Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It is used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television and other media and may provide either factual or non-factual information to its audiences. Through several international broadcasting operations, the US disseminates American cultural information, official positions on international affairs, and daily summaries of international news. I'm sure everybody has heardt about the americans' lifestyle, food, government and so on. This information caught everything around, we try to be like the USA, have the same opinions, keep long-term friendly relations and just be like them. Propaganda, in this case, is one of the most common and powerful.

Strategic communication can be a major tool against adversaries that threaten values supported by the United States. U.S. strategic communication promotes democratization and good governance. It proved vital in winning the Cold War. In the 21st Century, it is critical in countering the radical ideologies of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, al- Qaeda and other extremist organizations.

I took advantage of my meeting with aunt-journalist from Russia and asked about propaganda in her country. Russian media every time give untrue information about Ukraine. Using false facts TV channels, being controlled by the government accuse our citizens of eating people. Of course, many smart persons with critical thinking dislike faking news. But some of them believe in that. After our conversation I'm sure our government should pay attention to information policy and denounce Russian media in promoting anti-Ukrainian propaganda. It's high time Ukraine should had established TV broadcasting according in compliance with the European Broadcast Standards

If you want to communicate effectively, creating a strategic communications plan is a great place to start. A strategic communications plan should include an understanding of the target audience and how you will reach it; a reflection on past efforts and how well they worked; and what messages you want to deliver to which audiences. Then it specifies the material to be produced and the financial resources you will have to do the work. From this I can make for myself the conclusion that the US has the most effective propaganda (strategic communication). Not a small role in this game is played by globalization and a clear visibility of American success in various fields.

Propaganda is everywhere and has been around for a long time.Every newspaper, magazine, news channel, radio station, advertisement, or any other types of mass media contain elements of propaganda. The light heartedness of the topic blinds a person to the fact that they are still reading a source of propaganda making people not realize how common propaganda truly is. Wartime propaganda is so important that it can often be used as a weapon because of the power that comes with public support. One of the best examples of propaganda is the work of mass media in Iraq. The ability to win public support can be just as important as the ability to fight the war. One of the aspect of war propaganda in Iraq that complicates the war is the media’s reporting.  Media sources, like CNN, have grown to so influential on public opinion that they can force the different parties at war to focus on certain issues by raising public awareness of the issue.  The issues concerning propaganda are complex and numerous but it is known that propaganda can be one of the main weapons used in psychological warfare and can significantly affect the outcome of a war.  Propaganda can influence people to believe a certain ideology whether that ideology is right or wrong.

What is the country that even almost every little kid in the world knows about? This is exactly the one with the better strategic plan and abilities. And I am talking about the US. America's scheme of dissemination, promotion and exposition the world's population to its own democratic values, breaking news and strict beliefs is an effective instance of well-thought strategic communiction and propaganda campaigns. Being one of the strongest players on the modern world's arena, this state represents success and development in various spheres, therefore cmmunicates with other states concerning the vital questions from fighting terrorism to flobal warming. So, I am convinsed that exactly the ability and knowledge of the US how to negotiate right, be a model for the rest of the world and a good competitor is an undeniable example of effective strategic communication.

That goes without saying the US have more effective strategic communication. In my opinion, each act from authorities is more successful when citizens support them and are deeply convinced about their patriotism. When it comes to the US i can say so. Through several international broadcasting operations, the US disseminates American cultural information, official positions on international affairs, and daily summaries of international news. These operations fall under the International Broadcasting Bureau, the successor of the United States Information Agency, established in 1953. IBB's operations include Voice of America, Radio Liberty, Alhurra and other programs. They broadcast mainly to countries where the United States finds that information about international events is limited, either due to poor infrastructure or government censorship.

In my opinion, after the end of the Second World War, the United States understood their importance in the world. So,they began to massively spread their values ​​around the world. The United States defined strategic communication with Europe as the basis of their foreign policy. And They show us the best in history correctness and consistency of the use of strategic communications The US important factor that has helped the United States to succeed is the proper use of the propaganda . In contrast to the Soviet Union, US values ​​were more attractive to the population of any state. The best example of this could be "jeans", which, after the collapse of the USSR, have become the trend of any shops. The USSR forced other to believe in their ideals, while the United States encouraged people to their culture, and their views.

I see lots of news daily. True or fake. Facebook, analyzing my habits, show me some from Sputnik or Free Europe, sometimes my friends share some nostalgic news. I see news about Trump, Merkel, Macron, Putin, not in that order. My Tv shows me later the same. So according to my habits, I never receive something from ISIS. I think I'm too old for them...All propaganda try to manipulate the free will of people with some better or worse news. USA, Russia or EU try to find new places for influence. ISIS need fanatic believers in Coran and young people who believe the Jihad is the way to redemption for the entire world. Money moves all things and interests. Every world power tries to have a bigger sphere of influence where they can have resources, money or allies. So, using this, people can change governments, according to some little messages received every day, which act like „Chinese water drop.” I vote for the USA, but lately, Russia does some pretty good job especially in Romania where people become more nostalgic about communism. I see a decrease in EU support now in my country, but I hope things are reversible.

The best example of the propaganda is demonstrated by the US. During a long time the US has been influencing different countries of the world and its influence was and is very strong. The US is the first country in the world which was able to build the effective propaganda. Nowadays the US has influence in the EU, Latin America, Asia, former countries of the USSR and Yugoslavia. We can see these processes in the news, social media, radio, Internet. Constantly people of the different countries observe the standoff between the US and the RF but which country will be the winner, maybe, we will see soon...
