Oliver Stone: Intelligence agencies “are deliberately misleading us to continue their false-flag war against Russia”

“These sanctions, which I pray Europe can independently judge and discard, are as dumb as giving out medals to Generals who keep losing wars. I still have this image burned in my brain of Petraeus with his 11/12(?) rows of ribbons, many looking like Boy Scout badges, surrounded by adoring Congressmen as he lied his way through his foreign policy testimony.”

James Clapper and John Brennan “should be investigated as thoroughly as Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son, etc.”

Oliver Stone got into a sort of political fist fight with Stephen Colbert last month, during which Stone declared that Israel is far more dangerous than Russia. Well, Stone has done it again. The film producer and director has recently penned one of the most provoking essays so far. It was written in response to the United States placing more sanctions on Russia.

Stone declares that the warmongers and “our intelligence agencies” want “to distance us from the rest of humanity” through covert operations, “deliberate” lies and fabrications, and colossal hoaxes. These people, he says, “are not doing their job, and maybe, just maybe, are deliberately misleading us to continue their false-flag war against Russia? Or for that matter, that Russia itself may not be that invested in screwing up our vaunted democracy with such sloppy malware as claimed?”

Stone moves on to say that James Clapper and John Brennan “should be investigated as thoroughly as Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son, etc.” Stone continues to say that both the Washington Post and the New York Times have been misleading their readers into thinking that Russia is a serious threat to the United States. The “Putin Interviews” director has more damning things to say:

These sanctions, which I pray Europe can independently judge and discard, are as dumb as giving out medals to Generals who keep losing wars. I still have this image burned in my brain of Petraeus with his 11/12(?) rows of ribbons, many looking like Boy Scout badges, surrounded by adoring Congressmen as he lied his way through his foreign policy testimony.”

We agree with Stone here, and the prevailing mantra that America is a democracy is simply risible. It was noted last year that nearly 71 percent of Americans did not believe that Russia hacked the election. It was reported this year that 52.4 percent of Americans actually believe that the US government would lie “about a foreign government’s use of chemical weapons in order to justify US military action.”

Now Congress is sanctioning Russia? Are the new sanctions based on what the vast majority of Americans think? Or are the warmongers basing the new sanctions on what the warmongers themselves think? One has to be under the spell of a powerful ideology to call the new sanctions on Russia “democracy.”

Obviously the warmongers lost the war in Syria miserably and pathetically, and now they vow to make Russia pay for their loss. They also have used Trump to create political discord with countries like Iran. Serious experts have said for years that Iran has meticulously been in compliance with international law and with respect to its nuclear program,[1] and Trump has already forged the lie that Iran has violated the nuclear deal.[2] As Gordon Duff has rightly put it, this is a disaster for the United States.

    Maybe it’s time to stop labeling things with ‘Russia’ or ‘the US’ as it’s only a few people/organisations that take part in certain opinions or actions.

    From Ann Diener’s post 8-1 : » I guess everyone wants to blame the Russians. «

    Today I concluded – after months of good counter arguments – that Russia did indeed
    “hack” the US-American election. But not with a trivial kitchen instrument, in the sense
    suggested by Hillary when she said « like with a cloth or something? ». No, Russia
    “hacked” the American election with its airplanes in Syria. That must be the answer to
    that question – as well as the background for the most recent sanctions.
