Do you know the company that was contracted during #Demonetisation to print our new currency notes #DeLaRue was blacklisted and banned for its involvement with Pakistan in spreading fake currency in India & is being sued in courts after we reported it? greatgameindia.com/secret-world-i…
What we were not told about #Demonetisation was that while Indian govt was cracking a whip on the informal economy the actual black money was already being routed back into India legally via India’s Biggest Scam – #RoundTripping #BlackMoney As #FDI?

Was the Head of State of British Government & of erstwhile British East India Company present in India to ensure that #Demonetisation scam money was properly transferred to them? Did #Demonetisation finance #Brexit? gginews.in/durga-mata-the…

Denmark is only a little country. Only 47,000 or so km² and at the height of the #ColdWar in the '80s, the population was just under 5m.

But it's strategic importance for both NATO and the Warsaw Pact nations, cannot be overstated.
Geographically, Denmark sits like a bung at the western end of the Baltic Sea, essentially blocking access to the North Sea, at least from the point of view of the forces on the eastern side of the #IronCurtain.
So, when the Warsaw Pact drew their contingency plans to attack Western Europe in the 1950's, these plans in essence called for the obliteration of the Kingdom of Denmark, making Denmark unihabitable for NATO forces and allowing naval access to the North Sea.

His real name was #GeorgeKenan the US ambassador to erstwhile Soviet Union in 1940s

The article was an excerpt of his LONG TELEGRAM
3. The #LongTelegram as it's known was shot back in The US gave 2 things:

👉 Geopolitical reality post WWII
👉he proposed that the US should adopt the strategy of “containment”—not conventional warfare

His other advises in his #LongTelegram r directly relevant in Indian context

Everyone's heard of #FakeNews. Before it was called fake news, it was called #disinformation. The goal is to cause confusion and chaos, so people don't know who to trust or what to believe. THREAD 1 #RussianCollaborators #Propaganda #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation
Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2 washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
Joseph #Stalin is credited with inventing the term "dezinformatsiya", defined in the Great Soviet Encyclopedia as "dissemination (in the press, on the radio, etc.) of false reports intended to mislead public opinion". 3 #ColdWar #Propaganda #Lies #misinformation

🗝(1) “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
For over a year we’ve been bombarded with rhetoric about #Russia #NorthKorea and #Iran yet no one seems to remember Clinton/Gore but we should, it’s important.
(2) #ClintonGore ran in 92’ consciously ignoring foreign policy and there’s no doubt America had war fatigue. Gore’s slogan was “it’s the economy stupid” and when they won despite the #ColdWar having just ended both of them barely even mentioned #Russia
(3) #ClintonGore inherited a political dream of sorts. For the first time #Russia was eager and willing to work with America they were cooperating across the spectrum and agreements with Bush Sr. were in place to reduce nuclear arsenals by 66% Democracy was at its most popular.

Love these but also hate the decontextualised way these are presented. #DoBetter journalists buzzfeed.com/gabrielsanchez… via @guynamedgabe
It wasn't just the Soviet invasion. It was US meddling AND then support for the most regressive groups possible. And well before 1979
Those pics of women in skirts at Kabul University make me really angry, especially as it was US+ the 'West' that helped destroy that society
