Why war Sims?

My favorite part of cracking media fakery is the who and the why. Here is Clues resident sage Hoi speculating on the why: www.cluesforum.info/viewtopic….

The idea that several thousand Americans died in the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, and their pictures tend to look like this, is silly. Unfortunately, the number of war casualties could be several magnitudes higher or lower than any figure given by the media. Think about it: sims are useful to conglomerate enemy victories you want to downplay, or fluff up the effectiveness of enemy moves you want to lure the enemy into believing are wildly successful. It is an interesting and confusing line of thought. But control is the name of the game for the military.
