Yes This Is A Game

640px-AC-130_TrainingSo the Kremlin released “irrefutable proof” that the US is aiding the Islamic State in Syria, by using AC-130 gunships to cover fleeing IS troops in order to use the survivors to further dastardly American objectives in the region.  (Even given the confusion and bizarre policy shifts of the US in the area, I find that one hard to swallow.)

The Russians’ irrefutable proof was a video that, it turns out, was drawn in part from a smartphone game, AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.  The rest of the proof were photos dating from 2016 showing the Iraqi Air Force attacking IS positions.

I think I know what’s going on here.  Up until last year, Russia led the world in fact-free government statements.  But the new US administration began dropping an enormous tonnage of fact-free statements on the hapless planet beginning on its first day in office, and is now number one in that category.  Russia refuses to permit a fact-free statement gap, and is now engaged in a massive escalation.

Expect more Russian statements in the near future concerning Russian ethnics’ rights in the Baltic, the Nazi menace from Ukraine, Hillary Clinton’s missing emails, and Russian compliance with the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Still, so broad is the American lead in this burgeoning new industry, that the Russians will truly have their work cut out.

I believe that the two-power standard requires America to maintain as much bullshit capacity as the next two bullshittiest countries combined.

But Russia provides much of our fake news. Shouldn’t that count on their side?
