Disinfo: Swedish militarism has deep roots

Summary

Sweden has joined the number of countries that dream about fighting against Russia. The Defence Ministry of that country has published a series of videos under the headline “When the War Comes”, where a conflict with Moscow is barely hidden. It appears that the Swedish militarism has deep roots./…/

The real power in Sweden belongs to the military industrial complex, to pro-Nato organisations, military pundists, industrial technocrats and their media. This is the Swedish “Deep State”.

Under the smiling mask of neutrality, the usual militarists hide their fangs. This explains the aggressive videos, prophesying war.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation on Western military, encircling Russia. Similar cases here and here.

The Swedish Defence Forces - not the Ministry of Defence as claimed in the text - has produced a series of short films. The films outline possible scenarios and situations when Sweden could get involved in a conflict and how modern day warfare might look like.

Sweden is not, as claimed in the article, neutral, but military non-aligned. More on Sweden's foreign and security policy here.

COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon

COVID-19 is a dangerous, and in many cases, deadly virus artificially designed to be used against humanity – a biological weapon that has already claimed nearly 2 million lives worldwide and, according to an analysis by the WSJ, puts the actual death toll at more than 2.8 million.

It is very important to note that COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon, its main goals are to reduce the number of human beings, to destroy the economies of countries, to bring them to their knees, to put states and populations in such a state that they see no way out of the situation other than mass vaccination.

Disproof

Disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, biological weapons and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a "Deep state" or a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world.

This is part of a disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.

The assault on the Capitol is the new 9/11

The 9/11 incidents led to the beginning of the restriction of basic freedoms in the US, for which Baby Bush had the support of the Pentagon and the Deep State (the CIA, FBI, etc.). And nine years ago, Leon Panetta, US Secretary of Defense with Obama, warned that the US lived a “pre-Pearl Harbour 9/11 cybernetic moments, when four actors -Russia, China, Iran and unspecified terrorist identities- are preparing to attack critical infrastructures in the US”. The United States has been looking for its cyber-Pearl Harbour since then. Now, with the pretext of the coarse assault of the Capitol, the complex Pentagon-Deep State-Wall Street-Silicon Valley is humiliating Trump, when the ‘cybercracy’ censors his accounts in social media. Now, with the 1/6 incidents, there is a triple goal: to impose a new domestic order with a single, globalist-oriented party, and to exorcise Trumpism; the irredentism of the global ‘cybercracy’ to subdue the digital sovereignty of those countries who lack antibodies; and the expansion of the US cyberwar against China and Russia. This is a global ‘cybernetic coup’.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory not based on any evidence, merging several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the 9/11 attacks as a domestic conspiracy, and about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called ‘Deep State’ in the United States who rule above elected officials. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions and, in this case, to favour Donald Trump by framing him as the victim of a conspiracy.

There is massive evidence that Donald Trump’s supporters organised, coordinated and launched the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, without any intervention of an alleged ‘Deep State complex’ as a way to discredit Trumpism or to advance a set of secret plans. The article also deliberately distorts the meaning of Leon Panetta’s speech. In an intervention at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York, then-Secretary of Defense Panetta was warning about the cyber-vulnerabilities of his country against foreign or malignant actors, not setting the bases for an alleged action that would serve as a pretext to put in practice a dark agenda.

Ukrainian marines rebel against unknown vaccine testing

Ukrainian marines in Donbas rebelled against the order to undergo mandatory vaccination against coronavirus with an unknown vaccine.

Testing of unknown foreign vaccines began in the Ukrainian military in the Autumn of last year.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the coronavirus pandemic and the US/ West which allegedly controls different processes in Ukraine.

No evidence is given. As for now, Ukraine hasn't received any coronavirus vaccines.
