JEA: Richard Black is not some conspiracy theorist out there. He was a career military officer. He served in both the U.S. Marines and in the U.S. Army JAG Corps for thirty-one years. Black has seen the ugly side of war, and in this video you are about to watch, he analyzed the war in Syria, and then moved on to say uncomfortable things about the Russia/Ukraine conflict.
The mass social media, the military-industrial complex, and Neocon ethnic cleansers will never agree with Black because he is not part of their crowd. He is essentially exposing them all. As he put it at the end of his presentation,
“Ukraine has no significance to Americans….It has no impact on our day-to-day lives. Yet we are playing this reckless game that risks the lives of all people in the United States and Western Europe for nothing.”
He is so right. Just do some casual reading in the mass social media, and you will see that so-called journalists are absolutely careless or dismissive about what is really going on. Take for example Philippe Naughton of the Daily Beast. In an article that is so ridiculous that one wonders whether Naughton even dares to read what the Washington Post itself has reported about Neo-Nazis in Ukraine, Naughton said:
“The Kremlin’s favorite propaganda mouthpieces want you to disregard the Holocaust and forget all about the 6 million Jews who died in Nazi concentration camps. They are re-writing history to claim Nazism has nothing to do with Jewish people.
“The debate on the meaning of Nazism is more than just a sideshow for Kremlin ideologists. Since sending in his army in tanks and trucks into Ukraine bearing a Swastika-style “Z” insignia, Putin’s assertion of political control inside Russia itself has come straight out of the fascist textbook. Those who are not with us must be against us, is the refrain—and since we are fighting Nazis our enemies must also be considered Nazis..”
Naughton never answered the perennial question: Are there Neo-Nazis in Ukraine or not? If no, then why doesn’t Naughton fight against the Washington Post as well? If yes, then why is he condemning Putin for reporting this? You see, Naughton is essentially living in a topsy-turvy world, one which continues to put him in a Neocon matrix.
In any event, Col. Black’s assessment is worth watching.
