David Swanson takes on the latest Hollywood tone-deaf exploitation of life and death issues…

Arms Dealing Is Subject of Hollywood Comedy

And it’s true that the (based on a true) story depicted in the film ends up in disaster. But we never see the slightest hint at how arming people to commit mass murder might harm anyone, any more than Wall Street crime movies introduce you to people made homeless by Wall Street scams. The moral lesson of War Dogs seems to be: Abide by proper bureaucratic procedures, buy the instruments of death from approved nations, maintain propriety and transparency in death dealing, and you’ll get only slightly less stinking rich than these clowns did.

War is first and foremost about propaganda, dividing the world into worthy victims and unworthy victims–who are ignored. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been massacred in the completely illegal proxy war waged on Syria by AMERICA, its NATO allies and its GULF TYRANT PARTNERS. Follow the weapons. I wrote about the bogus propaganda offensive back in 2012:

Syria, The First Casualty

Let’s recall the outrageous mass murder that prompted that article, shall we?

Numerous civilians were killed on May 25, 2012 in Al-Houla, Syria.  Immediately, the Assad regime was blamed (as always) by the opposition public relations sources, those so-called “activists.”  The Syrian government’s artillery fire was noted by the United Nations.   The world’s press picked up on this opposition “activist” story, and soon the Syrian ambassadors were booted out of the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Exactly like a rehearsed and coordinated bit of political theater.”

But, of course, the Syrian government wasn’t the perpetrator of the atrocity. America’s psychotic head-chopping Sunni terrorists were.

“Then a Russian news team investigated exactly who was killed, how and why. This investigation was followed by a German investigation by FAZ, one of Germany’s largest newspapers, and both reports come to a very different conclusion than that of the “activists.”  While the murders of women and children were brutal, barbaric and disgusting, it is the perpetrators that matter here. The civilians were not killed by artillery shells, but by small arms fire and/or knives.  They were not killed because of their opposition to the regime, but were families known for supporting Assad.  Several were Shiite living in the predominantly Sunni neighborhood. “

The propaganda lies have only gotten progressively worse since 2012. The only reason that particular Syrian boy above is all over the world’s press today is that his plight can be blamed on Russia, the real enemy in these illegal, covert wars of aggression. As if Russia began the conflict, or even wants it to continue. Utter nonsense. The true perpetrators are in Washington, London, Paris, Riyadh, Ankara.

Why ISIS Exists: The Double Game

CNN proclaimed the child “the face of Syria’s civil war,” while the anchor-woman theatrically burst into tears recounting his story.

The New York Timescalled him “a symbol of Aleppo’s suffering,” while USA Today published a short editor’s note reading, “This Syrian boy is Omran. Will you pay attention now?”

More direct in its approach was the British daily Telegraph, which headlined an article: “For the sake of Aleppo’s children, we must try again to impose a no-fly zone in Syria.”

“When the US military killed 73 civilians in Syria last month, images of the carnage, like the one below, didn’t make the cut, for some strange reason.”

The latest Red Scare tactics have moronic Democrats accusing everyone and their grandma of working for Putin. This should be too pathetic to bother with…

Democrats’ Tactic of Accusing Critics of Kremlin Allegiance Has Long, Ugly History in U.S.

My problem with Hedges concerns his cowardice over the September 11th Treason:

 

Message to Hedges:

Hedges has been a coward over the 9/11 Treason. This betrayal discredits him and others like Noam Chomsky, who also sold lies, the most dangerous lies, by letting them get away with it.

There is no way to stop the gains of the empire if you let them get away with massive attacks on the “homeland.” The ignorance Hedges displays is staggering. You ceded the entire debate to them on 9/12/01 and made yourself irrelevant. We had a chance to stop them. They allowed terror attacks on NYC and the Pentagon, and perhaps aided and abetted. They committed high Treason to cover it up and protect the Saudi sponsors. The CIA hid the hijackers from exposure for 16-18 months — ADMITTED TO SINCE 2005!

These facts render your efforts moot, Mr.Hedges. You will get exactly nowhere by allowing massive false flag terror attacks to occur without opposition. Your efforts are little more than the chatter of the Internet. Interesting entertainment. Nothing more.
