The Times repeated her lies. Washington bears full responsibility for Syria's crisis conditions. Assad defends Syrians responsibly.
It's his job. He's obligated to protect his people. Failure would be grossly irresponsible. Times editors didn't say. They point fingers the wrong way. They blame victims for imperial crimes. It's longstanding Times policy.
Its editors claim "(m)any Syrians have fled because of bombings by army troops, still others because of sexual violence."
Implied is that government forces bear full responsibility. They're protectors and defenders. They're not aggressors or rapists.
Syrians welcome them when they arrive for good reason. Without them, things would be far worse.
"Russia and China".enabled Mr. Assad in his brutal war, but (did) little to help his victims."
Both countries drew red lines. They're united against NATO intervention. They're committed against full-scale intervention.
They prioritize resolving Syria's conflict diplomatically. They want Syrians alone to decide who'll govern them.
According to international law, there's no other way. No nation may interfere in the internal affairs of others. None may attack accept in self-defense. They may do so until the Security Council acts. It has final say. Times editors didn't explain.
