How America Manufactures Phony Evidence to Bash Russia
by Stephen Lendman
US viciousness is unrestrained, a pure evil force threatening world peace. Its imperial agenda gives rogue state terror new meaning, consistently blaming victims for its high crimes, bashing Russia irresponsibly.
Its unrelenting aerial war on terror continues effectively. Washington invents dirty tricks to subvert it, including by manufacturing war crimes in Aleppo – claiming its warplanes bombed two area hospitals when they were no Russian flights in the vicinity.
On Wednesday, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said “at 13:55 Moscow time (10:55 GMT), two American A-10 assault aircraft entered Syrian airspace from Turkey, flew right to the city of Aleppo and bombed targets there” – a mission to blame Russia for its war crimes.
“No Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes in the Aleppo city area yesterday. The nearest target engaged was over 20 kilometers away from the city,” Konashenkov explained, adding:
US warplanes and drones were active over Aleppo on Wednesday. “(W)e did not have enough time to clarify what” targets they bombed. “We will look more carefully” to determine them – for sure ones chosen to accuse Russia of war crimes it didn’t commit.
No evidence indicates any Russian airstrikes on hospitals or other civilian sites throughout its entire Syrian campaign. None!!
America notoriously considers civilians and non-military-related sites legitimate targets in all its wars.
Last October, it deliberately and unaccountably bombed a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Kunduz, Afghanistan hospital on the phony pretext of attacking Taliban fighters – killing dozens of medical staff and patients, injuring many more, destroying the only area facility thousands of Afghans relied on for treatment when ill or injured.
America and its rogue allies “make unfounded accusations against us,” Konashenkov explained, irresponsibly blaming Russia for their high crimes.
Chances for restoring peace and stability to Syria any time soon are virtually nil. America’s wants endless war.
Russia’s intervention so far foiled its aim to transform the nation into another US vassal state – part of Washington’s grand plan to redraw the Middle East map, carving up countries for easier control and exploitation.
Defeating America’s war on humanity is the free world’s most urgent task. Survival depends on it.
