Syrian massacre by West barely registers

Published 25/07/2016

Last Tuesday US and French warplanes killed approximately 200 Syrian civilians in air strikes near the Turkish-Syrian border.

There was no wall-to-wall coverage of this massacre on the 24-hour news channels as with the terrorist attack in Nice. There were no public condemnations from Western leaders, as with the Nice terrorist attack.

"There was no immediate comment from Washington" was the recurrent theme.
