The NYT Supports US Aggression, Deplores World Peace

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

When the US wages aggression or plans it, the Times operates as a virtual Pentagon press agent — supporting the highest of high crimes demanding denunciation and accountability.

The Times is furious about Russian-led efforts to restore peace and stability to war-torn Syria, opposed to the partial withdrawal of US troops from northern parts of the country.

Its disinformation, Big Lies and fake news on war in Syria since launched by the Obama regime in March 2011 is some of the worst in modern memory — an exercise in mass deception, supporting US aggression instead of denouncing it.

Pentagon forces continue occupying northern and southern parts of the country illegally. US-led NATO/Israeli terror-bombing continues at their discretion.

Syria is a sovereign independent nation threatening no one. US aggression is all about wanting it transformed into a vassal state, isolating Iran regionally ahead of escalated steps to try toppling its legitimate government.

The Times is on board for all of the above, complicit in US high crimes for providing Pentagon press agent services.

In its latest edition, it raged against what Putin and Erdogan agreed to in Sochi Tuesday, a Russian good faith effort for conflict resolution, saying:

Talks “bolster(ed) Russian influence” as a regional power broker, “moving into territory vacated by the United States,” adding:

“Mr. Putin has emerged as the dominant force in Syria and a major power broker in the broader Middle East” at Washington’s expense.

“Russia, like China, has been flexing its muscles (sic), eager to fill the power vacuum left by a more isolationist United States (sic).” 

“In Syria, both Mr. Putin and Mr. Erdogan have seized opportunities created by Mr. Trump’s sudden withdrawal (sic).”

The Times never explained that US forces illegally attacked and occupy Syrian territory — what naked aggression is all about.

The Obama and Trump regimes use ISIS and other jihadists as proxy troops on the ground, supported by US special forces and Pentagon terror-bombing — flagrant UN Charter breaches.

Among major powers, Russia is the world’s leading peacemaker, diplomatic outreach its primary strategy, its forces in Syria at Assad’s request to help combat US supported terrorists.

Russian influence is benign, seeking peace, mutual cooperation among nations, and multi-world polarity. 

US imperial rage for regional and global dominance is polar opposite, seeking control over all other nations — naked aggression, color revolutions, economic terrorism, and old-fashioned coups its main strategies, what pure evil is all about.

Trump’s withdrawal from Syria was far from “sudden.” It’s unacceptably partial, not total. Northern and southern parts of the country remain illegally occupied by US forces, others in the region able to reenter Syrian territory quickly if ordered.

DJT’s deal with Turkey included nothing about ending Pentagon-led NATO and Israeli terror-bombing, continuing at their discretion.

The Times: “As the United States and Western Europe vacillated in their approach to Syria (sic)… Russia chose to protect its ally, Mr. al-Assad, and stuck with him despite fierce criticism from the West that the Syrian ruler was a brutal despot (sic).”

Fact: Overwhelmingly supported by Syrians, Assad is no “despot,” how the US, NATO, Israel, and their rogue allies characterize leaders of nations on the US target list for regime change — including Venezuela’s model democrat Nicolas Maduro.

As for Turkish/Russian relations, Erdogan knows Putin can be trusted, never the case in dealings with US ruling authorities.

The Times: “Mr. Putin…relishes chances to drive wedges into Western alliances (sic).”

He champions peace and stability, abhors wars of aggression, and wants to work cooperatively with leaders of other nations — aggression how the US and its imperial partners operate, not Moscow.

Separately, the Times falsely claimed Trump is “scal(ing) back America’s military presence around the world without waiting to negotiate concessions from foes like the Taliban or North Korea.”

The DPRK is a “foe” of no one. It’s a nonbelligerent state, wanting and deserving fundamental rights (and respect) mandated by international law — denied its ruling authorities and people by hegemon USA.

The Taliban want their country back, illegally attacked and occupied by US forces, no plans in Washington for withdrawing them, or removing covert CIA elements infesting the country. 

Hegemon USA is humanity’s greatest threat. Its rage for global dominance by endless wars and other hostile actions is a scourge harming everyone everywhere.
