.. lie = deceit = dishonest = loser ...
.. it's all in the framing; crooked frame = argument fail ...
.. one lie is enough; no harmless lies but to lie with intent is criminal
Thesis/Subtitle: means, motive, opportunity + modus operandi & cui bono = crime descriptors
Concomitant: criminal behaviour occurs everywhere someone gets hurt
Musing: “There are eight squillion frames in the blogosphere; this presents one of them”
Framing (1) «Framing effect is an example of cognitive bias, in which people react differently to a particular choice depending on whether it is presented as a loss or as a gain.»
Framing (2) «Framing, a term used in media studies, sociology, and psychology, refers to the social construction of a social phenomenon by mass media sources or specific political or social movements or organizations. It is an inevitable process of selective influence over the individual's perception of the meanings attributed to words or phrases. A frame defines the packaging of an element of rhetoric in such a way as to encourage certain interpretations and to discourage others.»
There are two frames in consideration here; a) 'what they say,' and b) 'what they actually do.'
Case study 1:
Martin Bryant (Port Arthur massacre of 28 April 1996.)
Anders Breivik (Oslo bombing & Utøya massacre of 22 July 2011)
James Holmes (Aurora massacre of 20 July 2012)
Q: What's in common? A: Individuals + presumed psychopathy; innocents slaughtered.
Public reaction: Massive outrage, wailing and tears.
Case study 2:
Palestine (alien invasion, pre- and post- UNGA181 29 November 1947)
Iraq (alien invasion, 19 March 2003)
Libya (alien bombing, 19 March 2011)
Syria (alien subversion, before and since anti-government protests which began in March 2011)
Iran ("All options!" threats, ever since the Iranians took control of their country back from the US-puppet regime in 1979)
Q: What's in common? A: US&/Zs + presumed psychopathy; innocents slaughtered and land/property/resources alienated from ELO/Os = sovereign owners. In Iran, the aggressive war against the Iranian people is so far 'only' mostly covert, but people are already being killed - by the US/Z aggressors and their proxies.
Public reaction: Not much; at best 'resigned acceptance.'

Report: Syrian Rebels Responsible for Houla Massacre
Eyewitness accounts and admissions from supposed collaborators say Sunni rebels tried to frame the Assad regime
by John Glaser, June 09, 2012
«“According to eyewitness accounts,” the FAZ report continues, “the massacre occurred during this time. Those killed were almost exclusively from families belonging to Houla’s Alawi and Shia minorities. Over 90% of Houla’s population are Sunnis. Several dozen members of a family were slaughtered, which had converted from Sunni to Shia Islam. Members of the Shomaliya, an Alawi family, were also killed, as was the family of a Sunni member of the Syrian parliament who is regarded as a collaborator.”
The report continues: “Immediately following the massacre, the perpetrators are supposed to have filmed their victims and then presented them as Sunni victims in videos posted on the internet.”
Initial eyewitness accounts of the massacre, relayed by major western media outlets and Human Rights Watch, described the massacre as having been the work of Syrian forces and their heavy artillery. But other eyewitness accounts, like those from members of the Monastery of St. James in Qara, Syria, said the attack came from Sunni militants who then tried to frame it as a massacre by the regime, presumably in the hopes that it would provoke a foreign intervention to unseat Assad.»
Comment 1: Non-MSM report based on an FAZ-report (ex-Germany), neither widely circulated.
Comment 2: This report shows that not only are there different *opinions* 'on offer' = being pushed, mainly by the MSM+PFBCs, but entirely different 'fact sets.' As has been pointed out: Opinion may be free, but facts are fixed. IF different 'facts-sets' are presented THEN at least one set *must* contain lies.

The Enmity Conspiracy, or How War with Iran Became ‘Inevitable’
July 21, 2012
By Trita Parsi
«What Iran Sees
In the case of Iran’s view of the U.S., the assumed goal is the destruction of the country and replacement of the current regime. All America’s actions are believed to serve this ultimate objective. America is systematic, precise and callous in its pursuit of regime change and the defeat of Iran, the Iranians believe.
