Thesis/Subtitle: democracy, the corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs and ppp-dd'ing
Corollary: Of three prerequisites; 1) fully & fairly informed voters, 2) sufficiently wide choice of candidates and 3) elected representatives who implement the will of the majority (protecting minorities) - we have *none* = our so-called democracies are *sham*.
Proof: With 'regime-changes' in US, UK, Aus & F, we *still* have more war, more of the time. Palestine is an open sore = cancer on the ME (started around UNGA181 then picked at ever since - by largely immigrant Zionists = alien, aggressive invasion), then across the years and now post 9/11 Afghanistan, Iraq & Libya - all smashed, some still being smashed. Iraq remains a ruin, as does Libya ("IPS - Human Rights Now Worse In Libya") and Afghanistan was never anything else but a ruin, at least since the CIA started al-Qaeda. Latest US/Z-project is Syria; read on...
No going back in battle for Damascus: rebels
By Middle East correspondent Anne Barker, wires
Updated July 18, 2012 09:22:48
«Syria's rebel army says it has launched a full scale offensive to "liberate" the capital, dubbing the campaign "Operation Damascus Volcano".
Fighting in the capital appears to be worsening, with reports that government forces are deploying tanks and helicopter gunships as they fight to regain control of rebel-held areas.
"There is no going back. The Damascus battle has priority for us. We have started the operation to liberate Damascus," rebel commander Colonel Qassem Saadeddine said.
The Syrian government has vowed it will never let Damascus fall into rebel hands, and one Syrian diplomat, who has now defected to the opposition, has warned that president Bashar al-Assad's regime will not hesitate to use chemical weapons on its own people if it finds itself cornered.»
Comment 1: My 1st reaction, to any of these sad Syrian stories is "This is awful; gotta be stopped!"
Comment 2: My 2nd reaction invariably is "It could be stopped instantly, right now!" - IF the US wanted it stopped. The US would call-off their CIA dogs of war, stop the recruitment, transport and entry of mercenaries and matériel (supplied by Saudi Arabia & Qatar, say) via allied (Turkey, say) or controlled countries (Iraq, say). And, The US+proxies would stop pouring psyop propaganda at the world via the corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs = mainly through our TVs (lying s**t gushing out, to land then congeal on our carpets). The fact that none of it, attacks and propaganda both ever stops - tells us?
Comment 3: The AusBC reporter Barker lives in Israel; her 'hosts' hope to benefit - Israel covets the (illegally) occupied Golan Heights and beyond. Ergo, Barker sits in 'enemy territory' - so I wonder how and where she gets her psyop propaganda from? PRopaganda like "will not hesitate to use chemical weapons on its own people," an obvious bit of lying fear-mongering, *plus* setting up a possible black-op.
Comment 4: There are no 'honest brokers' in this story; Annan has gone to Iran then Russia, Ban Ki-moon to China - to seek acquiescence to agressive war against Syria. Q: May we wonder what they are offering as sticks and/or carrots? But suffice it to say, the UN + selected NGOs are now, as they began in 2001+, some latest Libya, all firmly on the pro-war side - which they 'self-dignify' with risible 'responsibility to protect.' Proof of this is seen in A, I, L & now S: Smashed infrastructure and mass-murdered = dead innocents (oh, so cynically termed 'collaterals') - *because* that's all that bombs and bullets can do.
Comment 5: My theme here is 'ignorance' especially as applied to democracy, and the criminality we are immersed in. *No* worthwhile project requires a lie-screen, but the US(Z) war against Syria is *replete* with lies, some of which have now been admitted to, and exposed by, MSM entities like NYT (C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition). Needless to say, even in the middle of confessing sins, the MSM keeps 'catapulting the PRopaganda.'
Comment 6: As well as the 'for-profit' MSM, the PFBCs = publicly-financed broadcasters like AusBC are also 'in on the act.' This tells us that those so-called 'responsible' = the governments *actively allow* PFBCs to *transmit* lies to us, and the 'apogee' is reached when the PFBCs *actively augment* the PRopaganda.
