So, if 99.99% of war crimes are committed by one side, and .o1% are committed by the other side, the Amnesty International conclusion is “fair and balanced” enough to say “Both sides”???
Just one more institution succumbing to despicable Orwellian newspeak, yet still expects to be regarded with credibility.
“HAVE YOU NO SHAME?” Same goes for OSCE, Obama, Biden, Kerry, McCain, Nuland, US Congress.
ISIL atrocities CLEARLY demonstrate that such provocation of Western delicate sensibilities to the horrors of war (only when the victim looks like THEM) results in a predictable, continuous escalation of media hysteria to keep the US war machine engaged in both Syria and Iraq.
So why would “ISIS” continue such counter-productive provocations, especially adding OSCAR-worthy high production values for “Technical Achievement in a Propaganda Snuff Video”?
Are wars won by repeating counter-productive stupidity? Is that how the Moors conquered Spain? So why continue behavior that provokes ever-increasing retaliation?
Obama was definitely planning to leave Iraq, and insistent NOT to start a war with Syria, and NOT have more boots on the ground. Suddenly, within days of actual troop withdrawals, there are chemical weapons used in Syria, (blamed on Assad, but later proven to be US-supported rebels) and war against Assad is averted ONLY by intervention by Vladimir Putin to dispose of the weapons and eliminate the WMD threat. Less than three weeks after their complete disposal, the
ISIS, IS, ISIL(?) phenomenon is announced… with ample brutality and beheadings, and more beheadings, and now, burning alive caged prisoners of war.
OF COURSE THIS ISN’T a war against Assad (wink)…. just his country, and infrastructure, and multi-ethnic culture: Christians, to Yazidis, to Shias. Against everyone. But strangely, not against the “hated Jews”.
ISIS—the perpetual false flag– appearing wherever it’s needed for US to intervene militarily, or persuade the population that “No one is safe. No one. Not even in the Homeland.” Maybe soon to appear in a political theater near you.
Jenn Psaki promoted to White House Communications Director where her definitive BRAND of sociopathy can be applied to the entire administration, not just the State Department. Compulsive lying, misdirection, & clinical projection, combined with a smarmy, smug personality, gets a promotion every time in OZama World. AND the gene will be proliferated.
What a DISGRACE that this is the image that America presents to the world.
Captain Jerk: “Bonehead, what’s that on the screen?”
Bonehead: The Romu-Russians have invaded the Ukrania Galaxy! We have evidence!
Captain Jerk: But why can’t we see them, Spook?
Spook: They have a cloaking device, which makes them invisible.
#2 of 21: Captain, I have the enemy leader onscreen with a visual message.
Captain Jerk: What does it mean?
Spook: Do you remember what the Reptilian Ambassador Nuland said about the Europe Confederation?
#2 of 21: Resistance appears futile, Captain.
Spook: I know…. Let’s build a big fence to shield our airspace!
Captain Jerk: Our shields are crumbling. Can we get any more credit to buy fuel?
Bonehead: We already owe Star Fleet for last year’s fuel.
Captain Jerk: I may have to abandon ship. Can you stay here and fight, Spook?
Spook: Highly unlikely, Captain. Quite illogical. I have a golden parachute.
#2 of 21: I can’t be captured again. I’ll change my name to Princess Leia, and go to another Galaxy far far away.
Bonehead: OK, I will stay and fight forever.
Капитан Гирк: “Бонхед, что это такое на экране?”
Бонхед: В Pomy-русские вторглись в украинскую галактику. У нас есть доказательства!
Капитан Гирк: Но почему мы не можем их видеть, Споок?
Споок: Они имеют Мантия-невидимка, который делает их невидимыми.
#2 из 21: Капитан, у меня есть вражеского лидера на экране с визуальным сообщением.
Капитан Гирк: Что это значит?
Споок: Ты помнишь, что сказал рептилий посол Нуланд о Европе Конфедерации?
#2 из 21: появляется сопротивление бесполезно, капитан.
Споок: Я знаю…. Давайте строить большой забор, чтобы оградить нашего воздушного пространства!
Капитан Гирк: Наши щиты рушится. Можем ли мы получить больше кредитов для покупки топлива?
Бонхед: Мы уже должны звездный флот на топливо в прошлом году.
Капитан Гирк: Я, возможно, придется покинуть корабль. Можете ли вы остаться здесь и бороться Споок?
Споок: крайне маловероятно, капитан. Довольно нелогично. У меня есть золотой парашют.
#2 из 21: Я не могу быть захвачены снова. Я изменю свое имя, чтобы принцессы Леи, и перейти к другой далекой-далекой галактике.
