Media Coverage of Our Military in Time of War

August 29th, 2012
I am starting to notice a trend in reporting about our Military Personnel currently in harms way. The New York Times is demonstrating a better than average amount of reporting on both current and future conflicts that have a good possibility of involving the U.S. Military.

The New York Times

New York, Friday, August 24, 2012

Lots of coverage on page A10:         Iran’s nuclear program

                                                            Afghan-on-Afghan Attacks

                                                            China vs. Myanmar

Although, not directly involving our Military, these are three issues of ominous importance to the United States.

The New York Times

New York, Saturday, August 25, 2012

Good coverage on page A6:             Syrian Refugees

                                                            Pakistani Militant Leader Dead by Drone

                                                            Acknowledgement of our War Dead

Any day that a Drone strikes the right target is a good day. Syria will most likely come into play in the near future. Any chance to memorialize our fallen Service Personnel is most welcomed by the Military Veteran sector.

The New York Times

New York, Sunday, August 26, 2012

International Section, pages 8 & 9: More on the Massacres in Syria

                                                            More on Pakistani militant leader’s death by Drone

                                                            More on China vs. Myanmar

                                                            Afghan tribal warring

                                                            Hamas / Gaza / Israel conflict

It seems that the more information I gather concerning armed conflicts and and other restless situations that stand to occupy our Military strength, the more I am impressed with the appearance of just how "Tribal" vast segments of the World are. This leads me to believe there are no "Nations", and, perhaps, there is no "United States of America". Maybe we are simply Tribes involved in a loose association with each other.
