2015-12-07 The Spin Wars Of Syria

It’s the most propagandistic conflict in this century yet, the Syrian Civil War. Martin Schibbye targets the killing and kidnapping of journalists as the root cause. In the world of social media, all factions want to portray themselves and independent voices are no longer needed. Islamic State (The Empire or The Rebels?)are filming the executions of journalists to spread fear in the world. We interview Swedish terror expert Hans Brun on the IS propaganda. Syrian journalist in exile, Qais Fares exposes the propaganda of the Assad regime (The Empire?). We also talk about the handsome Canadian who is fighting for the Syrian Kurds, the IS destruction of World Heritage sites, Putin, Cameron, Obama, Assad, Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi (choose your own Darth Vader) rt.com and much more.

Thanks for listening!
