There you go again. You're either too young, maybe haven't gotten to that chapter yet or simply choose to ignore Syrian aggression. The
Russian/Soviets have been backing their proxy Syria against Israel for decades...
In the period between Israel’s War of Independence (1948) and the Six Day War (1967), the Syrians constantly harassed Israeli border communities
by firing artillery shells from their dominant positions on the Golan Heights. In October 1966 Israel brought the matter up before the United Nations.
Five nations sponsored a resolution criticizing Syria for its actions but it failed to pass due to a Soviet veto.
The Russians blocked the UN in favor of the Syrians then too......
This would be ideal propaganda do you not even pay attention to the RT propaganda and how the west supports rebels in Syria etc.
What goes around comes around eh?
I sometimes think Brit vs American use of the english language is lost in translation, certainly how we express sarcasm and understand context.
I am well aware and at no point did I say I did not know that Assad is funded by the Russians.
My point, in fact my only point in this thread about the MSM, is that they seemingly ignore or don't take full advantage of this- ie, I cannot ever
recall a time where the MSM reported that Assad was funding and armed by Russia. I'm sure at some point it has been mentioned, but certainly not on
the same level of how RT makes sure the world knows the rebels in Syria are backed by the west.
What I'm saying is not hard to understand, namely I know Assad is backed by Russia, yet I am suprised the MSM does not make a bigger deal of it as RT
does, the parallel being the west supporting the 'rebels'.
