Good News: Washington Frozen Out of Syria Peace Plan

"As the US mainstream media obsessed last week about Russia's supposed “hacking” of the US elections and President Obama’s final round of Russia sanctions in response, something very important was taking place under the media radar. As a result of a meeting between foreign ministers of Russia, Iran, and Turkey last month, a ceasefire in Syria has been worked out and is being implemented. So far it appears to be holding, and after nearly six years of horrible warfare the people of Syria are finally facing the possibility of rebuilding their lives." [...]

"The fact is, it is often US involvement in “solving” these crises that actually perpetuates them. Consider the 60-plus year state of war between North and South Korea. Has US intervention done anything to solve the problem? How about our decades of meddling in the Israel-Palestine dispute? Are we any closer to peace between the Israelis and Palestinians despite the billions we have spent bribing and interfering?" Ron Paul.

This is highly relevant for all of us, as the propaganda that concerns me, which I just saw on Australia’s SBS World News bulletin, came from the UK’s State Broadcaster the BBC.

As it happened, I was just composing a letter to SBS, to complain about their totally one-sided presentation of current events in Syria, following last night’s ‘report’ about the fight in Wadi Barada. SBS version was basically the same as Al Jazeera, almost suggesting that the Syrian army and Hezbollah had bombed the Ain al Fijeh spring in order to put the citizens of Damascus under duress.

As we know, Al Jazeera has done more than suggest that this is the case, talking about the ‘rebel defenders’ of Wadi Barada seeking to save ‘our people in Damascus’ from the water shortage, once the SAA stopped attacking them.

But now I have to launch a different attack on SBS.
Initially, in a very short report, it was stated that ‘the UN has managed to get a convoy of aid into East Aleppo to help 20,000 people in need... then there were photos of kids in the street etc, and drone footage of bombed out buildings, and mention of a million people in need.

Needless to say almost, SBS barely mentioned the 80 – 100,000 people who were liberated from East Aleppo and given aid in the West, both food and medical when it happened, nor have there been any reports showing the situation in East Aleppo now and residents returning that gave a proper picture. In fact Aleppo has basically been ignored as of no further value.

Later on in tonight’s bulletin however, came the problem BBC report, already broadcast in the UK. This was from Quentin Somerville, and featured David Nott’s work in Idlib hospitals operating on ‘civilians wounded by the Russian bombing of East Aleppo’. In particular there was a young girl who had some shrapnel ‘from military hardware’, removed, but who had multiple fractures and had to be taken ‘alone’ to a bigger hospital in Turkey.

So there we have it. The only worthy ‘Syrians’ in the eyes of the West are those supporting the terrorists, whether in political or humanitarian terms.

But SBS has a charter; to provide balance and a range of opinion, not favouring any particular perspective. It’s time to hold their feet to the fire...

This is a short version of the report, focusing on Nott, who ‘cannot forget this girl’.

I also struggle with injured children I cannot forget, such as those described to Vanessa by the Syrian Civil Defence, who had been blown to bits by an exploding gas bottle. I also struggle to forget the children of Ballata, whose drugged or lifeless bodies were used to make the Ghouta ‘snuff videos’.
If Nott lay awake at night, it wasn’t because of the lies he has told to help HM government further their strategic agenda in Syria.
