Blame the Deep State for Carnage in Ukraine

“From the onset of the Ukraine war, the corporate media, politicians, and all the controlled NGOs throughout America and Western Europe were lockstep in their claim that the Russian military action in eastern Ukraine was unprovoked and unjustified — an act of aggression that could not be allowed to stand. There was one problem with this propaganda blitz: it was totally untrue. The Deep State — the government elites, intelligence community, and the military establishment — has spent decades threatening and provoking Russia by pushing NATO up against their border. You do not have to like Russia to see this, and you can detest Vladimir Putin until the cows come home. The fundamental issue remains the same: the Russians view NATO on their border as an act of aggression and a threat to their national security, and we have known this for decades.” (11/16/22)
