The stink of rotting fish is permeating the mainstream news

Can you smell it, that distinctive miasma of rotting marine life, the kind of thing you only expect to get a whiff of in fish markets around The Mediterranean on hot summer days. Strangely it seems to be everywhere.

Do you smell it yet?

Today the news is full of the Israeli assault on Gaza. Israel’s armed forces have invaded Palestinian territory with tanks under cover of aerial bombardment of Gaza’s shanty towns by missiles and airborne assaults. It has been going on for a few days, well over a week if we are being honest.

Do we hear screams of protest from the Obama, stern condemnation from Cameron, does Hollande remove his lips from the nipple of his latest mistress long enough to express outrage? No, the mealy mouthed equivocal comments we hear seem to suggest that the Palestinians should surrender and agree to all Israeli demands including granting the Israelis the right to kick the crap out of Palestine any time they feel like it.

In fact it is only outrage in the blogosphere that has woken up mainstream media, where most of the luvvieocracy have been happy to suck up to The White House and Whitehall by calling for the head of Vladimir Putin by way of retribution for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

In spite of all the inconsistencies surrounding that story and the question everybody is asking but nobody wants to answer, WTF was a civilian passenger flight doing on a route that took it over a conflict zone, all the luvvieocracy want to talk about is the “compelling evidence” that pro Russian separatists acting on direct order from Putin. This compelling evidence seems to be that a bloke on combat fatigues who carries an AK47 everywhere told a reporter that a Russian bloke in a self propelled SAM launcher drove up and said, “My name is Putin, I want you to use this fully armed bit of kit to shoot down the next passenger aircraft that flies over.” Well OK, I’m paraphrasing a bit.

Final moments of Flight MH17 – The Russian Version Of The Story

So while the luvvieocracy have been running round like headless chickens trying to find a way to blame Putin for the Flight MH17 outrage, the Israelis have as usual been getting a free pass to slaughter Palestinians. (Read more at BBC News)

So if we join up the dots the picture that emerges is somewhat confused, if fact all that emerges with any clarity is that for those who had an interest in diverting attention from what was happening in Gaza (i.e. Israel and its only international ally, the USA) a major disaster such as the shooting down of Flight 17 could not have happened at a more convenient time. If you know what I mean.

Now do you smell the rotting fish.
