Comedian Russell Brand talks about the push for military strikes on Syria and why he doesn't trust the government


Above, Russell Brand delivers yet another straight talk on government propaganda and lies, in this case around Syria, and why we should not trust governments claiming foreign countries have "morally unacceptable" weapons after Bush and Blair lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction to get us into Iraq.

As YouTube commenter "roman14032″ says, "we got REALLY, REALLY BIG PROBLEMS in our society when the most thoughtful and rational person in mass media or government is an ex-junkie comic."