Summary: The situation in Syria is complex; whereas it may be true that the troubles started with so-called 'peaceful, pro-democratic protests,' which may have been countered with more force than was advisable, we can't really know the whole truth because the corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs are simply *not* trustworthy, as *proven* from Palestine, across Iraq to Libya, say. Then, it all went 'bad' when the so-called 'rebels' took up arms (just like Libya). Arms supplied, as the mercenary 'helpers,' from outside = externally supported insurrection/invasion - against a legitimate government. Recall, say, the 'Malayan Emergency,' when 'externals' came - to *support* the government, against purely local 'freedom-fighters.' We know why the US(Zs) want to smash Syria and we know that they are contributing to that smashing (a sub-contracted killer cannot provide distance from the true perpetrators), and IF we know, THEN -
Q: What of Annan, Ban Ki-moon, all the 'Western' governments, *and* their PFBCs?
A1: They all *know* that it's a US(Z) 'inside job,' and they lie to us, by omission and commission, by pretending it's all the demonised Assad's fault, allegedly killing his own people, snipers, tanks, heli-gunships and - possibly coming next as a black-op - deploying chemical weapons.
A2: We all know (or should know, if the trouble to 'look outside' the MSM + PFBCs were taken), that the violence could stop in the smallest part of a pico-sec - IF the US(Zs) + UN + NGOs + SQSHsO wanted it to stop. It doesn't stop; that makes those who could stop it the real criminals, recall "responsibility to protect?"
Musing: As for change, none will never happen without action - see Newton's 1st law: Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless compelled to change that state by external forces acted upon it.
The object to be changed is our whole way of managing our countries; those entrusted with managing them have not 'merely' failed, they are deliberately destructive - to other countries, and to our own populations.
Our so-called 'representatives' show themselves to be tyrants, not working for us but *against* us.
We could try forcing them to behave, but better would be to 'eliminate the middleman' (tumbrels?) and go exclusively to referendums.
Fazit: As for ignorance, *action* is not an option - it's a *must*.

Syrian ministers killed in Damascus bomb attack
By Middle East correspondent Matt Brown, wires
Updated July 18, 2012 23:09:03
«Two groups have claimed responsibility for the explosion.
Liwa al-Islam, an Islamist rebel group whose name means The Brigade of Islam, said in a statement on its Facebook page that it "targeted the cell called the crisis control room in the capital of Damascus."
A spokesman for the group confirmed the claim by telephone.
But the Free Syrian Army (FSA) also claimed responsibility for the attack, according to spokesman Qassim Saadedine.
"This is the volcano we talked about, we have just started," he said.
An FSA statement later announced "the good news of the outstanding operation this morning that targeted the National Security headquarters and the killing" of the officials "responsible for barbaric massacres".»
Comment 1: If two claims are made, one *must* be false = one liar at least. But killers don't care too much about lies - a pre- and post-requisite of all crime.
Comment 2: Bombing targets in towns - usually filled with innocent civilians - was, along with most 'modern terrorism methodology,' invented by the Zionist invaders of Palestine.
Comment 3: We see the barbaric talk (their own words, as they falsely accuse); as soon as the 'peaceful demonstrators' took up arms, they lost any legitimacy. But we know, as in Libya, that those who attack the govt. were a) never peaceful and b) criminal thugs on a mission; here as there externally instigated and supported. One only has to think of the terrible damage caused, the deaths and searing misery for any survivors.
Comment 4: As before, the so-called 'leaders' of the West and corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs need to be brought to book; since the attempted overthrow of Syria is a Nuremberg-class war crime, all those so-called 'responsible,' the perpetrators and their tools alike, should be hung by the neck until dead. Soonest.
PRopaganda = PR + propaganda
MSM = mainstream media (print and broadcast)
PFBCs = publicly-financed broadcasters like AusBC
SQSHsO = snivelling quisling sycophantic hangers-on
ppp-dd'd = pushed propaganda paradigm dumbed- or dumbing-down
