I am grateful to my old friend Rob Elliott in Hobart for passing on this piece.
Do you remember the incident a couple of weeks ago when the Americans alleged three of their warships came under direct threat from Iranian vessels in the Strait of Hormuz? Well, surprise surprise, it ain’t what it appears to be at first glance.
This piece from Interp Press Service and posted at Commondreams.org deconstructs the story quite nicely and shows it for what it was – blatant propaganda designed to boost public interest in and support for Dubya’s sleazy “peace” mission to the Middle East.
Hat tip Rob, keep’em coming.
