NATO-backed “pro-democracy” activists commit brutal atrocities
Paul Joseph Watson - Infowars.com - July 4, 2012
Despite the fact that parties on both sides of the conflict in Syria have been responsible for violence, the international NATO-aligned media has hyped often dubious accusations of Assad-sponsored massacres while virtually ignoring massacres, beheadings and other acts of brutality carried out by rebel insurgents.
Whereas the establishment media, particularly the likes of CNN and the London Guardian, have prostrated themselves as 24-hour rolling propaganda platforms for anonymous “activists” with Twitter accounts, showcasing unverified You Tube clips of alleged atrocities, equally disturbing footage of rebels committing acts of savagery have been buried.
In addition, it has come to light that many of the alleged “massacre” videos and other clips showing Syrians allegedly killed or injured by Assad’s forces that were broadcast globally by the mainstream media have been staged.
It’s time for some balance.
No one can deny that Bashar Al-Assad’s regime has been responsible for violence. But in failing to equally acknowledge the fact that NATO-backed rebels have also carried out innumerable atrocities is not only dishonest, it represents a deliberate effort by the press to manipulate the narrative of unfolding events in Syria as a one-sided war crime rather than the truth – which is the fact that Syria is in a state of civil war.
In throwing their military might behind Syrian rebels, in addition to foreign terrorists affiliated with Al-Qaeda, NATO powers are empowering a minority of extremist Wahabi thugs who are anti-freedom, anti-Christian, anti-Shia, anti-Sunni and who will stop at nothing to entrench their ideologically fanatical power base.
In greasing the skids for a Libya-style NATO military assault, the media has portrayed the rebels as freedom-loving democratic activists who are honorable victims of bloodshed. In reality, as the videos in this link ( http://www.infowars.com/shocking-videos-reveal-truth-behind-syrian-freedom-fighters/) illustrate, nothing could be further from the truth.
These video clips only scratch the surface when it comes to documenting the fact that Syrian rebels and their insurgent allies from abroad are about as far removed from their corporate media-generated persona as one could possibly imagine.
Far from representing the noble, religiously and culturally inclusive ideal of democratic freedom, by their very own actions and statements the rebels represent little more than a gang of bloodthirsty, extremist, mercenary thugs which western powers and mainstream media outlets – if their claim to support freedom in the middle east is to have any credibility – have no business in supporting.
