we all know that this information is highly bia seed, those whom read the article might just received a shock since it is the last thing that U. S. wants now is being in confrontation whit China. Let me just remind you that in last 3 years, China and U.
S. have been leading a smaller version of the Cold War. As I have mentioned it previously, during the bombardments of Yugoslavia, a high-tech U. S.
warplane was brought down. The yugoslav e president at that time, Slobodan milosevic, sold to China parts of that same airplane for a certain amount of money. They were reports that those parts were hidden in China’s embassy building in belgrade. The following day, one of U.
S. boys had hit that same embassy. The goal was to destroy the plane parts. Did they succeed or not we shall never know.
Another incident of the same kind occurred when a U. S. spy plane was brought down by China’s airforce. We all know the story and how it ended. The American press covered that very well. The Religious And Scientific Factor When the plan of attacking Afghanistan was starting to be executed, U.
