8 March 2012 — Global Research

The Western governments’ and mainstream media’s narrative of a one-sided humanitarian crisis in Syria is rapidly unwinding to reveal a self-serving deception to justify a re-run of Libya-style NATO conquest. In reality, it is the Western powers and their Israeli and Arab henchmen who are fueling a humanitarian crisis and creating the conditions for all-out war.
