Black propaganda is revealed immediately by its motto. ‘Nation shall speak Truth unto Nation’; it strangles truth in most minutes of every day. It is the outfall for united corporate and government power (Il Duce’s summary of fascism), the monarchy, Zion and endless war. It is the instrument for the projection of British power, such as remains. It is benign in its brand and malign in its purpose. And it gets steadily worse although there are windows through which truth can be glimpsed. The other night at 3am on the World Service, Heart and Soul, John Laurensonreported from Bethlehem. (1) It was the blessed truth. Selin Girit, a Turkish lady reporter for the BBC, has told clear truth about the mining disaster at Soma; she said how safety has fallen to profit in privatised mines.
The new Pearl Harbour that Cheney said they needed within 10 days of ‘gaining office’ is a good starting point for considering the BBC’s central role in setting the scene for terrible human suffering. When that Pearl Harbour arrived in its full cinematographic horror, was it not a BBC lady journalist who forecast the collapse of Tower 7 (in its own footprint) 30 minutes before the event occurred. When the western barbarians started bombing the poorest people on earth in ‘Ghan on the 9/11- OBL pretext, one can be sure the BBC did not film those dying of cold and hunger as many thousands fled to the mountains in that winter.
Although this massive corporation never mentions PNAC, the Project for the New American Century, it has promoted its aims in every way. In 2002, we had a succession of Zio-Cons on our screens in the ‘news’ and ‘discussion’ programmes. Perle, Wolfowitz, Edelman, Bolton — aagh, Cristol ad infinitum. The removal of the new Hitler, Saddam Hussein was essential. Their blood brothers in the UK war machine joined in. The US/UK/Zionist entity axis was revving up to kill; the ‘Nation Speaks Truth unto Nation’ outfit was revving in synchrony. It is a tribute to the common sense of the British people that a majority opposed that ‘war’ on a disarmed nation that had already been ruined by draconian sanctions and repeated bombings, in spite of megawatts of ‘prop’.
The systematic and all invading nature of BBC black propaganda will be described in following articles. Among current pressing ‘news’ reports like the abduction of school girls by Boka Haram, ‘barrel bombing’ by the Syrian ‘regime’ looms large. One could allude to that early terrorist Guy Fawkes and fellow conspirators who plotted to blow up the House of Lords in 1605. Fawkes was found in the cellars with 36 barrels of gunpowder. Many today would relish success of the same if both Houses were propelled skywards when no dissimulating denizens were present!
‘Auntie Beeb’ has been pushing Assad’s barrel bombs out of ‘regime’ helicopters. A recent report by Ian Pannell of the ‘Speak Truth’ brigade stuck in the craw. (2) Pannell has form in Libya and an alleged attack on a school that he reported earlier this year has been subject to minute and withering analysis by Robert Stuart.(3)
So I wrote to the laughably named complaints department. This is but one speck of black sand on the beach of BBC lies. Here is one instance of the BBC speaking untruths to its people and the world.
- Title — Today programme — today 28 April. The Syrian ‘regime’ — barrel bombs — AleppoOnline complaints BBCDear BBC,It was evident from early in this programme that there was to be a sustained barrel bombing of the listener, both here and abroad. One might guess that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office was involved in this assault. There was also the possibility that it locked in nicely with the continued isolation/belittlement of Putin and Russia, the latter being an erstwhile ally critical to the defeat of the Third Reich (by massive sacrifice).
There was the insinuation, yet again, that the Assad government had been responsible for the nerve gas attacks. I have not heard from the BBC that the evidence, from Mother Agnes to Seymour Hersh, was against this source. And neither have I heard the BBC pose cui bono against this accusation. Did not the 100 plus little victims not perish shortly before the Syrian government representatives attended the Geneva conference?
My central complaint. You alleged, via Ian Pannell, that ‘barrel bombs’ were being dropped indiscriminately from 6000ft from helicopters, by day and night. On the other hand, when Sirte was being ‘pounded’ by HE, Hellfire and Cruise missiles, you probably inferred there was discrimination; the estimated 50,000 Libyan civilian deaths were ‘collateral’ damage. YOU BROADCAST NO STATEMENT FROM THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT IN RESPONSE TO THE VERY SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS TRANSMITTED BY MR PANNELL TODAY. WHY NOT? I add that I did not hear the later segment, but in any event, a Syrian response should have accompanied each of the earlier segments thus meeting accepted journalistic rules.
The reply came within 3 days, most unusually –
Dear Mr Halpin
Thanks for contacting us regarding BBC Radio 4â€²s ‘Today’ broadcast 28th April 2014.
We understand you feel a recent report concerning Syria was biased and failed to look at all aspects of the situation.
We can assure you of our commitment to impartial reporting. We seek to provide the information which will enable listeners to make up their own minds; to show the political reality and provide the forum for debate, giving full opportunity for all viewpoints to be heard.
It is not always possible or practical to reflect all the different opinions on a subject within individual reports. Editors are charged to ensure that over a reasonable period they reflect the range of significant views, opinions and trends in their subject area.
The BBC does not seek to denigrate any view, nor to promote any view. It seeks rather to identify all significant views, and to test them rigorously and fairly on behalf of the audience. Among other evidence, audience research indicates widespread confidence in the impartiality of the BBC’s reporting.
