Holy Twisted History Batman: Watch John Kirby Lie With Every Breath He Takes on Aleppo and Mosul

by Scott Creighton

This is disgusting. Remember back when a republican was in office and an administration official would come out and lie about events unfolding in Iraq or Afghanistan? The left would launch themselves in a way that would get them ejected from an NFL game but now that President Peace Prize is using his special left-cover superpowers… nada, zip, zilch, “nothing too see here” coming from that morally upstanding “anti-war” crowd… especially since Killary represents a continuation of the Obama administration.

The “moderate” terrorists are fighting FOR the people of Syria in east Aleppo? The Syrian military forces are targeting hospitals, schools and civilian infrastructure in Aleppo whereas the coalition in Mosul are using “precision airstrikes” taking care to avoid civilian casualties? Wow.

Watch John Kirby lie with every breath he takes to reporters in this press conference. Literally every damn breath. It’s like something out of 1984 or “V”

  1. After fifteen years of non-stop U.S. aggression, the U.S. government still claims to have the support of the “international community.”

    Example:

    06:23 – How is the attack on Aleppo different from the attack on Mosul?

    JOHN KIRBY: It’s radically different, and to compare the two is insulting. In Mosul there is a coalition of SIXTY-SIX NATIONS who had planned the attack for months with the vast support and the legitimacy of the international community to retake a city from dash” (a.k.a. “ISIS”™). In Aleppo the bulk of the resistance is coming from moderate opposition groups and civilians who are victims of attacks by Russia and the Syrian regime.”

    I’ve never seen a State Dept. spokesman with such lousy speaking skills. And Kirby was a real admiral in the U.S. Navy. Wow. He is so lame that even John McCain (!) has publicly called him an idiot.

    “Imagine two cities. Both are under siege by the forces of the government of that country. Both cities are occupied by fanatics, who commit terrible atrocities, such as beheading people. But there is a vital difference.

    In one siege, the government soldiers are described as liberators by Western reporters embedded with them, who enthusiastically report their battles and air strikes. There are front page pictures of these heroic soldiers giving a V-sign for victory. There is scant mention of civilian casualties.

    In the second city – in another country nearby – almost exactly the same is happening. Government forces are laying siege to a city controlled by the same breed of fanatics. The difference is that these fanatics are supported, supplied and armed by “us” – by the United States and Britain. They even have a media centre that is funded by Britain and America. Another difference is that the government soldiers laying siege to this city are the bad guys, condemned for assaulting and bombing the city – which is exactly what the good soldiers do in the first city.

    Confusing? Not really. Such is the basic double standard that is the essence of propaganda. I am referring, of course, to the current siege of the city of Mosul by the government forces of Iraq, who are backed by the United States and Britain and to the siege of Aleppo by the government forces of Syria, backed by Russia. One is good; the other is bad.

    What is seldom reported is that both cities would not be occupied by fanatics and ravaged by war if Britain and the United States had not invaded Iraq in 2003. That criminal enterprise was launched on lies strikingly similar to the propaganda that now distorts our understanding of the civil war in Syria. Without this drumbeat of propaganda dressed up as news, the monstrous ISIS and Al-Qaida and al-Nusra and the rest of the jihadist gang might not exist, and the people of Syria might not be fighting for their lives today. ”
    John Pilger article that covers Propaganda including our “interventions” (“Intervention — what a polite, benign, Guardianword, whose real meaning, for Libya, was death and destruction.”) in Libya, Ukraine, Somalia, ad nauseam.

    BTW, Scott, somebody gleeped your idea (halfway down the page) and is selling “CTHULHU FOR PRESIDENT” t-shirts….I smell a lawsuit here.

    • Pilger keeps gulping down the Empire’s kool-aid.

      He echoes the Empire’s lie that the U.S. attack on insurgents in Mosul is the same as the Russian-Syrian campaign against terrorist mercenaries in Aleppo.

      Pilger also echoes the Empire’s lie that the war in Syria is a civil war (when in reality it is a proxy war) and the war in Iraq is a war on “ISIS.”™

  3. THE EMPIRE IN ACTION

    The Russian and Syrian governments provide humanitarian corridors out of east Aleppo. Anyone who wants to leave the city may do so if he lays down his arms.

    Not so with the U.S. bombardment of Mosul. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigan, commander of US air forces in the Middle East, says the USA will conduct airstrikes against anyone who tries to leave Mosul. All refugees, armed and unarmed, children and adults, will be exterminated as “human shields.”

    The same source (USA Today) claims that all Shi’ite death squads are controlled by evil Iran, not by themselves or by the puppet government in Baghdad.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Today at a UN Security Council meeting, Samantha Power (Obama’s ambassador to the UN) asked the Saudis to halt their 19-month-old bombardment of Yemen and accept that there is no military solution. Meanwhile her boss (Obama) continues to provide the Saudis with arms, intelligence, and logistical support for the bombardment.

    Samantha Power emphasized that the Saudis had a right to destroy foreign nations in order to “defend themselves.”
