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.

Putin Called Allegations Trump Passed Secrets to Lavrov “Political Schizophrenia”

________________________

President V V Putin was speaking with the Italian Prime Minister in Sochi when the Italian asked him about the latest events in the USA. Putin said of these outlandish claims:

We’re seeing a developing political schizophrenia in the USA. There’s no other way I can explain the accusations against the US President that he gave away some secrets to Lavrov. Those who spread them (rumours) are either stupid or dangerous. Russia doesn’t interfere in US political activities. I’ll show the world the Russian transcripts of the entire meeting, should the USA give us permission to do so.

He echoed the remarks of Presidential Spokesman D S Peskov who called the allegations “absurd”. Meanwhile, MID RF spokesman M V Zakharova said:

It’s part of a campaign that began before the US presidential election and gone on since then. This is another attempt to exert pressure on the new US administration and make deals related to various political appointments and lobbying. We can’t even say now that there’s media bias because they’re openly fulfilling political orders. The article mentions no evidence; it comes from information received from unknown sources. Actually, there’s a typical pattern about the way that such articles come out and the response that they get.

China Demanded that the USA Stop Its Deployment of THAAD ABMs in the ROK Immediately

________________________

On Tuesday, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Geng Shuang said:

China’s position on the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) issue hasn’t changed. We oppose the deployment of the US missile system to the ROK and call on all parties to stop this process immediately. We’re ready to take necessary measures to protect our interests.

Colonel Rob Manning, US Forces Korea spokesman, told us earlier:

The THAAD system is operational and has the ability to intercept North Korean missiles and defend the Republic of Korea.

Supposedly, the ground-based THAAD missile system intercepts ballistic missile warheads at the end of their mid-course phase and during their approach to a target, to protect cities and key facilities from both short-range and strategic ballistic missiles. The USA claimed that they deployed the THAAD system in the ROK because of the DPRK’s nuclear missile threat. Seoul and Washington agreed on the deployment in July 2016. Russia and China strongly opposed this agreement.

Trump Administration Pressures Argentina to Rescind Award to Former President Jimmy Carter

________________________

The Trump Administration pressured the government of Argentine President Mauricio Macri to rescind an award to former US President Jimmy Carter. Argentina was going to honour Carter with the Order of the Liberator General San Martín, the equivalent to America’s Medal of Freedom. However, the Trump administration moved to quash this as Carter is a frequent critic of the authoritarian tendencies of the Trump Administration. The Buenos Aires Herald wrote:

CNN reported this week that the Mauricio Macri Administration rescinded a decision to award former US President Jimmy Carter the Order of the Liberator General San Martín… the highest distinction that the country can give to a foreigner… under pressure from US President Donald Trump’s administration. The official tribute, already approved by the Foreign Ministry and published in the Official Gazette, was cancelled after receiving a specific request by the US government, which suggested it’d be better to delay it. Carter was to receive the award for his work in promoting human rights during Argentina’s last military dictatorship.
