Once again,  American people
have fallen for fabrications

No. Despite the many fabrications by the United States government, the U.S. population continues to fall for them: Let’s remember the “incident” in the Gulf of Tonkin that started the escalation in the bombing of North Vietnam; the “rescue” of the U.S. students in Grenada, who were never in any danger; the “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq; among many other fabrications.

A couple of years ago, the United Nations supervised the disarming of Syria’s chemical weapons, declaring that Syria no longer has them, but the U.S. government’s fabrication was preceded by a rabid attack of Russophobia, which set the stage for this fabrication.
