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You can read the rest of John Pilger’s brilliant new NS piece, on how US and British democracies have been replaced by an extremism hell-bent on the destruction of democracy, here.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