On 'false impressions'

From Austin Bay, who is in Iraq, and should probably know better:
Every day, coalition forces were moving thousands of 18-wheelers from Kuwait and Turkey into Iraq, and if the "insurgents" were lucky they blew up one. However, flash the flames of that one rig on CNN and, "Oh my God, America can't stop these guys," is the impression left in Boise and Beijing.

Agreed. After all, on Sept. 11, 2001, millions of buildings around America were, in fact, not attacked by terrorists piloting hijacked passenger planes. And yet, flash the flames of those three buildings, and we get all this "Oh my God what a horrible tragedy" stuff.

You know?
