Major Media Admit Presence of Foreign Militants in Syria

Syria was invaded by Western recruited death squads.

by Stephen Lendman

Syria's conflict isn't an uprising, revolution or civil war. It's lawless Western aggression. It targets an independent government and its people. Doing so violates fundamental international law.

Washington planned it years ago. It wants puppet leaders installed. It's Afghanistan/Iraq/Libya 2.0. America destroys nations to control and plunder them. 

War on humanity is waged for unchallenged global dominance. Syria is ground zero. Other targeted states come later.

Proxy death squads are used. They're heavily armed, trained and directed. They reign terror on Syrian civilians. They've murdered thousands of noncombatant men, women and children. 

At issue is ravaging and intimidating Syria to submission. Foreign militants show no mercy. Their presence has been well known all along. Media scoundrels now admit it. At the same time, their framing deceives more than explains.

On July 29, The New York Times headlined "As Syrian War Drags On, Jihadists Take Bigger Role," saying:

"....Syrians involved in the armed struggle say it is becoming more radicalized: homegrown Muslim jihadists, as well as small groups of fighters from Al Qaeda, are taking a more prominent role and demanding a say in running the resistance."

Fact check

Militants are largely imported, not homegrown. Many are Al Qaeda affiliated. They're brought in from regional countries. Most Syrian regime opponents deplore violence. They want reforms, not war.

The Times said more recently "larger, more organized and better armed Syrian militant(s push) an agenda based on jihad."

At the same time, it claimed "no significant presence of foreign combatants of any stripe in Syria...." It cited an unnamed "activist" saying around 1,000 of 50,000 fighters involved are foreigners. It added that many of them aren't "jihadists."

It tiptoed toward admitting that what Assad said all long is true. It suggested that "Salafist groups" and other Islamic radicals "now receive most foreign financing."
