John Pilger: History is the enemy as “brilliant” psy-ops become the news

The threats against Syria, co-ordinated in Washington and London, scale new peaks of hypocrisy. Contrary to the raw propaganda presented as news, the investigative journalism of the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung identifies those responsible for the massacre in Houla as the “rebels” backed by Obama and Cameron. The paper’s sources include the rebels themselves. This has not been completely ignored in Britain. Writing in his personal blog, ever so quietly, Jon Williams, the BBC World News editor, in effect dishes his own “coverage”, citing a western official who described the “psy-ops” operation against Syria as “brilliant”. As brilliant as the destruction of Libya, and Iraq, and Afghanistan.

You can read the rest of John Pilger’s brilliant new NS piece, on how US and British democracies have been replaced by an extremism hell-bent on the destruction of democracy, here. 

While on the subject of the destruction of Libya, do take a look at this report.  Also, this great piece by Peter Hitchens from last week’s Mail on Sunday.

‘Liberal interventionism’.  Or as it should be called, the destruction of independent countries that don’t do the west’s bidding.

off topic but FYI:
Paraguay: President Lugo Ousted; UNASUR Won't Recognize Successor; Peasants and Others Protest the Coup
by Yoshie Furuhashi
Ten months to go till the upcoming elections, the Senate of Paraguay dismissed the President of Paraguay, Fernando Lugo, by a vote of 39-4, for allegedly "poor performance in office," in an express impeachment whose legitimacy has been questioned by not only the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) but also the Organization of American States (OAS). ...

poor performance in office??? what utter bull! this is a coup d'etat and not the will of the people

profile of a seditionist?
it doesnt get more blatant than this: former ambassador to syria Ford...gets a award for helping to destabilise Syria with armed jihadi terrorists: Substitite an iranian ambassador for Ford and US for Syria and what do you think the US regime would think?...close down the iranian embassy and declare war?

The announcement from the JFK Presidential Library that he was one of the winners of the JFK Profile in Courage award , reads, in part:

A few short weeks after his arrival” (surely coincidentally) “a wave of pro-democracy protests swept through the Middle East and public protests in Syria launched an uprising …

Ford’s robust diplomacy on the ground in Syria centered on a strong show of support for the Syrian opposition movement.

Ford’s physical presence in Hama, without official sanction from the Syrian government, functioned as a visible statement of support (for the opposition.) Ford continued to support the opposition by attending protestor funerals, speaking with Syrians on the ground and through social media, and educating Americans via satellite images and descriptions of the conflict on the Embassy’s official website

Hi Brian,

"Substitite an iranian ambassador for Ford and US for Syria and what do you think the US regime would think?...close down the iranian embassy and declare war?"

Absolutely. The double standards are glaring. 'We' have the right to massively intervene in the affairs of other sovereign states, but 'they' have no such right. Just imagine if the Syrian or Iranian govts were supporting violent insurgents in Britain or the US?

the genocide in syria makes its way to australia in a way even FM Bob Carr cant miss:
HE small Alawite community in Australia say they have been targeted by vicious "jihadist" attacks as the bloody Syrian conflict spills over into Arabic communities in Sydney and Melbourne.

Alawi community leaders say the decision of Foreign Minister Bob Carr to expel Syria's charge d'affaires, Jawdat Ali, last month, after the massacre of an estimated 92 men, women and children in the village of Houla, inflamed threats to "hunt down" Alawis in Australia.

Attacks over the past four months include a young father being shot in the doorway of his home in Sydney's west after a heated Facebook exchange and a prayer room being fire-bombed in Melbourne's north.

eve Bob Carr cant be so blind as not to see the reality of syria being recreated in how can he attack the syrian govt while ignoring the FSA terrorism? is he corrupt?
