Russia’s Sputnik News reported examples of US war crimes post-WW II.
My own examples follow below. First Sputnik’s:
The July 1950 No Gun Ri massacre occurred one month after Truman’s war of aggression on nonbelligerent, nonthreatening North Korea.
Covered up for nearly half a century, what happened took the lives of around 300 men, women and children.
From December 1968 – May 1969, US forces indiscriminately massacred thousands of North Vietnamese civilians in so-called “free-fire zones” during Operation Speedy Express — to cause maximum numbers of casualties.
In February 1991 near end of Operation Desert Storm in Iraq, civilians and fleeing combatants were massacred along the so-called Highway of Death.
In May 1999 near Korisa, Kosovo, US terror-bombing massacred civilian refugees — ones who unsuccessfully sought shelter out of harm’s way.
In the second battle of Fallujah in November 2004 — during the Second Persian Gulf War — US and UK forces terror-bombed Iraqis with banned weapons, including white phosphorous, incendiary bombs, and radiological weapons.
Thousands were massacred in cold blood, largely civilians.
In October 2015, US forces terror-bombed a Kunduz, Afghanistan hospital on the phony pretext of targeting Taliban fighters.
Dozens were killed, dozens more injured.
During the siege of Mosul, Iraq in 2017, an estimated 40,000 Iraqi civilians were massacred on the phony pretext of combating US created and supported ISIS jihadists.
Similar mass slaughter occurred in the same year against Raqqa, Syria civilians.
US genocides began by mass-exterminating countless millions of Native America to expand the nation from sea-to-shinning sea — by stealing their land, livelihoods and lives.
In his book titled, “A Little Matter of Genocide: Holocaust and Denial in the Americas 1492 to the Present,” Ward Churchill explained that the nation’s indigenous population was reduced to at most 3% of its original numbers before it all began — by butchery and other forms of brutality.
During the infamous Middle Passage transatlantic slave trade — the African holocaust — millions perished en route in extreme discomfort.
Around 100 million human beings arriving in America were sold like cattle.
Describing the centuries-long horror, historian Howard Zinn said the following:
US slavery was “the most cruel form in history.”
It reflected a “frenzy for limitless profit that comes from capitalistic agriculture; the reduction of the slave to less than human status by the use of racial hatred, with that relentless clarity based on color, where white was master, black was slave.”
Post-WW II US genocides occurred against North Koreans, Southeast Asians, Central and Latin Americans, Africans, other Asians, Yugoslavs, Afghans, Yemenis, Iraqis, Libyans, Syrians and others.
With no end of it in prospect, unparalleled genocide has been ongoing by kill shots throughout the West and elsewhere since December 2020 — the human toll unknown because of coverup and denial.
If continues longterm, billions may perish out of sight and mind — unwanted people that US/Western dark forces want exterminated to more greatly empower and enrich the privileged few at their expense.
During America’s dirty 1898 – 1902 Spanish-American War against Spain to cede control of the Philippines, hundreds of thousands of Filipinos were brutally slaughtered.
US cutthroat killer general Jacob Smith ordered his troops to:
“Kill and burn.”
“This is no time to take prisoners.”
“The more you kill and burn, the better.”
“Kill all above the age of ten.”
Then “turn (the country into) a howling wilderness.”
Few people anywhere suffered longer, more horrifically with anguish than Haitians for over 500 years and still counting.
They endured genocidal oppression, slavery, despotism, colonization, reparations, embargoes, sanctions, deep poverty, starvation, untreated diseases, unrepayable debt, and natural calamities unprotected.
Along with strategic bombing to destroy an adversary’s economic and military might, US terror bombings targeted civilians to break their morale, cause panic, weaken an invented enemy’s will to fight, along with inflicting mass casualties and punishment.
Geneva and other international laws prohibit it.
The Laws of War: Laws and Customs of War on Land (1907 Hague IV Convention’s Article 25 states:
“The attack or bombardment, by whatever means, of towns, villages, dwellings, or building which are undefended is prohibited.”
Fourth Geneva protects civilians in time of war.
It prohibits violence of any kind against them and requires treatment for the sick and wounded.
The 1945 Nuremberg Principles forbid “crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
These include “inhumane acts committed against any civilian population, before or during the war,” including indiscriminate killing and “wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.”
In virtually all US wars of aggression against invented enemies, the above and similar war crimes occur with disturbing regularity.
During the firebombing of Dresden, Germany in February 1945 — when what Russia calls its Great Patriotic War was virtually won — the US and UK gratuitously incinerated around 100,000 city residents.
The morally indefensible high crime was repeated against Tokyo the same month in similar fashion after virtual surrender by imperial Japan was rejected by Franklin Roosevelt. surrendered and accepted defeat.
In August 1945, Harry Truman gratuitously destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki by nuclear immolation.
When WW II was virtually over, hundreds of thousands were killed.
To this day, future generations were scarred with birth defects and other serious health issues.
During the post-WW II period, countless millions more were massacred during US imperial wars — accountability for the highest of high crimes never forthcoming.
Genocidal wars were waged against nonbelligerent North Korea, North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and worldwide against unwanted people.
US use of chemical, biological, radiological and other banned weapons is well-documented throughout US history.
From smallpox infected blankets against Native Americans to chlorine gas during the US Civil War to today’s chemical, biological, radiological and other banned weapons, anything goes has been official US policy throughout its history.
Deadly dioxin-containing Agent Orange and nerve gas were used by US forces in Southeast Asia.
So were other terror weapons in all US wars of aggression.
It’s not a pretty picture.
The self-styled indispensable state’s history is pockmarked with virtually every type crime imaginable at home and worldwide.
They’ve gone on by endless wars of choice against Native Americans to the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli to the present day at home and abroad worldwide — with no end of them in prospect.
