I Am Shocked I Tell You, Shocked

I Am Shocked I Tell You, Shocked

As so Americans woke up to their media telling them to be shocked, in the most hypocritical and self-righteous manner yet this month. Yes, the US' hypocrisy never seems to disappoint or go away.

The issue today? Well, seems that the Chinese PLA (People's Liberation Army) put out a first person shooter game (that's where you run around looking through the eyes of a character and shoot things/people) called Glorious Mission and the enemy getting shot are...gasp...US troops.

Yes, one may say that such a thing is in bad taste, that is if one was anyone but the US. But considering the US Army put out its own shooter, some four years or so ago America's Army where American teens, boozed up on caffeine drinks and nacho chips, can shoot generic Slavs (read Russians and Serbs), generic Asians (read Chinese) or some other generic group, as well as get the graphic novels (read comic books, but for a half educated generation that sounds to low, we'll elevate it graphic novel to make it sound like actual literature), that is rather hypocritical.

But as if that stops there. Nay, yearly, US media published games and movies showing US "heroes" gunning down dozens of those evil Russians, Serbs, other generic Slavs, Germans, Arabs, Japanese, Chinese and whom ever else they can fit in the roll of pure evil. Never mind the mindless wars the US is in, that the American Left cheers and the American Right, the "conservatives" also cheer, but just from their couches while watching it on Fox. Only the small percentage of what is called the Palo Conservatives, see all of this for what it is and they are treated like some archaic bunch of special ed kids.

Take for example, the highly popular US games Call of Duty 4, or Command & Conquer or, well here's just a short list of games, and never mind the movies, that since 2000 were published by the US companies and the enemies involved:

I will not even go into all the movies and books, that would take another week to list.

The American media, ever the mouth piece of absolute blind hypocrisy is having a field day. Rather then report on the collapsing US economy or the waves of SWAT team killings and gross disrespect for their own constitution by the government, they are complaining about how the victims of US media have made the US their virtual victim.

CNN: Although the game has received limited coverage in China, it has generated waves in the United States, reports BehindTheWall, not for its graphics or the fact that it brings the Chinese army up to speed, but for the fact that American soldiers are the main adversary.

“[Many people's] concern is that the game, which was ostensibly developed as a training tool for the PLA, makes American soldiers and equipment the enemy combatant and could lead young, impressionable trainees to believe that the United States is the enemy,” writes Ed Flanagan.

Again, when dealing with the West, particularly the Anglo West, one need not turn over many stones to find the odor of hypocrisy waffing up.

You missed Ghost Recon 2000/1 (Russia) which eerily predicted the event to the month and year of the Georgian war, Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Russia, China) and the forthcoming Ghost Recon Future Soldier (Russia).

As for Modern Warfare the locations maybe in Brazil/Afghanistan/Russia but the villain is the ultra-nationalist Russian.

In the new FPS modern warfare games Russian Ultra-nationalists are always the bad guys.

The main villain in games, movies and TV are always Serbs, Russians and Chinese.

As for Germans and others being the villains they are only confined to WW2 era games which Japanese are hardly ever portrayed as villains.

Ethnic Cleansing was a poor home made game based on a mod of another FPS probably Half Life 1 by the National Alliance a white supremacist group in the US and did not get wide distribution.

What do you make of the Channel 1 interview with former CIA agent Berkan Yashar who revealed the US and foreign involvement in engineering and creating the first Chechen war that US killed Bin Ladin 5 years ago.

"In September 1992 I was in Chechnya, that's when I first met the man, whose name was Bin Laden, this meeting took place in a two-story house in Grozny, on the top floor was a family of Gamsakhurdia, the Georgian president, who then kicked out of their country, and We met at the bottom; Osama lived in the same place "- said Berkan Yashar. Berkan says he does not know why bin Laden visited while in Grozny, and about his meetings with him said only one thing: "Just wanted to talk."

The truth, according to Channel One, in those years, a former employee of Radio Liberty, Berkan Yashar has already had an operational alias Abubakar, who gave him the CIA. According Berkana, after that trip, surrounded by Osama bin Laden appeared Chechens. In this case, Berkan Yashar notes that "directly in the terror bombings they did not participate." "They were protected bin Laden, it was his choice because he trusted them entirely, and knew that they would never betray," - said Yashar. The fact that the protection of bin Laden were Chechens, according to Yashar, knew not only he, but "and the Russian security services and the CIA knew about it too."

On the question of whether he believes that the Americans killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, Berkan Yashar answers: "Even if the whole world would have believed I would believe it could not." "The Chechens of his protection I know it themselves, and Mahmood Ayub, and they were with him until the very end, I well remember that date, there have been three sixes: 26 June 2006; these people personally, as well as two from London Two of America, only seven people saw him dead, he is very ill, he remained on the skin and bones, it is very thin, and they washed it ourselves, themselves put themselves buried it ", - said Berkan Yashar. Yashar stressed that although the two Muslim Americans and two British Muslims were in the protection of bin Laden and saw him dead, during funerals, they did not participate. "Only three Chechens buried him, according to his will" - said Yashar. Bin Laden was buried, according to Yashar, in the mountains on the Pakistan-Afghan border. "There was no assault was not, - said Yashar. - I am a well know American cuisine from the inside: just take, to find the grave dig bin Laden and say this - no dividends, they also need to show how technologically worked security services, each step is controlled , go commando, and then present it as a great victory, not in vain, they say, taxpayers are paying taxes. "

I was using Goggle translator so the translation is not 100% accurate.

Here is the original Russian and Google translated English version.

Bin Ladin was in Chechnya in 92?

This is big news and huge revelation which proves direct evidence Bin Ladin is a CIA agent.

I knew Bin Ladin, KSM and Zawahiri tried to or did visit Chechnya in 97 but I have never heard of any news he visited Chechnya before the war although there is a cap in Bin Ladins travels from the end of the Afghan war to Sudan in 93.
