Oh how our Western media are doing the bidding of governments in portraying the Russians as the bad guys with absolutely no evidence provided as yet to put Russia in the frame for either the attack on the father & Daughter in Salisbury or the chemical attack in Syria. But boy oh boy how convenient this all is for America, France and Britain to justify them going to war.
As I am typing this Mrs May has assembled her ‘war cabinet’ and the members of that elite club were seen on the news striding into number 10. The problem I have with all of this is that all of the actions involving chemical weapons are unproven – the evidence virtually non-existent. Even Boris said ‘why should we give Russia the benefit of THE DOUBT’? There should be no doubt Boris – you should be damn sure with real tangible evidence before your party drag us into what could turn out to be a war.
The news media have been clever. They know as well as May, Trump and Macron do that there is no proof that Russia did anything to anyone and on that basis the war cabinets should dissolve, Trump should shut up and Macron calm down a bit.
What stated off with ‘it looks like it could be Russia’ pretty soon became ‘we are pretty sure its Russia’. They are careful to add the phrase ‘alleged chemical attack’ because that is all that it is – alleged! Trouble is that when you say it loud enough and put the same clip of film on the news (of kids crying and being doused with water) over and over again – the propaganda machine will have worked its magic on Joe Public and they will want Russia brought to book. (sheeples)
We have seen no pictures of the two Russians subjected to the chemical attack in Salisbury and as they have ‘recovered’ they have been whisked away from the public eye. Were they actually attacked? We saw plenty of pictures of Letvinyenko right up to the time of his death. But not a peep from these two, just a carefully prepared and stage-managed statement.
And in Syria it seems incredible that Assad would use this stuff on his own people the very day a weapons inspector was present – he would have to be stupid. Also remember that The White Helmets are a questionable organisation with a chequered history and Isis also has the chemicals apparently used.
Trump May and Macron should all concentrate on finding the evidence and truth, take it to the United Nations and enter into discussions on real punishment for those involved. They should right now halt all military action and call a summit for peace involving all parties. Peace is what we should all strive for every day. The rush to war is the action of the insane.
Alternatively if real tangible evidence proves conclusively that Russia is involved (which I think is nonsensical) then heavy sanctions should be levelled against them. But at least the world will have acted sensibly and calmly.
If three countries out of hundreds just go off on a tangent with an obvious separate agenda, then the United Nations is a spent force and should be dissolved at once.
