Western media scripting yet another 'Russian invasion', this time in Libya

The 28 member states of the anti-Russia bloc known as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), home to over 900 million fact-starved dwellers, are again grazing at the MSM trough, consuming a meal that leaves one wondering, ‘Where’s the beef?’

Since Russophobic stories are a dime a dozen across much of NATO-occupied territory, you would be forgiven for missing the latest bit of pseudo-news masquerading as legitimate journalism. According to this latest lapse into fantasy land, Russia, the Sasquatch beast from the East, deeply feared yet rarely photographed in the wild, has turned its attention to Libya. You know, because Russia doesn't have enough problems already.

According to a combined report from the Guardian and Reuters, “US officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Washington (sic) had observed what appeared to be Russian special operations forces and drones at Sidi Barrani, about 60 miles (100km) from the Egypt-Libya border.” The report went on to quote yet more publicity-shy officials, this time “Egyptian security sources,” who described a “22-member Russian special forces unit, but declined to discuss its mission.

So here we have, once again, lots of anonymous assumptions but not a single satellite image, not a single cell-phone picture, not a single verifiable source with a name badge. This sort of reporting may have been acceptable in the early 19th century before the advent of electricity, but certainly not in the high-powered 21st. So what we have here is more cheap talk to hawk the myth of 'Russian aggression' and even more military hardware.

Russia, understandably exasperated with such lame, scurrilous reporting, responded harshly to the charges. In fact, the Defense Ministry’s official spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, took the rather unprecedented step of calling out Reuters by name.

Some Western media have been disturbing the public with such reports, citing anonymous sources for several years now,” Konashenkov said. “And ever more foolish and indecent with regard to American intelligence are the words of the ‘source’ quoted by Reuters, who said that ‘intelligence activity of the United States into the [actions] of the Russian military are complicated because of the involvement of contractors and agents in civilian clothes.’

Egypt also dismissed the Reuters report.

There is no foreign soldier from any foreign country on Egyptian soil," Egyptian army spokesman Tamer al-Rifai said, as cited by Reuters, no less. "This is a matter of sovereignty.

Now before we blow a gasket, let’s calmly recall exactly how we got to this disastrous point in US-Russia relations.
