British-US-Danish-Australian killing of Syrian soldiers

This video from England is called Don’t Bomb Syria Protest- London, 2015.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Britons also involved in attack on Syrian army

Today, 16:33

The British air force was also involved in an air raid by the international coalition in which dozens of Syrian soldiers were killed. It had already become known that Denmark and Australia participated in the attack on Saturday south of Deir al-Zor.

The British Ministry of Defense speaks of a mistake ….

In the attack also Danish F-16s, Australian Hornets and US American aircraft were involved. According to the BBC, the British contribution to the attack was a Reaper, an unmanned aircraft. Which can fire Hellfire missiles and laser-guided Paveway bombs.

At least sixty-two Syrian troops died and 100 were wounded on Saturday when US jets bombed a Syrian government base on Al-Tharda mountain near Deir ez-Zor. Remarkably, the US Central Command has still not apologized for the attack, even though its bombing allowed the Islamic State (IS) militia to storm and capture the base shortly afterwards. This massacre is a flagrant act of war that threatens to escalate the Syrian conflict into an all-out war pitting the US-led NATO alliance against Syria and its allies, including Russia. Everything suggests that the attack, coming in the initial days of a US-Russian ceasefire in Syria openly criticized last week by the US army brass, was deliberately committed by forces inside the US government hostile to the ceasefire: here.

In a front-page article entitled “Errant strike impairs effort to calm Syria,” the New York Times Monday provided an unconditional alibi for the air strikes carried out by US and allied warplanes two days earlier that claimed the lives of some 90 Syrian army soldiers, while leaving over 100 more wounded: here.

British government has no strategy, no plan and only ‘phantom’ allies in Syria, scathing Commons report reveals. As ceasefire sits on the brink of collapse, MPs’ report paints a damning picture of Britain’s bombing campaign: here.

Airstrikes by the United States and its allies against two Syrian army positions Sept. 17 killed at least 62 Syrian troops and wounded dozens more. The attack was quickly treated as a non-story by the U.S. news media; U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) claimed the strikes were carried out in the mistaken belief that Islamic State forces were being targeted, and the story disappeared. The circumstances surrounding the attack, however, suggested it may have been deliberate, its purpose being to sabotage President Obama’s policy of coordinating with Russia against Islamic State and Nusra Front forces in Syria as part of a U.S.-Russian cease-fire agreement: here.

More Australian troops to be sent to the Philippines: here.

    WASHINGTON has investigated its warplanes’ attack on Syrian army positions in September and concluded that, because slaughtering over 80 troops was an “honest mistake,” it did not break international law.

    It blames “human error” for identifying a Syrian military vehicle as belonging to Islamic State (Isis) and Russian monitoring services for taking too long to inform the US air force of its error.

    There are too many holes in this Pentagon-supplied account for anyone to accept this whitewash.

    A US-Russian protocol provides for either air force planning to attack to give coordinates to the other to minimise hitting wrong targets.

    Washington would have the world believe that its air force not only misidentified Syrian forces defending Deir el-Zour as Isis fighters but compounded the error by providing the Russian side with the wrong coordinates. This would have confused Russian monitors when told by their Syrian allies that their soldiers were under bombardment, with the Russians believing that the raids were taking place elsewhere.

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad suspected from the outset that the attacks were deliberate and intended to weaken his country’s resistance to the war waged against it at the behest of its regional and Nato enemies.

    Solidarity assistance from Russia, Iran and volunteers from Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan have turned the military tide against the jihadists and their wealthy sponsors.

    Russia’s precautionary co-operation with the US to prevent clashes between the two major powers does not alter reality that air strikes by US, British and French planes and Turkey’s incursion into northern Syria are breaches of international law.

    Death and destruction caused by their military activity are worthy of designation as war crimes, yet these hypocrites accord themselves the right to pronounce on the war-crime culpability of others, especially the Syrian government, in its existential war of self-defence.

    Moscow’s role is legitimate because it was requested by the internationally recognised civilian power in Damascus.

    Recourse by Nato powers and their allies to military intervention, especially against Arab/Muslim countries, ranging from aerial bombardment in support of surrogate forces all the way to full-blooded invasion, has become so regular that politicians and media rarely question it. MPs on both sides of the House routinely bay for intervention on a variety of grounds, usually on the spurious justification that “we” must do something.

    Nato powers do not have a free pass that spares them from the requirement to abide by international law, as much as they may “reserve the right to take military action” as though a part of normal diplomatic life.

    Military interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and Syria have all produced situations worse than existed previously.

    Yet those who perpetrated the 2011 Nato air war against Libya, failing to foretell the bloody chaos in store for that country, now have the gall to warn of a potential massacre in east Aleppo, demanding a ceasefire so that civilians can escape.

    This disingenuous demand disregards the reality that it is the jihadist forces who dominate the insurgency there that have prevented non-combatants from leaving, preferring to use them as human shields.

    The ceasefire call is designed to provide the jihadists with a respite to regroup and continue their murderous activities. According to the Russian military, the Castello main road is now open and safe for humanitarian convoys.

    This should be the main priority for those who profess concern for civilians rather than trying to drag out their suffering by deferring conclusive military defeat for the jihadi forces.
