Just because we don't see it, doesn't exonerate us from complicity
This is just a small sample of what Channel 4 News, the BBC and the corporate owned media don't want you to see. Yet, most of us already know this is happening, but we choose not to be informed. That well known phrase, "Ignorance is Bliss" springs to mind.
Cameron had already been known for his extreme lack of morals, ethics and compassion. Yet, he had to demonstrate this almost ritualistic mantra to prove himself to his powerful paymasters, by his immediate timely visit to India soon after the general election of 2010. India's neighbour and enemy, Pakistan had just suffered devastating and catastrophic floods that took thousands of lives and displaced many more. Cameron immediately seized on this as an opportunity to blast Pakistan as a "Terrorist state", thus inducing a media blackout and lack of sympathy for the suffering people of Pakistan. Instead, the media chose to focus on the already established healthy well-being and high spirits of a bunch of trapped Chilean miners. Then afterwards, in what can only be interpreted as a final insult to injury, the media chose to cover a Pakistani cricketing scandal, while thousands were dying and in utter despair.
