Military Review

On the propaganda front

91
Currently, the White House is leading an unprecedented information war with its main opponents - Russia and China. A dense stream of the most diverse lies about respectable and endlessly peace-loving America is being pumped into the mass consciousness of the inhabitants of the planet, allegedly building an ideal society in which all humans will exist in paradise. At the same time, American ideologists blame Moscow and Beijing for distorting the truth and for spreading misinformation about all the good undertakings of Washington. To end this injustice once and for all, two members of the American Congress, apparently inspired by the ideas of the English writer Orwell, who in his famous novel “1984” told how the Ministry of Truth functions in Oceania, composed a new bill called the Law on Counteracting Information War "from 2016 year (Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016).


The initiator of the draft law was Republican Adam Kinzinger, who, together with his colleague Ted Lew, a member of the Democratic Party, compiled the text of this act. The draft law, which has already been assigned the HR number 5181, was submitted to 10 in May to the House of Representatives and is an addition to the draft law of the Senate S. 2692, which was also called the “Law on Countering the Information War”. This law aims to assist American allies in countering propaganda from Russia, China and other countries.

According to Kinzinger, "at the moment when Russia and China are conducting hybrid military campaigns, the United States has a unique opportunity to respond to these manipulations with a powerful stream of truthful information." He believes that the new approach to counter-propaganda “will help avoid conflicts and guarantee stability in the future.” “While Russia continues to spread its misinformation and false messages, it interferes with the United States and damages their interests in regions such as Ukraine, and also feeds further instability in these countries,” the author of the bill said.

Congressman Liu said that "from Ukraine to the South China Sea during disinformation campaigns, more is being done than the mere spread of anti-Western sentiment." He said that these actions are aimed at manipulating public consciousness, at juggling with facts, at undermining democracy and US interests. Lew also added that all this "makes the world less secure."

NEW CENTER OF COUNTERPROPAGANDA


A key aspect of this bill is the proposal to establish the Center for Information Analysis and Response within the structure of the State Department. As Kinzinger announced, the creation of such a center "will give the United States a unique opportunity to direct a powerful stream of truth, ensuring world stability and preventing conflicts."

The Information Analysis and Counteraction Center (CIAI) should be organized by the US foreign minister in collaboration with the Secretary of Defense (DOD), the director of national intelligence (DPR) and the chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). CAIP members will lead and coordinate the collection of information on the military preparations of foreign governments, including data to which the relevant authorities have access to various foundations and organizations operating under the allocated grants, as well as from other sources.

In addition, the CAIP management must create structures that ensure the integration of the information received and conduct an analysis of foreign propaganda and disinformation in order to make the necessary additions and corrections to the US national strategy. The CAIP specialists, in cooperation with the Minister of Defense, the National Intelligence Director and the Chairman of the Broadcast Management Board (CELS), as well as other federal departments and offices, should develop a joint action plan in the field of counter-propaganda and coordinate the activities of all agencies involved in this process. The center is obliged to inform the public about US government initiatives in the area of ​​counter-propaganda and the response measures taken to combat misinformation and propaganda measures of hostile countries against America, as well as to provide the necessary protection for allies and friendly states against such information attacks.

The draft of the new law TSAIP is prescribed to lead the joint activities of all institutions involved in counter-propaganda. He must constantly monitor and evaluate propaganda acts of foreign countries that threaten the interests of the national security of the United States and its allies. Its employees are required to collect and analyze all necessary information, including intelligence reports and summaries, analytical data and assessments of experts from government agencies, from relevant structures of allied countries, from brain trusts, from academic institutions, from community groups and from other non-governmental organizations (NGOs ). In addition, CAIP specialists should identify and monitor trends in the development of forms and methods of propaganda of foreign countries and methods of disseminating relevant materials. This activity includes the control of print sources, television and radio programs, social networks, public associations, political parties, think tanks and NGOs. Their responsibilities will include carrying out activities to monitor the closed operations of the special services and their agents, aimed at certain segments of the population and government bodies.

