From Moon of Alabama:
The U.S. “regime change” operation in Syria recently tallied up some major successes.
The Syrian Democratic Force, a U.S. sponsored group of mostly Syrian Kurds, is besieging the Islamic State held eastern city of Manbij. According to the UN’s Human Rights commissioner 70,000 civilians in Manbij are cut off from all supplies. We have yet to hear calls for an immediate breaking of the siege or for enforced air drops of supplies to these people. Where are all the R2P fans in the Obama administration and all the well paid Syrian opposition propaganda groups on this? That the U.S. has managed to avoid any questions about this siege is surely a success.
Instead of delivering food the U.S. did some different air drops on Marjib:
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the dead included 11 children, and that dozens more people were wounded.
The CIA finances a long of proxy groups in Syria to fight the Syrian government and the millions of people its protects. It has delivered high powered TOW anti-tank weapons to many of these groups:
According to the BBC Foreign News producer Riam Dalati it is a group of these Nour al-Din al-Zenki “moderate rebels” who yesterday captured a Palestinian boy of some 10, maybe 12 years, taunted him and accused him of fighting on the Syrian government’s side. The boy had no uniform on and had medical infusion tubes in his right arm.
This shows again that the Obama administration has done nothing, or at least not …
