Flashback to 2011: Asma Assad: A Rose in the Desert

[ Ed. note – The article below was initially published in Vogue Magazine in early 2011. I am re-posting it here as it provides a striking look back at Syria as it was just prior to the outbreak of the neocon-instigated regime-change war which so devastated the country.

Why Do the Media Ignore the ‘Big Three’? Please Support This Website

It has long been a matter of curiosity for me. Just as the media ignore the overwhelming evidence that 9/11 was a false flag attack–evidence as plain as the hand in front of your face–so, too, do they ignore geoengineering and the dangers posed by vaccines. I have come to think of all three of these stories–9/11…the aerial spraying in the skies…and the link between vaccines and autism…as the “big three.”

The North Korea that Neither Trump nor the Western Media Want You to See

Pyongyang’s Science and Technology Center is an expansive structure heated by geothermal energy, and with drip irrigation-watered live grass on inside walls. Its more than 3,000 computers are solar powered, the library has books in 12 foreign languages, and a long-distance learning program enables people from around the country to study and earn a degree equivalent to that of in-university studies.

“North Korea (the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK) is one of the least understood and most lied about countries on Earth.”

Those are the words of independent journalist Eva Bartlett, who recently made a trip to North Korea and who has posted a very informative, eye-opening article on her experience. The piece includes some truly stunning photos, as well as links to some equally stunning videos that Bartlett has posted on You Tube. Suffice to say, the media’s portrayal of North Korea as a backwards country is utterly misleading. In reality it is anything but backwards.

‘War to Save the Children’ — Talk By Vanessa Beeley

Recently Vanessa Beeley discussed the cynical manipulation of children to promote war in Syria.  Entitled “War to Save the Children,” her presentation was given as part of a London event entitled “Media On Trial.” It is a very important talk, and Beeley does a superb job of underscoring the hypocrisy behind the so-called “humanitarian interventions” so incessantly pursued by those who decidedly are not humane. The irony here of course: that the “war to save the children,” as it were, is in reality a war that kills children.

Held last month at a church in London, the Media On Trial event was organized by Frome Stop War, an independent anti-war group formed in 2011 in response to the bombing of Libya.
