Disinfo: The US and the EU are employing terrorism to undermine the Middle East

Summary

The US and the EU are using terrorism as a tool in order to undermine the stability in the Middle East and to destroy as many of its residents as they can, with the aim of minimising the number of refugees coming to Europe from this region.

Disproof

Recurrent allegations of complicity in terrorism. This message is a wide-spread conspiracy theory that the United States established many terrorist organizations and that it has full control over global terrorism.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming  George Soros aims to destabilise countries and topple regimes in post-communist  Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. See here for similar cases.
