U.S. Says Russia Bombed Convoy Even If It Didn’t

United States of America and RussiaBy Brandon Turbeville

Throughout the entirety of the Syrian crisis, Western media outlets have misrepresented facts and presented outright lies to their audiences regarding virtually every aspect of the war but, particularly when it comes to specific occurrences used to gin up support for greater Western intervention in Syria, these outlets kick it up a notch, launching flurries of disinformation and misinformation designed to leave imprints of false narratives in the minds of half-attentive audiences.

With the recent bombing of an aid convoy in Urm al-Kubra near Aleppo, the Western media (as well as the governments it speaks for) is conflating the convoy that was attacked with a convoy that never actually entered Syria and which appears to have been attacked by America’s rebels. Now, rogue generals within the U.S. military are declaring that the Russians are responsible for the attack despite having no evidence for their claims. In addition, these generals and the Secretary of Defense are saying that, even if the Russians didn’t drop the bombs, the Russians are guilty of attacking the convoy.

Seriously, they actually said that.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford, lobbed the first nonsensical claim to the Senate Armed Services Committee when he stated that, “There is no doubt in my mind that the Russians are responsible, we just don’t know whose aircraft dropped the bombs.”

Really? How do you know the Russians bombed a convoy if you admittedly don’t know who dropped the bombs?

Dunford even stated “I don’t have the facts.”

It’s good to know that military policy is decided without facts and that determinations are made regardless of them, isn’t it? Dunford’s statement was essentially “We want to blame the Russians and, regardless of who bombed this convoy, we will blame the Russians. Fuck the facts.”

Yet Secretary of Defense Ashton “Ash” Carter (appropriately named “Ash” since that will be all that is left of the world by the time the U.S. Empire is finished provoking every country in the world including nuclear powers) was not to be outdone by Dunford.

“[The] Russians are responsible for this strike whether they conducted it or not because they associated themselves with the Syrian regime,” he said.

Now, that’s an interesting point. Let’s say for the sake of argument that the Syrian “regime” was “killing its own people,” “bombing civilians,” and “torturing” Syrian civilians as the U.S. government claims it is. To be clear, there is no evidence of any of this but, for the sake of argument, let’s say the alternate universe of the Western corporate media and the State Department is reality for a second. If the Russians are then responsible for the behavior of the Syrian government, wouldn’t the United States be responsible for the behavior of the “rebels” because the U.S. is associating itself with them?

Indeed, by the logic of Ashton Carter (an oxymoronic statement to say the least), the United States is responsible for untold executions, implementation of violent Sharia law, genocide, rape, child molestation, beheadings, torture, and, of course, cannibalism. Ironically, whether we follow the logic of Ashton Carter or not, the end result is the same – the United States is indeed responsible for all of these crimes and more in Syria.

The Russians responded with a slight jab at the U.S. government with Igor Konashenkov stating:

Unlike the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Armed Forces, we do have the ‘facts’, that is, data of objective control of the aerial situation in Aleppo on Sept. 19. And these facts unequivocally confirm the presence of an American unmanned fighting air vehicle Predator, launched from the Incirlik air base, in the area of the convoy’s passing by Urum al-Kubra.

Unfortunately, Konashenkov must be unaware that the facts don’t matter to the United States government or to the Western corporate media.

If facts mattered, the fact that there is no evidence of Russian or Syrian or any aerial bombardment of the Syrian Red Crescent convoy would be adequately reported. Indeed, evidence that the bombing was an attack against a completely different convoy than what the American media has painted as the actual victim and the fact that the Western-backed terrorists were the most likely culprits would be discussed all over the airwaves right now.

But, of course, if the facts actually mattered, America’s “moderate” rebels would have never been labeled “moderate,” “peaceful,” of “democratic.” Nor would America have armed “rebels” in the first place. Or invaded Libya. Or Iraq. Or Afghanistan. Unfortunately, however, facts and logic are an endangered species in America these days.

    It’s kind of like how in America, they blame white people for everything.

      Non-sequitur with racist undertones?

  • blue579

    Sounds like an episode of an old dinosaur sitcom, the Honeymooners, The Odd Couple, or Schultz from Hogan Heroes “I know nothing!!” To be fair to the US military dunces, they said Russia was responsible because it was allegedly Russian aircraft that was directly overhead when the convoy was hit, only used by Russia and Syria, and since Russia is supposedly monitoring and coordinating with the Syrians they are said to be overseeing their actions. It’s always the plebs at the bottom of the pyramid who pay the big price. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/044f1398a64d81bb5f99f3f6f6918d2c728d7cb9925a47dfb716cb3b8e054f08.jpg

    Not like the US hasn’t lied and lied some more – Saddam has nukes BS is a good starting point. They lost all credibility when they invaded a sovereign nation under false pretenses and murdered thousands. God bless America ? I am so sure.

  • hvaiallverden

    Did you see the ughh…. “belingcat” I think His name on the net, about the “profs” of Russian Bombing, the so called “room” where an so called Missile went thru.

    That article and the comments to it just confirms several aspects of this PR-war propaganda from the mornic UssAs petty idiots, where the fakering is so obvious I laughed, and nobody could tell anyone what makes this “prof” so fake.
    I can in an second charf up atleast 10 points where the physics dont match at all, no fire for once (look at the carboard boxes in the same room where an missile went thrue and “detonated” in that room) and so on, that is so bad faking that I cant understand that this “cat” is taken seriously at all, only in an envirioment where people are even dumber is That possible, we see the scam in an instant.
    This is even worse scam than the famous faking of the so called Gass attack.
    And the ThermoBaric Helfire missile whom wacked the convoy, is also confirmed 100% by the MSM them selfs all tho they tried to fake, yet another video to show something different that whats happened.

    hrmf

    peace

      I agree with you too and noticed on a lot of these videos where supposedly bombs or barrel bombs and there is no fire but heaps of bent iron and bricks and people are being brought out of collapsed buildings and their clothes are cleaner than mine after lying on a dusty road. Look at the Humanitarian trucks that had tyres burnt but the cages of the trucks were still standing and that was done after bombs were dropped and no craters. I believe that they are all staged for western consumption.

    The US needs to get out of Syria and focus on arresting Ziocon war mongers in the USA and putting them ON TRIAL FOR WAR CRIMES. Plus, if the trials were broadcast LIVE, they would be equal to the Judgment at Nuremberg trials!

  • deplorable

    The no-name potus is nothing, if not a good widdle NWO unholy puppet scum.
    The unholy carefully Kontrolled MSM is the setup punch.

    When PNAC created its infamous document back in the 90’s, the authors never realized how many lies would be necessary to achieve the New American Century.

  • Robbie Depp

    Who cares about genocide and death of innocent civilians? Trump said something mean to a former Miss Universe contestant nearly 20 years ago.

    • dale ruff

      ….and he can’t stop talking about it.

  • desertspeaks

    even if the Russians didn’t drop the bombs, the Russians are guilty of attacking the convoy.??

    Um psychological evaluations all around! forkin psychopaths!

  • qweztionz5

    The American government IS responsible for every atrocity carried out by it’s mercenaries. Plain and simple.
