What I am seeing in the US mass media is a simplistic and systematic demonization of Pakistan. I could site many examples, but all one has to do is look at the New York Times. Here’s how it works. Al Qaeda is evil. Al Qaeda is gaining strength in Pakistan. Therefore, Pakistan is evil.
The New York Times has also demonized Russia in its recent conflict with Georgia. When, if fact, it was Bush/Saakashvilli, working under the diversion of the opening of the Olympic games, attacked a people who are for all intents and purposes, Russian! Georgia will be in NATO to serve evil doctrine of Bush, it is a route to Caspian sea. And it’s not really Bush, per say. Bush is the current puppet. The problem is corporate fascism. Corporations rule the world and the world’s governments. Unfortunately, Barack Obama cannot change that. In fact, he’ll most likely be another puppet (nicer, more friendly than Bush, but still a puppet).
This is depressing. Nothing seems to have changed here in the US. True, most American’s no longer favor the war in Iraq, yet most Americans are still ridiculously ignorant about what is going on in the world. The US, corporate-profit-driven-mass-media, is to blame. It’s a huge and monstrous propaganda machine.
