Ukraine's civil war (image source: Bloomberg
What follows here, about the current U.S. government's lying, is banned by all major news sites in the United States, and by most ‘alternative news’ sites, such as Common Dreams, Alternet, and Truthout (although some of those alt-news sites do issue watered-down reports from Robert Parry and a few other establishment journalists, about related matters)
Journalist Vladimir Kornilov posted to his facebook page on August 15th, an important question that’s getting increasing attention on other independent websites:
Here's a question mainstream media will not ask: When the army of the DNI [commonly called Ukraine’s ‘rebels’] are retired Russian military, the West immediately writes about "Russian aggression". And if retired (believe that retired) military mercenaries from the EU are fighting on the side of the APU [commonly called the Ukrainian government], why do the same media not write about "the aggression of the European Union?"
It’s a good question, because it puts the spotlight the Big Lie peddled the Western propaganda sheets that pass themselves off as news papers and broadcasters about the civil war in Ukraine: that the Russian army is itself participating in Ukraine’s civil war (not merely providing professional military advisors to a self-arisen civilian army who are protecting their own families from invasions and basically from a U.S.-sponsored ethnic cleansing campaign by an imposed Ukrainian government in Kiev, which the residents in the separatist region never even had any participation in democratically electing — and, after the man, for whom those residents had actually voted 90%+ in Ukraine’s last genuinely democratic election, was thrown out of office in a violent February 2014 U.S. coup).
When NATO agencies are blowing the whistle on US / EU anti - Russian propaganda ( a href="http://www.rt.com/news/311800-osce-russia-ukraine-weapons/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome" ) you can be sure Russian armed forces are not participants in Ukraine’s U.S.-caused civil war: that’s a fact. The allegation to the contrary is a U.S.-Ukrainian government lie — nothing else.
The U.S. Government is simply trying to fool the public into believing that the Ukrainian government’s bombing that area of the former Ukraine doesn’t cause thousands of the residents there to take up arms against those invaders, and against that government — the government which calls all of these residents ‘terrorists.’ Why is that? Because The United States of America needs war to mend its broken economy. What they have not thought through is (a) the unlikelihood of winning a war against Russia, China and their allies and (b) how much damage would a war do to their already dysfunctional society?
