Instead of Providing Evidence for Russian Guilt in Plane Shootdown, U.S. Says: Just TRUST Us … Because Those Iraq War Lies Are Ancient History

U.S. State Department Says: We’re the Good Guys, and Russians Are Liars … So Just Take Our Word For It

In the following 5-minute clip from a question and answer session between State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf and the American press, the U.S. State Department says (stripped of fluff):

We’re the good guys who tell the truth, and Russians are liars.

Forget Iraq … that’s ancient history.

Just trust us.

If the Iraq war is too far back to qualify as modern history, the U.S. government also told a pack of lies LAST YEAR to try to start a war against Syria.  Or is that too long ago to be relevant to judging U.S. willingness to tell whoppers?

As Zero Hedge pointed out days ago, it doesn’t matter what really happened … the U.S. has announced that Russia did it.  Forget fiat money … this is fiat intelligence.

    The credibility of the U.S. government is a national security issue – no, a crisis! If international relations and diplomacy haven’t always been a jungle, the policies followed by this country particularly since the collapse of the former Soviet Union have made it one. Because you (think you) can is not a sound foundation upon which to base foreign diplomatic and military strategy.

    Voice of Reason- I believe you will find this piece by James Petras interesting, and fully supportive of your position:

    I encourage everyone to read it. I like Petras but his scholarly approach doesn’t always quite resonate with me; this piece is really excellent.

  • In my local “news”paper, they ran today a political cartoon saying Putin shot down that airline. And that’s the 2nd political cartoon saying Putin shot down that plane that I saw in the last few days in my local “news”paper. So I’m sure they’re syndicating those political cartoons fingering Putin across all the “news”papers across the country.

    Here’s an example:

    Big Dan – It’s (probably) even worse than you imagine. Here is a link to a Ukraine ‘cartoon’ by the local ‘liberal’ cartoonist for the Arizona Daily Star:
    If there are any artistically inclined readers out there, how about redrawing this and showing ‘Fitz’ as Putin with his cartoon as ‘The Rebels’?

    What a load of crap! I would like to know just what “massive amounts of propaganda” that this twit thinks the Russians are putting out there…is really propaganda. I have watched tons of RT, in the field reporting, and I have yet to see anything fishy. There’s got to be something, because everybody fudges. However, I totally convinced by many investigations by my own hand and others, that the US Govt has become almost habitual on a daily basis for spewing lies or repeating them. And the MSM lapdogs happily repeat all of it. Her dodgy excuses for not being able to release any evidence was classic pedalspeak. She said alot…of nothing. As opposed to the Russian presentation re the tracks and activities of MH17, other airliners, the SU-25 and the photos of the Uke SA11 BUK systems being moved around. They had solid evidence for all to see and question. The US has KoolAid based accusations and zippy headlines of indictment.

    The US government are about as trust worthy as a second hand car salesman, and I would trust them even less.
