Like bethlehem Steel was a war plant and was booming during Viet Nam . Then the decline started. Tobyhanna will meet the same fate as soon as we come back from Iraq and the rest of the middle east. We've farmed out all our jobs and now have to depend on foreign countries to supply our needs including steel. Ask Tattersall about his job in Brussels Belgium. Thats where they made the deals to spread out the steel production among foreigners. All it did was make more enemies that hate America. Iraq is a lost cause as of now. Only a drastic change in the way we fight this war will ever save any of the jobs we farmed out.

So this story is on the front page, and 15 Americans killed in Iraq gets a small headline on p. 4.
Must be that ``liberal media.''
