Propaganda motives

Is Amer­i­ca Fudg­ing the Num­bers of Syr­i­an Casu­al­ties? When Sec­re­tary of State John
Ker­ry picked up his mal­lets to beat the drums of war he told us all
that the Syr­i­an gov­ern­ment had killed near­ly 1,500 peo­ple in a
chem­i­cal attack in August, more than 400 of which were
chil­dren.

The Syr­i­an Obser­va­to­ry for Human Rights, gen­er­al­ly regard­ed as
one of the most reli­able sources of infor­ma­tion on casu­al­ty fig­ures
in Syr­ia, says it has con­firmed 502 deaths, includ­ing 80 chil­dren
and 137 women. Rami Abdul-Rahman, a Syr­i­an expa­tri­ate who runs the
orga­ni­za­tion from his home in Britain, said he was shocked by the
White House’s count.

Abdul-Rahman the­o­rized the Unit­ed States got these num­bers from
oppo­si­tion groups with­in Syr­ia who exag­ger­ate the num­bers in the
hopes of get­ting us involved in the war. [Rea­son]

Maybe the pro­pa­gan­dists in Wash­ing­ton just decid­ed that they need­ed to accuse the Syr­i­an gov­ern­ment of killing more chil­dren than the num­ber of chil­dren Oba­ma actu­al­ly has killed, lest peo­ple start ask­ing embar­rass­ing ques­tions about who exact­ly should be the tar­get of a “human­i­tar­i­an inter­ven­tion.”

US Politics

There’s a scene in the movie Cock­neys vs Zom­bies where two mobs of zom­bie foot­ball hooli­gans start fight­ing each oth­er. I’ve nev­er seen a bet­ter metaphor for US pol­i­tics.
