The New York Times has not stopped since US strike from publishing articles about how much Syrians love US bombing of Syria

"Syrian Refugees Laud U.S. Strike and, in ‘New Emotion,’ Trump".  But here is the thing: would Syrians who oppose US strike be contacted by Western correspondents in Beirut? Will Syrian refugees living in West or East dare express anti-Syrian rebel views to reporters? And when Syrian refugees in Lebanon voted in the last Syrian election in support of the regime, they were resoundingly attacked, ridiculed, and mocked and dismissed by Western and Arab Gulf regime reporters for making the wrong choice.  The only thing missing from New York Times article above is the prediction that Syrians would welcome US liberators with "sweets and flowers".  Where is Kanan Makiyya when you US wars need him?
