#BreakingNews: Hundreds of Syrians needing evacuation and urgent medical care are trapped in Ghouta, an area now under siege. They need treatment for heart disease, kidney failure, cancer and more, but must first await evacuation.
14 people have already died waiting. The USA's attacks on Syria can only ratchet up the horrors being inflicted on the people there by multiple rival enemies.
This is part of a stepped-up imperialist intervention in Syria and Iraq that has already killed about 3,000 civilians, including families like this one. Further, it threatens wider wars in the region and in the world.
U.S. airstrikes have killed many hundreds in Iraq and Syria, not with chemical weapons but high explosive hellfire missiles and huge bombs. The Western-led coalition bombed a mosque, school and bakery in Syria. And then levelled apartment buildings in weat Mosul in Iraq, killing 230 people in that attack alone.
It is very clear that Washington wants to defeat ISIS not to do anything good for the people of Iraq and Syria, who have been Islamic fundamentalism’s main victims, but to impose its own domination and beat back other rivals. It has nothing to do with protecting people in Syria and everything to do with the U.S.’s strategic interests in the region and globally.
