Is everyone stocked up on Guinness, Jameson, and Irish Mist and Baileys?

I'm not Irish, but I love how the Irish and Irish-Americans party.

Oliver Stone has found a new home for his pro-Kremlin propaganda

OANN just announced they'll be airing Stone's "Ukraine On Fire" tomorrow night.

Shame that Russian- and RW-propaganda network won't be dropped by DirecTV till next month.

YouTube has flagged the documentary, so of course the RWNJs at Rumble welcomed it.

Wondering how long till we see Stone as a regular contributor for OANN and Newsmax and Fox News...



Btw, do NOT confuse Stone's pathetic excuse for a documentary with the excellent 2015 documentary "Winter On Fire," which is on Netflix, and which has been nominated for, and won, awards.

Stone's documentary was a year later and possibly has a title chosen to cause confusion.

"Winter On Fire" -- which I hope everyone will see -- is now available FREE on YouTube, thanks to Netflix:

Our response is a different matter. Ukraine’s example shows what we expect. Should there be any threat, we will respond,” he said in comments carried by Euractiv. ...

According to Kalabukhov, the West is posing a threat to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s security by claiming that Russia “is allegedly preparing a plan.”

“We do not have any plans. We will respond having analysed the strategic and geopolitical situation,” the ambassador said. NATO membership is not a reality for BiH given the current lack of consensus on the matter in the country, he added.
