Syria’s Victory Stuns NATO Enemies

Clearing House" -
Syria’s presidential elections this
week were a resounding success against a
backdrop of 10 years of brutal, relentless
war imposed on the Arab country by the
United States and its NATO partners.
There is no way the Western governments and their
servile corporate media can spin this epic
demonstration of popular defiance to their nefarious
intrigues for regime change in Syria. Hence, the
total silence among Western media about the election
result. That silence is at once hilarious and
damning of Western guilt over the real nature of the
war in Syria.
After a decade-long torment from terrorist
mercenaries deployed covertly by the Western
powers, as well as overt aggression from NATO
military forces illegally attacking the country
and from cruel economic sanctions warfare, the
people of Syria remain defiant and independent.
President Bashar al-Assad was re-elected for a
fourth seven-year term after winning 95 percent
of votes cast. The achievement is stunning. It
completely refutes – indeed makes a mockery of –
the Western narrative depicting Assad as a
Despite all the grueling hardships, the
Syrian people turned out in droves to vote on
Thursday. The turnout was over 78 percent with
more than 14 million votes cast out of an
eligible 18 million electorate.

It was always a foreign war of criminal
aggression. If there was any justice prevailing in
this world, Western politicians by the dozens should
be tried for war crimes.
Before the election this week, the United States,
Britain, France, and other NATO powers
tried to smear the
Syrian democratic will, labeling the ballot as
neither fair nor free.
Well, the sheer numbers of people turning out to
vote and the subsequent scenes of jubilation across
Syria tell another story, one that confounds the
Western propaganda and exposes the criminality of
the NATO powers and their toxic media.
The Syrian nation has refused to bow after years
of NATO-backed terrorism in their country. They have
chosen their president – again.
The same kind of shameful silence in Western
media has been seen numerous times before when the
Syrian army liberated towns and villages from
Western-backed terrorists. When people came out to
greet their Syrian army liberators, the Western
media simply ignored the reality despite having told
their consumers beforehand that the Syrian army and
their Russian allies were committing slaughter
against “rebels” and civilian populations.
Not one Western mainstream media outlet has
followed up to report on how Syrians feel about
being liberated and of having their peaceful lives
restored. That’s because Syrians would praise the
leadership of Assad, the courage of the army, and
the crucial help of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. In
other words, the West’s lies would be demolished by
the truth, and so their media are compelled to
ignore and keep silent. For everyone around the
world who desires justice and peace and the defeat
of imperialism, the victory from Syria’s election is
a glorious day to celebrate. Congratulations are due
to President Assad. But more so to the people of
Syria who showed that it is possible to stand up to
the real tyranny, that of the United States and its
lawless NATO rogue allies who wanted to destroy
Syria in order to install their own puppet regime.
Despite unspeakable barbarities inflicted on the
peace-loving people of Syria, they have remained
steadfast in their unity and determination for
independence, regardless of their different
religions. The NATO ploy of trying to incite a
sectarian war among Syrians failed because they knew
all along who their real enemy was.
willing to see reality, Syria exposes the forces of
evil in this world. The Western lying media tell us
that Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, and so on, are
“bad” and are threatening global peace. The
Americans and their NATO partners lecture and
pontificate about “rules and order”. When it is they
who are caught in the headlights of truth:
they tried to destroy a
country just like they have countless others.
But that country – Syria – just showed its
spectacular strength to overcome the evil designs of
the United States and its minions in NATO.
Lamentably, Syria faces more trials and
challenges from the continuing economic warfare
being waged by US and European sanctions.
Reconstruction from a decade of NATO aggression will
not be easy. But with the help of Russia, China,
Iran, and others, the Syrian people will win
finally. They have just shown their invincible
resilience beyond any doubt.
