Brilliant Bullshit Crap — otherwise known as the BBC.......

Western mainstream media:

The Russians blew up their own NordStream pipeline

The Kremlin ordered a drone strike on the Kremlin

Russia blew up the Nova Kakhovka dam to destroy the defences they had spent over half a year building and deny water supplies to Crimea

 

The BBC does not hesitate: WE KNOW... is equivalent to WHAT WE DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW....

An INCIDENT? Bloody hell! you would not think that a flood of such magnitude with a breech that could not happen "naturally" but had to be done by DAMBUSTERS is a WAR CRIME, A TERRORIST ACT, A SAVAGE BARBARIC ACT.... And who benefits has been the question that no-one in the Western media answers... because as we know:

The Russians blew up their own NordStream pipeline

The Kremlin ordered a drone strike on the Kremlin

Russia blew up the Nova Kakhovka dam to destroy the defences they had spent over half a year building and deny water supplies to Crimea

THIS IS THE PITS OF PROPAGANDIST NEWS FROM A DESPICABLE NEWS OUTLET: THE BRILLIANT BULLSHIT CRAP — OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE BBC... AN ARSEHOLIC ORGAN OF A COUNTRY THAT CANNOT COME TO TERMS THAT IT IS BLATANTLY BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER OF INJUSTICE BY KEEPING JULIAN ASSANGE IN PRISON, UNDER TORTURE CONDITIONS.

TID Intel Drop – US Ok’d Dam Attack as Fallback Plan

https://www.theinteldrop.org/2023/06/06/tid-intel-drop-us-okd-dam-attack-as-fallback-plan/

 

The Ukrainian Army is run not by the Generals but by the PR Department

 

by Gilbert Doctorow

 

 

What can you expect from a government headed by a comic actor named Zelensky?  We see the answer to that question day by day in the way the Ukrainian armed forces are carrying out their much-anticipated spring counter-offensive:  it is being stage managed by the Public Relations team with scant regard for their cannon fodder army.

Why do I say this?  Because each of the latest military setbacks if not outright fiascos of military operations is being covered up by sensational side-shows intended to divert public attention at home and especially abroad from what is going on in the battlefield.

In the past couple of weeks, Zelensky was under enormous pressure from Washington to finally launch the much heralded counter-offensive. Notwithstanding his complaints that insufficient new military hardware had arrived to date and his demands on NATO countries to step up deliveries of tanks and F16 fighter jets, the Pentagon was insisting that the Ukrainians were now well equipped and should prove on the battlefield that this investment by the Americans and Europeans was justified, to prove that they can indeed push back the Russians and free all the occupied territory.

Yet, on the battlefield all that we saw was positional fighting and probing for weak spots in the Russian defense lines. There was no sign of a massive counter offensive until a day ago.  What we saw instead were incursions of Ukrainian special forces, mostly said to be mercenaries from Poland and elsewhere, across the border from the Ukrainian held Kharkov oblast into the neighboring RF oblast of Belgorod. And then, about four days ago, we saw the start of a destructive artillery and rocket attack on the border town of Shebekino, where 400 or 600 strikes on residential neighborhoods have been recorded in 24 hour periods. As we now see daily on Russian television, the whole population on the Russian side of the border across from Kharkov city is being evacuated and media there are discussing why their government has not done more to protect the frontier and to hit back.

 Of course, if the Kremlin were to do so it would fall into the trap of withdrawing forces from the front lines and weakening preparedness for whatever mass counter offensive may yet lie ahead. But it would be more appropriate to see in the border attacks on Belgorod not a military tactical purpose but a PR dimension, to capture the airwaves and divert attention from the still delayed massive offensive by providing some highly photogenic developments for the news crews.

Today’s number one item on Euronews is the destruction of part of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant in the southern region of Kherson to one side of the Dnepr river, with the consequence that water from the reservoir to feed the plant now is pouring out in uncontrolled fashion into the Dnepr. Let us remember that here the right (western) bank of the Dnepr, with the homonymous former capital town of the Kherson oblast, is held by the Ukrainians and the left (eastern) bank is held by the Russians. 

