Propaganda for Syrian ‘Regime Change’

by Rick Sterling, Consortium News

Neocons and Clintonites have launched a major campaign with the goal of direct U.S. military intervention and aggression against Syria, potentially leading to war with Iran and Russia.

An early indication emerged as soon as it was clear the Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic Party nominee. Following the California primary, The New York Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.”

In early August, Dennis Ross and Andrew Tabler opined in The New York Times about “The Case for (Finally) Bombing Assad”. Dennis Ross is a favorite Clintonite. In her book Hard Choices, Clinton described how she asked Dennis Ross to come to the State Department to “work on Iran and regional issues.”

New York Times regular Nicholas Kristof made his own pitch for war against Syria. According to the self-styled humanitarian, we need “safe zones” as proposed by Clintonite Madeline Albright and retired General James Cartwright. That is risky, Kristof said, but “the risks of doing nothing in Syria are even greater.”

PBS broadcast a story titled “Repeatedly targeted by airstrikes, Syrian doctors feel abandoned.” The story features video from the “White Helmets” along with photos from the reported April bombing of Al Quds Hospital. Currently there is a huge media campaign around the situation in Aleppo. Syrian American doctor Zaher Sahloul, of the Syrian American Medical Society, has been interviewed extensively on mainstream media as well as DemocracyNow with widespread promotion in Truthout and other sites.

  1. Once again, thanks for all your own great essays with sharp research, it’s hard to sort the shiite from the shinola some days, so, extra thanks for the interesting links like this one. I went off from here skipping like a stone from site to site, and as usual, few of them are committing to the NATO remapping plan which honestly cannot be denied by now. But I found a few items to repeat, clarify, or hopefully add to our discussion. The main thrust of the vomitous PR (haven’t we had enough Wag The Dog) is the narrative of the humanitarian petenders, The White Helmits….please everyone stop saying, “You can’t make this stuff up,” they crank it out like flapjacks every day. But these (ugh) “White Helmits” are funded by Syrian-born, British Ayman Asfari, you’ll never guess….an oil, gas and energy billionaire….who just cares about the kids, darn it….oh, yeah and no-fly-zones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayman_Asfari This selfless team of do-gooders managed by James Le Mesurier, a former British soldier and private contractor whose company is “based in Dubai” and as we all know Dubai is reknowned for their tireless good works to benifit mankind.
    I am unfamiliar with this site, but there is a good rundown here of the humanitarian fakes and war pimps…. http://dissidentvoice.org/2015/04/seven-steps-of-highly-effective-manipulators/
    Our outsourced mercs (and all-star scum of the Earth) weren’t effective enough for canon-fodder, so now we need US Military personel to be in harm’s way as human shields. I hope I live long enough to see these war profiteers marched off in shackles to their own private Gitmo, especially here in the US where they pretend to represent the will of the American people.

    We all know Assad, Gaddafi, and Milosevic were not above killing to keep their power but they weren’t awarded the Noble Peace Prize on their way to leaving four nations, societies, in bombed-out ruin and claiming “Responsibility To Protect” with the smoke still rising, and wasting several American cities in the process, too, for a reason to be announced later.
    Our outsourced and psycho mercs weren’t effective enough for canon-fodder, so now we need US Military personel to be in harm’s way as human shields. I hope I live long enough to see these war profiteers marched off in shackles to their own private Gitmo, especially here in the US where they have the audacity to say they represent the will of the American people.
