How Russia is Losing the Information Warfare Thanks to RT

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” —Proverbs 18

In light of today’s threats by Saudi Arabia to send its own soldiers (or rather bribed mercenaries) and warplanes (U.S.-British planes) into Syria to kill Russians and Syrians, a new discussion centered on the instrumentality of psychological warfare (PSYOP/INFORMATION OPERATIONS/ STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS) as a solution and defense against such attacks, becomes absolutely necessary. 

Failure to utilize this weapon is not only strategically ignorant, but socio-politically suicidal given the degree to which the Gulf Nations, the U.S., and NATO have been developing and metastasizing it into all their public policies, statements, and conflict resolution negotiations.

Recently I gave an interview to Press TV on Russian political leadership’s chronic failure to learn from its past defeats and ongoing vulnerabilities in the current information war being waged between the forces of chaos and the forces of stability in the Middle East—or more specifically between the United States-NATO coalition and the Russia-China-Iran coalition.

Essentially the message was how Moscow’s reactions to U.S. propaganda “have been very tepid, very restrained,” and this simply emboldens and encourages the United States to continue giving more weapons to terrorists in Syria.  Additionally, Russia’s restrained reaction over US support for militants in Syria only emboldens the Americans in their efforts against Russia in Ukraine and elsewhere.

The question I then asked was, “When will Russia learn?”  When will it learn about such sad realities as the fact that current U.S. political, military, and media elites shamelessly and incessantly try to negatively brand Russia as a 2nd rate nation of drunks, knuckle-dragging Neanderthals, and traitors to the Utopian delusion of global communism (and therefore arch-enemies of the modern Democratic party). 

I even wrote senior level staff at Russia Today (RT News), and challenged them, saying:

“You need to do a show on this if you're serious about helping Russia win this war... Otherwise  they may lose it very easily and very quickly…and then so will the world.                                    

Here’s the lesson: If You don't win the psychological war, you lose it; and if you lose the psychological war, you lose the kinetic war, and if you lose the kinetic war then Russia itself and its people are the next target...

Also, whether you know it or not, these young leftist kids (none of whom have been in the military, been in a combat zone, worn the uniform, or sworn an oath to anything) who are now working at RT America in Washington DC, are really damaging and corrupting the Russian Orthodox conservative-libertarian brand by snidely criticizing and attacking the Oregon protesters and similar patriot movements in America.  My God, these American militia types are the only people who support you in America, and you are stigmatizing them with the same brush the mainstream media uses?!  Come on, Stop and think. "Let us reason together."  Get some new people at the US desks who are ferocious and intense.   These kids are metrosexually confused, without loyalty, and arrogantly abounding in moral ignorance--and Russia suffers because of this information.  Watch this interview and tell me where I'm wrong.”

I confess political correctness and bashfulness are not my strongest suits, but that’s for another discussion, another day. 

As for today, the answer I received for my interview’s thesis and posited question was silence.  Therefore, my conclusion, based on RT’s silence, is quite simple:  The Russians have not learned yet.  Hopefully this article will help them, finally, crack the code—for the benefit of all mankind.

THE LANGUAGE OF WAR

In the information war being orchestrated by America and its whore-servant NATO, what will determine if Russia survives, wins, or loses?  The short answer is:  WORDS.

Why?  Simply put, words give birth to war, feed it, or kill it.

To put it another way, the secret to victory in war is controlling the words and symbols which define it.  This controls the hearts and minds that imagine and make war.

Politicians may choreograph the dance of war, but the public—the mentally average, amoral-apolitical, taxpaying people—control the music; and politicians know this.  Subsequently, politicians subtly try and distract the public and lead them away from fully understanding their power by hypnotizing them with continuously evolving imaginary crises (terrorism, climate change, social justice, feminist penis envy, etc.); which they then manipulate, distort, and spin in a way only the politician’s deceptive rhetoric and millionaire trust-fund relationships can claim the clairvoyance to solve.  Hence, politicians create problems, and then stretch and diversify them—usually enriching themselves under the table in the process—in order to justify their political existence.

THE MECHANICS OF WAR

War is not only politics by other means, but as such, a kaleidoscopic chess game in constant motion inspired by fear, lust, and myth.  In other words war is multidimensional, and he who understands this and is most skilled at it, manages war like a spider feels its web:  he positions himself at the center and senses the movement of every strand—every element of statecraft—which in modern times might be defined as the strands of internet communication, media stories, political statements, banking, defense contractor stocks and stock market blips, pop culture, religious prophecies, and grass-roots social movements—all of which synthesize into feelings, which translate into interpretations, and then animate into desires and behaviors.

