The bombings in Damascus just scream “Reichstag fire of 1933” in Germany. This is why history is so important so you can instantly pick out true terrorism from propaganda.
The Nazi Party burned the the Reichstag (Germany Congress) and blamed it on the “communists” to drive up fear and support for their movement.
The Syrian government bombed its capital to do the same thing but “communist” name has been rubbed out and “terrorist” has been written in its place. For what, support for its eliminationist, murderous crackdown. The fire of Germany was designed to get the German government aligned with Hitler’s vision, the Syrian bombings were designed to, attempt, to get the Arab League aligned with Assad.
This is why history is so important.
