D for Double standards

Neil Clark from The Guardian (UK):

Just imagine…

If in 2003, Russia and its closest allies had launched a full-scale military invasion of an oil-rich country in the Middle East, having claimed that that country possessed WMDs (weapons of mass distraction) which threatened the world and that afterwards no WMDs were ever found.

Here’s a good trick to see through the traps and lies: switch places and check whther you would make the same judgement.

Note that the link to rt.com didn’t open for me directly (wonder why is it in a “democratic” Canada with “freedom of speech”), I had to use public proxy to get to the article. You can also use a plugin for your browser to do this.

    Thank’s, that’s the nice method. The brilliant picture of whole mechanic of our world is in “S.N.U.F.F” by Viktor Pelevin

  2. Agree to that! S.N.U.F.F. has a good description of how wars are created by mass media.
