Go and find me one single report in western media condemning Assad’s sadistic human rights…
Caitlin Johnstone

What are you talking about? The Assad family has been in power for 45+ years. There is literally decades of reporting on this.

And this is merely a selection from the first page of Google hits on “assad family crimes.”

And as a secondary point, no, Iraq didn’t “just” happen. It was almost 15 years and two entire administrations ago. Were Jimmy Carter’s policies the same as Nixon’s? Bill Clinton’s and Ronald Reagan’s? George HW Bush’s and Jimmy Carter’s? Absolutely not. As a “journalist,” a little more research would be appropriate.
