La propaganda degli USA scende ogni anno a livelli sempre più infantili, anche se mantiene lo scopo di giustificareun maggiore coinvolgimento militare nella crisi siriana da loro creata. Sempre pronti ad invocare le memorie di Adolf Hitler, dei nazisti e dell'olocausto ad ogni occasione, vanno ora affermando che non solo Bashar
al-Assad controlla imponenti strutture carcerarie dove civili per lo più innocenti sono affamati e torturati ma che abbia messo in funzione forni crematori dove vengono distrutti i corpi delle vittime.
Questo nuovo giro di propaganda si basa su un rapporto smascherato di Amnesty International rilasciato nel febbraio 2017 intitolato “Human Slaughterhouse: Mass Hangings And Extermination At Sednaya Prison, Syria.”
Il rapporto conteneva molto materiale scritto ma naturalmente nessuna vera prova. Il solo indizio contenuto in quelle pagine erano foto satellitari che mostravano un edificio che Amnesty International indicava come carcere. Le foto mostravano la stessa cosa che poteva apparire a qualsiasi americano come una scuola pubblica statunitense.
New Holocaust Claims Against Assad Are Based On Old, Debunked Propaganda
By Brandon Turbeville
As the propaganda coming from Washington regresses to an even more
infantile level each year, so does the danger of that propaganda being
used to justify a greater American military involvement in the Syrian
crisis which Washington itself created. Always ready to invoke the
memories of Adolf Hitler, Nazis, and the Holocaust at every opportunity,
the U.S. State Department is now claiming that not only is Bashar
al-Assad controlling massive prisons where mostly innocent civilians are
starved and tortured, but that he is operating crematoriums where the
bodies of victims are destroyed, thus cheating the moral West out of
having any actual evidence of Assad’s “crimes against humanity.”
This new round of propaganda is based upon the debunked Amnesty International report released in February, 2017, entitled “Human Slaughterhouse: Mass Hangings And Extermination At Sednaya Prison, Syria.”
The report contained great writing but it was totally devoid of actual
evidence. In fact, the only evidence contained in those pages was
satellite photos that showed a building that AM claimed was a prison.
The photos thus showed the same thing that any American could have
provided had they taken a picture of an American public school.
Still, the propaganda report was full of accounts gathered from
“survivors” who themselves had been terrorist fighters or affiliated
with terrorist groups and from other anti-Syrian pro-terrorist NGOs.
This and the satellite photos were all they were able to produce. Now,
however, the U.S. has more to add to the story – crematoriums. With
Americans so seemingly impervious to subtlety, the Washington Post
saw fit to point out the obvious – that the State Department briefing
was “accusations of mass murder and incinerated bodies, evoking the
Interestingly enough, the first time this report was published, it
was on the eve of the Geneva talks, an obvious attempt to muddy the
waters and provide the United States with more leverage in the
negotiations. This time, we are yet again heading into a round of Geneva
talks and the United States yet again has lost leverage in
This little tidbit has not been lost on some Russians. Konstantin
Kosachev, Chairman of the Russian Federation Council’s Committee For
Foreign Affairs (in the Upper House of Parliament), stated “New
‘sensational’ and ‘declassified’ US revelations on the alleged ‘mass
executions’ in Syria and a crematorium at the Sednaya Prison near
Damascus are not very trustworthy.”
“Now, when an absolutely new phase in the Geneva talks (held without
the US) is around the corner, the Americans apparently try to once again
shift attention to the ‘Assad regime,’ undermining the peace process,
wishing this or not,” he added.
The Washington Post,
one of many corporate media outlets to have latched on to the story,
stated that “The Syrian government has constructed and is using a
crematorium at its notorious Sednaya military prison near Damascus to
clandestinely dispose of the bodies of prisoners it continues to execute
inside the facility, the State Department said Monday.”
Assistant Secretary of State, Stuart Jones, stated “What we’re
assessing is that if you have that level of production of mass murder,
then using the crematorium would . . . allow the regime to manage that
number of corpses . . . without evidence.”
“We believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover
up the extent of mass murders taking place in Sednaya prison,” he added.
As for the State Department’s evidence, we are, once again, treated
to wholly unconvincing “satellite photos” of alleged construction that
the State Department takes a wild leap to claim is a crematorium. One
need only read the Washington Post’s description of the evidence in order to see just how flimsy it is. Karen DeYoung writes,
The newly released information included a satellite photo
of the snow-covered Sednaya complex with an L-shaped building labeled
“probable crematorium.” Assessment of the facility, Jones said, included
the presence of “the discharge stack, the probable firewall, the
probable air intake — this is in the construction phase — this would be
consistent if they were building a crematorium.” In a photo taken Jan.
15, he said, “we’re look[ing] at snowmelt on the roof that would be
consistent with a crematorium.”
Probable crematorium. Probable firewall. Probable air intake. With
all the use of the word “probable” in the description, I would probably
say the evidence is probably no evidence at all. Indeed, would any
serious intelligence agency base its strategy on such a glaringly
obvious lack of evidence?
Tony Cartalucci of Land Destroyer Report agrees when he writes that,
No responsible intelligence agency would submit final
reports containing the word “probable,” and more importantly, no
responsible state department would cite reports containing the word
“probable” to accuse a foreign government of crimes against humanity.
But an intelligence agency tasked with fabricating a narrative and a
state department tasked with selling it to the international community
would – and as the US State Department has done numerous times in the
past and at great cost in human lives and global stability – Iraq,
Afghanistan, and Libya for example – that is precisely what has happened
. . . . . .
the US State Department and the Washington Post attempt to paint an
elaborate picture of abuse to shock the international community into
condemnation of Syria, what it has really essentially done is resort to
the schoolyard tactic of calling the Syrian government, “Hitler.”
The Amnesty International report was published in February 2017.
Admittedly presenting no actual evidence, and considering the industrial
scale of alleged mass murder and now alleged “incineration” taking
place at the facility, one would assume the largest, most powerful
intelligence network on Earth in human history could present something
months later more substantial than a photograph taken from outer space
labeled, “probable crematorium.”
That the largest, most powerful intelligence network on Earth, in
human history failed to find anything more substantial indicates there
is nothing to find and that instead, the US has deferred once again to
fabricating pretexts for its continued meddling beyond its borders, amid
catastrophic conflicts it itself engineered and is perpetuating, toward
an outcome that suits Washington first and foremost – and especially at
the cost of all others involved.
While spokespeople behind the US State Department’s podiums insist
that the Syrian “slaughterhouse” is being organized and directed from
Damascus, it is clear that just like the dismemberment and destruction
of Iraq and Libya – the Syrian “slaughterhouse” is a project organized
and directed from Washington.
Indeed, that is exactly what this report and the new accusations are.
