Propaganda on the INF

It is essential to blame Russia for the collapse in the global framework of arms control.

It is disappointing but perhaps not surprising to see even ‘senior’ journalists engaged in the work of propagandaising this message on behalf of NATO and the US. This is a piece in the Guardian attributed to the Guardian’s world affairs editor, Julian Borger, and another writer.  Continue reading “Propaganda on the INF”

Unjustified and legitimate seizures of ships – a tale of two ships

What is the difference between piracy and unjustified seizures? You don’t need to be a genius to know that Russia engages in unjustified seizures and Britain in legal ones. Continue reading “Unjustified and legitimate seizures of ships – a tale of two ships”

An evil day for Britain

Julian Assange has been arrested on a US extradition warrant.

Julian Assange has committed no crimes on UK soil (except breach of bail, which is a separate matter). The charges in the US are political matters. In essence Assange published information related to US lies and war crimes (e.g. the infamous massacre committed by laughing Apache pilots) committed in the course of an illegal invasion of Iraq. None of this is contentious. Plain matters of fact.

It is horrible indictment of the absolute gutter the UK political class lives in that they have permitted some thugs to drag Assange from the embassy and bundle him into a van. Such actions are worthy of Nazi Germany.

Anti-semitism and the State of Israel

Let’s look at the article in the Guardian , which we reviewed in our last post, in more detail. The context is that Derek Hatton, a long-time maverick member of the Labour Party and agitator from within it, was readmitted to membership of the Party last week – only to be immediately suspended in connection with an “anti-Semitic tweet”. The web post dates from 6 years ago. (In this new ideology there is no place for time, for forgiveness).

The Guardian and the demonisation of Russia

Writing about a theory that the recent tragic collapse of a block of flats in Magnitogorsk in Southern Russia was actually a terrorist attack one of the Guardian’s pseudo-journalists has felt compelled to regurgitate the stories about how Putin organised the 1999 apartment bombings in Russia.

I wonder if Marc Bennetts has any idea how revolting this is?

A recipe for war

In 2014 the EU and the US supported a ‘revolution’ in Ukraine. They produced a fanciful narrative about Ukrainians yearning to join the EU. The US was a bit off-tune with the “fuck the EU” comment [1] – they wanted to fix Ukraine themselves – but everyone agreed that the violent overthrow of the elected government of Viktor Yanukovych was a blow for freedom and democracy.
