In an article from the Toronto Star about James Loney and the CPT in Iraq:
"Despite the group's continual denunciation of the U.S. presence in Iraq, or "occupation" in its parlance, MacKay denies it demonizes the military: "We do talk to the soldiers, high and low; the kid at the gate, the commanders. A lot of them are unhappy. Our hearts go out to them."

"occupation" in its parlance? What kind of cowardly journalism is this? Foreign countries have over 75,000 soldiers on the ground, and you can't even say that it's an occupation?

The Sun's editorial is worse. Not by much, mind you.

Yeah you were saying in your other entry that you were wondering why you read the Sun... I mean even the Post is more interesting, no? =)

I was Googling information about the dead Centennial striker, and a Sun link popped up. While I was there, I read their editorial about the CPT...holy shit was it bad!
