Ha...ha.., beginilah cara membungkam pendapat yang tidak sesuai dengan pendapat 
mainstream yang disesuaikan dengan kepentingan kaum imperialis!!! Memang tidak 
logis tuduhan penyerangan dengan kimia kepada penduduknya sendiri, ketika pada 
kenyataannya pemeirntah Suriah sudah memenangkan perang melawan kaum teroris 
yang didukung imperialis. Persis seperti tuduhan kepada PKI untuk melakukan 
kudeta, padahal PKI di jaman Sukarno berada dalam kedudukan yang membuatnya 
semakin populer!!

How one man’s pause became a haunting symbol of Aleppo’s destruction

It was a picture perfectly framed by a war: a 70-year-old man in socks and 
sandals, smoking a pipe beside an old record player, in the gray-dusted ruins 
of his bedroom in Aleppo.The world has followed Syria's long civil war through 
viral images. Its horrors were chronicled on Twitter by a 7-year-old girl. Its 
politics were humanized in a little boy's letter, read aloud on the White 
House's YouTube channel.Even so, after six years of bombings and atrocities and 
dead children, rebel surges and army advances, a single still frame of an old 
man on a bed stirred something deep in many people, many thousands of miles 
away.“A moment of tranquility amongst Hell on earth,” someone wrote on 
Instagram, where Agence France-Presse posted the photo Friday.“A novel in one 
shot,” The Washington Post's Ishaan Tharoor tweeted three days later.[The 
stunned, bloodied face of 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh sums up the horror of 
Aleppo]Thousands have shared and seen it since then — from Reddit to the 
Guardian and back to Instagram, where someone asked: “Did anyone talked with 
this man? Where's his story?”Well there's always 1,000 words.The man on the bed 
is Mohammed Mohiedin Anis — better known as “Abu Omar” in the city where he 
made a fine life for himself before photographer Joseph Eid found him living in 
destitution last week.“He was a wealthy man,” Eid told The Post. “He speaks 
five languages. He studied medicine, went to Italy and had a lipstick 
enterprise.”Eid knows what war can do to a life. At age 41, he has photographed 
the war in Iraq, the ouster of Moammar Gaddafi in Libya, and all six years of 
Syria's horror.He was on another assignment when his employer, Agence 
France-Presse, sent another team to Aleppo a year ago to meet Anis.That was 
during his neighborhood's long occupation by rebel forces. Anis's two wives and 
eight children had left Aleppo, but he remained in the home where his ancestors 
were buried, putting up with sporadic bombs.He wore a feather in his overcoat 
in January 2016, and showed off his dwindling collection of vintage American 
cars, with which he was obsessed.
