NGOs are urging Syrian rebels to release a Ukrainian journalist, Anhar Kochneva, who is set to be executed Thursday. Meanwhile the group behind the kidnapping warned it would now target all Russians, Ukrainians and Iranians on Syrian soil.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), ARTICLE 19, the International Press Institute and Reporters Without Borders issued a joint statement expressing deep concern about Kochneva’s life and urging the leadership of the Free Syrian Army and of the Syrian Opposition Coalition to ensure that the journalist is safe and set free.
The groups also called on the French, British and US governments, as well as the European Union to work with the Syrian opposition to facilitate her release.
Kochneva, who has reported critically about the Syrian rebels for Russian and Ukrainian news outlets, was captured in the beginning of October near the restive city of Homs. The kidnappers, allegedly members of the Free Syrian Army, threatened to kill her on December 13 if a US$ 50 million ransom is not paid. Continue reading →
This morning, in what presstitutes called the “Battle for Damascus” we learned that a sucide bomber has struck a national security building, killing the Defense Minister Daoud Abdullah Rajha and wounding many other officials. We also noticed that the Sana website is not working and we have many reasons to believe that it was hacked. One the reasons are the threats made by the Anonymous movement, which is as we all can notice, just another tool serving the Empire.
In this article we want to point out the similarities between what’s currently happening in Damascus and what happened in Tripoli. Indeed, the exact same scenario is unfolding before our eyes: Mainstream lies and fake information about the governement forces loosing ground, military operation launched on the ground (the today bombings) and then heavy fightings in the city (that’s what the FSA has been trying to do).The main difference is that NATO is not “directly” involved in the Syrian crisis. We all know, and many reports have proven that NATO has mercenaries on the field. What we mean is that NATO doesn’t have it’s army with all its equipment on the ground as they had in Libya. This is a huge difference. Another huge difference, is that more and more people realize they’re being lied to by MSM and their governement. Hence the propaganda is harder to disseminate in the masses. (Even though a huge majority remains unaware of what’s really unfolding and relies on MSM and their corrupt leaders to “understand” the situation.)
After the complete failure of their latest disinformation attempt (the Wikileaks “Syrian files” scam) NATO/GCC/EU/USrahell are playing their last card. It’s their last move to make Assad fall. And we all hope it will fail. And in order to foil this desperate attempt, Syrian government needs to respond with full force and avoid the FSA terrorists to implement the CIA/USarmy created scenario of Urban guerilla.
The Western mainstream media falsifies the news resorting to euphemisms, half-truths and lies in the best (worst) style of George Orwell’s novel 1984. We all live in the unreal world of “Newspeak” used by the Global Power Elite to control our minds.
Man gets confused when things that happen around him and to him, or which are done in his name, cannot be properly grasped, understood or made sense of. Normally, such confusion leads to inaction. If you’re lost at night in the middle of a forest but you can still see the stars, then a bit of astronomical knowledge will at least quickly tell you which way is north. But if it’s cloudy or you’re ignorant of the constellations in starry heaven, then you might as well light up a fire and do nothing until dawn…. You’re Lost!
Today, mainstream media coverage uses programmed distortion, confusion, even outright lying when its Money Power masters order it to support the “official story” on any major political, economic or financial process. When looked at closely, however, the “official story” of things can be seen to be inaccurate, misleading, often hardly believable if not downright stupid.
Examples of this: Iraq’s inexistent WMD’s leading to the invasion and destruction of that country; global mega-banker bail-outs with taxpayer money; Continue reading →
