Mass Murderer Meets With Satrap To Shed Crocodile Tears
"U.S. President Barack Obama has spoken to Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and expressed his “sorrow” over recent civilian deaths in NATO air strikes in the war-torn country.
Besides, Mr. Obama discussed with him a series of issues including drawdown of troops and the progress in the war against terrorism in the aftermath of the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
“Obama expressed his sorrow over tragic civilian casualties, most recently in Helmand province,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters at his daily news conference."
Here is the photograph released with the above:
Just like citizens in Russia during the Soviet era we should look carefully at photos released to the media. Back then people learned to understand who was in favor with the regime and who was out of favor by the lineup during May Day parades - men standing closer to the general secretary up and comers. Pushed to the fringes meant you were history.
Apparently americans are now supposed to decipher information in the same manner because simply everything that emanates from the bowels of power in this deeply sick system is strictly and tightly controlled. Billions of our tax dollars are spent to make sure the 'messages' in the media convey the intended content and wording and photos are rigidly pored over.
Which gets to the above picture. Sitting slightly higher than Karzai, Obama seems pensive while his toady appears to hang on what the president seems to be saying. But notice the upraised shoe pointed at the Afghan president. Throughout the middle east and Asia this is a gesture of total disrespect, and nobody can convince me this photo wasn't vetted assiduously before release. Americans probably won't catch the message implied here. It's meant to send a clear statement to the wogs, just like sending in the death drones the day after Pakistan demanded that the US stop doing so, and the clear implication aside from the misleading headline to this piece of propaganda is that empire truly doesn't give a rat's ass about innocent Afghan death.
