UPDATE: Iraq VP to U.S.: Stay Out of Our Civil War Former VP of Iraq, a Sunni, was railroaded and chased out of the country back in 2012 by Nouri al-Maliki. He talks about the legitimate opposition movement to Obama’s puppet dictatorship and says they have no idea where ISIS™ came from. Well, they came from the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and Israel. He fails to understand that ISIS is simply a marketing campaign creating a justification for Obama to drop bombs on the thousands of Iraqis who are sick and tired of the neo-liberal state we turned their country into.
UPDATE: Seems the Mosul Dam story was fabricated as well. All it takes is a Twitter account and PhotoShop. Makes Wag the Dog look silly by comparison.
Just when you thought American marketing/politics couldn’t get any lamer… some half-wit businessman comes up with a new incubator babies story as if we can’t remember past yesterday. 400 Palestinian kids have been slaughtered by the IDF… and that really happened. No “Nurse” Nayirah story needed there. Why doesn’t ObamaGod bomb Israel’s tanks and artillery positions I wonder?
You have got to be kidding me. No way.
CNN (of course it would be CNN) aired a story the other day with Mark Arabo, national spokesman for “Ending Genocide in Iraq,” in which the guest laid out the most compelling reasons for getting behind Obama’s bombing of the growing resistance in Iraq: another “incubator babies” story.
“A Christian Holocaust is in our mist. We are actually calling this a Christian genocide… Day by day, it is getting worse and worse. More children are being beheaded. Mothers are being raped and killed. Fathers are being hung. Right now, 300,000 Christians are fleeing Iraq and living in neighboring cities.” Gateway Pundit
The beheading of the children and decorating a park with their heads placed on sticks. This is offered up as justification for all us bleeding heart liberals to get behind President Peace Prize’s latest bombing campaign.
Yes, there it is folks. Wanna see the dramatic testimony? Not as convincing as the ““Nurse” Nayirah in tears” episode, but worth watching none the less.
Wow. He is so believable isn’t he? He doesn’t sound like someone just making that shit up at all. The conviction in his monotone lifeless voice is brought about by a lifetime of lying through his teeth one way or the other and has nothing at all to do with the fact that what he is saying is such unbelievable bullshit, even he can hardly push through it.
The funniest part is when the CNN infomercial actor makes hims repeat his ludicrous claim. I guess he wanted him to try to cry or something. But, no such luck.
Like “Nurse” Nayirah, Mark Arabo has some interesting political ties as well (she wasn’t a nurse. she was the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. never saw what she claimed to have seen because it didn’t happen.)
Mark Arabo – “nominated to the Regional Advisory Committee for the FBI..In 2011, Arabo met with President Barack Obama to discuss issues confronting Christian minorities within Iraq… has also met with various other leaders on a range of different topics that include Prince Mirad of Jordan, Former President Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr., and Jimmy Carter.” Mark’s website
Would you like to know another curious similarity between the “Nurse” Nayirah story and Mark’s beheading babies yarn? Marketing.
Hill & Knowlton
It is unclear how much of Nayirah’s testimony was coached. Though the firm was supposed to provide only stylistic help, it was reported that H&K “provided witnesses, wrote testimony, and coached the witnesses for effectiveness.”
Nayirah’s testimony was widely publicized. Hill & Knowlton, which had filmed the hearing, sent out a video news release to Medialink, a firm which served about 700 television stations in the United States.
That night, portions of the testimony aired on ABC’s Nightline and NBC Nightly News reaching an estimated audience between 35 and 53 million Americans. Seven senators cited Nayirah’s testimony in their speeches backing the use of force.[Note 1] President George Bush repeated the story at least ten times in the following weeks. Her account of the atrocities helped to stir American opinion in favor of participation in the Gulf War.
And heeeeere’s Markie:
“… he earned his Bachelors of Science Business Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications. During his time in San Diego State University he was named to the National Deans List for three consecutive years, 2001-2002, 2002-2003, and 2003-2004 and also earn a Certified E-Marketing Associate.
After graduation he was offered a role within Anheuser Busch Sales team of San Diego, a subsidiary of Anheuser Busch Inc. During this time, he was trained in seamless selling, viral marketing, promotional events, and was a key asset to their marketing department.” Mark’s website
Yes, Markie Mark is a career marketing man, who apparently uses his political influence to bully the local Chaldean business community. He also opposes any hike to the minimum wage. Here you can read about how Arabo was unleashed by San Diego’s “overlords” to try to overturn the city council’s vote to raise the minimum wage. Apparently his trade association is nothing more than a bunch of liquor store owners getting rich selling poison in economically depressed neighborhoods at vastly inflated prices. He donates heavily to the dems. I guess he’s “progressive”
To sum it all up, this marketing sleazebag P.O.S. is doing his level best, doing what he does best, lying, trying to garner public support for more indiscriminate ObamaBombs (and more dead Iraqi children) by reaching out and making this war-crime personal to us. That’s how marketers think they rule the world. “Won’t somebody think of the babies”
His efforts are such a tired cliche at this point an intern could have come up with it. The fact that he is simply rehashing the old incubator babies story proves he hasn’t got a fucking creative bone in his body. Beheading babies. What an idiot.
Pretending to care about children while helping gin up support for bombs that will inevitably kill children, is the definition of a moral abyss. Mark Arabo sees this as just good business. He works to promote the latest incubator babies story knowing full well it will endear him to the powers that be. Like “Curveball” before him, the soulless ladder climber never looks back.
Sometimes as I am writing these things I think to myself, Bill Hicks did it better. Because he did.
