Media scoundrels suppress imperial lawlessness. Western-inflicted violence and bloodshed go unnoticed. Victims are blamed for aggressor crimes. The same dirty game repeats.

Post-9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq were ravaged and destroyed. So was Libya last year. Now it's Syria's turn. Perhaps Iran comes next.

Most Syrians deplore violence. They oppose internal and external elements committing it. They support protective security forces. They represent a vital last line of defense.

Conflict continues without end. On January 1, Press TV headlined "Al-Qaeda, Israel's Trojan horse in Middle East: Iranian MP," saying:

Iranian Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member Mohammad-Hassan Asafari said:

"The Zionist regime has become the largest training base for active terrorists in the Middle East region and the footprint of this sinister regime can be easily traced in recent terrorist operations."

Al Qaeda and like-minded terrorists wage war on Syria. They're closely allied with Washington. They're recruited throughout the region and beyond. 

Israel provides training and intelligence support. A separate Press TV report headlined "US, Israel major players in Syria crisis: Iran cmdr," saying:

"Chairman of Iran's Armed Forces Joint Chiefs of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi says the United States and Israel are major players in the Syrian crisis."

"The number of terrorists in Syria, compared with the people and the popular army of this country, is not high and they are weak."

"However, they have been provided with advanced weapons and shoot people from hiding places, and this is not a coherent and systematic move."

The London Independent discussed the issue. It's report was largely one-sided. It headlined "Foreign fighters fuel the sectarian flames in Syria."

It called the conflict "sectarian." Doing so implies civil war. It covered up a foreign invasion. It cited a duplicitous Human Rights Council International Commission of Inquiry for Syria report.

It claimed Syrian forces "resorted to aerial bombardments, including shelling of hospitals." It called such attacks "disproportionate." It blamed Assad for Western aggression. 

Media scoundrels turn truth on its head. Managed news substitutes for the real thing. Readers and viewers aren't told what they most need to know.