Threats to the large Kakhovka reservoir were discussed widely in local and global media more than eight months ago when the Russians abandoned Kherson city and withdrew all forces to the left bank of the Dnepr. At that time already, the Russians anticipated a possible breach of the dam with the consequence of dangerous, life threatening flooding downstream. They pulled back the local population from areas deemed to be most at danger. Moreover, as CNN reminds us, the shutdown of the hydroelectric power plant which ran on water from the reservoir might put at risk the not too distant Zaporozhie nuclear power plant, where critical equipment for its operation run on electricity generated by the Kakhovka plant. So the nuclear danger once again raises its ugly head.

Why was the functioning of the reservoir crippled now and who was responsible, the Russians or the Ukrainians?   CNN this morning puts on a mien of objective journalism by saying that both sides are pointing the finger at the other, and perhaps we will never know who is the guilty party. However, that feigned objectivity is phony from the get-go.

To understand unfailingly who unleashed the Kakhovka reservoir to flood the nearby region you have to look further afield to other news of the day coming from the battlefield and that, in turn, directs us to the PR Department of the Ukrainian armed forces. The Kakhovka blow-out was surely meant to divert attention from the results of yesterday’s first Ukrainian attempt at massive attack on the battlefield in southern Donetsk.  According to Russian reports, their own Vostok units with assistance from air cover and artillery “destroyed” (the current euphemism for “slaughtered”)1500 Ukrainian “live personnel” (current euphemism for “troops”) and destroyed 17 tanks, including 7 German Leopards, as well as armored personnel carriers and other vehicles and field weapons. This was a scandalous defeat and loss of human life in a hopeless offensive being waged only for the purpose of shaking out more money and arms from the Western sponsors of the Kiev regime. As the stories of flooding near Kakhovka and further downstream are amplified by our media, there is the hope that no one will notice the military defeat.

And what are the practical consequences of a military campaign run by the PR Department?  The answer is the shocking loss of Ukrainian men at arms.  Yesterday Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. who is campaigning against Joe Biden for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party in the 2024 U.S. elections publicly announced that approximately 350,000 Ukrainian combatants have died in the area of Russia’s Special Military Operation so far. Judging by yesterday’s massacre during the first big attack by the Ukrainians in the southern Donetsk oblast, the death toll will accelerate in the days ahead. Are any people of conscience listening in Europe or the USA?

No doubt some readers of my essay yesterday were wondering how I could know that it was the Ukrainians who were responsible for destroying the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant and consequent flooding of the adjacent settlements on both banks of the Dnepr and further downstream. Where is the proof someone wrote to me in the Comments section of my website. Where is the photo showing how the breach was made?

Sticklers like these are the same folks who always argue that we simple people never can know what is really going on. Only the “big boys” have all the facts.

I never have accepted such argumentation in favor of total passivity of the population and blind obedience to authorities who, as we so often discover, are neither as intelligent nor as well-meaning as what you were told in kindergarten.  I am quite satisfied that application of normal reasoning processes like cui bono and identification of flagrant contradictions in the narratives of one or another side, of flagrant contradictions within mainstream reporting are sufficient to arrive at the truth independently and without reliance on insider information or wild speculation.

In the given instance it was quite sufficient to rely on the Marxist thinking processes differentiating between “subjective” and “objective” causality.  And the “subjective” approach leaves no doubt about what happened on 5 June at the Kakhovka dam.

Why do I say that?  Because even today as I watched the BBC morning news there was extensive video coverage of the flooding along the lower reaches of the Dnepr river, but not a peep about the military fiasco of the Ukrainian army in the previous three days of its long awaited counter-offensive. Indeed, other news channels even made reference to a new commitment by Joe Biden to provide assistance to Ukraine in light of the destruction of the reservoir at Kakhovka.

Meanwhile, yesterday all Russian news outlets gave primary attention to a speech by Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu in which he set out in detail the results on the battlefield over the previous three days of fierce engagement of Russian and Ukrainian military forces along several points of the line of confrontation, in particular in southern Donetsk. This is a summary of his report in today’s Fontanka.ru :

In the words of the minister, on 4 June the 23rd and 31st mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine undertook an attempted attack in five areas but did not achieve success in any of them. On 5 June, the Ukrainian army attempted an attack in seven areas deploying the forces of five brigades. Shoigu stated that the attempted attacks were stopped, ‘and the enemy did not achieve his objectives while bearing considerable and incomparable losses.’

As Shoigu reported, over the course of three days of military action in all areas Ukraine lost up to 3715 soldiers, 52 tanks, 207 armored vehicles, 134 automobiles, 5 airplanes, 2 helicopters, 48 field artillery pieces and 53 drones.

