Skip to comments.Most Russians think of CIA as world’s major terrorist organization
Posted on 10/18/2007 9:23:07 AM PDT by tcrlaf
A recent opinion poll conducted by Yury Levadas Research Center showed that 30 percent of Russians believe that the USAs Central Intelligence Agency is a terrorist organization.
Almost one-third of the polled Russian people therefore agreed with Iranian officials who ascribed USAs CIA and Armed Forces to terrorist organizations.
Nevertheless, 32 percent of Russian citizens are certain that the CIA has nothing in common with terrorism. In the meantime, up to 70 percent of Russians condemn the intention of the US administration to conduct pinpoint strikes on the camps of the Revolutionary Guard Corps and nuclear objects of Iran. Only eight percent of the polled approved the actions of the US administration against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The power of Democrat/Liberal/Hollywood propoganda has an effect.
They DO quote the Soros/Socialist "CommonDreams.Org" in the accompanying picture.
News and opinion website intended to be "a progressive political organizing tool" Reflects spectrum of views from liberal to Marxist-socialist
And to Russians, the FSB (KGB replacement) is the equivalent of meals on wheels?
I once read an article decades ago during a pre olympic race where they said the USSR guy came in second and the American came in next to last.
True enough but there were only two guys in the race.
How is 30% “most” when 32% of respondents said that the CIA had nothing
to do w/ terrorism?
OTOH, who gives a $%^& what the Russian publik thinks anyway?
This appears to be PRAVDA regurgitating an article from the San Fran-based Socialist bunch “CommonDreams”...
To me, it was an example of how leftist propoganda in America becomes the “Accepted” fact around the world.
Then I read the article and went “WTF???”
And this is shocking?...only 30%? In THIS country 100% of the democraps believe it!.....
Interesting...this opinion coming from a country with a HUGE population of people who had been part of a huse government apparatus that willingly carted off tens of millions of their fellow countrymen to imprisonment or death.
The Dems have done every thing they can to foster this idea.
This is a direct result of George ‘To scared to come out of the closet’ Clooney, and Matt Damon’s ‘Bourne’ bs.
Yaaa, and the avg Rusky is so excited by that prospect that the population
is declining by 0.8%/yr! A winning stratgey for re-emergence on the
Nukes in the hands of Islamists could very well turn out to be a nightmare for Russia. ...especially if a couple find their way into the hands of Chechens. The Russians are so focused on opposing the U.S. at every turn and regaining superpower status they're blinded by the real threat.
OK, let’s assume that among Ruskies:
CIA = terror group
What would acct for this belief?
1) US facilitation of Soviet defeat in Afghanistan
2) Current covert ops in effect throughout former southern USSR repubs
3) Bad borst and tainted barley gruel
4) US heavy armor units in FRG re-basing to Poland
5) Another poor wheat harvest
6) Scorched earth mentality
But the CIA would not be able to be what Pravda is stating; since the CIA is a government agency, it would at most be a commando force or propagandist, inciters of unrest.
Wow, that's the same thing that Elvis told me just the other day!!!
There is a connection between the two groups. The false flag recruiting of radical orgs and “enterprises” in the West has never stopped. It kept right on going even after the wall came down.
The lack of any punishment is a grave danger. It was a serious mistake to take the forgiveness approach. Western leaders feared that if we took any other approach, Russia would fall back into past ways. Well, they are doing that no matter what we have done or what we are doing. Yes, we “won” the Cold War without a single shot being fired. But, there was never a deSovietization nor gallows and snapping necks. And now? We see the results.
