It is interesting to note the contrast between the media’s coverage of Mosul and that of Aleppo. Mosul is in the hands of ISIS. Aleppo was in the hands of al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra and various US-supported “moderate” rebels, such as the Zenki group who proudly published a gruesome video of themselves beheading a 12-year-old boy.
Everyday we hear horror stories about what happens in Aleppo, yet the exact same thing is happening in Mosul and in Yemen, but we never hear about it. Because it is the US and its allies doing the bombing in Mosul and Yemen. We are supposed to shut down our brains and believe that US-sponsored bombs are “good” bombs, bringing freedom to the civilians they decimate, while Russian-sponsored bombs are “bad” bombs.
Aleppo is a massive failure for the Obama administration (and Qatar, Saudi and UAE). They simply cannot accept that Russia out-played them and managed to defeat their sponsored terrorists, similar to how they cannot accept their defeat in the US elections, resorting to making up bogus stories about Russian hacking.
I am not a fan of Bashar, but for the good of the people of Syria, I hope he wins. If he loses, the US will turn Syria into another US success story (Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya), with daily car-bombings and terrorists taking over entire cities. Bashar will at least create enough peace and safety for people to go on with their lives without fearing death every day.
[Note that by posting this video I’m not saying everything she says is true. But I wholeheartedly agree with her main point, that the US narrative regarding Syria is fiction.]
