Russian Foreign Ministry on Syria, US Political Persecution, and Other Issues

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

In response to escalated US aggression in Syria last week, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova (MZ below) slammed what happened as follows:

“We strongly condemn such actions and call for unconditional respect for the SAR’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.” 

“We reiterate that any attempts to turn Syrian territory into an arena for settling geopolitical scores are unacceptable.”

Biden officials tried justifying unjustifiable aggression —what’s been going on against Syria and its people since Obama/Biden began raping and destroying the country in March 2011.

Along with terror-bombing its cities and towns, it recruited, armed, funded, trained, and directs ISIS and other jihadists to commit atrocities against Syrian forces and its people.

What’s been ongoing for the past decade continues with no end of it in prospect because US dark forces abhor peace and the rule of law.

Post-9/11 alone, they’re responsible for countless millions of casualties in multiple theaters.

That’s how the scourge of imperialism operates, what Biden has supported since the early 1970s.

Commenting on the failure of Germany and France to respond to to letters sent their foreign ministers by Sergey Lavrov on phony accusations of Navalny’s “poisoning,” MZ said the following:

Ruling authorities of both countries “groundlessly accused Russia of (using) chemical warfare agents” against him.

Failure to provide evidence of the fabricated claim is because there is none.

MZ: “We interpret this not only as another case of double standards on the part of (both countries), but also as a lack of basic diplomatic courtesy.”

In cahoots with US dark forces, Berlin and Paris are complicit with their war on Russia by other means despite how what’s going on harms their own interests.

No Navalny poisoning occurred, what the US and EU countries know but falsely claim otherwise, blaming Russia for what didn’t happen.

MZ: Unacceptable actions by Germany and France toward Russia “revealed” their abhorrence of “multilateralism, objectivity and fairness in international affairs, as well as the fact that (both countries aren’t) prepared to be held accountable for what they say.”

MZ addressed political persecution in the US that its establishment media suppress — supporting what demands exposure and condemnation.

Ignoring state-sponsored criminality against targeted nations, entities and individuals, US regimes falsely accuse other nations of things they had nothing to do with — to shift attention from their own high crimes.

Pretexts used are always “far-fetched and groundless,” MZ stressed.

Evidence is absent because none exists. Internal witch hunts occur with disturbing regularity.

The much ado about nothing Mueller report stands out as a notorious example.

His 19-lawyer team, 40 FBI special agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff spent around $25 million.

They issued 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, over 230 orders for communication records, interviewed about 500 individuals, and made 34 politicized indictments on dubious charges unconnected to his mandate. 

All of the above ended with a whimper, not a bang. 

What never should have been initiated laid an egg, finding no evidence of Russian US election meddling because there was none.

MZ mocked sham proceedings, slamming the so-called January 6 storming of Capitol Hill the same way.

Clear evidence shows what happened was an anti-Trump false flag.

Hooligans involved were bussed in for what was orchestrated by US dark forces well in advance.

No storming occurred, no Trump inspired violence, none by his supporters.

The incident was a US Reichstag fire to falsely blame him and his nonviolent supporters for what they had nothing to do with.

Elements labeled domestic terrorists were used to demonize Trump — while smoothing the way for selected, not elected, Biden/Harris to power.

In the aftermath of what happened, the FBI has been on a police state tear, opening hundreds of criminal cases, issuing hundreds of search warrants and subpoenas. 

Over 230 people were detained, MZ explaining:

They’ve been “subjected to huge pressure, including by taking their relatives and friends in hand and browbeating them into giving the ‘required’ evidence.”

“In addition, (they’re) accus(ing) people who just voiced a different opinion and who have not even formally been charged with anything of spreading fake news and conspiracy theories.” 

“These people lose their jobs. They are banished from social networks,”their accounts blocked.” 

They’re “subjected to public harassment and ostracism.” 

“To say nothing of social networks banning government officials,” including Trump.

All of the above is happening in a country masquerading as a “global beacon of democracy.” 

It’s a totalitarian police state on a fast track toward full-blown tyranny.

“(I)t has become particularly clear that Washington has no moral grounds to infinitely teach other nations good sense, as far as observing human rights and civil liberties is concerned,” MZ justifiably stressed.

Another example of fast-approaching tyranny in the US is removal of about 100 Russian accounts by Twitter.

It’s part of a state-sponsored campaign to silence diverging opinions and dissent, wanting whatever differs from the official falsified narrative suppressed.

Pretexts used by Twitter to obstruct free expression reflect how all police states operate.

MZ called them unacceptable “far-fetched excuses.”

She slammed Twitter’s transformation “from an independent discussion platform into a tool of global digital dictate in the hands of the Western establishment.”

The same holds for Facebook, other social media, and their conventional media counterparts — a collective censoring machine that operates in cahoots with US dark forces.
