Associated Press Issues Correction To Its Fake Report Which Could Have Kicked Off WW3

Illustrative Image

Originally published by ZeroHedge

Update(1605ET)The Associated Press has issued an official correction for its not-so-inconsequential bit of reporting Tuesday that could have easily set off a chain of events leading to a WWIII scenario.

“The Associated Press reported erroneously, based on information from a senior American intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity” …and we the know rest which unleashed a day of incessant warmongering based on the allegation that Russia attacked a NATO member. The incredibly embarrassing correction further states, “Subsequent reporting showed that the missiles were Russian-made and most likely fired by Ukraine in defense against a Russian attack.”

And the next time this happens will it be too late for a “correction”?

* * *

Update(1314ET)A fresh White House statement has backed the Poland and NATO assessment that the Tuesday Polish border explosion was “most likely the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that unfortunately landed in Poland.”

The statement by National Security Council Spokesperson Adrienne Watson additionally said the US has “full confidence” in the Polish government’s ongoing investigation. “We have seen nothing that contradicts President Duda’s preliminary assessment that this explosion was most likely the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that unfortunately landed in Poland,” she said.

But like NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg’s prior remarks, she still blamed Russia for the episode:

“That said, whatever the final conclusions may be, it is clear that the party ultimately responsible for this tragic incident is Russia, which launched a barrage of missiles on Ukraine specifically intended to target civilian infrastructure. Ukraine had — and has — every right to defend itself.”

Meanwhile, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul asks the question, did we almost get lied into WWIII?

All of these belated admissions that no, it was not a Russian attack, conveniently come well after the US president had seized the ‘fog of war’ moment yesterday to unveil another massive $37 billion emergency aid package for Ukraine almost simultaneous to the border incident.

So $37.6 billion more from the US taxpayer and counting… at a moment that some apparently have motive to drag Washington and the American people into another major war based on deception.

* * *

A mere less than 24 hours ago, before the dust had settled from the explosion and before investigators could come to any definitive conclusions after the deadly incident on the Polish border village of Przewodów, the Western public was already being harangued and forewarned to stay away from ‘conspiracy theories’ as the early mainstream headlines – pushed especially based on an anonymous US official in an Associated Press report – were fast out the gate with “Russian missiles hit Poland, killing two”.

“Article 5” – the NATO collective defense treaty which many had long worried would be the first invoked act leading to WWIII, began trending on Twitter, as Western officials issued confident statements of ‘solidarity’.  Almost immediately and without evidence, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky demanded “action” from the West over the supposed brazen aggression against a NATO member. “Hitting NATO territory with missiles… This is a Russian missile attack on collective security! This is a really significant escalation. Action is needed,” Zelensky said his Tuesday night video address.

And then as missile crash site images widely circulated on the internet, leading even Western sources to express doubt that the projectile was launched by Russia, enter no less than the foreign minister of Ukraine, who attempted to preempt what he slammed as a developing Russia-promoted “conspiracy theory”. Like with many other aspects to this war, some of the most obvious common sense questions were quickly declared “off limits” before they could even be asked.

Warsaw then stopped just short of any talk of Article 5, but then floated Article 4 as the basis of an emergency NATO security meeting for Wednesday, which calls for “consultations” in the event a NATO country is under threat.

But what a difference a few hours, and a skeptical refusal to blindly jump on the war! bandwagon, makes. First, as we reported overnight, President Joe Biden explicitly said that based on preliminary information, it is “unlikely” that the rocket strike in Poland originated in Russia. Oops. This as based on the available emerging evidence it seemed clear the culprit was more likely an errant Ukrainian anti-air missile. “It’s unlikely in the minds of [sic] the trajectory that it was fired from Russia. But we’ll see,” Biden had said. But this admission conveniently came well after the US president seized the ‘fog of war’ moment to unveil another massive $37 billion emergency aid package for Ukraine almost simultaneous to the border incident.

Now on Wednesday, Poland and NATO officials have also done a reversal of the initial kneejerk ‘blame Russia’ reporting which momentarily sent the world into a frenzy of anxiety over the prospect of WWIII. Polish President Andrzej Duda has said the explosion that killed two people now appears to be an “unfortunate accident” and not an “intentional attack.”

What is left to say after all of this? Here are the facts

Recall that the initial reaction out of Moscow was that either Ukraine or Poland was staging a “deliberate provocation” in so quickly hurling blame on Russia for an aggressive act. Warsaw officials had even in the hours after demanded that Russia make an apology if it was an accident.

But President Duda alongside NATO HQ is quickly reversing the entire narrative, according to more from Axios:

  • Duda added that the projectile that caused the blast was “most likely” Russian-made, but officials have “no proof at the moment that it was a missile fired by the Russian side.”
  • Ukraine has previously denied it was to blame for the blast and accused Moscow of a “serious escalation.” Russia also denied responsibility.

