Letter: Where are the voices?

The six years long conflict in Syria is not a civil war but actually a British/U.S./NATO and Gulf State assisted war of regime change.

The reporting and analysis from certain political factions and media interests of the Syrian Army and Russian-led coalition forces’ liberation of civilians in the city of Aleppo is grossly disingenuous,  or more frankly stated, are scurrilous lies.

The six years long conflict in Syria is not a civil war but actually a British/U.S./NATO and Gulf State assisted war of regime change.

There is no such entity as moderate rebels or the so-called Free Syrian Army, only terrorists. This is what Syrians and especially the citizens of Aleppo fully understand.

For anybody who wishes to truly direct their deserved disgust and outrage at the real demons in Syria, it is necessary to invest the required intellectual rigor in order to determine the facts.

The Canadian freelance journalist Eva Bartlett and Vanessa Beeley, a journalist from the U.K., have presented powerful and compelling reports on the war and the plight of the Syrian people. Senator Richard Black, R(Va) and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard D(Hi) have continue to campaign for the truth.

Where are the voices of our Canadian elected representatives?

These brave folks’ analysis can be found on YouTube videos and elsewhere in the public domain.
