.. by their deeds ...
.. shall you know them ...
.. and by their language too
Thesis/Subtitle: more by what they do, than what they say
Concomitant: not just what they say but how they say it
Corollary: crooked language identifies PRopagandists
1st, the unimaginable *horror*: The walls of our house are made of AAC; it stands for autoclaved aerated concrete. It is a superb insulator (house can be kept cool in summer, warm as toast in winter with low energy bills all 'round), it's a handy building-material too, since it is light (density ~0.5).
BUT: An AK47 bullet would go straight through it, and a rocket-propelled grenade would blow it to bits.
The walls of buildings blown-up in Libya and Syria look to be made of the same sort of material.
AK47s and RPGs seem to be the weapons of choice, for the so-called "lightly armed rebels" (also "UK military advisers to help Libyan rebels" - last year, it's the trend), which can blow up tanks, and we see the damage inflicted on innocent citizens' houses. Any connection, do you think? Now imagine similar inflicted on your house and family. I think it's not really possible to imagine your own family blown to bloody shreds - but that's what the US not just 'supports' but actually does, see "Shock'n whore" in Iraq, what F+UK/NATO did to Libya, what the CIA is helping to do to Syria (thnx NYT, with Iran said to be next target, thnx Wesley Clark.)
Now we read about "nearly two dozen man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS);" Turkey Supplies Syrian Rebels With Air Defense Missiles, "possibly initiated by Turkey, Saudi Arabia or Qatar" - thanks, but "No, thanks!" to external arms suppliers. MANPADS are ideal, of course, for use in heavily populated cities where the rebels like to 'set up shop.'
Iran offers backing to Syria as regional ally
Updated August 08, 2012 10:37:15
«Iran and Syria have accused Turkey and some Gulf states of arming the Syrian rebels, in collusion with Israel and the United States.»
[AusBC/'news' August 08, 2012 10:37:15]
Comment: Note the language "accused" and the tone "collusion."
«Another rebel commander, Abu Ali, said snipers at the main Saleheddine traffic roundabout were preventing the rebels from bringing in reinforcements and supplies.»
[AusBC/'news' August 08, 2012 10:37:15 ibid.]
Comment 1: As if rebels would try to use main traffic arteries? This phrase exists *only* to accuse govt. forces of deploying snipers - without saying so directly. Recall my "not what but how" above.
Comment 2: Do we really wonder where the rebels' "reinforcements and supplies" come from? Then see photo of *rebel* sniper below. Snipers fire from cover, with highly accurate, high-power weapons, as this rebel photo shows (*not* with an AK47; note 'scope & detail - NATO issue, perhaps?) Contrast to "lightly armed" rebels. Then, recall that the 'Western' MSM+PFBCs report *govt.* forces in both Libya and Syria deploy snipers, who 'kill their own people,' without even bothering to say "allegedly." Q: Just how credible is that? Q2: Why? Q3: Cui bono? Media use such phrases primarily to shock & dismay their target audience - us, we the people.
Comment 3: We *know* that 'Western' govts + MSM + PFBCs lie; recall Houla. Carr kicked Syrian diplomats out, before it was established (thnx, FAZ) that "Rebels Responsible for Houla Massacre" - contrast to following:
Massacre fears as Syrian troops assault Aleppo Updated July 29, 2012 05:31:44
«World leaders are worried about a repeat of other massacres in Syria this year, after government troops slaughtered civilians in the towns of Taramseh, Houla, Homs, and Kubeir, among others.»
[AusBC/'news' July 29, 2012 05:31:44]
Comment: Looks to me, very much like an *outright*, deliberate lie: "after government troops ... Houla." Note again; blank statement, no 'allegedly,' nevertheless *wrong* and a lie.
General comment: MSM + PFBCs' reports often say their reports 'cannot be confirmed.' It hardly matters, for the damage - to us, we the people, is done, just as effectively if not more so, by cleverly constructed lies, like 'viagra-assisted rape' was reported in Libya.
Fazit: The (corrupt&venal) MSM + PFBCs convict themselves - if/when carefully enough observed. As clear and conscious PRopagandists, they make themselves guilty by the accessory mechanism - of the 'main game' which is 'regime-change' by genocidal methods aka murder for spoil.
PS The war in Syria would probably not even have started, without US subversion and fomenting - and would most likely stop within microsecs of the US command to the aggressive, part mercenary, fully psychopathic rebels: "STOP!"
PPS This says all of the above and more, in a much more accessible way:
War Propaganda and the "Friends of Syria": Construction of a Fictitious Public Consensus
Globalization exposed as self-serving, driven by elitist special interests.
by Tony Cartalucci
July 8, 2012
«NED and Open Society's role in supporting expanded intervention by the West to achieve its long sought after regime change indicates that it is not in fact any sort of "international community" that has engineered and supported the West's agenda in Syria, but the special interests represented by NED and Open Society - namely the corporate-financier interests of the Fortune 500. This same gambit has been used to one degree or another around the globe in an attempt to harness the perceived legitimacy of NGOs, the extensive propaganda network the Western press maintains, and the concepts of "human rights," "democracy," and "freedom" to couch ambitions of neo-imperial global hegemony.
Since it is these special interests that masquerade as the "international community," then indeed the "international community" has failed Syria - since from the beginning it had every intention to mire Syria in sectarian violence, political destabilization, economic ruination, and eventual social and political collapse. Since 2007, this so-called "international community" has been conspiring against world peace, as duly noted in Seymour Hersh's New Yorker article, "The Redirection (2007)." In it, it was clearly stated that the United States, Israel, and their Gulf State proxies, particularly Saudi Arabia, were already building an armed secular extremist front with which to wage violent subversion upon Lebanon, Syria, and Iran.
What we are left with is an overt campaign of military aggression, in direct violation of world peace and any norm of international law, real or contrived.»
Comment 1: You should, as usual, read it all.
Comment 2: Says some 'nice' words about AI, NED&Co and NGOs, a bit indirectly ("corporate-financier interests of the Fortune 500") about the mainly US M/I/C/4a†-plex, globalisation, neo-imperial and other swindles.
Comment 3: Recall that there's nothing élite about crime or criminals.
Comment 4: Surely, the criminals 'running the show' are short a few kangaroos in the top paddock - sooo where are the really clever ones - those who could mount effective countervailing efforts to oppose the US/Z/SQSHsO *regimes* = lying, criminal scum?
ELO/Os = hapless erstwhile legal owner/occupiers
M/I/C/4a†-plex = military, industrial, Congress (US-speak for parliament), 4 = 4th estate = MSM+PFBCs, 'a' = academia incl. think-tanks, † = the churches.
MSM = mainstream media (print and broadcast), aka 'corrupt&venal'
PFBCs = publicly-financed broadcasters, like the AusBC
ppp-dd'd = pushed propaganda paradigm dumbed-down
PRopaganda = PR + propaganda, usual qualifier: 'lying'
SQSHsO = snivelling quisling sycophantic hangers-on
US-MMH = Media (aka press, radio + TV), Madison Ave., Hollywood
US&/Zs = the US of A and/or Zionists; sometimes indistinguishable
XS-CO2-CCC = excess CO2 climate-change catastrophe
A rebel sniper; *not* with an AK47; note 'scope & detail - NATO issue, perhaps?
