Should Auld Aquaintance Be Remembered? For The Sake Of The Future It Should

Every day for the past month we have been fed a stream of propaganda narratives about Vlad (Dr. Evil) Putin and the brutal Russians bullying brave little Ukraine and unfortunately a significant proporation of citizens (maybe a majority,) of citizens in the western nations have fallen for it and are quite willing to believe that Russia is the perpetual bad guy, the existential threat to European civilisation.

People have such short memories.

In 2011 NATO, or to be exact The USA, UK and France bombed a path to Tripoli to help its proxy forces of tribalistic ragheads on the ground oust Colonel Gaddafi. Tens of thousands lost their lives and much of Libya’s social fabric and infrastructure lay in ruins. In the space of a few weeks Libya was transformed from Africa's most prosperous and socially advanced nation to a failed state with three separate groups claiming to the legiimate government and waging a tripartate civil war. That situation persists today. 

The 2016 article appearing in Foreign Policy Journal ‘Hillary Emails Reveal True Motive for Libyan Intervention’ exposed why Libya was targeted.

Gaddafi was murdered and his plans to assert African independence and undermine Western hegemony on that continent were rendered obsolete. The NATO action was justified by claims that Gaddafi was a brutal tyrant whose oppressive regime routinely brutalised the Libyan people. In fact Gaddafi was hugely popular among his people, it was the ruling elites of the west that did not like him because he was an obstacle to their plans for the economic colonisation of Africa.

In 2013 a Daily Telegraph article “US and Europe in major airlift of arms to Syrian rebels through Zagreb” reported that 3,000 tons of weapons had been sent in 75 planeloads from Zagreb airport in Croatia to rebels. In the same year Croatia was admitted to the European Union.

Also that year The New York Times ran the article “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands with CIA Aid”, stating that Arab governments and Turkey had sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters. This aid included more than 160 military cargo flights.

In his book The Dirty War on Syria, Tim Anderson describes how the West and its allies were instrumental in organising and then fuelling that conflict. Western politicians, led by US President Barack Obama made speeches and wrote editorials proclaiming that Syria's brutal dictator Bashar Al Assad must be ousted so that 'democracy and western values' could be spread to Syria.

Once again NATO and EU politicians took up the cry that Assad was a bully and a brute whose regime kept Syrians in a state of terror. Barack Obama (mouth almighty,) said that ousting Assad was his number one priority and spoke of direct military intervention by NATO to oust the Assad regime. Then Vladimir Putin told Obama and NATO that Russia would respond to help their ally. And that mad the western alliance reert to a policy of funding and arming batallions of undisciplines raghead terrorists who did unspeakable thing to Syrians in the areas they controlled. Christian and Jewish Syrians and the Yazidi and Druze minorities (whose offence was not being non - Muslims but simply being the wrong kind of Muslims,) and particularly the women of those minorities.

Over the last two decades, politicians and the media have been manipulating popular sentiment to get an increasingly war-fatigued Western public to support ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, under the notion of ‘protecting civilians’ or a ‘war on terror’.

The technique is always the same, a narrative is built around a claimed need to protect minorities, defend human rights of gays, transexuals and (but not so much these days,) biological women, removing tyrants from power, speading 'western values or protecting human life, in order to justify military attacks, resulting in the loss of hundreds of thousands of civilian lives and the displacement of many more.

A memo from the US Secretary of Defense to NATO Secretary General Wesley Clark leaked by Clark after his retirement revealed plans to “attack and destroy the governments in seven countries in five years,” starting with Iraq and moving on to “Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran”. Clark argued this strategy is fundamentally about control of the region’s vast oil and gas resources.

Part of the battle for the public’s hearts and minds is the task of convincing people to regard these wars and conflicts as a disconnected array of events, not the planned machinations of the shadowy cabal of business leaders, politicians, academics and financiers who openly admit their aim is to replace national democracies with a totalitarian global government. For the last decade, the ongoing narrative about Russian aggression has been part of the strategy although commentators who do not subscribe to the global governance project recognise China as the biggest threat to the established world order.

But let's stop pretending the western governments are innoocents. Just what do we imagine MI6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6) part of SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) do? Develop novel knitting patterns? Similarly, is Porton Down the centre for macramé excellence?

No, MI6 is devoted to covert operations against foreign nations. Porton Down to a variety of things including chemical and biological warfare.

In 2018 an attack carried out with a nerve agent in the quiet English town of Salisbury, allegedly by Russian agents rendered former Russian secret agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter critically ill.  The alleged Kremlin sanctioned murder of Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy who while spying for his homeland on Britain was also passing Russian secrets to MI5, the governments “It’s the Russians” narrative has started to look more motheaten than a one armed piano player's dinner jacket.

Not only was Skripal a double agent, since being released from prison in 2010 as part of a spy swap with the USA, the former spy has been involved in commercial espionage and was named as a person of interests in the Democrats Dodgy Dossier compiled in an effort to smear Trump in the 2016 US presidential election. People like him tend to have a lot of enemies (including, possibly, President Trump – how bizarre the loony left have not yet tried to implicate him in the attack.)

There is something rather strange about the desperate bid to blame Russia, (apart from the fact that the media kerfuffle has kept two major stories off the front pages throughout this month;), it ignores a historic event that took place last November, also largely ignored at the time by most of the world’s media. Had the Salisbury attack not brought chemical weapons to the top of the news it might have remained ignored. In a ceremony at the headquarters of the world body responsible for the elimination of chemical weapons in The Hague, a plaque was unveiled to commemorate the destruction of the last of Russia’s stockpiles of chemical weapons.

Does anyone else find it strange that a very obvious, but convoluted chemical attack was conducted on an ‘individual of concern’ in Salisbury, the British home of chemical warfare, when an old fashioned IRA type car bomb, or an old fashioned Russian kidnapping and subsequent disappearance would have eliminated the target without all the media attention?

Similarly, former Russian spy Yuri Litvinenko was subject to a ‘sophisticated’ dose of nuclear poison, administered from a unique umbrella that was never found. Employing a drug reliant and desperate street thug with a knife would have been a far more effective and anonymous means of elimination.

Are we really expected to believe that MI6 (or whoever) is a well oiled, efficient espionage unit that never resorts to underhand tactics, whilst Russia is a bumbling bunch of fools who employ tactics straight from the school of James Bond fantasy?

Sorry, but I’m not that gullible. At deep state level The Russians are bastards. At deep state level so are we, and the Americans, French, Germans, Italians etc. etc.
