Look here. Not there.

I am having a bit of a chuckle here this morning as I read the Western media from my perch in Italy. The manipulation is so clear! It is classic “look here, not there” journalism. At the center of everyone’s concern now is the Syrian refugee crisis.

Why?

Well, for one thing, it’s a nice distraction, and a good framework for blaming the enemy of the day, currently the Russians. Consequently, we get to wring our hands, see bodies and bombed out neighborhoods.

The media could easily have show photos of bodies and neighborhoods in Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Lebanon, but did not. They could talk about millions of refugees from those countries bombed by the U.S. and its agents, but they don’t. Do not look there! Look here.

Who is bombing out the neighborhoods, killing the children? The U.S. and it’s agents. Why? What has Syria, the Assad government done, to warrant such a bloody attack?

Nothing. Just like Iraq, just like Libya, nothing. It is aggressive war. It is a contemptible crime of the highest order, the type of crime for which toes twitched at the end of ropes at Nuremberg. It is the U.S. and it’s agents at work. Again.

But now our controlled media says “Oh the carnage! Oh, the humanity!” The hypocrisy is of historic proportion.

Why? Please answer, any one of you foreign policy experts, especially those of you who think party politics has any influence in these matters. Why?

Silence. If you are suddenly concerned about the refugee crisis in Syria, but blissfully unaware of the cause, and if you are not aware of similar and much larger crises among Palestinians and Kurds, Iraqis and Libyans and soon enough Yemenis, please be silent. I will know by the lack of comments below who you are.
