The strange logic of US-led Coalition’s mistakes in Syria

Recently, the White House has repeatedly accused Syria and its allies of killing civilians in Aleppo, deliberate airstrikes at civilian infrastructure and so on. But it should be mentioned that usually these allegations are ungrounded. Along with this, Washington keeps carrying out notorious military ops resulting in casualties not among terrorists but mostly among civilians.

On October 25, Amnesty International published a statement according to which within two years at least 300 people were killed by the US-led coalition’s airstrikes.

Lynn Maalouf, Deputy Director at Amnesty International’s Beirut regional office, stated that analysis of available evidence suggests that in each of these cases, Coalition forces failed to take adequate precautions to minimize harm to civilians and damage to civilian objects.

Despite the fact that AI bases its assessments on the data received from Syrian human rights organizations, local monitoring organizations and satellite images and footages, an AI expert Neil Sammonds claimed that it was just statistics, there might be much more casualties.

Although John Kirby commented on the report, the US isn’t accustomed to recognizing its mistakes. For instance, the airstrike e.g. bloodbath conducted by the US-led coalition against government troops in Deir Ezzor in mid-September. After numerous excuses, Washington claimed then that it was a mistake. This “mistake” looked rather strange as ISIS militants started their offensive towards the Syrian army immediately after the airstrike.

Moreover, Lieutenant General Stephen J. Townsend, the commander of Operation Inherent Resolve, due to the Command’s strategic mistakes Iraq’s troops and their US-backed allies still haven’t been able to surround and block Mosul. But these lapses allow terrorists freely leave the city and penetrate into Syria. Of course, it would entail the creation of new hotbeds of tension in the country and endanger the lives of civilians.

Also in Mosul the coalition is doing the same things what Washington now and then tries to blame Damascus and its allies. Only in the last three days, the coalition airstrikes killed 60 civilians. Since October 21, the US aircraft conducted an airstrike against the school in the south of Mosul, the next day attacked residential neighborhoods in the east of the city, and on October 23, air strikes destroyed the house of civilians in northern Mosul.

Thus, with a high probability we can say that the United States, reporting on all the TV screens of the fiercest fighting terrorists, actually support them and are making every effort to implement its next cunning plan and plunge the country into endless chaos in Syria .
