NYT Blames Russia for US Sabotaging Talks on Syria

NYT Blames Russia for US Sabotaging Talks on Syria

by Stephen Lendman

Throughout years of conflict, Times reporting has been entirely one-sided, cheerleading US imperial lawlessness, never explaining Obama’s naked aggression against a nonbelligerent country - using ISIS and other terrorists as imperial foot soldiers.

On Tuesday, it highlighted US suspension of Syria talks with Moscow, saying “(t)he United States…accus(ed) the Kremlin of joining with the Syrian Air Force in carrying out a brutal bombing campaign against the besieged city of Aleppo.”

Fact: Syria was invaded. War isn’t civil. Damascus and Moscow fully comply with international law in combating the scourge of US-supported terrorism.

Fact: What The Times suppresses is most important to report. America is the aggressor, Syria and its millions of people imperial victims.

Fact: Washington consistently undermines Russia’s good faith conflict resolution efforts. Its imperial objectives alone matter, even if they threaten world peace and security.

The Times lied claiming US warplanes massacring scores of Syrian soldiers and injuring many others was “accidental.”

It lied blaming Russia and Syria for a humanitarian convoy attack days later heading for Aleppo - carried out by US-supported terrorists.

It lied claiming Russian and Syrian warplanes use terror weapons in bombing areas of Aleppo - held by terrorists, using Syrian civilians as human shields, not explained.

It lied blaming both governments for civilian killings entirely carried out by terrorists - with full support and encouragement by Washington.

Responding to America provocatively suspending talks with Russia, its UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said “(t)here is no alternative to trying to implement a ceasefire” - while rhetorically maintaining the myth (nonexistent) moderate rebels.

With Obama’s tenure nearing an end, US policy seems to be preparing for Russia hating war goddess Hillary’s ascension to power - assuring escalated conflict, not resolution, risking direct confrontation between the world’s dominant nuclear powers.
