BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 P.M.) – The ISIS-linked Amaq media group has released a short clip showing the aftermath of recent strikes carried out by US airpower in the embattled city of Raqqa. Albeit propaganda, at the forefront of this brief video snippet are real scenes of immense urban devastation and the corpses of children.
Even weeks prior to US-backed proxies on the ground storming the city of Raqqa, reports were being disseminated – with satellite imagery as evidence – that entire neighborhoods had already been flattened by American airstrikes.
Regarding the Aleppo propaganda war that was, pro-government forces were accused of besieging hundreds of thousands of people, indiscriminately bombing hospitals, schools and residential areas, using chlorine gas on civilians and, of course, killing children. Endless hashtag campaigns – promoted by Western media outlets – were initiated against the Assad government based on these accusations (i.e. AleppoGenocide, AleppoIsDying, etc).
Yet the footage shown in this article stands testament to the fact the US government – which leads the propaganda war against the Assad government – and the military under its control indiscriminately bombs civilian areas and kills children.
One is included to ask, where are the massive hashtag campaigns promoted by the Western media to be found regarding the carnage in Raqqa?
No nation’s military aviation – since the end of the Second World War – has killed more civilians through airstrikes than that of the United States. This is not an opinion, it is fact.
The American government also – since World War Two – holds the record for killing civilians via sustained sieges (considered an indirect form of collateral damage). Whilst the Assad government is accused of besieging rebel-held neighborhoods, the US besieges entire countries, sometimes in the case of countries like Cuba and Iran, for decades on end.
