FROM SINGAPORE
SM Lim from Singapore wrote to say Thank you for posting the speech by Senator Robert Byrd. He is the only one talking sense in the entire USA. Pity his speech was not widely reported worldwide. Is there a conspiracy by media to only report the hawks' rantings?
 
Thanks SM. Byrd's speech got a bit of play here, but mainly, it got drowned out by media hawks. They enjoy talking about weapons more than conflicting ideas. It's rather funny that the only time the US media covers anti-war sentiment is when they report on crazy hippy protesters or foreigners. They're easier to dismiss. That's changing a bit and I'm sure if you ask a conservative, they will tell the liberal US press is mocking President Bush and second-guessing his war plans.
