“The effective propagandist must be a master of the art of speech, of writing, of journalism, of the poster and of the leaflet. He must have the gift to use the major methods of influencing public opinion such as the press, film and radio to serve his ideas and goals, above all in an age of advancing technology.” Josef Goebbles
There is overwhelming evidence that there are war criminals that plotted and planned a number of wars in various countries.  Yet, you won’t hear or see most of the corporate controlled media exposing the criminality of the powerful war perverts in our midst, or the victims of the war criminals and their war business.  Syria is just one of example of many countries, where the media are protecting the criminal actions of governments and their treacherous “allies” that are consorting with terrorists. Therefore, kudos must go the writer mentioned below and the link to his article. “The media are misleading the public on Syria”
“Washington-based reporters tell us that one potent force in Syria, al-Nusra, is made up of ‘rebels’ or ‘moderates,’ not that it is the local al-Qaeda franchise. Saudi Arabia is portrayed as aiding freedom fighters when in fact it is a prime sponsor of ISIS. Turkey has for years been running a ‘rat line’ for foreign fighters wanting to join terror groups in Syria, but because the United States wants to stay on Turkey’s good side, we hear little about it. Nor are we often reminded that although we want to support the secular and battle-hardened Kurds, Turkey wants to kill them. Everything Russia and Iran do in Syria is described as negative and destabilizing, simply because it is they who are doing it — and because that is the official line in Washington.” Stephen Kinzer, February 18, 2016, Boston Globe.
And there is more information below that “Washington” is arming and training “terrorists.”
An article headlined: ‘American military ops against Al-Nusra incongruous as US assists jihadists’ RT October 21, 2016. Here are some excerpts from the article:
“The US State Department blaming Russia for the situation in Syria makes no sense, as they have their own trainers on the ground working with jihadist Salafi groups which include Al-Nusra fighters, former Pentagon official Michael Maloof told RT.”...
RT: The US acknowledges that Al-Nusra is a terrorist group, and yet does not consider defeating it a priority. What do you make of this?
“Michael Maloof: It is not surprising, simply because we’re providing arms to them indirectly through their sponsors, namely Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The problem is that we have troops on the ground who are helping to train elements such as Al-Nusra and other jihadi Salafist groups. It is not just me saying that. This actually was said by a unit commander of Al-Nusra – his name is Abu Abdul 'Aziz. He basically admitted that US arms are coming into Syria, they are coming indirectly, it is not being sent directly from the US. But US forces are training and assisting some of those forces namely Al-Nusra. So it would be incongruous for the US to be bombing Al-Nusra, when we have our own trainers on the ground working with many of these fighters....”
And another article in “RT,” headlined:
“Terrorists & their paymasters hold Aleppo civilians as human hostages – VA senator”
Published time: 17 Oct, 2016 03:56Edited time: 17 Oct, 2016 04:34
“The US and its allies could order their terrorist proxies in Aleppo to allow civilians to leave, but instead use them as hostages to escalate anti-Russia rhetoric in a bid to prevent the fall of the rebel stronghold, Virginia Senator Richard Black told RT.
The American Senator went on to say:
“Who pays ISIS, who pays Al-Qaeda in East Aleppo? They are paid for by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, by the United States, by NATO. These are the people that fund these terrorists,...”
And still more info below:
“The fact can't be refuted: ISIS was born of Western intervention in Iraq and covert action in Syria...This attack on Syria, under the guise of striking ISIS, is by definition, a war of aggression. It is a violation of international law. It could lead to crimes against humanity and the deaths of untold numbers of innocent civilians. No amount of public relations or smooth talking can change that. And yes, members of this Democratic administration, including the president who executed this policy, must be held accountable by the International Criminal Court and by the American people, who he serves. “
“Known and documented, Saudi Arabia has played a key strategic role in promoting and financing terrorism on behalf of Washington. Moreover, Saudi weapons purchases from the US and Canada are also being used to equip and arm various ‘opposition’ rebel groups in Syria including the ISIL and Al Nusrah.” Prof, Michel Chossudofsky, Global Research, March 02, 2016

One would think that the information from a former “Pentagon official” and a “Virginia senator”in the RT articles above, would be all over the corporate media. But no, and as I mentioned earlier, despite the overwhelming evidence that wars were plotted and planned,  and that the West and its “allies” are in bed with the terrorists they are supposed to be fighting, the media appear to be protecting our home grown war criminals.  I believe there is treacherous and treasonous behaviour by those in positions of power, and the media is dumb or devious, in, either its ignorance or complicity. I believe not only is the system hellishly “rigged,” but it is rotten to the core. Yet, our “leaders” talk about the “rule of law.” And we are supposed to be, “The Good Guys,”  Therefore, based on multiple sources of evidence, I ask: “Are the Media Propaganda Pushers for the War Criminals”?
“We have to ask ourselves how it can be that the world’s worse criminals—people responsible for the death and displacement of millions of peoples—occupy high office...?” Paul Craig Roberts. The Unz Review, March 9, 2016.