Бонхед: Хорошо, я останусь и бороться навсегда.

This arrogant, smug, self-important TOADY misrepresented that the helicopter HE rode in was hit while he was in it. But MEANWHILE, OVER HIS ENTIRE CAREER, misrepresenting, Gaza, the Iraq invasion, the lies, Syrian Chemical attack, NOT calling Kiev junta an overthrow of a democratically elected President, Hugo Chavez, genocide in Donbass… THAT‘S OK?????
His punishment is PART OF THE DECEPTION, that “the rest of media is honest by contrast”.
IT ISN’T !!
MEDIA IS COMPLICIT IN THE GOVERNMENT LIES. Self-flagellation, decrying this incident, while abdicating their responsibility to the people. Williams is a TRAITOR to America, not for his “mis-remembering” , but for his ongoing duplicity. SO is all of US MSM.
This story is in ITSELF, another amoral, despicable false flag.
EVERYTHING we are told is exactly like this. It is not truth. It is designed to manipulate opinion. Political advertising under the guise of “journalism”.
There IS NO JOURNALISM.
There is ONLY LIES & PROPAGANDA.
YES, Toto… EVERYTHING.
MI6 says entire world is threatened by this latest Russian ‘provocation’. A periscope, reported by knowledgeable American tourists as “definitely” that of a Russian submarine, was spotted outside Parliament, and under the Vauxhall Bridge, outside MI6 Headquarters. NATO immediately proposed a massive sale of battleships to Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Moldova, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein. “All the rivers of Europe are now vulnerable to the Russian war machine” says NATO SACEUR, General Philip Breedlove.
Vice President Joe Biden, immediately cancelled his visit to Ukraine, where he was scheduled to dedicate a cocaine addiction clinic, named after his son, Hunter. Victoria Nuland, one of the tourists on Vauxhall Bridge, said she was “just sitting on the bridge, sharing some cookies with passersby”, when she noticed the curved-necked shaped object, “moving deliberately and aggressively in the water. At first I thought it may be the Loch Ness Monster,” she enthused. “But then I asked a man with a kilt if the Thames flowed into Loch Ness. When he panicked and shouted, “I cannae believe it, ya fat cow.” I knew then, it could only be a Russian Sub invading the UK.”
“I immediately called President Obama, and related the sighting, but he kept asking if St Andrew’s was a good place to make a speech from. He became very excited about talking with David Cameron about making all new NATO submarines shaped like Nessie, so they would be undetectable and stealthy. He described a new strategic initiative based on dinosaur-themed military bases to avoid both detection, and criticism of American military expansion.”
John McCain called for an immediate retrofit of all submarines with the Nessie stealth shape, and for immediate delivery to the Middle East and Central Asia, “where the historical lack of water, makes such sea monsters a rare occurrence, as in my home state of Arizona. A dinosaur Theme Park adjacent to each base, would provide additional cover for any Rapid Response forces, and admissions receipts from the tourist side could pay for additional munitions, while offsetting some of the IMF interest on their defense debt.”
When asked for comment, UK PM David Cameron, said he felt morally obligated to consult with the Monarchy before discussing any dinosaur-related strategic defense issues.
Meanwhile, in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said NATO’s latest accusation was ridiculous, but it had “buoyed” his spirits.

The attacks are against “pro-Russian Ukrainians”, not military targets, nor even the specific government buildings taken over by the locals. Apparently occupying government buildings is now a capital crime in Ukraine (except in Kiev’s Maidan). The Western propaganda is hysterically and universally and immediately Anti-PUTIN, not anti-Strelkov.
The agenda seems to be to PROVOKE a Soviet-style reaction by Russia, which can be SOLD by PROPAGANDA as “another Russian invasion of a US ally.” Despite this explanation, Crimea was re-affiliated with mother Russia by overwhelming popular support, with absolute minimum casualties, in contrast to Kiev’s attempts to re-affiliate Donbass. If Russia can be maneuvered to be perceived as brutally invading Ukraine “against international law”, NATO would be “required” to respond with direct attacks on Russia from East European forward NATO bases, which were installed with full preparatory logistics (“purely defensively” of course). Now these bases are being quietly (i.e.: ignored by MSM) readied with increased aircraft, and “symbolic” transfers of elite military units, from the Baltic to the Balkans.
Now, the Ukrainian army has been surreptitiously shelling RUSSIAN territory near Rostov, while Western media is claiming that Russia is building up forces on the border and shelling Ukraine FROM Russia.
The GOAL is apparently ALL OUT WAR with Russia and forcible retaking of Crimea. Undoubtedly with the objective of disabling Russia’s Black Sea fleet, giving NATO total DIRECT control of the Black Sea access route to Caspian Oil & Gas reserves, with or without Russian Pipelines.
