In a dramatic UN Security Council speech, Blinken lays out Russian false flag 'chemical attack' claims.
"The information I shared here is corroborated by what we've observed unfolding in plain sight before our eyes for months. And remember that while Russia has repeatedly mocked our warnings and concerns as melodrama and nonsense, they've been steadily gathering more than 150,000 troops on Ukraine's borders as well as the capabilities to undertake a large military assault. It isn't just us seeing this. Allies and partners see the same thing," America's top diplomat said.
As if expecting that all the current White House timeframe specific predictions will once again not materialize, Blinken added the critical proviso in the UN address: "If Russia doesn't attack Ukraine, then we will be relieved that Russia altered direction and proven our projections wrong." He followed with: "We’ll gladly take any criticism that anyone directs at us."
"Russia says it's pulling down those forces," he said. "We do not see that occurring on the ground. Our information suggests clearly that these forces, including ground troops, aircraft, ships, are ready to launch an attack against Ukraine in the coming days."
Given the UNSC environment, Blinken notably argued that Russia at this moment doesn't simply constitute a threat to Ukraine, but to "every country in the world"...
"This crisis directly affects every member of this council and every country in the world, because the basic principles that sustain peace and security, principles that were enshrined in the wake of two world wars and the Cold War, are under threat — the principle that one country cannot change the borders of another by force," Blinken said.
He still held out the potential for dialogue, appealing directly to his Russian counter part Sergey Lavrov: "These meetings can pave the way for a summit of key leaders in the context of de-escalation, to establish understandings on our mutual security concerns," he said.
But arguably the most startling and dramatic portion of Blinken's address, was his echoing the recent White House assertions that Russia is planning a false flag assault as a justification for invasion:
"Here's what the world may expect to see develop, in fact it's occurring right now, today... First, Russia aims to construct a pretext for its attack: this may be a violent event that Russia will blame on Ukraine, or an outlandish accusation that Russia would raise against the Ukrainian government."
He emphasized that this "Russia-manufactured" excuse may come in the form of a "fake or actual strike using chemical weapons".
He described the disturbing alleged scenarios:
"It may be a contrived so-called terrorist blast inside Russia, the invented finding of the mass grave, a staged drone strike against civilians, or a phony - even a real - attack employing chemical weapons."
This false flag story had already been anticipated by the White House weeks ago, when Jen Psaki said:
"As part of its objectives, Russia’s creating the infrastructure to have the option of fabricating a pretext for invasion. We have evidence that indicates Russia has already pre-positioned a squad of agents to perform a false flag operation in eastern Ukraine. The agents are trained in urban warfare and in utilizing explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against Russia’s own proxy troops."
And more recently Ned Price was absolutely humiliated when he floated the accusations before an astonished press pool, including Associated Press journalist Matt Lee:
However, we've not entered "Alex Jones territory" as Lee comically charged, given that as of this last UNSC address, it's more like Colin Powell area.
When challenged for evidence by a journalist immediately after the speech, Biden waved his hand and laughed off the need for proof or any degree of specific sourcing...
As though anticipating the Iraq War similarities, Blinken had noted in his Thursday speech:
"Some have called into question our findings, noting similar occasions where intelligence finally did not bear out. But let me be clear: I am here today not to launch a war, but to avert one."
Meanwhile, Russia's foreign ministry has again declared, "No ‘Russian invasion’ into Ukraine the US and its allies have been talking about since September has taken place or is planned."
And oddly, phrases like "cherry-picking" intelligence are once again entering the mainstream. Here we go again.
Update: False Flag, More Fear Porn Coming Out of The White House: Biden Rambling, Russia Might Invade Ukraine “As Soon As Tomorrow” or Next Week, or Sometime!
