Putin v. Obama on Syria
by Stephen Lendman
Judge for yourself who’s right and wrong, whose policies are constructive, whose are destructive, who supports the Syrian people, who mass murders them, who causes human refugee floods fleeing war-torn countries for safe havens.
Putin forthrightly wants global peace and stability. Obama wages endless imperial wars - to benefit monied and rogue political interests exclusively, no matter the cost in human lives, unspeakable misery and loss of fundamental freedoms.
Putin believes nation-state sovereignty is inviolable. No country has the right to meddle in the internal affairs of others - to force them to bend to its will.
Obama intervenes lawlessly against one nation after another. Washington New World Order rules alone matter. Core international laws are obstacles to US hegemonic aims.
Syria is Obama’s war, using ISIS and other imported mercenary terrorist gangs as US foot soldiers, supported by American air power, wanting Syrian sovereignty destroyed, its people enslaved.
Washington’s direct and proxy aggression is called liberation, democracy building. So-called humanitarian intervention is a complete fabrication. So is the phony war on terror.
America wages global wars OF terror on humanity, raging endlessly in multiple theaters and at home against Muslims, people of color, unwanted immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, as well as anyone challenging US hegemonic aims.
Putin responsibly helps Bashar al-Assad defeat the scourge of US-imported Islamic State and other takfiri terrorists - supplying weapons, munitions, technology and humanitarian aid.
Obama bullied Bulgaria, Greece, Iraq and other countries to prohibit Russian aid flights through their airspace to Syria. Thus far, Iraq and Greece refused. So did Iran.
Putin urges forming an international anti-terrorism coalition to defeat ISIS and other takfiri groups - a growing regional spreading threat, a scourge on humanity wherever they’re deployed.
Washington blames Assad for its own criminality. State Department spokesman Admiral John Kirby willfully lied - claiming he’s “the reason ISIL and other terrorist groups have been allowed to fester and grow and sustain themselves inside Syria,” ignoring America’s full responsibility and poll numbers showing over 80% of Syrians believe it.
Syria’s military is the only one fighting ISIS and other terrorists on its territory. US bombing supports them. Claims otherwise are willful lies.
Obama wants Assad denied help to battle a scourge the whole free world opposes. He wants endless mass slaughter and destruction.
He’s against Putin’s proposed international anti-terrorism coalition. It conflicts with his imperial aims. He bears full responsibility for human floods internally and externally displaced. They’re fleeing conflict and terrorist atrocities, Putin explains.
They overwhelmingly support Assad’s struggle to defeat them. So does the whole free world -polar opposite Obama’s destructive agenda, a rage to dominate by brute force. The scourge of terrorism is a US creation. Peace and stability require defeating it.
Assad told journalists Washington and other Western countries are “crying for the refugees with one eye and aiming at them with a machine gun with the second one, because actually those refugees left Syria because of the terrorism, mainly because of the terrorists and because of the killing, and second because of the results of terrorism. When you have terrorism, and you have the destruction of the infrastructure, you won’t have the basic needs of living, so many people leave because of the terrorism and because they want to earn their living somewhere in this world.”
US-led Western countries “support(ed) terrorists since the beginning of the crisis when it said that this was a peaceful uprising, when they said later it’s moderate opposition, and now they say there is terrorism like al-Nusra and ISIS, but because of the Syrian state or the Syrian regime or the Syrian president.”
“So, as long as they follow this propaganda, they will have more refugees. So, it’s not about that Europe didn’t accept them or embrace them as refugees, it’s about not dealing with the cause.”
“If you are worried about them, stop supporting terrorists…This is the core of the whole issue of refugees…We are at war with terrorism…supported by (US-led) foreign powers.”
Obama lied claiming US forces are making progress against ISIS. Last Sunday, special presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/retired general John Allen turned truth on its head telling ABC’s “This Week” America is making “remarkable progress” in defeating it.
US forces have had “real successes,” he claimed. Not according to a September 15 New York Times report headlined “Analysts Detail Claims That Reports on ISIS Were Distorted,” saying:
“A group of intelligence analysts have provided investigators with documents they say show that senior military officers manipulated the conclusions of reports on the war against the Islamic State, according to several government officials, as lawmakers from both parties voiced growing anger that they may have received a distorted picture about the military campaign’s progress.”
One unnamed analyst said “senior intelligence officers are flipping everything on its head.” Fabricated accounts of alleged successes conceal failure to halt ISIS advances.
Washington supports them. They’re US proxy forces for endless war on humanity - targeting all independent governments, heading for eventual nuclear war if not stopped.
