As the war against ISIS gets up to speed, the establishment media is doing its part to create the impression radical jihadists are a domestic threat.
“The voice of an apparent British militant narrating the video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley has triggered renewed questions about why the U.K. is a breeding ground for jihadis,” NBC News reports today.
“At least 400 Britons are among the estimated 2,000 Europeans who are fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), according to Prime Minister David Cameron. And the ease with which Europeans can travel into Syria through Turkey has alarmed intelligence officials in the West.”
This sort of reporting is ignorant or, more likely, engineered to be misleading. NATO and the United States have used Turkey (and Jordan) as a staging area for the proxy war against the al-Assad government in Syria for months.
“All the available evidence indicates that U.S., U.K., Israel, Turkey, France and Saudi Arabia meticulously planned the genocidal covert war on Syria for years before actually launching it in 2011. Right from the beginning, Turkey has been at the epicenter of this war in every possible respect,” writes Turkish researcher Cem Ertür.
The establishment media, particularly its liberal faction, has covered the proxy war staged in Syria in fits and starts, so NBC’s supposed ignorance is disingenuous.
For instance, PBS aired a Frontline segment on “American handlers in Turkey” working with Qatar to train “rebels” how best to engage in war crimes and “finish off soldiers still alive after an ambush,” and the alternative media, including Infowars.com, regularly provides factual information on how the U.S., NATO, Turkey and the Gulf Emirates not only support this proxy war but also covertly fund and train ISIS.
Reality, as usual, is ignored and dismissed by the establishment media as it fulfills its assigned role as a war propaganda division of the U.S. government and the military industrial and intelligence complex.
