“News Syria” tribute to Maya Nasser, a young patriotic hero who left us for a better place in heaven and left us with a big task to revenge his death and rebuild Syria.

في مقالة نشرت اليوم 29 تموز 2012 في صحيفة الواشنطن بوست الأميركية تحت عنوان البيت الأبيض يحذر المتمردين السوريين بعدم تكرار أخطاء العراق، قام نظام أوباما بالتهديد بقتل الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد بحل أجهزة الدولة من جيش وحكومة وأمن وشرطة.

لذلك رأينا أن نحذر نظام أوباما من مغبة التفكير بهكذا جريمة والتي حتماً ستقود لحرب إقليمية كبرى ودمار هائل في المنطقة، إن لم نقل حرب عالمية ثالثة. وهذه ترجمة ما كتبناه كتعليق على موقع المقالة نفسها على الانترنت، آملين أن يصل هذا التعليق لمن تبقى من العقلاء في الولايات المتحدة، إن بقي أحد منهم في نظام الرئيس الأكثر دموية عسى أن يقوموا بعمل ما يلجم الحرب قبل فوات الآوان:

إذا ذكر بعض مسؤولوا جملة نظام أوباما: “إن قتل الرئيس الأسد” فهذا يعني أنهم يخططون لقتله، وهذا يشير أنهم أكثر حمقاً بكثير، أو على أقله مجانين ومسعورين، أكثر بكثير مما اعتقدنا أو تخيلنا.

ألا يتعلمون من أخطائهم أنفسهم؟ لقد قاموا بقتل 4 قادة في الحكومة السورية: وزير الدفاع، نائبه، العماد معاون نائب رئيس الجمهورية، ورئيس الأمن القومي السوري، والنتيجة؟ قام الجيش العربي السوري بعملية واسعة ضد مجاميع الإرهابيين بدون أي رحمة ثأراً لقادته، بينما كان هؤلاء القادة الذين تم اغتيالهم هم من كانوا يخففون من حركة الجيش العربي السوري ما كان يتيح للإرهابيين الفرصة تلو الأخرى لرمي السلاح والانخراط في حوار سياسي. أثق أن هذه المعلومات جديدة عليكم، أي قراء الواشنطن بوست، لأن وسائل إعلامكم كانت تعطيكم صورة مغايرة عن طريق خلق بيئة افتراضية بعيدة عن الواقع وقاموا بنقل متابعيهم لهذه البيئة الافتراضية للعيش فيها.

أفراد الجيش العربي السوري ليسوا مجموعة بيادق أو عبيد يتبعون أية أوامر مهما كانت، أولئك الذين لا يعرفون بعد يجب أن يعلموا أن 16 شهراً من حملات التضليل الإعلامي الغير مسبوقة بشكل منتظم من كافة وسائل إعلام الناتو، بما فيها الواشنطن بوست نفسها، هذه الحملات لم تفلح في إزاحة هذا الجيش قيد أنملة من القيام بمهامه الوطنية. والآن في حال قيام نظام أوباما بخطوة حمقاء كقتل قائد هذا الجيش فإن مدناً اسطنبول، أنقرة، الدوحة، مدريد، باريس، روما، أثينا وغيرها الكثير ستحال إلى ركام. وبإمكانكم سؤال من ما زال يتمتع بعقله في نظام أوباما عن مدى الصواريخ السرية، ولم أذكر “اسرائيل” طبعاً لأن الأرض التي تحتلها ستتحول لأرض غير قابلة للحياة. الجيش العربي السوري لديه أوامره الجاهزة للرد، والقادة الميدانيين يستطيعون الرد على أي عدوان دون الرجوع للقيادة. الجيش العربي السوري في حالة حرب ضد آلاف الإرهابيين في داخل البلاد، لذا لن يضطروا لانتظار الأوامر، ثقوا بكلامي.

إذا كان نظام أوباما يسعى للملحمة الكبرى هرمجدون، نهاية العالم، فليقولوا ذلك. لقد ألمح المتحدث باسم وزارة الخارجية السورية بالفعل إلى خيار شمشون: علينا وعلى أعدائنا في حالة التعرض لاعتداء خارجي، وقتل رئيس البلاد هو اعتداء خارجي. اقرأوا بين السطور.

