As for those who complain about others having no conception of what war is, would you please enlighten us as to what it's like to have your leg blown off by a land mine. Really, I'd love to know.
It is not enough to claim bias on the part of a news reporter. If one genuinely wishes to get at the truth, one must go looking for the facts. What facts does the article itself get wrong, if any?
Did the Dept. of Defence not actually issue the statement referred to by the author? While none of the big media organizations seem to be reporting on it, there are certainly ways of finding out if the statement was issued.
