“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State. … Propaganda must always be essentially simple and repetitious. The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly… it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”– Joseph Goebbels, German Nazi “Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment”
The Russian authorities are in talks to establish military bases in Libya, Bloomberg reports.
According to the report, the deal has been negotiated following a meeting between Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and Khalifa Haftar, Libya’s eastern military commander, in Moscow in late September 2023.
The report says Russia may be given docking rights for its warships, most likely at the port city of Tobruk, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
