Deceiving the World with Pictures

This photo was first published by the Reuters as an image of a “dead woman being carried by the Georgian soldiers from the town of Gori”. But this “dead woman”, incredibly, is clutching the nurse’s arm.

This man exhibiting rage and grief happens to sit in the exact same place where the earlier picture was taken: the same pile of garbage is behind his back and scraps of metal from the picture of a “dead” woman being ‘rescued’ are lying around like in the earlier photo — plus some, additional, unidentified scraps of metal. What are these supposed to represent
Since when did a dead person when being carried hold on to the carrier!!!???
Now that is a mystery which only Reuters can tell us about.
I have looked extremely closely at these two photographs, and especially at the piece of scrap metal marked 1.
This scrap metal is precisely the same piece of scrap metal and it appears in both pictures. I have even looked at the serrated underside edge and you can see that this is precisely the same piece of metal.
So therefore what you have here are actors in operation and the scene brought to my mind so many things we have experienced over recent years. Here are some:
1. The El Dhurra France 2 image of the man and boy behind the barrel and the fakery of the boy Mohammed el Dhurra being killed by the Israelis. That was a fake, fake journalism and fake photography.
2. The Qana issue.
EUReferendum commented on this piece of Media skullduggery:  I have called this post, “the director’s cut”, as that is what it is. The narrative here is of how the combination of Hezbollah’s media management and modern photo-journalism has turned the recording of a tragic event into theatre, in the best tradition of Michael Moore.
In the use of staged photography this whole thing took the proverbial biscuit. Starring roles in pinning a massacre on the Israelis were take by Mr White tee shirt man and Mr Green Helmet man, here also sporting the orange glow jacket. These were actors who in the ruined building of Qana appeared here, there and everywhere. These actors were under the direction of Hizbullah and Palestinian and Arab photographers were performing on behalf of the Western Media outlets.
If you think we are not serious then check out the best pictures on this on
Best described in this Wikipedia entry which in this case is factual
Palestinian sources described the events as “the Jenin massacre,” and international media and human rights organizations expressed concerns that a massacre had taken place.Subsequent Israeli investigations found no evidence to substantiate these charges; these were later substantiated by international human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch. The Palestinian death toll was estimated at 52 in early May 2002, while 23 Israeli soldiers were killed, and it was determined that a massacre had not occurred. Palestinian officials counted 56 deaths.[10]

Despite new findings following the battle, including a decrease in the official death toll, most Palestinians and most Arabs continue to call the events of April 2002 a massacre.[11]

(The antisemitic Arabs had been claiming thousands murdered. The figures above tell all about Media lies…FQ)

(The following is from BBC News of two days ago, August 29…FQ)


Pictures ‘show Georgia torching’


One of the satellite images (Courtesy of Human Rights Watch)

Satellite images have confirmed that ethnic Georgian villages inside South Ossetia have been deliberately burned, US-based Human Rights Watch says.

It said analysis by UN experts showed the damage “was caused by intentional burning and not armed combat”.

HRW researchers had “personally witnessed Ossetian militias looting and burning down ethnic Georgian villages”.

The group said this was evidence of war crimes and urged Russia to prosecute those responsible.


And so it goes on. This reminds one of Madeleine Albright who claimed that the Serbs had committed a massacre in Srebrenica and showed satellite pictures of a mass grave. The pictures showed nothing of the kind and the US never allowed those pictures be examined by an independent authority much less than by those she was accusing of atrocity, the Serbs.

In this business of spreading lies he who gets in the first shot, of lying that is, is on the winning ticket.

Following the jest by Mark Twain

“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

And so it is with this propaganda put about by this extremely dubious outfit, funded by millionaire Mr George Soros, Human Rights Watch.


They do continue:

10 August, Human Rights Watch said.

“The images strongly indicate that the majority of the destruction in five of the villages – Tamarasheni, Kekhvi, Kvemo Achabeti, Zemo Achabeti, and Kurta – was caused by intentional burning.

“The high-resolution images of these villages show no impact craters from incoming shelling or rocket fire, or aerial bombardment.”

