Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Bringing the causes and path to war to trial couldn't hurt. I don't, however, see a court in Britain or the US willing to take on the administration, but things can change in a hurry. Pre-Sheehan in Crawford the president and war had a lot more support until she challenged him to show a little compassion.

One does not have to win a court case. One does not even need to succeed in getting it to court. Just the publicity surrounding the attempt, if well managed PR-wise, can raise awareness tremendously.

I can't see the corporate media picking this one up and running very far with it though. Straight to the bottom of page 17, if that. PR management is irrelevant if people's main sources of information won't touch it.

The way i see it, the corporate media will grudgingly cover smething which is against it's own interests if it's making a big enough splash. I see plenty of evidence for that. So if I were running the PR side of this thing, I'd be brainstorming with my group about how we can maximise ths splash.

Those corporate bastards will print anything if they think it's "big news". So you've got to make it "big news".

Which brings us right back to PPPPPP. You can make something "bign news" with PPPPPP. Dont make me spell out PPPPPP. :-)
