Hypocrisy at its finest: US announces millions in aid for Syria crisis, caused largely by its regime-change policy and sanctions

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken emerging as a humanitarian hero from the UN Security Council’s briefing on aid delivery to Syria represents a damning indictment on Western hypocrisy.
“How is it possible that we can’t find in our hearts the common humanity to actually take meaningful action?” Blinken said on Monday, calling for the reopening of aid corridors and an increase in aid for war-torn Syria.

Whilst the Biden administration’s representative has been praised by Western media as playing the role of a concerned humanitarian, what has been left out of the picture is Blinken’s role in starting the war on Syria 10 years ago. Under the Obama administration, Blinken helped engineer the US plot to aid “Syrian rebels” in order to take down the Assad government. Instead of backing purely “moderate” opposition, the US ended up providing arms and training to armed groups linked with Al-Qaeda. They also backed the claims of extremist groups, helping their war efforts with airstrikes based on reports of chemical weapons attacks – all this supposedly being out of apparent concern for Syrian civilians.

It seems the Biden administration has, for now, dropped the attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by force, with Antony Blinken claiming to have learnt lessons from the Obama administration’s failure on the issue. Instead the US government now pursues a policy of resource theft, occupation of Syrian lands, and a brutal sanctions regime.
