Propaganda motives
Sep 4th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

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.
