1984 revisited by the new Zealand MSM. Un fucking believable!
Lately I have been having the most amazing online discussions with people who without going through the trouble of actually exercising their critical thinking facilities completely accept the mainstream media meme that it is up to us to liberate poor brown people in Arab countries from their “Dictators”.
In fact I have been banned from the Pundit site for calling some of their “Pundits” on their bullshit (Feel free to add your two cents) with regards to their dimwitted epistles on Assad and their ignorance with regards to the many shades of grey surrounding the Syrian situation.
But what is the most astonishing part of their compliance to the ruling elites version of the “truth”is that none of these nincompoops has even the remotest inkling of how drastic the war on terror has changed in the last few Propaganda wars against the likes of Gadaffi and Assad.
In Afghanistan and Iraq we fought or so we were told this powerful new enemy which had been able to fly two planes in the Twin Towers and one in the Pentagon on 9/11 2001, breaking all laws of physics while doing so. they were called “al Qaeda” but now it seems we are fighting hand in hand with those same dangerous terrorists to “liberate” the peoples of Libya and Syria.
And I wonder; Am I the only one who thinks there is something very off with this situation?
What You Should Know about this “Unthinkable” Development…
In George Orwell’s novel 1984, the country of Oceania has been in a war against Eurasia for years.
Oceania suddenly switches sides, naming Eastasia as its enemy and making its mortal enemy, Eurasia, its new ally.
The government uses propaganda to convince people that, “We’ve always been at war with Eastasia”. The dumbed-down public doesn’t even notice that they’ve switches sides, and blindly rallies around Eurasia as its perennial friend and ally.
The same thing is happening in real life with Al Qaeda.
Western governments and mainstream media have admitted that Al Qaeda is fighting against the secular Syrian government, and that the West is supporting the Syrian opposition … which is helping Al Qaeda.
The U.S. also funds terrorist groups within Iran.
Of course, Al Qaeda was blamed for 9/11, and the entire decades-long “War on Terror” was premised on rooting out Al Qaeda and related groups.
So the fact that we now consider Al Qaeda fighters to be allies in any way, shape or form is positively Orwellian.
Remember, as Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser admitted on CNN, we organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets. (he also told the Senate in 2007 that the war on terror is “a mythical historical narrative”. )
As professor of strategy at the Naval War College and former National Security Agency intelligence analyst and counterintelligence officer John R. Schindler documents, the U.S. supported Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda terrorists in Bosnia.
But obviously we lost control and they turned against us … and then it took us years to hunt down and kill Bin Laden. Right?
