You know very well, that my view is universally accepted by the UN, The Coalition and a shitload many more nations on this planet, even Pootin, and that public opinion will concur with me than your sledgehammer approach on Sunnis, their hospitals and schools.

Use your head!


Your masters are not going to be happy with your progress on the forum! :mrgreen:


I don't have masters, unlike you who doesn't even have a brain.

So far, my views are validated by the calibre of those who vote against me. no loss of sleep let me tell you. :wink:

You're a very silly little boy!


Show this to your masters. :mrgreen:

Maybe this is why peoples conceptions of a single event can be so diverse ...... to me, this makes a good deal of sense and what it says is obvious with hindsight of the event but to others it will be seen as rubbish. :roll:

How War Propaganda Keeps on Killing – by Robert Parry

Part of : A key reason why American foreign debacles have been particularly destructive mostly to the countries attacked but also to the United States is that these interventions are always accompanied by major U.S. government investments in propaganda. So, even when officials recognize a misjudgement has been made, the propaganda machinery continues to grind on to prevent a timely reversal.

In effect, Official Washington gets trapped by its own propaganda, which restricts the government’s ability to change direction even when the need for a shift becomes obvious.

After all, once a foreign leader is demonized, it’s hard for a U.S. official to explain that the leader may not be all that bad or is at least better than the likely alternative. So, it’s not just that officials start believing their own propaganda, it’s that the propaganda takes on a life of its own and keeps the failed policy churning forward.

It’s a bit like the old story of the chicken that continues to run around with its head cut off. In the case of the U.S. government, the pro-war or pro-intervention “group think” continues to run amok even after wiser policymakers recognize the imperative to change course.

The reason for that dilemma is that so much money gets spread around to pay for the propaganda and so many careers are tethered to the storyline that it’s easier to let thousands of U.S. soldiers and foreign citizens die than to admit that the policy was built on distortions, propaganda and lies. That would be bad for one’s career.

And, because of the lag time required for contracts to be issued and the money to flow into the propaganda shops, the public case for the policy can outlive the belief that the policy makes sense.

[\quote="miltiades=]As a rule I never disassociate my self from something that I have never been associated with, however since you stupidly brought this matter up on numerous occasions, and so that new members will comprehend how blatantly stupid you are, I shall forego my steadfast principles and deal with this crap that you keep posting.
Pervert, I was born in 1946 , at the start of the struggle against the British occupation on April 1st 1955 I was 8 years 11 months old.

I joined the youth movement of EOKA, called ANE on reaching the age of 12 in 1958, a year later the struggle came to an end. I was 13 years old.

Two years later at the age 15 I emigrated to the UK. A stupid fucking pervert such as you insinuates that I ....run for my life !!
You stupid bastard, fuck off !!
There you are, I have now given your perversion A BOOST.[/quote]



Ah !, but you forgot to mention the 'Sand-Bags' that you filled for the Brits in preparation for the 'Invasion' of Cyprus.

Not being 'Au Fait' with matters of 'Military Consequence' (how could you be ?) you probably do not know that the invasion of Cyprus was planned years in advance and (possibly) many of the 'Sand-Bags' are STILL in place where the pre-determined borders remain to this very day.

You also assisted in the construction of the 'Barracks' (by loading sand on to the 'British Army Lorries') before you 'Hot Footed' it out of Cyprus and made good your escape to the land of the 'Brits' before you were rumbled by the young men who were prepared to stand their ground against their enemies and would be rightly offended by your activities.

Don't forget the 'Kindly English Lady' (you mentioned) who used to ply you with sweets !, was she after information I wonder ?.

There is more yet (for the benefit of new members) you can 'Run' but you can't 'Hide' mate, there are still those who remember the snotty little turncoat who legged it to safety when the going looked like it was going to get a bit tough AND, conveniently set a course which would ensure that 'THIS ONE' would NEVER put his time in for a bit of 'Military Service'.

OH YES, you really are a fine example of a 'Patriotic Cypriot' (My Arse) :lol:

Q. Do you appreciate Miltiades’ polls?

Answers:

1. Nope, they absolutely suck!
2. Yep, can’t get enough of them!
3. I have no opinion because I’m brainless.

I would be inclined to vote for option (2) because they are usually SO important and also educational. 8)

The result of THIS 'POLL' (and the 'POLL' itself an affront to that which a 'Poll' is supposed to achieve.... a balanced view) has produced that which would appear to be a unanimous decision in favour of a biased opinion.

The instigator (whose REAL interest would appear to be an attempt to discredit a fellow member of this forum) has unwittingly contradicted his own avowed principles which he so often claims to be 'Democratic' and on many occasions has published staunch condemnations upon the principles of 'Dictatorships'.

Yet, as stated at the outset of this post, a 'Dictatorial' result is evident.

Therefore, in order to set the balance correct and establish the principles which 'WE' (of the West) abide by in our daily lives, 'I' will cast my vote in favour of the member who is at the brunt of the vindictive attack by the (probably inebriated) raiser of this nonsensical 'POLL',thus restoring a degree of 'Democracy' to it.

Should there be any other member who might wish to share my dismay at the prospect of being subjected to such 'Dictatorship' via the venomous attacks of the aforesaid instigator, please add your support to my own and, by so doing, restore the values which 'WE' respect and at the same time, negate the result as it now stands...........meaningless as it is. :wink:

I'm sure that Paphitis will be .....exhilaratingly content that a man who shares the views of ISIS AND THEIR BARBARIC acts, one such act, well known to the entire world, is the savagery in beheadings, slinging off gays from tall buildings, also shares his views on the Syrian issue.

Back to Paphitis now and his views on the Syrian conflict. Aleppo has almost fallen to the government forces. HIS coalition still in complete lethargy, Russia, who according to him 2 days ago " achieved zero".
The Syrian government, as brutal and dictatorial as it is has prevailed . With more than 400 thousand dead and millions of refugees one can ask reasonably, what on earth did the rebels and those in support of have achieved. In the words of Paphitis , ZERO.

Let us hope that this catastrophic war comes to an end and Syria returns to a " dictatorial peace " the only system that can function in the ME .
