All right-thinking people know that all loyal servants of the Anglo-American empire are deluded nut-jobs who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the ass. But it must be admitted that this particular variety of human being does know one important thing, and they know it very well: Whenever anything happens that they don’t like: Putin did it!
Take, for example, the recent UK referendum on leaving the EU. 52% of the British electorate voted to leave, much to the muffled cheers of all other decent Europeans. But what most people believe was an exercise in democracy that is rarely seen in the democratic West, was in fact the culmination of a grand and dastardly plot by Vladimir Putin in his devilish campaign of asymmetric warfare, designed to bring the downfall of Western civilization, no less.
Commenting last month on the potential for a ‘Brexit’, soon-to-be-retired PM David Cameron said that both “Putin and ISIS might be happy with the outcome”. No doubt! After all, everyone knows that the Russian move into Syria last year was for the purpose of supporting ISIS terrorists so that they could expand their presence into Europe and thereby terrify British citizens into voting to leave the EU. But the most damning indictment of the Russian mastermind came from former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, who tweeted today after the results were declared:
“(s)hocked by Brexit vote! Losers: EU, UK, US, those that believe in unity of a strong, united, democratic (sic) Europe. Winners: Putin.”
“I genuinely complement Putin for his victory tonight on Brexit. Tonight is a giant victory for Putin’s foreign policy objectives.”
Grasping the rationale behind this comment is no easy task. One of the main reasons (if not the main reason) that a majority of British citizens voted to leave the EU yesterday is that they have, over the last few years, been repeatedly terrorized (physically and emotionally) by the threat of ISIS/Muslim terrorists blowing them up and a wave of Syrian refugees (complete with ISIS terrorists) invading their country and destroying their way of life, which includes football hooliganism, drinking too much alcohol and repressing their emotions.
Apparently McFaul, Cameron (etc.) believe that the blame for this dire state of affairs should be placed at the door of the Kremlin. This conclusion is reached despite the fact that Russia has done far more over the past 9 months to destroy ISIS and bring peace to Syria than all of Christendom has done over the past 4 years. In addition, the entire world (at least that part of it that still watches the news) was informed over the past 6 months that Turkey is almost solely responsible for engineering the movement of massive numbers of Syrian refugees to Europe.
The EU central powers made no secret of the fact that they were blackmailed by struck a deal with Turkey to stop the refugees from moving through Turkey in exchange for wads of EU taxpayers’ cash! This is Turkey, the country that shot down a Russian jet over Northern Syria last year, souring Russian-Turkish relations, and all because Russian jets were bombing ISIS and other Turkish-supported terrorist positions in Syria that were involved in stealing Syrian oil for the Erdogan clan, and trying to secure a part of Syria for Erdogan’s Neo-Ottoman empire (or at least stop the Kurds from forming a country out of part of N. Syria and Iraq…and possibly part of SE Turkey).
But none of those details matter to hysterically mendacious British and US warmongers, because the phrase “Putin did it!” explains the situation to the general public in a much more deceptive and emotionally-manipulative way.
