Real insurgents want to get the occupying power out of their country. But the fastest way to get Americans out of Iraq would be to do the opposite of what these "insurgents" are doing. Just by letting peace and order return, those who want to see American troops gone would speed their departure.

Nearby, Zeqir Â“ZiggyÂ” Berisha, a native of Kosovo and now a citizen with two sons in the U.S. Army and two in the Marines, waved his flag and shouted support for Bush.
Â“This nation underneath God is best on Earth!Â”
Asked about the protesters, he shrugged them off.
Â“Disagree is good! I disagree with my wife 35 years! Disagree is OK.Â”
Berisha spoke of how different it was when he was living in Yugoslavia under Josip Broz Tito.
Â“Tito used to shoot people for speaking against them. He shot two of my friends.Â”
Berisha is a little more reserved about free speech when it comes to his boys.
Â“I tell them, you speak against this country, you speak against me!Â”

Following the Apollo 13 tragedy from the perspective of news reporters, this episode is another one of the most memorable in the series. While some reporters try to keep their distance from the families of the astronauts on Apollo 13, others set out to exploit the raw emotion from those families to gain better ratings. This episode nicely displays the change in journalism ethics that occurred in the late '60s and early '70s, and how it directly affected the Apollo 13 news story.
