”VARFÖR LJÖG NI OM ALEPPO”DEL 1. En svidande vidräkning av Ulf Sandberg om hur medierna förvrängde sanningen om verkligheten bakom interventionskriget mot Syrien

KAMPANJEN – ”VARFÖR LJÖG NI OM ALEPPO” kommer med fler inlägg. Medias totala svek gentemot sitt uppdrag nådde kosmiska proportioner under striderna i Aleppo. Den globala genomslagskraften för lögnerna blev också mycket uppenbar. Folket i västvärlden utsattes återigen för ett ständigt bombardemang av lögner, där samma budskap upprepades och hamrades in. Det var dom goda – mot dom onda. Det var svart mot vitt. Och plötsligt fanns inte de tusentals extrema religiösa fundamentalister som intog Aleppo för fyra år sedan och massavrättade soldater och civila.

Jean Bricmont – Open Letter to “Human Rights Defenders” on Aleppo

For the “human rights defenders” political realism and the consequences of their actions have no importance: what matter to them is to show that they belong to the “camp of Virtue”. You imagine yourselves as being free, while following at each step the indications of the dominant media as to what should be the object of your indignation.
If I had the slightest illusion concerning the lucidity that you may have about the consequences of your actions, I would call them criminal, because of the harm that you do to Europe and to the rest of the world. But since I harbor no such illusion, I will limit myself to call you hypocrites

sana.sy – Zakharova describes US decision to supply armed groups in Syria with arms as hostile move

Moscow considers the US decision to supply the armed groups in Syria with arms to be a hostile move, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, said on Tuesday.
Zakharova was quoted by TASS News Agency as saying “The transferred weapons would quickly end up in the hands of jihadists, and Washington must realize this… Perhaps, they even expect this to happen, since they actually sponsor Jabhat al-Nusra, which is a unit of Al Qaeda. This can hardly be called otherwise than aiding and abetting terrorists.”

stalkerzone.org – Liberated Aleppo Presents Horrific Surprises

The Russian military has found in the districts of Aleppo liberated from militants mass graves with mutilated and disfigured bodies. As the official representative of the Ministry of Defence Major General Igor Konashenkov declared on Monday, the results of an inspection of districts of the city “are capable of shocking many”. “Large-scale burials of many dozens of Syrians, who were subjected to barbaric tortures and punishment have been found. Many have missing body parts, the majority were shot in the head,” said
He suggested that it’s “only the beginning”. Konashenkov emphasized that all facts are carefully documented as the heaviest war crimes of terrorists and will be made maximally public, “so that the European patrons of so-called oppositionists in London and Paris are made to realize who actually are their fosterlings, and realize their responsibility for their atrocities”.