All of this adds up to compelling evidence of war crimes
Rachel Denber
HRW deputy director, Europe and Central Asia

The images were analysed by UN experts in Geneva, Human Rights Watch said.

“The expert analysis indicates clear patterns of destruction that are consistent with the evidence gathered by Human Rights Watch researchers working in the region,” the human rights group said.

The researchers had spoken to several members of the Ossetian militias who “openly admitted that the houses were being burned by their associates, explaining that the objective was to ensure that ethnic Georgians would not have the houses to return to,” it said.

“All of this adds up to compelling evidence of war crimes and grave human rights abuses,” said Rachel Denber, deputy director of the Europe and Central Asia division of Human Rights Watch.

“This should persuade the Russian government it needs to prosecute those responsible for these crimes.”

And so we move along and now the same thing is beginning to happen as happened following the retaking of Srebrenica by the Serbs in 1995.

1. Those who were there, especially the Dutch UN soldiers, were clear that no massacre of any kind took place

2. Yet the Media of the West gathering on Tuzla began to spread lies in the west that there was a horrible massacre

3. At the same time the authoritive Dutch Report working seriously at the same time was pinpointing these lying journalists, and affirming that no massacre happened


But this rotten media of a rotting western capitalist system knows how to operate and by constant repetition of a massacre “of 8000 men and boys” by the Serbs it became the norm.

The Dutch Report was buried and anybody who questioned the Media Lie became labelled as genocide “deniers”!.

And that, my friends, is the significance of the BBC giving all this space to this known lying machine which works on behalf od US and British Imperialism, of whom George Soros is thought to be an intelligence agent

The interview by President Dmitry Medvedev to Russia Today affirms everything that we have been saying.

1. This issue is not to be seen as revenge for Kosovo. It is connected of course, but it must be understood on its own merits

2. Until recently Russia had been supporting the unity of Georgia and was not recognising these new independent states.

3. The attack by Saakashvil, by the American Government (not their ordinary people though), with aid from Israel has changed everything and the clock cannot be turned back.

Moreover the interview affirms what we said, that Russia appeared as the defenders and liberators of the ordinary people of Ossetia from Georgian Fascists like Saakashvili and the US Imperialists. This includes as liberators of the Jews who have had their lives ruined by the destruction of the Jewish Quarter. Get this, Russia has come forward as the defender of Jews against Saakashvili, against US Imperialism, against the EU Imperialists especially Britain, AND against Israel also involved in this attack.

We on 4international are quite alone in taking this position.

Our position is in sharp contrast with especially Jewish American leaders. See:

Medvedev does not state it but we are quite explicit. Along with the destruction of Yugoslavia this attack on South Ossetia by (US and British puppet) Saakashvili represents the first shots in the war with China and Russia.

Russia is Not Afraid of Anything, the Prospect of Another Cold War Included

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev

Special Cases Everywhere

With the Russian parliament backing the independence of the breakaway republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, President Dmitry Medvedev gives his views on the issue in an exclusive interview with Russia Today.

RT: Immediately after Kosovo’s independence was recognised, Moscow said this could become a precedent for South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Today, you made a decision to support these republics’ independence. Why did Russia do it? Does this square with international law?

Medvedev: I’ll start with your second question. This is fully in line with international law. When the case of Kosovo arose, my colleagues said this was a special case, or, as experts in international affairs say, casus sui generis. Well, each case of such recognition is a special case. The situation in Kosovo was special, and the situation in South Ossetia and Abkhazia is special as well.

In our situation, it is quite obvious that we made this decision in order to prevent genocide and annihilation of these peoples, and to help them to come to their feet. Continue reading

We on this site separate from all on the so-called “Left” because we identify Zionism as the right of the Jewish people to have their Homeland and that this is Israel. This is also the position that Leon Trotsky took up in the 1930s.

For a defence of this position the reader could turn to because on this this writer argued strongly that Leon Trotsky in the late 30s was supporting the setting up of the (to be) Israel and was doing so with great urgency. This information had been and is still being totally obscured by “Left” and Imperialist alike. In the case of the “Left” – Stalinism has been a big factor. Not only did Stalinism murder Trotsky but they have tried to obscure his life history as well.

