Mission Accomplished, no. 3

By mike flugennockMonday - April 16th, 2018Categories: Trumpism, media, war and peace

Just before the latest round of US bombing in Syria, I found myself appalled at a sabre-rattling op-ed in the Washington Post bearing the bloodthirsty declaration “We Need To Go Big In Syria. North Korea Is Watching”. Never mind that we’re bombing Syria again despite no real evidence of chemical attacks, and before the OPCW inspectors could get in to investigate — hell, evidence is for squares these days — the US media have totally shifted from the issue of fabricated chemical attacks to this tinhorn in North Korea who we’re supposed to be scared to death of despite not being able to get his missles to work and whose nuclear arsenal isn’t even 1/10 the size of the US — the only nation in history to have actually used nuclear weapons.

Yeah, let’s make an example of this tinhorn in order to put the fear of god into this other tinhorn — classic crass schoolyard bullying. What else could you expect from an old GW Bush flunkie?

White Helmet

By mike flugennockSunday - June 25th, 2017Categories: Middle East, War on Terror, media, war and peace

So, yet again, Western media darlings the White Helmets have been caught assisting ISIS and other militant groups in beheadings and decaptitated body disposals in Syria.

Still, the White Helmets are the good guys, right? I mean, the US media told us so, and Netflix made that documentary about them that won an Oscar n’stuff, right?

Right?
