Setting An Agenda
Reuters states the obvious in a story that says that military action results in many deaths. This article reads more like an opinion piece than a news story:
Thousands of military personnel and hundreds of civilians would be killed if the United States launched an air strike on Iran to prevent it developing nuclear arms, a British think tank said in a report released on Monday.Isn't it the purpose of a surprise attack to catch your enemy unprotected? Reuters has no comment on the number of civilian deaths that an Iranian nuclear weapon might cause.
The report by the Oxford Research Group said any bombing of Iran by U.S. forces, or by their Israeli allies, would have to be part of a surprise attack that would inevitably catch many Iranians unprotected and could eventually lead to a lengthy confrontation involving many other countries in the region.
