All Anti-Government Forces in Syria Are US-Backed Terrorists

All Anti-Government Forces in Syria Are US-Backed Terrorists

by Stephen Lendman

The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” persists even though none exist. Political opposition in Syria like in most countries shuns violence.

Militants are imported foreign death squads, recruited in scores of countries - supported by Washington and its rogue partners, wanting Syria raped and destroyed, waging endless war for regime change.

Ceasefire is more fantasy than real. Farcical peace talks collapsed. Endless war rages because Washington rejects peaceful conflict resolution permitting Syrians alone to decide who’ll lead them, free from foreign interference.

Obama launched naked aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic in March 2011, using terrorist proxies to do his dirty work, supported by US air power since September 2014.

His successor will continue what he began, no matter who becomes America’s 45th president. Assad is an overwhelmingly popular reformer, not a despot.

Trump calls him “a bad guy.” Sanders supports “overthrow(ing) the brutal dictatorship of Bashar Assad.” Cruz wants all US enemies to “feel our full force and fury.”

As secretary of state, Clinton orchestrated war on Syria, a similar strategy she used to rape and destroy Libya.

Endless conflict rages, civilians harmed most like in all wars. US-backed terrorists continue attacking them.

In identical letters to the Security Council and UN Secretary-General sent Sunday, Syria’s Foreign Ministry demanded condemnation of willful terrorist attacks on civilian neighborhoods in Damascus, its countryside, Aleppo and its surrounding areas.

Targets include residential communities, schools, schools, hospitals and infrastructure. US-backed death squads masquerading as moderate rebels are involved - affiliated with ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

No “moderate armed opposition” exists. Syria and Russia remain committed to keep waging war on terrorism, aiming to eliminate it and restore peace, stability and security.

Washington and its rogue allies have polar opposite objectives. Endless war without mercy against Syrian sovereign independence and its people continues.
