You Gotta Love the <span style="font-style:italic;">far</span> Leftby Robert
Paul Craig Roberts, writing for counterpunch, touches all the bases in grand polemical style. There are the requisite ad hominem attacks against Bush, Cheney, Israel and America’s other “puppets” in the Middle East.
Nothing new there, but I was struck by an interesting bit of hypocrisy. Compare this:
Fox “News,” which in fact is the most thorough-going dispenser of war propaganda since the Nazi Third Reich…
The US breeds terrorism by its 60-year old policy of interfering in the internal affairs of Muslim lands and ruling them through surrogates. The US assaults Muslim sensitivities with the export of “American culture,” a euphemism for sexual promiscuity. The US creates enormous animosity by appearing to exploit Muslim oil wealth and by turning a blind eye while Israel expropriates the West Bank.
If the counterpunch article isn’t a prime example of propaganda,
the word is meaningless.
