Paragraph two. Author refers to Russian news sites as "truthtellers".

These Russian sites are pretty much ground-zero for most of the disinformation campaigns out there. They were the known source of numerous lies/slanders that were featured in the most recent US election (all passed on by rightwing US sites). Russian media now is not much different than when it was run by the Soviets.

It's the same objection I have about the US and England liberating Iran from it's democracy in 1953...

..and the same objection I would have if the Iraqis came over here to liberate us from Donald Trump. It's none of our business.

But, beyond that, if you think that that the US powers-that-be actually mean well and care about Iraqis I suggest you read Freeing the World to Death by William Blum.
