Libya, ISIS, media sensationalism and lies and the new secret police in Canada

Of course the news media in Canada cynically post all the evils done by ISIS while ignoring that it was the overthrow of Kaddafi by the West in Libya, using the usual sensationalism and lies (mass rapes etc) by Kaddafi to justify their intervention. Now, as Medialens shows, so clearly (see link below) the media and gov’ts of the West ignore the complete armed anarchy that exists in Libya which provided, along with an Iraq destabalized by the West, the conditions for ISIS’s rise. In essence the West is responsible for ISIS as they were for Al Qaeda. But the Western media will not provide any substantive analysis of this responsibility. Rather, they use “barbaric” images and actions of ISIS to help gov’ts such as Harper’s strip privacy rights and impose new secret police in their own countries.
