Americans are so dumb and brainwashed, this is the gibberish you have to get through–
Rolling Stone website:
That is complete brainwashed bullshit, and I can’t even believe I have to respond to it.
The USA sponsored an illegal coup in Ukraine and overthrew the legitimately elected government there, throwing the country into complete turmoil when neo-nazis seized power. Neocon ghoul Victoria Nuland – from Clinton’s State Department – is seen in photos with the fascists and was exposed as involved in the coup. The neo-nazis then demonized Russian speaking Ukrainians as their first act, making it illegal to speak Russian in the parliament. The country flared up into civil war. Thanks, Obama.
The Russians have a naval base in Crimea, since forever. The people there are all connected to the base and consider themselves Russian. They seceded in a vote of over 95% in favor of leaving the new Nazi stronghold. This is reported by idiots in the US as “annexing countries.” It’s quite a different story if you care to learn how to read.
Syria has been invaded by foreign sponsored radical Jihadists. Arms and money flowed from the US’s so-called “allies” including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
That is a war crime and breach of the UN Charter, and has led us to the brink of WW3. The US violates the laws enacted to stop another World War, with impunity.
Russia has a naval base in Syria too. See the pattern yet? They were invited by the actual government of Syria to help defend the country from the foreign bankrolled and armed insurgency, the illegitimate proxy armies that chop off heads and brag about it.
That’s square one for a serious discussion about US / Russian relations today.
