USA killing civilians in Iraq, Syria and all over the globe through indiscriminate targeting. When there is an attack on civilians in the West, then there is round the clock coverage. Condolences, outrage, detailed biographies of the victims. But, when the victims are innocent Syrians, Iraqis (and … the list goes on) and the perpetrators are American forces, then that isn’t newsworthy. That isn’t “terrorism”. That isn’t “murder”. Just salute the troops, wave the flags, hold the parades.
In Syria, the journalistic monitoring group Airwars reports a series of U.S.-led coalition attacks in recent days have left scores of civilians dead. Airwars said one coalition airstrike on Tuesday leveled a home in Raqqa, killing up to 50 civilians, including entire families. Among the dead were Hamada Al-Saeed Al-Hamzawi and three of his family members. A separate U.S.-led airstrike that same day reportedly killed 11 members of a single family. And on Wednesday, an artillery attack, likely from U.S.-backed forces, reportedly killed Raqqa resident Mohammed Ahmed Abdel-Rahim.
