After their total failure to blame eastern Ukrainian Rebels and Moscow for what appears to be Kiev forces shooting down Fight MH17 on July 17th, Washington and its NATO allies have shifted their propaganda strategy in a new attempt to implicate Russia for international war crimes…
Over the weekend, Washington used its US ambassador to the Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, to launch another fabricated social media post designed to blame Russia for “firing artillery over its border into the Ukraine”.
Twitter Bombed: Pyatt’s tweeting turned out to be a bad joke. It’s a wonder he still has a job.
Moscow’s Defense Ministry came out immediately to demonstrating that the images posted by Pyatt on his Twitter account were in fact “faked”, as ITAR-TASS reported. It was simple to see how Pyatt had simply grabbed a series of images off of the Google World-style satellite mapping website Digital Globe, claiming it was “evidence” of Russia artillery fired into eastern Ukraine. If you combine Pyatt’s performance here alongside the less-than-mediocre abilities of US State Dept. Deputy Spokesperson, Marie Harf, as she attempted to convince the world she wasn’t running interference for the collection of lies being juggled by Washington at present – it’s just further proof that Washington’s regime change agents have completely lost the plot.
Here is Geoff’s rather flamboyant, and ultimately embarrassing Tweet:
It turns out, Pyatt’s Twitter gaff, was part of an “disinformation merry-go-round” currently on heavy rotation in Kiev. Unlike to too-eager media drones in the US and Europe, Russian officials have been able to explain the mechanics of the Washington-Kiev fiction mill:
“This scheme is called “an informational merry-go-round,” Konashenkov added, using an expression commonly uttered in Russia relating to feeding the information to the media.
“It’s no secret to anyone that fakes like this are made by a group of US counselors staying in the Kiev building of the Security Council, led by General Randy Kee,” he noted.
The general outlined the cycle as follows: the US counselors in the Kiev feed the disinformation to the Ukrainian media, with the news being taken by the Washington official representatives and presented as statements.
Afterwards, the Ukrainian media cite the US authorities and publish articles like, as “objective.”Washington Raises the Stakes
Clearly, war planners in Washington are determined to fabricate a case against Russia in order to enable either of these two outcomes:
1. Create a ‘global’ mandate for wider international sanctions against Russia.
2. Create a UN Security Council Crisis by implicating Russia via an “international violation”.
The first outcome is already in motion, but has failed to gain any real traction, not least of all because the US had expended most of its credibility and goodwill as a result of lying its way into successive wars and being caught doing, as was the case in Syria last September.
With the first outcome set firmly in place, the second desired outcome was set into motion by ‘Lawyer-n- Chief’, President Barrack Obama, who has accused Russia of Violating a 1980′s international missile treaty:
“In an escalation of tensions, the Obama administration accused Russia on Monday of conducting tests in violation of a 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calling the breach ‘a very serious matter’ and going public with allegations that have simmered for some time.” New sanctions from world leaders are imminent “amid worries that Moscow is stepping up its intervention in Ukraine and may be setting the stage for an outright invasion.” Moscow appears to be preparing for “deeper international isolation.” [AP]
Evidently, this is just the latest desperate lunge by Washington, dipping back into Soviet era legalese in order to bolster and intensify the idea of a ‘Russian Threat’ to the US and Europe.
What Obama fails to mention is that Washington is able to conveniently side-step any of the US treaty obligations by going via the NATO route. Obama himself has been a key driver in pushing NATO ‘defensive missiles’ into eastern European countries right on Russia’s own doorstep. When the US began this push to militarize the European border with the Russian Federation, it used the rather incredulous excuse that their new encirclement was to protect against, “an Iranian intercontinental ballistic missile threat”, even though no such threat exists. Obama’s phase two is set to be implemented this year:
- Phase Two (in the 2015 time frame) – After appropriate testing, deploy a more capable version of the SM-3 interceptor (Block IB) in both sea- and land-based configurations, and more advanced sensors, to expand the defended area against short- and medium-range missile threats.
US, NATO Are Fast-Tracking War Plans
Following 21WIRE’s initial independent investigation into the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, hundreds of thousands of readers now have a clearer insight into what appears to be a failed false flag operation designed to assign blame for the tragedy – to eastern Ukrainian rebels and Moscow. Fortunately, the world is waking up fast to this latest tale of overt deception by neo-fascists in Kiev, Washington and its NATO allies, but the danger stakes are now higher than ever, as western planners are even more desperate to expedite their plans to re-polarize the globe into a binary conflict.
