Unconscionable Media Warmongering

Media scoundrels promote war.

by Stephen Lendman

Washington needs media support to wage wars and plan new ones. Broadcast and print scoundrels oblige. 

Paid liars infest Western media. Managed news misinformation creates enemies. Fear is stoked. War is cheerled, glorified, and sanitized to suppress truths too grim to report.

Reasons for war aren't explained. Fake ones are invented. Public opinion is manipulated to support what should be condemned. 

Wars beget more of them. America wages permanent ones. It's longstanding official policy. Where it ends, who knows.

Washington's targets Syria and Iran. Destroying both countries and remaking them in America's image is planned. Media scoundrels turn a blind eye. Imperial dominance alone matters.

Daily articles, commentaries and editorials promote Washington's agenda. Willing co-conspirators invent reality. Media scoundrels fell from grace long ago. Conflicts of interest proliferate. 

Administration and Pentagon handouts substitute for journalism. Reporters and commentators comprise a virtual Noah's Ark of scam artists. Savvy readers ignore them. Maybe some day everyone will and tune out propaganda TV.

Progressive Radio News Hour regular Peter Eyre explained New World Order methodology. Paul Wolfowitz planned it two decades ago. 

Project For the New American Century members endorsed it. Bush officials implemented it. Plans were made to destroy seven or more countries. Wars are proceeding as intended. Democrats wage them like Republicans.

Planned economic turmoil accompanies them. The worst of all possible worlds continues. A new dark age arrived. Global war threatens. Police state harshness targets non-believers. Bad as things are now, imagine what's coming if not challenged and stopped.

New York Times commentator Nicholas Kristof calls Obama AWOL in Syria. He smells blood and wants more shed.

He praised US intervention in Libya. He ignored another country destroyed. He considers it a foreign policy success. He questions why Syria isn't targeted the same way.

He stops short of urging invasion. He wants stepped up intervention other ways. Act aggressively, he said. He added that Clinton defense secretary William Perry said he favors a no-fly zone and joint US-Turkey "military intervention."
