Hit the link above for a very good photoessay on the reality of Bush's Rovian fiction that Iraq has been fought by a coalition of the willing. This never was true, but now the American troops are rapidly being abandoned by the last of the dribble and drizzle of allied troops.
Whatever side one takes on whether the Iraq invasions should heve been done, the conduct of this war has been disastrous. The misuse of propaganda, what I call Rovian news, was a big part of this. Rovisim is NewSpeak grown big in a democratic soceity. The media should have ridiculed Bush for play acting that there ever was a meaningful coalition.
