"Western media misreport what's happening in Syria and why. Propaganda substitutes for truth and full disclosure.
Syrians are struggling to prevent Western conquest, exploitation, and control. They're fighting for their lives to stay free.At issue isn't whether Assad's government is democratic, despotic or anything in between. Its sovereign independence made it vulnerable.Washington tolerates no governments it doesn't control. Replacing them with puppet regimes is policy. Whether Assad can hold out and prevail isn't known. Most Syrians depend on him.The longer conflict persists, the greater his support. Who else can Syrians turn to for help? They want no part of becoming another pro-Western vassal state. They know the daily horrors Afghans, Iraqis and Libyans face.Syria was calm and peaceful until Washington unleashed its dogs last year. Daily violence, mass killing and destruction followed. It's the American way. Media scoundrels support it.Syria's conflict isn't an uprising, revolution or civil war. These characterizations distort reality. There's nothing civil about what's ongoing. Washington orchestrated everything. Its bloodstained hands control the conflict.At issue is naked Washington-led Western aggression. Key NATO allies and regional partners are involved. Insurgents are Washington proxies. Protracted violence and bloodshed persist." ~ Stephen Lendmaan
First, they blame all these victims on the Assad regime ~ and glorify the rebels.Second, these photographs are truly the stuff of nightmares, beyond graphic, dozen after dozen of very up close and personal shots of destroyed bodies of civilians. These are not for the faint of heart or stomach. Even I could only handle the photos from just Damascus. It was sensory and emotional overload after that. The ones you see posted are from among the least graphic.

According to activists' accounts, government forces retook the Damascus suburb of Daraya from rebel control three days earlier and have since gone on a killing spree. Reports of the death toll range widely from more than 300 to as many as 600.
