Worst of all, "permanent members of the Security Council, who launched wars under the pretext of combating terrorism, now support terrorism in my country without any regard to the United Nations resolutions that established the regulations and mechanisms for concerted international efforts to fight this scourge away from political polarization and double standards."

Daily slaughter and destruction continue. Historic sites are targeted. They're destroyed or damaged. Western-backed foreign terrorists are responsible. "It is no surprise that the Security Council failed to condemn".terrorist bombings because some of its members are supporting such acts."

He left no doubt which ones he meant. Washington bears most responsibility. Its regional regime change plans are longstanding. It's waging permanent direct and proxy wars to replace independent government with pro-Western puppets.

Permanent war is official US policy. So is state terrorism. Crimes of war, against humanity and genocide follow. Complicit NATO and regional partners are criminally involved. UN officials pointing fingers the wrong way share guilt.

The stench of cold-blooded murder spreads everywhere. Responsible parties run America, key NATO countries, and allied regional states. They're mad dog killers. They're contemptuous of human life and rule of law principles.

They can't wait to kill again. Atrocities are their specialty. Those most vulnerable are targeted. It's the American way. The same goes for rogue NATO allies and complicit regional despots.

International law prohibits foreign interference. Syrians alone may choose who'll govern them. Most abhor violence and condemn it. They support their government's efforts to rout death squad elements.

They're living under nightmarish conditions. No one knows from day to day who'll live or die. No one's safe from merciless death squads. No end of conflict looms.

Press TV's CEO of English language broadcasting, Mohammad Sarafraz , said Syrian militants target journalists reporting truths Western scoundrels want suppressed.

"Threatening and shooting journalists reporting the truth"aims to send this message that they will be shot if they continue reporting the realities on the ground," he said. "This is unprecedented."

Countries arming and directing them bear most responsibility. "It's true that mercenaries that are getting money to come to Syria to fight are responsible for the terrorist acts but countries that are supporting them are even more responsible." 

"Turkey is (at) the forefront of those countries." Washington bears most responsibility. US Special Forces and CIA elements are directly involved.

Last month, Press TV's Maya Naser was murdered in cold blood. At the same time, its Damascus bureau chief Hosein Mortada was shot in the back and wounded. Both reporters were covering Damascus bomb blasts when targeted. 

They and other independent journalists receive frequent death threats. They courageously stay and do their job. Some like Maya pay with their lives. Hosein was flown to Tehran for surgery.

Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan acts provocatively and belligerently. He's Washington's lead aggressor against Syria. He shelters Western death squads on Turkish territory.
