Propaganda alert: Who named the Russian missile Satan?

Answer is easy, it’s not anybody in Russia…  More Like The Terror Cartel In The Arlington-Langley-K Street Axis of Evil.But of course the Usual Suspects tell a different story, one they made up in their tiny little available brain cells. Mind, Russia never nuked anybody. The Grand Club of Nations who have nuked is exactly one. Ours. Allegedly ours. We’re supposed to call it “ours” although nobody I’ve ever met has actually shown ownership. Anyway, this is a straight across copy from Space4Peace Bruce Gagnon. Enjoy.

Just to illustrate how the brainwashing works in the west – let’s take a look at the so-called ‘Satan 2’  Russian missile.

In an article from the UK web site called Metro, they report:

Russia is to test its newest and largest ever nuclear missile – capable of wiping out an area twice the size of Britain.

The weapon, called the Satan 2, is more than 3,000 times more powerful than the bomb that wiped out Hiroshima and is said to be virtually undetectable.

I’ve repeatedly seen mainstream media throughout the west call this missile Satan 2.  At first I assumed this is what Russia had named it – but I was skeptical and wanted to get to the bottom of this.  Obviously it is in the US-NATO’s interest to have the public think ‘those nasty Russians worship Satan and just want to kill us all so we’d better hit them first’.

The other day I was watching Putin’s NBC interview and he addressed this.  He told Megyn Kelly that the Russians did not name the missile Satan 2, but ‘your country did’.  The Russians named the missile RS-28 Sarmat.  (Sarmat is short for The Sarmatians who were a large Iranian confederation that existed in classical antiquity, flourishing from about the 5th century BC to the 4th century AD.)

A Florida media site got right to the fake news point suggesting that Putin had named the missile Satan:

According to Putin, the new intercontinental missile can fly at 20 times the speed of sound to anywhere in the world and can not be intercepted by “any antimissile system on Earth.”

He’s dubbed the new weapon “Satan 2” and said it gives Russia the advantage in case of a nuclear attack, allowing it to be the aggressor.

An NBC story about the Putin-Kelly interview acknowledges where the Satan name come from – but you have to get to the last paragraph of the long article to see it:

The missile is intended to replace the R-36 Voevoda, which NATO has dubbed “Satan,” leading the United States to call the new version “Satan 2.” Russian media said in 2016 that the RS-28 Sarmat would be able to carry a payload capable of wiping out a landmass “the size of Texas or France.”

So this is how the demonization game goes.  Very deceptive.  And we are only able to figure out this kind of bullshit if we read/watch a wide variety of international media sources – including Russian.  If we are just reading American media then we are likely filling our heads with all kinds of corporate propaganda.

I heard years ago that you should always start every article with the first and the last paragraphs before reading the rest of the article.  Makes sense.

Bruce
