‘Have You Any Common Sense?’ Putin Crushes BBC Journalist’s Stupid Questions

21st Century Wire says…

It turns out that common sense is quite severely lacking in mainstream, Western journalism.

Russia’s President Putin found himself having to ask BBC journalist John Simpson if he has any common sense at all, as he pushed the establishment line that Russia is an aggressor in the world.

Putin contends that Russia is “standing up for its national interests“, and is visibly frustrated by the frankly ignorant questions that Simpson poses. Putin asks, “why are you threatening us” and “what business have they got there“, in reference to U.S. military bases throughout Europe.

He also notes that Russia’s military budget is around $50 billion, while the U.S. equivalent is around $575 billion. and asks:“And you’re telling me I’m the aggressor here? Have you any common sense at all?

Despite this fact Russia still manages to trump NATO with the world’s best air defence system that it has now deployed in Syria, so what exactly is the Western military industrial complex doing with all that money?

Russia has massively embarrassed the West with its recent actions in Syria, refusing to hold back in its highly successful campaign against ISIS, so this move by the BBC joins other recent attempts to paint Russia as an enemy.

The following interview has been viewed, in total, over one million times, which is testament to how powerfully it really is:

  • He should have asked Putin about the 128 journalist KILLED in Russia since he took control.

    • First time i’ve come across this story and i suspect it’s just that, a story

      Yes now and then Russia does bump people off but not half as fast as the USA is doing and NO, Russia did not do 9/11 before you start.

    • AllRoadsLead2NWO

      Hey, at least Russia used to have some ‘real journalists’ instead of just NWO regurgitation reporters like here in the US INC.

  • Why do you thing the British call it the Bias Broadcasting Company, they stick to the agenda.

  • The other day i watch “national geographic” Air crash investigations about the downing of a flight over lockerby and its a total joke.

    No one world said about the “Pregnant Girlfreind” who apparantly carried the bomb abord the plane and they take a 6mm by 7mm but from a circuit board and say they can track it back to where it came from and was used for and the same goes for the suite case and clothes in the suitecase.

    They are making it up as they go along and lets face it we did not need a year long investigaion because the BBC knew who did it (as is the case with MH17) before the fires were even out.

    Samne with what we are being feed about WWII where Hitler could do no good, Americans could do no harm and the only people killed were “the jews, the jews , the jews” and apparantly Germans were so short of bullets that they took “the jews” out of the camps on to a long walk to walk them to death but left the weak ones back at the camps, kept feeding them untill we turned up and happen to “Liberate” them.

    Yes we have been feed a pack of lies most of our lives and to gain control back they are trying to take over the internet.

  • Go Putin!!!!!!!!

  • Russia is in Syria looking out for its own national interests and securing access to a warm water port for strategic reasons.
    Yet, Putin has really poked his finger in the eyes of our jellyfish leaders who have allowed ISIS to rape, torture and murder with virtual impunity. Who wet themselves at the thought of further military engagement to protect civilians from horrific gas attacks.
    Putin rolls up his sleeves, whistles up his air force and cruise missiles, sends in 50,000 troops and will probably end this conflict in a month.
    No wonder there is so much thumb-sucking going on in the hallowed corridors of Western governments.
    And don’t blame our military. They are furious at the cowardly compromises of our weak leaders.

    • AllRoadsLead2NWO

      The US INC military belongs to the bankers with the gold fringed old glory flag,.there are 2 flags here, one for the sheeple and one for their owners. Eventually it will be another International banker war just like the last 2 world wars. Western Central Banks vs. Eastern Central Banks again, and the Rothschild’s always win, every time, guaranteed.
