I can only ask (I think I can guess), because the front page of the Daily Mail is full of the “threat from Putin”, which is NO THREAT AT ALL!
When you read the contents however, it is clearly a plea from a military man for more money for the military (and in the case of the UK this is justified as we have cut military spending to laughable levels). He is using Russia as an excuse to increase spending, and the media have grabbed onto his words as being meaningful (for propaganda purposes!). I quote: (Link)
Using the dire warning to make the case for more money for the armed forces, General Carter said:
- Britain could scale back its military withdrawal from Germany to allow personnel to race to Eastern Europe if war breaks out;
- Syria’s civil war was exploited by Moscow to get its troops combat-ready while testing long-range missiles and other equipment;
- Russia’s conventional forces give it a ‘calculable military advantage’;
- Hostile action would be hard to predict and the time to address the threats was now.
General Carter’s major speech came as experts issued their own warnings about the threat from Russia and the need for Britain to spend more on defence.
I believe that General Carter is, perhaps, a man with limited knowledge of the causes of the conflict in Syria, which is based more on Moscow’s desire to sell oil to Europe (which the Saudi’s don’t want, as they have their own pipeline they are planning). America has backed the Arabs over our white brethren in Russia! Shame on them!
The battle over the pipelines also shows that the lives of military men are worth nothing in comparison to power over the supply of oil (now what was that about the environment and pollution?). They don’t care how many are killed as long as there is no competition lowering the price of oil.
Instead of speaking the truth, the media lies and tells us that Russia is a threat (a threat only to Arab oil interests and the elite’s puppets like ISIS!).
Thankfully the British public aren’t buying any of it! And no we are NOT going to fight our brethren in Russia – NEVER! The top comments on the article give me great hope – in the top ten there is not one which supports the propaganda given to us:
As one astute commenter above says “…why have the DM been told to put this out? What is it that’s happening that the Government wishes to distract us from?”
That’s a very good question, and one we ought to consider. Russia is the media’s current “bogeyman”, and the British public no longer fears it – we’ve grown up, and we know we don’t want to fight people who have never attacked us.
My message to the elites – NO WE WILL NOT FIGHT THE RUSSIANS – WE LOVE THEM!
God Bless you
