I've been reading a bit on the recent massacre in Houla. Children being murdered execution style gets under my skin and makes my blood boil. I don't care who's children they are or where they live........they are children!
I did some further digging around on the story and went to one of my favorite sources, Media Lens.
Well, it seems like the good ole boys are at it again. You know who I'm talking about here.......The Blood for Money Gang. The Mafia pales in comparison to the souless evil these people practice. This piece of the reading sums it up quite well:
We recognise the bloody ruthlessness of the Syrian Baathists, epitomised by Assad's father and continued now by his son, Bashar. Whatever the truth of Houla, the reaction of the corporate media has, yet again, made a mockery of the claim that it is a 'free press'. Rather, it has propagandised relentlessly in promoting the US-UK view of the conflict. Once again, war in pursuit of regime change is the real goal behind the 'humanitarian' deceit.
With its usual depth of sincerity and compassion, Murdoch’s Times commented:
‘This newspaper is as wary as anyone in Britain of becoming once again involved in foreign struggles.’
Tragi-comically echoing John Lennon, the editors sighed:
‘We wanted and argued to give peace a chance… But what kind of country would Britain be, and what kind of people would young Syrians take us for, if we allowed the slaughter to continue?’ (Leader, ‘Responsibility to Protect,’ The Times, May 30, 2012)
War, again war, always war - endless war! But then corporate greed is a form of eternal war in pursuit of profit. We are living, very clearly, in a pathologically violent and structurally insane society.
