The U.S. public is being misled on events in Syria.
For example, AP reporter Dale Gavlak filed a report stating that the rebel group Jubhat el Nusra admitted responsibility for the chemical weapons attack. Saudi Prince Bandar is reported to have provided these weapons to the rebels without instructions, and they set them off by accident.
Furthermore, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Doctors Without Borders reported that they treated 355 people for gas poisoning, not 1,400, as the U.S. media reported. My own source in Turin, Italy, reports that jihadists from 29 countries are fighting against the Assad regime in Syria, including Chechens and Albanians.
Two of these Albanians fled to Italy when they were instructed to kill women and children.
The CBC broadcast a video of a jihadist with a human heart in his mouth. I also saw the same video on YouTube. The U.S. public is also not told that the Syrian Christians are aligned with the Assad regime and they are being brutalized by the Jihadists. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is also attacking Christians.
The U.S. and its Middle East allies want to exterminate Iranian-supported Hezbollah. U.S. missile strikes, however, will kill many more civilians, facilitate Jihad recruitment and cause many more anti-U.S. plots to be hatched.
Six million Syrians have already been displaced, 2 million in neighboring countries. If the United States wants to claim the moral high ground, it must stop lying to its citizens.
The U.S. broadcast media appear to care more about protecting crony capitalism than pursuing the truth. What of Syria after Assad?
Iraq, Egypt and Libya provide clues to the future chaos. As for the USA we used to know, it is being destroyed via the welfare-cum-warfare state.
Lastly,the conflict in Syria may have started as a civil war (conflict among the citizens of one country), but it no longer qualifies as such because many foreigners have been involved.
