Syrian Civil War: Part 1: Aleppo Media Narrative
The Syrian Civil War has been in the news for many years, and the rhetoric has just now escalated to a really global reach. In this video I take a look at the current state of the city of Aleppo, Syria, which is under the most armed conflict. In doing so, I present the various narratives of the situation brought forward by the United Nations, the Western mainstream media, Russian and Syrian, as well as independent journalists and news outlets. It is clear that the views presented are split into two narratives:
1. The UN and Western mainstream media present the Russia-backed Syrian Government as the aggressors while present the opposition forces as revolutionaries.
2. The Syrian Government, Russia, as well as independent journalists and media present the Syrian government doing its best to fight off against terrorists that look to overthrow the democratically elected government of Syria.
While I present both narratives objectively, it is clear to me that the second narrative is most aligned with the truth. Also, I go over the claims made by the UN of war crimes by the Syrian government, but it turns out those claims are nothing more than unnamed witnesses and sources. These are serious claims which deserve serious evidence, rather than presented as facts in which the Western established media pushes, almost in a coordinated fashion. This is very similar to the Washington Post article about the CIA stating that Russia "hacked" the United States election, which I covered in my earlier video and I concluded that it was simply propaganda.
A good quote to illustrate these competing narratives is "The first casualty, when war comes, is truth" by United States politician Hiram Johnson, who died eerily on the day the US dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
Stay tuned for Part 2...
