This election has shown me that there is a new “group think” in DC…..daily the media is pushing the story that Russia is the same out of control bear that it was during the Cold War…..and everyone is buying into the propaganda….
Look at today….we are told that our intel gatherers have high confidence that Russia is behind the DCCC hack attack…..my question is…is this the same high confidence that we had on Iraq’s WMDs?
Not since the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq has Official Washington’s political/punditry class clamored more single-mindedly – and openly – for the U.S. government to commit a gross violation of international law, now urging a major military assault on the government of Syria while also escalating tensions with nuclear-armed Russia.
And, like the frenzied war fever of 2002-2003, today’s lawless consensus is operating on a mix of selective, dubious and false information – while excluding from the public debate voices that might dare challenge the prevailing “group think.” It’s as if nothing was learned from the previous disaster in Iraq.
After the lies told by the government since 1960’s….I remain leery of their “findings”…..they will lie and deceive to get what they want…..and what they want these days is an enemy Russia.
The idea of an “enemy” is nothing new…..the stretch and the push on Russia is…..to the point that ISIS and the War on Terror has taken a backseat….that is until there is another attack and then it will be full tilt boogie against ISIS….
