North Koreans don’t believe in unicorns. Do you believe in the BBC?
Did anyone see the feeble little piss-take Ian Hislop and co did last week on Have I Got News For You about gullible north Koreans supposedly believing in unicorns?
The real story turns out to be that archaeologists from the DPRK have found some interesting evidence that an important ancient city that features in folk legends might have been situated close to the present day Pyongyang.
Legend has it that in ancient times a famous king founded the city. The ‘unicorn’ just comes into it as a mistranslation of a Korean word denoting a mythical beast on which the king was supposed to ride.
Turning this straightforward story about an archaeological dig into a slander about thick Koreans swallowing commie lies may pass for cutting edge satire at the BBC but will only fool the terminally credulous.
Are thick Brits now to be pilloried for believing in giants (who else would inhabit the Giants’ Causeway?), in dragons (what else did St George fight?), or in (most far-fetched yet) the honesty and objectivity of the BBC lie machine?

Syrian government to use chemical weapons? B*llocks!

image

Anyone with a fleeting interest in foreign affairs could be forgiven this week for experiencing déjà vu as the United States, without a trace of evidence, accused the Syrian government of preparing to use chemical weapons on its people. In rhetoric that echoed the false claims of Iraqi WMDs last decade, western leaders intensified their plans for military intervention by claiming Damascus has started “potential chemical weapon preparation”…

Yet, whilst the majority of western media outlets have repeated these unsubstantiated claims, as they so faithfully did against Iraq in 2003, a Pentagon official has confirmed that “there is no evidence yet that the Syrian military has actually begun the process of mixing precursor chemicals to produce deadly Sarin nerve gas”. (‘No evidence Syria mixing chemical agents’, Pentagon official says, NBC News, 4 November 2012). Instead, we’re being asked to trust the intelligence agencies of US imperialism, who claim to have detected increased movement around ‘suspected weapons sites’…

The government of Bashar al-Assad has survived not because of its possession of chemical weapons, nor out of fear as western commentators, and even socialists, foolishly assert, but because it retains the overwhelming support of the Syrian people: a population that has successfully resisted US imperialism and zionism for generations.

Hands Off Syria! 

Faced with the determined stance of the Syrian masses and their leadership, and the principled position of Iran, Russia and China, imperialism has dusted off its filthy manual of proxy war.

Libya - A Media War

A brief introduction to some facts about the war in Libya is followed by media worker Joti Brar’s remarks on the role of the press in aiding and abetting imperialism’s unjust wars, concentrating on the example of Libya.Joti goes on to demonstrate that journalists playing an active and knowing part in the generation of war propaganda are not only central to the entire conduct of these modern day colonial wars, but are, for that very reason, guilty of war crimes.

This video is a tribute to Brother Muammar Gaddafi (Arabic: مُعَمَّر القَذَّافِي‎ Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī; born in June 1942), who at a young age led the revolution to overthrow Libya’s ruling feudal monarch and pawn of US and Italian imperialism, King Idris.

At the head of the Libyan Arab Socialist Jamahiriya, he led his nation on a massive program of social, technical, and cultural development. It is no exaggeration to talk of Gaddafi’s Libya as a renaissance period for the people of this beautiful and cultured North African country. The Libyan people, in the 42 years of his leadership, rose from being literally the poorest on earth, to the wealthiest and most egalitarian in Africa.

As a result of his consistent anti-imperialist stance, NATO imperialism took the opportunity presented by real popular upheaval in Libya’s neighboring countries (the 2011 ‘Arab spring’ uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt) to launch a vicious and genocidal war to topple his government, and rob the Libyan people of their social gains, their real diplomatic and anti-imperialist influence and - of course — their mineral resources.

After a brutal 7 months of carpet bombing, day and night, which claimed the lives of 100,000 civilians, systematically targeted civilian infrastructure and destroyed entire cities, NATO’s paid agents were directed to corner the heroic anti-imperialist leader of the resistance, and Lynched him cruelly and publically on 20 October 2011.

Contrary to the vile assertions of the western media, He faced his executioners, vile mercenaries and unthinking tools of NATO imperialism as the proud defender of independent ant free Libya. He dies a heroes death, in battle, facing his enemies with steely resolve, and refusing to desert his post, his country and his people at the hour of greatest need.
