Insurgent: Don't toy with the internet

My recent posting on the video of a Hercules crash pointed out that whether the video was a fake or not, it showed a capacity and will for media warfare.

But it can be over-done.

Say, if you took an action figure and made a nice little diorama, complete with black "alluh-akbar" flag and cropped the picture so that another action figure of a Iraqi insurgent could stand just outside of view, only showing a little plastic rifle. You want to scare your enemy, right? Don't underestimate him then. He has after all played with action-toys all his childhood. Read the story(CNN) and reconsider my words on hyper-reality.