US doesn’t want a cease fire, nor will it be satisfied with a Ukraine Confederation including Donbass. It is committed to military confrontation. US wants the GAS. It wants an excuse for inflating the petrodollar, and it needs cover to avoid the US economy from tanking, especially before the November US elections. It just needs to catch the public up with the decision already made.
If this is the strategy, it is becoming desperate, especially with the breakup of the junta government. The Right Wing Svoboda has bolted. UDAR has no influence. The Tymoshenko-proxy PM has quit. Now, the war will have to accelerate, and become more like Syria, with increasingly random Right Sektor atrocities, at the direction of the CIA. ESPECIALLY if MH17 is shown to be a failed US false flag.
Something will have to occur to generate sufficient outrage to start a full scale NATO-Russian war. The West seems to be hard at work in the propaganda arena. The current tack continues to be trying to provoke Putin to make a drastic move. But, so far, Putin seems to have figured that out! He is presenting HIS evidence about MH17, while quietly arming Donbass with defensive weaponry against the civilian terror bombing by Kiev in such a way as to maintain some thin deniability. He cannot allow the West to attack his flank and do nothing.
Minister of Propaganda and Perpetual War
United Fascist State, Inc.
A Journalist’s Integrity Doesn’t Preclude Media Propaganda
During a live broadcast on Wednesday, RT America presenter Liz Wahl announced she was stepping down, citing her disagreements with the network’s editorial policy. Ms. Wahl’s resignation comes on the heels of her colleague, Abby Martin’s recent comments, in which she voiced her disagreement with certain policies of the Russian government and asserted her editorial independence.
Aside from the individuals involved, name ONE US/EU propaganda ministry outlet (oops, I mean independent news network), that would not have gone to commercial 3 seconds after the speech varied from the teleprompter. Abby Martin’s speech was being read FROM the teleprompter, indicating producers’ awareness. I don’t believe Ms. Wahl’s comments, given during a newscast, rather than an opinion segment, were read from the prompter.
The issue is not their opinion in this conveniently isolated case. The CONTRAST of NETWORKS is the issue. The MORAL VACUITY of American news people and their inter-locking Boards of Directors, ADMITTED infiltrations by CIA, and obedient subservience to Wall Street and daily stock prices. News readers are paid to read the news. PROFESSIONAL PUNDITS claim to be independent, but are paid to regurgitate a PRE-DETERMINED particular point of view, to pretend to qualify for balance or “equal-time|”. NOBODY in MSM aspires to TRUTH, however. Including mercenary “spokespeople”. The only reason MSM is even discussing it, is that it’s RT – RUSSIAN TV. It’s the only reason RT is even acknowledged as a network by MSM, as Ms. Martin astutely points out.
Sell your party-line point of view, REPEAT IT as often as possible, and divide the public and the electorate, so that we incessantly argue the parenthetical semantics, instead of the facts, or objectively search for real solutions to serious social and political issues.
“Imminent Nuclear War in Ukraine,” a headline might read. “…Kim Kardashian Speaks Out on Crimea”. But first, here’s Jennie, with red carpet controversy at the Oscars.
MSM is DESIGNED to divide and conquer. If no controversy…. nobody tunes in, or buys a newspaper. RT, particularly Abby Martin, has always taken an alternative angle to MSM coverage, which serves a purpose in at least a variation from the corporate mantra instructions handed to most “reporters.” However, she is correct in her self-assessment of needing factual information about Ukraine. I have always considered that her historical use of language was obvious in its intent to show the dichotomy between RT coverage and MSM. I have never felt RT was pretending NOT to have a particular slant, whereas MSM is arrogant enough to believe that their script is perennially the Gospel according to Edward R. Murrow. It isn’t. All the more insidious for pretending to be unbiased.
The media controversy over these two personalities isn’t about them. It’s about broadcast media itself. “NEWS” IS NOT TRUTH. It’s SELECTIVE PROPAGANDA designed to either convince the masses about a particular agenda or put them to sleep.
If ANY GOOD comes from it, maybe one of the overpaid self-appointed news arbiters from a major network will have a mea culpa, pull a 2014 version of Howard Beale, and reveal his Employee Instruction Handbook…. perhaps personally autographed by Joseph Goebbels.
Meanwhile, Ms. Martin’s subsequent broadcast explained her position more thoroughly, further distinguishing herself, in klieg light contrast to her Mainstream competition, who most likely, no longer even recognize their own smug hypocrisy, as the Republic suffers from their neglect and dereliction of journalistic duty.
