"Russian Invasion" Of Ukraine, Turns Out to Have Been a Translation Error
By Moon Of Alabama
After all major news-entities repeated the "invasion" claim and the public damage is done they simply take it back.
...This is a quite amazing "information operation" without doubt of U.S. origin.
Consider: The Ukrainian President talks about Russian affiliated insurgents in east-Ukraine and Reuters and others distribute this as "invasion". After all major news-entities repeated the "invasion" claim and the public damage is done they simply take it back.
Consider this from Tagesschau, the highest rated German TV news show:
On #Ukraine there was a translation error by the agency Reuters: According to the correction Poroshenko did not talk of an invasion.So there was an "invasion", distributed by major news agencies, which then turns out to have been a translation error or an intentional Poroshenko 'screw up'.
Notice that one author of the NYT piece above is Michael Gordon, who, together with Judith Miller, wrote sensational reports about proof of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
The current head of NATO who is promoting war against Russia, Fogh-of-war Rassmussen, said 11 years ago: "Iraq has WMDs. It is not something we think, it is something we know".
These folks and the western news agencies that promoted the WMD in Iraq claims are now claiming a Russian "invasion" in Ukraine only to retract it when the damage is done. Warmongers. All of them.
Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan
By Tyler Durden
"...The president's policies put an end to dollar hegemony and end the reserve currency status of the dollar once and for all, thereby starting the rapid, and uncontrolled, collapse of the US empire..."
...In retrospect it will be very fitting that the crowning legacy of Obama's disastrous reign, both domestically and certainly internationally, will be to force the world's key ascendent superpowers (we certainly don't envision broke, insolvent Europe among them) to drop the Petrodollar and end the reserve status of the US currency.As of this moment, both Russia and China have shown not only that it can be done, but it is done. Expect everyone to jump onboard the new superpower axis bandwagon soon enough."
