EXCERPT: Iran's semi-official news outlets have something of a reputation for taking conspiracy theorism to the next level. They've written on Israel's secret plans to annex Iraq, the conspiracy by Western media to fabricate quotes by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani condemning the Holocaust and the secret Jewishness of the British royal family. You may notice a certain theme here
On Sunday, the hard-line semi-official Fars News dropped one of its biggest bombshells yet: The United States government has been secretly run by a "shadow government" of space aliens since 1945. Yes, space aliens. ...This is all asserted as incontrovertible fact with no caveats.
The old cliche goes " birds of a feather flock together."
The above could easily have come from SANA or the Russian Times or (gasp) Amir for Secular Democracy. Some folks just go gaga over conspiracy theories. All you gotta do is start one. If folks don't agree you can always use logic of this sort: "You can't prove America is not run by Nazi space aliens...THEREFORE...it must be true (with emphasis on "must.") Of course it is impossible to prove the negative so you can't lose.
Further updates on Syria in the morning (pacific time) if I' ,m not to busy. Got lots to do.
