You think ISIS is Fake. Simple. Go to Syria, go into the desert and record for the rest of us that ISIS is not there...!! Prove it or shut the hell up..!!
I think the OP said that ISIS is a fake threat. I don't feel threatened by ISIS over there, but the media sure acts like I should be worried about them. So yeah, fake threat. Like Ebola. I am sure that I could get it if I went to an African hotspot and took a bath in vomit and fesces, but realistically, it's not a threat.
Anyone who believes that ISIS and any other terror organisation is simply a fake "wag the dog", entity made up by the MSN is a complete moron and needs to seek help from a mental professional for severe conspiracy paranoia.
Anyone that thinks that was the exact message from the op is not very smart either.

This is a "must see" video. I haven't got much to say about it, except it proves what we here at ATS already knew about how the powers that be and the media fake things to steer the sheeple in the direction they want. Now they have been busted! Ha Ha!!!!

So what if you see Japanese, American and German vehicles on the news? To you they're all US commodities? Thats the dumbest thing I've read all day. What do the Saudi's drive? What do the Turks drive?
They're all examples of "our luxury" what's that supposed to mean? No points for guessing what country you're from.
What would be more convincing to you? Let me guess, they all should be riding donkeys and camels.
You think you've got it all figured out, let me tell you....you don't.

RT calling out Western media outlets for propaganda by using Infowars and speculation.
There's no doubt that something was up with the initial interview with the woman. But everything else was mostly speculation.
They claim that activists and Western news outlets are engaging in propaganda-like actions relating to chemical weapons, but then cite an intelligence official as saying that all the chemical attacks are from jihadists.
They cite a blog and a blogger in their attack against the BBC, and call Robert Stuart an investigator. The blog has no biographical information on Stuart, and while he has seemed to have done some investigations into the incident, his opinions are no more valid than yours or mine. And while i dislike the BBC, their responses to Stuart's assertions do seem mostly adequate and well-grounded. You can see it all on his blog:
And finally, RT is Russian state owned, and therefore has clear conflicts of interests as well, in reporting on Syria and Ukraine, two countries shown in the video, and two countries in which Russia is intervening.
I have no doubt that a lot of main-stream media outlets engage in a form of manipulation or propaganda. Hell, i've seen better evidence of it. But i think this video deserves criticism. A respectable news outlet shouldn't cite a conspiracy news website and a blog as sources. And they shouldn't be speculating. They should have consulted all parties first-hand.

big business, western governments and their puppets in the ME all controlled by a worldwide banking cartel. The trucks are new, as was ISIS a few weeks back.

You know I agree that ISIS really isn't as big a deal as the media is making them out to be (especially in the regard that they will never be a threat to mainland America), but I DON'T for a second think that they aren't a threat period. They certainly are a legitimate threat in the Syria and Iraq. Your thread is just substituting propaganda for propaganda. "I don't like this lie, so I'm going to believe this lie instead."
