I don't have much to add

...but I have to agree with this. Is our entry into the looking glass not worth reporting?
I mean, what exactly does it take to get a rise out of the media industrial complex these days? A nuclear first strike against a major Middle Eastern oil producer doesn't ring the bell? Must every story have a missing white woman in it before the cable news guys will start taking it seriously?
As Billmon points out, we were "just sabre rattling" about four years ago, and now we're three years into a war. Could we get upset in advance this time, and maybe prevent another disaster? Please??