All this should be done with the aim of developing forms and methods of countering hostile propaganda and timely and correctly informing the American public about this type of activity of unfriendly countries. In addition, in the process of counter-propaganda there should be an effective exchange of the most advanced technologies of countering propaganda actions among all participants in this process. At the same time, it is necessary to constantly identify groups of the population most susceptible to foreign propaganda, both in the United States and in the allied countries.

INFO WELLS TURNS UP


As already noted, the proposed law is in addition to the draft law S. 2692, introduced by Republican Senator Rob Portman and Democratic Senator Chris Murphy 16 in March of this year. According to Portman, the law will expand the ability of the United States to counteract foreign propaganda and disinformation and will help organizations and various communities in allied and friendly countries to defend themselves against the propaganda effects of hostile foreign countries.

In a recent speech at the Atlantic Council Research Center in Washington, Portman announced to the audience that the United States is not fully taking the necessary measures to counteract foreign propaganda and disinformation that today dominate the information space and destabilize the situation in the world. According to the parliamentarian, Russia, China and other countries are trying to manipulate facts and control information "to achieve their national goals, often at the expense of the interests and values ​​of American allies."

This bill, which covers a wide range of counter-propaganda issues, provides for the creation of a Center for analyzing information and responding to the efforts of foreign governments in the information war. Portman expressed his surprise at the fact that currently there is no separate organization within the structure of the US government that at the national level would develop, integrate and synchronize the implementation of a comprehensive government strategy to counteract foreign propaganda and disinformation.

The draft law states that such a center should be created. Its specialists will process and distribute "fact-based review and analytical materials to combat propaganda and misinformation against the United States, its allies and partners." He also noted that Russia annually spends about 400 million dollars to finance only the Washington bureau of the round-the-clock channel RT, while the White House only requested 768 million for the next fiscal year for the operation of all national broadcasting structures around the world.

The draft law provides for the creation of a special fund to assist in training journalists, issuing grants and contracts to NGOs, public organizations, research centers, private sector companies, the media, and independent experts with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in disinformation methods used foreign services. The bill also calls for special attention to be paid to students and public leaders who apply for participation in exchange programs of the State Department and reside in countries that are heavily influenced by misinformation and propaganda campaigns of foreign countries.

Chairman of the Federation Council’s International Affairs Committee Konstantin Kosachev noted that “American colleagues decided to seriously take up the“ streams of truth ”that America should bring down to the rest of the world so that it would accept the American point of view as the only possible truth. According to him, this “is very similar to the practice of the former USSR with its sophisticated counter-propaganda system.” “Then this system in the USA was called directly contradicting the principles of freedom of speech and pluralism of opinions,” the senator stated.

Now it is even difficult to imagine what flows of deliberate lies and tampered facts from the suggestion of the White House, which is building the totalitarian planet, will bring down American propagandists in the writing of fables to the world community if the zealous overseas parliamentarians succeed in pushing through this law.

            "Kremlin propaganda" is nothing in terms of efficiency, compared to the Western formation of "public opinion". As one of the greats said, "The truth is one, and the lie has a million guises." So, with the help of one truth, fight, lose in advance. It is only in fairy tales that truth and goodness always wins. In life, it is almost always the other way around. Isn't it time to adopt some dirty tricks of our opponents, anyway no one will figure it out. Why is it already half the victory in an ordinary war to drain misinformation and mislead the enemy, And how does an ordinary war differ from an information one? The same war, only without the use of tanks and aircraft.

        And still need, not only to the central apparatus and personally to Minister Lavrov to "work", but also to those who work in the field! It was sad to hear in the "Trial" program (TV "Zvezda") that the US ambassador to Armenia constantly travels around the country, reaching the most remote villages, but the Russian ambassador, most of the citizens of Armenia, do not even know! But a similar picture was (which it was, it remained so) in Ukraine and other post-Soviet republics.

