Media Lies: Fabricating news in Syria and lessons for Sri Lanka
Posted on June 1st, 2012

First things first, since when and by whom has the US been appointed the world’s policeman to accuse fellow nations, oust political leaders, invade nations, fire unmanned drones that kill civilians and use western media to brainwash the public into thinking that the US is saving humanity and safeguarding human rights? After a series of manipulated staged “rebellions” in the Middle East/Africa the US and West are now in Syria and the media has been exposed for fabricating stories to advance the agenda of the US and the West.

The media in tow with Western human rights organizations declare themselves the mouthpieces of the truth being relayed to all corners of the world whenever and wherever conflicts take place. Well that is what they would like us to believe. Where are they getting their numbers from and how reliable are the figures they are quoting as if they were watching these incidents take place?

Since we are not too far off from Sri Lanka’s own experience we can empathize with the situation in Syria. We know how numbers from “anonymous” groups were used to demonize a Government! Ironically the actions of the West made local leaders into bigger heroes particularly because people began to read through the Western designs. The sources favored by the West end up becoming publicized globally by mainstream media and becomes accepted as “factual evidence” quoted and used to question politicians by the West, foreign think tanks, international humanitarian organizations and even the UN. Funnily enough non-elected bodies become “democratic movements” and pagans of virtue. They can shoot, they can kill but it is only when the Government defends which is within its right that the West shouts foul play.

Such was the case with the report of deaths in Homs and the public are often misguided on what to believe. Such was also the case with the civilian deaths quoted by these sources that is being used against the Sri Lankan Government without any proof. There is a difference in “reportedly been killed” or “reported deaths” “”…” yet the fanfare associated with the media coverage of the killing aims at laying the blame at the Syrian forces “”…” and objective is thus achieved. Mainstream media completely ignores the truth or rather is not interested in the truth because the truth is an obstacle to their agenda.

Then the UN takes over by giving their estimate of deaths which actually is from the same source! Incidentally in the case of Syria, the source happens to be the Local Coordination Committee which has been organizing most of the protests across Syria. Sounds like our own set of local NGOs who became the source in Sri Lanka. Most often dissidents are encouraged and even financed by the West. We can but recall just one incident wherein the Sri Lankan military targeted an LTTE training center in the middle of the Vanni jungles and the entire world including the UN came down on Sri Lanka accepting LTTE’s position that it was an orphanage! LTTE “”…” child soldiers “”…” orphanage in the jungle”¦. just does not make sense!

It is not just the West that is conniving to topple Syria. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are all chipping in. They have even openly supplied arms and ammunition to these rebels. There are foreign forces inside Syria, just like how they landed in Libya to topple the Gaddafi government. Along with NATO they destroyed civilian infrastructure and used media to project to us that Libyans rebels had to be given the credit!

Yet in all the countries that have seen an Arab Spring the people are beginning to realize they have been given an Arab winter”¦.reign of Muslim Brotherhood means absolutely no freedom for Muslim women and the establishment of Islamic fundamentalism and Shariah laws. Is this better than ousting a “dictator”?

The impression CNN, BBC and other mainstream media enjoy projecting is a country burning apart “”…” buildings in ruins, dead bodies everywhere, state security on the rampage”¦.but unbiased visitors to Syria have found out that the scenario was nothing like what was being relayed. How can a few visitors counter what mainstream media powerfully relays? The trend is to cook up story after story to justify unlawful military attacks. What country would not take action to defend itself against extremist actions especially when they are being armed from overseas?

Now the next logical question is that after over a year why has President Assad not been defeated if he was so abhorred by his people and prefer the rebels instead especially when the West and media in particular are giving its fullest support to the rebels even going so far as to arm and train them? What is clear is that while all the people of Syria may not love Assad they certainly do not hate him or prefer the rebels any better. Where does that leave the West in their gameplan to get rid of Assad.

