Just a quick post today, a bit shorter than usual as I am busy with other things.
Moving away from the events in Amerika (yes I deliberately spelt it that way) I have been looking at news from various places. Something that always occurs to me is that the news is often so very similar, differing only in who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.
The following scenario’s have taken place or are taking place in various parts of the world. What I have done is removed any reference to names, places or nationalities.
Read them through; see if you can identify which each report refers to. Notice that the wording is very similar but some of these reports are listed in our news and reported by our leaders as being good things and some are said to be bad things.
Can you tell the difference?
Notes at the bottom list what each event refers to.
1A. Unofficial and official requests for addition munitions have been received by CENSORED. Due to the tempo of the military action by CENSORED, supplies of rockets, missiles and bombs have been reduced significantly. These requests have been agreed and CENSORED has made available the requested munitions along with bringing in additional stockpiles.
1B. Unofficial and official requests for addition munitions have been received by CENSORED. As a result of military action over the last few weeks the forces of CENSORED are reporting that reserves of munitions are running low and that they lack rockets, missiles and munitions to fight the superior forces of CENSORED. These requests have already been agreed to by CENSORED and CENSORED who are both making preparations to ship in stockpiles of weapons and munitions.
1C. Unofficial and official requests for addition munitions have been received by CENSORED. Despite numerous reports that this request has been met all evidence presented so far has been disproved and CENSORED officially denies that it is meeting this request.
1D. Unofficial and official requests for addition munitions have been received by CENSORED. Losses of equipment and weapons against CENSORED have been high and they are now reporting they lack the means to continue fighting against the forces of CENSORED who have been significantly strengthen by captured and purchased weapons and equipment. CENSORED have agreed to this and are increasing production of CENSORED specifically to mean this request.
2A. CENSORED provided extensive support in the form of finances, training by covert operatives and the direct and indirect provision of weapons. In addition other nations such as CENSORED and CENSORED have been providing funding to support the forces fighting CENSORED in CENSORED.
2B. The forces involved in the fighting against CENSORED have been receiving extensive support from CENSORED along with a number of nations in CENSORED and CENSORED. This has taken the form of both direct and indirct financial aid, training, weapons and other equipment and intelligence gathered by CENSORED via CENSORED. Direct intervention against CENSORED was considered but ultimately not carried out, support for indigenous forces on the ground was not affected by CENSORED and continues.
2C. Subsequent to the overthrow of CENSORED, forces loyal to the new administration have received extensive military aid in the form of weapons and equipment by CENSORED. Training in this new equipment and general military training for soldiers has been provided by CENSORED.
2D. Subsequent to the overthrow of CENSORED, forces in opposition to the new regime have been rumoured to have been receiving weapons and training by CENSORED. Reports and evidence of this have been either disproved or have not been proved to be accurate.
3A. The aircraft, with 290 people on board including 70 children was shot down by a ground to air missile fired by CENSORED. Initially the incident was denied, subsequently it has been called a misidentification. CENSORED awarded with medals. No official apology has ever been offered though some compensation has been paid.
3B. The aircraft, with 298 people on board including 80 children was shot down with a ground to air missile. Initial blame was directed at CENSORED along with significant initial evidence which has subsequently been discredited. CENSORED are still being blamed despite the lack of any evidence to that effect and ignoring a significant volume of missing data and evidence implicating CENSORED as being the real guilty party.
4A. Attacks by CENSORED resulted in the sinking of the vessel which was struck multiple times by surface to surface and air to surface weapons. 34 members of the ship’s crew were killed in this incident. The report was blamed on a mistaken identification of the vessel and compensation has been paid by CENSORED to CENSORED. Numerous reports exist that question the official story and claim this was a deliberate attack.
4B. The attack, launched by CENSORED left the vessel significantly damage but not in danger of sinking. 17 members of the ship’s crew were killed in this incident. CENSORED has claimed responsibility for the attack, no other agency has been blamed.
