Solidarity in Moscow Against US-Supported Terrorism

Solidarity in Moscow Against US-Supported Terrorism

by Stephen Lendman

Obama and neocons infesting Washington bear full responsibility for Middle East violence, instability, chaos and genocide. Likeminded lunatics in Israel, Britain, other NATO partners and regional rogue states share it.

Putin is the preeminent world leader for peace, stability, respect for nation-state sovereignty, multi-world polarity, and inviolability of international law principles.

The alternative is endless wars of aggression leading to a possible global confrontation involving nuclear weapons. The unthinkable is more threatening now than at any time in the post-WW II era - far more serious than during the 1962 missiles of October crisis.

Kennedy later explained he “never had the slightest intention of” attacking or invading Cuba. He wanted all US troops out of Vietnam. He called for ending the Cold War, abolishing nuclear weapons, a “general and complete disarmament,” and Washington no longer using its might to force Pax Americana on other world nations.

His moral stand for peace and stability got him assassinated. Obama is no Jack Kennedy - waging naked aggression against multiple countries throughout his tenure, not a single day of peace or advocacy for it. His rogue leadership risks setting the whole world ablaze.

He’s furious about Assad’s “red carpet welcome” in Moscow, showing Putin’s solidarity with Syria against the scourge of terrorism, as well as directly challenging Washington’s imperial agenda.

Deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz lied, accusing Assad of “us(ing) chemical weapons against his own people, and saying his “red carpet welcome” in Moscow is “at odds with the stated goal by the Russians for a political transition in Syria.”

Fact: US-imported terrorists alone used sarin gas and other chemical weapons against Syrian civilians multiple times.

Fact: US special forces and other Pentagon operatives trained ISIS and other terrorist elements in chemical weapons use.

Fact: Putin, Sergey Lavrov and other Russian officials many times said Syrians alone may decide who’ll lead them, never any foreign power. Interfering in the internal affairs of other countries flagrantly violates core international law.

Numerous times throughout the conflict, Assad said he’d step down if Syrians reject his leadership. In June 2014, they overwhelmingly reelected him in a process independent monitors called open, free and fair.

In an early October interview on Iran’s Khabar TV, he explained “(f)rom the beginning, it was clear to us that there were foreign hands behind terrorism in Syria.”

Washington, Israel and rogue partners want to “perpetuate the process of erosion in Syria and Iraq and later other countries of the region, so that we all remain weak for decades and maybe generations.”

They’re not fighting terrorism. They support it, using it to subjugate other nations, wanting them transformed into vassal states, their resources stolen and people exploited.

Syria’s coalition with Russia, Iran and Iraq “must succeed,” said Assad. “Otherwise, the whole region, not only one or two countries, will be destroyed.”

Russia’s goal is defeating terrorism, preventing its spread into more Middle East countries, Russia, Central Asia and elsewhere, preserving Syrian sovereignty, and challenging the scourge of US imperialism - the greatest threat to world peace and stability.

Assad’s welcome in Moscow was an important show of solidarity against evil forces vital to defeat - Putin at the same time saying: “The decisive word, without any doubt, must belong to the Syrian people,” a strong statement telling Washington and rogue partners to keep hands off.

Both leaders want ongoing conflict resolved politically, Syrians alone deciding who’ll lead them. National sovereignty is inviolable, freedom impossible without it.

The New York Times-led media lying machine can’t tolerate the notion of Russia, Syria and other nations allying against Washington’s hegemonic agenda.

The latest Times Big Lie headlined “Assad Finds Chilly Embrace in Moscow Trip” - belying Putin’s warm hospitality, what the White House called Assad’s “red carpet welcome.”

The usual disreputable Times sources were cited - unnamed “officials, diplomats and (so-called) analysts,” imperial supporters, presenting one-sided views, Big Lies serving their interests, suppressing important hard truths.

Putin and Assad have a common goal - defeating terrorism, preventing its spread, preserving Syrian sovereignty, and challenging Washington’s ruthless imperial agenda - the greatest threat to world peace, a scourge vital to defeat!
