The BBC newz (newz, ‘cos it certainty ain’t news) and current department really turns my stomach. Medialens [1, 2, 3] amongst others has consistently uncovered the filth (my words, not their) that gets passed off as journalism, and not only that, but insanely the worlds best journalism – so they would have us believe]. Far from the pinnacle of journalism, it’s the pinnacle of propaganda and downright lies.

Here’s an article stolen from: http://landdestroyer.blogspot.mx/2012/07/bbc-rides-with-al-qaeda-in-aleppo-syria.html (thanks to ICH for publicising it]

BBC Rides with Al Qaeda in Aleppo, Syria

BBC Covers Up War Crimes – Misleads Over Syrian Security Operations.
by Tony CartalucciUpdate: Indeed BBC did not see “MIGs” bombing Aleppo, though it appears they weren’t even anti-tank SU-25’s but rather training aircraft. Aero L-39 Albatros are also not even “Russian-made” as the BBC claimed. The article below has been amended to reflect this information. Read here for more

July 25, 2012 – When big lies must be told, BBC is there. From Iraq to Afghanistan to Libya and now Syria, BBC has paved the way for Western disinformation meant to mange public perception around a war the public would otherwise never support or tolerate.

The BBC, caught on record producing entire “documentaries” on behalf of corporate-financier interests, has already been caught in immense lies regarding the NATO-fueled destabilization of Syria. This includes the disingenuous use of photos from Iraq, to depict a so-called “massacre” in the village of Houla, Syria.

Now, as NATO’s Al Qaeda mercenaries operating under the banner of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” flow over the Turkish-Syrian border in an attempt to overrun the city of Aleppo, BBC is there, attempting to manipulate the public’s perception as the conflict unfolds.

BBC’s Ian Pannell admits he rode with a convoy of milatnt fighters into Aleppo at night. He claims many are desperate for the FSA to succeed, “clamoring for freedom denied by their president,” but concedes many others fear an “Islamic takeover” and sectarian “division and bloodshed.” The latter of course, is self-evident, while the former is the repeated, unfounded mantra of the Western media used to cover up the latter.

Pannell poses amongst staged settings, claiming a single burning tire equates to a barricade set up by the militants (see more on the use of burning tires as propaganda here and here). He concedes that militants are taking to the rooftops with sniper rifles in the districts they claim they control – begging one to wonder where else terrorist snipers have been, and how many “sniper” deaths have been mistakenly blamed on the government.

Covering Up FSA War Crimes

Pannell then attempts to cover up serious war crimes committed by the FSA militants he is traveling with, claiming that men the FSA arbitrarily rounded up while “seeking revenge” were “suspected Shabiha,” harking back to Libya’s NATO-backed terrorist death squads rounding up and killing Libya’s black communities in orgies of sectarian genocide – which outlets like the BBC defended as simply rebels targeting “suspected African mercenaries.” Pannell papers over what he just reported with the unqualified claim that there is “little justice” on either side. What became of the FSA’s victims is not revealed.

Image: From BBC’s Ian Pannell – young men “suspected” of being “Shabiha” are rounded up as the FSA “seeks revenge.” BBC fails categorically to explain how NATO-backed terrorists can “liberate” a city that is admittedly pro-government – but it appears it will be done through terrorism, brutality, mass murder, and intimidation. 

….

BBC reporter Ian Pannell’s failure to report on the war crimes he admitted witnessing, smacks of endorsement and complicity – an attempt to preserve the romanticism the West has desperately tried to associate with their FSA death squads. Pannell’s report also confirms earlier descriptions of widespread atrocities committed by the so-called “Free Syrian Army.”

In Libya, when the government of Muammar Qaddafi collapsed, and as Libyan terrorists overran the last of the nation’s security forces, entire cities of Libya’s blacks were overrun, their populations either mass-murdered, imprisoned, or forced to flee to refugee camps. These are people who had lived in Libya for generations. A similar fate awaits Syrians should NATO prevail.

BBC Confirms Syrian Army Use of Heavy Weapons ARE Proportional to FSA Threats

Pannell’s propaganda in Aleppo continues, where he admits FSA militants possess tanks they allegedly “captured” from the Syrian military, but then, showing video of what is either an anti-tank SU-25 aircraft or an Aero L-39 Albatros training jet, rolling in with machine guns, claims it marks a “dramatic escalation” and a sign of “desperation.”

