Syria: Tightening the Noose
Washington's war on Syria. It's not a civil war. Saying so is false. It's a foreign invasion.
by Stephen Lendman
Since conflict erupted last year, Washington, other NATO states, and regional allies recruited, armed, funded, trained and directed Syrian insurgents.
Public admissions emerge slowly. Language conceals what's been ongoing all the time. On November 29, CNN said Washington is "weighing whether or not to provide arms to the Syrian opposition."
US Syrian ambassador, Robert Ford, said Obama "never (took) the provision of arms off the table." They've been supplied regularly under it covertly.
On December 9, Los Angeles Times columnist Doyle McManus headlined "A call to arms for Syria's rebels."
Within days, Washington is expected to recognize the illegitimate opposition coalition as the "legitimate representative of the Syrian people." In November, Britain and France announced support.
