It is sometimes said the first casualty of war is the truth. Following on from yesterday’s horrific chemical weapons attack in Syria, all sides rush to play the blame game rather than heal the injured (civilians again..) and counsel the bereaved. Yes, the top priority in a war as complex as Syria as so often in the past is to get your version of events out in a hurry. The horrific carnage which you can read all about below, plays second fiddle to who controls the narrative. That’s almost as sickening as the actual death and destruction rained down on civilians in this never ending war.
