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]

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
