Syria and the Media

Of course, as always, the media in the US, Britain, and parts of Europe, are lying about the situation in Syria, as they’ve done with other countries before, to justify their war aims. Nothing new, and very predictable. Except, now there are other powers rising with their own media reaching who knows how many for the moment. And, it is a different story when the Russians and the Chinese actually say no, and veto things at the UN, and then back it up with action – like arming and supporting the Syrian government. I’ve talked about this too much already, but we can see the American Empire is acting in desperation, with the phony revolutions. Since when are activists heavily armed. And look at how they got heavily armed. This is all coming in from outside of the country. Look, Libya was a bridge too far for them. Why didn’t the Russians make a bigger deal of that.

Of course, the icon of the left, Noam Chomsky was no help, when he first supported the UN “No Fly Zone” resolution, something Bob Gates wasn’t even fond of..

But I’ve had my doubts about Chomsky’s usefulness as a spokesperson for the so-called left for some time now. I wrote an article that I meant to save before I re-arranged some blogs that detailed all of the problems with blindly following him. But just briefly, he seems to accept the official version of 9/11 a little too much. He won’t admit that, yes, the government (or factions within) do go after people who are “privileged” as he thinks he is. The most obvious case is that of the DC madame, who was going to expose the politicians (and others?) who visited her house of ill repute. She went on an alternative radio show, and proclaimed never believe it if they say she committed suicide, because she would never do that. And then, of course, the news media told us that is exactly what she did. Really? He thought Obama (and Kerry before that) would be slightly better than Bush, and that justified a vote for them. He’s always quoting these western NGOs as they have any credibility anymore.And he believed all we were told about the “Arab Spring” when it is obvious that in Libya and Syria the revolts were straight out manufactured, while in Egypt they were co-opted.

There was at least one more point, but enough about Chomsky. The whole concept is don’t blindly accept what he or anyone says. It was, I believe, William Cooper that said, and this a paraphrase, listen to everybody, do research, and then make up your own mind. Chomsky and the so-called left can only take us so far. Then the rabbit hole gets deeper.

So, here we are again, with more fake news, like WMD in Iraq, which I’m told some still believe. But this time, the reality on the ground is too distant from the manufactured news. This is a dangerous situation, because what will they try? What do they have up their sleeve?

We can complain about Putin all we want, but right now he, and the Russian and Chinese establishment, are all that stands in the way of a general conflagration that could turn into a larger war. That is not a exaggeration.

So, this video is from Morris 108 YouTube, who is the best video source for what is happening in our world right now, as far as I can tell. Keep up the good work Morris..
