America's wars always have had critics, but the difference in this war is the prevalence of the media, Secretary Rumsfeld said. Terrorists recognize the influence the media has, so they use their own media committees to determine how best to manipulate the American public through the media, he said.

Vietnam? The media showed very grafic images of the fighting all the time. People got to see actual war in their homes. They then started to not like the war so much. Go figure. Maybe those terrorists got to the media then, too.
