Syrian Death Squad Invaders Seize UN Peacekeepers
by Stephen Lendman
It's high time UN and other officials admitted who's friend or foe.
At this writing, efforts to secure their release continue. Reports suggest freeing them on Saturday likely.
UN officials hoped to do so Friday. Unsafe conditions and darkness delayed things. So does dealing with rogue killers.
They're not rebels. They're Western-recruited hired guns. They're heavily armed, trained, funded and directed. They're proxy US assassins.
They're death squads. They're cold-blooded killers. They're imported from abroad.
At issue is regime change. Washington wants subservient puppet leadership replacing Assad. Plans are longstanding. They're unchanged.