لا يهم وقتها إن تبجح أوباما نفسه بقتله الرئيس الأسد، أو كان المتبجح الظواهري، رئيس الوكالة الفيدرالية الأميركية للإرهاب المسماة بالقاعدة. إن أعداء سورية قد أعلنوا عن أنفسهم بالفعل: كل من شارك بما يسمى بمؤتمر “أصدقاء سورية”.

اطلبوا من زعمائكم التعقل، العالم مازال صغيراً ليشهد دماره، هناك العديد من أسلحة الدمار الشامل موجودة في “اسرائيل” والتي ستقوم باستخدامهم بالفعل للرد، ولكنها أيضاً ستكون من ضمن خيار شمشون بالنسبة لها.

Washington Post, one of the US leading newspapers enriches its audience with very strong material, very strong that the readers would be in a state of mind after reading its articles to jump off cliffs.. Wait, I’m not exaggerating, just read the article appearing today under title: In Damascus, losing faith in Assad, then come back here to read this short comment, this might help you avoid jumping off the cliff:

I always love to read WP articles about Syria, it’s very informative and with evidence: A guy on the street said the people hate the regime, he didn’t give his name, while another guy who is 62 years to be precise, not in his 60s, most probably he’s an Aries as well, he owns 4 houses in Damascus but can’t stay in any, he’s staying now in?!?! Anyways, while a 30 year old man doesn’t feel loyal anymore, even thought he used to serve the government in shocking protesters with electric prods which none of the entire mainstream media showed any of the Syrian govt servants do in any of the protests, because the protesters were shelled at with tanks, remember? I think you forgot reports like ‘peaceful protesters’ in Daraa in the south of Syria were shelled by Syrian army tanks indiscriminately causing 4 protesters to be slightly wounded in Idleb, north of Syria.. and such stuff.

I remember one report posted here by a lady called Liz Sly, that’s her real name for some reason, and she writes here often, she went to Hama to locate 900,000 protesters who took to the streets a week earlier and she wrote: “the city is beautiful, lots of trees on the sides of the roads, everything is calm but you can feel the revolt in hidden feelings, a lady, she refused to give her name out of fear of consequences, said the people here are all against the regime, while Mohammad, a street vendor said he will revolt against the regime if he gets the chance.. otherwise, the city looks quiet and clean”, and no, she didn’t find the 900,000 protesters or any of them, they were protesting with their feelings, maybe.

This report however is written by a ‘Special Correspondent’ if you noticed.

If it was a ‘public uprising’ then it was put down by another overwhelming ‘public’, or by a brutal army of 500,000 personnel coming from 23 million people, not to add Baath party members of 2.8 million plus those in the parliament, government, security, police and of course their families…, or the ‘public uprising’ wasn’t public after all, you choose.

Hasn’t Washington Post itself report of influx of thousands of AlQaeda fighters into Syria with the help of Turkey, Jordan and parties in Lebanon all stooges to the USA? Or such reports don’t count, it’s a 62 year old man the ‘Special Correspondent’ met on the street, and a 30 year old former protesters shocker stories stand?

They fool you, they keep fooling you and they enjoy fooling you, not because they’re smart, it’s because you’re ‘foolable’.

 

 

 

Today, a serious attack against a TV station in Syria took place. The Arab League (AL) kills the freedom of information; its armed wing kills the people of Syria.

The attacks by the terrorists of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and al-Qaeda against the Syria`s media is the command execution of the decision by the Arab League to silence Syria.

The Arab League (ALI) had decided to stop the broadcasting of the Syrian channels on Arabsat and Nilesat – the murderer wants to silence his victims.

The Arab Blogger from the Blog “Democratic Syria” has given us this description about the recent defector story in Western media and shared his analysis of this recent event.

Here is his analysis on the defection of the Syrian pilot.

While it is another headline in Western media, the Blogger has given some good points in his analysis about this defected pilot.

Here’s the text of this Syrian blogger:

Yesterday the German mainstream newspaper “taz” published an article entitled “Escalation of Violence in Syria: Now the Kurds should also join the war“, written by Jasna Zajček.

Of course, this reminds some on the new head of the Islamist “Syrian National Council” (SNC), based in Istanbul, and why this head was finally “elected” to represent the questionable interests of this dubious council.

Jasna Zajček was awarded with the CNN Journalist Award in 2005 and it is almost no question that hardly anybody fevers so violently with the “Syrian rebels” than this so-called journalist with experiences at the front (picture see source).