But what do we do when today Jewish organizations are ignoring the destruction of the Jewish Quarter by Saakashvili in the town of Tskhinvali, the capital of Ossetia.

Let us turn to Canadian website Israpundit, editor Ted Belman. This site is engaged in a campaign to have McCain elected to be President of the US. As part of this the site is totally in support of Saakashvili and it has thus hidden the reality that the Georgian state machine aided by the US, and with some aid from Israel, launched the genocidal attack on Tskhinvali just after midnight as the 7th turned into the 8th of August.

In the course of this attack the Jewish Quarter was destroyed.

[extract from previous post]

What reactionary rubbish from Julia Gorin!

Her latest piece shows that she has had no clue what the war by US and British Imperialism against Yugoslavia was all about. This is where we separate totally from Gorin.

The war to destroy Yugoslavia and the Kangaroo Court in the Hague was really the first shots in the war to destroy China and Russia, and to capture the huge Asian market of decadent Imperialism.

The worsening of the crisis in capitalism in the recent years has meant that this is ever more the case.

Gorin in the end is an apologist for US and British Imperialism, for this decadent capitalist system, and is an out and out opponent of socialism.

Since the very first minute we on 4international said that the Saaklashvili attack on Tskhinvali and South Ossetia represented the first real shot int he war of Imperialism against China and Russia.

This attack by Saakashvili also showed the limits of bourgeois nationalism. This was no ordinary Georgian nationalism, this was a Georgian “nationalism” captured by Soros and Imperialism and acting as a puppet for Imperialism.

In this which was the first blow struck by decadent capitalism, especially US and British capitalism (Imperialism) against Russia and China, the Russians are the victims as well as the Ossetians.

This is why all of the Media, including Jewish blogs like Israpundit, have done everything in their power in order to hide the reality of the Saakashvili attack. Israpundit and other American and Canadian blogs have yet to cover the fact that the Jewish Quarter in Tskhinvali was destroyed by Saakashvili and his American Imperialist and believe it or not Israeli supporters. The question is raised are they Jewish, or are they American Imperialist aided by the British?

So the statement yesterday that the US was directly behind the attack on Tskhinvali by Prime Minister of Russia Putin is of great importance. It has been covered by great Serbian blog Byzantine Blog today:

Putin Hits the Nail on the Head (Several Times Over)

Vladimir Putin on CNN
“The fact is that U.S. soldiers were indeed in the area of conflict during the hostilities”, Putin told CNN, which then undertook some creative transliteration and translated the word soldiers to citizens. You just can’t rely on corporate media to tell the truth about a single damn thing! [video]

“U.S. Instigated Georgia’s Attack on South Ossetia”

“It is not just that the American side could not restrain the Georgian leadership from this criminal act. The American side in effect armed and trained the Georgian army,” Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told CNN in an interview.

Putin said the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict may have been staged to secure a victory for one of the presidential candidates in the U.S. He says preliminary reports show that the American soldiers may have been present in the combat zone.

“We have serious reasons to believe that American soldiers were right at the heart of the military action. This would have implications for American domestic policy. If this is confirmed, we will have grounds to suspect that somebody in the U.S. has created this conflict to aggravate the situation and create a competitive advantage for one of the presidential candidates”.

As part of our discussion on Israel and Georgia I thought it would be an idea to republish this comment on a famous article by a friend of 4international, Max or Enigmax as he wittily called himself!

Is it not obvious to anyone with half a brain that Georgia led by Saakashvili is the US and British puppet and that he is the equivalent of say the KLA, or Tudjman, or Izetbegovic, who were the battering rams and Imperialist stooges against Serbia.

The folowing comment then by Max raises all of the issues inside a few lines. Revisit this discussion en toto to ascertain rather accurately the complete political bogland which is Israpundit on matters of political principle.

Bill Narvey, you have completely missed the point and essence of the article!

We are going to be casting an eye on the contortions of Israpundit, the Canadian cum US Imperialist supporting website on the choosing of Biden by the Democrats.

