White House Sidesteps Its Fire-bombings in Southeastern Ukraine

Just as the White House is lying to say, of the tanks rolling through southeastern Ukraine, “We are confident that these tanks came from Russia,” and that “no Ukrainian tank units have been operating in that area,” the White House is also refusing to answer reporters’ questions as to whether the government that we have installed in Ukraine is dropping the firebombs that are now incinerating neighborhoods in Ukraine’s southeast, where this regime is rejected by the public.

Apparently, President Barack Obama is as confident of a compliant press regarding his lies about Ukraine as President George W. Bush was confident of a compliant press regarding his lies about Iraq. Only time will tell whether or not that expectation is warranted, as it was in 2002 and 2003.

(Note: Inasmuch as America’s press are rampantly passing off to the American public “pro-American” — actually pro-regime — propaganda about the civil war in Ukraine and the Obama Administration’s role in it, the links to all of the sources for this news report are here provided to supply the documentation; and, any question regarding the documentation within those linked-to sources is provided within that given source’s links, so that the reader can check out the ultimate facts independently of what is reported either here, or else in such “news” sources as the New York Times and the White House.)

    Great reporting, Eric; thank you! I appreciate your ongoing work and care to communicate the most important facts of what’s really happening on our beautiful but dominated planet.

    “Reporters” like Eric Zuesse are willing marionettes in the propaganda war.
    See “How Russia Is Winning the Propaganda War” article on Russia Today’s ventriloquists.

      This is Eric Zuesse. Thanks for that Spiegel editorial. Unfortunately, it has no links (and so is hostile to open-minded readers who want to check everything out), and it ignores the documentation from non-Russian sources that Obama was behind the coup, and that the four leading parties that Obama installed in Kiev include two that are neo-Nazi and two that are merely fascist, but nothing to the “left” of the Koch brothers in the U.S., and it also ignores much else that gives the lie to U.S. press accounts, such as in the New York Times.

        The Kettel doth protest too much methinks.

          Keep on being satisfied with being deceived, but then keep quiet about it.

            Only a superciious, pompous, smug, immature person could say that.

      …and der Spiegel is a willing marionette of the american propaganda machinery.

  • Both sides, and their foreign patrons, lie so much in and about this gang-war in the Ukraine I’d want to see some video of burned-out neighborhoods before I credited this “firebombing”.

    By the way, it’s easy to determine if white phosphorus has been burned. It leaves phosphorus.

    “the February 22nd overthrow of the democratically elected Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was engineered in Washington”

    Anti-Ukrainian and anti-Russian “Regime change” developing into a bloody finale.
