UN propaganda on Syria

Eva Bartlett is one of the few journalists whose reporting on Syria is actually based on sources on the ground. Her latest article in The Duran outlines the double standards and disinformation of the United Nations in respect of the conflict in Syria.

To anyone who has been paying attention to the proxy war in Syria, Ms Bartlett's revelations will not come as a surprise. However, to anyone who takes at face value the news reporting of the BBC, CNN, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and the rest of the corporate media her revelations will come as a shocking indictment of, not just the UN, but the whole of the western political media elite.

Ms Bartlett's article is detailed and based on years' of work covering this proxy war. It includes references to many of the false stories the corporate media have pushed so assiduously and references to  many actual stories the corporate media have equally strenuously been silent on.

Bartlett is especially clear on the fact that the political media elite are determined to hide the fact that they are supporting jihadists. This is of course the scandalous truth at the heart of the US and its allies regime change operation in Syria: the US and its allies are funding, training, arming, providing diplomatic support and propagandising for their jihadi proxies in Syria.

A major tool of this propaganda is the White Helmets, a jihadist organisation which is funded by the US, the UK and others. The group makes videos of themselves supposedly rescuing the victims of the Syrian Arab Army. These videos are presented as though they were impartial news reporting by the corporate media and used as "evidence" by politicians to justify increasing military action against Syria.

The current concern for the civilians of east Ghouta is in fact nothing more than a disinformation campaign designed to protect the jihadists of al Nusra and Jaysh al-Islam and justify the continued illegal presence of the US and its allies in Syria. It is a propaganda campaign designed to prolong the US and its allies illegal regime change operation, which has already cost hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions. The west's political media elite are guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
