Media blackout on Syria, Yemen to boost Democrats

    The media’s duplicity in achieving a certain political outcome in the US is becoming obvious after a media blackout on Syria and Yemen. Potential voters are not supposed to know how belligerent the Democratic administration has been acting.

    The terrorists in east-Aleppo, Syria are encircled and besieged. As the Syrian army and Russian air force chip away their territorial hold, it is only a matter of time until they are defeated analysts say.

    Most of the fighters in the besieged area are associated with al-Qaeda and they are several thousand strong.

    Reports appeared in Reuters, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, confirming that a meeting would take place at “staff level” on Wednesday 5th October 2016 to discuss US military options to present to the President.

    The military option which appeared to be the most strongly favoured was covert military airstrikes on Syrian army bases but those risked being shot down by Russian air defence with advanced S-400 and S-300MV Antey-2500 anti aircraft missiles.

    On Thursday 6th October 2016, two days after the Russian warning and directly following the staff meeting, the US announced that all plans for military action in Syria had been called off.

    But the Western media is neither reporting on the dire situation that anti-Assad fighters, their “rebels” are now facing nor that the US has publicly backed down over its plans to attack Syria after receiving a Russian warning.

    Instead it continues to advocate military action, and anyone would be forgiven for thinking that last week witnessed the most dangerous moment of the post-Cold War era.

    And while the US publicly disclosed that it was considering military action in Syria against the Russian military, but called it off following a Russian warning, the media was having none of it. The latest events have gone almost completely unreported.

    After a supposedly “secret” strike was publicly announced to scare the Syrians and the Russians into calling off their offensive against jihadis occupying eastern Aleppo, the Western media blackout is clearly aimed at not exposing the risks of the dangerous strategy it had been so recklessly advocating.

    The jihadis have killed many of the people they “liberated” in Syria while others have fled, also to Europe. But the tide has turned. The now besieged “rebel” held areas in east-Aleppo are shrinking every day.

    Meanwhile the US attacked Yemen by firing cruise missiles against old Yemeni radar stations. This, allegedly, was in response to four missiles fired on two days against a US destroyer, the USSMason at the Yemeni coast. The US Navy said the missiles fell short.

    The US has been in an alliance with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other countries in bombing Yemen for 18 month now, another conflict which goes largely unreported in the mainstream.
