“We have reporters around the world who are willing to go anywhere to find a good story and explain what it means. And they are the reason we are launching this blog. Our correspondents won't just be reporting the news, they will be looking to tell stories that connect us all. They will be seeking out, well, parallels, between stories far away and those close to home. And in the process, we hope to offer up some uncommon answers and alternate perspectives.”—Welcome to ‘Parallels,’ NPR’s International News Blog
USA to "offer troops" to Iraq
It use to be called: War — or Occupation….now it’s called ‘offering troops.’
Not that this story makes any difference, because Withdrawal doesn’t mean withdrawal any more, anyhow.
No time for more details. I’m going to ‘offer a SWAT team,’ to my neighbor. I guess I could also ‘pay off in full,’ a few credit cards….as long as ‘pay off in full,’ doesn’t mean pay off in full — This word nonsense may have other advantages…I guess I could beat someone up and steal their money and tell them it was a ‘reform program,’ or how the mugging was actually an act of “protecting the people.’