Biden Caught Ustasha Virus

Senator Joseph Biden

Joe Biden Caught Virulent Serbophobia from the Ustasha Clergy Back in the Early 1980s

When Obama’s running mate Joe Biden stated that “all Serbs should be placed in Nazi-style concentration camps” during Senatorial deliberations in 1999 over NATO aggression on Serbia, most of the world was unaware of the source of such virulent Serb-hatred one would generally be ashamed of harboring, let alone advertising. But issuing a statement that amounts to approval of the genocide Serbian nation had already been subjected to during the WWII, by the Croat fascists — Ustashe — and that it should, indeed, have been entirely exterminated in the death camps of which Ustasha-run Jasenovac was the most macabre chain of slaughterhouses in Europe, could have been inspired only by the pathological Croat Ustasha ideology fueled and grown on pure, undiluted hatred of everything Serbian.

So, it has now emerged that the Jewish Quarter in Tskhinvali, the capital city of South Ossetia, was destroyed by the attack of US and British Imperialist puppet Saakashvili in the early hours of August 8, 2008.

One Jewish Jewish Quarter Tskhinvali family remains. Where the rest are nobody yet knows.

Now what is most interesting to me is the response of the Jewish leaders in Israel and in America cum Canada to this. And how it rates in their scale of concerns. So far it appears not a lot!

Reuters has produced a report in which they follow a man called Hammarberg (who is the Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner whatever that may be!) around South Ossetia. They visited a village name of Khetagurova which is Ossetian surrounded by Georgian villages.

The report seems largely truthful and sticks to facts. This is not to be sneered at because Reuters has been found out to be creating fake photographs against the Ossetians and Russia. See

From this it would seem that the attack on South Ossetia by US and British Imperialist puppet Saakashvili was certainly a war crime. There is also an incident in which the Russians release two Georgian militia men who were involved in the attack and in doing so the Russians are in direct conflict with the Ossetians in this village, because the Georgians took 4 of their number prisoner, and they by that date were still prisoner. It must be remembered that over many years Russia had delayed recognizing the independence of Ossetia, until it was too late and the US puppet Saakashvili launched his genocidal attack.

Only one thing in this Reuters report, They refer to the Jewish Quarter as “so-called” Jewish Quarter. Why?

The Associated press report of the Valery Gergiev concert in the ruins of Tskhinvali has a mock ironic title. The writer obviously does not know what to make of a man who has not lost his sense of patriotism.

Gergiev Goes Politicking
By Yuras Karmanau
Associated Press
August 22, 2008

TSKHINVALI, Georgia (AP) — Surrounded by flickering candles and flanked by armored personnel carriers, Russian conductor Valery Gergiev led a requiem concert Thursday for South Ossetia’s war dead in the breakaway region’s devastated capital.

As cameras on booms swept over the bullet-pocked facade of Tskhinvali’s parliament, Gergiev — an Ossetian native — took to the stage and embraced a line of teary-eyed South Ossetian children. Continue reading


August 27, 2008

The great Russian conductor Valery Gergiev who works in London has travelled to Tskhinvali and given a concert among the ruins of that city. NATO lay behind Saakashvili in the attack just past midnight on 7 to 8 of August, an attack which has killed very many innocent civilians, including the complete destruction of the Jewish Quarter.

It is a great thing which Gergiev has done. The responses from the British public and presumably many music lovers is not half bad either.

The theme was Russia’s victory over Georgia; the spirit was Second World War defiance; the music was from Leningrad — and the conductor was from London.

Surrounded by soldiers and barbed wire, hundreds crowded into the centre of Tskhinvali to see Valery Gergiev conduct the Maryinsky Orchestra from St Petersburg as Russia staged a victory concert amid the ruins of the capital of South Ossetia.

From the mournful first bars of Shostakovitch’s Symphony No 7 (known as the Leningrad) in the makeshift arena, it was clear that the theme of the night was a stirring appeal to patriotism and the memories of Russian suffering during the Second World War. Continue reading


The following is a good analysis of the situation. Although we have differences with the writer read it for its own sake as it contains useful historical information on the coming to power in Georgia of Saakashvili. The article in my opinion tends to minimise the drive to war by US and British Imperialism against Russia and China as being the real meaning behind the rise and promotion of Saakashvili.