Feeling Boiling with Syria’s First Lady’s Louboutin Shoes?

Media aligned with NATO worked hard over the past 15 months plus to come up with any piece of information that would harm the Syrian state by any way, whether that is at the political, community, security, military, officials personal level or any level they can tangle the feelings of the Sheeple and direct them in the propaganda war they waged against this country, not for anything else except this small Middle Eastern state dared tell the United States of America NO in its face. Not only saying NO to the super power when it was in its heights of ego, but dared working hard to fail any US hegemony plans in the region, if not affecting the worldwide New World Order altogether.

Can you imagine that in part of the ongoing planning and plotting to make happen the criminal thought of a one government world that would rule the entire human race under the guise of using slogans that totally are opposite to this daemonic goal, slogans like: Spreading Democracy, Promoting Free Speech and Securing Human Rights; can you imagine that the Syrian first lady’s ‘shoes’ were part of their master plan?!

Don’t be surprised, we as Syrians have witnessed all kinds of low propaganda from targeting all our national symbols from our flag in an attempt to replace it with another one, to targeting the Syrian map by showing maps with divided ethnic based tiny states, targeting the Syrian army by having terrorists posing in its uniform  and committing crimes to frame it in unverifiable youtube video clips, all other low propaganda that targeted the head of the Syrian state with all his family members, not ending with his wife of course, even her shoes.

An article dated Monday 19 March 2012, the Guardian appeared with an interesting, disconnected, totally out of touch article titled: Is Christian Louboutin toast now that we know his overpriced shoes are the favourite footwear of Asma al-Assad?

Based on the funny story of fake Syrian president’s personal emails leaked and out of discoveries of western intelligence agencies combined their efforts to discover the shopping habits of the Syrian first lady from again her personal emails. We won’t discuss the email story itself because having it hosted at a small commercial hosting company in Dubai while the Syrian presidential palace has its own servers and the Syrian Information Society, a public corporation owned by the Syrian government and headed once by the Syrian president himself, can offer much more secure and realistic option to host the Syrian first family’s personal emails.. But what we will discuss is the craze of the yellow western media to serve the only goal: demonize the Syrian state’s head in order to fail the state to further destroy it, install puppet regimes in place to serve the ultimate goal: New World Order.

In the Guardian article mentioned above there’s a cheap way in demonizing the Syrian first family by trying to imply to the readers that an owner of a VIP brand worldwide would have ‘his career ended’ just because one of its pair of shoes was bought by the Syrian first lady! Just in case Asma Al Assad did buy that pair of shoes from this brand.

Go through the article and sense the ugly language of one of the UK’s dirtiest newspapers known for its pro-NATO wars.

Now keep in mind that the UK is not having its very best economical times, and the Queen is supporting an austerity measures.

If however you did get appalled by the ‘crime’ the Syrian first lady committed in buying a pair of shoes, again if this story had any bases, maybe you should read the following article, where it’s not a problem that the UK’s crown prince’s son’s wife that she buys from an expensive brand a dress from Alexander McQueen worth £1,195, it’s the problem that Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has wore a dress that was wore before by another celebrity, Kim Kardashian in New York last year.

Are you boiling?

They fool you, they keep fooling you and they enjoy fooling you, not because they’re smart, it’s because you’re ‘Foolable’

I’m sorry if I missed some in the above banner, there are so many of them and don’t have time nor space for all of them, but the above are the leading worst of the rest.

“If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed” Mark Twain.

Shock and Awe, your enemy won’t have time to grasp their breaths, so does your citizens, keep moving them from a conflict to another and they will keep supporting you. The Shock and Awe doesn’t only apply on your enemies as you see, it applies on your people, your allies, foes, and no thanks to the mainstream media propaganda which keeps you on your feet awaiting to hear achievements and victories without questioning the credibility or source of information you are fed 24/7 non-stop.

Let’s guess who controls the mainstream media? Well, let’s not guess, it’s all over the net now. I invite you NOT to read this article (Controlling Most US Media), it’s a bit outdated but nevertheless the info it contains has barely changed.

