NYT Reinvents Syria’s Liberating Struggle
by Stephen Lendman
Throughout Obama’s genocidal war on Syria, orchestrated by Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, The Times exclusively reported administration and Pentagon propaganda, hard truths suppressed – the same way it covers all major issues, especially geopolitical ones.
Courageous Syrian and allied forces are winning the battle for Aleppo, heading toward liberating it entirely from US-supported terrorists – cutthroat killers media scoundrels like The Times call “rebels.”
They’re death squads imported from scores of countries, responsible for gruesome atrocities, including use of chemical and other banned weapons – taught their use by US and other rogue partner operatives.
As government and allied forces liberate neighborhoods, residents held hostage by terrorists as human shields are freed – grateful to their liberators, given food, medical care and other essentials denied by their captors.
The Times reinvented what’s happening, headlining “Thousands Flee Aleppo, Syria, as Government Forces Advance,” saying:
“Thousands (are) fleeing for their lives…as rebel fighters (sic) lost (ground) to government forces in (eastern) Aleppo…”
Fact: They’re joyfully escaping from captivity to freedom in government-controlled parts of the city.
The Times: “It’s like doomsday, said…an antigovernment activist in eastern Aleppo.”
Fact: The Times invented a new definition of terrorism, calling cutthroat killers “antigovernment activist(s)” – supporting these bloodthirsty monsters instead of denouncing them.
The Times: “The battle of Aleppo has followed a pattern established by the government: Encircle a rebel-held area; bombard it with airstrikes, barrel bombs and artillery; hit not only rebels but medical clinics, schools and other civilian structures; and wait for exhausted residents to run away or make a deal.”
Fact: What despicable rubbish! Syrian forces and allies, notably Russia, are battling against US-supported terrorist invaders.
Fact: Neither Assad, I, or anyone else knows what a supposed “barrel bomb” is. Conventional warfare with heavy weapons is being waged to eliminate a US-supported scourge.
Fact: Government and allied forces target terrorist positions alone, scrupulously avoiding civilian sites – unlike Washington and its rogues partners, considering them legitimate targets, massacring noncombatants by terror-bombing along with slaughter committed by their terrorist foot soldiers.
Fact: Terrorized, tormented and “exhausted residents” welcome liberating government forces on arrival.
The Times: “People in eastern Aleppo said they did not trust the government to keep them safe.”
Fact: False! Desperate to escape to government held areas, US-supported terrorists open fire on anyone trying – until liberated by advancing Syrian and allied forces.
Instead of reporting accurately on years of Obama’s war, The Times and other media scoundrels feature despicable state-sponsored misinformation and Big Lies.
