"Look at this hustle. According to this bourgeois rag if you oppose U.S. imperialism and its warmongering you are either a Russia troll or influence by the Russians. Folks the people of the world see the U.S. as the greatest threat to world peace the Russians didn't create that perception, good old fashion U.S. imperialism created that correct perception." Ajamu Baraka

Since the U.S. and its allies attacked Syria Friday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks on its own people, there has been a significant surge in Russian trolls promoting fake news, the Pentagon announced Saturday.

“As Secretary Mattis said last night, the Russian disinformation campaign has already begun,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a press conference. “There has been a 2,000 percent increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours. Therefore, we will keep you all abreast of the facts moving forward.”

“Based on recent experience, we fully expect a significant disinformation campaign over the coming days by those who have aligned themselves with the Assad regime,” said Mattis, adding that White and Lieutenant General Kenneth F. McKenzie would speak “in effort to maintain transparency and accuracy.”

White said the U.S. does not seek conflict with Syria but “cannot allow such grievous violations of international law” and attacks on innocent Syrians.

“We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russia and Iran, ignores international law,” White said. “We call upon Russia to honor its commitment to ensure the Assad regime dismantles its chemical weapons program and never uses chemical weapons again.”