Do you believe in Conspiracy Theory? Of course you don’t, you are not stupid, this is only for the silly, naive and shallow people, you are much more sophisticated than such stuff and you don’t want to look dumb among your friends, nobody believes the Conspiracy Theory because the world is only led by the good people and nobody ever plans anything, especially in Free Media (you won’t click the link under Free Media because you don’t believe in the silly Conspiracy Theory thing). But maybe you should spend 20 minutes reading what’s in this article and comparing to your surroundings: The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

Now back to our story, when the Shock and Awe fails and the conflict takes more time, people will start thinking, they’re not supposed to, but what to do, it’s a human nature, and you have to deal with it, in this case the only solution lies with Mainstream Media, you control it, or those who control it are your allies, ask them to intensify their propaganda, each news bulletin should have at least a line or two in its headlines about your cause, analysts should be available to discuss your point of view, you can accept some criticism but make sure those criticizing you don’t have the last words, bring someone to ridicule their replies and carry on, reports should be available, and if you don’t have news: create some for God sake.. Your plans will fail if the public starts asking questions.

With the introduction of social media and then citizen journalists who needs to verify credibility, so many blogs I personally wrote about the use of these tools to carry out the media campaign to justify the cause of demonizing your enemy then justifying their killings. The audience when they keep flipping from one news outlet to another to find the same news of such: “dictator killing own people’ and ‘public uprisings brutally oppressed by tyrants’ they’ll have no other choice but to buy such stuff, nobody would care to search for the other side of the story, so many sides your friends in mainstream media are providing, and if you don’t believe it there’re plenty of Youtube videos to prove it, and it just happens that all these videos (over 64,000 in the case of Syria) are so much filling the pattern: shaky videos from mobile phones, breathless citizens running across the streets, so much blood everywhere, sounds of explosions, and if that’s not available make it!

Some examples in the Libyan case were the so many times Saif ulislam Gaddafi was arrested before he was actually arrested, and his brother Khamis was so many times killed before he was actually killed, or maybe not..! The anti-Gaddafi protests and rebels reaching Bab Alaziziya in Benghazi and Doha in Qatar that looks similar to the real one in Tripoli, Libya.. and so on. Al Jazeera’s Fake Green Square. (for example)

Fake Green Squares Shown on Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera tried to do the same in Syria by building miniatures similar to known sites in different cities of the country and fake demonstrations near it, their infamous try was with the miniature of the Clock Tower in Homs which some real activists blew the attempt when comparing the real Clock Tower with the fake ones that kept appearing on this NATO mouthpiece.

And here is where the Shock and Awe failed. The prolonged conflict in Syria gave time to many to revise and compare news aired on mainstream media with the actual ones, and the same Al Jazeera in coordination with its sister channel Al Arabiya exposed themselves when they were given information that the Zero hour in Syria is imminent and simultaneously both channels started broadcasting on an early Friday news of tens of thousands of anti-Assad protesters fill two mains squares in Damascus city, the Abbasid and Ommayad squares, thinking by this they’re giving the signal to NATO stooges to flood these two squares and at the same time to push those curious to go there to see for themselves then there will be ready planted ‘activists’ who will be filming any crowd, airing the same via satellite connections on those two pathetic channels who in turn will magnify the picture same like what they did with the initial Tahrir square (the article was manipulated later by Al Arabiya & the link image mentioned in it that shows stitching of several images to give impression of huge crowds, the image was removed for unknown reason), they failed because those plotting are not Syrians and not aware of so much of reality not starting with the laziness of Syrians on a Friday morning that nothing would move them other than bringing Foul or Fattah ingredients, no politics, no NATO and nothing else would cause a Syrian to gather anywhere on a Friday morning, then the main punch to their plot was the fact that the Syrian state tv’s head quarters is in the centre of Ommayad Square itself, overseeing all 7 main roads branching from the square from a single angle, and that on Friday morning there’s a live tv programme, and the fact that all Syrians know this pushed them to switch from Al Jazeera & Arabiya channels immediately to Syrian tv to see from the studio how that lie was exposed, furthermore, the presenters were notified of the fake news aired on those two pathetic channels, and the presenters would look over their shoulders onto the square to see how normal lazy Friday morning cars are moving that time, and the TV crews were immediately dispatched to the streets of both squares to interview people who ridiculed that step, a final punch to the two stations credibility.

