The situation in Syria
Re: Security Council and Syria
Syrian government forces are fighting to reclaim territory from the rebels/terrorists the U.S. sent in there to destabilize the country with a view to regime change and a leadership more amenable to American geopolitical designs on the region.
The U.S.-backed rebels/terrorists are predictably holed up with a civilian population held hostage.
The idea Syria and Russia are deliberately bombing civilians is childish waffle. But you don’t liberate a city by waltzing in and throwing daisies in the air.
The U.S. has been unable to liberate Afghanistan or Iraq from terrorists after more than a decade of warfare - and has basically abandoned Libya.
Meanwhile, America and Turkey - NATO members - have occupied northern Syria without authority.
The death toll in Afrin is actually higher than Ghouta but is receiving not one fraction as much attention from the Western media.
