    I also remember that drinug the invasion of Iraq CNN showed footage of an Iraqi with a handheld rocket launcher they stood in the window fired the rocket launcher,and then ducked back behind the window. A tank then blew a whole in the building,and bodies went flying. The first time I saw it it was live I saw it several times after that. Only the next times they did'nt show the guy with the rocket launcher. Only the American tank blowing a whole in the building,and bodies flying. I can't even watch CNN for mare then about 5 minutes without getting p*ssed off,and turning the channel
