The opposite way — the anti-imperialist viewpoint — of reporting about war and international relations, has been embodied, to cite two prime authentic journalists — NOT propagandists (such as Colvin was) — by Vanessa Beeley, and also by Eva Bartlett. Both of these authentically great reporters have also covered the war in Syria. Here, from them, is this opposite way of interpreting war and international relations:
The White Helmets, the Free Syrian Police, the Local Councils in terrorist held areas of Syria – are all being financed, promoted, equipped and supported by the UK FCO in its campaign to undermine the Syrian state, its people & its leadership. Money that is taken under false pretences through taxation is almost certainly funding terrorism that has undergone various branding, and rebranding schemes in order to conceal this nefarious activity.
These scenes of jubilation and joy will never be shown by the Western media terrorist acolytes as they try to maintain the “bad SAA vs good rebel” narrative that has been utterly exposed as a lie and a hoax from day one of this filthy war against Syria – waged by the U.S, UK, EU and their lackeys in Turkey, Gulf States and co-engineered by Israel.
Syrian Christians have supported President Assad and the Syrian Arab Army from day one alongside all minorities in Syria. The SAA is fighting to protect “religious freedom”, the terrorists monsters would destroy all that represents pluralism and diversity. Which would you support?
After a period of stagnation, progress is now visible on several Syrian fronts – notwithstanding counter-efforts by Western powers and Turkey.
In this article I will specifically address the persecution of Syrian Christians by the extremist, sectarian groups who have been promoted, financed and armed by governments in the West, in particular the UK. I would like to make the strong point that Syrians fiercely defend their secular and diverse culture, that their faith or sect is secondary to their Syrian identity and patriotism.
With the OPCW in Syria, they can’t prove anything. They used, as their primary sources, in many cases, their only sources – the opposition, the anti-Assad opposition [..] they use Al Qaeda as a primary source. They used the White Helmets, the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) which are nothing more than adjuncts of Al Qaeda. They operate under the umbrella of Al Qaeda, the protection of Al Qaeda, they take their orders from Al Qaeda. This is not the kind of source that a credible investigatory body relies upon when making decisions about what occurred inside Syria [..] they (OPCW) eliminate bias, they go straight in and they treat these Al Qaeda witnesses as if they were credible sources, they are not”
