Susan Rice: Being Attacked For All Of The Wrong Reasons By Sean Fenley

20 November, 2012 — Countercurrents.org

Susan Rice is, unequivocally, irascible, mean-spirited and a very disagreeable person. This has not previously been an impediment, though, to one becoming a US Secretary of State. We can probably all recall the fiendish relish that Hillary Clinton took in the illicit and barbarian slaughter of Col. Muammar Qaddafi. Seemingly possessed and gleefully uttering, “We came we saw he died!” Died at the hands of thuggish Salafi “democratic” ruffians, that were being resolutely backed by the NATO vehemency to overthrow the ostensible “mad dog of the Middle East”.

NATO Proxies Turkey and Saudi Arabia Move to War Footing on Eve of Syrian ‘Peace Summit’ By Finian Cunningham

28 June, 2012 — Global Research

The NATO-backed covert aggression against Syria could be reaching a tipping point for all-out war involving state forces. That should be no surprise. For the past 16 months, NATO and its regional proxies have been steadily increasing the violence and turmoil inside and outside Syria, while the Western corporate-controlled media maintain the ridiculous fiction that the bloody chaos is largely due to the government forces of President Bashar Al Assad cracking down on “peaceful protesters”.

WESTERN PSY-OPS AGAINST SYRIA: When Mrs Assad’s “Shopping” Becomes a “Crime Against Humanity” By Finian Cunningham

27 March 2012 — Global Research

Michelle Obama, the fashion style icon wife of US President Obama, is to have travel sanctions imposed on her by member countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, including Russia, China and SCO associate state Iran.

Mrs Obama’s annual six-figure budget for designer clothes and accessories is seen as an affront to moral decency at a time when her husband is overseeing foreign wars of aggression, mass murder in several territories using aerial drones, and ordering the assassination of individuals such as nuclear scientists in Iran.

Syria and the media: “Activists say…” By William Bowles

17 February 2012

Every time I read a BBC news piece about events in Syria it invariably includes the following phrase (emphasized):

“Troops are shelling intensively parts of the Syrian city of Homs, activists say, a day after the UN General Assembly called for an end to violence.” — ‘Syrian city shelled after UN vote’, BBC News, 17 February 2012

Aleppo betrayed by attacks that are foreign to its nature By Charles Glass

13 February 2012 — Aleppo betrayed by attacks that are foreign to its nature – The National

Aleppo is a town of eminent consequence, and in all ages its fame has flown high. The kings who have sought its hand in marriage are many, and it place in our soul is dear. — Ibn Jubayr, Arab-Andalusian traveller, June 1184

Last week’s suicide bombings that killed at least 28 people in Aleppo are drawing Syria‘s second city into a conflict that it had struggled to avoid for the past year. President Bashar Al Assad blamed Al Qaeda terrorists, while the Syrian opposition accused the regime. American officials, despite Washington’s hostility to Mr Al Assad and the recent closure of the US embassy in Damascus, told McClatchey Newspapers correspondent Jonathan Landay they thought Mr Al Assad was right.
