The hypocrisy of US war propaganda

This week marks two years since President Barack Obama initiated the latest US war against Iraq and Syria, launched in the name of combating the Islamic State militia. The American president cast the new military intervention as not only a continuation of the “global war on terrorism,” but also a crusade for human rights, invoking the threat to Iraq’s Yazidi population and insisting that he could not “turn a blind eye” when religious minorities were threatened.

The toll of this supposed humanitarian intervention has grown ever bloodier. According to a report released this week by the monitoring group Airwars to mark the anniversary, more than 4,700 civilian non-combatant fatalities have been reported as a result of the “US-led Coalition’s” air strikes (95 percent of which have been carried out by US warplanes). More innocent Iraqi and Syrian men, women and children have been slaughtered by American bombs in the course of two years than the total number of US soldiers who lost their lives during the eight years of the Iraq war launched by President George W. Bush in 2003.

The USA Is The Responsible !

According to some close observers, the consequent contradictory US stances and statements prove without fail that the USA is the responsible for the ongoing crisis in Syria!  Be it the US Ambassador to the UN, CIA head, Secretary of State, or Obama's statements, all in all they underscore that the USA is using the card of terrorism, terrorist organizations, particularly with dependence on boots in the minds and grudge of anti-Syria forces of evil and darkness, as  means to exert political pressures and oppression against Russia, Iran, Syria and almost against ever voice of reason and independence.

The things and the sinister schemes and plots by Mr. Obama have turned his hair grey, and not what he claimed as exerted efforts to find solution, in fact non-solution- for the crisis in Syria, mainly caused by US affiliates and sponsors of terrorism. Once a breakthrough is achieved against terrorists on the ground, the US flagrantly poke its noses and under different pretexts interfere as to change the defeat of its affiliates on the ground to a postponed defeat and  against all humanity and enlightenment!

The Syrian Army Heroism

Every national occasion has its own niche in the peoples memory and the more sublime it is, the more glory and power it has over the passage of time. On the occasion of the 71st Anniversary of Syrian Arab Army Day, August 1, 2016, the Syria Times On-line has the pleasure to publish some of  the Words delivered by the Late President Hafez AL-Assad on this occasion:

 Dear brothers and sons, 

Officers, NCO`s 

Every national occasion has its own niche in the peoples memory and the more sublime it is, the more glory and power it has over the passage of time. 

The occasion we yearly celebrate on August the first, namely the foundation of the Syrian Arab Army is one of the national occasions we take pride in owing to its prominence and relevance to the national struggle of our people. The formation of our army was the bedrock of our victory achieved by independence and the evacuation of colonialism from our homeland. with such formidable army, I would say that our people should rest assured that we have a national power capable of guarding the border and preserving independence.
