Media Review: Behind The Narratives

Today, I will review for you some of the few stories, either top headlines on the screen and papers, or those ‘put away from the closer public eyes and interest’.

1. The Frenchies and Libya:

Today, we heard how the Frenchies are actually arming, or rather have been for sometime arming the rebels, tomorrow, or few days to come, you will no doubt, hear from the chicken-head, Mr. Hague, admitting of the same crime (British Admission). The story is all over the pages, here are some of the few for your convenience;

What the papers are not telling me and you, is that, a semi-brigade forces of the French Foreign Legions, (13e Demi-Brigade de Légion Étrangère, 13e DBLE), based in Djibouti (made famous by AWOL film of Jean-Claude Van Damme), has been conducting operations independently from the so-called ‘Libyan Rebels’ mostly under the blanket of darkness. This is within there operational capabilities, as a special command force, and supported by another, the fifth regiment, which is the Legion’s own special forces unit (This little snippet originates from a very reliable source).

Staying on Libya, US, might but unlikely, and just about, come in to bail-out the ‘little armies’ of the Anglo-Franco Aggressive Forces in Libya, as the Senate, apparently just gave the president a go ahead for ”deep involvement” in Libya; http://rt.com/news/senate-obama-military-libya/

2. Lagarde & The IMF:

Who really had any doubt of this outcome?

The lady is an absolute gem for ”political and market elites”. If Thatcher, is ”a lady not for turning”, Lagarde, is ”a lady for turning”. I bet any investigative reporter out there, if s/he is to get involve in searching for dirt on her, s/he wont come out empty handed.

Miss. Lagarde, in short, is the new breeds of ”political brands”, made, marketed and placed in leadership role by those in power behind global events.

3. Egyptians and The doubt of Revolution:

Well, I have always said that, no western state will allow a nation like Egypt to fall into the hands of those deemed undesirables, or uncontrollable, especially, with proximity to Jews of the Greater Palestine, the traditional role in the middle east and so forth. Hence this article from RT, http://rt.com/news/young-egyptians-new-protest/.

4. The Social Media Worthless Value:

You remember my argument that social media products, such as facebook, twitter, myspace, youtube etc, are worthless value, and of short lifespan, and thus, can only be of value as a short-term investment, or hold and sell within the period of three years (at one time, product life cycle was a decade or so in the 1990s, then in the early 2000s, it was reduced rapidly to five years, and today, it can be stated at least 2-3 years, as changes come and go).

Anyway, our vindicated argument comes from the sell of Myspace by the NewsCorp (that soon to be the master of the world, hahah) to a private investors (Timberlake or something, with an advertisement firm), the sell was, a fifth of the original from $400m something and sold for only $43m. What a Loss?

Hence, in short, my advise to close-friends on matter of wealth management strategies, that, with technological products, just buy and sell within a short period of hyped-enthusiasm for the product, and not buy-and-hold, or even long term selling approach.

4. The Iranian Economic Miracle (even under sanctions);

This story will never appear in the western media, as the aim is to undermine not praise, and here the link is from the economist, how Iranian economy is improving and growing even under harsh western sanctions. MMM?

Here is an interesting documentary for you;
