INFORMATION WAR: Russian Information Warfare is so Advanced that Even Airplane Contrails Are Fair Game for Misinformation

Russian information warfare is so advanced that even frozen water particles that form behind a jet engine are open for controversy.  As a result, we should be very suspicious of information related to the Russia – Ukraine crisis. 

The amount of garbage inserted in the information we receive today is significant.  Whether it be information about COVID, the 2020 Election, or now the Russia-Ukraine crisis.  All of the information related to these events must be carefully scrutinized.  Everything must be scrutinized.

For example, what are those trails in the sky that form behind jets flying over the friendly skies?  According to

Some planes in the sky leave trails that persist and spread, and other planes, in the same sky, leave short-lived trails, or no trails at all.

These trails are actually called contrails, short for “condensation trails”.  They are not smoke from the engines, they are formed when the water in jet engine exhaust (and there’s quite a lot of it, like car exhaust on a cold day) mixes with wet cold air and condenses and freezes into ice crystals.  Contrails are actually a type of cirrus cloud.  When the air is wet and cold enough the trails can stay around for a long time, and sometimes spread out.

This difference between trails that fade away, and trails that spread, is often used as evidence of the “chemtrail” theory, which states that the longer lasting trails (or some of them) are being deliberately manipulated for some reason.  So you see helpful images like this.

But not so according to propaganda that can be tied back to Russian operative Lada Ray.  Ms. Ray who was once stationed in Cuba and Hong Kong is now in the US.  She pushes out so much garbage that a dumpster is needed to hold it all.

Part of information warfare is to create chaos and confusion or to add just enough crazy to a story based predominantly on facts to make the purveyor of this information look crazy.

A good example of Ms. Ray’s information warfare is the story about “chemtrails”.  This storyline that airplanes were being used to spray chemicals all over the world can be traced back to Lada Ray.  Now there is an entire website dedicated to this subject.

Ms. Ray has a history of pushing garbage on the Net in an effort to confuse and disinform Americans.   She is not alone.

Russia, China, and the West are all involved in information warfare.  This makes it very difficult to determine the truth in regard to the Russia-Ukraine crisis.  Economic – information and kinetic warfare are all used to manipulate and conquer.
