Solche Nachrichten werden in den USA nur selten durch die großen landesweiten Medien verbreitet, sondern meist lediglich von lokalen Medien mit geringer Reichweite. So bekommen die meisten Menschen in den USA und auch international vom kontinuierlichen und stark angestiegenen Blutstrom der Opfer des extrem brutalen Krieges gegen Afghanistan wenig mit. Denn würden diese Nachrichten anstelle der anregend kribbelnden Kriegspropaganda ins Bewusstsein der Menschen dringen, so bestünde die Gefahr, dass mehr Menschen sich gegen den total unsinnigen Krieg auflehnen.