The White House’s New Friday Ukraine Panic Porn Is Called “Distraction & Disinformation” by Russia Despite the administration’s usual contradictory message, on the one hand serving up another dose of afternoon panic and market turmoil over reports that Russia will invade Ukraine in a matter of days (it’s been “days” and “imminent” for several weeks at this point), nothing appears to have changed on the ground at the Russia-Ukraine border. Russian forces have reportedly pushed closer to the border, according to Blinken. Multiple White House officials have told various major US news outlets that the US now believes Putin has chose to invade Ukraine – though in a public news briefing, Jake Sullivan painted a mixed picture, telling US citizens to leave Ukraine immediately because a military offensive is imminent, while also cautioning that he’s not sure Putin has made…
During a weeks-long impasse between Moscow and Washington, a key White House advisor claimed on Feb. 6 that Russia may attack Ukraine “at any point now.” “It could happen as soon as tomorrow or it could take some weeks yet,” Jake Sullivan, the Biden administration’s national security adviser, told ABC News. “With military deployments, Russian President Vladimir Putin has put himself in a position with military deployments to be able to act aggressively against Ukraine at any time now.” he stated. “We believe that there is a very distinct possibility that Vladimir Putin will order an attack on Ukraine. It could take a number of different forms. It could happen as soon as tomorrow or it could take some weeks yet, ” Sullivan said, emphasizing that the US is still trying to seek a diplomatic solution. In recent weeks, Russia…
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated the UK and its Western allies are ready to impose sanctions on Russia “the moment the first Russian toecap crosses farther into Ukrainian territory.” Johnson stated the UK and its allies “will always stand up for freedom, democracy, and Ukrainian sovereignty in the face of aggression” during a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on Feb. 1. “The minute there is a further incursion into sovereign Ukrainian territory they will apply.” he said, adding that Moscow must recognize the sanctions will be enforced “automatically.” The Russian force buildup on the Ukrainian border, Johnson added, was arguably the greatest act of enmity “towards Ukraine in our lifetimes.” Any conflict, though, would be costly for Russia. “The Ukrainian army will fight. They will put a very, very, very fierce and bloody resistance and…
The Pentagon said on Wednesday that the US will deploy around 3,000 troops to allied countries in Eastern Europe. This decision comes as tensions between Russia and Ukraine remain high. According to Pentagon press secretary John Kirby, the deployment will send around 2,000 troops to Germany and Poland, as well as a 1,000-strong mounted cavalry force from Germany to Romania. These are “not permanent moves,” according to Kirby, and the forces will “not fight in Ukraine, but rather maintain the robust defense of our NATO members.” He went on to say that the troops are prepared for a “variety of missions,” including deterrence. “The current situation demands that we reinforce the deterrent and defensive posture on NATO’s eastern flank,” Kirby said. “President Biden has been clear that the United States will respond to the growing threat to Europe’s security and…
According to one analyst, China and Russia are attempting to disrupt and change the rules of the international system by authoritarian means. They claim that the plan can only be prevented by a concerted effort by democratic states around the world. “China and Russia are authoritarian states that see themselves constrained, encircled, and threatened by the liberal democracies led by the United States,” said Aaron Friedberg, a visiting senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States. “They’re attempting, both separately and in concert, to change important aspects of the existing international order. They are revisionist powers. The challenge they pose is collective and requires a collective response.” Friedberg made the remarks during a webinar conducted by the German Marshall Fund of the United States on Jan. 19, a think tank that aims to encourage cooperation between North…
Anthony Blinken, Secretary of State Set to Meet With Russian Counterpart to Ease Tensions Involving Ukraine.
If the West refuses to meet Moscow’s demands, Putin has threatened to use unspecified “military-technical measures.” The State Department said Tuesday that Secretary of State Antony Blinken will meet with his Russian counterpart in Switzerland this week as tensions between the two countries rise over a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine. Blinken will go to Kyiv on Wednesday to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, then to Berlin before meeting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva on Friday, according to the State Department. The hurriedly planned trip intends to demonstrate US support for Ukraine and to persuade Russia of the importance of de-escalation. Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, emphasized the importance of the situation. “We’re now at a stage where Russia could at any point launch an attack in Ukraine. And what Secretary Blinken is going to go…
The Biden administration continues to regard tensions between Russia and Ukraine as “an extremely dangerous situation,” according to White House press secretary Jen Psaki. This comes after three rounds of high-level meetings last week between the US, Russia, and a number of European countries, which were intended to de-escalate the situation and find a diplomatic solution. In recent weeks, Russia has gathered over 100,000 troops along its border with Ukraine and in Russian-annexed Crimea. Russia has announced joint military exercises with Belarus, a neighboring country that shares a border with Ukraine. “We’re now at a stage where at any point Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine,” Psaki stated on Jan. 18. On Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken talked with his Russian colleague, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and the two agreed to meet later this week in Geneva, Switzerland.…
