    An unstoppable 'shock and awe' campaign ...

    In their alternating chapters, Reese Erlich and Norman Solomon write of their individual experiences in Iraq. They tell of the events they experienced, the places they visited and the Iraqis 'so routinely rendered invisible or fleeting by U.S. media coverage.' The book is peppered with quotes from people as diverse as a Hollywood celebrity such as Sean Penn to an Iraqi cab driver, eager to let an American into his home to meet his extended family. While the wealth of knowledge provided in the book through quotes and interviews is staggering, the authors don't leave the reader with only a large collection of interesting opinions. Target Iraq is chockfull of hard facts. Because of the mountain of evidence contained within its pages, the book is invaluable. Target Iraq calls into question the 'facts' given to us by the mainstream media and effectively exposes them as nothing more than fiction, or at best, half-truths. How many times have you heard somebody in the media claiming that U.N. weapons inspectors were 'thrown out' of Iraq? The truth of the matter is that Unscom head Richard Butler withdrew them in December 1998, 'just before a blitz of U.S. bombing dubbed 'Operation Desert Fox.'' The trail of lies fed to us by corporate media is long and staggering, and unless you like being a dupe for General Electric, finding out about as many of them as you can is essential. This book is one of the best places to start your search and begin the de-duping process. There is a war being fought today on the home front. In it, people with a dissenting opinion are being accused of 'protecting tyrants.' If Americans would only educate themselves beyond what they've been taught by the corporate media, the dissenting opinion could easily claim victory over the conventional voice. The only ammo a person needs to win is knowledge enough to separate news propaganda from authentic news. Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn't Tell You is an unstoppable 'shock and awe' campaign able to shock people with its claims and awe them by backing up each of the claims with reliable facts.
