Those ones amongst you dear readers familiar with warfare, will attest to the fact that truth is the first casualty of war. The unarmed machine which ultimately wins or loses the war, happens to be false propaganda. This is why people old enough can vividly recall the talk of rebel chiefs who would walk into enemies’ situation rooms in form of cats and listen into war strategies before going away absolutely unnoticed.
During the world wars, the colonizers made our forefather combatants to drink waragi to lyingly fire them up with fool’s courage. The con Mzungu would falsely call the potent gin the war gin, which our illiterate kindreds ended up unsurprisingly misspelling as waragi. Joseph Kony’s own aunt, Alice Lakwena herself fooled her rebels to smear their bodies with concoctions. She was lying to her victims that the black magic would act as bullet proof against the government fire. Some guys are fighting and bombing themselves and other people, just because they were properly whitewashed to absolutely believe that such madness would earn them heaven – Jjana. Well, such kind of propaganda abounds in plenty. I simply don’t have enough time and space to point out them all.
Many dangerous diseases have been conjured up against Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin. The same have been drummed up in the media, quoting experts only known to the media houses concerned themselves. If Putin hasn’t been reported to be suffering from a sure-life-taking rush, he has been reported to be suffering from terrible cancers, asthma, ulcers plus such life-threatening health conditions. The media houses have on those occasions fraudulently reported Putin to be gravely ill and absolutely unable to command the aggression in Ukraine.
Yet, they have been shooting themselves in the foot by writing somewhere else, how the gravely-ill Putin unable to command the war, is again going on to amass territories in Ukraine. The same media would after a day forget and now report about Putin meeting his top generals plus war strategists. From bad to good news.
Yet, not all bad news is actually bad news per se. Despite the fact that the media and its godfathers seek to demoralize Putin’s soldiers and cause a revolt back in Russia to protest the war in Ukraine. The false reports of Putin’s fake illnesses, have served to the contrary. This position, by instead, unwitty painting a picture for the world of a Putin boasting of nine lives and, hence too strong to be felled by dangerous diseases.
Putin’s own lies
Seeking to win over Russians, Putin lied to them he was going to finish the Ukraine job in only a month. He knew if he had told them the truth, the Russians would get angrier after calculating for themselves the massive human, financial as well as armory cost of the war. Six months now, the war in Ukraine is not only taking hundreds of soldiers and huge funds plus loss of massive armory and support, the same is also proving to be a trickiest affair for Putin to accomplish.
Putin called the aggression not the aggression. He sold it as a measure to stop Ukraine from joining NATO and being used as a base to attack Russia by the West.
All the same, Russia attacked Ukraine, which is deemed to be independent. I therefore honestly think what is going on in Russia is actually aggression per excellence. The same is being committed by a super power against its weak neighbor.
Russia vowed to use nuclear to erase the West from the Earth’s surface. He did this to stop the West from helping Ukraine. And to show it is too strong for the US, London, France and their allies combined. The West is helping Ukraine to amass armory. The same has been used to cut out expensive war machines of Russia and to hit into Russia. Russia hasn’t retaliated against the West, and God forbid, though.
US, UK falsehoods
Joe Biden and the other UK equal with a ridiculous hair fashion, swore to completely join up with Ukraine in physical combat against Putin. The two haven’t joined up with Ukraine as they pledged. What should the world now believe? That the two told a fat lie? That the super powers are super powers in name? Or that they are simply avoiding to add worse fire on the wild fire and to the detriment of the entire globe? The West, apart from blaming Putin, they cleverly conveniently leave out the fact of an agreement they made in the past, undertaking never again in future, to incite Ukraine to join NATO. It’s for exactly inciting Ukraine to do what the agreement disallows, Russia ended up raiding Ukraine.
US the worst criminal
US in particular have caused worst troubles in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Somalia name it, to give justification to Putin to now use the excuse of stopping US more calamity by intervening in Ukraine. The US has carried out many aggressions around the world and against the UN veto, to tell anyone except its puppets, to condemn aggression. The US, which used the only nuclear bomb against Japan in living history, would sound rather funnier condemning Putin of planning to use the same against Ukraine regardless of the moral of the campaign.
