In the case of radio and television, propaganda can exist on news, current-affairs or talk-show segments, as advertising or public-service announce "spots" or as long-running advertorials. Propaganda campaigns often follow a strategic transmission pattern to indoctrinate the target group. This may begin with a simple transmission such as a leaflet dropped from a plane or an advertisement.

A number of techniques based in social psychological research are used to generate propaganda. Information dissemination strategies only become propaganda strategies when coupled with propagandistic messages. Specific techniques[edit] Big Lie.

Manifest destiny. In the 19th century, Manifest Destiny was the widely held belief in the United States that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent.

Manifest destiny

Historians have for the most part agreed that there are three basic themes to Manifest Destiny: Unilateralism. Unilateralism is any doctrine or agenda that supports one-sided action.


Such action may be in disregard for other parties, or as an expression of a commitment toward a direction which other parties may find agreeable. Unilateralism is a neologism which is already in common use; it was coined to be an antonym for multilateralism, which is the doctrine which asserts the benefits of participation from as many parties as possible. The two terms together can refer to differences in foreign policy approached to international problems. When agreement by multiple parties is absolutely required—for example, in the context of international trade policies—bilateral agreements (involving two participants at a time) are usually preferred by proponents of unilateralism.

Unilateralism may be preferred in those instances when it's assumed to be the most efficient, i.e., in issues that can be solved without cooperation. Unilateralism by country[edit] United Kingdom[edit] United States[edit] References[edit] Yemeni Crisis (2011–present) The wave of protests known as the Arab Spring did not take long to arrive in Yemen after the Tunisian Revolution.

Yemeni Crisis (2011–present)

Yemen was a poor country with a government widely acknowledged to be corrupt, with a large amount of weapons in private hands. By 2011, the country was already facing challenges from al Qaeda-linked militants and separatists in the south and Zaydi Shia rebels in the north. Yemen had only been unified since 1990, and deep divisions persisted between the north and south. Yemen's political instability has been compounded and partly caused by the severe ecological crisis in the country. Yemen's political crisis began in 2011, amid the Arab Spring and the ongoing Houthi insurgency. The Gulf Co-operation Council applied no small amount of pressure on Saleh to negotiate an end to the uprising by stepping down.[24] Weeks after returning from Saudi Arabia, Saleh finally agreed on 23 November to resign in exchange for immunity.

Syria: Proxy war, not civil war

The regime's response towards the uprising has been incomprehensible and horrific, and to date has resulted in the killing of more than 200 thousand human lives, the displacement of more than 8 million, and the destruction of the country's history and infrastructure. It is undeniable that the conflict in Syria has escalated to a war; a war, however, that is not a civil war nor one driven by the Syrians. The conflict in Syria is a multi-proxy war in which international, competing interests carry out their battles in Syria, demolishing the country's hope of establishing a democratic state free of dictatorship. Months after the revolution sparked, the government's only reaction was to kill and detain protesters, promoting the motto of "Assad forever".
