THE FOREVER WAR: HAS LOGIC BEEN ABANDONED ALONG WITH DIPLOMACY IN THE WEST?
You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to deduce certain clues regarding Russia in recent times.
If we take it as read that neither Vladimir Putin nor the Russian secret services are incompetent nor stupid then it should be possible to add one and one to make two in certain cases.
The cases we will explore here comprise separate occasions when it made no sense for what Russia is said to have done to actually have been done by Russia.
The most recent case concerns the Bucha and Kramatorsk atrocities of recent days.
Having taken it for granted that the Russian authorities are not willfully reckless, stupid or totally incompetent, along with an arguably strong case that they almost certainly care very much for Russia’s image in the world the contention that Russia perpetrated them appears not to make sense.
A very similar case is that of the supposed poisoning of the Skripals by Novichok and then not so very long after this failed case of poisoning the very same Novichok is used in a apparent attempt to kill Alexei Navalny. I should also add here that the Skripals case came just weeks before the Russian World Cup, not exactly an event likely to create good PR for the event. The main nonsensical element however is the use of the selfsame poison. Again, assuming neither Putin nor the Russian secret service are stupid or incompetent or uncaring of Russia’s reputation this should be considered extremely odd.
The missile that killed so many people in the railway station in Kramatorsk was one the Russian military no longer uses, however the Ukrainian military use it on a regular basis. In addition, there is mounting evidence from multiple witnesses that the extremist elements within the Ukrainian forces attacked and killed many of those attempting to flee Mariupol. Add to this the known fervent antipathy these extremists of western Ukraine view the entire civilian population of eastern Ukraine, they call them the pejorative term, ‘Moskals’, i.e. Russians and consider them with a level of derision where their lives are considered worthless. According to reports the missile that killed so many had an obscenity scrawled upon it concerning children.
It should also be well known by now that the Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine was mounted to save and protect the very people who were so callously and brutally murdered in Kramatorsk.
Does it make any sense that Russia would perpetrate not one but two separate atrocities and provide two consecutive propaganda coups (Bucha and Kramatorsk) for their enemy, the Kiev president and his regime?
These incidents are reminiscent of the claim that the Syrian government, about to win its decade-long war against West-backed terrorist forces initiated a chemical weapon attack on the town of Douma, providing a possibly conflict-changing coup to their enemies both within Syria itself and in the West?
Russia is accused of harming its image again and again just as the Syrian government is supposed to have risked everything it had fought for by a hail of missiles after crossing Barack Obama’s red lines concerning chemical weapons use.
There is something decidedly fishy about all this, would you not agree?
Without investigation Russia is assumed guilty. No evidence is supplied and all the available evidence indicates this is NOT the case.
Yet President Biden and every mainstream media news outlet across the West immediately say Russia did it. Just as we have been asked to believe Russia did almost everything that was negative for over a decade and a half now at least, we are expected to simply accept the word of Biden and the state-compliant mass media of the West.
Anyone with a modicum of intellect can tell something is very wrong in all this. Even a moderate level of insight should be able to see that Biden and co are adding one and one and arriving at the answer six.
Yet the facade of factuality is insisted upon, flying in the face of all common sense and logic.
It is almost as if all logic has disappeared across the elite western world along with any attempt at a nuanced approach, impartiality and least of all any attempt to seek peace through diplomacy. The only object of importance appears to be to create war, war and ever more war.
