Five Lies Invented to Spin UN Report on Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack By Tony Cartalucci

18 September 2013 — Global Research

As predicted days before the UN’s Syrian chemical weapons report was made public, the West has begun spinning the findings to bolster their faltering narrative regarding alleged chemical weapon attacks on August 21, 2013 in eastern Damascus, Syria. The goal of course, is to continue demonizing the Syrian government while simultaneously sabotaging a recent Syrian-Russian deal to have Syria’s chemical weapon stockpiles verified and disarmed by independent observers.

Chemicals Seep Through the Cracks in Western-led Axis Against Syria By Finian CUNNINGHAM

24 August 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

A recurring pattern throughout the Syrian crisis is the coincidence of massacres suspiciously at times when there is a shift in the political backdrop. This is important to bear in mind when assessing reports this week of an alleged chemical weapon massacre near Damascus where some reports put the death toll at over 1,100. The Syrian government has vehemently denied responsibility for the incident and has even questioned whether such weapons were actually used.

US-Backed Death Squads Massacre Hundreds of Syrian Kurds By Stephen Lendman

9 August 2013 — Global Research


Western leaders are silent. The mainstream media ignore what demands headlines. Cold-blooded murder doesn’t matter. It’s too insignificant to report. Managed news misinformation substitutes.

Syria is America’s war. It was planned years ago. Death squads were recruited. Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and other terrorists are Washington’s shock troops.

“Progressive” Mainstream Media Supports the Destabilization and Balkanization of Syria By Phil Greaves

25 July 2013 — Global Research

Since the onset of the Syrian crisis, Martin Chulov of the Guardian has continuously been one of the most prominent “journalists” whose coverage, to put kindly, has been skewed beyond any recognition of objective journalism. His narratives have systematically relied on sectarian overtones and cherry picked “activist” quotes from such bastions of objectivity as the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Chulov has gone to great to lengths to portray the conflict in simplistic and sectarian terms: “Assad the Alawite, versus the Sunni majority.”

Qatar: US Proxy in America’s Terror War in Syria By Phil Greaves

1 July 2013 — Global Research

A recent report in the New York Times (NYT) claims, through trusted “sources”, that Qatar began weapons shipments to opposition militants in Syria at the same time they “increased” support for Al Qaeda linked militants fighting Colonel Gaddafi in Libya in 2011. Gaddafi was ousted (murdered) in October 2011; one must assume that any “increase” in Qatari efforts to arm the militants in Libya were delivered long in advance of Gaddafi’s ouster, meaning the synonymous shipments to “rebels” in Syria also commenced well before October 2011.
