Here's a shocker from the reliably party line Boston Glob...
The Media are misleading the public on Syria
Those "good rebel" pouring out of Aleppo? Obama's opposition to Assad? They're Islamaniacal terrorists who tortured, raped, killed or chased out all religious and ethnic minorities. It heartens me that one of our nation's newspapers is finally saying so.
COVERAGE OF the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press. Reporting about carnage in the ancient city of Aleppo is the latest reason why.
For three years, violent militants have run Aleppo. Their rule began with a wave of repression. They posted notices warning residents: “Don’t send your children to school. If you do, we will get the backpack and you will get the coffin.” Then they destroyed factories, hoping that unemployed workers would have no recourse other than to become fighters. They trucked looted machinery to Turkey and sold it.
This month, people in Aleppo have finally seen glimmers of hope. The Syrian army and its allies have been pushing militants out of the city. Last week they reclaimed the main power plant. Regular electricity may soon be restored.
The article also mentions Turkey's role as the Port of Entry for ISIS-bound jihadi wannabes.
Even worst than dithering is lying...
Even worse than lying is going in and belatedly bombing up what you lied about earlier. Yup, Nobel Laureate Barack Obama is bombing Libya. This comes after Hillary Clinton and her band of merry firebugs laughed with glee as terrorists were sodomizing tyrant Gaddafi with rebar and opening the door for the Million Man Muslim March to Europe.
Bush lied, people died, but what can we make of Obama's tangled web? Can any of you OWS Code Stinko types come up with a pithy rhyme for the destruction Obama has caused?
