Just a day after they bombed a village in the Mayadeen area, near the ISIS capital of Raqqa, US warplanes launched yet more airstrikes, and once again the indications out of the area is that everyone slain in the attacks was a civilian, bringing the two-day toll in excess of 115.
Today’s bombings, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, killed at least 80 civilians, overwhelmingly women and children. The slain were said to include “relatives” of ISIS fighters, including both Syrians and Moroccans. The other nine civilians were just locals, including five children.
There has been no official statement from the Pentagon on either of the two days of strikes, and no indication on why the US attacked the village, apart from it being sort of close to Raqqa, and the US has been launching a lot of airstrikes around the outskirts of Raqqa, nominally in support of the Kurdish YPG’s advances.
The US has been killing a soaring number of civilians in airstrikes in recent months, occasionally admitting to incidents, but generally keeping up the pretense of “enormous care” taken to not kill even more. While the Pentagon insists targeting rules have not been relaxed, the soaring death toll is clearly raising doubts about US policy.
That today’s attack killed a lot of ISIS family members is likely to add to questions, particularly as President Trump openly advocated killing family members of terrorists as part of the war, complaining that the lack of family killing amounted to a “very politically correct war.” That’s one thing President Trump won’t be accused of, given the number of civilians he’s having killed.

But the babies! What is Trump thinking?
The Christian white nationalist (Paleo) messiah doing what he promised.
White Nationalists were among the only antiwar protestors after the gas fiasco… no white nationalists support these strikes.
That’s right. All the Trump advisers who the MSM called white nationalist and alt right opposed these endless Zio wars and all have been driven out of the Trump inner circle and replaced by Israel Firster war mongers like Kushner
No, white nationalists weren’t “among the only” antiwar protesters. They weren’t even an especially large percentage of the antiwar protesters. Just as nationalists always do, they tried to hijack the kind of movement they can’t build themselves.
White Nationalist aren’t trying to hijack a movement that doesn’t exist. White Nationalist-Alt Right will continue to oppose Democratic Party-Republican Party Wars of Agression in the Middle East…..and the Libertrarian open borders war of demographic agression against THE HISTORIC NATIVE BORN WHITE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS….
So Tommy…I sure you must have seen by know the photos of the young Swedish girl named Elba who who was murdered by a Muslim yoot in Sweden….her body was split in two…one leg severed…chuck ground…
Muslims commit crimes. Christians commit crimes. Jews commit crimes. Idiot white nationalist(KKK)commit crimes. F**k off.
Is Nikki Haley’s big mouth going to now hold up the pictures of all the dead women and children whom Trump is slaughtering?
Trump openly advocated killing family members of terrorists…
I wonder how this bastard could distinguish who was a boogeyman
‘terrorist’, the family member of a boogeyman ‘terrorist’, or an
ordinary human being attempting to survive living in a nightmare,
when he slaughtered 50 ‘civilians’?
Trump probably got his info from the same source which claimed
Saddam had WMDs, mobile bio weapons labs, and an A Bomb.
He’s just being honest. He wasn’t president when wedding parties and funeral marches were bombed. It wasn’t his Administration in charge, when Mad Madeline Albright said 500,000 dead Iraqi children was “worth it”, live on 60 Minutes. So, there’s no distinction between your “bastards”.
So, there’s no distinction between your “bastards”….
You’re right about that. While you’re at it, don’t forget the
1 MILLION Iraqis Dubya slaughtered in 2003, and the
carnage Clinton and Oboomer are responsible for in Libya
Exactly – there is no distinction like I said. Is there a distinction for you?
My previous comment should have indicated to you that for ‘me’ there is no distinction between the policies of Trump, Clinton, Oboomer and Bush.
Is being honest suppose to be a good thing even when you say stupid s**t?
This happens in war.
I don’t know which is more terrible, lightly choosing wars in which this happens, or ignoring it while wailing about the same happening in far smaller numbers to our own.
Why not wail about all wars, all numbers who are killed deliberately? Is this civilized?
The U.S. did not so much choose this war as create it in the first place.
None of this mayhem would exist if it weren’t for US policy in the Middle East since Desert Storm. The U.S. is being utilized as the strongman in a problem-reaction-solution Heleglian Dialectic. Right now the Syrian Army and Russians would have already eliminated “Isis” if the U.S. only minded its own business, but it won’t because it wants the big seat at the post-war feeding table.
Donald Trump is the Commander-In-Chief. This is on him.
All of this based on the 9/11 lie…17 years of death and mayhem on these people, just to sell arms and advance the pie in the sky policies of greater Israel.
