I completely agree that most people are desensitize to violence because of the amount with which we are bombarded.
HOWEVER, when it involves children and they constantly shove it down the public's throat (which could be a reason why the have to constantly show it,
for increased effect BECAUSE we are so desensitized AND because people these day very quickly forget). A politician can say one thing one day and the
complete opposite the next and NO ONE hardly remembers.
People do not take likely to children being killed (especially if they are American children), that's why it's not just a bunch of innocent people
were gassed it's "The innocent CHILDREN were gassed. Oh, and by the way, look at them dying. How can you not want to do something?"
That's the deal, desensitization or not, let's show it 24.7 until you're calling for heads.
Actually, psychological research says that the more they show it, the less it will affect people.
One poster summed it up nicely when he/she said "I've seen worse on sy-fy channel.
When blood and gruesome vomit and foaming become commonplace as they are on video games, in the horror movies and even on TV. They lose their impact,
even when the real life victims are children. The blood and guts in the media have become so "real" that the actual real loses it's impact to
create empathy or even outrage.
Remember the pictures of starving children in Africa with flies around their heads? Those commercials shown over and over also desensitized the
people in the US. Occasionally we see one of those types of commercials today, but because they actually backfired, the norm today is to show a
healthier, "saved" child, which has more impact.
Whoever is advising the Obama administration that showing these videos will work does not have a background in psychological manipulation.
To get "the people" to change their minds and "congress" to change their minds the psychological manipulation will need to hit home or wallets in
a concrete way that is actually seen or experienced by "the people".
Therefore, the general fear on ATS of a false flag. There is a general unconscious understanding that it would take a FF to actually get that many
people to change their minds on the issue.
So, I for one am far more worried about a false flag actually being manufactured once the administration realizes their psychological warfare
If a major event does occur, I for one will not be quick to blame the Syrians or Iranians, but will want solid evidence and even then have trouble
believing the evidence is not contrived.