What's left of the original image on the net, the original one was hundreds of times bigger than this

Another pathetic attempt was by the French France24 channel that cut a live cross talk show to announce the resignation of the Syrian Ambassador to France Ms. Lamia Shakkour because of the ‘brutal oppression by president Assad’s regime’ as they put it, then to receive a fake phone from someone claiming to be Ms. Shakkour, just like a drama show, and at the end had to deny the story after receiving a harsh criticism by Ms. Shakkour in a press conference and the ambassador’s threats to file a legal case against the channel. This pathetic attempt was meant to embarrass the ambassador and encourage, as they thought, other ambassadors to resign worldwide, such attempt didn’t live more than 20 minutes (Al Jazeera channel insists on the resignation while the ambassador was on phone with Syrian state tv denouncing such news as cheap). And just for the record, this attempt was on June 8, 2011 and  till date there’s not a single resignation of any Syrian ambassador worldwide, nor any diplomat to the level of 3rd secretary in a consulate!

Shocking propaganda isn’t limited to cheap channels receiving such crap, digesting it and feeding the digested crap to their Sheeple audience, when there’s no crap to broadcast they create it! It’s difficult to believe because who would risk credibility for propaganda? Not when the prize is destroying Syria and not if they thought they can get away with it, and intelligence agencies informed them that the Syrian ‘regime’ would fall in few days so they went for the plot to the extent that a prominent US news channel actually plotted destroying oil pipelines in Homs in direct coordinating with terrorists to accuse the Syrian army of shelling them to punish the people. This channel, CNN, was defaced by the Syrian state tv and I discussed in an earlier post (CNN Knew About September 11 Attacks 16 Hours Earlier).

A reporter for Al Jazeera using high-tech satellite devices spies on the Libyan Army communication in this report and brags about it, remember that Colonel Gaddafi was demonized a long while ago and therefore it’s fine to spy on his forces by a ‘Journalist’ who shares the information with ‘freedom fighters’, then don’t wonder why such reporters become targets in retaliations by regular forces tracing the spying devices:

 

The role such mainstream media plays is vital for NATO, they’re spies, they can reach places without suspicion, can smuggle communication devices to insurgents duped ‘freedom fighters’ and contributes to the military aggression. Their role is not only to demonize foes, but moved into an uglier phase of actually contributing to the military actions and sabotage.

You can understand the decision of Syrian government to expel foreign reporters from Syria at the beginning of riots in the country last year and then allowing selective reporters to enter, even those who entered based on pressure on the Syrian government by the UN and non-governmental organizations (other NATO tools), those reporters manipulated reports, interviews, and even when sending unbiased reports to their stations, the stations do not broadcast their reports, the same thing that happened with Al Arabiya reporter Hanna Houshan several times and was scolded by Syrian Foreign Minister Mr. Moallem on several occasions for the same.

Yet, the most alarming interview distorted by a foreign prominent news channel was the one ABC News reporter Barbara Walters did with president Assad himself and doctored, edited, distorted the whole interview before was forced to air the original full unedited interview after the Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesperson showed them that they have a copy of the same interview in full..! (Check it here).

The BBC had its share in Syria’s crisis and again put its credibility at risk just for the sake of promoting propaganda on Syria, despite willingly and fully knowing the level of deception it’s involved in, but still takes accounts of terrorists and their lies at its shows with no shame and no responsibility and no respect to its own image and the sacrifices of many of its own reporters in shaping that image. In an earlier post I explained how the BBC Promoted a Terrorists to a Victim.

The Guardian has proved to be a mouthpiece for the criminals, you can see interviews with convicted criminals on it criminalizing others, who usually are the subject of the demonizing policy, and if you as a reader try to point out the fact that the interviewed is a convicted criminal they delete your comment, ban you from further comments and sends you a nasty email reminding you with their Community Standards! This happened with me personally when I commented once on an interview with Ali Sadr Al Din Bayanoni, a convicted terrorist and head of an outlaw terrorists organization (as per the records of his native country), who named the sitting Syrian president Bashar Al Assad with all bad names he could dig from his vocabulary he learned from his gangs including calling the Syrian president a criminal and a thug and other bad words, they deleted my comment and reminded me that it’s against their community standards to call a writer of their articles a criminal!!

