Putin: US / NATO is irreversibly pushing the world towards nuclear war
This is a short portion of Vladimir Putin's meeting with journalists in St. Petersburg on June 17th. He is talking about the terrible threat that NATO poses to Russia and to the world.
He makes a statement about the role that the press plays in reporting official lies. His words are well worth remembering.
"It's only that you tell tall-tales too and you buy it, and spread it to the citizens of your countries. Your people in turn do not feel a sense of the impending danger, this is what worries me. How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? While they pretend that nothing's going on. I don't know how to get through to you anymore."
Simply put, we are closer than ever to an all out nuclear conflagration because of the United States. But neither the corporate media nor any presidential candidate has pointed this out. Americans are sheep on the verge of slaughter and don't even know it. The danger has been disappeared from public discourse. The media decision to act as stenographers for presidents is truly criminal.
