Western Sponsored Aleppo Mass Murder
Washington bears full responsibility for Aleppo massacre and others like it.
by Stephen Lendman
For nearly two years, Washington waged terror war on Syria. Death squad proxies are used. They recruited largely from regional countries.
Some come from Europe. America supplies small numbers. They invaded Syria. They want Assad toppled, so they say. They're manipulated to believe he must go. They want Islamic extremism replacing secular governance.
They're reigning terror on defenseless people to achieve it. Assad loyalists are targeted. Scores die daily. No one's sure how many. For sure it's many thousands.
On January 16, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "Foreign and Expatriates Ministry Calls on UN and UNSC Member States to Condemn Massacre against Aleppo University Students and Terrorist Crimes in Syria."
Students, employees, and others seeking refuge were slaughtered or injured. At least 87 died. Another 150 or more were injured.
On January 15, terrorist rockets struck. A university dormitory was targeted. It was used as a shelter. Terrorists bombarded it.
They've committed numerous other similar attacks and atrocities throughout the country. SANA said 2,362 schools were destroyed. Many innocent children and teachers were killed.
Washington and supportive Security Council members don't condemn terrorism. Nor does the UN Human Rights Council. It said nothing about Monday's attack.
It blames Assad for death squad crimes. It's done it throughout the conflict. It's complicit in Washington's war on Syria.
SANA called on Security Council and other UN member states to condemn terrorist crimes. It wants Aleppo martyrs recognized. It wants guilty parties held responsible.
There's "no excuse for states which are practicing double standards and supporting terrorism in Syria while they condemn it" elsewhere.
Hypocrisy defines Washington's agenda. Complicit NATO partners and regional allies share guilt. Conflict shows no signs of ending.
Union of Syrian Students President Dr. Ammar Sa'ati expressed condolences for victims and surviving family members. He condemned the cowardly attack.
