SNIPERS OF SYRIA
Sky is now reporting that Syria is under constant fire from Syrian government snipers.
How do they know the snipers are Syrian government?
Snipers in Syria were reported by Webster Tarpley when he was in Syria last year. But they weren't government snipers. They were masked snipers dressed in black. The pictures Sky showed were of a man in uniform without a mask. Tarpley said the Syrians he spoke to wanted the Syrian military on the roofs to stop the snipers. The use of anonymous sniping is documented in John Pilger's The War on Democracy. In a coup against Chavez in Venezuela a few years ago the (privately owned) media showed civilians under fire from snipers and alleged the snipers were from the Venezuelan military. It was later shown the snipers were from the Venezuelan military but were part of the coup, i.e. defectors, deserters, traitors. So is that same tactic being used in Syria now? Hell, yes!
I would thoroughly recommend watching Pilger's The War on Democracy. It shows how the USA was involved in the revolutions in Latin America, from Venezuela to Chile.
All I can say is they are demented sick torturing murdering fascists. And they want the same for Syria; torture, executions, economic shock therapy, poverty, fascism.
And Russia Today has today questioned the use of the aerial photographs of heavy military equipment we were shown last week. We were told it showed the Syrian military preparing to invade Homs and slaughter the civilians there. It was also alleged that gas masks were being distributed in preparation for the use of chemical warfare agents. As yet no such invasion and slaughter has been reported.
On the other hand it has been reported that a Syrian General was assassinated outside his house in Damascus, that al Qaeda in Iraq has joined the fight with the Syrian rebs and that the alleged leader of al Qaeda Ayman al-Zawahiri has issued a call to overthrow the Syrian government.
It's a jungle out there. Whether you like it or not, you are engaged in an information war. What appears to be one thing is usually something completely different.
