America’s voters don’t want to acknowledge that they were fooled, by lying Presidents and by their stenographic ‘free press’ transmitting Governmental lies — they were thus deceived into invading and destroying Iraq in 2003, and Libya in 2011-, and Syria in 2011-. U.S. is globally the most frequently mentioned nation as being “the greatest threat to peace in the world today.” The biggest threat to peace isn’t Iran, and isn’t Russia, and isn’t China, and isn’t Venezuela, but it is, in fact, their actually aggressive enemy, the United States of America, which wants to dictate to them all — this dictatorship demands to impose its ‘democracy’ throughout the world, as it has tried to do in hundreds of coups and invasions. It destroyed Iran’s democracy in 1953. It destroyed Guatemala’s democracy in 1954. It destroyed Chile’s democracy in 1973. And there are many other such instances, less well-known — including many even after the so-called ‘ideological’ Cold War ended in 1991. But the American people don’t want to know, and don’t even care, about the ugliness of the Government that they allegedly ‘elect’ (but really do not — and they don’t want to know that, either). Americans aren’t physical slaves, but mental slaves — they don’t even want to know the reality, of the regime that rules them.
Americans prefer to remain deceived, and to blame-the-victims — Iran, and Russia, and China, and Venezuela, etc. — even as our Government imposes entirely unjustified and unjustifiable strangulating economic blockades (“sanctions”) against countries that America’s voracious and vicious megacorporate aristocracy (America’s billionaires) want to control so as for those lands to become additional parts of the U.S. regime’s global dictatorship […]
Since the fairness doctrine ended, it is full-bore propaganda from american network and cable tv. All lies, brainwashing and propaganda It was not that good, when they had the fairness doctrine
Indeed, Gloria. It makes me very sad sometimes to think how susceptible Americans are to this cunning propaganda.
I do believe Americans are willing to allow themselves to be distracted by irrelevancies. Saudi Arabia and Israel may be aligned in wanting the US to do their dirty work for them, but I contend Israel provides the brains behind the operation. Israel controls American media directly and indirectly. It has a powerful hold on Donald Trump and his administration.
Too true, Katherine, the AIPAC lobby has enormous control over Congress and the media. I think it works both ways, though. For decades now, one of the biggest US fears was that Arabs would unite into a single nation and cut off US oil supplies. It has served their interests well to have a nuclear armed pro-Western state sowing chaos in the Middle East.
