New York Times Promotes War on Syria
The NYT is out in front supporting all US imperial wars.
by Stephen Lendman
The Times isn't alone, but its view matters. It has global reach. It's true in articles, editorials, and op-eds.
The Times is out in front supporting US wars and others planned. Concerns aren't raised about constitutional or international law violations. Crimes of war, against humanity, mass slaughter and destruction are non-issues.
Imperial dominance, wealth, power and privilege alone matter. Throughout its history, its record reflects shame and contempt for humanity. Corporate interests are endorsed. So are imperial wars.
Popular concerns get short shrift. Unmet human needs, growing poverty, employment, hunger, homelessness, and despair aren't addressed properly if at all.
US lawlessness gets swept under the rug and ignored. Corruption at the highest government and corporate levels don't matter. Nor do de facto one-party rule, fake elections, homeland repression, and democracy for the select few alone.
