Twitter And The Middle East

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am very dubious about what is going on in the Middle East. Gaddafi giving his troops Viagra so that they can go out and rape the populace? Do me a favour. Who then, while his troops are busy forcing themselves on the women of Libya, is actually killing the men women and children we read about in the next news story about Libya? I've no doubt Gaddafi and his troops are committing barbaric acts, and that the man is mad, but let's keep a sense of proportion.

Now it has come to light that the lesbian supposedly kidnapped by Syrian security forces, was actually a fat bloke with a beard in Edinburgh who claims to be an expert on the Middle East. Yes, he produced a fake identity, and the gullible of the world were getting all excited at how this poor defenceless girl had been abducted by the evil Syrians for complaining about them on Twitter and 'her' blog.

So all the mugs who foolishly thought they were witnessing the uprising in Egypt first hand, because they were following it on Twitter, might like to be a bit more reticent in future before slagging off the more cynical who are less easily fooled. Remember, young Haji fighting for freedom in  Al-Hasakah, might just be a fat cockney in a Wetherspoon's in East London taking the piss.
