Scant hours after US President Obama showed his boehner* to the world, his moderate death squads fired missiles onto Baghdad and al Aabid Streets, in Damascus, 6 January 2016. That 10 Syrian civilians were martyred, and upwards of 40 were injured, was completely ignored by western media.
On 6 January, however, the media was dutifully encumbered by the onerous task of herding the American populace into their appointed cheering and condemning sections.
The overly cluttered field of presidential candidates brayed along “party lines,” reported by mainstream media, which — as expected — ignored the fact that the field is surfeited with current and probable future war criminals.**
Mutism regarding the exposure of malignant hypocrisy, once again, went unnoticed: The US is the number one exporter of conventional weapons to the world. The US bombs countries around the world with impunity. The US subsidizes guns in the hands of terrorist mercenaries used to destroy other governments.
In February 2015, independent journalist, Eva Bartlett, joined “a US delegation of 6 anti-war activists — including, notably, former Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, as well as former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and long-time anti-war advocate Sara Flounders…in a solidarity visit to Damascus.” Included in that symbolic trip was a visit to Damascus’ largest hospital, University Hospital, “where victims of terrorist rocket and mortar fire were being treated.”
Those individuals whose human decency caused them to be moved by Obama’s sanctimonious weeping, have a moral obligation to read Ms Bartlett’s report on the devastating results to the recipients of the gifts of his moderate rebels.
*John Boehner, former Speaker of the US House of Representatives, was a notorious watershedder.
**The US population ignoring of the bipartisanship of US war criminality, has been one of willful and woeful ignorance.