Reuters reporter on Syria, a Jordanian citizen Mr. Oweis was arrested by Syrian authorities at the beginning of the riots in Syria for faking a report on the events and putting words in an injured soldier’s mouth to show him as saying that he was shot by fellow officers for refusing to shoot at peaceful protesters when the injured soldier was shouting with the loudest faint voice he could that the shots he received were from the protesters side he’s facing and not from his back. The reporter’s bad luck was when a Syrian tv reporter was next close to him and recorded the incident on his own camera, and when all news houses taking reports from Reuters aired the doctored interview where the soldier’s voice can’t be heard clearly and only the reporter’s voice is heard putting words in the soldier’s mouth, the Syrian TV aired the film recorded by its own staff showing the Reuters reporter and the real dialogue that happened! ABC News of Australia learned a lesson after airing a Reuters report on Syria and here is what they had to say:

There’s nothing called Free Media, whoever pays for the media house either by shareholders contribution or by advertisements controls to a very large extent the strategy of these media houses. Do you think social media is more credible as unbiased free speech supporters providing you with a platform to voice your opinion? Think again. At least with the Syrian issue where we see and been seeing Facebook deleting continuously a page dedicated for a real Free Speech supporting Syrian youth group calling themselves The Syrian Electronic Army over 150 times by now and as soon as the page appears back again, accusing them of showing disturbing images, while they keep another page called ‘The Syrian Revolution Against Bashar Al Assad’ which shows bodies slashed into pieces, beating by terrorists in army uniforms to accuse the Syrian army, and so on, this is not of course, in their scale, against their community standards. They once deleted a picture I posted of a US Army soldier bragging on top of a dead boy’s body in Afghanistan claiming it ‘violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities’, again while they keep supporting the same page that is working to demonize the Syrian president:

The Weapons of Mass Deception have much more damaging effects than those of Mass Destruction, they destroy the brain in addition to animalizing the human or in better words: producing the Sheeple audience.

We Warned You

Just a small post to give you a hint on how media consumes, digests and passes the crap to the audience in just 2 words.

Today, I was looking for news on Syria and suddenly I kept seeing the same words repeated in so many places: “Syria scuttles” and when I searched for these exact 2 words, this is what I found:

Yes, that’s typical for Google search engine, but shouldn’t be typical for journalism, it’s not NEWS, it’s an interpretation of a news, the news should go as: “Syria demands written ‘guarantee’ from armed groups” and if you go by the official Syrian government narrative it goes: “Syria Agreed to Annan’s Plan as it Respects its Sovereignty” then adds “Syrian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mr. Makdessi added that Annan’s speeches at the UN Security Council were interpreted that Syria has pledged to withdraw troops from cities on April 10th, affirming that it is a wrong interpretation, especially that Annan has not offered written guarantees to the Syrian government that the armed groups agreed to stop violence, nor has he offered guarantees that Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey will commit to stop funding and arming terrorist groups.” (Check the source here)

And here is how some news agencies have reported it:

33,400 results for "Syria Demands" in the past 24 hours

That’s only to show there’s negativity on behalf of the Syrian government and not to show that the ‘rebels ACTUALLY rejected to give guarantees’ because they’re NATO’s angels on the ground, and that they would stay outlawed and they’ll continue to fight government’s police, security and army posts & personnel, take a look on how many search results returned for ‘Rebels Rejected':

143 results for "Syrian rebels reject" - note the titles of the articles

You shouldn’t know that the rebels rejected, and in case someone had to highlight this news they’ll not give it to you as it is, they have to play with the title to give you an impression that ‘rebels’ had to ‘reject’ to keep undermining the Syrian state’s legitimacy.

Don’t laugh while you take a look at the below image showing the positive news that Syrian government ACTUALLY agreed to Annan’s plan and requested written guarantees, then concentrate on Huffington Post’s title how it doesn’t mention Syrian government agreement and includes it in the body of the article only:

51 results in the past 24 hours for Syria Agreed (check the last one though: "Has Syria agreed..?"!!

Did you get it?

“They fool you, they keep fooling you and they enjoy fooling you, not because they’re smart, but because you’re ‘Foolable'”

We Warned YOU 

If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
Mark Twain

3 different verifiable trusted sources, if you don’t have them don’t air the story; if you have to air the story with less than 3 different verifiable trusted sources just make sure you mention it in the disclaimer at the beginning and at the end. Sounds familiar? That was the old days of professional journalism, not any more.

A shaky mobile video with low camera resolution, some sound effects, and lots of movements, by a ‘somebody’, could be a ‘citizen journalist’, an ‘eye witness’, an ‘activist’, just ‘anybody’ as far as it serves the purpose; this is the replacement of journalism today.

