(Years ago Walter Lippmann posted a defense of the Burmese generals long before Aung San Suu Kyi took power. He claimed that because the military was cooperating with "socialist" China, we had to oppose the movement for democracy. Now that the democratic movement is in charge, the repression is directed against the Muslims. Since Lippmann and those who think like him are aligned with the Kremlin, it won't be long before they begin echoing Global Research.)

Aung San Suu Kyi blamed "terrorists" for sharing those photos today. It's "simply the tip of the iceberg of misinformation," she said in a Facebook post, "with the aim of promoting the interests of terrorists," an unsurprising goal for misinforming terrorists. The dull math of a war on a terror (them vs us = whose side are you on?) does not allow for much artistic freelancing, so redundancy may be excused.

Russian state media, representing a government that sells arms to Myanmar, appears to just be repeating stock footage. According to Sputnik and RT, George Soros, the billionaire financier, is the wealthy Jew behind this new war, apparently in search of another bloody pipeline - mirroring the conspiratorial explanation for revolution-turned-war in Syria. On Global Research, a pro-Russia Infowars for a conspiracy-mongering left, one may read that "Saudi jihadists" are behind the crisis.