(This is wrong in my opinion. I do not at all see this as Russia “invading” Georgia. This gives entirely the wrong impression. It is necessary to turn this around.

What other way is there to express the issue if you are a revolutionary and a Trotskyist. The organization is hostile to Trotsky…FQ)

The Puppet Masters Behind Georgia President Saakashvili

The controversy over the Georgian surprise military attacks on South Ossetia and Abkhazia on 8.8.08 makes a closer look at the controversial Georgian President and his puppet masters important. An examination shows 41 year old Mikhail Saakashvili to be a ruthless and corrupt totalitarian who is tied to not only the US NATO establishment, but also to the Israeli military and intelligence establishment. The famous ‘Rose Revolution of November 2003 that forced the aging Edouard Shevardnadze from power and swept the then 36 year old US university graduate into power was run and financed by the US State Department, the Soros Foundations, and agencies tied to the Pentagon and US intelligence community.

Mihkail Saakashvili was deliberately placed in power in one of the most sophisticated US regime change operations, using ostensibly private NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) to create an atmosphere of popular protest against the existing regime of former Soviet Foreign Minister Edouard Shevardnadze, who was no longer useful to Washington when he began to make a deal with Moscow over energy pipelines and privatizations.

Saakashvili was brought to power in a US-engineered coup run on the ground by US-funded NGO’s, in an application of a new method of US destabilization of regimes it considered hostile to its foreign policy agenda. Continue reading

What a total disgrace! Those Jews who call themselves “Jews” and who backed Saakashvili in his genocidal attack on the Ossetians must be totally ashamed. But we doubt it.

Because the news just emerging is that the genocidal Georgians of Saakashvili. no more than a puppet of NATO and US and British Imperialism, also levelled the Jewish Quarter in Tskhinvali, South Ossetia.

In this article I simply concentrate on soem of the many comments of Yamit82 on Israpundit which lies about the Georgian issue. All is directed to hiding the truth of the Georgian Saakashvili attack on the Ossetians. It is a big issue for leadership why these American, Canadian and Israeli Jews are hiding this.

We on this site 4international fully defend Israel as the Jewish Homeland against Antisemitism. But we will oppose lies from Jewish leaders.

The writers who now control the website Israpundit are first and foremost the editor Ted Belman who is a supporter, despite all he has done against the Jews, of Bush.

The other three writers with a big say are in order Bill Levinson, Yamit82 and Jerry Gordon. You could say that the output of these 4 control Israpundit.

The Jewish people are in great danger but certainly they are not in great danger from Russia but from their own leaders, especially the American Jewish leaders, one of whom is certainly Joseph Lieberman.

Read this report of the visit which Lieberman took to Georgia and find in it if you are able any mention by Lieberman of the cowardly attack which Saakashvili launched against Tskhinvali and South Ossetia.

It appears that Lieberman could care less about the people of South Ossetia, a people who were terribly butchered int he most cowardly way by Saakashvili, backed by US power and by some traitorous to Israel and the Jews Israelis.

There is no doubt that the Israeli state, Israeli leaders and Israeli get rich quick business opportunists were involved in the attack on South Ossetia by Georgia.

Also the whole of the Israeli Media and especially the Jewish American Blogs have been totally disgraceful in how they have systematically backed Saakashvili and promoted lies about the attack, essentially covering up for this Monster, who is an enemy of ordinary Georgians too.

They (these Jewish American and Canadian Blogs) have been slavish followers of US Imperialism, Bush, Rice, McCain and Obama. There is no doubt about this at all.

But remember this is NOT the Jewish people, the ordinary Jewish people of Israel or ordinary Jewish people in America and Diaspora.

How to answer the Big lie of the Media!

The Media has claimed repeatedly that the Russians attacked Georgia and they have sought to hide the Georgian Saakashvili attack on tiny South Ossetia and its tiny capital city Tskhinvali. So one will look in vain as to what really happened.

So the following report from the St. Petersburg Times we learn that Georgians living in that city have donated money and help to rebuild the Tskhinvali Hospital damaged by the troops of the Georgian Government, that is by their own government.

It has to be remembered that Saakashvili is a demagogue politician and that just last November he was closing down newspapers in Georgia proper, arresting and torturing opponents.

