Anti-Russian propaganda/counter-propaganda descending into madness

"US Defense Secretary James Mattis has recently claimed that Washington received a mandate to operate in Syria from no less than the UN itself. The problem is the UN never did any such thing as it does not even have any legal capacity to do so."(1)

"Russia's Ministry of Defence has posted what it called 'irrefutable proof' of the US aiding so-called Islamic State - but one of the images was actually taken from a video game. The ministry claimed the image showed an IS convoy leaving a Syrian town last week aided by US forces. Instead, it came from the smartphone game 'AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.'(2)

"BuzzFeed News published a story Tuesday about wire transfers to Russian embassies in August 2016 that were accompanied by memos saying the funds were "to finance election campaign of 2016." The transfers, the outlet noted breathlessly, are being investigated by the FBI as possible attempts to influence the US presidential election. The only problem with this latest Russiagate screed? The Russian Duma election was scheduled for the following month, which the money was obviously intended to support."(3)

Russian propagandists. American propagandists. Gentlemen. Ladies. Transvestites: You people need to stop fooling around so much with the truth because you're driving yourselves and everyone else crazy.