          When the American ambassador travels around the country, it is a democracy. When Russian, this is not a friendly act. Unfortunately, this issue has been missed, and corrupt politicians and the press are reporting that way. Everything is bought. Question. How much is Russia ready to dump money on a frank bribe of frankly venal figures? For example, in Ukraine, only on direct bribes through various funds and left cash, the State Department tumbled into the tens of billions of green, and then we are surprised that we missed. True, in our world, no one needs us apart from ourselves.

        In the fall of 2015, "Propaganda" appeared on NTV with Elena Milinchich. This beautiful program disappeared in 2016. Nowhere can I find any information on this. So Ms. Milincic, as they say, - at one time! could any European or American stuffing, under the guise of the ultimate truth, to expose. She did it gracefully, subtly, on the case, as they say. It turned out to be undesirable in that I helped a Russian person who feels a catch and deception - to find worthy arguments for this.

      On July 4, 1950, a radio station "Free Europe" was opened on the territory of West Germany! "... we have launched the liberty bell! This station sends out signals of 'truth' every day ...!" The USA is just a deposit of "truth"! laughing

      By the way, they worked there against their homeland: Alexander Galich, Sergei Dovlatov, Anatoly Gladilin, this is one of the celebrities ..., and also the once-genrector of NTV Kulistikov, the current mouthpiece of Ukrainian freedom Savik Shuster and other "truth-rubs" of our time! laughing

          The question is, did they conduct propaganda with foreign money, or what?
          Vladimir Vysotsky was clearly at odds with the authorities, but when he was offered to stay behind the hill and to promote liberal values, he sent Westerners quite far. He said that it’s not your business, we will figure it out ourselves.
          Do not bring everything together. Disagreements on the basis of ideology are not the same as betrayal of one’s homeland.

          Any sound opposition to power is necessary. But for some reason, we call the opposition geeks working out foreign grants. People who absolutely do not connect their future with this country. This is not an opposition to the authorities, this is an opposition to the people.

              Vysotsky dismissed Razer's assumption that the Soviet government was afraid of its possible non-return. “I'm leaving for the fourth or fifth time and always come back. This is ridiculous! If I were a person who is afraid to leave the country, it would be a completely different interview. I calmly sit in front of you, calmly answer your questions. I love my country and do not want to harm it. And I will never cause it. ”

        For two and a half years in Ukraine from the media or official statements, I have not heard a word of truth, most often outright nonsense. And that, in Russia they laugh, but in Ukraine, half of the country hates Russia to shivering knees. And who won? Who here in Ukraine needs the truth when it is more pleasant for them to hear about the great Ukrainian nation, and about the Russian "aggressors". Few people know how to think critically, most want to be deceived by sweet speeches. Unfortunately, I didn’t come up with it, this is the reality.

    And on the globe, wherever you stick your finger, the "interests" of the United States are everywhere. "Naglometer" and "borzometer" are already going through the roof from their irrepressible appetite to their interests.
    Congressman Lew said that "from Ukraine to the South China Sea, disinformation campaigns do more than just spread anti-Western sentiment." He said that these actions are aimed at manipulating public consciousness, juggling facts, and undermining US democracy and interests. Lew also added that all of this "makes the world less secure."
    And what else did they want, because we learned all this from them. We have "finalized" this system for ourselves, so we are hitting the Americans with it. Get it! "Don't spit in the well, it will fly back, you won't catch it."

        If no miracle happens, then I'm afraid, all the same, you will have to "reinstall" the system, with all the ensuing consequences. So after this "reinstallation", we will write on the clay with chips.
        Now on the topic.
        We have made a hole in the side, through which all this disinformation comes in, which sinks our ship. I am not strong in politics, economics, I don’t know a lot, and I don’t understand, and in view of my perception of the world, I can’t understand in any way why the authorities do not interfere with the penetration of these liberals with their values ​​into "our territory." Everything that is happening in the country now reminds me not of a trip to a doctor in case of illness, but an attempt to go to a fortune-teller, a healer, or a shaman who are trying to heal the body with conspiracies and persuasion. Delete only.
        In the meantime, we have the leadership of the country, with the business elite running around the healers, there will be no sense, I think the patient will sooner be dead than alive. Many say that it’s like a bait for flies that fly into a trap, but for some reason the trap does not work, and these children of Goebels do their job, both through the media and in person.

