I watch it some times and I find it almost devoid of attacks on the west or the US President. Remarkably short of videos claiming damage by 'coalition forces' but a lot of on the ground coverage from correspondents in the field. RT also has some good discussion programs that are international with participants in various western countries as well as Moscow and Washington, often quite interesting and from both sides of the fence, not scripted.

I find very similar with Sputnik ..... it does not play the blame game making accusations against the US, But read any of the US sheets and it is a continuous stream of anti-Russian and anti-Putin rhetoric a demonization of Putin ..... most of it totally unsupported and almost always misrepresentative of actual events. :roll:


yes its has been noted that the leavers are anti-west and pro russia - maybe you can make a joke about stalin

RT is probably the best news outlet.

BBC is garbage, CNN, fox, garbage. They usually systematically emphasize one point of view and that view is usually whatever they want you to believe. Al Jazeera is better than them.

Strange then that Russia allows western propaganda on their TV ...... to amuse the Russians! With the approval rating Putin has, I don't think the Russians are as easily lied to as the Western World. Like you. those that support the US/NATO/Israeli alliance propaganda believe everything they are told ........... and fester hatred for Putin and Russia.

The man is giving you sound advice ..... the West should listen to that advice .... they are playing a very dangerous and stupid game. You will learn, maybe too late, that what Putin says makes sense. Only this morning the new UK Prime Minister confirms Britain is sending more troops to Eastern Europe apparently to '.......counter Russian aggression' and to deter a Russian invasion. Are you people for real?

Yes ........ I caught the end of the news and assumed (wrongly) that it came from one of the contenders. I humbly apologise for my error. :oops: :wink:

No need to apologise Robin.
I have always supported the Western world but I have not done so over the years with blindfolds.
Just as I believe that West has made a dreadful error of judgement in getting involved in Syria and more so in demanding the removal of Bashar al Assad I also believe that the West is now making another grave error in deploying more troops on Russians borders. This latest deployment will be seen by Russia as an unacceptable provocation that could lead to some sort of a conflict with serious repercussions.

The antipathy shown towards Russia by the West is not conducive to world peace but quite the opposite. I do hope that our leaders in the West do not embark on an act or acts that could take us to WW3.

Well, we may disagree on economics but your observations on this I absolutely and unequivocally support.

It amazes me that when a power that has over 800 military bases, in 150 different countries, has been involved in more than 50 wars/regime changes/coups etc. since the end of WWII ..... says Russia is a threat ....... people believe them without asking ........... WHY? :x

Unless the West take Putin's advice seriously, and I would add that of many European diplomats and politicians as well, then WWIII is almost inevitable ....... and it won't last 24 hours!!!!!! Frightening scenario .... init? :cry:
