The German magazine Bild is a pathetic example of the state of the western media. Even the National Enquirer would not come up with such fiction.

America has always been at war with Russia; the Russians are evil and must be destroyed. We have always fought, and they have always taken everything for themselves; they must be defeated, or they will force us to speak Russia and write in Cyrillic, upside down because we're on the other side of the planet!! The Russian hordes are coming!!! Hurry!!!! Rally oh troops of yor! Come forth from your homes and hovels! To waarrrrrrrrrrr!

Sorry...was possessed briefly... by something....

Some people on the fringes are claiming the whole IS thing is a creation of Israel designed to bring the west to war with Islam, Islam to war with itself. The new video looks like it was made in Tel Aviv, not Raqqa.

And some people claim the whole IS thing and terrorism in general is a US fabrication intended to allow ongoing military intervention in the ME as well as a controlled and distracted masses at home.

Okay I misspoke and apologize to any who are personally offended. Instead of fabricated, I should have said unleashed and provoked. Okay I will concede that Islam has some disturbing attributes such as Jihadist-Salafism. Yet despite that millions upon millions of Muslims are not committing violent acts. The West has unleashed this violent component of Islam by years of provocation via the statehood of Israel and its ongoing terrorism upon the Palestinians. Of course all this escalating tremendously after 911 which Sea you yourself concede was an inside job. My point is not that terrorism and its horrors do not exist but they have been instigated by years of Western interference and intervention starting with the English empire and continued by the US empire. Of course the powers that be knew this but nevertheless we put troops in SA in the heart of Islam - Mecca. We have supported and helped install many dictators and despots who besides not respecting Islam enough were not particularly nice to their own people. We have built the Western riches with the oil of the Middle East and yet some in the ME live in squalid destitution especially the Palestinians. The people there know we and Europe are involved so much there for the oil. It is so plain to see. Yet we trumpet incessantly about this War on Terrorism which we helped unleash. Meantime, the world is going to hell in a hand basket and all we seem to notice on the Mainstream Media is how many beheadings have occurred. Of course the shock value results in an ever increasing hatred and fury of the Western populations. So nobody is innocent here, not the terrorists but neither the Western governments and their apologists. Some in the West understand the chronology of events and reasons behind the "WAR ON TERROR" and why it made sense to start it.

You know they show the kind of resolve and rhetoric that attracts people looking for a cause. We even have evidence of this from the number of western raised youth who get drawn into their 'cause'.

This kind of video makes it clear they want everyone for enemies to fulfill their belief system. They are acting out their version of prophecy in as antagonistic a fashion as possible to create the '80 banners' against them from the prophecy. When the first Caliphate was at it maximum reach above the Pyrenees mountains on the border between Spain and France they did not slaughter the Christians under their control. They taxed them and abused them, but they spent generations slowly converting the young into their faith instead of practicing genocide because they wanted everyone to join them, not everyone to fight them.

I think they know these things did not happen before they were liberated from the secular dictators.

Obvious BS given that the US and its NATO minions had no qualms bombing oil targets in Serbia in 1999:

CNN journalists are taking marching orders from government officials. Who needs a "state run" media?

Yall mistake laziness for orders. They aren't taking orders; they are REQUESTING them. They go the website, get the press release; add a few lines of "government Bob said that..", and publish it like its their article. 10 minuets tops.

That way they can go back to playing Candy Crush.

It's slightly more sinister than that http://www.globalresearch.ca/editor-of-major-german-newspaper-says-he-planted-stories-for-the-cia/5429324

Becoming the first credentialed, well-known media insider to step forward and state publicly that he was secretly a “propagandist,” an editor of a major German daily has said that he personally planted stories for the CIA.

Saying he believes a medical condition gives him only a few years to live, and that he is filled with remorse, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, the editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany’s largest newspapers, said in an interview that he accepted news stories written and given to him by the CIA and published them under his own name. Ulfkotte said the aim of much of the deception was to drive nations toward war.

Dr. Ulfkotte says the corruption of journalists and major news outlets by the CIA is routine, accepted, and widespread in the western media, and that journalists who do not comply either cannot get jobs at any news organization, or find their careers cut short...
What we think, we become.

Doing a quick Udo google search seems to indicate the confession got zero traction in Western media. Something you would think worthy of some protest or acknowledgement.

The CIA knows just wait a week, and they will be on to something else.
