FAKE ON TV
7 June Moscow clearly indicated to NATO that any military intervention in Syria without a UN mandate would be considered as casus belli (a legal term meaning "cause for war". - Ed.). To confirm the seriousness said, the strategic Missile forces conducted a test firing: fired missiles "Topol" from the Astrakhan region and the "Bulava" from the submarine in the White sea. Residents of Armenia and Israel saw the characteristic tail of the rocket in the sky and decided that it was flying unidentified flying object (details here).
Washington immediately responded to the incident that was sent to the Kremlin adviser of the US state Department on issues of transition in Syria Frederic Hof, and adopted the proposal of Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the peacekeeping conference on Syria with the participation of neighboring States and interested regional and global powers.
But as it turned out, that was just a cover forced the redeployment of forces - while the American representative smiled his interlocutors, the White house gave the green light for the RAID, which had been building up for several months. After a few days (likely by June 15) those Syrians who want to watch their national TV stations will see them is a program of the CIA - staged shots with government troops atrocities", "massacres against peaceful protesters", footage of "the resignation of the generals and the government", the "flight of Bashar al-Assad".
All this will be followed by a meeting of the opposition in the squares of major cities, after which the leaders of the opposition will enter the presidential Palace. Operation of disinformation will lead from Washington samovarnika personally to the US President for national security Affairs Ben Rhodes and the purpose of this production is the demoralization of the Syrians. It is easier to organize a coup, which will enable NATO to defeat Syria, not engaging in confrontation with Russia and China and violating international law.
DECORATIONS MADE OF PLYWOOD
To turn the operation of misinformation, the League of Arab States demanded that the satellite operators Arabsat and Nilesat to stop the retransmission of Syrian television channels, both private and public (Syria TV, Al-Ekbariya, Ad-Dounia, Cham TV, etc.). There is a precedent - the League has blocked the broadcast of the Libyan government channels. In Syria there are no cable networks, where all TV channels are caught by satellites. Disabling them does not lead to the fact that TV screens will go off. The League requirement is only the tip of the iceberg. According to available information, this week were conducted at least three international meetings where they discussed the coordination of the operation of disinformation. The first two meetings were purely technical and were held in Doha (Qatar), the third, political, took place in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
The first meeting brought together specialists in the psychological warfare, embedded on channels Al-Arabiya, Al-Jazeera, BBC, CNN, Fox, France 24, Future TV, MTV. It is known that since 1998, the officers of the US army from United States Army Psychological Operations Unit (PSYOP) have been officially employed by CNN. Then they were introduced to the staff and other most popular TV channels, which began to spread knowingly false information that is tailored by employees of Ben Rhodes.
To give fake authenticity they can be relayed from channel to channel. This time the members of the group Rhodes found it necessary to use to spread disinformation, not only the CIA channels, which broadcasts in Syria and Lebanon channels, partially sponsored by the CIA (Barada, Future TV, MTV, Orient News, Syria Chaab, Syria Alghad) but also about forty religious media Wahhabi, where very soon will be calls for violence against civilians on religious grounds in the style of "Christians to Beirut, alawites - to the grave!" (the ruling elite in Syria is traditionally composed of alawites. - Ed.). The second meeting brought together engineers and Directors whose task is the creation of game scenes in the scenery. Staged scenes are inserted into real video. In Saudi Arabia for several weeks, there is a construction of plywood scenery of two presidential palaces and Central squares of Damascus, and HOMS Alepa. This type of pavilions is already in Doha, but not enough of them. The third meeting brought together the General James Smith, U.S. Ambassador, representative of great Britain and a former Saudi Ambassador in Washington Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, whom Bush Sr. has represented his adopted son so often that American Newspapers dubbed him Bandar Bush. The task of these people - coordination, media and performances “free Syrian army”, the bulk of which consists of mercenaries of Prince Bandar.
This operation involves two simultaneous actions: enable flow of false information combined with the technical inability in any way to respond to it. Technology disabling of satellite TV channels to ensure the success of military action was used before. So under the pressure of tel Aviv, the U.S. and the European Union has blocked the broadcasting of the Lebanese, Palestinian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian TV channels, while there is no censorship in relation to channels from other countries was never carried out.
AS IT DID BEFORE
Stream fake information is not news, but over the last decade was overcome 4 an important milestone in the case of agitprop:
in 1994, a pop music radio station Radio libre des Mille Collines (RTML) has sounded the call to the Rwandan genocide, when the air was thrown cry "kill the bastards";
in 2001, NATO used the media to interpret in a proper perspective the events of 11 September and to justify the invasion of Afghanistan, and two years later - in Iraq. All the same Ben Rhodes made then on behalf of the Bush administration, the report of the attack; in 2002, the CIA used 5 TV channels Televen, Globovision, Meridiano, ValeTV and CMT to give volume and scale of protest demonstrations in Venezuela and attempt to overthrow the recently elected President Hugo Chavez. But then it didn't work: on the streets, millions of supporters of Chavez;
in 2011, on the eve of the battle for Tripoli, NATO made a feature story about the Libyan rebels flooded the Central square of the capital, while in reality they were only on the approaches to the city. Looking at the plot, the civilian population decided that the battle was lost, and ceased resistance. Spreading disinformation channels Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya. That is, media has long ceased to be witnesses and participants of the war - they became weapons.
* * * This situation violates basic principles of international law, beginning with article 19 of the universal Declaration of human rights, where we are talking about the right "to receive and impart any means regardless of borders, information and ideas". Disturbed and UN General Assembly Resolution, adopted after the Second world war to prevent future wars. We are talking about articles 110, 381 and 819, which prohibits "create barriers to the free exchange of information and opinions" (to the question about turning off Syrian TV channels) and condemning "propaganda, threatening peace and provoking an escalation of aggression". From the point of view of law, war propaganda is a crime against the peace, and the most serious, because that's what makes war possible war crimes and genocide.
