How Putin and Russia must consider Western propaganda

How Putin and Russia must consider Western propaganda | Global politics | Scoop.it
Vladimir Putin believes in rationality and in humanism and he is wrong. Vladimir Putin and Russia are demonized by the most inept and ruthless propaganda in years. Yet this propaganda is one century old; it began in 1914, but the...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Vladimir Putin believes in rationality and in humanism and he is wrong. For western bourgeois mobs are used to believe not in truth but only in propaganda. Never underestimate the power of propaganda. With 2.3 millions of convicts, with an astronomical debt, with Guantanamo and so many wars and bombings, with the most unequal social system in the developed world, with the Ferguson fury, America is still the dreamland and the model of the global idiot. This is the brilliant result of ubiquitous propaganda

Suspicions run deep in iraq that CIA and the Islamic State are united

Suspicions run deep in iraq that CIA and the Islamic State are united | Global politics | Scoop.it
BAGHDAD — The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the CIA is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking.

Nothing will stop Isis except a Syrian truce

Nothing will stop Isis except a Syrian truce | Global politics | Scoop.it
If the United States and its allies want to combat the Islamic State jihadists (IS, formerly known as Isis) successfully, they should arrange a ceasefire between the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the non-IS Syrian opposition. Neither the Syrian army nor the “moderate” Syrian rebels are strong enough to stop IS if they are fighting on two fronts at the same time, going by the outcome of recent battles. A truce between the two main enemies of IS in Syria would be just that, and wo
Enrique Ferro's insight:

A bit difficult, since the Obama-backed Free Syrian Army, Al Nusra Front, and ISIS have paired together in order to fight the Syrian Assad regime. See http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/09/obama-administration-is-paying-tens-of-millions-in-monthly-salaries-to-syrian-rebels/
