NATO has put the finishing touches on an information warfare office in Riga, the capital of Latvia. The office is staffed with propaganda technicians formerly deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan.
In July Latvia, Estonia, Germany, Italy Lithuania, Poland, and the UK signed a memorandum agreeing upon the establishment of a StratCom Centre of Excellence in Riga.CIA front Voice of America interviews NATO boss on alleged Russian threat in Eastern Europe.
The latest effort will compliment a social media propaganda war against Russia run out of the State Department.
Last week Infowars.com reported on remarks by the Supreme Commander of NATO, Gen. Philip Breedlove, who said the West must engage in an information war with Russia in order to counteract its “false narratives” on social media.
“We need as a western group of nations or as an alliance to engage in this informational warfare. The way to attack the false narrative is to drag the false narrative into the light and expose it,” Breedlove said.
Prior to the rollout of NATO’s social warfare and propaganda effort, Latvian Defense Minister Raimonds Vejonis accused the Russians on March 18 of engaging in “misinformation, bribery, economic pressure,” which are designed to “undermine the nation.”
“The first stage of confrontation is taking place — I mean informational war, propaganda and cyber attacks. So we are already under attack,” added Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
The Chatham House think-tank believes Russia is involved in hybrid warfare “designed to cripple a state before that state even realizes the conflict has begun.
“It’s a model of warfare designed to slip under NATO’s threshold of perception and reaction.”
The Chatham House is a British think tank operating like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institute in the United States. Corporate members include Goldman Sachs International, Morgan Stanley, Lockheed Martin, Bloomberg, GlaxoSmithKline, Coca-Cola, and other transnational giants and bankster operations. This elite membership, writes Tony Cartalucci, “is involved in coordinated planning, perception management, and the execution of its corporate membership’s collective agenda.”
US-NATO-Russian Confrontation Worst International Crisis since Cuban Missile Crisis
Professor Stephen Cohen, a scholar of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University, believes a premeditated war with Russia is on the horizon and the situation is worse than during the Cold War.
Cohen says a “winner-takes-all” policy adopted during the Clinton administration after the fall of the Soviet Union has dominated U.S. foreign policy.
