On orders of dictator Biden, the US military has launched an airstrike on a facility in Syria. As of this writing the exact number of killed and injured is unknown, with early reports claiming “a handful” of people were killed.

The corrupted Biden administration conducted an airstrike against alleged Iranian-linked fighters in Syria on Thursday, signaling its intent to use violence showing itself to be following in the footsteps of the hostile next door Israeli regime.

Joe Biden’s Syrian airstrikes were hailed by CNN as a masterstroke of diplomacy, delivered with a scalpel instead of a sledgehammer. Delivered on Thursday by two F-15 fighter jets, the airstrikes knocked out several facilities the Pentagon says were used by Iranian-backed militias in Syria

So we are being told that the United States launched an airstrike on Syria, a nation it invaded and is illegally occupying, because of attacks on “US locations” in Iraq, another nation the US invaded and is illegally occupying?

This attack is justified on the basis that the Iraqi fighters were “Iranian-linked,” a claim that is both entirely without evidence and irrelevant to the justification of deadly military force. And this is somehow being framed in mainstream news publications as a defensive operation.

This is Defense Department stenography. The US military is an invading force in both Syria and Iraq, it is impossible for its actions in either of those countries to be defensive!

It is always necessarily the aggressor. It’s the people trying to eject them who are acting defensively. The deaths of US troops and contractors in those countries can only be blamed on the powerful people who sent them there.

The US regime is just taking it as a given that it has de facto jurisdiction over the nations of Syria, Iraq, and Iran, and that any attempt to interfere in its authority in the region is an unprovoked attack which must be defended against?

This is completely backwards and illegitimate. Only through the most perversely warped American supremacist reality tunnels can it look valid to dictate the affairs of sovereign nations on the other side of the planet and respond with violence if anyone in those nations tries to eject them.

It’s illegitimate for the US to be in the Middle East at all. It’s illegitimate for the US to claim to be acting defensively in nations it invaded.

It’s illegitimate for the US to act like Iranian-backed fighters aren’t allowed to be in Syria, where they are fighting alongside the Syrian government against ISIS and other extremist militias with the permission of Damascus.

It is illegitimate for the US to claim the fighters attacking US personnel in Iraq are controlled by Iran when Iraqis have every reason to want the USA out of their country themselves.

This is all so very typical of the American supremacist worldview that is being aggressively shoved down our throats by all Western mainstream news media.

The US can bomb who it likes, whenever it likes, and when it does it is only ever doing so in self-defense, because the entire planet is the property of Washington, DC.

It can seize control of entire clusters of nations, and if any of those nations resist in any way, they are invading America’s sovereignty.

It’s like if you broke into your neighbor’s house to rob him, killed him when he tried to stop you, and then claimed self-defense because you consider his home your property. Only in the American exceptional alternate universe is this considered normal and acceptable.

As long as the United States functions as the hub of a globe-spanning power structure, all the progressive agendas that are being sought by what passes for the US left these days will be denied them. Opposing warmongering must come first.

The Pentagon described the strikes as “defensive” in nature, and as a response to rocket attacks on US and coalition troops in Iraq. A militia spokesman said one fighter was killed and several wounded.

Standing against imperialism and American supremacy cuts directly to the heart of our difficulties in this world, which is why so much energy goes into keeping us focused on identity politics and vapid energy sucks which inconvenience the powerful in no way whatsoever.

If you want to out-wrestle a crocodile, you must bind shut its mouth. If you want to take down a globe-spanning empire, you must take out its weapons. Opposing warmongering and killing public trust in the propaganda used to justify it is the best way to do this.

The recent US airstrikes on Iran-backed militias in Syria has shown that Washington is seeking to “revive” terrorism in the region and support now-shattered Islamic State

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. America is a fake democracy, and it’s not possible to change the US Empire by voting in rigged elections. In the US, the only way to change “our” government is to arm ourselves and overthrow it by force. I’m not suggesting a course of action – I’m simply acknowledging a fact.

The US had bombed the sites to defuse tensions in the Middle East and that “At the same time, they have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to deescalate the overall situation in eastern Syria and Iraq. Spokesperson Kirby clearly doesn’t have the intelligence to understand that his own words are cognitively dissonant and make zero sense
