RUSSIA VETOES WESTERN CONTROL OF AID TO SYRIA
Vince Dhimos answered a question at Quora.
Before I post the Quora Q and A, I need to comment on the absolutely slimy coverage of the UN Syrian aid vote. Every Western site I visited on this issue claimed, absolutely falsely, that Russia had voted against aid to Syria. That was a vicious lie! Russia and its friends in the UN proposed introducing aid from 2 points at the border with Turkey. But the West wanted to control the crossing points into the country that it had tried to destroy, and demanded two additional entry points from territories controlled by the West. This is one more important reason you should not get your "news" from sources controlled by the US Establishment. And that includes most European sources as well. This is best explained by this article: https://swprs.org/the-propaganda-multiplier/.
Q: WHY DOES RUSSIA FAIL TO GET UN APPROVAL FOR SYRIA CROSS-BORDER AID DELIVERIES FROM TURKEY?
Vince Dhimos, Editor-in-Chief at New Silk Strategies (2016-present)
For anyone who understands the geopolitical landscape, this is an easy question. Western countries are pushing for 4 different crossing points and without approval by the Syrian government. Russia and its partners want only 2, both passing through Turkey, which is partially aligned with Russia and has been cooperative with Russia for the most part.
The 2 crossing points proposed by the West, that do not pass through Turkey, are controlled by the West, which obstinately continues to impose sanctions that prevent the war ravaged Syrian people from acquiring food staples, energy and medicine. Further, it was the West that wholeheartedly supported the Arab Spring that brought hordes of jihadists to Syria from over 80 countries (as detailed here). Does anyone think the West really wants the Syrians to receive aid? Even as the US steals their oil – as the US president brazenly admits? The same scenario emerged in Venezuela, another country whose people were being starved and deprived of medicine by the sanctions imposed by the US and its allies but then suddenly, in a supposed burst of altruism, the US decided to send aid, and without consulting the legitimately elected government, started illegally crossing the border with trucks full of this “aid.” Imagine a reverse scenario in which the US were embargoed and Americans could not receive food and medicine because a powerful tyrant decided they should pay a heavy price for electing Trump, and then this same tyrant is suddenly overcome by a supposed paroxysm of compassion and tries to send “aid” across the Canadian border. Would the starving Americans, victims of the embargo, be absolutely delighted to receive this aid from their arch-enemy? No. They would say “for crying out loud, why don’t they just lift the embargo and let us buy food and medicine instead of pretending to be humanitarians all of a sudden?” They’d surely suspect the attempted “aid” deliveries were a planned spy mission or perhaps a delivery of guns to America’s internal enemies.
It all boils down to the fact that, with its open and public support for the Arab Spring, the West created and nurtured ISIS, Al-Qaeda and their spin-offs and rebrandings, as I showed at Quora:
Vince Dhimos's answer to Are there any sources for American involvement in the Middle East since 9/11? It’s for a paper.
Now since the West is responsible for all the havoc, in its zeal to please Israel and Saudi Arabia, who wanted to remove Assad from power, and since this same West created unbearable conditions for the Syrian people in their country by introducing, financing and arming these jihadists, and since the latter all but destroyed Syria until 2015, when the Russians finally went in and started restoring order, why in heaven’s name would the Russians allow the West to control entry points into Syria from areas controlled by the West? Of course they wouldn’t and they vetoed the UN proposal to allow this. If the West – and the UN that it controls in this issue – were to allow the Russians, the Syrians and their friends to control the aid delivery, there would now be aid flowing into Syria. Yet Pompeo hypocritically asserts that Russia and its friends in the UN have “blood on their hands” for vetoing the UN resolution to allow the West to control the aid.
The West not only backed the bad guys in Syria, it not only slapped inhuman sanctions on Syria, but it also imposes sanctions on any country that helps rebuild this war torn country.
Why in heaven’s name would Russia and Syria allow these Western criminals (stealing someone’s oil is a crime, folks) to control the aid convoys entering the country?
