"The Sawdust Caesar Ends Up In The Gutter"

Warning: Mussolini gets his head blown off at the end, and hung up like a side of beef!

Heh, now you gotta watch this one, right? Now this is how you report a major war event:


Gee, which side do you think the producers of this newsreel were on? No insincere feigning of 'objectivity' here - the reporter and the editor are clearly revelling in the elimination of the loathsome Benito Mussolini.

Did I say loathsome? I meant, he was a punk who deserved a gun butt across that smug mug of his:


To quote Tony Montana: "Well LOOK AT YOU NOW."

Not saying here that we should return to an era of 'jingoistic propaganda' - but please, surely we can also do without the constant slimy insinuations from reporters these days that every mistake, miscalculation and misdeed is always solely and uniquely the fault of the U.S.

Update: Er, actually I guess he didn't quite get his whole head blown off at the end. There are pictures of him hanging upside down at a Milan gas station, head more or less intact, with his sweetie pie hanging there as well.

Ah, love!

P.S. For these very reasons, I strongly support releasing footage of the impending execution of Saddam Hussein - I hope it ends up on YouTube. Can you say . . . closure?

Reminds me that the press loudly announced that the current war has gone on as long as WW-II.

I guess the media are saying we should have decided, as Truman did, that the ememy would fight to the last man, woman , and child; and so start hanging terrorists by their heels, drop the bomb, plan and build bases in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Israel for the next 60 years.
Let's try the strategy that gained our survival in WW-II:

Whatever it takes to win.
