RUSSIA UNDER ATTACK
Whatever excuses America and Britain might use there can be no denying that they are doing their utmost to denigrate and destroy Russia’s president and system of governance. They may lie about much, but this fact is undeniable. And they are using every means at their disposal to achieve their goal.
In an age of many threats they choose war and subversion over any diplomatic pathway to greater understanding and a resolution of issues. Their claims to be civilized powers seeking peace and harmony ring distinctly hollow in the face of their constant aggression towards Russia.
Of course they will say that Russia and the Russian president have done heinous deeds, terrible things and a litany of evil has poured from them. However, whatever they have done, and I leave it to you to decide, how do these “awful deeds” compare with the recent track record of their accusers?
Perhaps you will forgive a short recital of the interventions, invasions and interference that the American and British political elites find so easily to forgive themselves?
Truly, it is only necessary to mention the name of a single nation to put all Russia’s seemingly nefarious deeds to shame. That word is Iraq. Whether tens or hundreds of thousands died is not the point, even a thousand dying is far too many when their deaths took place due to lies.
An illegal attack and an illegal invasion took place, primarily fomented via the deceptions of George W. Bush, Anthony Blair and a large cast of other enthusiastic deceivers adamant that they knew the obvious truth of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. Those ‘obvious truths’ that were shown to be a mirage of manipulation, a facade of fictions and a license to commit mass murder.
How does the evil done by America and Britain leading a convoy of puppet nations in Iraq compare with whatever the Russian president and his people did? What say you? Was whatever it was comparable in any way? Yet to hear America and British leaders speak today you might be forgiven for thinking that it was Russia that killed all those people in Iraq. And we needn’t even speak of Afghanistan, Libya, Syria or Yemen. We certainly needn’t reach back to Vietnam, nor further to the serial coups, assassinations and use of death squads in Latin America.
But no, all the above appear to be as nothing compared to what Russia did. And exactly what was that again. even if we have seen no evidence for it... who died exactly? Perhaps one man if we believe the story, and two more who nearly died. Oh and the stopping of its tracks of the USA using terrorist forces in Syria to bring a Caliphate into existence there. Wow. What horrendous deeds! “Russia did it!”
The refrain above was heard for four years solid. We were told U.S. democracy was the casualty... but somehow no evidence could be found after four years of searching. But Russia did it alright... you’ll find they are still saying that even without any proof to substantiate the claim. Any qualifying words such as ‘it is claimed’ or ‘perhaps’ were dropped as fast as lightening from newscasts. Russia interference became a fact sans facts.
All of the above is grist to the misinformation mill that grinds daily in the West, except for the exploit of the USA, UK and others... that side of the equation was written in invisible ink, soon forgotten, forgiven and virtually written out of history. Only one side of an extremely distorted history is to be told in the West, that of big bad old Russia, up to its usual tricks that its DNA makes inevitable, they are the eternal black hats to be gunned down by the white hats of the West. In true racist and xenophobic style in the familiar demonization mode the USA finds so very useful.
Despite the myriad crimes of America and Britain, leaders of the warmongering West, it must be Russia that we must all point at as global 'bad guy’, center of all threat, hungry to destroy the “noble” democracies who have just recently wiped the copious streams of blood from their hands. The cry is constant. “Look over there!” “Wolf!!!” “Wait, no, it’s a... bear!!!”
Russia is under attack... and will remain so by the West, again and again.
