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.

This is what I have been saying all along. The US and Kurdish invasion forces are committing genocide and mass extermination of the native Syrian Arab inhabitants of Raqqa for ethnic cleansing purposes. The US tyranny and its Kurdish proxies must be stopped and exposed to the world for they really are. The Syrian Arab Army is duty bound to come to the rescue of these civilians. It should immediately look to the East and advance to block this invasion of Syrian Arab land and the extermination of the local Syrian population by the Kurdish terrorists to create an artificial… Read more »

Oh, you know, if you take a look at the war in the ME since 1948, 11 millions people died. In 90% of these scores, not a single westerner was implied. At the body-count contest, you have : 1. Muhammad : 270-800 millions 2. Hitler : 60-80 millions 3. Genghis Khan : 40-60M (depends if you consider Hulagu Khan with or not) 4. Stalin : 20M If we consider USA merely on par with Middle East in terms of population, as they’ve killed about 5 millions since WW2, ME is statistically speaking 2 times worst. I’m not saying USA’s not… Read more »

Why do I exhort people to pray to GOD on behalf of Syria (and Yemen)? Because He is all powerful and hates injustice and cruelty. He is not intimidated in the least by any nation or its military technology. Isaiah 40:15 reads: “No, for ALL THE NATIONS of the world are but a drop in a bucket. They are nothing more than the dust on the scales. He picks u the whole earth as though it was a grain of sand.” Pray earnestly and diligently to GOD to do whatever needs to be done to each country that is harming… Read more »

But you seem to forget that if he exists, which still has to be proven, YHWH is a pretty jealous God (as John Lennon was a jealous guy)… As all of them turned (actually were forced) into Allah, the Moon-God (AKA Hubal, AKA Ba’al) and bow to an idol made of stone (the Qa’aba), well, there’s no way your God will help worshippers to the other God.
Now if we assume YHWH created the billions of stars, initiated the Big-Bang, etc, you’re not hot at all for him to release such power nowhere near around 😀

The Kurds could have accepted shovels from ISIS to dig their own mass graves, after Assad left them for dead so he could defend Western Syria. Instead the Kurds accepted US arms and survived. Now you all will kill them for it. You anti-zionistsa and opportunistic Ba’athists are genocidal. Unite with the YPG and drive Turkey AND Israel out of Syria. Then write a constitution for direct democracy and participatory socialism by and for Syrians.

Now, for sure, MSM are not acting as critical as when Obongo/Killary/Kerry were pushing the effort at humiliating Russia, thus, be it for Raqqa, Aleppo, Fallujah or Mosul and even Gaza, as the cockroaches use civilians as human shields, which is a war crime, the biggest of hypocrisy comes from journos acting with double standards, not blaming such civilians casualties on militants!
In other terms, what is done in the article is as hypocritical as the Aleppo hypocrisy many MSM journos spread…
