Canada, as the CBC slavishly reports, does not question the US line that President Assad of Syria is a monster "killing his own people," who by implication must be bombed out of power by US/NATO.

Aangirfan explicitly attributes the Houla atrocity to US run death squads: CIA DEATH SQUADS DID HOULA MASSACRE - REPORTS.

"We will do everything we can to prevent Iran from developing a weapon", Panetta said. Once again, it doesn't matter that the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN's nuclear watchdog, plus 17 US intelligence agencies have stressed this is not the case.
