2nd Update!-scroll down past the first ;)
I want to get this up quick because this news and it's headline seems to be disappearing, fast
While reading the latest, hit a news story that had the headline - Russia calls on Syrian opposition, to cease-fire
"Russia calls on Syrian Opposition to cease-fire" that was the headline. When I got to the story, the headline was now "Syria claims it started pulling back troops" Along with the headline change, an entire sentence was missing. Altered, might be more accurate.
This was the originating sentence:
"Russia has called on the opposition as well as countries that "influence them" to use their powers to bring about a cease-fire in Syria.
This was the altered sentence:
Lavrov also said called on the opposition to halt the violence.
This is how it works in the "la la land" that is the mainstream media. Manipulation is rampant. Everyday, at all hours.
I found another article still containing that sentence and more Russia calls on Syrian opposition, to cease-fire
Quoting from the piece before it too goes down the memory hole!
Russia has called on the opposition as well as countries that "influence them" to use their powers to bring about a cease-fire in Syria.
He also called for a speedy deployment of international observers — including Russians — in the country.
Why is the Western media changing or censoring initial reports?
An aside: This is not the first time, nor the second or third time I have caught stories changing with vital information left out. Information that would help readers get fuller, clearer pictures of ongoing events.
Update: additional info begins here
PM Erdogan and Saudi King to meet on Syria
This meeting was so very important that Erdogan cut short his meeting in China to fly back to directly to Saudi Arabia. I wonder if he got an urgent call from his dominatrix Hilary, prior to leaving?
Gotta get the war on!
"The Syrian issue is top of the agenda," the official told Reuters in confirming that Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan would hold talks with King Abdullah in Riyadh at the end of the week. A Turkish newspaper said Erdogan would fly there directly on Thursday on his way home from an official visit to China.
Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter has led Arab efforts to isolate Assad over the violent repression of an uprising that the United Nations says has killed 9,000 people.
I mentioned this bizarre version of reality- Saudi Arabia leading efforts against Assad over violent repression?
Saudi Arabia?!The media reports this, in all seriousness? How? Everyone getting the idea of how vast the disconnect between the media and reality? Do I have to keep hammering away at it?
To take the Saudi's absurd position evern further they mention Syria failure to comply with the Anan plan....
Never mentioning the failure of that nation, the tyrannical fiefdom of Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to stop arming the rebels. No mention of Turkey's failure to comply to the 6 point plan.
Spin, spin, spin....
2nd Update:Keep in mind this is not the first time Security Council members were informed that the Anan Plan deadline had been extended by two day. I had previously read this somewhere in amongst the many articles I have reviewed lately
So ignore the spin on how certain UN members are all upset about the extension. They knew before today.
"Several Western diplomats complained privately that Damascus appeared to have won a two-day extension"Boohoo they knew
I am just posting the important points- Anan is not leaving out the rebels
"Every effort must be made to achieve a cessation of violence in all its forms on 12 April at 0600 (0300 GMT)," Annan told the council in a letter
"There is no more time to lose," Annan said in a statement to the press. "We must all push for an end to the bloodshed before Syria plunges into the abyss."
The opposition should also cease fighting in order to "give no excuse for the government to renege on its commitments."
Since readers here have been following along, you are all aware that Turkey declared the UN Plan dead!
I mentioned that in yesterday's post, Bashar Al Jaafari, like Syria, abused by the UN- News from Syria
