Disinfo: Pesco is a set-up enabling the US to supervise yet another major infrastructure project in Europe

Summary

Pesco (Permanent Structured Cooperation on security and defence) does not indicate Europe’s independence. It is a set-up enabling the US to supervise yet another major infrastructure project in Europe.

Disproof

The US is not an EU member state. PESCO is a Treaty-based framework and process to deepen defence cooperation amongst EU Member States who are capable and willing to do so. The aim is to jointly develop defence capabilities and make them available for EU military operations. Enhanced defence capabilities of EU Member States will also benefit NATO. They will strengthen the European pillar within the Alliance and respond to repeated demands for stronger transatlantic burden sharing. eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage_en/34226/Permanent%20Structured%20Cooperation%20(PESCO)%20-%20Factsheethttp://www.consilium.europa.eu/media/31511/171113-pesco-notification.pdf,

Georgian kindergartens receive directives from UNICEF

The Georgian Education Minister Jejelava started bringing up male and female homosexuals in kindergartens. This is done under the mask of ”civilized”, ”tolerant”, ”Western experience” and the directives are received by UNICEF.

Disproof

No evidence given. UNICEF cannot decide over Georgia's school programme. Read more about what UNICEF workes with in Georgia.

The US adored the Nazi regime in Germany until 1939

Before 1939, the world community adored Hitler. America adored Hitler before the year of thirty-nine.

Disproof

No evidence given. Unlike the Soviet Russia, which in 1939 concluded with Nazi Germany the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, according to which Stalin and Hitler divided spheres of influence in Europe and attacked Poland, thereby starting WWII, the US did not enter into similar agreements with the Nazis.