To win in war requires the defining and disintegrating of language simultaneously. 

Specifically, the victor must define the political, religious, and mythic language and symbols structuring and perpetuating the conflict, while at the same time disintegrating the language of his opponent.

Language is the most powerful force in the universe, because it controls man like the wind controls a kite.  In the mythological sense, it’s why the Norse God Loki was gagged and forced to wear a mouth cover—to protect listeners from being beguiled helpless by his irresistible words and tone.

Language itself is multidimensional, penetrating all defensive training and mental discipline to seep into the subconscious, using tones that transport memory back to childhood innocence, and poetic cadences that trick mental defenses into self defeat.

CURRENT INFORMATION WAR

Today, thanks to the exceptional moral corruption and blind patriotism impediment in Obama’s modern America, we see a schizophrenic information war between the U.S. and Russia in full color and accompanied by stereo sound on an almost hourly basis.  It seems that every Western newspaper, TV channel, and magazine castrated by money, has prostituted its “Constitutional birthright” to the free-press, and prostrated itself to be used like a rubber blow-up doll for any liberal democrat social experiment that may darken the imagination or ruin character.  And the first consequence of this intellectual whoredom, is our sensitivity towards truth and honor, as described in this interview on the effects of false flag lies on American soldiers. 

For example, today—February 11, 2016—on RT News (Russia Today) Col. Steve Warren spokesman for the U.S. led anti-Daesh coalition tried to show that Russian airstrikes were killing civilians instead of ISIS/ISISL/DAESH terrorists, and propping up Syrian President Assad.  Warren was quoted as saying at a press conference:

ISIL is virtually non-existent in that part of Syria…Russia can no longer credibly claim that its air strikes there are doing anything other than supporting regime (Assad) forces.  With the destruction of the two main hospitals in Aleppo by Russian and regime attacks, over 50K Syrians are now without any axis to life-sustaining assistance.

Of course this was refuted by Murad Gazdiev (twitter: @muradort) who described this statement and similar messages from the U.S. as “a claim without proof, without coordinates of any kind, with no timing, with no date,” etc.

Additionally, Ms. Anissa Naouai, senior political correspondent for RT, and host of the show In the Now, exposed how the French media also joined the criticism of Russian airstrikes, but then amazingly—or desperately—stole film footage of Russian attacks and tried to claim it its own.  Naouai showed how this footage was clearly plagiarized video of Russian planes bombing ISIL tanker trucks illegally transporting oil into Turkey. The French were simply, and shamelessly, pretending these Russian air strikes were NATO’s airstrikes, in order to exaggerate NATO capability and propagandize people against Russia.  Quite amazing.

Naouai  described how the French channel misrepresented the Russia air strikes as a coalition air strike, which can be confirmed by looking at the Russian Defense Ministry official YouTube page.

According to Naouai, “They want you to believe Russian strikes are killing civilians, but US strikes don’t.”

Of course, the Russian countermove to this was Igor Konashenko, Defense Ministry Spokesman, responding to the U.S.-NATO claims and criticisms of the Russian air strikes, saying:

US jets bombed Aleppo on Wednesday…We analyzed all the targets hit in Aleppo, Russian planes didn’t appear near Aleppo…First of all Russian planes didn’t appear near Aleppo, the closest target hit was 20 km from the city.  Only so called anti-ISIL coalition planes and drones have been flying over Aleppo.    On Wednesday at 13:55, two U.S. warplanes entered Syrian airspace from Turkey and fully bombed two targets in the city.

BREAKING THE TRANCE

If words are the key to winning the INFORMATION WAR, then the next question becomes, what is the language to use in communicating to the American mind?

Answer:  It is language that describes the life decades of the American experience: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and the emotions of frustration, failure, fear, sadness.

Why?  To achieve victory in psychological warfare the winner isolates and sensationalizes the language structuring the enemy’s worst feelings of identity, guilt, regret, and hopelessness.

To review, we are in a war of words, though only very few understand it.  The weapons of Psychological Warfare are words, feelings, symbols, instincts, intuition, myths, religion, appetites, dreams, lusts, fears, addictions, fantasies, hopes, pleasures.

Admittedly, the best at it are the British MI6, given the British mix of historical perspective, poetically metrosexual sensitivity, and preternatural acrobatic communication skills.  In second place is the Mossad, because they are good and also have no morals.  In third place is the CIA (specifically the Special Activities Unit at Fort Bragg, North Carolina) because they have the money, and the illegal drug running and Swiss Banks that launder the money and use it to routinely flood the airwaves with paid propaganda that triggers extremism and flashbang-like false flag attacks at places such as Boston Marathons, movie theaters, and California’s Special Needs clinics; and then wash away their tracks and investigators bribes and government jobs.  In last place, comes the Russian Spetznatz, and the Chinese.

