The US, France, the United Kingdom and the Ukraine blocked a United Nations move to condemn a jihadist attack on the Russian embassay in Damascus. This ought to be headline news. Yet the corporate media are completely silent.
The actions of the diplomats of the blocking countries and the corporate media black out of the news clearly reveals their support for the jihadists. The particular group of head chopping medieval barbarians who were responsible for the attack is al Nusra, the Syrian branch of al Qaeda. The fact that the US, France, the United Kingdom and the Ukraine support these Islamic terrorists ought to be a scandal. This support ought to be the subject of outrage in the news media.
The notion that the blocking of the move to condemn the jihadi attack is not newsworthy is utterly absurd. Imagine the reverse scenario. Imagine a jihadi rocket attack on a US embassy. The US seeks a condemnation of the attack from the UN and Russia blocked the move. The corporate media howls of outrage would be heard all across the world. Yet when the US and its vassal states block a condemnation of a jihadi attack on a Russian diplomatic mission, the corporate media completely ignore it, preferring instead to prattle on about some allegedly transphobic conversation someone overheard in an airport.