We regret on this occasion you felt the need to complain and be assured that we’ve registered your concerns on our audience log. This is a daily report of audience feedback that’s made available to many BBC staff, including members of the BBC Executive Board, programme makers, channel controllers and other senior managers.
The audience logs are seen as important documents that can help shape decisions about future programming and content.
Thanks again for taking the time to contact us.
The vacuity is typical, as well as the failure to answer the question. Licence paying listeners are insulted all ways round.
A short e-mail was sent to me by a man of Syrian birth along with a misty picture. Barrel bombs were spoken of, and their first use by Zionist terrorists in Palestine was recalled. Then they were rolled down into markets to terrorise the locals. These barrels are gas cylinders. Closer examination of those at the rear of the load confirms there are fins welded to stems which are in turn fixed to the base of the cylinders. A likely fuse can be seen on the ‘nose’ of one or two cylinders.
Do the operatives look like Syrian army or air force personnel?
Is it likely that these are to be used as car bombs, which is what my informant believes?
Is it not more likely, indeed certain, that these weapons were designed for aerial use? Given the crudity of shape, there would be no chance of pinpoint accuracy, but the fins would stop them tumbling as they fell to earth. That would ensure the fuse on its nose triggered its deadly load.
If we assume, and I believe rightly, that these two men are ‘rebels/jihadists’ supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and many other dictatorships at all points west, to what air strip or helicopter pad are they taking their lethal load in obedience to their version of Allah’s will?
They will not be selling them to the president’s forces who will then use their remaining helicopters to drop them ‘day and night’ from 6000ft as per Pannell.
There is the possibility that one or some of the many factions have a helicopter or two. There are reports and images showing them capturing an air base in the north, with at least one apparently intact helicopter to be seen. And there is also the possibility that helicopters are being provided by the jackal states across the borders. It is likely that Syrian radar air defences have been ‘degraded’, as well as air to air and ground to air attack capability. ‘Israeli’ jets have attacked weapon trains at least six times; advanced Russian missiles were destroyed we were told. Whether government, ‘rebels’ or both possess ground to air missiles, any helicopter will stay high.
Another image showing the same ‘cottage industry’ bombs was found via the Google search engine.(4&5) The operative is inserting a fuse. Again, the clothes, shoes and place put him and the weapons outside the Syrian forces. But is he manufacturing barrel bombs for the government? That seems unlikely.
Let us imagine these indiscriminate weapons are somehow being dropped by the enemy factions or their surrogates. What purpose is being served? Certainly urban populations are being terrorised by the continued risk of death, maiming and homelessness. And these bombs are now ingrained in the consciousness of many abroad.
Many nations, with their psychopathic leaderships, are determined that Bashir Assad should at least be toppled. Many want him dead, thus pre-empting the craven ICC which they also threaten him with. Alistair Burt MP is a Christian Zionist who served until last Autumn in the Foreign and Commonwealth under that psychopath with the shining bald head and the double bass voice, Mr William Hague. He was tickled to speak from the podium aged 15 at a Conservative Party conference and to announce a year later that he was a Zionist. Burt was quoted in the Guardian as saying
“Burt insisted the British government “knew exactly what would happen if there was not a strike against Assad over chemical weapons. He goes on. And the only thing that would deflect this man and this regime is if they fear they are going to end up in a storm drain with a bayonet up their backside. If they don’t fear that, they will go on killing as many people as they need to stay in power.”
My complaint about this barbarism was taken step-wise through ”standards” committees and quickly ended in the House of Commons. There are no standards, no discipline, and no principle.(6&7) The realm is rotten to the core.
On the 15th of this month, the ‘Friends of Syria’ held their first meeting since January. Hague announced the evil conclusions of this cabal in the gilded nest of British cunning, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.(8) The conspirators represented Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and of course, the US in the shape of Kerry — hair and all. (8)
Hague — ‘… the ruthless utter disregard for human life‘, ‘to… do everything we can to hold the Assad regime accountable for the terror it is perpetrating.”
Kerry commented on France’s claim that the Assad government has used chemical weapons at least 14 times since October. And ‘Out of today’s meeting, every facet of what can be done is going to be ramped up — every facet.’
Now, you would not know from the press releases that two others were present in London. A successor to Madeleine Albright, Ms Tzipi Livni, and Ahmad Al-Jarba, head of the Syrian National Council. Although Kerry attacks the upcoming presidential elections in Syria as being undemocratic, he called Al-Jarba ‘President’ in his speech within the FCO.(9) We can be sure that all devices were discussed. This would include the pretexts for a NATO attack leading to the killing of President Assad and many other loyal Syrians. These entities remain utterly determined to destroy Syria and its people.
The ‘barrels’ and a claimed major loss of life are one possible pretext but of course there are others. Some have described oil barrels filled with explosive and metal fragments. The images above are plainly of aerial bombs, and unlike oil barrels, would be easy to handle in helicopters. The methods for decimating all the Arab states were outlined by Oded Yinon in Ralph Schoenman’s little book, The Hidden History of Zionism — Chapter 12.(10) Note ‘Fragmenting Syria’.
The decimation is well advanced. Some barrel bombs might later prove to be false flags with that over familiar blue star painted on the cylinder. We can be sure that the BBC and many other broadcasters will be ready to paint a resulting attack in shades of pink.
