SPOT THE COUNTRY
Due to brainwashing having silently pervaded society much potential unrest among the populace has been calmed if only temporarily. Confusion within the bowels of the publicly paid-for national broadcaster has meant that the average citizen has little idea what’s being done in his/her name.
Iran? Syria? Saudi Arabia? Libya?
Try again –
The BBC has an agenda which prevents it from mentioning anything which may make people conclude that Tony Blair was not such a bad guy. For instance the behaviour of the present coalition government in Libya in comparison with that of Blair over Iraq. Cameron’s government is presently doing what the BBC accuses Blair of – acting outwith a UN mandate.
How else does one explain why the BBC – which has BY FAR the largest reach of any media outlet – far more than Murdoch – still has not told us what we can find out via the Sydney Morning Herald
“…soldiers from 22 SAS Regiment began guiding rebel soldiers after being ordered in by the Prime Minister, David Cameron. For the first time, defence sources have confirmed the SAS has been in Libya for several weeks, and played a key role in co-ordinating the battle for Tripoli.”
Or via the Times of India
“Camouflaged in Arab attire and carrying weapons similar to rebels, the SAS have been ordered to switch their focus on the search for Gaddafi, on the run since his fortified headquarters was captured on Tuesday, Telegraph reported quoting British Defence officials.”
And even from over at CNN
It has plenty of coverage at its website but still nothing on this matter at the blessed/anti-Blair/anti-Iraq war/anti-intervention aka ever so high falutin’/”principled”/#unbiased” BBC.
Not that ALL British media outlets have omitted to tell us what they know about breaking the UN resolution 1973, though of course they never manage to utter those “breaking news” words. For instance The Telegraph has the story and a video here
Even the Guardian’s anti-Blair/anti-Iraq war Richard Norton Taylor proudly displays (not brainwashing, of course) the SAS “Who Dare Wins” logo. He has, as usual, his version of the troof – ” SAS troopers help co-ordinate rebels” –
“They returned to Libya in February this year, even before the UN mandate urging states to protect civilians from Gaddafi’s forces.”
Norton-Taylor reminds us in a short (for him!) article that SAS soldiers were in Libya even before the recent unrest had really got underway and gently says “a number of SAS soldiers are now advising the rebels as they storm the capital, Tripoli.”
Channel 4 – Libya campaign initially a mess, Whitehall source –
A senior Whitehall official told Channel 4 News just a few weeks ago that the Libya campaign was initially a “mess” and added that the pace of change recently had taken some governments by surprise.
According to one recent intelligence assessment it was believed Gaddafi would still be in power in Tripoli in September, choosing between rival peace initiatives brokered by the African Union amongst others.
In March the Mirror said that “hundreds of troops” had been operating in Libya for three weeks.
“Hundreds of British SAS soldiers have been operating with rebel groups inside Libya for three weeks, the Sunday Mirror can reveal today.
Two special forces units, nicknamed “Smash” teams for their destructive ability, are hunting Colonel Gaddafi’s long-range surface-to-air missile systems, which could launch attacks on jets or commercial airliners.
The crack troops have been racing against time to pinpoint the Libyan Army’s most potent strategic weapon, the Russian-made SAM 5 missile systems. Despite their age, the systems have a range of more than 200 miles and the capability to hit targets across the Mediterranean.
The two SAS units, joined by signallers, engineers and medics, are simultaneously establishing positions on the ground in case any Western jets are downed during an air attack.”

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)
