In this short video clip from FOX News, two astounding pieces of propaganda are put forward. The first is ..

the claim that the United States is the only nation with the "moral authority" to wage pre-emptive war on the rest of the world, because (according to FOX) the US is NOT seeking hegemony. Apparently, invading ten countries on two continents arises only out of the most humanitarian motives! This comment appears to be the Americanized version of Ariel Sharon's infamous quote, "Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial."

But the second comment, that Iran should be annihilated, deserves to be reposted all over the net!

Remember back when it was alleged that Ahmadinejad had said he would "wipe Israel off of the map?" ABCNNBBCBSFOX made a huge uproar over what a monstrous thing that was to say, ignoring the fact that Shimon Peres had been saying the same thing about Iran all along. As it turns out, what Ahmadinejad actually said was that Israel would, because of its own faults, vanish from the pages of history (which many observers agree with) which is not quite the same as calling for its destruction. The skewed translation had been provided to ABCNNBBCBSFOX by MEMRI, a suspected Israeli intelligence operation and the American media, long bribed by Israel to bias the news in their favor repeated the misquote without question, then soundly condemned Iran and Ahmadinejad for that statement.

So now we have FOX News calling for Iran to be annihilated. Not just Ahmadinejad, not just Khamenei, not just Iran's army, but everything and everyone in that nation, which has not actually attacked us! Why? Because according to FOX, they are all "lunatics". Perhaps, in appropriate homage to their ideological roots, they should use the word 'Untermenschen'!

So where is the firestorm of protest when a man gets up on TV and calls for an entire nation to be erased from the face of the Earth, which is what annihilation really means? It seems there is a double standard in the American media; condemnation when Ahmadinejad is merely rumored to have called for another nation to be erased from the face of the Earth, but when Tucker Carlson actually says it in a language we can all understand, there is no protest at all, indeed we see agreement from the faces around him on FOX!
