Keeping the Syrian Pot Boiling
Western-backed killer gang violence continues.
by Stephen Lendman
The ink's barely dry on the March 21 Security Council Presidential Statement . It called on both sides "to bring an immediate end to all violence" and engage in conflict resolution diplomacy.
Nonetheless, Western-backed killer gangs keep attacking civilians and Syrian forces. According to Reuters :
Clashes continue. At least 40 died. The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) isn't sure who's responsible but implies Assad. A pro-Western front group, its spurious accounts lack credibility.
Independent observers called past reports propaganda, not truth and full disclosure. Critics denounce its pro-Western anti-Assad bias. In fact, two SOHR sites each claim to be the original.
The initial one's in Arabic with a Facebook English version. The splinter group's in English. Each calls the other an impostor. Information they report differs. Featuring falsified claims and bogus casualty counts, both lack credibility.
