Obstacles on the road to one world government

Daily Pickings' primary function is to put events and issues into the context of Critical Thinking's analysis; for example, there are usually multiple causes/triggers for war but, almost without exception, they are a product of the global power system. The Structural Elite don't necessarily plan and coordinate every conflict but the system of incentives, penalties and coordinated propaganda make them inevitable. In the Middle East, the major conduit of Structural Elite power is Israel, supported by the US proxy empire and its vassal NATO collaborators.

How and why Israel masterminded the war in Syria by Whitney Webb
With some anticipating the long-awaited conclusion of the Syrian conflict, recent threats from Israel's government to assassinate Assad by bombing his residence seemed to appear out of the blue. According to the Jerusalem Post, a senior Israeli official accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a recent visit to Russia warned the Kremlin that if Iran continues to "extend its reach" in Syria, Israel would bomb the presidential palace in Damascus. 
Israel's comments should come as no surprise, however, as the foreign-funded and manufactured conflict in Syria was always Israel's war. The only real surprise is Israel's growing isolation in pushing for the further escalation of the conflict.

Propaganda plays a major part to ensure the elevated cattle follow the script and the common herd remain docile and compliant. Media are coordinated and, on Syria, they all play their part in obscuring the true nature of the conflict. That the anti-Assad forces are primarily driven by external forces and glamorised by Hollywood and mainstream television. Channel 4 seems to be running point on Syria,

How We Were Misled About Syria: Channel 4 News by Tim Hayward
Asked by a journalist from a mainstream publication why she seemed to be challenging ‘all these absolutely documentable facts that we’ve seen from the ground’, she [Eva Bartlett] pointed out that he was referring to a hearsay narrative, not facts, because ‘sources on the ground? You don’t have them.’...
...This neat side-stepping of the first problem, however, put Channel 4’s coverage at risk of succumbing to the second problem highlighted by Eva Bartlett: any testimony coming out of opposition-held areas has to be considered compromised. For we have to assume that whatever is reported from the opposition-held area is only what those with the guns will permit. So the presumption must be that information coming out is unlikely to be the whole truth and may contain untruths.

If we consume these lies, we pollute our minds and add to the problem by giving them an audience; ratings give the lies credence. Not only should we avoid watching or reading the propaganda, we should avoid referencing them at all. Difficult when we're trying to highlight their mendacity. However, if we promote the alternatives, such as the articles above and other independent information and news sources, we stand a chance of weaning more of the human cattle off their daily diet of propaganda. Once that happens it's game over for the system and their genocidal wars.
