The United States and Russia have lashed at each other over the Syrian conflict, with Washington and Moscow trading blows at the urgent UN Security Council meeting on Sunday.
"We reached a new low," the analyst said.
Doctorow described the US' behavior at the UN as "rude." He also noted that such rhetoric has been absent from the UN Security Council meetings for decades. We have not seen "this level of open hostility and direct name calling" since 1985.
"The violence of this, the extreme hostility implicit in these actions suggests that something more is going on between the two sides than we find on the front pages of the newspapers," the analyst observed. Latest developments seem to point that "something very serious has transpired between Russia, the United States and its closes allies over Syria – far more serious than what has been in the public domain."
On Monday, Damascus said that the Syrian intelligence services have an audio recoding of communications between US forces and Daesh prior to Deir ez-Zor attack that claimed the lives of at least 62 Syrian servicemen on September 17.
"It could be true, but it will have no implications because truth is the least of the factors on the playing field today," the analyst noted.
Doctorow recalled that the Western media did not cover the Russian Defense Ministry's press briefing over Daesh's illegal oil trade with Turkey.
In Doctorow's opinion, the Syrians and the Russians "can prove anything they like," but mainstream media in the West will "totally" ignore it. "That is a sad fact today. This is why force and not diplomacy seems to be resolving the question or seems to be addressing the question of what future Syria has. Diplomacy has only been decorative."
