It is reported widely, including by conservative journals, that 12.5 million Muslims have been killed in wars in the past 25 years. Those killed were mainly civilians whose deaths were caused by US-NATO militarism, UN sanctions against Iraq, & Saudi, Syrian, Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah militarism. It is not certain whether Palestinian Muslims, Kashmiris, Rohingya, Uyghur, Somalis, Libyans, & other African Muslims are included in that estimate. Such slaughter is the legacy of the detestable ‘war on terror’–the mantra of modern colonialism–now promoted in Syria by the corrupted & moribund cult which usurped the international antiwar movement. There is no way forward without rejecting the ideology & strategy of the ‘war on terror’ in its entirety.

This photo is from Syrian & Russian bombing of Idlib & Aleppo, now the front lines of the so-called ‘war on terror. In this incident, 15 people, including 8 children, were killed & 54 others were injured.
