Humor crushes false narratives

Dead Psy-op

Monty Python’s ‘Dead Parrot Sketch’ – adapted after the failure of the sarin false flag:

CIA: ‘Ello, I wish to register a complaint. I wish to complain about this psy-op that I purchased¹ not a fortnight ago from your very outfit.

Al Queda: Oh yes, the, uh, the ‘Sarin Bullshit’ …What’s, uh… What’s wrong with it?

CIA: I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it, my lad. It’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with it!

Al Queda: No, no, it’s uh,…it’s resting.

CIA: Look, matey, I know a dead psy-op when I see one, and I’m looking at one right now.

Al Queda: No no it’s not dead, it’s, it’s restin’! Remarkable psy-op, the ‘Sarin Bullshit’, idn’it, ay? Beautiful umbrage!²

CIA: The umbrage don’t enter into it. Your own bird-brained pics and videos prove it to be false!

A Queda: Well, it’s…it’s, ah…probably pining for media attention.

CIA: It’s not pinin’! It’s passed on! This psy-op is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s exposed as false! It’s ability to be convincing is now ‘istory! It’s been debunked!! THIS IS AN EX-PSY-OP!!

¹ US has supported “moderate rebels” both covertly and overtly. Independent analysts believe that there are really NO “moderates” because al Queda and ISIS control the armed opposition.
² UMBRAGE is the CIA program for falsely attributing cyber-attacks.  It was reveal by Wikileaks in their Vault7 release.

Background
Theodore A. Postol, Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology, and National Security Policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has debunked the alleged April 2017 sarin gas attack in Syria.  This is just the latest debunking of claims that sarin was used by the Syrian government.  The supposed sarin Gas attack on Ghouta in 2013 was also contested yet Obama was just as wiling as Trump to bomb Syria.  Russia’s offer to rid Syria of chemical weapons forced Obama to cancel the attack.

Even non-experts can see that there are big holes in the case for sarin that make the rush-to-judgment highly suspicious.

Despite evidence to the contrary, Western politicians and press accepts and repeats the US government claim that the Syrian government attacked with sarin gas.  The US government claims they have signals intelligence (SIGINT) that proves that the Syrian government used sarin gas – but they won’t release it. A similar SIGINT claim after the 2013 Ghouta attack was also debunked.

Appropriate response?
Sober analysis is ignored. Righteous indignation is viewed as preaching to the choir.  Attacking Trump (the person) is futile – part of a President’s role is to be a lightening rod.  To get the attention of the many who are ‘asleep’ requires mockery and derision.  After the Vietnam War made everyone skeptical of the Government, we saw much more of that.  People have become lax.  But a new generation of artists is already at working at raising consciousness once again.  In their own way. Artists like photographer and political satarist WilliamBanzai7.

Note: I struggled over who the protagonists in the sketch should be.  In the end I chose to keep CIA/Al Queda because it comes closest to the absurdities so well.
