Fort Russ – Joaquin Flores – (a special thanks to Kevin Deikoff for sending us The Times piece
|The Times.co,uk used this photo in their ‘Rebels to make dirty bomb’ piece, though this photo is from 10-20-14 when the nearly the opposite actually occurred: Kiev Junta forces bombed a chemical facility in Donetsk|
Let’s look at two significant news pieces, the first that Poroshenko called an emergency session of the war council today, and three days ago that western press starting to create buzz about Novorossiyan ‘rebels’ creating a ‘dirty bomb’. It is difficult not to want to put these together and concede the possibility that something is in the works.
There are good reasons for this, there is not only a precedent for these in this conflict, but they arose at similar times. The last few times that the US tried this, with the downing of MH-17 and then the ‘shelling of Mariupol’ false flag, the US felt unable gain the upper hand either through regular proxy combat or its policy of terrorism upon civilians.
While nothing is guaranteed to happen, this definitely means we should be on the look out for such an event in the very near future.
Oleg Tsarev of the DPR also expressed similar concerns, in a piece which we translated for Fort Russ – that can be read here: https://www.fort-russ.com/2015/08/03/why-did-times-publish-article-abou/
Our role as public servants, citizen media, is to inoculate mass publics against any attempt to pin a future ‘chemical attack’ on the Novorossiyan armies. Even if nothing comes of it this time, it doesn’t rule out that they had something in the works. Many analysts have indicated that publicizing and ‘calling out’ such false flag attempts in their early stages can actually hedge the US Empire’s bets that they can pull it off.
Of course, the endemically Russophobic and pro-imperialist Times.co.uk scribbles their piece for good reason; they have a job to do, which is creating near-term expectation that the ‘Ruskies’ are back to their old evil tricks, and are planning something soon.
But as we’ve seen before, the photo used to generate clicks and reads, and to give the veil of ‘truth’ as in sort of suggesting ‘photographic evidence’, is not what they are writing about. Just as in the conflicts in Syria and elsewhere, it depicts the effects of something the US backed side has done.
We reverse searched this image through Google, and found that it does not depict anything the ‘Russians did’, but in fact is a photo from October 20th, 2014, of a chemical plant in Donetsk that was shelled by the UAF. Fancy that.
Also, Kevin Deikoff notes: “Max Tucker, writer of this piece, is a western intelligence asset. He speaks Russian and studied history for 3 years at the University of Bristol(?). “Articles” by him started appearing in 2013 as he was supposedly working for 3.5yrs exposing human rights abuses in Ukraine and the South Caucasus as Amnesty International’s expert in the region. Suddenly, he appears as news editor for the Kiev Post in December 2014. Now he puts together ‘pieces’ for the Times, News Week, and others. http://ukrcanco.org/maxim-tucker-putin-doesn-t-respond…/ “
“‘Max Tucker’ has recently added ‘media strategist’ to his journalist description.’Max Tucker’ doesn’t seem to have much of a history. Maxim Shkolnik, of Tucker, Georgia, was arrested for trafficking cocaine 01-09-2007 – not that these people are one and the same.”
