Will this Photo prevent the Attack on Syria? Who are we Supporting in Syria?
By Freeman / globalresearch.ca

Something remarkable has happened. The New York Times, the most influential newspaper in the United States, has published a photo on its front page on Thursday that may be able to prevent the attack on Syria.

The photo shows how seven soldiers of the Syrian Army, who were caught by the terrorists, are kneeling on the ground and have their hands tied to the back while they are waiting for their execution.

All soldiers have terrible wounds on their backs and arms. Behind them on the photo are exactly the guys, which the United States supports and supplies with weapons.

After the leader Abdul Samad Issa read out a poem, all prisoners are killed by headshots. The dead bodies were then thrown into a hole.

The New York Times (NYT) shows the video of this massacre online on its website.

Why do I say it could prevent the war?

Because of the situation that a similar photo of an execution from the time of the Vietnam War caused a change of mind for the majority of the American people, which then heralded the end of the war.

At that time, the Americans understood that they were supporting a band of murderers, the South Vietnamese regime. Just as it could be the situation now.

When the New York Times (NYT) publishes a heinous crime of “allies” of the United States in the fight against Syria’s President al-Assad on its front page and thus, makes it “official,” then nobody is anymore able to ignore it.

Then it is undisputed and raises the question in the United States of “who do we actually support here (in Syria)? Mass murderers?”

In addition, many good people are asking the question: “Why do we want to attack the Syrian government with a military strike, when they are fighting against these murderous gangs?”

The Americans realize now that they are on the wrong side of this conflict. This could increase the resistance against the war on Syria further in the future.

One is able to show the newspaper to every supporter of the war against Syria and to then shame him now that this topic has landed in the mainstream.

It could also trigger the idea that, when the so-called “Syrian rebels” are able to carry out such gruesome criminal acts, then they could also be ruthless enough to fire poison gas on the civilian population, so that Obama’s red line is crossed, and they are able to blame Syria’s President Assad for the incident and start the US-led war against Syria.

Here is one of the most famous images in the world, which became an icon of the anti-war movement. It shows how the police chief of South Vietnam, Nguyen Ngoc Loan, has gunned down (headshot) a suspected Vietcong (“Charlie”) on the streets of Saigon with his Smith & Wesson (Model 38) on February 1, 1968.

At that time the outrage over the actions by the “ally” in America was so great, that the mood has turned against the war. We are only able to hope that this now also happens in terms of Syria.

Anyway, the US Senators and Congressmen had to listen to a lot of protests by the American population in the Town Hall meetings of the past few days.

This is what the media in the United States report and they show, for example, how the greatest warmonger US Secretary of State John Kerry was massively insulted by his constituents yesterday.

He said afterwards, “I understand you.”

Editor's Note: It should be clarified that there are many factions involved in the Syrian uprising, and although it is clear the US should not be supporting the militant forces described above, there is a legitimate, non-violent resistance movement to the Assad regime that deserves our support.
