Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
A typical news article written by western MSM typically starts out:
On a stretch of road in some desolate place somewhere, cited by some guy over here doing some ambigous thing like this etc. Oh contemporary poetry!
And that’s exactly how this NYT article below starts out!
On a stretch of road in northern Syria, a missile screamed from the sky and obliterated a car, killing an Islamist militant and leaving a wreck of twisted metal in an olive grove.
These are the statements by President Putin after holding a joint briefing with President Tayyip Erdogan. Peace seems to be underway.
“As for the prospect (of the settlement in Syria), we must say frankly that the situation remains complicated. There are a alot of uncertainties; a lot of contradictions in the region and in the country itself – in Syria.
Therefore, I want to express cautious optimism that by joining efforts with other solid players, including the US, we will be able to effectively contribute to the strengthening of the ceasefire regime and, on its basis, to move towards a full-fledged political settlement.”
“For peace and calm to remain in the region and the rebuilding of Syria to begin, the principle of the territorial integrity of states must be respected, and in this sense the restoration of the territorial integrity of Syria is -in our view- a paramount condition for a full-fledged settlement in this country.”
Very interesting. There’s no better time for peace than now is what I always like to say. If we read into what Putin said above, it’s very clear that peace is what Russia, Turkey, Iran and Syria are working towards. I’m quite sure that Trump will be briefed by his advisors on Russia and Turkey’s joint briefing. That a positive outlook from my perspective.
Meanwhile, the NYT article that I referenced above is calling for sympathy for ISIS….
But he acknowledged that he speaks with members of Syria’s Islamist factions, including Al Qaeda, to provide Western audiences with a window into their views.
He speaks to Alqueda and yet he’s not in jail on terrorist charges…
Too often, he said, the West dismisses Islamist fighters as “terrorists” without understanding what motivates them, just as Islamists fail to understand the United States. That has locked the two sides in an endless, “lose-lose” battle, he said, which he believes can be solved only through dialogue.
Somehow we “fail to understand terrorists”
“You get up to brush your teeth and a fight kicks off,” he said. “That’s normal.”
He wants us to accept that “It’s normal to be buddy buddy with ISIS”
“Wooooo, apples!” Mr. Abdul Kareem said.
Why does the NYT so badly want to normalize terrorism? Did they not learn from the beheading of journalists such as Sotloff? or Foley? Or the Pulse Nightclub? Bataclan theatre?
Readers, we should always be weary of what comes out from the NYT, otherwise we’ll never get out of this state of delusion.
