Mr. Stephen Martin,
In today's CounterPunch you describe this as a lie: "Bashir al-Assad
‘barrel bombed’ and deployed chemical weapons against his own people?"
Aren't you aware that the Baathist amen corner party line is that he has
barrel bombed his people? John Wight, a semi-literate propagandist
devoted to Assad, has already explained that barrel bombs are used but
that this is excusable in the same way that the firebombing of Dresden
was excusable during WWII.
I would only add that the Syrian dictator's first name is Bashar, not
Bashir. Your misspelling is excusable. Your denial that barrel bombing
has been used is not.