Image: From BBC’s Ian Pannell -FSA tanks are positioned in or around Aleppo, according to BBC. The myth that NATO-backed militants are “lightly armed” is unraveling as they attempt to take on large cities flush with cameras and media from both sides. Eager propagandists attempting to portray victories have more than once shown “captured tanks” in the hands of militants. Heavy militant weapons beget heavy government weapons. 

….

In reality the Syrian army is using force directly proportional to the threats NATO-backed militants have presented. Tanks and heavy weapons mounted on trucks, also featured in the BBC report, are legitimate targets for government heavy weapons. The precision an SU-25 lends the battlefield versus heavy artillery bombardments when neutralizing FSA heavy weapons is the only conceivable way to minimize civilian casualties.

Images: (Top) From BBC’s Ian Pannell – BBC and other Western media outlets have claimed “MIGs” are bombing Aleppo’s civilian populations. This all based on a single “tweet” made by BBC’s Ian Pannell. Pannell now reports this video depicts what he saw – which in reality is either an anti-tank SU-25 or Aero L-39 deploying machine guns, not bombs, versus what Pannell already admits are FSA heavy weapons, not civilian populations. (Bottom) Several orthographic views of the SU-25 and Aero L-39 for comparison. 

….

And as the Western media is so found of reminding its viewers, Aleppo is decidedly pro-government, and pro-President Bashar al-Assad. Therefore to indiscriminately use disproportionate force serves no purpose for the Syrian government, who has gone through extraordinary lengths and placed its soldiers at great risk to minimize damage to the city and its inhabitants – a city and population that serves both an important role economically and culturally for all Syrian people.

Remember Fallujah, Iraq

A government is put in a difficult position when armed gangs enter a city “seeking revenge” as BBC’s Ian Pannell puts it, when these gangs have trucks mounted with heavy weapons as well as tanks in their possession. For the West, to berate the Syrian government and portray its security operations as unmitigated “brutality” is disingenuous at best, especially considering the militants are there solely because of years of financial, military, and political support from the US, Israel, and the Gulf State despots.

File:US Navy 041108-M-8205V-006 An air strike is called in on a suspected insurgent hideout at the edge of Fallujah, Iraq by U.S. Marines assigned K Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, during the openin.jpg

Image: Western hypocrisy – Fallujah, Iraq in 2004 was bombarded by artillery and airstrikes for weeks leading up to the final invasion. When over 10,000 troops entered the city, they were accompanied by tanks, and supported by heavy artillery and airstrikes. When the West is subjugating others, heavy weapons seems acceptable – but not when another nation attempts to defend itself from admittedly Western-backed terrorists. 

….

The West might want to also revisit the lessons it learned from flattening the Iraqi city of Fallujhah, twice. The US bombarded the city for weeks prior to its final invasion in 2004, where over 10,000 troops entered with heavy artillery and air support. Apparently it is acceptable for the West to subjugate others using such tactics, but nations are prohibited from using similar tactics to defend themselves. The Syrian uprising was a foreign-plot stretching back as far as 2007, foreign militants admittedly flowing over the border from across the Arab World, admittedly armed and funded by the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

The Battle of Fullujah is considered a notch in the belt of Western military prowess, while the West condemns Syria’s attempts to defend one of its most important cities from foreign-subversion and destruction. While NATO believes it can still win the geopolitical battle it is waging against the Syrian people, it has already long lost the battle for moral superiority.

It’s a loony conspiracy theory, unless it’s OUR loony conspiracy theory.

Sadly, I’m still unable to get the time to comment on my last two posts. I’ll repost them when I’ve commented. But I HAVE to comment on this.

That horrible Frank ‘Goebels’ Gardner is peddling his trade again.


see: h___ttp://www.b___bc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18015935 (remove the underscores)

Frank in my eyes, is the kind of creature I really don’t like. I have zero confidence that he isn’t part of a British establishment cum ‘intelligence’ [sic] ring placed in the media (like they so often are) just to spread propaganda.

Well here, the BBC allows its “security” correspondent (pfffff!) to trot out his own little conspiracy theory, that the Syrian regime is engaging in false flag operations against itself. The BBC allows this because it fits in nicely with whitey is mighty and white-knightly while darky is naughty and dark-knightly. Where’s your proof Pffffrank?

