Yellow Journalism by the Media of the Left and the Right is alive on the Middle East ISIS threat.
We are all going to die. Need boots on the ground yesterday. Bomb Iraq. Bomb Syria. The ratings driven media demands action.
Even Matt Drudge is milking the headlines creating images of fear and horror. Chicago is NEXT.
THEN - It was only a few months ago that the war drums were beating for us to bomb the anti-ISIS, pro-Russian government of Syria in support of the Islamist rebels.
NOW - Today the drums are saying (mostly) to bomb the Syrian Islamists which will help the anti-ISIS, pro-Russian government of Syria in their war.
We are ruled over by lunatics.
Through all of this insanity the mindless corporate directed media machine never addresses the evidence that the CIA and our allies are backing terrorists in Syria. The U.S., Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States pour weapons into Syria and then we claim to be "shocked" that those weapons are used in the region.
Now we see the usual parade of Beltway Elites demanding that we bomb both Syria and Iraq. But the media never asks their guests from where ISIS gets its weapons, money and a re-supply of ammo.
Readers of this blog know I am anti-Islam to the core. Still, am I the only one in the world who finds it odd that the U.S. is bombing the troops we armed?
Yellow Journalism from the Spanish- America War.
From then till now, the more things change the
more they stay the same.
