It is not a good thing that US coalition forces took out 100 Assad troops using air & artillery fire. You don’t have to be the least conciliatory to the Assad regime & Syrian Army to point out that the US has no rights whatsoever to be in Syria or to point out that far more Syrian civilians have been bombed to death by US coalition war planes than they have taken out ISIS fighters. Raqqa is a dead zone after US “emancipation” from ISIS.

The US coalition is part of the counterrevolution in Syria–whatever the complexities & conflicts within that alliance including Syria, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, & others. Nothing good can come from US military intervention. The only principled demands are for the immediate cessation of all bombing & the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces. Those who think the US coalition are freedom fighters don’t understand one thing about the character of militarism or about the last 170 years of US military history.
