I know we've been told over and over by a few folks here that the all-powerful media giants, the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) and corporate cartels are working in concert on their secret plan for world domination, and that, somehow, bombing Syria is part of that secret plan because of oil and gas and PNAC and godknowswhatelse that was rolled up into the Giant Ball of Conspiracy™ and that Americans would fall in line like lemmings due to the overwhelming propaganda effort of these moneyed elites that leaves most Americans -- especially those poor bastards who have yet to understand what is really happening in this country -- glassy-eyed and helpless to resist this onslaught of propaganda...
But goddamn it if a new Pew poll doesn't show just the opposite!
That is, that in just the last week, opposition to U.S. involvement in Syria has shot up 15%, from 48% last week to 63% this week!
Despite the "propaganda."
fucking stupid ignorant blind most Americans haven't been reading diaries here telling them how fucking stupid ignorant blind they are being manipulated by the media giants, the MIC and the corporate cartels into supporting yet another war.
True, some of us have been saying (over and over) that most Americans are sick to fucking death of war in the Middle East and western Asia and want nothing to do with Syria, and that the administration had left a gaping hole in its rationalizations for action by not talking about the extended consequences of such action on the Assad regime, the rebels, for the region, for our relationship with Russia, and, ultimately for the U.S., but, hey, whaddo we know?
We're no freakin' experts!
Either that, or millions of Americans have been visiting Daily Kos and have had their eyes opened by those who know the real truth about what's going on in this country!
Yeah, that's probably it.
