US ‘Journalist’ Robert Caruso to Syrian People: ‘I enjoy seeing Syria torn apart by violence’

21st Century Wire says…

There are way too many establishment gatekeepers, operatives and general minions on the payroll and embedded in the US and European government-media corporate complex. They wear the title of ‘journalist’, but don’t fooled – they are anything but.

Occasionally, social deviants like Robert Caruso (see story below), become frustrated by having to compete for ideas and the truth with independent commentators on the internet. This gives them so much pain that they will drop their facade for moment and shift into their true self – proponents of violence – warmongers who seem to enjoy the suffering of innocents overseas, and who will justify any level of killing and destruction so long as it dovetails with their final objective. In the case of Syria, Caruso’s and his ilk are hell-bent on regime change, and would even cut a deal with the devil in order to make that happen. In this way, Caruso and his ilk have been acting as apologists for ISIS and al Nusra Front et all, since 2012.

Look close enough and you can see the blood pouring from the nibs of their poison pens.

What’s more incredible, is how amoral, pompous psychopaths like Caruso, masquerading as journalists, and acting as functionaries the US (and international) defense contractor industry, are allowed a platform with once respected brands like the Boston Globe, Huffington Post and The Guardian.

These people are never happy, until they get their war…


MEDIA FUELING CIVIL WAR: Western media played a key role in the Obfuscation of Islamic rebel atrocities in Syria since 2012.

Mainstream ‘Journalist’ Reveals Agenda; Calls For Rape, Destruction of Syria

It is well-known among informed observers and virtually anyone that has even the smallest shred of discernment that mainstream media outlets are nothing more than the mouthpieces for their respective governments, banks, and corporations. These outlets act as a clear propaganda machine drumming up the beat for war by the presentation of clever narratives, subtle falsehoods, and outright lies.

Such deceit relies on the trust of a beguiled public who simply cannot fathom the idea that they are being lied to on such a mass scale. Indeed, the secrecy of the true agenda is what gives propaganda its power. So it is very rare that mainstream outlets, their “journalists,” or other major figures openly state the agenda that is behind their reporting and gives purpose to their every word.

1-Robert-Caruso-Syria-InsiderBut this is exactly what Robert Caruso (photo, left) of the Boston Globe, Huffington Post, The Guardian, Daily Beast, The Jerusalem Post, and other mainstream outlets did in a fit of rage yesterday evening.

Caruso is well known for his hardcore adherence to the absurd notion that Bashar al-Assad is committing atrocities against the Syrian people, that there is such a thing as “moderate rebels,” and that the U.S. and its NATO allies should arm terrorists and engage in military operations inside Syria.

The statements come after a Twitter fight erupted between himself and Mimi al-Laham, (aka Syrian Girl), a Syrian activist and geopolitical analyst who has been critical of the role the West has played in funding, directing, arming, and controlling terrorists for the purposes of destroying the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

The two traded barbs for some time. During their back and forth, however, Caruso made the statement, “@Partisangirl I’m enjoying this conversation. I will enjoy your beloved Syria being torn apart with violence and Assad in exile even more.

Caruso’s response, of course, was in no way out of character. Caruso has Tweeted similar ideas in the past:

Normally, the social media ravings of a hack journalist that writes for discredited media outlets would not draw attention. But Caruso’s statements, befitting of a bloodthirsty warmonger, should be seen as illuminating of the general mode of thought that pervades mainstream outlets in regards to foreign wars and imperialism.

While generally hiding under the guise of a desire to “protect civilians” and “spread democracy,” the true aims are the destruction of a secular government, displacement of a people, and the expansion of empire across the globe. While low-level worker bees like Caruso undoubtedly shill with pleasure for money, considering the wages paid by a number of these outlets, a soul can be bought for a relatively small amount of money these days.

Caruso himself is no stranger to murder and pillage. According to the Huffington Post:

“He served with a Joint Task Force, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Bureau of Diplomatic Security at the Department of State, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). Robert is a veteran of the United States Navy and deployed to support Operation IRAQI FREEDOM and ENDURING FREEDOM.”

Still, it is rare for mainstream propagandists to actually state their intentions so openly in a public forum. Such was the case when Anne Marie Slaughter (appropriately named) wrote an article in which she revealed how the spreading of Democracy and humanitarian concerns in Syria were only a cover for an attempt to confront Russia. The difference between Caruso and Slaughter, however, is that Slaughter’s op-ed was at least well thought and carefully crafted, not an emotional outburst.

Caruso soon after began Tweeting excuses regarding the reason his offensive Tweets were sent out. He appeared to claim that he was hacked but he also claimed that he was not hacked. Much like his articles, however, there is no reason to take his claims of hacking seriously.

If Caruso and his employers wanted the Syrian people to suffer, then they have succeeded in their mission. Over 170,000 people have now been killed. Infrastructure has been devastated. Buffer Zones and No-Fly Zones are being considered and savage terrorists are now running rampant throughout most of the country. Robert Caruso, his colleagues, and the organizations that employ them can now sit back with satisfaction at their handiwork…
