Putin-appointed Russian TV host Dmitry Kisiliov asserts that the United States could stage a fake provocation to go to war with Russia and Syria.
Noting that the United States had now moved on to “Plan B” in Syria – directly targeting Syrian and Russian military forces – Kisiliov warned that Washington could be preparing stage a contrived false flag event to justify the new assault.
“Can a provocation used to start a war be excluded?” asked Kisiliov.
Given the experience of the beginning of the world wars, the first and second, provocation worked as a trigger,” he added.
“The Vietnam war also began with an American organized provocation,” said Kisiliov, referring to the Gulf of Tonkin incident, an alleged attack on the USS Maddox by North Vietnamese boats that is now widely thought by historians to have never actually happened.
The TV host also cited America’s “false pretenses” under which they launched attacks on Iraq and Libya.
“Because they got away with it, the United States ignored the international law and no longer understands words,” Kisiliov concluded.
As we reported last month, the U.S. State Department warned of terror attacks in Russian cities and even shoot downs of Russian jets if Vladimir Putin continued his fight against ISIS in Syria, remarks that Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova took as a direct threat.
However, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, promised that Moscow would shoot back if the United States attempted to launch a “shadow hot war” against Russia and Syria.
Kisiliov’s warning is noteworthy given that the prime time host “enjoys the largest audience among news programs in Russia”.
Kisiliov (alternative spelling Kiselyov) is a controversial but prominent journalist in Russia. He was personally appointed by Russian President Vladimir Putin to head the new official Russian government-owned international news agency Rossiya Segodnya in December 2013.
Kisiliov previously made headlines when he asserted that the elite may assassinate Donald Trump to prevent him from becoming president.
