Anti-Russia propaganda is a favored political tactic of Hillary and Republican politicos -- yes, strange bedfellows indeed -- although not so much of Trump, at variance from his typical political gaming. Its goal is to gain prejudicial support of the electorate at the ignored or disguised expense of threatening world peace.
One of the ploys in this game is to support the fascist-leaning government of western Ukrainia while ignoring or denigrating the eastern Ukrainian plebiscite which voted over 90 percent for closer political ties with Russia. Another is to demonize the Russian military role in the Middle East (their hemisphere) while minimizing or more often ignoring the much more offensive and prolonged American inter-hemispheric invasion of countries two seas from our shores.
Pogo had it aright: "We have met the enemy and he is us."
It's time to sound the tocsin. It's time to stop our invasion of the Middle East, and time to respond to and squash the propaganda that supports it -- before all this morphs to a deadly embrace within American shores.
