A MUST READ!!! PENTAGON'S HALF-BILLION DOLLAR PR BUDGET TO SELL WAR IN AFGHANISTAN!! (1688 hits)



$547 million. That’s the Pentagon’s P.R. budget. They’re using it to spread mistruths and misplaced hope in ‘progress’ with one goal in mind: to extend the brutal, costly Afghanistan War.
General Petraeus' media blitz is only the tip of the iceberg in the Pentagon's effort to sell war to the American people. The Defense Department has a budget of more than $500 million for public relations efforts directed at U.S. citizens, a slice of a much larger information operations effort to influence public opinion. But no matter how much they spend on P.R. and information operations, the facts on the ground show that the Afghanistan War isn't making us safer, and it's not worth the costs.

HELP FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE SPIN!!!

Sis. Siebra.....As-Salaam-Alaikum......There is a large Sunni Muslim population in Pakistan. They appear hard headed in recognizing the devil. It turns out that recognizing the devil is as important as recognizing who be the One God of the universe. Either way, you loose ! Now, a chastisement is afflicting Pakistan due to their eagerness to appease the America. The Sunni sect of Islam must learn the hard way that the enemy of God is the enemy of the muslim.

What you said makes absolutely zero sense Mr. Abraham.

The waste and abuse of public funds by the DoD is a crime in itself. We spend more on "defense" than all the governments on earth combined and have relatively little to show for it. Much of that money is corporate welfare for programs that go nowhere and do nothing, leading to no practical applications of anything, just feeding the bottom line of military contractors.

If all the programs, projects and initiatives of the pentagon were positive and made sense, and subjected to basic principals of project management, we wouldn't need to spend a dime on PR for them; just report the news.
