War propaganda about Libya

If you haven't noticed, there's a very sophisticated media campaign against Gadhafi and Libya at the moment. The likes of BBC, CNN, Reuters, Associated Press, Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera are all spreading lies. Pictures and videos are being carefully constructed to give as much bias in favour of NATO and its 'rebel' allies.

The scenes of jubilation in Tripoli's Green Square shown on tv channels yesterday, which allegedly took place after the 'fall' of Tripoli, did not come from Tripoli. They came from a set of Green Square constructed near Doha, Qatar, which is where Al Jazeera is based. Take a look at the picture below.



If you look closely, there are some slight differences between Al Jazeera's set on the top left and the actual square on the top right. Further evidence to support skulduggery can be seen in the picture below showing an Al Jazeera correspondent reporting from Green Square.



The lifting cranes that you see in the background do not exist in the real Green Square. The cranes were used for construction work at the false Tripoli complex near Doha.

Initial social media messages on twitter about Gadhafi attacking his own people have also proven to be false, yet they played a critical role in influencing public opinion and the UN Security Council at the start of this campaign.

It's not the first time such deceit has been used in wars. In all cases, the aim of course is to dupe the gullible public into giving their support for those waging war.
