Busted! US Mainstream Media Ends Up Supporting Daesh in Syria

The New York Times’ recent opinion editorial has gone even so far as to suggest that Washington should treat Daesh in Syria “the same way” the US “encouraged the mujahedeen fighters to bleed Russia in Afghanistan.”

Believe it or not, after unfounded accusations of chemical weapons’ use in Khan Sheikhoun by Bashar al-Assad the US mainstream media has ended up with supporting Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.

On April 12, The New York Times published an op-ed piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas L. Friedman entitled “Why Is Trump Fighting ISIS in Syria?”

“Why should our goal right now be to defeat the Islamic State [Daesh] in Syria?” Friedman asked.

As if Daesh had not conducted a series of genocidal terror attacks in the Middle East and beyond, the journalist argued that the real goal of the terrorist group is “to defeat Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria — plus its Russian, Iranian and Hezbollah allies — and to defeat the pro-Iranian Shiite regime in Iraq.”
However, back in February 2017 CNN highlighted that since declaring its “caliphate” in June 2014, Daesh has already gone global conducting and inspiring 143 attacks in 29 countries around the world. At least eight of the assaults were conducted on American soil by attackers who pledged allegiance to the terrorist group.

It appears that it doesn’t embarrass Friedman.

“We could simply back off fighting territorial ISIS [Daesh] in Syria and make it entirely a problem for Iran, Russia, Hezbollah and Assad. After all, they’re the ones overextended in Syria, not us,” the journalist argues.
