When I woke up this morning, I didn’t want to write another article on the Russia-Ukraine issue, I really didn’t. I already wrote one a couple weeks ago and there wasn’t anything left to add. After all, what the hell do I know about Russia or Ukraine? I’m not Russian or Ukrainian, I’ve never visited either country, and I certainly don’t have a degree in Russian-Ukrainian relations, if such a thing even exists—I’m just some jerk sitting in his sweatpants, eating Pringles, and reading the news on a busted laptop.
Are US assurances to Russia about no NATO expansion documented? All I see is this rather vague passage:
"Mending fences would include Gore’s description to Yeltsin of the parallel NATO and U.S.-Russia tracks as spaceships docking simultaneously and very carefully, and Gore and then Clinton assuring the Russians (but not in writing, as Kozyrev kept asking for) that no NATO action on new members would happen before the 1995 Duma elections or the 1996 presidential elections in Russia."
You're old enough to remember 2003 and fool me once comment make me sad. Because Im old enough to remember the 2003 Iraq invasion the first time it happened, in 1991. They dont need to fool you twice, our lives arent that long.
This was a great critique but you’re wasting your breath. The fact that you can connect these media tactics back to 2003 shows this goes on and on and on regardless of how much criticism there is. These fake journalists are not deterred. The worst part is how social media criticism is censored for disinformation while this type of legacy media bullshit is left untouched and these people give Pulitzer Prizes to each other for straight up lies.
