A terrified, crying boy standing in the rubble caused by Russian & Syrian carpet bombing of 400,000 civilians in Eastern Ghouta, Syria:
Fares Shehabi, the Assadist politician who presided over the capture of eastern Aleppo in December 2016, mocks this boy, the White Helmet rescue workers, & those being treated in hospital for injuries & dismemberments as all Hollywood actors. That the US under Trump & UN officials condemn this slaughter does not signify they are on the side of Syrian revolutionists. Assad has a price to pay to the US & its other allies for their military involvement in the counterrevolution & that price is coming due. It’s a messy alliance & a ruthless operation. The US doesn’t care any more about the civilians of Eastern Ghouta than it did about those in Raqqa, Syria & Mosul, Iraq where it carpet bombed hundreds of thousands of civilians in the name of fighting ISIS.
Stand with the Syrian people & demand the immediate cessation of Syrian, Russian, & US coalition bombing & the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces from Syria.
