US Terror-Bombing Massacres Civilians
by Stephen Lendman
US terror-bombing in the battle for Mosul has nothing to do with liberating the city, everything to with destroying it.
A similar strategy is employed in Syria, smashing vital infrastructure on the phony pretext of combating ISIS.
America created and/or supports terrorist groups in both countries and elsewhere – waging war OF terror, not on it.
Civilians in harm’s way are being indiscriminately massacred, residential neighborhoods turned to rubble, terror-bombing burying entire families beneath the wreckage of their homes – media scoundrels ignoring high crimes demanding accountability.
Last week’s mosque bombing in western Aleppo province slaughtered over four dozen worshipers, injured many more. Pentagon authorities lied, claiming an al-Qaeda structure was targeted, not a mosque. Its rubble and death toll proved otherwise.
Overnight Tuesday, US terror-bombing massacred over 30 Syrian civilians about 20 miles west of Raqqa, many others injured, according to residents and eye-witnesses.
Bodies are still being pulled from rubble. A school was struck hosting around 50 displaced families. Two days earlier, US terror-bombing slaughtered 30 civilians in Matab al-Borashid village near Raqqa, including eight children and six women.
In Iraq and Syria, defenseless civilians are being massacred on the phony pretext of combating ISIS – US war crimes unreported in the West.
Wherever America shows up, mass slaughter and destruction follow. Endless US imperial wars rage in Syria, Iraq and other theaters – horrors inflicted on millions ignored by media scoundrels.
Trump wants tens of billions more dollars budgeted for militarism and warmaking. America gives new meaning to the term rogue state.
Since Pentagon warplanes began terror-bombing Syria and Iraq in 2014, thousands of civilians were slaughtered or injured, numerous others displaced, vital infrastructure in both countries destroyed.