PUTIN’S PSYOP                          

A very good article that analyzes some of the psychological warfare platforms being explored, developed, or applied by President Vladimir Putin, is Professor Tony Hall’s work entitled: “Putin meets the propaganda of the American war machine with a plan for healthy food:  Countering the excesses of deregulation gone wild.

Professor Hall writes:

This militarized sabotage from within the heavily weaponized West is apparently well understood by Putin. The Russian leader is one of the few top executives in the world who regularly leaves his prepared talking points to speak extemporaneously on the major issues of the day.

In the real or imagined talk where Putin is said to have referred to the heavily vaccinated fat man slumped before his TV in a sugar-induced stupor, Putin is reported to have said:

“We as a species have the choice to continue to develop our bodies and brains in a healthy upward trajectory, or we can follow the Western example of recent decades and intentionally poison our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food that should be classified as a dangerous, addictive drug.”

  […]

Putin’s reported comments about the degraded Western fat man have been bouncing around the Internet ever since they were introduced on YourNewsWire in mid-January. Although Putin’s interpreters may well have taken some artistic license in coming up with the description of the squalid conditions in the American heartland, the statements have been given wide cyberspace currency because they ring true. Putin’s depiction of the fructose-addled over-vaccinated fat man gives new meaning to the banality of evil and the evil of banality.

The American Dream is indeed becoming for many a nightmare that extends far beyond the boundaries of the United States. Western governments at all levels have been infiltrated, subverted, and stolen away from popular control by corporate lobbyists. The middle class dwindles. A political economy of deception, scams, corruption, aggressive war and asset stripping triumphs over a political economy economy of genuine productivity, integrity, enterprise, innovation and expertise.   

The slide into the corruption of crony corporatism plays out in the transformation of citizens into debt slaves, dead beats, con artists, Islamophobes, jailbirds and lab rats. Disempowered former citizens become unwitting subjects of unregulated human experiments. These experiments on human subjects are conceived and implemented by mad scientists employed by Big Pharma, Big GMO, Big Factory Farming, Big Oil, Big Propaganda, and Big Info-Entertainment. This list is far from complete.

Vladimir Putin is making it perfectly clear that he refuses to go along with this process of “intentionally poisoning our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food.” The Russian president has instead opted to use his authority in the effort to protect the Russian people from being contaminated by at least some of the pollutants menacing humanity.

To advance this goal Putin seeks to make Russia the world’s premier source of healthy, organic, non-GMO food. As Putin explained to the Russian Parliament in 2015, "We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands and pure water resources – Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing."

Much of the discussion about food safety has happened in and around the Security Council of the Russian Federation. The inclusion of, for instance, consideration of Genetically Modified Food, GMOs, in the discourse on Russian national security contrasts dramatically with the equivalent discourse in the United States. In the USA citizens are encouraged to identify their Muslim neighbours rather than the food on supermarket shelves as the primary threats to their wellbeing.  

The article goes on to say:

The failure of American democracy can very much be connected to the failure to regulate instruments of mass media. With some few exceptions the big media cartels deprive citizens of the comprehensive, balanced and evidence-based information we require to make informed decisions in the electoral process. The huge monopolies of communications that have emerged from deregulation tend to produce atrocious monocultures of the mind. The main preoccupation of those that run the mainstream media seems to be to sell the public on committing vast resources to the waging of aggressive warfare pointed primarily at predominantly Muslim populations

In the tradition of Operation Gladio designed by NATO to make Europeans hate communism, the Cold War’s replacement is founded on providing a steady stream of false flag terrorism with the aim of polluting the mental atmosphere. Most of the big media cartels have incorporated instruments of the richly-funded pro-Zionist Islamophobia Industry highlighting various forms of sloganeering and imagery whose goal is to generate anti-Muslim hysteria.

 

The pattern is illustrated by the close relationship between the New York Times and Rita Katz’s Site Intelligence Group, a sophisticated PR firm devoted to manufacturing hatred towards Muslims. This cultivation of hatred and fear is essential to the psychological operation of the Global War of False Flag Terrorism. 

The unregulated media conglomerates have thus been allowed to become core agencies of the unregulated and increasingly privatized military-industrial complex. When he was departing the White House in 1961, former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower invented this term, the military-industrial complex, as he warned us about its potential to spawn the iron rule of an authoritarian dictatorship. Eisenhower’s worst fears are now upon us. The military-industrial-banking-media complex has largely divorced itself from any attachments to the national interests of the countries where it operates.

