Read spiked editor Mick Hume in The Times (London):

The Times, 22 October 2001:

‘In a propaganda war, do you put guns before peanut butter?’

Some military experts reported Saturday morning’s brief incursion as the start of a serious ground offensive. They may well be right, but to my untrained eye those first grainy pictures looked like a militarised publicity stunt, a grander version of the kind of PR film we are more used to seeing from little terrorist groups who wave rifles on video as a ‘show of strength’.
