Death Squad Atrocities in Syria

Washington recruited mercenaries ravage Syria.

by Stephen Lendman

Since early 2011, Washington waged proxy war on Syria. Daily it continues down and dirty. 

Targeting civilians is policy. So are atrocities grave enough to make some despots blush.

Syria's conflict isn't an uprising, revolution or civil war. It's naked Western aggression. Syria's been invaded. A struggle for survival continues. 

Washington planned regime change years ago. Western recruited death squads ravage the country. Strategy usually involves war.

Daily crimes of war and against humanity are committed. Pro-Assad loyalists are terrorized, tortured, brutalized, dismembered, and murdered. World leaders turn a blind eye. Assad is wrongfully blamed for defending his people responsibly.

Washington bears full responsibility for destroying another country. Rare mainstream reports tell it straight. Daily propaganda drowns it out. Occasional honest journalism reveals what's otherwise suppressed and ignored.

Even The New York Times said Syria's conflict is "radicalized....Salafists" and other Islamic groups are involved. Falsely it claimed they're homegrown. They're largely imported from regional countries.

Most Syrians deplore violence. They want peace, not war. Assad is their last line of defense. Without him they're at the mercy of unrestrained cutthroat killers. Washington uses them strategically to ravage countries. Humanitarian intervention is turned on its head.

Various reports say or suggest Al Qaeda fighters play an active role in Syria. The New York Times suggested it. So did the Washington Post, Time Magazine, CBS News, Reuters and Al Jazeera, among others.

Last winter, Hillary Clinton admitted Al Qaeda's presence in Syria. She told BBC news about "a very dangerous set of actors in the region, Al Qaeda, Hamas, and those who are on our terrorist list....supporting (the Syrian) opposition...."

She omitted saying Washington recruits, funds, arms, trains and directs them. BBC didn't ask. An Arab League observer mission report admitted insurgent atrocities against civilians and government forces. 

Media scoundrels ignored it. Nothing is said about independent journalists doing their job. They provide accurate on the ground reports. It's not what imperial Washington wants known. Truth and full disclosure are suppressed.

Rare exceptions are noteworthy. Last March, Der Spiegel discussed the "Homs burial brigade." An insurgent "executioner" said he and comrades "kill in the name of the Syrian revolution. They leave torture (to) the so-called interrogation brigade...."
