The number one rule of waging infowars is to never admit doing so since that immediately prompts questions about the credibility of one’s own side. It’s therefore inexplicable why US spies would do this since their admission draws attention to the “deep state’s” direct meddling in both their own self-declared “democracy” as well as international affairs. That, however, might have been the unstated purpose of NBC News’ report.
The US-led West’s liberal-globalist ideology claims to be the freest and most democratic one in history yet that declining unipolar hegemon’s own spies just discredited its very basis by admitting to waging an information warfare campaign against Russia, including through the use of flimsy and likely outright false so-called “intelligence”. This isn’t so-called “Russian propaganda” like those who support Kiev might instinctively claim but was openly acknowledged by none other than prominent Mainstream Media (MSM) outlet NBC News in their article about how “In a break with the past, U.S. is using intel to fight an info war with Russia, even when the intel isn’t rock solid”.
All conflicts in history have been accompanied by their own forms of information warfare so there’s nothing unique in the fact that the US-led West is waging this against Russia apart from it hitherto being “politically incorrect” to publicly discuss. This Hybrid War dimension was deliberately suppressed for the purpose of misleading their targeted Western audience into believing by innuendo that their civilizational bloc doesn’t wage infowars against anyone simply because the truth is supposedly so strongly on their side that they don’t have to. By default, it’s also implied that everything that Russia and those sympathetic to it (even only to some of its positions) say is nothing but so-called “propaganda”.
Just like George Orwell unforgettably wrote in his famous 1984 that “The past was alterable. The past never had been altered. Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia”, so too is now the case that “the US-led West wages infowars against Russia. The US-led West has always been waging infowars against Russia” even though it was previously forbidden to say so. The emerging standard is now that it’s “politically incorrect” to claim that such infowars were never being waged after NBC News just acknowledged it on behalf of the US’ permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies (“deep state”) that it de facto serves.
The number one rule of waging infowars is to never admit doing so since that immediately prompts questions about the credibility of one’s own side. It’s therefore inexplicable why US spies would do this since their admission draws attention to the “deep state’s” direct meddling in both their own self-declared “democracy” as well as international affairs. That, however, might have been the unstated purpose of NBC News’ report. To explain, the objective could have been to precondition their targeted Western audience into “respecting” these infowar operations, which could then serve to generate passive support at the very least for more open “deep state” meddling.
It’s already the world’s worst-kept secret that the anti-Russian faction of the “deep state” played a leading role in the regime change sequence against former US President Donald Trump so the next step in imposing the dystopian hellhole that’s supposed to be superficially ruled for the time being by incumbent President Joe Biden is to more openly publicize the US’ descent into the liberal-fascist dictatorship that Russian foreign spy chief Sergey Naryshkin just warned about. This is advanced by admitting the “deep state’s” meddling in domestic and international affairs like NBC News just did in their latest report, which can in hindsight be seen as a pivotal point in US history.
It’s remarkable that Americans could care less about this revelation, which speaks to the fact that the majority of them have already been successfully preconditioned to expect it. That observation suggests that Naryshkin’s liberal-fascist scenario is proceeding even faster than he himself thought. The emerging reality is that the “deep state” is increasingly becoming the “public state” as it confidently steps out of the shadows to more openly rule the US, which its members might have wagered is the most effective way to manage its declining unipolar hegemony across the ongoing global systemic transition. The result, however, is that its self-proclaimed “democracy” has become totally superficial.
