US Airstrike Kills 25, Including Children, in Eastern Syria: Slain were mostly women and children

A US airstrike in eastern Syria’s al-Shaafa region has killed at least 25 people on Monday, with more than half of the slain identified as women and children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Details on the slain are still emerging, but US spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon attempted to downplay reports, saying the US takes “all allegations seriously,” and that if any civilians were killed they’d be included in the Pentagon’s monthly list. The Pentagon, of course, tends to ultimately count only about 10-15% of the deaths in their official lists.

The al-Shaafa area is believed to be one of the last strongholds of ISIS forces inside Syria, and that has made it a popular target for airstrikes by various anti-ISIS factions. So far, however, the strikes have appeared to kill mostly just random civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The murder of a country's children, via airstrikes, is an assassination against that country's future.

In its vicious and violent attempt to partition Syria, the American Government is completely unphased by its military commiting these war crimes; I do not blame the American military for this; it is their mission, and they can shake off civilian casualties by characterising them as "collateral damage."

It is simply another manifestation of the Trump administration's "OR ELSE!!" foreign policy, one to which I am afraid that the American people have become "comfortably numb", in order to avoid having to think about this, or discuss the moral rightness of these actions.