Naturally in recent days much national anti Russian feeling has been stirred up but there are plenty of Georgians who can see through the Saakashvili leadership.

The big issue in the world today is the same as it was 2 weeks ago. When in the early hours of August 8, 2008 the Georgian military, closely aligned with the US Government, and with a significant Israeli imput attacked South Ossetia and especially its capital city Tskhinvali (really a large town) – what did happen?

This is the issue which has been covered over in the most remorseless fashion by the Media in the whole of the West.

So all of the 8th, all of the 9th, and only then did the Russian troops arrive in the outskirts of Tskhinvali. This is the most vital question, to understand what happened during this time. What were the true intentions of the Americans because they surely were involved. Please dismiss from your mind the idea that Saakashvili moved against South Ossetia because he is impulsive etc! And were there really Israelis involved in this attack? Those are the questions an awful lot of people are trying to hide.

The following website has done some work on this issue. Continue reading

The crisis in Georgia has thrown the whole world into huge crisis. But the lessons have already been learned a long time ago and the wheel does not have to be reinvented.

The issues are posed especially sharply in


1. The assistance given to the horrific puppet of US and British Imperialism Saakashvili by Israel.

2. The slavish support for Saakashvili by the Jewish ruling class leaders in Israel and in the American and Canadian Jewish organizations.

According to all of these liars there is no doubt about what happened. Russia invaded sovereign and independent Georgia.

But they have hidden the small matter that Saakashvili prompted and even led by the US military machine present inside Georgia launched a savage attack on the tiny Ossetian people and murdered in one night 1600 which is a very high percentage of the total population of 70,000 Ossetians.

The question, the very big question, yet to be answered is why was there any Israeli involvement?

So then! Is Saakashvili a national liberation fighter, in combat against the Russian Bear.

The answer is a clear no! Saakashvili, every inch of him, is a paid puppet of the US and NATO organizations.

On what is Saakashvili based? Is he based on the Georgian people? Well just last November Saakashvili was closing down television stations and imprisoning Georgian citizens.

In fact Saakashvili is a product of a coup d’etat which took place as a result of George Soros funded NGOs which were translated into Georgia from Yugoslavia and the aim was to create a US puppet in Georgia.

The same Soros who stands behind both McCain and Obama.

So we have here a perfect example of a national state (Georgia under Saakashvili) being captured by US and British Imperialism for their own reactionary ends, which is essentially to use as a weapon against Russia.

But because of this there are now many dead Ossetians and dead Russian soldiers who were murdered by that cowardly attack by these forces in the early morning of August 8.

This by the way is NOT Zionism in action. This is the pro Imperialist Jewish leaders who lead Israel, and the pro Imperialist Jewish leaders who lead the majority of Jewish organizations in America and Canada.

Zionism is something else and we as Trotskyists say that Zionism remains intact as a rightful national movement which seeks to set up a Homeland for the oppressed Jews.

We do not think that Saakashvili speaks for the Georgians, that Bush Obama or McCain for the ordinary Americans and that these Jewish leaders who participated in attacking the Ossetians and Russia speak for the Jews.

Leon Trotsky did not agree witht the attack on Georgia led by Stalin and said so.

But at that time also Georgia was being used by British and French Imperialism in order to try to destroy the Russian Revolution. These are the issues which Trotsky poses in the following. (This is one chapter and if the reader follows the links he can read the whole book.)

Leon Trotsky

Between Red and White


Self-Determination and the Revolution


The Allied powers do not intend to recede from the great principle of the self-determination of small nations. They will only repudiate this principle when they are faced with the fact that some of the temporarily independent nations prove themselves to be a peril to universal peace by their incapacity to maintain order, by their bellicose and aggressive acts, and even by constant, childish and unnecessary insistence on their own dignity. The Great Powers will not tolerate such nations, as they are determined to preserve universal peace.

With these energetic words the British General Walker impressed on the Georgian Mensheviks’ minds the conception of the relativity of national right to self-determination. Politically, Henderson stood, and still stands, behind his general. But ‘on principle’, he is willing to turn national self-determination into an absolute principle, and to direct it against the Soviet Republic. Continue reading
