Three sides to every story

Submitted by Roanman on Wed, 09/04/2013 - 19:59


Many, many years ago a wise, old divorce attorney told me, and I quote,

"Roany me boy" he said, "There are three sides to every story, his side, her side and the truth."

We've all heard the warmongering NeoLibs and their Democrat tools, both in government and media, flogging their story about the criminal Assad dictatorship murdering it's own citizens with sarin gas in much the same fashion that the murderous NeoCons and their significantly fewer but still highly effective Republican tools in government and media, once flogged their story about Iraq and weapons of mass destruction.

Now let's hear the other side shall we?

Wherein the Russian, Iranian and Chinese supported Assad government provides evidence exposing the murderous practices of the US and Saudi financed al Queda Syrian rebels, the very same terrorist organization that supposedly brought down the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and is widely promoted as being America's mortal enemy.

Your Uncle Roany is buying the third side to this story.

That being that both sides in this tragic c%#&@^$ f&#% are lying, scum sucking murderers that no thoughful person would under any set of circumstances have anything to do with, let alone partner up with.

Now, and here is the enormous catch, it's that thoughtful person thing that trips up both Neocon, Republican, government and media types as well as Neolib, Democrat, government and media tpes.

Who, as the Tea Party figured out during the Bush administration and the Occupy kids are figuring out during the Obama administration there is not an ounce of difference between them, as they are all pathological liars whose words on any issue are completely void of integrity.

This of course makes them identical to the Russian, Iranian, and Chinese backed Assad government as well as the US and Saudi backed al Queda rebels.

Do it not?

Watch this vid, it's short, to the point and should serve to piss you off real good.



As an aside, where are all those impassioned anti-war protesters nowadays?  

You know the ones, those good folks out there in the street, spewing about lies and liars and giving peace a chance during the Iraq and Afghan wars.  

Oopsies, silly question, they're Democrats and as such they only hate Republican wars.

Sixty Minutes has done this story twice now.

This particular video however is from the BBC series Modern Spies which we, being for the most part guys, really like.

From Wikipedia.


Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi (Arabic: رافد أحمد علوان‎, Rāfid Aḥmad Alwān; born 1968), known by the Central Intelligence Agency cryptonym "Curveball", is an Iraqi citizen who defected from Iraq in 1999, claiming that he had worked as a chemical engineer at a plant that manufactured mobile biological weapon laboratories as part of an Iraqi weapons of mass destruction program.[1] Alwan's allegations were subsequently shown to be false by the Iraq Survey Group's final report published in 2004.[2][3]

Despite warnings from the German Federal Intelligence Service questioning the authenticity of the claims, the US Government utilized them to build arationale for military action in the lead up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, including in the 2003 State of the Union address, where President Bush said "we know that Iraq, in the late 1990s, had several mobile biological weapons labs", and Colin Powell's presentation to the UN Security Council, which contained a computer generated image of a mobile biological weapons laboratory.[1][4] On November 4, 2007, 60 Minutes revealed Curveball's real identity.[5] Former CIA official Tyler Drumheller summed up Curveball as "a guy trying to get his green card essentially, in Germany, and playing the system for what it was worth."
