PERSONAL TO PBS, FOX & CNN: RALPH PETERS WANTS TO KILL YOU

Ralph Peters is a military blowhard who has appeared frequently on such TV networks as PBS, Fox and CNN. Writing for the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, he offers this thought:

"Future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media. Perceiving themselves as superior beings, journalists have positioned themselves as protected-species combatants. But freedom of the press stops when its abuse kills our soldiers and strengthens our enemies. Such a view arouses disdain today, but a media establishment that has forgotten any sense of sober patriotism may find that it has become tomorrow's conventional wisdom."

So in the next war, if Peters has his way, there may be Air Force drone attacks on MSNBC.
