And What About Those Biolabs? By Philip Giraldi

If you really want to get up a good hate for Russia, just forget everything that happened prior to its invasion of Ukraine and ignore the revelations concerning the biolabs in Ukraine. From Philip Giraldi at unz.com:

The semi-official United States government plus media lie machine knows that constructing a plausible reason to bomb the crap out of someone all depends on where you begin your narrative.
