(video) Soros Igniting Race War Using Communists + The Truth About the Civil War

I like Jake’s videos and take on things. He’s a southerner, so this is especially interesting. Actually seeing the toppling of the stature while the rioters cheer was pretty heart wrenching for me; even though, I’m a northerner, and still don’t understand the real reasons for the Civil War.

It’s no secret that Soros funds communist agitators (aka Antifa) to cause violent disruptions and spark race wars. Here is some information on his latest effort…

(video) Scott Bennett: US troops could be individually charged with war crimes for our illegal fighting in Syria

I hadn’t before heard before that participating US military personal could be charged for war crimes in Syria. That’s huge — the personal responsibility factor! Servicemen aren’t off the hook because they’re “only following orders.”

“Another 21 civilians killed in US-led strikes in Iraq, Syria”

Published on Aug 4, 2017

The civilian death toll from US-led coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Syria has increased as the coalition acknowledges casualties in its previous operations.

Pat Buchanan: Are America’s Wars Just and Moral? — HORRENDOUS CARNAGE in Syria: at least 475,000 dead, 5 million Syrian refugees driven into exile • 11 million Syrians driven from their homes into wretched living conditions and near famine • Two of Syria’s greatest and oldest cities pounded into ruins • Wars in Syria, Libya and Yemen never authorized by Congress • And WE WONDER WHY THEY HATE US • Meanwhile, as the Americans bomb across the Middle East, China rises!

Are America’s Wars Just and Moral?

“One knowledgeable official estimates that the CIA-backed fighters may have killed or wounded 100,000 Syrian soldiers and their allies,” writes columnist David Ignatius.

Given that Syria’s prewar population was not 10 percent of ours, this is the equivalent of a million dead and wounded Americans. What justifies America’s participation in this slaughter?

Columnist Eric Margolis summarizes the successes of the six-year civil war to overthrow President Bashar Assad.

“The result of the western-engendered carnage in Syria was horrendous: at least 475,000 dead, 5 million Syrian refugees driven into exile in neighboring states (Turkey alone hosts three million), and another 6 million internally displaced. … 11 million Syrians … driven from their homes into wretched living conditions and near famine. …

”Two of Syria’s greatest and oldest cities, Damascus and Aleppo, have been pounded into ruins. Jihadist massacres and Russian and American air strikes have ravaged once beautiful, relatively prosperous Syria. Its ancient Christian peoples are fleeing for their lives before US and Saudi takfiri religious fanatics.” …

Among the principles for a just war, it must be waged as a last resort, to address a wrong suffered, and by a legitimate authority. Deaths of civilians are justified only if they are unavoidable victims of a deliberate attack on a military target.

The wars in Syria, Libya and Yemen were never authorized by Congress. The civilian dead, wounded and uprooted in Syria, and the malnourished millions in Yemen, represent a moral cost that seems far beyond any proportional moral gain from those conflicts.

In which of the countries we have attacked or invaded in this century — Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen — are the people better off than they were before we came?

And we wonder why they hate us.

“Those to whom evil is done/Do evil in return,” wrote W. H. Auden in “September 1, 1939.” As the peoples of Syria and the other broken and bleeding countries of the Middle East flee to Europe and America, will not some come with revenge on their minds and hatred in their hearts?

Trump Admin Set To Expand Number Of Civilians Killed By Drone Strikes

Trump Admin Set To Expand Number Of Civilians Killed By Drone Strikes

By Nicholas West

The United States drone program by all objective analysis has not been a precision instrument for killing terrorists. Instead, the program has reversed long-standing policies of basic international human rights and rules of war by implementing pre-emptive killing without due process.

After years of Obama’s drone strikes that independent watchdog group Airwarsestimated to have been ten times the number as those of George Bush before him, the political pendulum has swung back to the right, but the killing of civilians continues to accelerate under Obama’s supposed arch nemesis Donald Trump.

Now, however, all pretense at protecting innocent lives is about to be cast off and the killing will become inexplicably worse as the Trump admin reportedly seeks to do away with a clause contained in the Presidential Policy Guidance known as “near certainty.” As 

In 2013, President Obama, who drastically increased the number of drone strikes during his tenure, delivered a speech in which he outlined the contours of new Presidential Policy Guidance, or PPG, making this principle abundantly clear. Henceforth, the decision to target and kill people outside “areas of active hostilities” would require a “near certainty” of no civilian casualties, and lethal force would only be used when capture was not feasible. In essence, the use of force in these limited circumstances would more closely approximate a law enforcement, rather than wartime, paradigm.
