After nearly a week of the current aerial & artillery siege of Eastern Ghouta (it has sustained bombardment since 2013), Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders report that as of last Saturday over 520 people have been killed & countless thousands more injured. According to MSF, medical buildings are directly targeted by Russian & Syrian bombers using barrel bombs & missiles, making it dangerous to treat the injured & increasing their chances of death.
US coalition bombers are not directly involved in this siege of unarmed civilians so it is impossible for the corrupted antiwar movement to maintain this is a US regime change operation. Still they remain silent in the interests of defending Assad’s dictatorship. Those who do not speak out against this slaughter of civilians have reached the nadir of their betrayals & political degeneration. There’s no place lower for them to go so they are advised to skulk off quietly to a place where they can rot in peace.
Stand with the people of Eastern Ghouta & demand the immediate cessation of Syrian, Russian, & US coalition bombing of civilians & the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces from Syria.
