Eastern Ghouta Propaganda War

by Stephen Lendman

US-led Western media reports on what’s going on read like Pentagon or CIA press releases – all presenting the same narrative.

Russia and Syria are disgracefully blamed for war crimes committed by US-supported terrorists – supplied with heavy Western and Israeli weapons.

The war was launched by Obama, continued by Trump, regime change and destroying Syrian sovereignty its objective – this and other vital information suppressed by media scoundrels.

Here’s a sampling of Western propaganda headlines:

NYT: “When No Place Is Safe: Sheltering Under Siege in Syria” – the Times turning truth on its head, falsely blaming Assad for US-led aggression on his country, calling terrorists “rebels,” pretending their violence is just.

Washington Post: “As Syria bloodshed continues, UN delays vote on emergency cease-fire” – claiming it’s “to halt the Syrian army’s furious blitz,” falsely blaming its forces for high crimes committed by US-supported terrorists.

Wall Street Journal: “Syria’s White Helmet Rescuers Capture Destruction in Eastern Ghouta.” They’re al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, not civil defense “rescuers.”

AP News: “Airstrikes on Suburbs of Syrian Capital Claim More Lives” – Shelling by terrorists are responsible, not Syrian or Russian aircraft.

Reuters: “UN Security Council delays vote on Syria ceasefire resolution” – quoting neocon extremist Nikki Haley tweeting: “Unbelievable that Russia is stalling a vote on a ceasefire allowing humanitarian access in Syria” – suppressing why a vote was delayed, its unacceptable text not changed.

Los Angeles Times: “World powers press for cease-fire in Syria, but UN doesn’t act” – repeating the Big Lie, claiming Syrian warplanes are “bombard(ing)” residential areas.

The Qatari dictatorship-owned and controlled Al Jazerra has been featuring daily propaganda reports on Eastern Ghouta, disgraceful rubbish.

On Saturday, it said over 400 civilians were killed in recent days, around 2,100 others injured – the London-based, Western funded Syrian Observatory for Human Rights one-man, anti-Syria propaganda operation its source.

Other information comes from White Helmets, allied with anti-Syria terrorists.

Al Jazeera correspondent James Bays disgracefully denigrated Syrian UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari for explaining vital truths during a Security Council session, saying:

He “stoutly defend(s) his government and whatever it does,” turning truth on its head adding:

“He is representing a government that is breaching international law – effectively many would say carrying out war crimes.”

Washington, its rogue allies, and their imperial foot soldiers bear full responsibility for crimes of war and against humanity.

Al Jazeera and other media propaganda reports irresponsibly blame Syria and Russia for high crimes they commit.

Endless war rages with no prospect for resolution any time soon because Washington wants war and regime change, not peace and stability restored.
