Disinfo: The appearance of a Boris Nemtsov plaza in Washington is interference in Russia’s internal affairs

Summary

The appearance of a Boris Nemtsov plaza in Washington is a rough, brutal, immoral, interference in Russia’s internal affairs.

Disproof

The names that the Council of the District of Colombia, the legislative branch of the local government of the U.S. capital, chooses for it streets are the council’s constitutional right and the city’s own business. In no way does it violate diplomatic protocols or constitute interference in any foreign country’s internal affairs.Further debunking at Polygraph www.polygraph.info/a/russian-embassy-washington-nemtsov-plaza/28967584.html, .

US plans to invade Iran

A joint analysis of Brookings Institute and the Saban Center for Middle East Policy entitled “Which Path to Persia” gives us a strong sense of what is driving Washington and the Deep State’s agenda in the former Persian Empire. It suggests that the only way to eliminate all of the problems that Washington has with the current Iranian regime is to use the military invasion option.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. The analysis in question - which is available online and dates back to year 2009 - in fact says: "if one of the diplomatic or regime change options cannot be made to work soon, then Washington will have no choice but to adopt either Containment or one of the military options." It does not state that military intervention is the only feasible option. In fact, it lists pros and cons to all the possible approaches to Washington's Iran policy.

US plot to overrun Iran

A joint analysis of Brookings Institute and the Saban Center for Middle East Policy entitled “Which Path to Persia” selects the military option as the only viable course of action against Iran. The Trump-administration obviously follows this advice.

Disproof

Hungarian translation of an article by Russia-Insider. The organisations' analysis - which is available online and dates back to year 2009 - in fact says: "if one of the diplomatic or regime change options cannot be made to work soon, then Washington will have no choice but to adopt either Containment or one of the military options." It does not state that military intervention is the only feasible option. In fact, it lists pros and cons to all the possible approaches to Washington's Iran policy.

 

US allegedly helped terrorists destroy Russian planes

During the drone attacks against Russia’s Syrian bases (6 January) a P-8 Boeing Poseidon aircraft of the USAF supported the terrorists’ action.

Islamists have received help from a “technologically advanced” country, the Russian defense ministry says.

Disproof

According to the US, no P-8 aircraft was in the area at the time, and - in fact - not a single one has flown over the area for a long period of time. edition.cnn.com/2018/01/09/politics/russia-us-attack-base-syria/index.html,