Reliable and well established news houses would refer to the first option above to preserve their professionalism and their credibility, but the price sometimes is much more worth than credibility, if you don’t add drama and action to your stories, people would shift to where they can find it, people want to see blood, atrocities, crimes, the highest watched are the most violence, some very few would still want to hear good news.

To add some spices to your news, bring on ‘analysts’ to discuss from their point of experience what’s really happening to the audience who are too lazy to work their brains to analyse themselves and would prefer a fast meal of junk news, then ask to recruit some people of public desire like celebrities, clerics even fortune tellers so your story gets more attention and more talks, who cares whether it’s true or not? People want action and fiction so just give them what they want.

First, I’ll advise you to take a look at how journalism is supposed to be based on by reading the Society of Professional Journalists: Code of Ethics. Then when you are ready, come back here and check the following example.

The following is just one example out of tens of thousands that are polluting our environment with propaganda in a systematic way just to serve the same parties, those who ignite strife amongst ‘rogue nations’ citizens, then cry because of the bloodshed, then interfere to stop the bloodshed by shedding much more blood than would ever occur by its own, then crying again to get the rebuilding contracts.

He tweets: “#Syria Statistics 383 Days: Killed:12,460 Children:882 Females:773 Soldiers:1,089 Missing:+65,000 Tortured to death:491 Arrested:+212,000″ and he’s literally nobody, but has 4,826 followers as of now, and this ‘tweet’ gets 50+ retweets (Twitter doesn’t count beyond 50 retweets, this figure could be hundreds) then this is followed by another tweet: “The source of the Syrian casualty/ arrest stat is an independent Swedish journalist SyrienNyheter

Then someone smarter would ask: “and what are his sources? i mean, is that independent journo in Sweden or Syria?”

Reply: “He’s done the count himself. He’s been covering it since beginning.”

And who is this super journalist that can count by himself: “12,460 killed out of which he was able to identify 882 children and 773 females (I assume adult females), 1,089 Soldiers (killed by who?), he also counted over +65,000 missing, 491 tortured to death and over 212,000 arrested”? Let’s assume he did all this counting in 383 days, where is he doing the counting and who is this super independent Swedish journalist?

He’s anonymous, and if an independent Swedish journalist why is he being an anonymous? and why would an ‘independent Swedish journalist’ use the NATO backed oppositions flag in his avatar?! and if this is not credible enough, from where is he sourcing his information and statistics?  Don’t guess much, he stated it on his own profile, it’s from Bassam Al Baghdadi, an Iraqi writer living in Stockholm, Sweden and counting the Syrian casualties!

If you find the above not stupid enough to base your news thus judgement on, take a look at the following image:

It's a Top Tweet by a guy sitting in Kabul, Afghanistan!

A nobody sitting in his tent in Kabul, Afghanistan with let me assume, some NATO technology to stay connected from there, reporting news about Syria, basing his reports on an ‘independent Swedish journalist’ who happens to be another nobody sitting in Stockholm, Sweden who did the counting of casualties himself by sourcing his information from an Iraqi writer living in Stockholm, Sweden! There you have your 3 credible sources. Go ahead and shoot it at the public.

Wait, before you leave, you need to make it public attracting, and you need a celebrity. There’s plenty of them, here’s one:

I’m sure Mia Farrow is not involved out of her sudden love to the Syrian people, otherwise she would have done something to stop the unilateral sanctions imposed on the Syrian people by the same powers crying for the Syrian people.

There is killing in Syria, there is a crisis there, but the questions everybody should ask are: Who is doing the killing? Who are the victims? How can over 3,000 soldiers be killed and by who? Surely not by some chants of ‘peaceful protesters’. Who did the many suicide bombings Al Qaeda style in Aleppo and Damascus? Who benefits from the killings in Syria? Should we accept that NATO destroys Syria like they did in Libya, devastate the country, kill tens of thousands of Syrians like they killed over 120,000 Libyans (Libya’s population is 9.6 million or was living on over 1.75 million square kilometres comparing with 24 million Syrians living on 185,000 sq. kms) to come one year later and say: “No Evidence That Gaddafi Fired On His Own People

Or like the Iraqi case still looking for those Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction that caused the deaths of over a 1 million Iraqi, displacement of 4 million internally and across the borders, and sending the country to pre-Stone age.

As I say always: They fool you, they keep fooling you and they enjoy fooling you, not because they’re smart, it’s just because you are ‘Foolable’.

We Warned You
