COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY SONJA MEYER IN THE GUARDIAN
We will ignore the bombs to continue delivering humanitarian aid in Syria
Sorry, but that is a truly a phony headline.
That convoy was torched by the US-affiliated terrorists in the neighborhood through which it was passing and/or Hellfire missiles fired from an American drone. These missies leave no bomb craters, and that is what we see in videos, no bomb craters.
After the Russians released some drone video showing a non-military vehicle with a large-scale mortar going by the trucks and also images of an American Predator drone overhead, the US shut up its phony yapping about Russians or Syrians attacking this convoy.
Motives for this attack included getting the American war crime of bombing Syrian soldiers just days ago off the front page. It worked, and we've read little but phony angst and false claims in the press.
When you bomb a country with which you are not at war and kill more than sixty soldiers and injure another hundred, I think we rightly call that a war crime. The bombing enabled ISIS to gain a small initiative.
