America’s Worldwide Impunity

If you were living in a truly democratic country with a truly professional news media, you would think that this evolution of the United States into a rogue superpower violating pretty much every international law and treaty of the post-World War II era would be a regular topic of debate and criticism.

US Special Forces sabotage White House policy gone disastrously wrong

“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘Fuck this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias. “Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they know they are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘Fuck it, who cares?’”

Jordan’s king accuses Turkey of sending terrorists to Europe

“The fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy and Turkey keeps on getting a slap on the hand, but they are let off the hook.”

Abdullah made his remarks during a wide-ranging debriefing to Congress on 11 January [2016], the day a meeting with the US president, Barack Obama, was cancelled.

Abdullah said that Erdogan believed in a “radical Islamic solution to the region”.

Abdullah claimed that “radicalisation was being manufactured in Turkey” and asked the US senators why the Turks were training the Somali army.

‘US is defending ISIS’: Russia convenes UNSC meeting after US coalition strike on Syrian army

Obama has aided and abetted the Syrian terrorists since the start. The American agenda has not wavered in five years. They support terrorists who fight against the Syrian government, and have killed half a million Syrians in the drive to destroy that nation and eliminate it as a potential rival and opponent.

Now we have open hostilities targeting Syrian military units inside Syria.

“If previously we had suspicions that Al-Nusra Front is protected this way, now, after today’s airstrikes on the Syrian army we come to a really terrifying conclusion for the entire world: The White House is defending IS [Islamic State, formerly ISIS/ISIL],” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Rossiya 24.

Guardian:
Damascus claimed it had succeeded in taking Tharda despite the US bombing, and rejected Washington’s insistence that it had hit Syrian troops in error. A foreign ministry statement said that Syrian positions had been repeatedly attacked in strikes that were “on purpose and planned in advance”.

So much for Obama/Kerry’s pretend cease fire…

US-led coalition jets have bombed Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing 62 troops and “paving the way” for Islamic State militants, the Syrian Army General Command told the state television.

US-led coalition aircraft strike Syrian army positions, kill 62 soldiers – military

Syrian government says the raid aided ISIS.

The US Central Command later has issued a statement, saying that it had no intention of targeting Syrian government forces near Dier ez-Zor.

“Syria is a complex situation with various military forces and militias in close proximity, but [the] coalition would not intentionally strike a known Syrian military unit,” the statement read.
