The New York Times by jphilipg
US-Imperialist-wars-promoting New York Times' latest "all-the-truth-that-is-fit-to-print" about Syria is titled:
By Hania Mourtada, Hwaida Saad and Michael Gordon, 10/31/2012"
"BEIRUT, Lebanon -- The Syrian Air Force escalated its bombing campaign against the rebellion on Wednesday, activists reported, as the United States signaled growing impatience with the failure of the Syrian opposition-in-exile to form a cohesive leadership and said it would support a more robust and organized movement to oust President Bashar al-Assad."
"Activists reported, activists said." [?]
The NY Times, along with the rest of the US investor-owned media cartel, consistently cites unnamed pro-US sources, pro-US individuals and organizations in reporting Syrian government troops firing on unarmed peaceful demonstrators, and only occasionally reports, with disdain and as insignificant, news releases of the now well demonized Syrian government.
"... news that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had proposed a newly revamped coalition of anti-Assad groups to supplant the Syrian National Council, the largely ineffective political opposition based outside the country that includes aging figures who have not been inside Syria for decades. She said the new coalition should include anti-Assad fighters but exclude the Islamist extremist elements that have joined the battle to topple Mr. Assad."
"Exclude Islamic extremist elements" - [?]
Implies that she, Sec. of Defense Panetta, the CIA, along with British M16, the French Secret Service (France or Vichy France occupied Syria for three decades), Israeli, Turkish and Saudi government agencies, with NATO and allied Qatar providing financing and and coaching for the rebellion long filled with non-Syrian fighters, have not been involved in hiring Islamic extremists (read al Qaeda groups)?
"Mrs. Clinton, who has played a prominent role in promoting the Syrian opposition with nonmilitary aid, " - [?]
After sixty-three years of what Martin Luther King Jr. called 'atrocity wars, bombings, invasions, occupations, covert overthrows of elected governments and funding of civil disturbances and civil wars in third world nations all meant to maintain unjust predatory investments,' who in their right mind is going to believe that the aid Secretary of State Clinton has been promoting those attacking the Syrian government with heavy weapons, is "nonmilitary" aid?
The Times continues, that Mrs. Clinton, "did not object to the participation of the Syrian National Council in a newly organized anti-Assad coalition, which she hoped to advance at a meeting next week in Doha, Qatar. But Mrs. Clinton said "this cannot be an opposition represented by people who have many good attributes, but in many instances have not been inside Syria for 20, 30 or 40 years."
The Times article informs us that Mrs. Clinton shall decide what who can or cannot represent the Syrian people at next week's meeting in Doha, Qatar. - [?]
Again, "activists warned" such and such. - [?]
The Times, from selective horses' mouth gives a continuing picture of the Syrian government killing its own people, even though the Times has been forced to concede various times that most Syrians support their government and that the large Christian population is deadly afraid of the intentions of the groups attacking government forces.
'... said Ahmad Kadour, a spokesman for the rebels in the area, speaking via Skype,' "It's very cold, there is no heating and the most essential nutritional supplies have completely stopped." - [?]
What this quote implies is that it is the government's fault for not surrendering.
Which side is "shelling at "random" need not be explained. The Times has been building its case against the government of Syria, a Syria, which for Times publishers is much too independent of Western imperialism and economic control, as was Libya and is Iran, over the last twenty months of undocumented reporting, often in openly scurrilous wording.
Further on, the reader learns from "the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a rebel organization that tracks the conflict from Britain," of the cruel activities of the Syrian air force as it defends Syria from the international investment community and NY Times backed insurrection. [?]
