U.S. Mainstream Media Propaganda on Syria and Russia
“The cleverest trick used in propaganda was to accuse your enemies of doing themselves what you are doing.”
—Goebbels, 1934, Hitlers Propaganda Minister
It seems the U.S. Mainstream Corporate Media (MSM) wants to blame Russia for nearly everything today. Russia (NOT US) did it they scream! War Crimes! Russia is blamed for exposing corruption in the Democratic National Committee that sabotaged Bernie Sanders run for President. We blame Russia for chaos in the Middle East really caused by U.S. regime change wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. Is regime change in Iran, Russia, and China next? We blame Russia for Wikileaks exposing information that citizens have a right to know in a Democratic society. We blame Russia for interfering in U.S. elections. Is Russia to blame for Donald Trump and Bill Clinton’s sex escapades and Hillary Clinton deleting 33,000 State Dept. emails about possible pay-to-play donations to the Clinton Foundation, providing arms to ISIS, what will benefit Israel, etc. that she didn’t want made public?
The U.S. MSM is very good at blaming and demonizing others, especially people like Russian president, Vladimir Putin, and Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad. The real purpose is to attack anyone who opposes U.S. dominance as the world’s sole superpower. Somehow the U.S. believes it has the right to decide who should rule or not rule in countries all around the world. Who or what gives the U.S. that right?
Don’t be fooled by MSM propaganda. Do we really want to provoke a war with Russia, a country that has 7000 nuclear weapons? Have we forgotten what massive destruction (the end of civilization) would result globally from a nuclear war?
It’s time to come to our collective senses and put a stop to propaganda and the politics of nuclear brinkmanship. Former Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, warned this week about the rising threat of Nuclear war. He said “The World Has Reached A Dangerous Point.” Gorbachev urged the sides to resume dialogue and push towards demilitarization and complete nuclear disarmament.
Peace Now! War is a Crime! No More War!
