    Russia propaganda isn't very good

    https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/...-isis-support/

    Really now, using video game footage to "prove" we are aiding ISIS?

    (And it's not the first time they've used stuff from video games, either.)

    That's what they want you to think. And they have succeeded. Now you are primed to accept their good stuff as real, because you "know" that if it was propaganda it would be shoddy and obvious.

    Or perhaps there's no Russian propaganda here at all - but you have successfully been duped into becoming a vector for some cunning advertising by Byte Conveyor Studios for their AC130 simulator game.

    The problem with lies is that they are under no obligation to be simple, obvious, or in any way related to their apparent target or purpose.

    You are too slow and not very good. They already found saboteur responsible and sent him to prison
    Of course they also posted real pictures. US by the way, does not deny the fact.

    Russians post proof that USA is helping ISIS!!!!!!

    …except that the "proof" is actually a screen shot from a video game.

    Whoops.

    Maybe I should have posted this in the humor forum?

    That's pretty damning evidence, the US supplied five different types of aircraft!

    I think saboteur is probably CIA agent
    But shit happens all the time

    The Pentagon’s official Twitter account has retweeted then quickly deleted a post that included a call for President Donald Trump to resign.
