I frequently reference, in my political discussions, the simplest yet most affective form of propaganda. Although such a primitive trick would seem ineffective it’s not hard to imagine how and why the slight of hand goes unabridged. How, you ask? Well, ask your neighbor to find Iran on a map. The afore mentioned trick – calling anything under the sun Al-Qaeda. Examples:

  • Shi’ite (the opposite of Sunni-based-Al-Qaeda) restitance to occupation
  • Insurgent response to attacks by real Sunni Groups – funded by America
  • People who don’t pay taxes
  • The reason your car broke down

Although I am not the first or only person to report on this little mishap, I fear that it – for the most part – will go unnoticed. Want proof? Ask your neighbor to find Afghanistan on a map.
