The Times inverts reality. It calls regional states run by despots "liberated" ones. They've "become battlegrounds for Islamic extremists, moderates and secularists, all contending for power and influence over the direction of democratic change."

Except for confessional-style Lebanese democracy, no Arab state tolerates it. Neither does Israel, America and hardcore NATO allies.

The Times blames regional violence on extremist elements beyond US control. They're "eager to exploit unrest for their own purposes."

Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah is a powerful force against Western and Israeli imperialism. The Times calls him a "particularly destructive force." It denounced his ability to get tens of thousands of anti-US/Israeli protesters onto Beirut streets and elsewhere across Lebanon.

It pilloried his support for Assad. It condemned Anti-American regional protesters. It claimed they "reinforced the worst fears of those who see Muslims" as violent extremists.

"In 2009, (Obama) wisely sought rapprochement with Muslims." His Cairo speech "endorsed an approach of mutual respect and promised, that".America never would be at war with Islam."

From day one, Obama waged multiple direct and proxy wars against Muslim countries. Iraq remains occupied. Tens of thousands of US combat troops never left. Daily violence harms innocent civilians.

Afghan war rages. It's America's longest conflict. No end in sight looks near. Obama destroyed Libya. He killed tens of thousands of civilians. Violence continues daily across the country. No one's sure who'll live or die.

He supports the worst of Bahraini despotism, its war on people wanting democratic freedoms, and its persecution of activists supporting it. 

He's waging proxy wars against Somalia, Yemen, and indirectly against Palestine with billions of dollars of Israeli aid and strong support for occupation harshness.

He bears direct responsibility for ravaging Syria. He plans eventual war on Iran. Since January 1991, America killed millions of Middle East, North African, and Central Asians Muslims. Most were non-combatant civilians. Many were children.

How many more millions will die before The New York Times and other media scoundrels acknowledge decades of US mass murder?

Instead, The Times praised Obama's commitment to Middle East democracy. It urged America "to stay engaged in whatever ways it can."

Millions across the region feel otherwise. They want Washington out for good reason. It's a scourge. It menaces people wanting peace and freedom, not war, occupation, genocide and destruction. Don't expect The Times or other media scoundrels to explain.
