Physicians for Human Rights, a respected US human rights group of health professionals, issued this report that at least 890 medical professionals have been killed in Syria from 2011 through December 2018, 90-percent of them targeted by Syrian & Russian forces. Assad propagandists routinely denounce all human rights groups who report realities in Syria as stooges of the “US regime-change operation.” There’s no one left to denounce. That they have persuaded so many that it is progressive to support the Assad dictatorship & Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians & medical personnel speaks to the crisis in politics which has turned the international antiwar movement into a rah-rah vehicle for every repressive regime at the expense of popular liberation struggles for democracy. The remnants of that antiwar movement are now holed up in an abandoned embassy instead of organizing antiwar protests against the several US-NATO wars.
