* Re "Raids Redefine Rules for U.N. Peacekeeping," news analysis, June 13:
With their parroting of government press releases, the media are at it again in vilifying those they consider our enemies. Under the Bush Administration, it was that "dog" Ortega; it was that "thug" Noriega; it was that "butcher of Baghdad," Saddam Hussein. Now it is the warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid that we must hate in order to justify our killing with air raids on Somalian citizens. Is it any wonder that Somalian women and children throw rocks at their foreign saviors?
