As you probably know, a lot of conspiracy web sites and ’2nd amendment’ types in the USA are up in arms (literally?) right now about what they suspect is a covert attempt by the US government (or some section thereof) to rob them of their right to own guns.
The plot, according to the hard-line conspiracy theorists, is that the recent massacre in Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut was in some way ‘staged’ and was, essentially, a means to an end, the end being that the massacre provides plausible just cause for the government, congress etc. to table legislation to abolish, or at least water down, the 2nd amendment right to bear arms.
Why would the government want to disarm the US population? Well, it’s pretty obvious! The only thing stopping the US government from implementing an overt police state in the USA is the 100 million American’s that own guns. That’s the theory anyway. Of course, probably very few gun lovers in the US are hardened conspiracy theorist who think that the government was behind the Sandy Hook school massacre, but you can bet that most of them are conspiratorially-minded enough to believe that the government may try to use the massacre to rob them of their favorite piece of cold hard steel.

It was only a matter of time before NATO’s hired killers were tasked with carrying out a massacre in Syria that NATO stooges at the UN could then attempt to blame on the Syrian government. This time however, the con job isn’t going quite according to plan.
On Monday 28th May 2012 (‘Memorial Day’ in the US, for those who enjoy irony) the world’s public received a full frontal propaganda attack by the Western and other duplicitous media outlets parroting NATO and UN Security Council condemnations of a “massacre by Syrian troops” in the Syrian village of Houla on Friday 25th May.

Maybe I’m jaded, and have allowed the evils of this world to make me too cynical, but in light of US soldiers’ murderous rampage in Afghanistan, where up to 20 of them killed 17 civilians, including 9 children in their beds, I found the following video to be more nauseating than ‘cute’. In fact, if I were to dwell on it, I would probably end up thinking it is one of the most disgusting pieces of propaganda and double standards that I have seen in recent years. ‘Captain America’ indeed.
As a rule, Israel (“that shitty little country” according to a former French diplomat), only wages conventional war as a last resort, and even then, unlike the US of A, it lacks the manpower to invade and occupy foreign nations and must limit itself to blunt force bombing runs (or attacking Palestinian fishermen with gunboats). But the fact is that Israel doesn’t need to expend vast resources on conventional war, because there is another, equally (or perhaps more) effective way for such a pathologically-driven apartheid state to achieve its twisted objectives.
