We are seeing a lots of these articles recently. Basically they are highlighting hypocrisy. A question has to be asked though. Why do we not see so many of these articles damning US hypocrisy every time it complains about another country's actions?
- "US accuses Syria of using chemical weapons, ignores its own."
The article could include US use of White Phosphorus in Falluja.
- "US targets terrorists in Afghanistan, ignores it's own terrorism."
The article could cover the US being condemned by the World Court for it's terrorist acts against Nicaragua in 1986. US involvement in the Beirut car bombing in 1985. etc
In fact, you do see flurries of this kind of article in response to US actions/accusations, but not in the US media. Media is hardly ever objective in its reporting. It's why foreign protesters are celebrated, but home-grown protesters are condemned/marginalised. It's why newspapers demanded to know what right Russia had to force civilians to leave Grozny, but remained silent over Fallujah.
When you flip things around like this, the current articles stick out like a sore thumb.
