Managed news misinformation and disinformation rubbish is standard fare on what passes for co-called US/Western print and electronic news reporting.
Truth and full disclosure are verboten, especially on key domestic and geopolitical issues.
On all things Russia, hate-mongering propaganda has been more intense over a protracted period than anything I recall earlier throughout the post-WW II period.
A virtual state of war exists against Russia by hegemon USA-dominated NATO.
It’s ongoing by imposition of unparalleled sanctions and proxy war, the latter using Nazified and involuntary Ukrainian conscripts.
How will things end?
Will the storm be short-lived?
Will normality return ahead?
Or is what’s going on prelude to the unthinkable — direct confrontation between the world’s dominant nuclear powers?
A same-day article asked whether lunatics in charge of the US/Western asylum are heading for global war?
It’s been raging on humanity for over two years throughout the US/West and elsewhere by use of kill shots and all else flu/covid related — with mass-extermination and elimination of what remains of greatly eroded freedoms in mind.
The official kill shot casualty count in the US and Europe is in the millions.
The unofficial US death count is known to exceed half a million.
The overall unofficial human toll in little over two years likely way exceeds the numbers of deaths and injuries in any previous hot war on record — perhaps more than most of them combined.
US/Western sanctions and proxy hot war on Russia risks unthinkable global war 3.0 with nukes.
Father of the Pentagon’s nuclear navy, Admiral Hyman Rickover, warned Congress of the threat 40 years ago in 1982, saying:
“The lesson of history is when a war starts, every nation will ultimately use whatever weapons it has available” to win.
Will dominant US hardliners risk humanity’s demise by waging unwinnable war on Russia?
Are they deranged enough to go where no one of sense and sensibility would dare venture?
On CBS (fake) News Face the Nation Sunday, militant Russophobe Michael McFall was featured.
A litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed.
Russian forces are “basically hunker(ed) down against all these Ukrainian counterattacks (sic).”
In previous articles, I explained the state of Ukraine’s battered, degraded, fragmented, surrounded and largely smashed military.
Thousands of conscript forces abandoned their weapons and surrendered.
Russian forces are largely involved in mopping up operations.
Within around 48 hours after Russia’s special military operation began, its forces gained a dominant upper hand never relinquished.
McFall sounded buffoon-like claiming that Russian forces have yet “to find a battle plan that works (sic),” adding:
“The Russians lost phase one (sic).”
“(P)hase two is digging in defensively (sic)…protect(ing) (themselves) from these Ukrainian attacks (sic).”
No further elaboration is needed to explain the absurdity of his remarks — accepted without contradiction by CBS fake News.
ABC (fake) News This Week featured disgraced retired general David Petraeus.
One critic earlier called him more incompetent than Custer at Little Bighorn.
He was further disgraced by cheating on his wife, along with exchanging racy communications with his mistress — in breach of national security, what led to his sacking as CIA chief.
Combining incompetence with dissembling, he defied reality by calling “the battlefield situation…a bloody stalemate (sic),” adding:
“(T)he Ukrainians…halted the Russians around Kiev, Kharkov and some others (?), and even push(ed) them back a bit in Kiev (sic).”
“Mariupol…has become a bit of a Ukrainian Alamo (sic).”
Ukrainian forces are “pinning down multiple Russian battalions (sic).”
In a few short weeks, Russia reduced an estimated 20,000 Nazified forces in Mariupol to around 6,000.
Divided and surrounded in battered segments, finishing them off is just a matter of time.
Calling US-installed puppet Zelensky “a battlefield commander,” Petraeus ignored that he’s been hiding out cross-border in Poland for most of the time since Russia’s campaign began.
And he ludicrously claimed that it “set back (its) military for years (sic)…showing…that it wasn’t (a) wonderfully modernized force (sic).”
If Pentagon ranks include many others like Petraeus, claims about it being the world’s preeminent military are greatly exaggerated and then some.
In little over a month, superior Russian forces transformed Ukraine’s military into a hollow shell.
Hegemon USA and NATO vassal state poured billions of dollars of weapons, munitions and equipment into Ukraine for years.
Russian forces eliminated most of it in a few weeks.
Defeating the remnants Ukraine’s battered military as a fighting force is just a matter of time.
Restoring and keeping the peace in the aftermath war will likely another matter entirely.
