You may have noticed that I'm keeping a prudent silence in the case of Syria. Of course part of the problem is that the most militant activists are fundamentalist fascists paid by Saudi Arabia and the CIA (there's also a legitimate non-fascist opposition I have been told but it's hard to discern). But the main problem is that much of what we are told may not be true.
For example, Random Pottings denounces the following manipulation by a "reputed" (ha!) Zionist Imperialist medium as the BBC:
This image has been presented in today May 27 BBC (it seems already removed and replaced by a similar one) as illustrating the massacre that happen in Houla, Syria.
Its author Marco di Lauro knows better. This is the true description:
Al Musayyib, Iraq - May 27, 2003
An Iraqi child jumps over a line of hundreds of bodies, in a school where they have been transported from a mass grave, to be identified. They were discovered in the desert in the outskirts of Al Musayyib, 40 km south of Baghdad. It has been estimated that between 10,000 and 15,000 Iraqis had been reported missing in the region south of Baghdad. People have been searching for days for identity cards or other clues among the skeletons to try to find the remains of brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters and even children who disappeared when Saddam's government crushed a Shi'ite uprising following the 1991 Gulf War.
But also how many lies we are fed each day by the "free media" which are, I must realize, anything but free. For example I find myself dispelling every other day misconceptions about the Greek welfare system (what welfare system and what the hell?!) fed by the Anglosaxon and German propaganda machinery under apparent command of the Goldman Sachs puppetmasters.
It's as easy as going to Eurostat and checking the facts but many people just believe what that shitty "free media" says at face value.
Pathetic! But also extremely dangerous...
