Just before going offline to cook our omelette supper I decided to check out Dr Patrick Walsh’s site, a historian and political analyst with special interests in Ireland, Ottoman Turkey and the Caucasus, and a few of whose articles I’ve re-blogged. I find he’d only just published his latest – Putin: The Reluctant Annexationist – and so I printed its 8 pages (including full background history) to read at leisure. IT’S A MUST READ!!
Now should I have dipped into it just as I retired at bedtime, because I only got to daub his first two pages with yellow high-lighter and had to stop there! Being Irish one could assume Dr Pat is biased – BUT I follow the Almighty God who is Truth, Righteousness and Justice and, therefore, I’m interested in factual evidence as free as possible from political persuasion and prejudice. He continues from above:
‘Tom Stevenson, in reviewing a recent book written by one of the chief Ukraine analysts for the BBC, Lawrence Freedman, for the London Review of Books, 6 October 2022, described the people and networks who lie behind the construction of the British State narrative that the BBC presents to its public:...’
What stopped me in my tracks was this on its consequence and latest, of which we Brits are entirely unaware. SO TAKE NOTE (emphases added):
‘It is, therefore, highly unlikely that what we hear about Ukraine is objective, realistic or informative. Another important element of news management and control, along with misinformation and disinformation, is that of deliberate omission and suppression of information.
On 6 October, President Zelensky dropped a bombshell when he told the Australian Lowy Institute that NATO must carry out preemptive strikes against Russia so that it “knows what to expect” if it ever uses its nuclear arsenal. He claimed that such action would “eliminate the possibility of Russia using nuclear weapons,” before he recalled how he urged other nations to preemptively punish Russia before it launched its military action against Ukraine. Zelensky stated: “I once again appeal to the international community, as it was before February 24: Preemptive strikes so that [the Russians] know what will happen to them if they use it, and not the other way around.”
This was a clear acknowledgement that Kiev had been agitating for a pre-emptive strike on Russia by Western Powers prior to the Russian invasion of February 24. Lavrov immediately pounced on this admission by Zelensky, saying that the plea by the Ukrainian President for NATO members to deploy nuclear weapons against Russia was a reminder why Moscow had launched military action against Ukraine: “Yesterday, Zelensky called on his Western masters to deliver a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia” and “showed to the entire world the latest proof of the threats that come from the Kiev regime.” Lavrov reminded the West that Russia’s Special Military Operation had been launched after Zelensky had “declared in January Ukraine’s intention to acquire nuclear weapons” and to neutralize such potential threats.
Zelensky’s reckless statement (perhaps under the influence of too much cocaine) was a bombshell in the West. The Western media largely suppressed it in news coverage. It was covered in the non-aligned global South, however. Afterwards, it is clear that Zelensky’s sponsors got concerned about how this would play out amongst their populations…’
THEN EARLY THIS MORNING I notice this issued late last night by Veronika West about a prophetic warning she’d just issued over Ukraine:
“The Bear Nation” = Russia.
For Veronika’s first link above click image below:
It appears, as mentioned by Wanda Alger on her Telegram that Farcebuk has been clearing out false accounts and bots, and as both prophets have high visibility they may have attracted such attention.
