Pentagon controls media

This 2012 story suddenly becomes
highly relevant today in the light of the
on air host of RT America.

The resigning host complained
about RT’s “whitewashing” of
Russia’s military action in the

It’s a good story except that fellow
RT host Abby Martin personally came out
on the air against the same thing.

Try bucking the Pentagon on CNN.

Meanwhile, as an example of press
control in the US, a Senator tried
to get Martin fired…for asking him
questions he didn’t like.

    Didn’t she say this week that she opposed Russian aggression and Russian intervention (5 times in less than 2 minutes). She is either an agent or incredibly stupid. She must be tuning into FOX for her news instead of RT.

    Pentagon hypes bogus ‘Russian threat’ while the U.S. threatens the entire planet

    Sun, 07 Feb 2016.

    The film about nuclear war with Russia recently shown on the BBC, which is considered to be a serious and not an entertainment channel, suggests that such a war is no longer unthinkable but a real possibility. What was even more frightening was that the people in the film who made a fateful decision to start an Armageddon were not actors, but high level albeit retired politicians.

    The film was timed to the release of the latest Pentagon analysis where Russia topped the list of threats to U.S. national security, followed by China, North Korea, Iran and finally, terrorism. The Zika virus was not mentioned – Ebola was not in the past – but from the tone, even if NASA were to warn that a huge asteroid was approaching Earth, it would not replace Russia as a major threat.

    Ash Carter’s statement no doubt brought considerable relief to ISIS, Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra, Boko Haram, and dozens of their affiliates around the world (according to the UN, there are at least 34 such groups), who can celebrate the fact that contrary to WWII, when Americans and Russians fought together to defeat the Nazis, this time for Washington, Moscow is a greater evil and therefore one cannot expect an East-West alliance against terror.

    Some cynics may say that the Pentagon’s threat classification is just a smart way, not only to avoid budget cuts, but to demand more for the deployment of heavy weapons and troops on rotating assignment to NATO countries in Central and Eastern Europe, quadrupling military spending in Europe from $789 million to $3.4 billion. Even the previously liberal but now Neocon New York Times complains that “even though the United States spends more on defense than the next seven countries combined, the Pentagon has been chafing under budget cuts.”
