Western officials and media scoundrels unanimously blame Assad. No evidence whatever suggests it. Plenty shows killer gang responsibility. It's buried so readers and viewers don't know.

Daraya residents dispute official lies. Testimonies point fingers the right way. Western recruited death squads massacred pro-Assad loyalists. 

The pattern repeats from one incident to another. Evidence is suppressed every time. What's later revealed isn't reported. Truth takes a back seat to propaganda. Assad knows the dirty game and explains it. More on that below.

Pretexts are mounting for US-led NATO intervention. Inflammatory headlines support what responsible journalists condemn. Imagine slaughter levels if conflict becomes full blown and rages for months like in Libya.

Responsible parties, including media scoundrels, never apologize or look back. They're on focus planning and/or supporting more war. One segues to another. Bloodshed, destruction, and unspeakable human suffering define them.

Many parties share guilt. The so-called UN Human Rights Council (HRC) repeatedly blames Assad wrongfully. It's more imperial tool than honest broker. 

On August 15, its latest propaganda piece headlined "Syrian Government forces and anti-Government groups responsible for war crimes: UN Commission of Inquiry (COI)." 

In September 2011, Paulo Pinheiro was appointed COI chairman. His mandate is pro-Western propaganda. His earlier reports bore testimony to his bias and contempt for justice. His latest one stayed on message.

He wrongfully blames Assad for insurgent crimes. Credibility isn't his long suit. Pro-imperial reliability defines him well. 

His latest report said government forces and other loyalist elements committed "crimes against humanity of murder and torture, war crimes and gross violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, including unlawful killing, indiscriminate attacks against civilian populations and acts of sexual violence."

He claimed "violations were committed pursuant to State policy pointing to the involvement at the highest levels of the armed and security forces of the Government."

He added that "international consensus is essential to end the violence (and) build the road towards a political transition process that reflects the legitimate aspirations of all segments of Syrian society"."

Pinheiro lied. His mandate is anti-Assad propaganda. He hasn't disappointed. Media scoundrels regurgitate his misinformation. So do pro-Western HRC officials.

On August 27, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "President al-Assad: The Scheme Directed against the Entire Region Not only Syria".The Syrian People Will Not Allow the Scheme to Pass whatever the Cost."

Washington's war on Syria reflects longstanding policy. It's part of its "greater Middle East" agenda. It's about controlling the entire region's oil, gas and other resources.
