Media reports are scandalously one-sided. Assad's forces are accused of massacres committed by Western recruited death squads. Other accusations include summary executions, and sexually assaulting detainees.
In mid-June, ABC News claimed government forces sexually tortured men, women and children. Corroborating proof was obsent. Sources lacking credibility were cited.
Gaddafi faced similar accusations. Charges levied were later proved false. It was too late to matter.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay made numerous false accusations. She lost all integrity. She sold out to imperial Washington for whatever benefits she gets.
She turns a blind eye to Western slaughter. She points fingers the wrong way. So does UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Top Western and Arab League officials are no different. They spread lies.
They want blood. Before they're done they'll have ours unless stopped. The threat of global war is real. Weapons used may be horrific. They include nuclear, chemical and biological ones.
They've been used before. They'll be again in greater regional war.
The battle for Aleppo continues. Syria's SANA state media is repeatedly hacked and shut down. At issue is silencing truth. On July 27, it was operating. For how long isn't known.
