The world is thick with propaganda as the Russia-Ukraine war moves into its next phase.
The United States and United Kingdom has been promoting absolutely insane media morasses of muck while working with the Ukraine to make every General in Kiev suddenly seem to have a last name of “Patton” or “Rommel.”
Russia has been guilty of this also, painting life inside Moscow as a paradise while shortages of common consumer goods continues to expand as the sanctions start to hit home.
The truth is always the first casualty in war and this time is no different.
This afternoon, “unidentified U.S. officials” are claiming that Russia is asking China for military help in the Ukraine war. The “leak” was given to the I guess ‘formerly’ realistic and reliable Financial Times of London:
The most, and I do emphasize, unbelievable excerpt:
Russia has asked China for military equipment to support its invasion of Ukraine, according to US officials, sparking concern in the White House that Beijing may undermine western efforts to help Ukrainian forces defend their country.
US officials told the Financial Times that Russia had requested military equipment and other assistance since the start of the invasion. They declined to give details about what Russia had requested. Another person familiar with the situation said the US was preparing to warn its allies, amid some indications that China may be preparing to help Russia.
Other US officials have said there were signs that Russia was running out of some kinds of weaponry as the war in Ukraine extends into its third week. The White House did not comment.
All of the bold comments in italics are mine. For effect.
Now read this story and notice again, what I have put into bold and italics (via CNBC March 7, 2022):
The United States is collecting evidence of possible war crimes, human rights abuses and violations of international law by Russia during its ongoing invasion of Ukraine, a National Security Council spokesperson told NBC News on Monday.
“We are appalled by Russia’s brutal tactics and the rising number of innocent civilians who have been killed in Russian strikes, which have reportedly hit schools, hospitals, kindergartens, an orphanage, residential buildings and those fleeing through humanitarian corridors,” the NSC spokesperson told NBC News.
“We are collecting evidence of possible war crimes, human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law,” they said. “We support accountability using every tool available, including criminal prosecutions where appropriate.”
Weird. It’s almost as if it is a pre-programmed, formatted template for use to adapt to any story about America’s enemies.
Just like this one, again, from the Financial Times on August 27, 2021:
The US has carried out a drone strike against an Isis-K “planner” in eastern Afghanistan, in its first move to retaliate against the terrorist group for its deadly attack on Kabul airport on Thursday.
According to US Central Command on Friday night, American forces conducted an “over-the-horizon counter-terrorism operation” in Nangarhar province of the country. //“Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties,” a spokesperson said. The strike by the US follows Joe Biden’s vow on Thursday to “hunt down” and punish members of the Isis-K terrorist group, after a suicide bombing on Kabul airport that claimed scores of lives including 13 members of the American military.
The US move came in the wake of new warnings from top American security officials that another terror attack in Kabul is likely, just days ahead of Tuesday’s deadline for withdrawing forces from Afghanistan.
Other than that senile old fool, no one wanted to or was required to go on to the record.
Until they had to (via CNN on September 17, 2021):
The bottom line? General Frank McKenzie, a US four star general, was made the patsy. This wasn’t an attack on ISIS or terrorist elements. It was a deliberate distraction to give President Biden the appearance of resolve or toughness to cover up for the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Number of “war crimes” trials to date:
Zero Point Zero.
General McKenzie will be forced to suffer for his humiliating televised admission to cover for the Biden Junta and endure a $237,144 annual pension. Some punishment, eh?
So when one starts to consider the blather from unnamed sources about atrocities committed by Russian forces during a total war, remember this story:
Seven children were killed by US taxpayer dollars to cover for Joe Biden’s sagging poll numbers and inept bureaucrats who made horrible decisions leading to 13 US service members being killed.
Then ask yourself this key question:
IF the United States government is willing to lie to the American people about the Wuhan Flu, actual war crimes the US has committed, the financial situation of our nation, who is to blame about inflation, and January 6th, why wouldn’t they lie about Russian or Ukrainian atrocities that happen during a Total War?
For the record, I am not supporting either side. But you will never believe that if you believe the censors running Big Tech and the West now.
