Psy-ops as diplomacy

Pentagon Funds Diplomacy Effort;

Treadwell's group was established last year and includes a graphic artist and videographer, he said. It assists "psyops" personnel stationed at military headquarters overseas. Col. Sam Taylor, a spokesman for the Special Operations Command, which runs the Army's Special Forces, Navy SEALs and other elite combat units, said the contractors might help the military develop commercials in Iraq, for example, illustrating how roadside bombs meant for soldiers also harm children and other innocent civilians.

Beautiful. Like these motherf*ckers care. The ordnance (tonnes of the stuff) that's been tossed about Iraq by the Co-alition Forces makes IED's look like firecrackers (which destroy armoured vehicles and humvees).

Oops, sorry. I forgot. This is psy-ops, it ain't in the least bit sincere. Quite the opposite, in fact. The purpose of this stuff is self-serving.