The weird Lyse Doucet plays the game too, reporting – without challenge:
“The opposition says the attacks were carried out by the government itself to discredit rebel forces.”

Come on Frank, why not talk about 9-11 then you creep.

By the way, do you still keep miniature Qur’ans in your ass pocket?

Please note: It is actually entirely possible that Frank is actually onto something. I have no love for the Syrian tyranny, like many so called “Muslim” governments. Who seem to think torture, oppression and idol worship of the countries leader  is one of the pillars of Islam. Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh. They are after all largely propped up by their pro-Zionist western masters, so what do you expect. However, the bare faced cheek of the BBC to only channel certain conspiracy theories is just vile.

And actually, Frank would know a thing or two about false flags, wouldn’t ya Frankie.

‘Goldman Sachs rules the world’ – Really?

Conspiracy examiners (CE’s) such as myself, will not have failed to have seen Alessio Rastani appearance on the BBC recently.

Unlike some CE’s, I’m not going throw crap at him and make sneering smears against him, or pepper you with ‘warnings’ about him, that you should expect disappointment, from him or watch this space for reports ‘exposing’ him etc., pretty much all of which happened to Tony Farrell.  If you missed it, you can get the low-down on Tony in  this interview. One of Tony’s sins was that he didn’t appear on an approved list of alternative media, and dared opine that the state was involved with 7/7 hence was subject to a very ugly attack.

But prudent questions about the BBC’s role in the celebrated Alessio Rastani interview should be asked.

Where did they get this guy from? I think it’s a reasonable question, especially when Al Jazeera English (AJE) says of him:

“While Alessio Rastani has never worked for a major firm in the City of London – and actually lives in a small house owned by his girlfriend”source

Which BBC researcher sourced him?

Didn’t they pre-interview him to assess his ‘suitability’ for the topic at hand?

Did they have any idea of what he was going to say?

Anyway, the main purpose of my post is to say Rastani isn’t really that correct. It’s not Goldman Sachs (G.S.) that rules the world, it’s the people who rule Goldman Sachs that rule the world. A trivial point you may think, if so, I disagree with you. I actually think it’s very relevant. Why is an inanimate, faceless organisation that in itself rules nothing becoming the target of enmity, while the people cowering behind it’s name-plate get off scot-free? Why not look at the high level people involved with G.S. and ponder their political agenda and how that may work it’s way through G.S. – how that ends up affecting your life? Does it only touch you in a purely financial sense?

We are encouraged to think that the Goldmans of this world are just greedy, and this BBC ‘revelation’, plays along with that ever so nicely. Consequently, we are diverted into thinking ‘no world view imposes itself upon and through the macinations of corporations‘. Corporations are apolitical.

Yeah, utter nonsense.

Thankfully the AJE article touches on Goldman’s public-face owners/CEO’s, but only as much as a toe poke in an icy sea, and yip, you guessed it, AJE mention the big people behind G.S. in context of ‘greed for greeds sake’ only.

None of this is Rastani’s fault, I just think there’s a good chance someone in the BBC cunningly selected for this task. That’s a bit conspiratorial, but even if this BBC ‘researcher’ didn’t do it consciously, the filtration system that resulted in this researchers mind being employed by the BBC automatically sets up views like Rastani (although Rastani is an ‘expeme’ case) whereby the real culptits and their goals do NOT get a mention on the corporate media.

What’s resulted from all this is CE’s are cheering the ‘hit’ of G.S. and I think there being subtly hoodwinked.

 

AJE mind games?

Is Al Jazeera English (AJE) deliberately using the wording “pull” to normalise or numbify peoples minds against this ‘9-11 loaded’ word’? – i.e. the pull word used in the infamous Larry Silverstein interview in which he mentioned watching WTC7’s collapse?

The AJE article in question says “Israel pulls envoy after embassy attack “. Isn’t the usual way to report these things like this: ABC withdraws envoy/ambassador? Isn’t AJE’s title an unusual one? I think what AJE says is grammatically incorrect. The article was written by “Al Jazeera and sources ” – Well, at least the “Last Modified: 10 Sep 2011 07:45” version is.

