Washington’s Smear Campaign: Lambasting Russia for Doping

This article was first published on May 19th, 2016. In recent developments Russia has been excluded from the Olympics in a dirty tricks operation.

This morning the New York Times sported these headlines “Justice Department Opens Investigation into Russian Doping Scandal” – proudly describing how US Justice (sic-sic) is going to investigate Russian doping. Any opportunity is good for denigrating Russia, foremost Vladimir Putin. It’s his fault, since Sochi is ‘his’ town anyway – Sochi, where the alleged doping took place, of course, among many other sports events, where Russians participate.

It borders on the ridiculous – no, it is abjectly stupid, what the western presstitute media, led by the US is capable of doing.

Does it ever occur to anyone with a half-brain left that US athletes have been caught en masse doping in sports events; that the US is the ‘pivot’ of all dope, as it is the trading place of drugs, where official government agencies, like the CIA and DEA are making some ‘extra cash’ – hundreds of millions a year – by smuggling and clandestinely dealing with heroin and cocaine under the guise of, for example the Plan Colombia.

Unmarked CIA planes have been observed coming from Afghanistan to Qatar or Saudi Arabia, unloading their poppy-bootie for on-shipment to the drug centers of Europe, Asia and, of course, the biggest market place of all – the Unites States of America.

I couldn’t help writing an open letter to the NYT Editor – which, of course, he will not publish. But, it is my hunch that it should be read, just for the record. Here it is.

Dear NYT Editor,

You Americans! [Government and Media]- who think you are on top of the world – on top of the world of murderers and human rights abusers alright – to take every opportunity to attack Russia; now it’s for doping.

Who has ever investigated US doping – the US, the kings of drug trading throughout the world?

Would anybody dare to investigate US sportspeople? For fear of ‘sanctions’?

Give the world a break and step back!

If and when your empire falls, there will be days-and-days of Fiesta throughout the world – streets will be filled with people, hugging and kissing in solidarity – getting rid of the terror of fear Washington is planting throughout the world, the forced ‘regime changes’ – and now doping, attacking Russia, since everything is good for denigrating someone who shows resistance to the self-declared US hegemon.

Americans – think about it – wake up!

Will you print this, dear NYT Editor?