The plan to take over Syria was contrived years ago “”…” the rebellion was just a whitewash to facilitate the entry of the West. The Kofi-Annan 6 point peace plan was written by US meant as a ploy to buy time to set the situation for attacks. We know the UN statements thereafter”¦with UN Secretary General “disturbed” by the violations by Assad’s forces and harassment to opposition. We can only recall how Sri Lanka was treated in the final months of the conflict.

Western media has confirmed that UK/CIA/M16 training anti-Assad western backed insurgents even supplying them with arms and ammunition and equipment. How can we accept that the Syrian uprising was a natural one against the Syrian Government? Moreover what credibility do these insurgents have when special forces from the West are on the ground assisting them to topple Syria’s Government? Not a word is said by any of the mainstream media to question why western governments should be helping insurgents who they had trained to actually start the rebellion in the first place.

To expose how unfair mainstream media has been in their reporting of Syria a few examples need to be looked at. The fabrications and lies are too long to list out. Just youtube to see the stories that would take you step by step showcasing the lies told by CNN, BBC, French news and practically all western mainstream media while the West expels Syrian diplomats from crimes committed by the West!

Reuters had to apologize for relaying false images on Syria “”…” the images were from Lebanon.

Similarly Al Jazeera ran a story on an incident that took place in Al Baida Village, Syria whereas in reality the video was taken in Iraq in the 1990s.

Returning to Sri Lanka, it is because of these hypocrisies in Western attitude, western actions and western strategies that we do not trust a single proposal, suggestion or welcome any teams on the basis of humanitarian assistance or technical expertise.

We have seen how the West has used their military might, made a puppet of the UN, carry out illegal invasions and how Western owned media have facilitated in fabricating, manipulating and totally deceiving the global public. Can they deny any of these accusations?

Now can the West blame us for doubting their actions or doubt what the mainstream media relays when they have proved beyond doubt that they cannot be trusted?

    Western media’s reader/viewership is falling drastically. Many do not believe anymore in their lies, fabricated stories and media hype. It is obvious that their agenda is the same as those of the Christian West and they operate in tandem. All what they have achieved over the years, the Christian West and their media is universal aversion to their conduct in the rest of the world. Like the emperor’s clothes they are seen for what they are and despised. However with their wealth they are still able to call the shots as their are many traitors who can be bought with their money to do the cat’s paw work.

    Most now read the Western Media to read between the lines and not to take what they portray as the truth.

    Boru ( Biased) Broadcasting Corporation, the CNN and Fox channels and other similar media are digging their own graves for soon people in their own countries will come to despise them for what they are!

    Wikileaks, Occupy Wall Street and other similar movements representing the 99% will eventually triumph!

    @Ratanapala, while I would be one of the first to welcome your statement “Most now read the Western Media to read between the lines and not to take what they portray as the truth” unfortunately I feel this is not the case. Majority in the West and some in Sri Lanka still believe every word that is put out by British Brainwashing Corp, CNN, Al Jazeera etc. What is even more worrying is that most of these people act like zombies at the command of Western ‘news’ makers. I think a lot more needs to be done to expose the lies and deception of the Western administrations around the world and get messages like these down to the grass roots levels in developing countries. Otherwise, people in these developing countries will remain in chains for many more years to come.

    I hope Russia will stand by Syria.

    Shenali,
    Your articles are full of sense but I do not see any advise as to how we should deal with the Rampent west. What advise would you give to the general public as to how we should deal with these beasts.

    There is no man feared more by Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionists than Russian President Vladimir Putin.And while the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist West and its lackeys at the Saudi-led Gulf Cooperation Council would have us believe that armed jihadists in Syria who are murdering innocent native civilians are “lovers of democracy,” Putin remains unshaken in his defense of International law.

    Now, with three Russian warships recently docked in Syria’s port of Tartus, Putin’s actions speak louder than his words. And Talmudic Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist, Senator Joseph Lieberman, who is the first senator to call for a No Fly Zone over Syria and for arming the Syrian opposition—which in reality is made up of Islamic fundamentalists and foreign mercenaries—has gotten Putin’s message.

