Joe The Reporter is sharing some of the wisdom he's amassed during his parachute into Israel: first thing, he'd keep journalists away from war.

The media personality/unlicensed plumber/book flogger is on assignment for Pajamas Media. AP TV caught up with the newly credentialed scribe during a photo opp in Sderot.

Joe, aka Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, had this to say:

To be honest with you, I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war … I liked back in World War I and World War II, when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for them. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to down soldiers — our American soldiers, our Israeli soldiers. I think media should be abolished from reporting. You know, war’s hell, and if you’re gonna sit there and say ‘Well look at this atrocity’ — well you don’t know the full story behind it half the time. So I think the media should have no business in it.

If only he'd listen to his own heart.