Of course, it’s always been the case that Ukraine’s anti-air missile arsenal is entirely “Russian-made” – particularly its S-300s.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg issued a similar assessment, saying it was most likely an errant Ukrainian missile:

“Our preliminary analysis suggests that the incident was likely caused by a Ukrainian air defence missile fired to defend Ukrainian territory against Russian cruise missile attacks,” the NATO Secretary General told reporters after an emergency meeting of the alliance’s Security Council. 

He stressed that the investigation into the explosion is still ongoing but that there is “no indication that this was the result of a deliberate attack. And we have no indication that Russia is preparing offensive military actions against NATO.”

To be expected, he quickly followed by still laying blame on Russia for the overall war and series of events which led to the deadly border explosion. “But let me be clear. This is not Ukraine’s fault. Russia bears ultimate responsibility, as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine,” the NATO chief said.

Without addressing Zelensky’s prior day shrill rush to get NATO to declare military action based on collective security, Stoltenberg stressed, “this is not Ukraine’s fault.” As NATO defense officials continue to meet to determine a way forward, and as the whole drama has clearly fizzled out (again, only after it emerged it was Ukraine’s rocket), likely the alliance will quietly move on in a “nothing to see here” manner.

But what about the next time a similar border tragedy or incident on NATO-land plays out? Will the same “Russia is attacking NATO!” narrative prevail before anyone is allowed to ask simple questions? Will the war drums beat before there’s so much as a forensic investigation? Will there be a mushroom cloud before pesky rational skepticism disrupts the “consensus”? As the past ten years of war in Syria and Western intervention there have demonstrated, this is the likely inevitable scenario of how NATO and Russia will stumble into direct conflict at this rate.

In the meantime, as for the below still lingering question, we won’t hold our breath…

Russia is a weak, poor and hopeless nation. A conventional war between Russian and NATO would only last a couple weeks until Western Forces liberate Moscow. Nobody is fearing russian nuclear weapons, most of them don’t even function.

The US and nato are waiting for one of their false flag to stick, sort of. Much like every other war started by these warmongers. They have usurped western democracy and now do as they please.

These western warmongers are killing economies, killing future prospects, killing human rights, and killing their own countrymen with contaminated snake oil and poverty.

Someone is going to do something stupid, then escalate in order to prevent Russia from retaliating against that stupidity. That will force Russia to retaliate fully and do what is but a last resort measure. To launch a full force unlimited nuclear strike. You can bet there are hardliners in London and Washington defending escalating the hostilities, calling Russia’s “bluff”, thinking that Russia will just suffer losses at the hand of NATO willingly and meekly without retaliating.

Romanian whore

And supposing even Russia would have fired missiles into Polaks, by mistake, so what ? Do you think JNATO whores would been ready to take a radiation nuke on theirs head for a stupid drugster clown in Kiev ? Never. Be realistic and not like some nazi retard trolls here. The fajoos will never accept a barren world, void of slaves. Theirs globalist agenda would be impossible. So, game over with this shit, you fascists imbeciles.

So Russia thinks they are just fighting NATO? No, there are others involved, yet they are never mentioned as participants. Who owns and controls US media? Who infiltrates every aspect of US intel services? Who runs US foreign/military policy? Who constantly attacks Russian allies? Who also supports Ukr with intel? Where did all the Ukr oligarchs flee to?

@Sage & zman

Yes, I agree with what you say. Btw Associated Press is owned by Rothschild same as Reuters agency. It’s jews controlling both sides of the conflict. But thank God, more and more people in the West as well as in the East now start to realize this truth.

And if you go deeper into details you will see lots of things which let you identify a possible jew from an none-jew. The Germans have done overwhelming studies on that topic. How to identify jews is something the Germans perfected, what is why the Jews want the whole german nation and people exterminated as quick as possible, because they fear the german knowledge could spread to the rest of the world very quickly once the people of the other nations realize what the germans had found out.

Of course the allied forces upon occupying Germany forbid all that precious studies and books written by the Germans (including children’s books, in which they had written in simple words the truth, so that every child already from very early age, was informed properly on what the jews are). See for example these old german books.

1) http://rlu.ru/39Fsp

2) http://rlu.ru/39Fsu + http://rlu.ru/39Fsy

Moreover it is basically not that hard to figure out if you put several markers, overlaying each others on top and if they match 2, 3 times you may (being careful) still doubt a hit, but if there are 5 or 6 matches, then you can be fucking sure to have a jew in front of you. For example the sixer (6ser) typical jewish hook-nose. The crooked hanging eyes, the fleshy lips. The ugly mentality. The names, which they always switch, so that nobody should know that they are criminals. Netherland jew: Rosvelt aka Roosevelt (US president in WW2), in german Rosenfeld, in engl. Rosefield.

They alwas take names from eighter money-related or other expensive glamerous things like gold, silver, diamond, pearl, wexler (in german: wechsler engl. moneychanger), kaufman, blinken, albright, glanz, copperfield, zuckerberg, silverlake/silberbach, etc.