    Liberman said “We’re not going to stand by and allow this Assad to slaughter his people like his father did. He’s going to run the risk of having the world community come in and impose a No Fly Zone. And in doing so, we’re being consistent with our American values.”

    Liberman’s “American values” have already underpinned the massacre of scores of Libyan civilians and the decimation of a once orderly and contented Libyan civilian infrastructure. And now Liberman wants to do the same in Syria as well.

    Because Bashar al-Assad has intensified Syria’s policy of resisting Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist imperialism ever since taking over the reins from his father, Hafez al-Assad, in 2000, International Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionists and their shill, the USA, pursuing its habitual violent program of regime change this time in Syria in order to install a pro-Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist dictatorship in Damascus. Since then, Assad has grown the economy at a healthy rate of 5% a year. Since then, Syria is debt free and will not allow any Rothschild Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar banks. And you’ll be hard pressed to find any McDonald’s or Pizza Huts in Syria…it’s forbidden territory for internationalist Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist-funded corporations.

    And since then, due to Assad’s independent, self-directed, economic development – a program shared by all US regime change targets – the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist globalist bankers and their corporate pawns are being thwarted from privatizing and politically Zionizing the industries and government of the sovereign nation of Syria.

    The Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist influenced US State Department put forward this very same Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist banker’s agenda when it stated that “Syria refuses to join an increasingly interconnected global economy.”

    The Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, of course a Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist, Jeffrey Feltman, highlighted Jewish Finance Capital’s plan for “democracy” in Syria — (READ: The “humanitarian” BOMBING of Syrian civilians) — in his recent testimony before the Zionist-led Senate Committee on Foreign Relations said “Bashar al-Assad is destroying Syria and destabilizing the region. An orderly democratic transition that removes Assad from power and restores stability is clearly in the United States’ interests. It will support our goals of promoting democracy and human rights.”

    It’s the same old LIE: The Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist West is framing the conflict in Syria as one between the “lovers of democracy” led by the Free Syrian Army and a murderous tyrant…so very, very far from the facts on the ground as Russia and the Syrian government have been contesting all along.

    This has been verified by the Observer Mission recently sent to Syria by the Arab League which stated in paragraph 75 of its suppressed Report “There have been incidents that include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the police, members of the media and fuel pipelines. Some of those attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by other armed opposition groups,”.

    While the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist Master Plan for a Greater Israel extending from Tel Aviv to Tehran – from the Nile to the Euphrates – by fragmenting Israel’s bordering nations into competing militias and warlords, Vladimir Putin remains firm and uncompromising.

    You can hear it all the way from Moscow to Tel Aviv:

    A clear and resounding “Nyet” flaming forth from Vladimir Putin, the world’s foremost and only defender against Zionism’s warmongering, world-destroying, ugly designs!

    Thayabaran,
    Why is Rajapakse signing pacts with Doha, another supporter or puppet of Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist ?
    Why signing pacts with Karzaktan ?

  8. Vis8 Says:

    These Syrian “rebels” are non other than Al-Quaeda extremists, trying best to gain a foothold on the Middle East…. And Obama and Hillary, in their haste for a “regime change” in Syria are actually funding, arming and helping Al-Quaeda :) … Wont be surprised if they start a “war” in Iran… Obama needs the ‘war sentiment’ to get re-elected, remember???

    And, you are absolutely right: The US, in the guise of “democracy” are trying to move into the Mid East, and Asia. Last week the US (Panetta) announced that most of the US Naval fleet will now move to Asia… All this to counter China, and create instability in the region.

    Time to invite China to Trincomalee and Hambantota. China and Russia are the real superpowers. The US is going down, far worse than the “Great” Britain. They will be totally under debt to China by 2024, and just another country trying to sell their ‘arms’ to whoever that would buy it.
