Who Wants a Revolution? No One Who Owns a Major Media Outlet

“The pundits appear willfully ignorant of their own role in shaping electability narratives. In the debates, electability was a favorite topic of the journalists doling out questions, and the message (evidence be damned) was clear: Sanders is unelectable.

“Playing politics in a system that is not democratic is about being complicit in the charade.”

Glenn Greenwald: The Fun of Empire — Fighting on All Sides of a War in Syria

But the only clear lesson from all of this is that no matter the propagandistic script used, U.S. military action in that region virtually never fulfills the stated goals (nor is it intended to do so), and achieves little other than justifying endless military action for its own sake.