The minister also named the losses of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation: in the course of repelling the attack 71 soldiers died and 210 were wounded. They lost 15 tanks, 9 troop carriers, 2 automobiles and 9 artillery pieces.

As the host of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov talk show remarked last night, this is the first time in the armed conflict that the Russians have officially reported the losses of both sides. Comparing directly the 71 Russian soldiers who died with the 3715 Ukrainians said to have lost their lives tells the whole story of the way the Ukrainian “counter-offensive” is playing out.  This is a massacre that in a just world would justify immediate cessation of all further arms deliveries to Ukraine and insistent demand for capitulation to end the senseless bloodshed.

Busted Big Time… U.S., NATO Ultimately Responsible for War Crime of Kakhovka Dam Destruction

 

The blowing up of the Kakhovka dam is intended to bolster flagging public support for NATO’s geopolitical machinations in Ukraine. The fraud of “democracies” no longer holds any water. 

The blowing up of the Kakhovka dam this week is a monumental war crime tantamount to using a weapon of mass destruction against a civilian population. The ultimate perpetrators are the United States and its NATO partners in crime.

An enormous facade has been breached. And we’re not primarily talking about a hydroelectric power plant – gravely serious though that is, and more on that below. What has happened this week is a bigger, more far-reaching breach: the unerring realization that the Western powers have burst their fraudulent images and can be seen for the criminal regimes that they are, along with their media organs of mass deception.

The full impact of the flooding of the Dnieper River in the Kherson region adjacent to the Black Sea will take weeks to assess. It is a catastrophe with huge humanitarian, economic, and ecological impacts. Cities, towns, villages, and farmlands have been inundated, affecting tens of thousands of people. The collapse of the dam is already putting the drinking-water supply to the Crimean Peninsula at grave risk, thereby widening the population impact to millions of people. There is also potential danger from crippling the cooling operations at the Zoporozhye Nuclear Power Plant located upstream from the dam.

Indisputably, by far, the biggest deleterious impact of the dam’s collapse is being felt in Russian-controlled regions of Kherson on the left bank of the Dnieper. Even the United States government-owned Radio Free Europe acknowledges that the destruction of Russian infrastructure is 10-fold that of the Kiev regime.

Yet, in an incredible display of servile propaganda, the Western media immediately sought to blame Russia for sabotaging the Kakhovka dam. This is in spite of overwhelming evidence that the destruction was carried out by the NATO-backed Kiev regime. So preposterous were the claims of Russian malfeasance that the Western governments have tended to backpedal on their initial accusations against Moscow, subsequently feigning doubts about who the perpetrators were.

Last October, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, had explicitly warned that the Kiev regime forces were attempting to blow up the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant. Using American and NATO-supplied missiles, the Ukrainian military has been shelling the dam over the past year. In December, the Washington Post even reported Ukrainian Major General Andriy Kovalchuk saying how his forces were testing a tactic to blow up the dam’s floodgates using U.S.-made HIMARS rockets.

Thus, the sabotage was in the works and there is no way that the United States and its NATO partners did not know about it. Indeed, furthermore, given that the U.S. and NATO are directing all Ukrainian military operations against Russia, the obvious conclusion is that the Western sponsors of the regime gave their authorization for the dam’s destruction.

The timing of the disaster is another key factor. This week saw the launch of the much-anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive. Russian forces appear to have repelled assaults further north from the Kherson region near frontlines in Zaporozhye and Donetsk areas. The counteroffensive has involved the deployment of NATO-issued tanks and recently supplied munitions. It seems plausible that the dam-busting strikes and consequent mass-flooding are aimed at distracting Russian forces and freeing up Ukrainian military units from the Dnieper right bank, which has become inaccessible by crossing, and therefore more easily defended from the Kiev regime’s point of view.

Another important timing factor is “Ukraine fatigue”, as noted by respected independent American analyst Scott Ritter. The Western public has become increasingly critical of NATO’s dangerous proxy war against Russia. The reckless financing of this conflict with hundreds of billions of dollars and euros – while Western economies are racked by austerity and recession – is causing growing opposition among the public toward their governments’ callous and cynical policy of “defending Ukraine to the last Ukrainian”. There is also a rising awareness that the Kiev regime is a corrupt Nazi-affiliated entity far from deserving of any support. Western media cannot even hide the fact that this regime’s armed forces are Nazi-emblem-toting fanatics. And Western governments are seen to be abhorrently sponsoring Ukrainian fascists in an unspoken proxy war to subjugate Russia. The historical significance of this revelation is profound and undermines the very foundations of presumed Western authority.

