An American author says that Washington and its allies have unleashed a merciless war against Syria, Press TV reports.
“Syria was calm and peaceful until Washington unleashed its dogs last year. Daily violence, mass killing and destruction followed. It is the American
way. Media scoundrels support it,” said Stephen Lendman, writer and radio host from Chicago, in an article published on the Press TV Website on Friday.
“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.”
Lendman also stated in his article that Washington “tolerates no governments it doesn’t control. Replacing them with puppet regimes is policy.”
Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil in Syria since March 2011.
The anti-Syria Western regimes have been calling for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down.
“The longer conflict persists, the greater his (Assad) support. Who else can Syrians turn to for help? They want no part of becoming another proWestern vassal state. They know the daily horrors Afghans, Iraqis and Libyans face,” Lendman wrote.
