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?
