The NYT Big Lie About US Combating ISIS

In his important book titled “The Dirty War on Syria: Washington, Regime Change and Resistance,” Tim Anderson explained America’s war “relies on a level of mass disinformation not seen in living memory.”

ISIS is the pretext for endless war without mercy, Assad the target, regime change the objective, wanting pro-Western puppet governance replacing Syrian sovereign independence.

All wars are based on disinformation and Big Lies. Truth-telling exposes the fabricated pretexts for waging them. Syria is Obama’s war, now Trump’s.

It isn’t civil as falsely claimed. Syria was invaded by ISIS and other terrorist death squads, recruited from scores of countries, supported by Washington and its rogue allies – the country raped by US imperial lawlessness.

Terrorist groups can’t exist without foreign support. Their tanks, rockets and other heavy weapons don’t materialize out of thin air. They’re supplied by America, NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Instead of explaining what’s going on, media suppress hard truths – The NYT the worst offender because of its global reach and influence on other media reporting.

The Times maintains the myth of US forces combating ISIS – instead of explaining the terrorist group and likeminded ones are US creations.

The Times:

“American military gains in Syria have far outpaced any diplomacy toward a political settlement of the Syrian civil war.”

Fact: So-called “American military gains” involve attempting to separate northern and southern Syria from Damascus control – wanting the country balkanized, its sovereignty destroyed if the scheme works, along with looting its resources in parts of the country.

Fact: Washington rejects diplomatic efforts toward conflict resolution, wanting endless war in pursuit of its objectives.

Fact: Ongoing war is US-orchestrated naked aggression. There’s nothing civil about it.

The Times:

Obama’s “instructions to the Pentagon (were to) “(d)efeat” ISIS.

Fact: No such instructions were given. US-led so-called coalition warplanes serve as the air force for terrorist groups in Syria – these fighters used as imperial foot soldiers to try toppling Assad.

The Times:

ISIS “is now reeling in Syria…battered by” US and coalition airstrikes. It’s “lost” most of the territory it once controlled.

Fact: ISIS may indeed be “reeling” – no thanks to Washington and its rogue allies, supporting the scourge they claim to oppose.

Fact: All gains against the terror group and others in Syria are from efforts by government and allied forces, along with vital Russian airpower.

Liberating the country requires their continued commitment defeat the terrorist scourge Washington and its rogue allies support – no simple task.
