While the country is obsessing over the midterm elections on Tuesday, the military industrial complex rife with neoconservative nation builders has completed its hijacking of President Trump’s foreign policy. Instead of navigating a non-interventionist America First foreign policy, the president has hired warmonger John Bolton lobs bombs and sends troops to Syria based on faulty information of chemical weapons attacks. Is Trump appeasing the generals and neoconservatives in order to stay in power? Or has he fallen prey to their deadly designs? Either way, the situation in Syria is worsening on a daily basis because of the United States’ destructive policies in the region.
ISIS is destroyed? Then why are we still bombing Syrian towns and maintaining a troop presence in the wartorn country? A number of U.S.-led airstrikes in recent weeks are part of a disturbing trend of continuing death and destruction wrought by our military.
Week - Coalition - Targets - Town - Al-Shafa
Last week, the U.S.-led coalition bombed targets located in the town of Al-Shafa in Deir ez-Zor. Two days before the airstrike, the coalition launched an attack that killed five civilians, including two children.
On Saturday, the state news agency Sana reported that another airstrike on the city of Hajin in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province killed at least 15 civilians. The majority of the dead were women and children.
Foreign - Ministry - Coalition - Law - Murdering
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has accused the U.S.-led coalition of violating international law with its murdering of innocent civilians, stating that the U.S. is not fighting terrorism in Syria. The accusation leveled on October 20 urged the United Nations to launch an investigation into an airstrike on Al-Sousa and Al-Bubadran in Deir-Ez-Zor, which killed 62 people and injured dozens more.
This strike was the second-such strike last month that resulted in the deaths of civilians. An October 18 attack on civilian homes in the same province was also carried out.
