A propos nothing in particular except (possibly)
lying dissembling confusion by the BBC as here at previous post, comes this video. It purports to show huge crowds in Green Square, Libya though the BBC announcers or editor should have known, one would have thought, that it was filmed in India!
Libya / Incredible media lies – BBC shows “Green Square” in INDIA, 24 August 2011
Are the BBC news department about to apologise for showing this video and making it out to be Tripoli? What do you think?
More Independent (anti-Iraq war/pro Lib Dem) press mind-control
Mandelson, saying he had “no regrets whatsoever” about Mr Blair’s decision to offer his “hand of friendship” to Colonel Gaddafi in his Bedouin tent outside Tripoli seven years ago, also dismissed as “absolute rubbish” claims that the motive was to secure access to Libya’s oil and gas reserves for British firms, saying the aim was to halt terrorism and prevent a dangerous dictator developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
Lord Mandelson said: “We were right at the time to bring Gaddafi in from the cold to deal with his sponsorship of terror and his weapons of mass destruction. That is what it was about.”
Lord Mandelson argued that the current situation in Libya could be much more dangerous if Col Gaddafi had access to WMDs. “If this rebellion had taken place and he was still in possession of his weapons, still able to organise terror, he would have had no hesitation in doing so. We would be in a much worse position if Mr Blair did not do what he did.”
The former Cabinet minister accused Mr Cameron of using events in Libya to try to “discredit” Mr Blair but said: “That’s just politics. It’s neither fair nor justified… Just as it is right to support the rebels now, it was right then to engage Gaddafi in the way that we did.”
And the mind-control?
It’s in the Independent’s choice headline – ‘Labour failed to use influence over Libya admits Mandelson’
Just so you know.

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)