A friend of mine said Silversteins famous “pull” comment was similarly grammatically incorrect either (in context of getting firemen out of WTC7)

WTC 7 – Pull It By Larry Silverstein

by the way, the alledged comment to firemen was challenged by a “We Are Change” activist:

Larry Silverstein no response to WTC 7 lies

“…the slang in those terms is related the a certain aspect of English, its an adjective. You do not say “pull it ” to bring out people”

If my friend is correct, it is even more pucluar that AJE are also doing it. So I’m even more suspicious of AJE. And dear AJE fans, don’t bother writing in to me to tell me how AJE is good on XYZ and tht reporter PQR is what a journalist should be. I’m NOT talking about individuals here, I’m taking about the whole ethos of AJ and AJE.

Well the mainstream media have done an absolutely pathetic job at bringing up many – or perhaps more accurately: ANY questionalbe points of the events of 9-11.

How far down the inescapable hole have we gone I wonder? Just what are we going to find at the very bottom of it I wonder.

Dear white Europeans

“Dear white Europeans, please come out in mass protests condemning the terrorist attack in Oslo, don’t be silent, the moderates amongst you must reject him. If you don’t, how do we know you don’t all agree?”

Craig Murray also put up a good post entitled “Islamophobia Run Wild” about the BBC (and other Corporate MSM) on this terrorist attack.-

 

Phone Hacking Idiocy

In the UK, the usual idiots are getting into a lather about the latest electronic hijacking (mobile phone) incident which they have been privileged to be informed about. E.g. h_ttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-14027879 and last month: h_ttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14040841

People may remember Henry Porter’s documentary “Suspect Nation”  (Henry is a journalist with the Observer – an offshoot from the tabloid newspaper The Guardian)

Suspect Nation ~ 1/5

Suspect Nation ~ 2/5

Suspect Nation ~ 3/5

Suspect Nation ~ 4/5

Suspect Nation ~ 5/5

But even Henry’s (now old) documentary was lame in the sense that was analogous to locking the stable door after the horse had bolted, that is the horse that bolted long long ago.

Whether designed for this purpose or not, the electronic age is a boon for the disgusting powers that be. With only common sense, I will assert with 100% confidence that…

You really must expect ANY electronic information about you, will be accessed by anyone that decides to take an interest in your life, for whatever reason, and even if you are not specifically under investigation, there will be (and are!) automated electronic programs that will search the electronic world at random for infomation which someone is interested in. If a random ‘scan’ snares some of your data, you are going to flagged and that information will then probably come under more attention, whereby more of your electroic dealings and private life will come under someone spotlight and be logged.

All this talk of encryption and we need more electronic security etc. is all guff. The medium itself is fundamentally ‘leaky’. Encryption simply prevents the small guy (e.g young nerd) from gaining access to the higher organisations, e.g. government and the pervasive shady organisations that collude with it. Oh, that would be those governments which  pontificate about being open the people and all that other BS, you know, the ones what do what they like and don’t have to explain why, because of the ‘national interest’. Like I said, BS!

Microsoft (MS) said the other day it’s cloud based information in Europe cannot be refused if US spy agencies what to look at it. And of course if a US spy agency gets your info, that means Israyhell gets your info. But something that didn’t get as much attention was that MS having a branch in almost every country in the world would have to follow the laws of that particular nation, hence ANY information MS has, would be, if requested to do so, given to in effect ANY government.

And it’s not just MS of course. ALL these megacorps will too.

Basically, if you use electronic media for some kind of action, someone, somewhere does or can know about it. DNA, Iris scans, fingerprint scans. bank transactions inc those over the internet. e-mails, facebook, political views…… You name it. Your life is an open book, and that, from an ordinary person point of view ‘s NOT good at all!

There is only one solution. If you want to maximise your privacy, stop using electronic media.

But NOBODY will.

So why don’t those people ‘shocked’ by all these MSM revelations just shut heck up.

Idiots.

Edmund Hillary – the first white man to climb Mt Everest is reported to have been asked:

“Why did you climb Everest” to which came the reply “Becuause it’s there”.

Ask a spy

“why do you do electronic spying” and they may answer “because I can”

An increasingly mainstream station criticising the mainstream.

An increasingly mainstream station (Russia Today or is it Russia Television, RT) criticising the mainstream, but mildly interesting anyway, and I’m all for more criticism of those who falsely claim to represent us.
