NYT Calls Aleppo’s Liberation “Chaos and Desperation”
by Stephen Lendman
The Times supports all US wars of aggression, suppressing its responsibility for genocidal mass slaughter - proving America represents unparalleled pure evil, humanity’s greatest threat.
The Times is a lying machine, supporting what demands condemnation, along with all other media scoundrels, substituting rubbish for real news, information and analysis.
For the first time in over four years, tens of thousands of Aleppo residents are now free from captivity as human shields by US-supported terrorists - no longer fearing their brutality.
The Times disgracefully lied, claiming “hundreds…are missing, citing fabricated accounts of “arrests” and “summary killings,” by government forces, adding:
Some residents “said rebels (sic) had helped them cross the front lines or warned them not to go at certain times or in certain places because of the danger.”
“As government forces continued to advance on Friday, panic was growing among those still trapped inside, who either could not make their way out or were afraid to enter government territory…(O)thers have moved deeper into the rebel-held district under intense bombardment.”
What utter rubbish! Thousands of Eastern Aleppo residents are now free from captivity. Safe in government controlled areas, they expressed gratitude to their liberators, thankful to be alive.
According to Russia’s reconciliation center, “people are escaping along the humanitarian corridors in an ongoing flow to the part of the city, controlled by the Syrian government” where they’re given hot food and medical treatment as needed.
US-supported terrorists were warned. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said “(d)o not try undertaking whatever provocations or even firing on civilians using the humanitarian corridors for the escape.”
“We address those, who for the recent several months announced readiness to send over to Aleppo their humanitarian assistance (but never did): to representatives of the US, Great Britain, France, Canada, the European Union and international organizations. It is time to verify your intentions” so far unfulfilled.
Russia, Syria and Iran alone are providing vital humanitarian aid. America, EU nations and the UN provide it only to terrorists.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov blasted EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini’s Big Lie, claiming only its member states are providing humanitarian aid to Syrian civilians.
Ryabkov expressed disgust over her “outrageous twisting of facts…ignoring what Russia has been doing for a long time.”
According to Russia’s Foreign Ministry, “unlike other international players, (Moscow has) been actively supplying thousands of tons of humanitarian aid to various regions across Syria, including the liberated areas in eastern Aleppo, at the risk of Russian military lives.”
“If (Mogherini) means providing assistance to terrorists and extremists, then we don’t participate in this, indeed.”
Days earlier, UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman lied, outrageously saying Syria, Russia and their allies block aid from reaching civilians in need.
Britain provides nothing. Nothing from France, Germany and other EU states for Syrians, just aid for US-supported terrorists brutalizing and massacring them.
The Times: “In areas the government has recently retaken, (it) handed out Syrian…flags.” What utter contempt for long-suffering eastern Aleppo residents now free from the scourge of US-supported terrorists.