The blowing up of the dam accompanied by kabuki-style knee-jerk Western headlines accusing Russia of “eco-terrorism” and all sorts of other sensational smears is intended to bolster flagging public support for NATO’s geopolitical machinations in Ukraine.

In short, the sabotage is a false-flag provocation; a mass-casualty event orchestrated to shock public opinion against Russia as a “barbarous villain”.

In reality, however, the use of false-flag operations and mass-casualty events is a well-honed dirty-trick specialty of Washington going back to Operation Northwoods in the 1960s and before that.

The latest Western crime by stealth will rebound and concatenate with all past crimes in a way that reinforces culpability and public awareness.

In addition to the trusted criminological methods of questioning who gains and who loses, as well as the substantial record of misconduct and strategic motive, there is also the irrefutable forensic evidence of the NATO-backed regime firing missiles continuously at the Kakhovka dam for months. Video evidence shows the artillery fire coming from the right bank of the Dnieper River under the control of the Kiev regime.

It, therefore, stretches credulity to the point of absurdity that the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors through their mass media attempted to lay the blame on Russia.

The exact same oxymoronic logic was invoked following the blowing up of the Russian-owned Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea in September and the drone attacks on the Kremlin last month. Western media promptly tried to saturate public perception that Russia was somehow culpable in a fiendish ploy.

Similarly, for months the Kiev regime has been shelling the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant – the largest civilian nuclear station in continental Europe. All the ballistic evidence clearly shows who is trying to instigate a radiation catastrophe that would engulf all of Europe, if not the entire globe. The Kiev regime is trying its best to breach Russian air defenses at the ZNPP using U.S., British, and NATO-supplied missiles and targeting intelligence. Russia has repeatedly warned about this potential disaster at the United Nations in the exact same way it highlighted the danger regarding the sabotage of the Kakhovka dam. (The UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, is an abject tool under Western control as seen from its reluctance to attribute blame for the shelling of the ZNPP in spite of the glaring evidence. The Western media, too, promote the ridiculous notion that Russia is firing on its own military defenses at the plant!)

Russia has opened a criminal investigation into the Kakhovka dam sabotage, while the Kiev regime has quickly rejected calls for an international investigation.

As with the Nord Stream blasts, the Western governments will no doubt also contrive a cover-up to hide the real perpetrator. Western media have steadfastly refused to report credible claims by Seymour Hersh that the U.S. carried out the Nord Stream blasts under the orders of President Joe Biden. And several European states have suppressed the findings of their preliminary investigations, citing “national security interests”, that is, fear of U.S. retribution.

A touchstone matter concerning Western conduct is the total mismatch between its keenness for making wild accusations and its evident unwillingness to permit an independent investigation. That’s a general rule.

The Nazi Kiev regime knows no bounds in its depraved war crimes. The Bucha massacre last April in which civilians were executed by CIA-trained Azov Battalion death squads while Western media blamed Russia is out of the same vile playbook that the Kakhovka dam destruction was ordered, as well as the sabotage of the Nord Stream and the Crimea Bridge explosion. The Kiev regime is using a scorched-earth policy befitting a terrorist organization. No surprise there.

But ultimately the authors of this state terrorism are in Washington, London, and other NATO capitals arming the regime to the teeth with ever-more lethal firepower, financing its miserable existence, and providing obscene political support for its Nazi conduct. Ultimately, fascist foot soldiers reflect fascist leaders. The former may don military fatigues and sweaty T-shirts, the latter expensive cotton suits and ties. Nevertheless, they are all of the same sordid cloth.

The destruction wrought is utterly deplorable. However, one positive constructive thing is that there is now a growing public understanding around the world about the real, grotesque nature of Western regimes masquerading as “law-abiding democracies”.

Self-ordained Western “democracies” and self-deluded champions of “rules-based order” have in reality long been practiced in genocide, colonization, and imperialist aggression, supporting fascist dictatorships and terrorist entities the world over for their naked elite interests. The fraud of “democracies” no longer holds any water.