What America and the West See
Similarly, the U.S. assumes that all Iranian actions are geared towards winning time to advance their nuclear program and present a nuclear fait accompli.»
Comment 1: A bit different; a so-called 'high-power' commentator giving an attempted 'nuanced' assessment.
Comment 2: This is an example of 'what they say' (the US-'West' version) vs. 'what they actually do' (the Iranian version).
Comment 3: From above, 'one lie is enough;' there is a glaring lie in "the 'West' suspects Iran wants a bomb" meme, in that IF Iran were to A-bomb Israel THEN the retalliation would turn Iran 'into a sheet of radioactive glass' = destroy the country and kill most of the population. Nobody in this world is that stupid, to go down such a path - yet that's the 'complete lie-stopper' almost never mentioned in the MSM+PFBCs.
Discussion: We are drowning in a lie-lake presented to us by our so-called 'leadership,' via and often *actively assisted* by the MSM+PFBCs, no more so than on the Z-crimes against the ELO/Os of Palestine. To lie is to misrepresent fictions as facts, to deny actual facts is done by denialists; both are specialities of hasbarah. Vis-à-vis Israel, perhaps the most bizarre lie is "That Israel seeks peace with its neighbours." Again, all we need is one lie here, and all hasbarah falls in a heap: *Because* Israel squats on 'improperly alienated' (aka stolen) land/property, AND the hapless ELO/Os (including heirs & successors) maintain that their land/property should properly revest, THEN Israel is committed to *permanent* war = contradicts the Z's risible 'peace-fantasy.' Proof: As hasbarahists themselves love to say, the moment Israel disarms is the moment it ceases to exist. The single exception to this scenario is: Unless Israel fully recompenses the ELO/Os, pays acceptable reparations and says a sincere "Sorry!" Now *that's* a practical peace-plan.
Recalling means, motive, opportunity + modus operandi & cui bono, what of Case study 1 vs. Case study 2?
In case study 1, people wonder 'what possible motive?' That the perpetrators are psychopaths is generally accepted, but other than apparent perverse glee at killing, or killing as political act, perhaps, there is no 'normal payback' - like $s, say.
In contrast, case study 2 has multiple motives which I summarise as 'murder for spoil,' the Zs for soil & the US for oil. As usual, 'it is not so simple;' the US also seeks hegemony (aka wants to rule the world), eventually to conquer both Russia and China. The proof is hidden in plain sight; recall 'what they say' vs. 'what they actually do.' What they claim is to be seeking truth, justice & democracy, what they actually do is to lie, destroy, steal (even if only 'control' over) resources, and otherwise dictate to sycophants, victims and the wider world.
Fazit: The world is more than war - but not much more, since the US/Z wars are taking precedence and preventing the world from 'moving on.' (Neoliberalism (generalised; + globalisation, financialisation & massive banking swindles) = ruining economies across the world even including the US, then there's the XS-CO2-CCC = excess CO2 climate-change catastrophe.) The US/Z PRopaganda-methodology has changed little since Bernays ("conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses") on one hand, and "the Big Lie" on another. On 'modus operandi & cui bono,' the answers are 'always variations on the same' and 'not us, we the people.'
The US/Zs criminality *must* be stopped - 'or else' is obvious.
ELO/Os = hapless erstwhile legal owner/occupiers
MSM = mainstream media (print and broadcast)
PFBCs = publicly-financed broadcasters like AusBC
ppp-dd'd = pushed propaganda paradigm dumbed-down
PRopaganda = PR + propaganda
SQSHsO = snivelling quisling sycophantic hangers-on
US&/Zs = the US of A and/or Zionists
XS-CO2-CCC = excess CO2 climate-change catastrophe
hide bigger sins
the biggest sin is to kill
