In recent lethal encounters around the globe, the role of media seems informative but with the blend of controversies, especially if the role of western media is discussed in the perspective of ongoing clashes and the role of western and US army in that regards. US Army gurus already exposed because of their inhuman and full biased attitudes especially when their real behaviors with war prisoners on the web exposed; before such exposing, Western media was in insomnia on that topics.