Then they take profane names like: big, small/klein and things that point into this nowhere direction like berg, stein, field, (zuckerberg) as well as all colours ((white, green, red, brown, grey, black etc. see Mr. Trotzky real name Leo Bronstein resp. Brownstein, Lenin the grandson of Moses Blank, Lloyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman Sachs investment bank, Adam Weis(s)haupt (founder of the Illuminati), jewish bankers family Rothschild, George Soros real name György Schwartz resp. Black, the large investment company Blackstone, Alice Schwarzer – the most famous “german” feminist leader, Alan Greenspan US-FED etc.), to hide their true forefathers.))

And more often positive sounding names which mean the opposite of the true character the person has, so that nobody assumes an evil person behind that name. Example: Mr. Goodman /Gutmann, Soulsman/Seeligmann, Love/liebe, Loveman/Liebman, Herzl, Heart/Herz, Lovelykid/Liebeskind, Peaceman/Friedman, Beautiful, Edelmann, Feinmann, Augstein, Beautymount/Schönberg, Friend/Freund, Friendly/Freundlich, Happy/Freud, Alwaysgood/Immergut, Decent, Honourable, Honourableman/Ehrlichman etc.

And they take profane names from nature and certain animals, valley/thal, lake, wiese, morning, baum, flower, blume, blüm, rose, corn, summer, Bloomberg, Goldblum, sonnenberger, katzenberger, Lauterbach, winter, stern, hirsch, hirschel, cat/katz/katze, spring, snow, water, waterman, span/spahn (J. Spahn former German health minister), Morgenthau (former US foreign minister in WW2), farmer/bauer, springfield/frühlingsfeld, Wolf, Wolfowitz, Bernsteen/Bernstein,

And also names that have a doube-R inside tend very often to hide jewish persons behind them. Schorr, Mitterrand, Harris, Harriman, Carr, Kerry, Torres, Karrenbauer, Forrester, Barr, Barrington, Merril Lynch, Morrison (Australia prime minister), Borrel (Josep Borrel Vice-president of the EU-commission) etc. etc. Here you see from the double-R that its jews hiding behind these names.

Sometimes you can even see it from their gestics and mimics, as some of them tend to move do things in a somewhat unnatural way, more like insects than like humans. For example watch Mrs. Barbara Learner-Spectre talk and her gestics and mimics. It’s scary.

And these above mentions example-names and a hundred more a-like they use and switch and put them together in new variations again and again, this is one trick they use to sneak into societies as worms an parasites – everywhere. In Turkey for example they of course use the turkish words black = kara. So if you meet Mr. Kara in Turkey, if you not know kara means black in english you might not know immidiately that you are facing a jew. (maybe you might recognize it by his all-over appearance, hook-nose, crooked eyes or some of the other marks jews have – but that only if you know about them).

West-supremacist idiots should realise that WW3 is no way out for them. In the event it happens, they are destroyed fully and the last of them are hunted and tortured because the world actually has no sympathy for them and all their regimes and militaries would be dead so nothing would protect them. The West must swallow the bitter pill of its decline and die, and has no other exit.

Note the narrative control everywhere on MSM. First, the missile was Russian. When it was obvious that the missile was Ukrainian, then the missile was indeed Ukrainian… albeit Russian-made. When it became obvious the missile was fired in the opposite direction to Polanda as a provocation. Then Russia was to blame, for were it not for its SMO, Ukraine wouldn’t have had the need to fire the missile, which is what the AP is still saying. Note the wording: “Subsequent reporting showed that the missiles were Russian-made and most likely fired by Ukraine in defense against a Russian attack.”. And the attribution of responsibility to Russia. This proves once and for all, inequivocally, that no matter what Russia does or doesn’t do, it’s all the responsibility of Russia. And if it isn’t, then it still is. WW3 is inevitable.

Why do you question things? If I the great leader of Ukraine ZIolensky tell the world that Russia fired a missile at a tractor in the middle of nowhere killing two 89 year old dyslexic Polish farmers and NATO must immediately invoke article 5 to start a nuclear war for the benefit of the Jews i mean for the sake of humanity then you do not question my sources. NATO can still invoke article 5, it is not too late for millions of Christians to kill each other I mean it is not too late for NATO to save humanity by launching a suicide attack on Russia that will see all of Europe in ashes. People are so distrusting of me I don’t know why. When Victoria Nuland said “fuck the EU” she didn’t mean it in a bad way. Jees you Christians are so sensitive.

Come on NAZI NATO you said there WILL BE A STRIKE EVEN IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, SO WHY ARE YOU NOT STRIKING AGAINST NAZI UKRAINE???????

RESULT: NAZI NATO ALL BLUFF and have BLINKED FIRST nothing but a bunch of COWARDS and LIARS.

NAZI NATO you better think yourselves lucky you didn’t force Russia to STRIKE BACK, you thought Cuban missile crisis was close this was so much CLOSER TO WW3 and to the end of civilization all over a lying NAZI JEW CLOWN ZELENSKY and the NAZI WEST.
