It's over. Or so it seems.
Let's hope it stays that way.

In the meantime, the media (...and why should that surprise anyone) should by rights be asked a few dumb questions.

I just came across this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baOIwiGCDAY

(Still haven't got a clue about embedding videos; in any case- be quick about it. Youtube tends to pull things quickly these days)

So- here's the dumb questions.

Is there any particular reason as to why CNN seems fit to show footage of the terrible destruction of Gori- which then turns out to be footage of the terrible destruction in Tskhinvali...?

Is it just me, or do those so-called journalists not even switch on their brains anymore when the consequences may include a war with a nuclear armed nation...?

Are these people just plain insane...?

Or is it just me?

I've posted a topic here: http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum//index....showtopic=14191

It's about CNN online poll with 261 000+ respondents - showing that at least 92% of those watching CNN webpages think the Russian operations are justifiable as peacekeeping ones.

CNN apparently quickly splashed the poll into memoryhole.

Yes- that's how I found the video.
It seems as if there was an organised media-campaign in order to influence public opinion; perhaps it backfired.
Interestingly, most videos at youtube relating to the destruction of Tskhinvali have already dissappeared.
There are plenty of pro-Georgian ones, though.

This one should be extremely interesting.
Not to say extremely important...
Save this to your harddrive lest it gets lost.
It's an indictment of the way the media have handled this...

Guys- Youtube seems to have a gatekeeper now.
All four videos posted above are already gone; as are most videos relating to the destruction of Tskhinvali. Hardly a coincidence, especially considering that a lot of this material comes from Russian TV-stations and can hardly be covered by US-copyright law. That video about Joe Mestas was posted about a half dozen times; each time it gets pulled.
I've saved it to my harddrive, but I'm wondering what kind of alternative to youtube exists.
Mr. Mestas was completely ignored by the western media as a whole.
Considering that he is a US-eyewitness, there is no normal explanation for that:
His statements are evidently blocked throughout the western world.
Not one newspaper, not one TV-station even mentions him.
(At least I haven't been able to find anything so far.)
If anyone needs proof that the media is controlled- not just in the US, but also in Europe- then this is it:
It's a screaming indictment.

I just found this video supposedly showing Mr. Mestas, adressing "The president, members of the government, and good people of South Ossetia"...

In ENGLISH.

He can speak Russian fluently...

Some of the commentators underneath have already dubbed him a "Traitor".
I'd call that a "Lookalike".
Oh, Brother...
