I'm just watching the funeral of KIM JONG-IL, and no matter what station you watch it on, the commentators are making snidey comments about the extent of the grief of the North Korean people. Well they look pretty convincing to me. Anyone who stands about in the snow for 3 hours and cry with utter grief is someone who is not too happy at his death.
It's been the same in the so called 'Arab spring'. Whenever we don't like the leader, like in Iran, Syria and Libya, the people are just dying to get rid of their leaders, but in countries like Bahrain, Jordan and Saudia Arabia, the people love their leaders with a great gusto. It's all utter pish. We are fed so much crap by the likes of the BBC and Sky whose reporters are fed shit by the foreign office that after a time they don't try and seek the truth because it is easier to spout out the crud they are given. Only now and again can you actually get some truthful reporting. Organisations like OpenDemocracy and Global Research who publish articles like this, are worth reading at least to get some balance on the MSM rubbish. I urge though of you who don't to have a read at them.
