This is not a war

It is forbidden to call what is happening a “war.” A well-timed decision.

What’s going on is not a war. Everyone knows that.

But it’s forbidden to say what this is, as it’s not a war.

To write is forbidden, to talk is forbidden.

If you are going to write about war, it is forbidden call it anything other than peace.

The fighter planes you see are not fighter planes. The bomb engraved with the name of a “journalist” is not a bomb.

Those who call themselves war correspondents are not war correspondents. They are “operation correspondents.”

All this time we have been saying “journalism is not a crime.” No, it is a crime.

For people who say they do journalism in a time when journalism is forbidden, the color of the make-up on their faces is khaki.

But now it’s their time.........
