Since the onset of the cold war we have been educated and informed by our government and the media what a formidable enemy communist Russia was.
I lived through it for most of my 61 years on this planet. With the fall of communism Russia remained our enemy anyway. We bragged about winning the cold war but yet Russia remained a foe.
They were such a formidable opponent we created NATO, an organization of member states in alignment against aggression across Europe. Its motto “an attack on one is an attack on all”. We developed and deployed military hardware and advanced weapons system at a considerable cost with defending against Russia in mind. We used these weapons systems against smaller foes across that same period of time.
The US created a thermobaric weapon called the GBU-43/B MOAB also known as the “mother of all bombs”, that is the most powerful single conventional non-nuclear bomb ever used. On 13 April 2017, a MOAB was dropped15 on an ISIS-Khorasan cave complex in Achin District, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan. We developed cluster bombs, daisy cutters and used them to great effect in the war on terror. The Russian TOS-1A is a thermobaric weapon that the US has no equivalent. The long and short of this is that the Russian weapons we call barbaric the US is just as guilty.
Russia is using similar weapons in the war against Ukraine and are being deemed barbaric and guilty of war crimes. The FOAB or Father of all bombs is a thermobaric weapon much like the MOAB. I am no weapons expert but I can read and apply reason. When we use these type of insidious weapons we are heroic. When someone else uses them they are barbaric. Funny how that works!
We are being told in so many words that Russia is struggling with Ukraine. Ukraine is brave and holding its own. Russia is being portrayed as a weakling, disorganized and not formidable at all. What happened to Russia’s enormous military might? Either we are being lied to now or we have been lied to since March 12, 1947 about the Russian threat.
I believe we are being lied to know because in conversations in the media and privately people want to see Russia get their asses kicked. Which is exactly the response the US warmongers are looking for.
What happened to this “fake news”? Did it all end, and the news media became more reliable once Russia threatened Ukraine? I see everybody and his brother lining up to get involved in Ukraine war, even if it means WWIII and nuclear war, because we are being inundated with propaganda every single minute of the day, from factions in the US Government that want WWIII.
Get ready folks…its coming if we stay the course! The pro-death crowd is hard at work using propaganda to start WWIII to purge those that were missed by Covid 19.
