Getting tired of the whole "anti Russia" campaign
Don't get me wrong here: I'm not claiming Russia is a completely misunderstood nation where everything is as it should be. But I am growing extremely tired of the constant display of double morales and the plain out bias against Russia. No, their government may not be perfect, but can you really say the ones in the "free" West are?
I mean... When Putin gets (re)elected you can pretty much be sure what his line of thought will be and his vision to rule the country. Here in the West we often get told that we should vote for "Party A" because they plan on doing Y. Which is important and therefor deserves our vote. Yet once they do manage to find themselves elected it's not uncommon for them to do a 180 degree turn and apply the unpopular Z instead. Because yeah, things change and all. I call that plain out lying in order to get into office, but... obviously they will never take action against that because it seems everyone is doing it.
So how exactly is this "democratic system" any more fair in comparison with that of Russia, hmm?
Oh, I know: Russia is bad because they annexed the Krim (a part of the Ukraine where everyone spoke Russian in the first place anyway). Of course we'll just ignore the US false flag invasion of Iraq and pretty much ruling the whole country by force.
Or think about the last incident in England: they were sure that the Russian intelligence had performed an assassination with nerve gas. The British government has even removed several Russian diplomats. And now there's the result of the investigation of said nerve gas and what a shock: there is no hard evidence that the gas originated from Russia at all.
I mean... What we're seeing here is that if someone shoots someone else with an AK47 ("Kalashnikov") then there will be plenty of politicians who will immediately blame Russia because it's obvious that they were behind it given the Russian origin of the weapon. How is that any fair?
To me this whole Facebook campaign is merely another chapter in the Russian hate campaign and I really hope it backfires. This is merely (ab)using the constant negative bias against Russia in hopes of scoring one for your own.
Once again: I'm not claiming Russia is the perfectly innocent misunderstood country. But I also think they do not deserve this constantly ongoing hate campaign. All based on speculations, rumors and "what if's".
Heck, if you think Russia is bad go look at some South African countries. Not only are they usually ruled with an iron fist (meaning: it's not uncommon to get shot dead without any form of trial "because"), they also often let the population starve to death because it's easier to control them. While the rules live in luxurious mansions the general population merely tries to get enough food on the table every single day.
Yet we're not talking any action against that. Naah, instead we'll sent them tons of money every once in a while so that the rulers become even MORE wealthy. Hmm, maybe we can blame that on the Russians as well?
