Every time I read a BBC news piece about events in Syria it invariably includes the following phrase (emphasized):
“Troops are shelling intensively parts of the Syrian city of Homs, activists say, a day after the UN General Assembly called for an end to violence.” — ‘Syrian city shelled after UN vote’, BBC News, 17 February 2012
Not much reported in the MSM was that Bolivia, Belarus, Ecuador, Iran, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, the DPRK, and Cuba, joined with Russia and China in voting down on the Saudi penned UN General Assembly resolution. The MSM seems to be attempting at a worldwide brainwashing job into getting everyone into thinking that — only tinfoil hat wearers plus Russia and China would be so foolhardy — as to oppose the GCC, NATO, the Arab League, and the illustrious and all-powerful West, aka the “international community”. And as their typical one-sided reporting effort has, no doubt, cowed many otherwise good, innocent, and well-meaning people into believing.
