Jimmy Dore - Bombshell: Professor Stuns MSNBC Panel On Syria

And this is very is even better. Boy, listen to this Professor Jeffrey Sachs talk, no messing here, he says the CIA and Saudi Arabia went into Syria to destabilise the country to get rid of Assad. That's the US messing in another countries politics to change a leader - that's serious.

There's a Wikipedia entry on it.

MI6, too.

It's all over the Internet.

US journalism is in the toilet.

Whoops. Reminds me of when Colbert roasted Bush at the correspondents dinner. Somebody didn't do their homework.

The information / propaganda divide seems to be largely generational. Older people get their "news" from "trusted" sources like NYT and CNN while younger people get information from a variety of sources on the web.

And that would be?

The only relevant fact of which I am aware is that Sachs was one of the geniuses that almost drove Russia to failure after the collapse of the Soviet Union with bonkers Western economic ideas that the Russians were foolish enough to adopt.

Yes...

Sachs isn’t approaching this here due to some simpleton anti war bias like you guys...

He probably agrees with Trump that this US policy there that Trump inherited from the Bush2/Obama people isn’t in any self respecting neoliberal’s best interest ...

Matt Franko said...

Ultimately as a neoliberal you want to get Putin out and get back to business .... escalation in Syria makes that LESS likely...

"simpleton anti war bias"

Unless your nuanced pro war bias is "we've got the biggest guns and can do whatever we like" (in which case you're a dangerous nutbag), you can't name one moral, rational or logical standard for military intervention that isn't a double standard or hasn't been violated 10 times over by the US and their lackeys. Maybe our "simpleton anti war bias" is a simple intolerance for bullshit lying.

Why are the lies necessary? They know the average Joe-citizen won't stand for it.
