When you recruit one of the most famous Hollywood actors to attack Russia through a sloppy and obsolete type of propaganda, it shows - above all - that you are desperate to provoke a conflict.
Despite zero evidence about the alleged 'Russian intervention' (whatever that means) in the latest US elections, the US sinister syndicate of for-profit-wars continues to cultivate a Cold War 2.0 climate with the ultimate target to drag Russia into a warm conflict.
In a desperate effort to persuade the US public opinion about the 'Russian intervention', this evil syndicate created the known video with Morgan Freeman to make Americans believe that Russia is a real threat. We don't know where to start: from the Cold War language very similar to the McCarthyism era? from the fairytale-style narrative as if it has been made for 10-year old kids? from the fact that the creators of the video apparently believe that they have to face a totally naive audience? or, maybe, from the laughable conclusion that "for 241 years" the US democracy "has been a shining example to the world of what we can all aspire to"?
As Max Blumenthal says, speaking to The Real News:
It's sad for Morgan Freeman, and I think whatever you think about Russia, you can agree with me that this is probably his worst role since Driving Miss Daisy. Now he's driving, basically, the PNAC train, Project for a New American Century, driving the neocons. This is highly unusual for me, maybe I'm wrong here, to hear a black American say that America has been a shining example of democracy for 241 years. It sounds like something a neocon would write in a script and put for Morgan Freeman in a teleprompter. 200 years ago, or longer, he would have been scrubbing Thomas Jefferson's chamberpot, so this is just deeply disturbing American exceptionalism.
Beyond that, Morgan Freeman has basically been brought into this by Rob Reiner, who's been brought in by a cast of neocons, not just unindicted Iraq War criminal David Frum, who crafted the axis of evil phrase, which has helped spread instability and death around the world, but Max Boot, the neoconservative pundit and self-styled historian who's never met a war he didn't like.
We also have James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence and NSA director affiliated with this group, the Committee to Investigate Russia. Max Boot is a fellow at the Institute for the Study of War, which is run by Kimberly Kagan, who's part of the neoconservative Kagan dynasty.
The Institute for the Study of War is funded primarily by the arms industry and surveillance industry, and their job is basically to gin up wars and consult for generals, and make a windfall profit in the process.
They are attempting to manufacture a catalyzing event through the narrative of Trump-Russia collusion in order to ramp up hostilities with Russia, not just in Russia's near abroad in Ukraine, but also in Syria and across the world. This is an incredibly dangerous prospect.
No further investigation needed. Again, this video shows one thing: the degree of determination of the US neocon/neoliberal establishment to drag Russia to war.