        The problem with the authorities, now more serious than a year ago, there are more opponents of the authorities and the president, and there are many more, and it is useless to fight against this, many do not understand that the sum of the numbers does not change due to the change in terms. And the example of Ukraine does not work for many, many agree to tighten their belts tighter, but want an example to be set by the leaders who strangle the workers, but they themselves want to live as before.

Most U.S. citizens do not care what is and is going on outside the states, whether there is life there or not, they live in a world separate from the whole world. Therefore, U.S. citizens will not be able to influence through propaganda. The CIA can blow up another skyscraper and say that the terrorists were Russians, and all American citizens, will unite in the desire to destroy Russia. Europe can still be reasoned with, so the states are changing the European population to refugees of migrants, blacks, Arabs, etc. But with the USA, there’s a complete disaster, the population is bulletproof, they don’t want to see what's going on beyond their nose wink

    A key aspect of this bill is the proposal to create a Center for Analysis of Information and Counteraction in the structure of the State Department.
    It can be shorter, and has long been invented - the Ministry of Truth. And powerful streams of "truthful" information, yellow and corresponding aroma will flow.

    For the "earless and tailless shepherd dog." in words, you are such a "taiga". Nuggets are mined here for everyone. He himself worked at the Olympiadinsky mine, there they blow up and wash. That's it. My country is Russia !!! And do not play as a braggart. Or we will measure a dog in the taiga, but the taiga is not worse than your swamps. And the Yenisei is better than the Ob.

    Dear, write everything correctly, but who doesn’t allow us to Russia to play both a counter game and impose our own? Sitting and waiting for what move the opponent will make can be sensible, but only for a while, you need to be able to beat first, more and more diverse, you need to bring your position if you want to advertise more

    Americans clearly overestimate themselves to heaven. A return to reality will be sad (tragic) for them.

    truth, only truth and nothing but the truth. Well, a little misinformation,


    So all decent media work like this. Both them and ours. Nobody will listen to the rabid lie. True, true, true (the main thing that people want to hear) laughing ... Well, and inadvertently put in what should be "vparit". Rat poison is also mixed into normal food, and rats are sometimes smarter than people. wink

    Do you know the slogan of the world's largest news channel CNN? "We're making the news." They do not even hesitate to admit that the news on this channel is not covered, but made. And about the outrageous lie. Ukraine is a clear example. More than half of the country believes in outright nonsense, and the rest of the world is the same. In Germany in 1941. almost 100% of Germans firmly believed that the Slavs were subhuman, and were worthy only of destruction, everyone supported the war and were not against concentration camps. Only after getting on the sopatka in 1945, some began to change their minds. And it took years of harsh propaganda to clear the brains of people even in the GDR. It is generally not clear how in our age of the Internet, when almost all information is freely available, one can be mistaken. There is only one conclusion, people want to be deceived, and they believe more beautiful fairy tales than the truth.

    What is counterpropaganda? To lie openly to our residents that we are the best, and the whole world is stupid people? For whom does Soloviev, Kiselev, Tolstoy broadcast? Are they watched in America? No, they "agitate" our citizens. And why not call a spade a spade. Propaganda is now a lie. And our TV has succeeded in this much more than others. It is enough to turn on TV in Europe and see what they are talking about, and ours. If you look through the TV channels on Sunday evening, then 90% of it is about how bad it is, what kind of fiends they are. It remains to answer the question why our government sends children there, rich people buy real estate, people keep their money in dollars. In general, this nonsense (although for someone this is all pure truth, for those who have not seen the world except their entrance) it is not possible to watch on our TV.
