Ramzy Baroud summarizes the current state of affairs in Iraq in Skewed reporting from the Iraq War Theater. Basra Battles: Barely Half the Story at Global Research, contrasted with the propaganda that has been put forth by western media.

“The latest battles in Basra, Iraq’s second largest city and a vital oil seaport, furnished ample instances of misleading and manipulative practice in corporate journalism today.
