The misinformation and flat out lies being circulated as truth in regards to what is currently taking place inside the city of Aleppo, is just one example of how blatantly the vast majority of mainstream media will sell knowingly false information as verified fact. Only in the world of American media is Syria considered a civil war.
Aleppo has been unceasingly painted by the corporate media as a humanitarian crisis, wherein Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is apparently waging war against his own people and indiscriminately using chemical weapons on civilians. Yet, this is categorically untrue and has actually been verified, many times. Anyone coming out of the area tells quite a contrasting story from what western media is trying to create. Yet, the lie continues.
This should also shed light on the ongoing “fake news” agenda that is clogging up almost every mainstream station, and how a group that still to this day is attempting to claim such an overt lie about Aleppo, can point the finger at anyone else with a straight face. But that’s just it, integrity no longer plays into their decision making process. This specific job has been cultivated over the decades to draw in just the right type of morally ambiguous person that can easily be manipulated to tow the establishment line, regardless of those pesky facts always getting in the way of the grand plan. Much of the control positions, such as police officers or politicians, have been similarly cultivated in order to entice just this type of person. This does not mean that all are bad or morally ambiguous, more so that it is very difficult for one of high moral standards and integrity to make it in such a career path, and will likely be pushed out from the beginning, lest they adjust accordingly. Which is why their is a massive shift underway from mainstream media to alternative sources.
Just about the only quasi-mainstream source that seems to be actively pointing out the lies of his larger mainstream counterparts, is Ben Swann, and he has over the years certainly proven himself to be on the side of the people by taking some stances on major issues that would never be seen on any other mainstream channel. In his most recent video he breaks down the situation on Aleppo and highlights the lies being told by mainstream media, and three facts that you aren’t being told.
Fact Number One:
The Free Syrian Army(moderate rebels) no longer exists. They were disbanded and gave all their weapons to the al-Nusra front/al-Qaeda.
By late 2015, the largest group battling Assad became the Islamic State. The Syrian government is battling ISIS and al-Qaeda, not rebels, regardless of what the corporate media is trying to sell. As Ben states,
“These are provable facts, omitted by our own government, and for some reason most media refuses to even mention the names ISIS or al-Qaeda when talking about Aleppo, and instead only refer to these fighters as rebels.”
Fact Number Two:
There is not an attack on civilians being conducted by the Syrian government.
The ongoing claim is that hospitals in eastern Aleppo have been the primary target of the the Syrian government’s bombardment since the campaign for the eastern part of Aleppo began. Yet, what virtually no corporate media is reporting, is that according to reports of journalists on the ground, there are only three hospitals in eastern Aleppo, and they are almost exclusively inhabited by al-Qaeda and ISIS fighters.
Fact Number Three:
The white helmets are not at all what they claim to be, and are receiving millions in funding from the US, the UK, Japan, Demark, the Netherlands and Germany. They were recently exposed for creating fake propaganda videos for western media, and are completely unknown by the Syrians they claim to be helping.
Journalist Vanessa Beeley, who has ripped off the mask of the White Helmets numerous times before and who may be the person most responsible for preventing the terrorist support group from receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, describes the real Syria Civil Defense in the following way:
To our knowledge and according to the Head Quarters of the REAL Syria Civil Defence in Damascus, the White Helmets are NOT a member of the ICDO(International Civil Defence Organisation). The REAL Syria White Helmets have received awards for their participation in the training of other member states in USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) and for their contributions to the Civil Defence community, prior to the NATO dirty war on Syria that began in earnest, in 2011.
When Syrian civilians are at risk, injured, or buried under the rubble of homes, schools and hospitals destroyed by terrorist mortar showers, it’s not Le Mesurier’s White Helmets who rush to their aid – it’s the REAL Syria Civil Defence, a real civic organization who, up until the publication of this article, have never been mentioned by any western media outlets.
These are just three of the facts being actively and intentionally distorted to maintain the perception of Aleppo that has been falsely created and fed to the American people; and this is just about Aleppo. Imagine what other lies are being told about stories that are just as serious with lives hanging in the balance.
