The situation in Syria

24 February 2018

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.
