The largest daily newspaper in Russia, Moscow Pravda, is portraying the situation in and around Syria as “highly explosive.” The Banner headline in today’s paper says “Middle East may Explode in Flames.”
It says “It seems in and around Syria, a serious mess is brewing” which could lead to a new regional war.
Who is the paper blaming? Well, unsurprisingly, America.
The paper says “the US is preparing to light the fuse of carnage in the Middle East” and claims the US is looking for an excuse to launch another missile strike upon the Syrian Army.
It goes on to claim that US and NATO warships and planes are gathering in the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf.”
Russia’s response is a military exercise which begins TODAY in the eastern Mediterranean sea; a large one. It includes 26 ships and at least two submarines. It also includes at least 30 planes, including Tupolev 160 strategic bombers, and anti-submarine warfare aircraft.
The paper says “no one has seen such a powerful Russian fist in the Mediterranean since Soviet times.”
In a direct warning to the west, the paper warns the Russian military will now be “warmed up and ready not simply for military exercises, but for combat missions as well.”
The paper goes on to point out that “Back in April, when the US and NATO were planning to carry out missile strikes against Syria, the Russian military warned at the time that, if necessary, they would be prepared to destroy not only the missiles, but also the launch sites; meaning NATO ships and planes. IT IS UNLIKELY TO BE ANY DIFFERENT NOW. That would mean a direct military confrontation with the United States.”
The story ends with another warning. The paper says “It’s only on a map with little ships and little planes from Russia and America that looks like a game of “Battleship.” But if this battle between the major nuclear powers begins for real in the Mediterranean, in reality we would all live to regret it.”
This is the lead story in Russia’s largest daily newspaper today, September 1. The Russian people are being soberly informed about the reality. Americans and Europeans are not being informed.
The legacy mass-media in the West (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX, NYTimes, Washington Post, LA Times, AP, UPI) is completely devoid of any ongoing reporting that may give Americans a “heads-up” about what’s taking place. Why is that?
Is the mass-media so out of touch with reality they cannot see what is actually taking place? Or is it something different; has the mass-media simply become a propaganda outlet, fixating on politics while the world is set up to burn?
