Two days ago, on Tuesday, January 15th, two bombs exploded at the Aleppo University in Syria killing about 80 people. Immediately, without any evidence, the U.S. State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland issued a written statement saying, "The United States is appalled by the Syrian regime's deadly attack yesterday near the University of Aleppo, which reportedly killed more than 80 people and injured more than 150 people."
Apparently, the U.S. State Department took its information from a Facebook post by someone who claimed to be from the university’s own press office, accusing "Syrian Air Force MIG fighter planes of targeting the campus in two 'criminal' missile attacks." Why would the government bomb the university, where there were no demonstrations and while students were taking exams? Any logical analysis would conclude that the bombings were terrorist acts.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who was traveling in Tajikistan in Central Asia, called the claims of Syrian government responsibly in the bombings "blasphemous." He told reporters in Dushanbe, “I saw a report on CNN, which said that Syrian government troops were behind it. Nothing can be more blasphemous.”
The Western press and the Western governments present a completely distorted view of what is happening in Syria. As reported in an earlier article, the major forces behind the rebellion are mercenaries who are trained and armed by Turkey with financial support from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The degree of involvement of the United States is still unclear, but it is obviously supporting the rebels who have committed some horrible atrocities. A number of gruesome YouTube videos have been posted showing cold-blooded execution style killings of government supporters and soldiers who have been captured by these rebels. In fact, evidence exists that Al Qaeda elements are present among the rebels.
The attached video presents a rare Syrian view of what is happening in that country. It is obviously biased, but it is useful to compare it with the usual American media reports about the rebellion in Syria.
