Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ignites www diplomatic incident.

Looks like you literally had to be there, in the room, with a recording device, to "trust but verify" another impolitic rant.

Youtube, C-SPAN suppress White House daily briefing video. Google backfills the entire, gaping Lula's China-UAE tour with MSM day-late, dollar-short Lavrov-Vieira reportage. Who'd be the wiser? White House simply stopped publishing briefing and [SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL] preview transcripts after 10 April "Discord Leak".

White House lashes out at Brazil over Ukraine. KIRBY, propounding a oft-repeated, ironic G7 demand that Xi needs "Ukraine's perspective", purportedly said: "in this case, Brazil is parroting Russian and Chinese propaganda without at all looking at the facts."

Manipulation by White House and Pentagon war propaganda

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is "parroting Russian and Chinese propaganda" by claiming that the West is not interested in ending the fighting in Ukraine, US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby has stated.

During his visit to China last week, Lula said that "the US needs to stop encouraging war and start talking about peace. The European Union needs to start talking about peace."

The leftist politician, who made a comeback as Brazilian president after succeeding Jair Bolsonaro in early 2023, also reportedly suggested that the status of Crimea should be up for discussion during the talks between Moscow and Kiev. Lula also offered to become a part of the group mediating a peaceful settlement.

Simple solution, civil servants are discouraged to read Western newspapers and watch US talks shows with members US Congress. A complete 180 degree reverse view and opinion in the developing world. Less stressful too.
