Neocon Washington Post Urges Escalated US War on Syria
by Stephen Lendman
In March 2011, America launched proxy war on Syria, raping a nonbelligerent country, using ISIS and other terrorist fighters as imperial foot soldiers – Pentagon warplanes supporting them.
WaPo editors urge escalated US intervention, wanting one of history’s great crimes made more horrific than already. A same day article explained it’s being considered. Whether implementation follows remains to be seen.
Media scoundrels feature deplorable managed news misinformation and Big Lies – truth and full disclosure suppressed, especially when America goes to war.
“On September 19, Russian and Syrian planes shredded the cease-fire deal…by bombing one of the humanitarian convoys it had authorized – a blatant war crimes,” WaPo editors disgracefully reported.
Fact: Russia and Syria had nothing to do with what happened, US-sponsored terrorists bearing full responsibility, likely acting with Washington’s authorization.
WaPo: “(T)he Russian regime of Vladimir Putin (is conducting) multiple bombings of hospitals (and) killing…hundreds of children” in Aleppo.
Fact: Pentagon and coalition warplanes along with US-supported terrorists carry out all these heinous attacks – Russia and Syria falsely blamed for their high crimes.
WaPo: “…Putin chose not to go forward with a cease-plan” negotiated with Washington in Geneva last month.
Fact: Russia and Syria observed its terms scrupulously over the agreed on 7-day “regime of silence.” US-supported terrorists violated them 300 times.
WaPo editors repeated numerous other tired old lies about ongoing war in Syria – supporting US imperial lawlessness, blaming its victimized sovereign state along with Russia for responsibly intervening to preserve and protect it.
Propaganda works, repeated enough gets most people to believe it. Big Lies drown out hard truths, especially when America wages naked aggression against nonbelligerent countries. Media scoundrels cheerlead what demands denunciation.
WaPo editors urge escalating Obama’s war on Syria, raping it more than already, instead of responsibly supporting restoring peace and stability to the war-torn country and providing vital aid for its long-suffering people.
