Contrary to the idiotic myth of a 'liberal' media, main stream news in all it's forms has kept up a steady barrage of propaganda to serve the interests of the power elite, meaning fascism. The 'news' is meant to keep us where our overlords want us - entranced with inconsequential crap and ignorant to the most crucial events of the day. The coming apocalypse in the middle east is being framed by the manipulators as a showdown between the US and Israel, the good guys, against Iran and any other muslim contingent as the bad guys.
Israel is consistently referred to positively in the media, even when it's doing some seriously ugly things
. AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has such a stranglehold on the US government that candidates for higher office in america must hand in position papers on how they view american/Israeli relations. The zionists there and in the US with their christian dispensationists allies drive the policies of both countries. Both parties here kneel in fealty to what is obviously their primary master. But is Israel really the best buddy of the US? Kurt Nimmo disagrees:
"Never mind Israel attacked the USS Liberty in 1967, killing 34 Americans and wounding 171, and never mind Israel was caught red-handed in 1954 plotting to blow up U.S. targets and presumably killing Americans in Egypt, and never mind, according to a German public television (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) documentary, the main suspects in the 1986 Berlin disco bombing that killed two U.S. soldiers, an event that provided a pretext for a U.S. air assault on Libya, worked for Israeli intelligence (with more than a little help from American spooks), and never mind that in response to Jonathan Pollard selling U.S. secrets to Israel resulting in the execution of CIA agents in the Soviet Union, Israel granted Pollard citizenship and continues to pester U.S. officials and presidents, demanding the traitor be released, and finally never mind that Israel used nuclear blackmail to force Kissinger and Nixon to airlift supplies during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
Never mind. Americans like to be stabbed in the back."
That's merely a partial list of what our 'best friend' has done to us. Plenty of evidence is out in the public domain proving a deep Israeli connection to 9/11. Yet Israel is always given a pass when Black Tuesday comes up. I don't think Michael Moore even mentioned it once in his fahrenheit 911.
Decades of constantly painting this racist, apartheid state as a beacon of democracy fighting a desperate battle against swarthy terrorist hordes have convinced unaware americans to root for their plucky little chum.US poll: Israel alone named 'vital friend'
- "A Gallup poll surveying US opinion on geopolitics singles out Israel as only foreign nation Americans feel favorably toward and also say that what happens there is vitally important to the US."
Hand in hand with boosting our bosom buddy's luster comes the demonizing of all things Iranian. Unwary souls watching Fox news think Iran either has the bomb, will get it shortly or at least want the bomb real badly are wrong on all counts. MSM did that intentionally by switching back and forth between nuclear power generation
a nuclear power with scary Islamic bombs. The propagandists thought that hey, nuclear threats worked great with the build up to Iraq, lets scare them a second time around.
That Ahmadinejad misquote where it was twisted around to him saying he wanted to 'wipe Israel off the map' has acquired a life of it's own, casually referred to by people who know better but repeat it anyway. This is classic propaganda effort to turn him into a cartoon villain - the american ignorati needs their enemy to have a face, so they can avoid the loud screaming as the rest of the population gets bombed.
Remember last year's yellow badge stupidity
when propagandists said jews had to wear identity colors in Iran? A complete lie. How about in the last couple of weeks when they tried to convince the gullible that Shiite Iranians were giving Sunnis the bombs that were killing americans? Total bullshit. But this constant barrage of swill seems to be working - polls
show more and more mouth breathers think Iran is a looming threat to mom and apple pie. At least here in this country.
Now it comes out that the US has been lying
to the International Atomic Energy Agency about Iran's intentions and capabilities since 2002, although MSM sources never get that blunt with language and pussy foot around this propaganda flop:
"American officials privately acknowledge that much of their evidence on Iran's nuclear plans and programs remains ambiguous, fragmented and difficult to prove."
In other words more bullshit.
This whole fabricated UN standoff was a red herring to begin with anyway. Iran signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and it's third pillar expressly allows signers to enrich nuclear material as fuel for nuclear reactors. They've done nothing illegal by international law
but that won't be seen in your local newspapers any time soon as the main focus is all on the fascist's faux outrage. Any more pressure at the UN for sanctions will likely be vetoed by China and Russia, so you know why the US has been steaming dozens of warships to the Gulf.
The oncoming disaster and it's dreadful ramifications really has nothing to do with Iran wanting to turn on the light bulbs anyway. It's all about making Israel the only game in town. Israel, the now acknowledged nuclear power who didn't
sign the NPT, who wants to lord over only balkanized, destroyed neighboring countries, who wants us to keep sending hard cash to them and plenty of soldiers to fight their wars. We can expect lots more propaganda in this manufactured conflict, and if the Iranian chimera doesn't react to all the deliberate provocation to get the war on, well, our good buddy Israel has abundant tricks up it's sleeve.
