The Bared Teeth of the Syrian War: Qatar Feels the Brunt By Armine AKOPYAN (Armenia)

20 January 2013 — Oriental Review (Russia)

The war in Syria appears to be increasingly remote-controlled from abroad. Almost all states in the region seem to be involved to varying degrees, with Qatar providing the lion’s share of the funds going to the Free Syrian Army. However, the investment has generated disappointing returns. To avoid its funds from going up in smoke, Qatar has decided to dole them out on the basis of the actions carried out. As a result, the ASL began staging its most spectacular and deadly attacks to the detriment of its real military objectives. Continue reading

Syria: US-Backed Terrorists Mass Murder Unarmed Civilians By Tony Cartalucci

2 November, 2012 — Global Research – Land Destroyer


The Washington Post claims “soldiers” were executed – terrorists in video clearly refer to victims as civilian “shabih.” Victims had no weapons, uniforms, or IDs indicating they were soldiers.

An egregious war crime was reported on by the Washington Post, but deceitfully and purposefully spun and shrugged off. In the Post’s article, “Syrian rebels execute unarmed government soldiers; dozens killed in fighting,” it is first reported:

Syrian rebels executed at least a half-dozen unarmed government soldiers Thursday after attacks on checkpoints near the town of Saraqeb in northwest Syria. Continue reading

Syrian Victims: When Truth Is the First Casualty of War By Ross Ruthenberg

27 March 2012 — Global Research

The Western mainstream media continuously beat the war drums for Libya-like treatment of Syria, using body count statistics to attempt to paint the year-old Syrian conflict as a humanitarian disaster crying out for NATO and its allies to bomb the government’s military forces into submission. Ironically, under the guise of “responsibility to protect”, the NATO powers and their Gulf Arab proxies are supplying weapons, training and logistical support to the armed “opposition” forces.

Bloodbath in Libya embarrassing for National Transitional Council

28 August 2011 —

[Embarrassing? I’ll say so! As I wrote yesterday, the ‘rebels’ have been carrying out the slaughter of Black Libyans, not ‘mercenaries’ in Tripoli as yesterday’s Independent felt free to describe them. No sign of this story on the BBC of course. WB]

The horrors began to emerge, despite careful media manipulation, right after Qaddafi’s compound of Bab al-Aziziya was stormed by rebel fighters. Aside from the expected looting and souvenir hauling by rebel fighters, dead bodies were seen strewn across the vast grassy expanses of the compound. At first, rebel fighters alleged they were killed by government loyalists, however, this statement was negated by a resident of the area. He was told to remain silent by one of the rebels.
