Doublespeak Worthy of Orwell

With doublespeak worthy of Orwell,
America sends boys into action.
Ringing the rubble 'round Baghdad
with weapons of mass distraction.
Misguided muscles and smart bombs,
now funded well in the trillions,
cause substantial collateral damage...
(that's what we call dead civilians).

Them fibs served up as current events
sure erode my confidence.
Aggression masked as self defense
... it goes on unreported.
They all tune in to the same address,
feeding frenzy at the same news mess;
official badges, tenured press,
no wonder it's distorted.
