Taxi, speaking of Syria, you're not saying much about this week's current Western fraud on Madaya, Syria. Biafra-starvation type photos that have been making the rounds on social media showing skin and bones Syrians dying of starvation because of the war with Western media in on the campaign to spread this supposedly sad news.
Yesterday 40 UN trucks loaded with help rolled into Madaya and were met by thousands of people from the city's population of 40,000 and each one looked more plump than the other but all claiming to have been surviving on grass for 6 months. They probably believe that if they repeat the lie, they would get extra rations from the UN.
It turned out that the dozens of photos of starving people being shown everywhere were bogus, taken 3 years ago in Irak or elsewhere or simply doctored up like the one of the 8-year old girl from Tyre, Lebanon, in perfect and radiant health that ;learned from her classmates that her photo was on TV and FB as one of the starving kids of Madaya.
Every trick in the book has been used against Syria but this one is really low. CNN journalists are almost crying when reporting on this. It's a big fraud eventhough some of the residents in Madaya are in a bad shape after the 6-month siege of the city by ISIS
Thanks for filling us in on the latest diabolical (and expected!) anti-Bashar/Syria propaganda angle. I saw a couple of headlines on the story and instinctively, I had no interest in it. Some days I’m on news overload and on such days a story needs to throw ‘real’ cold water in my face for me to move on it.
Madaya is under Syrian government siege but it's the Isis/Nusra terrorists inside it that are the reason behind the siege and it is they that are preventing the people from getting out, not the government. The UN is saying that 400 people are in need of urgent medical help but not much is being said about starving people. Absent from western media is that the Syrian government had sent food several months back into Madaya but that the terrorists had seized it and sold it to the townspeople at exorbitant prices. I'm not a fan of the Syrian government but I'm also not a fan of lies being told about it such as the bogus gassing of civilians story which was proven false.
Reportage by RT that describe the bogus photos used to get one's blood boiling
Thank you Walid,
I too have been more likely to believe RT's better truth telling than Al Jazeera’s, for one…i can't believe the lies they are telling. I've given up on watching CNN long ago. At least RT tells us what the others are saying, then rebuts the fraud.
I too don't particularly care for the Assad Regime, but still will struggle to find any other , for the time being , to replace it. Of course Reform should be on the agenda once there is a peaceful agreement.
The total destruction of the totality of the Middle East , as I knew it warts and all , is breaking my heart . So much young potential there just being snuffed out by the hypocrisy and aggression in the name of that most fake of so-called 'democracy and human rights' !
Hi, Bintbiba. The Russians aren't angels either. Even RT has to be carefully screened,. Remember the old days of the USSR and Pravda with its never ending propaganda? I'm guessing that some of those USSR people are still around. Some would say that the RT reporting is influenced by Russia being on the Syrian regime's side in the same way some would say Jazeera reflects the Gulf's view of things so there's no side that's either right or wrong all of the time. Like you, I feel bad for what's happening all over the Middle East but we have to recognize that some of the blame falls on the people. You surely remember the famous quote rightfully or wrongfully attributed to a great lady: "no one can make you feel inferior without your consent." It's an easy out to blame everything on the "dictators".
