THE SAKER—The Belarusian military is dramatically different from the Ukrainian military which had practically lost its combat readiness decades ago, which was then purged from all real patriots, and which was fantastically corrupt. In contrast, the comparatively small Belarusian military is, by all accounts, very well-trained, decently equipped and commanded by very competent officers. I think that it is a safe bet to say that the armed forces are loyal to Lukashenko and that they would probably welcome a full reunification with Russia.

MAX PARRY—Despite the obvious credibility and authenticity questions regarding the use of such controversial technology, it has not prevented critics from lauding it unquestioningly. Unfortunately, even some in alternative media have been regurgitating the film’s propaganda such as The Intercept, a slick online news publication owned by billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar whose financial ties to the national security state and U.S. soft power institutions conflict with the outlet’s purported mission. Notably, The Intercept’s glowing review of Welcome to Chechnya was written by Mehdi Hasan, a journalist who also works for Al-Jazeera, a news agency owned by the ruling emirs of Qatar, a theocratic dictatorship where homosexuality is actually illegal.

JONATHAN COOK—This approach will throw up more Donald Trumps, Boris Johnsons and Jair Bolsonaros. And these men, while charming us with their supposed lack of orthodoxy, will still, of course, be exceptionally accommodating to the most powerful corporate interests – the military-industrial complex – that really run the show. The other option, which has already been road-tested under the rubric of “fake news”, will be to treat us, the public, like irresponsible children, who need a firm, guiding hand. The technocrats and professionals will try to re-establish their authority as though the last two decades never occurred, as though we never saw through their hypocrisy and lies.

ERIC ZUESSE–Why can’t the U.S.-UK team get anti-Russian propagandists who are at least halfway honest and trustworthy? Could it be because honesty and truthfulness aren’t what they are looking for?
But the Netherlands Government is at least as bad. They now are resolutely set upon convicting Russia for having shot down the MH17 airliner over Ukraine’s civil-war zone on 17 July 2014, on the basis of evidence that, if real, convicts instead the Government of Ukraine, and not just for Ukraine’s having shot it down but for that Government’s having done it intentionally — and Netherlands is so brazen as to refuse to allow Russia to provide evidence about that evidence.

Regarding Vanessa and her immensely valuable work in Syria, work of truthful testimony on the ground, at her personal risk, something no Western journo has done, no better endorsement can be found than the poisonous CIA-redacted “official” bio blurb we find circulating on Wikipedia. See if you can count all the tendentious bits they included in this hatchet job directed at someone they obviously hate and fear. (They also showed their hand by trying to whitewash the character of the White Helmets, a terrorist / propaganda organization useful in imperialist adventures, founded and funded by British intelligence, and logically supported by the US/UK deep state.
