Aleppo Boy Stunt v. What Media Scoundrels Won’t Show
by Stephen Lendman
Aleppo boy Omran Daqneesh is too young to know he’s being used as a prop in America’s war OF terror on humanity – Syria in the eye of the storm. 
His image gone viral is a propaganda stunt to demonize Russia and Syria unfairly, enlist public support for greater US-led  aggression on a nonbelligerent sovereign independent state, and perhaps massacre or maim a few million Syrians before things end – so America can claim another imperial trophy.
Omran’s image showed him looking remarkably calm for an allegedly injured little boy compared to the bloodied, clearly distraught and traumatized unnamed child below – imperial America’s real face media scoundrels won’t report or show.

He’s like countless millions more like him, in Syria, other regional countries and elsewhere – victims of US imperial viciousness, its terrorist foot soldiers serving its interests.
Washington wants sovereign Syrian independence replaced by puppet governance it controls. Stunts like the Aleppo boy make it easier to sell war to an uninformed nation of morons seduced by The New York Times and other scoundrel media propaganda.
Russia, Iran and Syria with perhaps help from China represent the best hope for long-suffering Syrians to prevail over dark US forces and their imperial allies.
On Saturday, democratically elected/overwhelmingly popular President Bashar al-Assad affirmed the determination of millions of Syrians to maintain unity in defending their homeland despite the cost in pain, suffering, lost lives and vast destruction.
Russia, Iran, Syria, China, along with billions of people wanting peace, stability and freedom worldwide represent good v. US-led pure evil. Their struggle is ours.
