I don't get this coward thing. I mean, sure, they might have figured out a
way to kill more people without having to die themselves, so one could
perhaps call them somewhat suboptimally clever, but cowardly? Giving a
superior adversary extra angles for attack, because you're trying to be
fair? How stupid is that??? No, I definitely don't get that coward thing.

Ignoring the issue of whether your target audience will believe you
(doubtful, you've been already flagged as Great Satan), the target
audience will never see you propaganda, because relevant media are
extremely prejudiced against western memes.
