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.)
