Russia Waging War on the West?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The US, NATO, Israel, their imperial partners, and press agent media consistently blame Washington’s adversaries for crimes committed against them – notably Russia, China, Iran, and other nations on its target list for regime change.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post repeatedly turns truth on its head on major issues, especially geopolitical ones, Moscow one of its favorite targets, saying:

“Russia has been waging war on the West for at least 10 years (sic), and the West hasn’t bothered to notice. This is not, to be sure, a conventional war (sic), with Russian tanks invading Poland or Russian missiles hitting Pittsburgh,” adding: 

“Moscow’s kind of war is more subtle (sic) and yet all the more effective (sic) — precisely because it does not compel an overwhelming response.”

Fact: Among major powers, Russia is the world leader in pursuing diplomatic resolution to ongoing conflicts. It champions world peace, stability, mutual cooperation among all nations, and multi-world polarity.

Fact: The US and its imperial partners wage forever wars of aggression against nations threatening no one – ongoing in multiple theaters, new ones planned to be launched when ordered.

Fact: World peace, stability and security are gravely jeopardized by Washington’s rage to dominate all other nations, wanting them transformed into vassal states, puppet rule replacing their legitimate governments.

According to WaPo, Kremlin war on the West “began when Russia invaded Georgia” – an Eastern European country invaded by no one.

In August 2014, the Bush/Cheney regime used Georgia to target Russia when far too accommodative to the West Dmitry Medvedev was president. 

Then-Prime Minister Putin was in Beijing for China’s summer Olympics, US orchestrated aggression timed with him out of the country.

Moscow intervened in the South Ossetian breakaway province after Georgian forces invaded. Russian nationals were being slaughtered, many others in harm’s way.

Nations are obligated to protect the security and welfare of their citizens, why Russian forces entered South Ossetia – to avoid a humanitarian disaster, orchestrated by BushCheney hardliners.

Georgian aggression was all about blaming Russia for US-planned regional destabilization – the Saakashvili regime used as an imperial proxy. Waging war had nothing to do with winning it.

WaPo reinvented history, one of its specialties like other establishment media.

WaPo: “In 2014 (nonexistent Russian) ‘little green men’ invaded Ukraine (sic). (Putin) annexed Crimea (sic) and turned eastern Ukraine into a Russian proxy state (sic).”

Fact: From late 2013 – February 2014, the Obama regime orchestrated regime change in Ukraine, replacing its democratic government with Nazi-infested putschists. 

Fact: No Russian invasion occurred, no annexation of Crimea, no wrongdoing of any kind. WaPo and other establishment media Big Lies were long ago exposed and debunked.

WaPo: “In 2014, a Russian antiaircraft missile shot down a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine, killing 298 people (sic). Instead of apologizing and paying restitution, Putin spread crazy conspiracy theories blaming the shoot-down on Ukraine, the CIA or some other culprit (sic).”

Fact: “(C)razy conspiracy theories” matter when correct. Moscow had nothing to do with downing MH17. Orchestrated by the CIA, Ukraine putschists were responsible.

WaPo: “In 2015, Putin entered the Syrian civil war (sic) to help a criminal regime (sic) commit war crimes against its own people (sic).”

“Not satisfied with killing Syrians (sic), last month Russian mercenaries attacked a base that held US forces in an apparent attempt to drive the United States out of Syria (sic).”

Fact: There’s nothing “civil” about US aggression in Syria, using ISIS and other jihadists as imperial foot soldiers, seeking regime change. 

Russia’s intervention changed the dynamic on the ground, foiling the US plot. Still, endless war rages because Trump regime hardliners reject resolution, planning permanent occupation of Syrian territory, massacring civilians by terror-bombing, continuing support for ISIS and other jihadists.

Fact: No Russian attack on US forces occurred – not directly or by proxies, not in Syria or anywhere else.

All of the above WaPo claims are bald-faced Big Lies – long ago discredited. So is its claim, along with other major media and nearly everyone in Washington, about so-called Russian US election meddling.

The Big Lie persists despite no evidence proving it. None exists. The same goes for nonexistent Russian intervention in other elections.

Post-WW II, the US meddled in scores of elections worldwide – the Russian Federation in none, nor has the Kremlin tried toppling sitting governments, a longstanding US specialty, Iran, Syria, and Venezuela most recently without success.

Endless US-led Western media Big Lies about Russia persist. Claims without proof are baseless.

Washington demonizes all its adversaries, Big Lies repeated by major media, serving as imperial press agents.
