Much to write on Syria as it spirals out of control, but a couple of articles on propaganda.
Western intelligence has been using Islamic jihads openly for 40 years, but most people are too brainwashed to see the obvious. Afganistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechens/Russia, Libya, ISIS, and now Syria. These were just the latest incarnations of the techniques perfected by the Israelis, funding and arming the worst militants to keep the perpetual terror state going (and to take more land from innocents).
We have two stories that show in limited way how deep the deep state runs. These two articles hint at just how much secret budgets (stolen from us taxpayers), these degenerates have at their disposal and how overwhelming the propaganda power they wield over poor countries.
First, from the Guardian:
Government contractors effectively run a press office for opposition fighters but communications conceal UK’s role…
One British source with knowledge of the contracts in action said the government was essentially running a “Free Syrian army press office”…..
Much of the material produced under these contracts is day-to-day wartime propaganda, aimed at Syrian civilian and military audiences. It includes bulletins of successful military engagements, or videos of opposition fighters handing out food.
Some media, however, serve an additional military purpose, two sources familiar with the projects said. For example, a video of a shoulder-to-air missile shooting down a regime helicopter signals to those inside Syria that the group is well-armed and effective. But it also sends a message to those arming the group. “That’s good PR to go back to the Pentagon,” the insider said.
Looks like a classically run coup attempt. We are only getting some limited hang-out, the rest of the story is of course much worse. We know the intelligence agencies were aiming to put in a Salfists state long before the trouble started in Syria as has been discussed before.
“US intelligence predicted the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), but instead of clearly delineating the group as an enemy, the report envisions the terror group as a US strategic asset.” (insurge intelligence)
The second story, Us paid over $500mm to create fake Al-Qaeda videos and Pr:
An explosive new report reveals how the U.S. government paid a British public relations company linked to right-wing politics and repressive regimes more than $500 million from American taxpayers to spearhead a top-secret propaganda campaign in Iraq.
Bell Pottinger, a London-based P.R. firm, created fake videos that appeared to be the work of al-Qaida, the Islamist extremist group formerly headed by Osama bin Laden. It also created news stories that looked as though they were produced by Arab media outlets, and distributed them through Middle Eastern news networks. (salon)
They have to create fake videos because the whole movement is an intelligence crafted political tool. Can you imagine the scale of $500+mm ! Again, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Propaganda as News
All news items are propaganda today. We have completely devolved into a fake state run for the oligarchy who uses are own money and resources against us. We are quickly heading to some event in Syria — for which endless lies and propaganda are in the news with higher frequency. With the West failing to overthrow Assad with their jihadis, we now are the cusp of the event we have been predicting about Syria — some larger conflagration that would also involve Israel and the Temple Mount and a possible longer-term open war against Muslims.
