Cowardly Terrorists Murder Syrian Civilians
Western-recruited death squads responsible for murders and atrocities - not Assad.

Aleppo murders are the latest example. Western-recruited death squads ruthlessly target civilians. They're armed and directed to do so. They're merciless cowards.
Innocent men, women and children die. Murdering children, raping women, and beheading men are their specialities. So are other atrocities. Since winter 2011, many thousands of Syrians were slaughtered. Dozens more succumb daily.
That's what terrorism is all about. Imperialism operates that way. Barbarism best describes it. It's longstanding US practice in all its direct and proxy wars. Respect for human life isn't America's long suit. It never was.
Ravaging one country after another is official policy. It's been longstanding since WW II. Post-9/11, it intensified. Peace, stability, and human rights aren't in America's vocabulary. The very notions are abhorrent.
Across the region, millions of corpses attest to Washington's viciousness. Aleppo is the latest example. Fighting raged there on and off for weeks. It continues.
On October 3, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "People's Assembly Condemns Aleppo Bombings and Terrorists-backing States."
People's Assembly Speaker, Mohammad Jihad al- Laham, opened the session, saying:
"Aleppo woke up today on a heinous crime, as horrible terrorist bombings targeted innocent civilians in fulfillment of the terrorists' scheme who do not have any humane values."
"We condemn these terrorist bombings and the conspiring countries which are backing the terrorists."
He hopes God will have mercy on the souls of martyrs. He wished quick recovery to those injured and expressed solace for families of those killed.
Most Syrians understand America's conspiracy against their country. They know and say so. Law Professor Daoud Khairallah told Russia Today that 95% of militants in Syria are foreigners.
SANA said 34 died, 122 were injured, and both totals may rise. Other victims are trapped under rubble.
