FYI: my interview with Roger Waters here:
Moscow has requested that Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters be allowed to speak at the next UNSC meeting on Ukraine
British rock icon Roger Waters has officially been asked by Russia to participate in the upcoming United Nations Security Council meeting, set to be held on Wednesday, to discuss peace prospects and weapons deliveries to Ukraine.
The invitation was announced by Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky on Tuesday. He wrote on his Telegram channel that Russia had officially requested that the UN allow the Pink Floyd co-founder and peace activist to be featured as a speaker.
Waters has been an outspoken critic of the ongoing military conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which he has called an “unnecessary war,” and has repeatedly called for efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the issue. He has also condemned the West’s continued military support to Kiev, accusing the US and its allies of “war profiteering” and intentionally provoking and prolonging hostilities in the region.
He has also stated on several occasions that he holds Washington responsible for sparking the Ukraine crisis and allowing the conflict between Moscow and Kiev because it benefits American interests and is “really good for business.”
The musician’s repeated calls for peace between Moscow and Kiev and criticism of Western military meddling have seen him branded as a Russia apologist and propagator of “Kremlin talking points.” His opinions have led to his concerts being banned in Poland and he has even landed in the notorious ‘Mirotvorets’ database – often dubbed Kiev’s “kill list” – after several individuals, including journalists and politicians, were assassinated after appearing on the website.
In September, Waters wrote an open letter personally addressed to Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling for diplomatic talks to end the conflict. He also wrote to Vladimir Zelensky’s wife Elena, asking her to help him “to persuade our leaders to stop the slaughter.”
“US behind Nord Stream sabotage – legendary NYT journalist Washington “took out” the Russian gas pipelines, Seymour Hersh has claimed US behind Nord Stream sabotage” – legendary NYT journalist Seymour Hersh So far no comment from the Media in the west.
Link to Seymour Hersh substack:
I’m sorry. I’m not buying the article. A Norwegian P8 on routine fligth in the baltic ?
It seems to be a whitewash of the UK, Sweden and Denmark. As well as Poland.
That the culprit is the US, most people have realised sometime ago.
I jhave some major problems with this article.
Hersh’s “backstory” totally reinforces the narrative coming out of Foggy Bottom in DC.
Regarding Gazprom and Europe, Hersh just doesn’t sound very sophisticated in his understanding of the economic and political situation and history. He doesn’t seem to understand pipeline economics, finances, and politics.
Of course, his story hangs Scholz out to dry—makes him into some kind of traitor figure, even.
Whiel significantly undermining the “Russia aggressor” line—since the US/NATO were planning this attack on Germany and Russia already in January 2022—and before.
Etc. Lots of oddities in the story.
Thanks for that. I have much admiration for Roger Waters lately. He’s correct about the war profiteers and racketeers. FJB.
There is so much to admire in the brilliant Roger Waters. But that Dave Gilmour and his moronic wife spout the usual US/NATO propaganda lies and BS though !
Meanwhile CNN is reporting “Madonna hits back at criticism of her appearance.” With a personality like Roger Waters at the U.N. Security council, one would think there would be at least a one small spot on CNN’s page for that event. I must surmise Madonna is more newsworthy. BBC isn’t reporting anything either. They are still talking about the China air ballon.
So, back to the old question; if a tree fell in the woods, and a CNN reporter was not there to film it, did the tree reallly fall over?
Something has got the military shaking in their boots, and I think its the inability to win first, and secondly the inability to stop the needless pranking and fighting. If not it is a military financial war.
And never mind the economic fallout cause 1/2 of them wont be here, or wont want to be here, after the fact.
