Arab League Pro-Western Despots - by Stephen Lendman

On November 12, New York Times writer Neil MacFarquhaqar headlined, "Arab League Votes to Suspend Syria Over Crackdown," saying:

<blockquote>"Syria's formal suspension is to start in four days, offering what senior Arab League officials described as a last chance for Mr. Assad to carry out a peace agreement his government had accepted....to halt violence directed toward civilians (and) withdraw all security forces from civilian areas...."</blockquote>

On October 10, a Times editorial headlined, "Enabling Mr. Assad," saying:

<blockquote>"There is a lot of shame to go around after the United Nations Security Council failed last week to pass a resolution condemning Syria's brutal crackdown."</blockquote>

Fact check

Since March, anti-goverment protests began and intensified. Replicating Libya's model, Western backed insurgents stoked violence. Insurrection spread from one city to another.

Trapped between waring sides, civilian casualties keep rising. Hundreds of security forces have been killed. Imported weapons are used against them. Syria's wrongfully blamed for confronting an armed insurgency. Unresolved conflict rages.
