The Value of Scrap Metal....

Belmont Club has an interesting series of posts that put the current issues in Iraq in a bit of perspective.

This post in particular makes a very important point, mentioning as it does the tale of a six hour battle for a wrecked HumVee of no value. The battle took place because american soldiers were determined to deny the insurgents the propoganda value and the press the satisfaction of displaying it.

Thus is the cost of the lopsided reporting.
