    Damascus rejects Pentagon findings, demands troop withdrawal



    The Syrian permanent mission to the UN stated on Friday that the US must withdraw its troops from the country at once and pay reparations for the deaths of dozens of civilians in a 2019 airstrike in the town of Baghuz.


    Damascus categorically rejected a Pentagon report claiming it was not at fault for the attack, declaring its conclusions represent “an admission of negligence that calls for accountability.”



    The Pentagon had released a report on Tuesday claiming the March 18, 2019 airstrike targeting an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) encampment in Syria's Baghuz, initially believed to have killed some 70 people, did not violate the rules of engagement or laws of war.

    Seems like even with war crimes there is a two-tier justice system.

    They lie all the time. They lie about everything.

    They know they are lying. We know they are lying. They know we know they are lying.

    They lie anyway. It's what they do.

    The first victim of war is the truth.

    The West raged against the Azov Battalion for years, now they 're okay with those neo-Nazi's.

    And our daily dose of deep state apologists who only reaffirm their blind hatred of all things Russian.

    Better yet, Syria should pay for all the Syrian mercenaries Assad sent to reinforce Tsar Vlad's aggression.

    Fuck Syria.

    Assad is barely even in power.

    If not for the Russians protecting him, his whole fucking nation would probably fall over into a chaos of tribes.

    Which is how ISIS took over to begin with.

    Syria, is nothing more than a desert filled with tribes and factions that hate each other.

    In other words: Your typical Muslim nation, just without much of a ruling government.

    It has had the power to resist U.S. efforts to overthrow Assad for quite some time. Here's an article on this in 2012:

    Bid to Overthrow Assad Fails - CounterPunch.org

    Another in 2015, by which point the U.S. had been trying to overthrow him for 10 years:

    The U.S. Has Been Pushing to Overthrow Assad in Syria for 10 Years - Alternet.org



    They were said to have given up in 2018:

    The US Has Given Up on the Overthrow of Assad - CounterPunch.org


    In truth, it took until 2019 for the U.S. to finally pull out all its troops:

    Trump defends pulling US troops out of Syria | nypost.com

    Trump made many mistakes, and I used to think that pulling out of Syria was one of them, but I've changed my mind. Ideally, the U.S. would have never gotten in, but like Afghanistan, I suspect there was no point where they could have gotten out gracefully; I suspect it had to end the way it began, as an unmitigated disaster.

    So there you have it- unlike in Afghanistan or Iraq, the U.S. didn't even overthrow the leader of Syria, despite 14 years of trying. Compare that to how fast the Taliban retook Afghanistan after the U.S. left and we can get a sense of how bad the U.S. is at truly changing a nation via military means. Mind you, the above sources are from publications that are -sympathic- to the U.S.'s aims to overthrow Asad.


    Here's one from a source that clearly isn't:
