Major Media Scoundrels Attack Assad
On March 18, Washington Post deputy page editor Jackson Diehl headlined, "Why the US should intervene in Syria," saying:
Notorious warmongering Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham support Washington intervention. Their joint March 6 statement said:
"The Syrian people are outmatched. They are outgunned. They are confronting a regime whose disregard for human dignity and capacity for sheer savagery is limitless."
"Still they carry on their fight. And they do so on behalf of many of the same universal values we share, and many of the same interests as well....Shame on us if we fail to help them now in their moment of greatest need."
A year ago they called for Libyan intervention for reasons as spurious as now. They're at it again to replicate charnel house conditions in Syria, install a pro-Western regime, remove a key Iranian ally, then call for bombing Tehran and risk general war.
Diehl failed to see the potential consequences of what three notorious rogues support instead of forthrightly opposing them.
On March 22, a Washington Post editorial headlined, "The UN's unworkable plan for Syria," saying:
"....there is virtually no possibility that the new initiative will accomplish" an end of conflict "as the Obama administration should know by now."
