Syrian Gas Attack a Lie
Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign affairs spokeswoman, says the Syrian gas attack was all a ruse — a lie spread to justify the Western governments, specifically the United States, entering into the conflict. “I understand full well that our side of the story will not reach the Western audience,” she said. “Western diplomats, they will hear it, but for the Western public it will simply be blocked.
Our take: The US media has grown increasingly compromised, surrendering not only to the CIA, but also to other US government censors and diplomats. Still, we’re a little more inclined to believe Western propaganda than Russian propaganda, although either side is no longer very believable or trustworthy.
