Five REAL Stories Hidden From View by “Russiagate”

You can believe this bullshit or you can believe the truth… it’s up to you. By the way… over the years, Soviet and Russian diplomats and journalists showed great courtesy and consideration to Ms Waters… this is how she repays friendship. This is how all Anglo Americans and their allies act. Never turn your back on an American… they’re false to the core and only care for their own advancement. You’ll regret doing otherwise…

The mainstream media ignored key developments whilst peddling nonsense about Russia. With increasingly illogical, contradictory, and downright insane Russiagate stories dominating the headlines, here are some important stories you may have missed.

Saudi Arabia’s War on Yemen

Saudi Arabia confirmed that missiles fired from the Houthi-backed Yemeni government hit near the Saudi capital of Riyadh. The strike came as Donald Trump visited the Wahhabi Kingdom on a trip that includes a visit to Israel. According to so-called Saudi activist Jassem bin Mohammed:

A huge explosion shook (the) Riyadh area before Trump’s visit amidst panic, fear, and rumours that this was a Yemeni ballistic missile, and it comes right before the arrival of the American guest (Trump), and this is the message they wanted to deliver to us.

With American and British assistance, Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen in a war that caused massive civilian casualties, infrastructural collapse in Yemen, and mass starvation from a man-made famine. Reports also surfaced that cholera broke out in the besieged state.

America Attacks Syria Again 

The USA confirmed an air-to-ground attack on a convoy in southern Syria. The strike near a small US-coalition base in at-Tanf targeted a convoy that Syria said comprised soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defence Forces (NDF), Hizbullah, and the Imam Al-‘Ali Battalion. The USA continues to quote jihadist rhetoric by claiming that the troops were Iranian when in fact they included Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, and possibly an unconfirmed contingent of Iranian irregulars. Russia condemned the attack whilst Syria referred to it as government terrorism.

One Belt–One Road

A historic conference between heads of state and government in Beijing dominated the early part of the week, where countries as diverse as China, Russia, Turkey, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and Pakistan (to name a few) participated in a forum where leaders expressed their commitment to one of the largest logistics, trade, and commerce projects in modern history. The Chinese-spearheaded initiative seeks to create modern land and sea trade corridors linking East Asia to Africa and Eurasia to Europe. This groundbreaking project could shift the balance of world economic power, but the western mainstream media totally ignored it.

US Military Leaders Softening Tone On Russia 

As Russiagate dominates the domestic media circus, US Defence Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis and Joint Chiefs Chairman Marine General Joseph Dunford said that the USA is eager to engage in a process they call “deconflict”.  According to General Dunford, both Russia and America are keen on minimising any conflict between the two sides in order to focus on fighting ISIS around Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor.

Saudi Weapons Deal 

The United States is about to finalise the sale of military hardware to Saudi Arabia in a deal said to be worth 110 Billion USD (6.25 billion Roubles. 757.12 billion Renminbi. 7.1 trillion INR. 148.67 billion CAD. 147.32 billion AUD. 98.2 billion Euros. 84.53 billion UK Pounds). Reports say that Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner personally intervened to seal the deal. Far from breaking with the time-tested US tradition of selling the Saudis expensive weapons systems that their poorly-trained army can barely operate, the Trump administration is keen to use the deal as a symbolic expression of US commitment to the Gulf states’ continued aggressive posturing towards Iran. Of course, this came on the eve of Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia.