[…]

What remains to be seen is whether or not the millions of borderline autistic fat men and women will be able to rouse themselves enough from the hypnotic spell of TV and the addictive wares of Big Pharma. If such an awakening was to take place the chances would be greater of bringing about a global revolution aimed at the ascent of the culture of life over the culture of death. Putin’s actions to promote healthy living with robust government regulation over the production of safe organic and non-GMO food helps set in motion a larger international movement to return our governments to the task of protecting the public interest and the common good?

CONCLUSION

Henry Ward Beecher said it best: “Liberty is the soul’s right to breathe and, when it cannot take a long breath, laws are girdled too tight.”  Americans are suffocating under the tightening police-state grip that Washington DC has been strangling them with since 2001, and if Putin was smart, he would use it to his advantage—and for mankind’s.

Here is an example of a PSYOP campaign which Russia could theoretically materialize into words, and strategically communicate throughout its diplomatic, media, and military levels.  President Putin himself would initiate the action, with a speech targeting Americans, spoken through the world’s platform at the United Nations.  

It is said that if a person lies to you, he is showing contempt for you.  Well, my American friends, you must know this… your politicians are telling you one thing, and doing the opposite; they are treating you as a pawn and their paycheck, and not their employer.  They are manipulating you to serve their ends.  As the double-tongued snake Henry Kissinger said, ‘all military men are dumb animals to be manipulated on the chess board.’ 

And your American military were told a lie.  They were told their country had been attacked, when in reality certain actors in the American government had manufactured a false attack, and the proof can be seen in plain view and in black and white.  It can be seen in the plain view of the fall of building 7, the mistake made by the news station in Britain reporting live that the building had “collapsed” when in fact it had not yet—quickly snuffing out the video feed when they realized their slip.  Then the firemen themselves reporting demolition charges going off, and the impossible powdery collapse at free-fall speed of the two towers and building 7.

Then the Pentagon, no plane, no burnt grass following the explosion, and all lights posts remaining—which should have been struck by the plane. 

Then Pennsylvania, the missing plane, and the gaping hole in the ground being an old pit dug from before, and no bodies, and the coroner report of such.

All of which indicate a designed attack, to trigger justification of a war, that would lead to Middle East Resource domination, in order to permanently try and protect the petrodollar. 

The miscalculation was the human factor—the Sunni-Shia animosity, and the emotional retardation of the people in the region and their inability to transcend their differences.

Why is the United States saying to its people that it is fighting ISIS, but the evidence shows without any doubt that the U.S. has been sending ISIS trucks, tanks, jeeps, machine guns, bombs and bullets, and uniforms?  Is this the uniform of the new U.S. Mercenary army being used to wage war and circumvent the congress of the United States?

Why is the United States giving money to ISIS?  Why did the U.S. allow 19,000 Swiss Bank accounts continue to fund terrorism, and then throw the whistleblowers who brought this to the attention of Obama administration in Prison?  Specifically, why did Hillary Clinton make a deal to cover these bank accounts up and protect the banks involved in laundering money for ISIS, such as the account of Saudi Arabian prince and terrorist financier, Abdullah Azziz?  Why was the military whistleblowing report to Congress covered up and the military officer imprisoned for exposing it?  We thought the United States promised a transparent and honest government that valued whistleblowers expose corruption, fraud, and waste in the U.S. government?

Why is the U.S. financing terrorism in violation of the United Nations Resolutions, as well as the Executive Orders of the President?

Does law mean nothing?

The only answer we can see is that the United States is doing all of this because they are lying to the American people, and funding ISIS and trying to use them to destabilize governments and countries…. but this is now blowing back on America and Europe and it is causing catastrophic destruction to the European nations.  It is threatening the safety and culture of Christian Europe and America, is a blatant violation of the trust the people of American and Europe have put into their elected leaders.

As Russians, we know better than anyone the danger and sickness behind putting an unelected bureaucracy, such as the one in Brussels, or in Washington DC, in charge of regulating the lives, decisions, and future of men and women, without giving any consideration to the people they represent.  Instead, they lust after the money and power which always comes with political corruption and “bending the rules”, which is what we see going on now with the masses of refugees invading Europe.

Let the Russian people stand with the people of Europe and the people of America, and not with their governments, because the governments have lied to both Americans and Europeans, and betrayed them and have caused all of this destruction and bloodshed. 

I speak for Russia, I speak the truth, and I invite all mankind who love and speak the truth to help us make a better world by throwing off the shackles of such a tyrannical American government…for the sake of all mankind.  I await your response.

Time will tell if Americans—and the world—have the guts to give him a decent response, and in so doing liberate themselves from the fear that they have been poisoning their own souls with for far too long.
