Cowardly Terrorists Murder Syrian Civilians
Western-recruited death squads responsible for murders and atrocities - not Assad.
by Stephen Lendman
Aleppo murders are the latest example. Western-recruited death squads ruthlessly target civilians. They're armed and directed to do so. They're merciless cowards.
Innocent men, women and children die. Murdering children, raping women, and beheading men are their specialities. So are other atrocities. Since winter 2011, many thousands of Syrians were slaughtered. Dozens more succumb daily.
That's what terrorism is all about. Imperialism operates that way. Barbarism best describes it. It's longstanding US practice in all its direct and proxy wars. Respect for human life isn't America's long suit. It never was.
Ravaging one country after another is official policy. It's been longstanding since WW II. Post-9/11, it intensified. Peace, stability, and human rights aren't in America's vocabulary. The very notions are abhorrent.
Across the region, millions of corpses attest to Washington's viciousness. Aleppo is the latest example. Fighting raged there on and off for weeks. It continues.
