The corporate media cannot be trusted to report the true meaning of the reports they present/publish. Why?
They are solely owned by corporate America and report just what these companies want us to know….usually it is a bastardization of what is truly happening in this country.
Take for instance what is happening in this country as I type.built approval from the public.
I give you the mash-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003….and the lies that the MSM help to spread that won public approval for the invasion.
George W Bush told Tony Blair he did not know who would replace Saddam Hussein in Iraq when they toppled him and that he “did not much care”, according to an explosive top secret account of the meeting seen by Middle East Eye.
The former US president was blithe about the consequences of launching an invasion at a crucial meeting with the British prime minister at his Texas ranch in 2002, almost a year before the war was launched.
“He didn’t know who would take Saddam’s place if and when we toppled him. But he didn’t much care. He was working on the assumption that anyone would be an improvement,” the British memo, written by Blair’s top foreign policy adviser at the time, reads.
Bush believed – but the memo says he would not say publicly – that a “moderate secular regime” in post-Saddam Iraq would have a favourable impact both on Saudi Arabia – a close US ally – and Iran.
This is the full text of the memo between Bush and Blair….
I offer that up because of the announcement from the State Department on the Russian presence on the Ukrainian border…..
The US says Russia is so bent on invading Ukraine that it’s cooking up a phony reason to justify it. In other words, Moscow is allegedly working on a “false-flag” mission. “We have information that indicates Russia has already prepositioned a group of operatives to conduct a false-flag operation in eastern Ukraine,” an anonymous US official tells the Washington Post. “The operatives are trained in urban warfare and in using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against Russia’s own proxy-forces.” All of which could lead to a Russian invasion later this month or in February. Other big outlets, including the AP, are quoting the same official. The development comes amid high tensions: Russian troops are massed on the Ukraine border, and talks between Russia and the West to defuse the situation have gone nowhere. More:
- ‘Dead end’ talks: “The drumbeat of war is sounding loud and the rhetoric has gotten rather shrill,” says Michael Carpenter, the US ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The organization held talks in Vienna on Thursday, but Russian diplomats later declared them to be at a “dead end,” per Axios. “It seems the risk of war in the OSCE area is now greater than ever before in the last 30 years,” agreed Zbigniew Rau, the Polish chairman of the group.
- US role: If Russia does invade, the New York Times reports that the US might fund an insurgency, essentially a “guerrilla war against Russian military occupation.” After such an invasion, “US and NATO military assistance—intelligence, cyber, anti-armor and anti-air weapons, offensive naval missiles—would ratchet up significantly,” James Stavridis, a retired Navy admiral and former supreme allied commander at NATO, tells the newspaper. “And if it turned into a Ukrainian insurgency, Putin should realize that after fighting insurgencies ourselves for two decades, we know how to arm, train, and energize them.”
- Familiar: White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters that Russia similarly conducted a false-flag operation before its annexation of Crimea, reports the AP. “We saw this playbook in 2014,” says Sullivan. “They are preparing this playbook again.” The US also says Moscow is infiltrating Ukrainian social media to “fabricate Ukrainian provocations,” another tactic used in 2014.
Keep in mind the some of the most successful war profiteers are the corporations that own our news outlets.
