As Waters noted, your White Helmets work limited to groups that are classified either as jihadists,?like Jaysh al-Islam, or enemy groups, like?al-Nusra Front, and now have frequently been denounced as a “propaganda make,” owing to their ability to make high-definition videos but?inability to conduct basic paramedic procedures.
Waters continued, saying:
If we were to listen to the propaganda of your White Helmets and others, we’d be encouraged to encourage each of our governments to start dropping tanks on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for many people as human beings.”

Indeed, the White Masks often call for airstrikes targeting the Syrian federal and echo foreign government authorities regarding the need to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The actual congruence is unsurprising given that the Whitened Helmets?were founded?by way of former U.K. intelligence officer and mercenary, James Le Mesurier, and have received hundreds of millions for dollars from the governments in the U.S., the Anyone.K. and Qatar.
Waters concluded his statements on the White Headwear and the current situation in Syria by means of asserting that:
“What we should conduct is go and influence our governments not to head out and drop bombs upon people. And certainly not right until we have done all the investigation that is necessary so that we will have a clear idea of precisely what is really going on. Because many of us live in the world where propaganda is very much more important than the reality of what is really going on.”
Bomb first, check out later
The reference to the flimsy intelligence employed by the U.K., You actually.S. and France to warrant the strikes is clear. In line with?official government statements, You tube videos, social media posts along with testimony of people on the ground during Jaysh al-Islam-controlled areas were used to justify the strikes, as opposed to actual tangible evidence that a chemical weaponry attack took place, let alone who’s got been responsible if it do.
The U.S.?openly publicly stated?that it had no evidence whilst the strike proving Assad’s government had launched the harm, merely that it was “confident” that an breach had taken place and that the particular Syrian government was capable of acquiring conducted it. Interestingly, any strikes were launched the previous day the international chemical weaponry watchdog, the OPCW,?was collection to begin investigating?the alleged site of the attacks inside Douma.
As Waters noted, the actions of them Western governments seem to indicate that propaganda has become more important than truth, as long as that propaganda serves long-standing geopolitical desired goals.
