From the Cold War to Korea...Western lies

Western diplomacy is based upon lies, more lies, and yet more lies, a manipulation of the truth, half-truths, a cynical representation of manipulated facts, screenshots, sound-bites and video clips to sway public opinion, while the lobbies do what they do to grab what they want and nobody bats an eyelid.

Remember President Ahmadi-Nejád of Iran threatening to wipe Israel off the map? He didn't. His statement was manipulated and misquoted but the western coverage and publication of the lie was enough to brand him a monster and his country a pariah. Remember NATO's promises to the USSR that if the Warsaw pact were dissolved, they wouldn't encroach eastwards? They did. Time after time after time after time after time, time and time again.

Remember the claims in the western press that the Brother Leader of Libya Muammar al-Qathafi was bombing his own people? Remember the claims that civilian homes were being strafed? Remember when Saif al-islam al-Qathafi travelled around with SKY News asking them to show him where the homes were that had been attacked by the Libyan Air Force? There weren't any.

Remember which is the only country in the world to have committed not one, but two, acts of nuclear terrorism? The same country whose military forces deployed Agent Orange in Vietnam, strafing civilians with horrific chemical weapons. Remember what NATO did in Libya? Targeting the grandchildren of Muammar al-Qathafi as "military assets" then refusing to apologise when the children were burnt alive?

Remember what NATO did in Libya? They bombed the water supply "to break the backs" of the people, they strafed the electricity grid to deprive civilians of light and energy, to deprive hospitals of power, to deprive incubators of electricity so that babies would die. Nice, huh? "To break their backs". Eh what?

And remember the lies of the clique of criminals which attacked Iraq, that Iraq had chemical and biological weapons, that Iraq was producing nuclear weapons, that Iraq posed a real and immediate threat to the USA and its allies (the countries it walks over and whose resources it owns)? "Magnificent foreign intelligence" was a Blair regime doctoral thesis sexed up after being copied and pasted from the Net; Saddam Hussein did not have Weapons of Mass Destruction, otherwise he would have used them and where was the real threat to the USA and its allies?

The answer is blowing in their lies. Remember the lies about the Syrian Government attempting to launch a chemical weapons attack against civilians? In the end, the only chemical weapons attack to have taken place was by the Syrian opposition, as documented in this column but then again, the western reports about that have disappeared.

Remember the claim that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea had declared war on its neighbor to the south and its ally the bully-boy USA? It didn't. Yet again a mistranslation, yet again hype and exaggeration. The "declaration" from Kim Jong Un was a "statement" of support, internally, referring to internal mechanisms and organisms mutually supporting each other in the event of an attack from the south, where the Republic of (South) Korea had been holding aggressive and belligerent military exercises with, who else, the USA?

And let us examine the modus operandi of NATO. We only have to scroll down to the foot of the articles in this newspaper, where we see cyber terrorist activities from NATO supporters, stalkers who trawl the Net looking for details about the journalists who dare to exercise their right to freedom of speech, hijackers who steal the IDs of commentators, terrorists who hack into social network accounts.
