BBC Fakes Tripoli Video

Once again the BBC has proven that it is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the British Government with its latest video proclaiming to be victory celebrations in Tripoli.

Once again the BBC has proven that it is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the British Government with its latest video proclaiming to be victory celebrations in Tripoli.

If you examine the video closely you will notice that people are waving Indian flags and that they are in fact wearing indian style clothing and look Indian. The last time I checked an Atlas India was not on the continent of Africa.

Nor is this just a case of the wrong video loaded by the BBC, because they had added the caption 'Live Tripoli'. It looks more like a crowd celebrating after a cricket match win or something. Watching the video they don't have the sort of adrenaline you expect from something as terrifying as a combat zone.

People from now on will have to question or even disregard everything we are told by the likes of BBC, CNN, Sky News, etc, and start viewing articles and videos contained on all the other alternative, non - corporate controlled, media sources. Such as the one you are all viewing now.

I have provided a link to the BBC video so you can see for yourself the deception at play.

I remember Hilary Clinton saying recently that the US Government is losing the information war. Seeing the low levels the mainstream media will sink to, I think she's right.
