Independent journalist William Bowles, a contributor at BoilingFrogsPost, offers fascinating angles on Syria and other conflicts in this Boiling Frogs interview, co-hosted with Sibel Edmonds.
William Bowles joins us to discuss the latest on Syria, the massive propaganda campaign that has been unleashed on the Western public, and the real motives behind a rapacious imperial power in supporting, encouraging and arming groups like the FSA and the Syrian National Council to wage war on the government. Bowles makes the important distinction between armed insurrection and a popular revolution, and talks about the Westâ€™s â€˜Human Rightsâ€™ being a malleable notion utilized as a political and ideological weapon to be applied most selectively and discriminately- according to which â€˜sideâ€™ the government of any particular country happens to be on, and the phenomenon of the â€˜Red Topsâ€™, all written and run by well paid, university trained media professionals who have learned how to communicate their masterâ€™s message to its target audience- the working class.
