War Propaganda

The Propagandist magazine news opinion political propagandaThe Propagandist's allies fight on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the fields and in the streets, in the hills and in the parking lots, outside the bar and inside the bar, in the comments sections of the Guardian and the letters to the editor section of the New York Times, from the North Pole to the dark side of the moon, they shall never surrender.

A roundup of our Allies' excellent political propaganda from the front lines:

Note to any Al Qaeda would-be successor to Osama bin Laden: the established life expectancy for someone in your chosen career path is approximately one month.

An overnight attack by an unmanned aircraft killed Ilyas Kashmiri, an Al Qaeda-linked operative blamed for several high-profile attacks in Pakistan and India, local news reports and a statement by his banned militant organization said Saturday.

If borne out, this would be the second major U.S. anti-terrorism coup in quick succession following the killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden early last month by Navy SEALs. Analysts had identified Kashmiri as a possible Bin Laden successor.

Now, who wants the job? Any takers? Sheesh. Don't all put your hands up at once.More >>

The Propagandist magazine news commentary political opinionThe Propagandist salutes our stalwart Allies who give the enemy no quarter and who give prodigous support to local brew pubs. The fog of war is upon us and the news is not all that positive. Yet we must carry on, united until victory.

Speaking of victory, my money is on the Vancouver Canucks to take the Stanley Cup in five games.

Here is the latest propaganda our Allies are broadcasting.

This has been a great month for bagging the bad guys. First, Osama bin Laden gets wacked by the Navy Seals. Now, Fugitive Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic has been arrested in Serbia (in a tellingly less bloody takedown by our European friends). Another genocidal maniac will finally face justice:

He faces charges over the massacre of at least 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995.

Serbian President Boris Tadic said the process to extradite the former Bosnian Serb army chief to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague was under way.

It is not quite the end for this sad chapter of history. We are still dealing with the consequences of the civil war that took place in the former Yugoslavia.More >>

Rumors and innuendo are flying fast and furious about the whereabouts (Pakistan? Afghanistan?), status (alive or dead) and connections with the ISI (close friend or public enemy number one) of Taliban chief Mullah Omar. For our part, we think it would be absolutely swell if his bullet-ridden carcass was discovered floating in the river. Anyway, here is the latest scuttlebutt:

In light of the fantastic news that the International Criminal Court is seeking an arrest warrant for Libyan dictator-cum-butcher Muammar al-Gadhaffi, it’s worth taking some time out to recognize the little people -- in this case, the people who are so little that they perversely declared the NATO intervention in Libya to enforce the no-fly zone a “crime against humanity”.

That would be none other than, and its editor, Paul W Kincaid.

On March 24, 2011, PressCORE published a petition calling for the leaders of the US, French, British, and Canadian governments to be indicted for “crimes against humanity and war crimes”.

The petition reads:

“We the undersigned demand the immediate cessation of all unlawful armed attacks against the territorial integrity and political independence of Libya and that indictments be filed immediately against the above named political leaders of France, the US, the UK, and Canada for:

1. Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of a crime against peace

2. Planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace

3. War crimes

4. Crimes against humanity”

Shocker! Iran and North Korea are trading nuclear and missile technology in violation of United Nations resolutions. Even more surprising: China, that rising power that some nations regard as a positive counterweight to the West, is recklessly facilitating these activities.

In other totally surprising news, scientists have learned that the Sun rises in the East, smoking cigarettes causes lung cancer and dogs like to have their bellies rubbed.

They say "youth is wasted on the young." If you're a jihadist recruiter in Afghanistan's hinterland, you may not have George Bernard Shaw's original intent in mind, though. 

The Taliban are recruiting children as young as nine years old to conduct suicide bomb attacks on coalition troops. Of course, this level of depravity by the enemy is nothing new. Perhaps you recall these atrocities:

  • The Talban rape tapes. "He arrived in each village with Siraj Haqqani’s uncle, Ibrahim, and Siraj’s cousin, Ishak, in tow.  With them, the Haqqanis brought along their own very special tools of terror – a video camera and an eye for human flesh.  You see, with Haqqani healthcare, you not only received a medical exam, if you were an attractive young girl, you also got a screen test.  And heaven forbid you passed."
  • The Taliban's torturers. "Basically any form of pleasure was outlawed," Mr Hassani said, "and if we found people doing any of these things we would beat them with staves soaked in water - like a knife cutting through meat - until the room ran with their blood or their

What a fabulous coincidence! Still reeling from the humiliation of the Osama bin Laden raid (and its implications for any last shred of credibility for Pakistan as an "ally" in the war on terror), the Pakistani ISI has announced they have good information on the whereabouts of Taliban head honcho Mullah Omar.

Conveniently, the ISI seems to think the terrorist leader is on Pakistani soil, in or around Quetta, the largest city in Balochistan province (How nice of them to reveal the timing and location of this manhunt operation ahead of time, just to give their quarry a running head start).

Coincidentally, there is a significant US and coalition forces military presence there to hinder Taliban infiltration from Pakistan into Afghanistan.

If I were conspiratorial-minded, I might think the ISI had a sneaky plan ready to go.

First, wander over to Mullah Omar's address, which has actually been known to you for a number of years. Put a bullet through the old man's skull so he can't spill any secrets. Next, dump the body in the middle of a short but dramatic staged firefight just a few...More >>
