Just in the case of Iraq prior to the 2003 invasion, the Western press is acting with the same degree of political cowardice. They are afraid of writing or covering anything that conflicts with the foreign policies of Western governments. Is is not scandalous that there was not one article detailing to readers what Arab League monitors said about the situation in Syria, especially that the dispatch of the team was a key demand of Western governments? Not one voice of dissent. Not one critical article against the Syrian National Council and the Free Syrian Army.
