The Western Propaganda War on Myanmar

March 1, 2021 (Brian Berletic - LD) - In this video I discuss the propaganda war being waged by the Western media on Myanmar - how much of the media cited is funded by the US government via the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). 


I also describe how even media in Thailand is heavily influenced by Western propaganda - repeating conspiracy theories spun by “institutes” funded by Western weapons manufacturers trying to implicate China as being behind the new government - while ignoring documented evidence of US government support for opposition groups opposed to the new government.

Violent US-backed Hong Kong-Style Mobs in Thailand Continue

March 1, 2021 (Brian Berletic - LD) - US-backed anti-government protesters in Thailand have once again "rebranded" to shake off the image of an unpopular, violent mob only to stage a poorly attended, extremely violent protest as their first "rally." 


I explain how this is part of a wider US plan to create a  regional crisis to deny China Southeast Asia as a viable economic, military, and political partner and how US-funded Thai opposition groups are working with US-funded protesters in Myanmar.

US NED 2021 - Thailand: More Money, More Sedition

February 28, 2021 (Brian Berletic - LD) - The US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has updated its list for programs, organizations, and companies that it is funding in Thailand to interfere in Thailand's internal political affairs. This includes US government funding for companies that interfered in Thailand's 2019 general election. 



I explain how the NED's board of directors is made up of people who promote wars and regime change merely behind the smokescreen of "promoting democracy" and "freedom." I show which fronts the US has increased funding for as well as new fronts the US is now funding inside of Thailand. 

I also show how the US NED through programs and companies that it funded interfered in Thailand's 2019 general election on behalf of the US-backed billionaire opposition leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit and his "Future Forward Party."

Thailand to Regulate Abusive Foreign-Funded NGOs

February 28, 2021 (Brian Berletic - LD) - US government-funded fronts posing as NGOs in Thailand have long undermined the image and role of legitimate nongovernmental organizations.   


New legislation has been proposed in Thailand to create more transparency regarding the foreign funding of NGOs in Thailand and to regulate their activities to ensure they fall within the real of non-profit organizations working for the public benefit rather than abusive fronts merely posing as such.

Biden's First Foreign Policy Speech Vows Forever Wars

February 27, 2021 (Brian Berletic - NEO) - US foreign policy has clearly continued in the same direction, without missing a beat. Unlike in previous transitions in the White House, this time US President Joe Biden has not even really tried to promise even the faintest hope that it wouldn't. 


There were a few glimpses of remote hope - particularly regarding the possibility the US wouldn't abandon its last arms treaty with Russia, New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) - and Biden's promise of returning to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran Nuclear Deal. 

However, in Biden's first speech regarding foreign policy since taking office, now posted on the White House's official website and titled, "Remarks by President Biden on America’s Place in the World," reveals that, if anything, US belligerence on the global stage is set to only expand. 

"America is back.  Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy." 

Biden's opening remarks attempt to suggest that America has drifted away under his predecessor US President Donald Trump. But when he says "America is back," we are left to assume he means "back" to what the US was doing under the administration of US President Barack Obama under which he served as vice president. 

This was a president elected into office by the American people to end the wars of his predecessor, US President George W. Bush. Not only did he fail to end those wars - one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan - he expanded both. He also started several new wars including in Libya, Syria, and Yemen. 

Under the administration of Obama-Biden, the US also overthrew the government of Ukraine in 2014 precipitating deadly violence in the nation's eastern region. 

Obama also continued Bush-era policies aimed at overthrowing the government of Venezuela and instituted the so-called US "pivot" to Asia in which US meddling was expanded in a bid to peel Southeast Asian states away from China's orbit - or create an arc of chaos to disrupt China's rise, trying. 

And in Biden's recent foreign policy speech - he has vowed to continue all of this.
