The 6 year international US war in Syria has been filled with a host of problems, which I have consistently reported on for much of that time, while taking upon a host of flack, primarily by Americans drowning in propaganda.
As Caitlin Johnstone points out here, the glaring problem with the “evil” Assad narrative who allegedly gassed his own people numerous times:
“…[T]hose hundreds of thousands of displaced Syrians who are returning home are all returning to areas that are securely protected from the bloodthirsty tyrant Bashar al-Assad by the Freedom Fighters and Moderate Rebels who oppose him, right? They’d never willfully return to an area ruled by a sadistic dictator who routinely drops barrel bombs on his own people for no reason and kills children with poison gas, would they?
Well yes, if you believe the things that the western mass media have been saying about Assad, they would. IOM reports that of those displaced Syrians returning home this year, about 400,000 of them were coming home to their city of Aleppo, which was fully recaptured by pro-Assad forces in December.”
