(OP ED NEWS) – An amazing if not disgusting piece of pro war propaganda invaded the television this morning from no less than CBS this morning. It is widely known that mainstream media is the military industrial complex 24 hour consent manufacturing machine and they are obligated to pull out the pom poms at the behest of warmongers like Bolton and Pompeo at a moment's notice. But the horrifying display I witnessed this morning, a public service ad for how comfortable we have made war was beyond anything in its level of obnoxious self serving praise I had ever seen before.
The segment showed US drones which fly over foreign lands around the globe, spreading fear and destruction and all to often, murdering civilians as it ostensibly fights the unending and nebulous "war on terror." If my terminology offends you I will offer as a defense that the drone, which the military prefers to be called a "remote controlled aircraft" is named "The Reaper." Yes. The drone is named after that feared bringer of death. But unlike the original, the tall robed figure who is pictured with a scythe, an instrument which implies the up close and personal taking of a soul, this technological marvel allows the bringing of death from thousands of miles away from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada.
