MSM ignores Navy’s entrance into Iranian waters

If you watched the mainstream media’s coverage of Iran’s capture of American Navy sailors, one would think that these sailors were snatched out of their beds somewhere in middle America and were not engaged in a hostile action, says journalist and author Max Blumenthal of Alternet. CNN repeatedly covered the story without mentioning the sailors were in Iranian waters, Blumenthal tells RT’s Ashlee Banks.

    Pause at exactly 5.07. Doesn't the commando's gun look like paintball guns? Where was the other footage shot from, and why weren't they boarded also? Looks fishy to me. But anything that Israel does is fishy!

    Max Blumenthal is amazing. He supports his argument with concrete facts and data, sticks to his guns, and has the backbone to confront the villains of this world. When ever I hear people speaking poorly of Americans, I want to remind them that we have some strong, moral, justice-driven folks, like Max, in this country too…we aren't all brainwashed neo-cons. I think RT should give him his own show. Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the rest of the maniacal regimes that don't respect humanity need to be exposed on a daily basis….people have to see what they aren't seeing on CNN or Fox News.

    Fuck that if we didn't have such a pussy president that would never happen. I hope we do go to Iran and the whole middle east when we get a real president in office. Try that shit with the Marines, there would of been no talk or surrender.

    The US MSM now appears to be trying to spin the story that the American government DEMANDED the release of their boats and sailors and Iran immediately complied to avoid the wrath of their great power.
    The truth appears to be that a group of incompetent sailors sailed into Iranian waters because they missed their refueling rendezvous point and ran out of gas. That makes sense because both boats were incapacitated. If one had a mechanical problem the other could have tossed them a line and towed them to their destination and no one would be talking about this. 
    Everyone is making a big deal about the sailors kneeling with their hands behind their heads. In the US a police officer will handcuff an unarmed civilian while searching them. Instead the Iranians found themselves facing – supposedly – highly trained and armed troops and inconvenienced them by having them kneel with their hands in plain view making sure that any weapons they had with them were secured. They then held the sailors while they investigated the situation, found they were just a bunch of doofuses who had screwed up, probably gave them some gas for their boats and released them.
    As Shakespeare said "Much ado about nothing." But the US feels they have to save face by spinning it and they see an opportunity to use this nonevent to further their narrative…once again.

    I'm sorry … this is very serious information.
    It's hard to take it seriously when the news anchor is questioning the guest with literally a
    "Hair hat" on the top of her head.

    That's damn pathetic.

    So if Israel didn't kill enough people for a war crime to take effect… What about Obama's 23,000 bombs dropped last year killing thousands of innocent civilians, That does not count as a war crime?

    MSM in the US and the EU are massively controlled and stories are cherry picked to fit the narrative.
    FACT.
    There is no free press if they can't air their stories.

    This country has planned to go to war with Iran for more than 10 years now. My favorite rap artist speaks on this over 5 years ago. They've planned things a head of time.

    You know all of these things are prophecied over 2000 years ago. Isreal will be attacked by majority of nations. U.S. will turn it's back in the nation. Russia and the U.S. will go to war. The bear of the north and the king of the south. America will completely change as it along with the British empire is the mystery Babylon. The kingdoms of the Earth will be didvided up into 10 kingdoms and then 4 ?. Someone will take the seat of the throne of Isreal. And all of this will happen before 2150. The end of this age and the beginning of the next.

    A false flag gone wrong. Im pretty sure the U.S psychopaths were expecting Iran to either bomb them or detain them longer.

    Ah Iran claims they were in Iranian waters. So that is the Gods honest truth.

    Wow talk about the MSM misreporting. Then your guest admits they were in international waters. Saying most Americans might believe they were in Peoria not international waters. I disagree I doubt any Americans think they were anywhere other than close to Iran.

    Even if they got into Iran waters by a few feet. So what. This is not the way to handle it. That Gulf is not that large. Iran does not own the Gulf it shares it with many nations. It is a bad player.

    What purpose would Obama have to do this? To send boats into Iran waters? Worst possible timing for the US. But a huge win for Iran.

    Come on this "Peace" Flotilla was illegally entering Israel waters and they shot at the soldiers trying to protect their waters. Some were wounded. Again you just take their word they were not shooting bullets instead of film. I do not buy it. There is no valid argument they had any right to enter Israel waters. Also soldiers are always armed. You make it out like they were something else. Shameful.

    RT also ignored that the Russian jet was violating Turkish Airspace and had received several warnings before it was shot.
