Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray blew the whistle on how the Americans were using Uzbekistan's medieval torture program to produce false intelligence in the war on terror
Washington went after Saddam, Qaddafi, and now Assad saying they are wicked, but Uzbekistan is one of the worst places on earth and yet we ignore its rulers crimes, in fact, they carry out some the worst crimes ever imaginable for us: brutal medieval torture. When Craig Murray reported the crimes being committed in Uzbekistan the British government, then New Labour, they told him to shut up. When he refused they removed him from office and then tried to discredit him by saying he was a drunkard who used prostitutes.
Craig says how he has lost his faith in humanity when he realized how evil our own side was. We spend our lives thinking we are the good guys, says Craig Murray, but when you realize that your side is truly evil it is shocking and destroys up your world view.
This is where I'm at and I realize that WW3 is not impossible because the 'good guys' start the wars. It is scary when you realize this and that your side can commit terrible evils, and even start a World War. Then the authoritarians will get behind the government because they are stupid and believe that the said enemy is evil. Then when the war starts and everyone gets behind the government, including left-wing media, to protect our boys at war on the front line, and to stop the enemy from defeating our own side. The ruling elite can start any war they like this way where social pressure ensures most people fall behind the government (because they will be considered traitors otherwise) and the vigilantes will soon go after those that don't.
I see Putin as entirely innocent, but my liberal friends see him as an oligarch gangster who kills his enemies. But where's the evidence, and even Trump asks that? In some parts of the alternative media, mainly on the right, they talk about the Clinton body Count, and it does look disturbing, but no mention of this in the MSM. Yes, its conspiracy theory stuff, but people believe Putin kills his enemies which the MSM plugs without any evidence and that is considered fine.
