U.S. Murders 100 Syrian Soldiers, Claims “Self-Defense” In Country America Invaded And Occupies

By Brandon Turbeville

In the latest instance of American war criminality, the United States launched an air attack against the Syrian military on Wednesday, February 7, 2018. This brazen aggression against the sovereign government of Syria has resulted in the death of at least one hundred “forces aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad” according to U.S. military officials.

The U.S. military claims the strikes were “defensive” and that they were in retaliation for a “threatening” “Syrian Army-led attack consisting of five hundred troops – backed by artillery and tanks – during the night of Wednesday to Thursday against positions of Arab and Kurdish partner militias at oilfields near the town of Khasham on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River,” according to al-Masdar News.

By “Arab and Kurdish partner militias,” the U.S. is referring to the terrorist Marxists and jihadists of the YPG and SDF respectively.

By “forces aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad” the U.S. could be referring to any number of participants – i.e. the Syrian military, local militias, Hezbollah, Iranian, or even Russian forces. Neither the Syrian nor American governments have released details as to the identity of which forces were attacked by the American military though Lebanese news outlet, al-Masdar News, suggests that the victims belonged to the Syrian military itself. Reports and on the ground evidence in Syria seems to corroborate al-Masdar’s claims.

The U.S. attack represents yet another brazen act of hubris and arrogance that goes hand in hand with the Western imperialism which has seen the United States and NATO march across the world, leaving nothing but their bloody footprints behind them. To claim “self-defense” in a country that you have destabilized, invaded, and occupied is hypocrisy to say the least. It is also a violation of national sovereignty and international law.

The United States is incapable of acting in self-defense in Syria because its entire presence in the country is an offensive act. As leading Syria researcher, Vanessa Beeley writes on social media,

Every soldier in Syria fighting in the SAA is a child of Syria, a child of a family in Syria. This is murder and it is a supreme war crime that must not go unpunished. These men and women are heroes giving their lives to defend their people, their way of life and their entire existence with the hostility of the international community bearing down upon them.

Every one of those soldiers murdered today, all those murdered before are someone’s son, father, daughter, mother, sister, brother – they have names, they had a future, dreams – they have been torn from their family, for what?

The answer, of course, is a greater geopolitical agenda; i.e. the destruction of Syria before moving on to Iran and then Russia itself. This attack is not a mistake or an aberration, it is merely another move on the chessboard.

  1. This would be like a foreign nation’s military attacking USA troops on AMERICAN SOIL while encamped IN THE USA. What hypocrisy! The USA acts like a beacon of morality while going about molesting the rest of the world! If the world doesn’t know who the REAL bad guys are in the Syria scenario they are pretty blind. It’s the ones who don’t belong there, were NEVERF asked to be there, and actually are one of the main culprits that started the whole thing in the first place. President Trump will never be a real man until he learns how to respect other nations’ sovereignty! The same goes for everyone in the US government. The dinosaur mentality of “the USA is the world’s policeman” must be scrapped for a more realistic policy line!

  2. except for LEGAL (questionable – see below) treaties, South Korea (turn down the burner anyway), Japan (they can look after themselves), Germany (same as the above), the United Kingdom (same story) America should begin withdrawing all forces occupying (whether legally, NOT – treaty, or illegally – Afghanistan, Syria, and over a hundred other “Sovereign” nations around the world) immediately
    they are not the police force of the world, more like the Keystone Kops
    Donald Trump, here is looking at you, to remove this stain from America’s history, because if you don’t, you will be remembered the same as your predecessor, the lying turd-in-charge, barack hussein obama “all of our troops in Iraq will come home” only to be redeployed to Afghanistan and Syria, and SOMEHOW back to Iraq as well?
    of course the US constitution disallows a standing military – thus, we don’t have to argue the legality of their deployment, because they are in any case illegal!

    • “of course the US constitution disallows a standing military – thus, we

      It is this which I see as a spur which triggers the return of Confederated States of America. Do not misread or misunderstand, this is no call to enact slavery or oppression of any one that is American, Native or otherwise here. This is a call for the States themselves to kick out the Federals, the Federal Reserve and the war mongering Pharisees that folks call the banking or capital class.

      The People are granted every right to do that as well. That right lies in the Deceleration of Independence and Amendment X of the Bill of Rights. What else can we do with a moronic psychopath in full control of The Big Red Button? What else ends extrajudicial rendition of anyone at any time for any or no reason? They will not redress grievances, they offer no representation yet we’re taxed. How much clearer does it need to be, we’re right back where we were before the Deceleration of Independence, which states:


      “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people
      to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another
      and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal
      station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a
      decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should
      declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

      We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
      equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
      Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
      — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
      deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That
      whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is
      the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
      Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
      powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
      Safety and Happiness.”

  4. Think we need to revisit the documents linked.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    The Vice Admirality Courts

    Over all, US History organization is an excellent resource.
