ITV Documentary “Exposure: Gaddafi & the IRA” Used Footage From Videogames
Here’s an upload of a video from Monday night's ITV documentary about Colonel Gaddafi’s supposed support of the IRA. It contains shocking footage of a helicopter being shot down using weapons allegedly supplied by the Libyan baddie to the IRA baddies.
Except of course, it’s actually from a video game “ArmA 2″.
The first episode of Exposure, which was watched by 1.3 million viewers, examined the relationship between the former Libyan dictator and the IRA.
The shaky camera footage, captioned “IRA film 1988″ showed a helicopter being shot down accompanied by a voiceover: “With Gaddafi’s heavy machine guns it was possible to shoot down a helicopter as the terrorists’ own footage of 1988 shows.”
“This was what the security forces feared most,” said the voiceover. “It may have been a lucky hit, but for the army and crew once was enough. No one died in this attack.”
Words absolutely fail me.
ITV have been caught absolutely red handed in fabricating propaganda to promote Britain’s farcical role as co-cheerleader (along with mini Napoleon Psychozy) for the war over Libya’s natural resources.
If you’re looking for the footage in the documentary in the ITV player – I would tell you where to go and watch it (the footage is in place from 28 minutes, 20 seconds) but being rumbled, ITV have pulled their war profiteering propaganda.
William Hague has already stated that Britain “won’t be left behind” in getting its share of contracts in Libya, with David Cameron chipping in, saying the UK will “play its part”.
The official aim of the “Friends of Libya” summit was to split up the mineral wealth and the reconstruction (of all the areas blown up by NATO, UK & France) contracts, in essence expropriating Libyan wealth by other means.
We’ve seen all the “reconstruction” projects in Afghanistan & Iraq right?
The infrastructure destroyed by the Americans & British in their illegal invasion means Iraq has massive shortfalls of electricity, with blackouts being common.
The money earmarked for reconstruction?
$6.6 Billion - the US government’s auditing department have declared as being stolen.
Add into the mix that the real power-broking was happening behind the scenes to carve up Libya, with UK oil firms pressing William Hague to get them the juiciest fruits from the Libyan tree.
Is Gaddafi a mad man?
Of course he is; if a man coins the phrase “Allah, Muammar & Libya only” you know he’s a little bit special.
Then again Robert Mugabe isn’t that far off…nor is our favourite North Korean Kim Jong-Il, but guess what, those countries don't have any mineral wealth or a strategic advantage that we need, so we leave them alone.
OIL – Operation Invade Libya, it’s always been about oil.
That’s why the CIA sent 1500 'Al Qaeda' fighters from Afghanistan to Libya & why regime change was needed – OIL!
That’s why the mass media produce propaganda like ITV1′s 'Exposure Gaddafi & the IRA', to reinforce their message as to why it’s necessary to blow up another country, so the people don't know the real reasons why in 20 years time a Libyan wants to attack the UK; it has nothing to do with the BS notion of “freedom and democracy”, but the war, murder and theft that was committed in the name of the citizens of the UK, by our government.
This is what our soldiers are dying for, there is no noble cause, there are no ideals you are defending. British soldiers are finally getting the picture that it’s all “about strategic influence; economics & mineral wealth”.
It is in the interests of multinational corporations that will lobby the government, and if not, the ruling government, then its political rivals who will drop their pants and bend over to the same corporate & media leeches that will back them into getting into Downing Street.
It’s cost us, the taxpayer, more than £1.75bn to bomb Libya, at a time where government spending is being slashed left, right and centre; but they can still fund highly dubious acts of aggression abroad.
Now that’s a freedom and democracy that I never voted for.
