IHCHR: 11,800 Civilians Killed In US-Led Air Strikes in Syria, Iraq

Brett Wilkins

Nearly 12,000 civilians have been killed by U.S.-led air strikes in Iraq and Syria since 2014, according to a statement from the Iraqi High Commission for Human Rights.

IHCHR spokesman Dr. Ali A. Al-Bayati said on Saturday that “about 11,800 civilians, including 2,300 children and 1,130 women, were killed in addition to 8,000 wounded by the bombing of the coalition in Iraq and Syria.”

America in the 21st Century: “Holocausts Are Us!”

Do nations still pay war reparations? If Not—maybe if they had to, we would have fewer insane wars. If using depleted uranium is illegal— then why can the U.S. and Israel do it—and with no consequences? Seeing the babies in Iraq born with internal organs on the outside of their bodies-----and knowing that depleted uranium is ILLEGAL----- why do we have a UN and pretend that it does anything? Sometimes I wish aliens from outer space would come to Earth—and scare humans into learning to get along. : (

Tulsi Gabbard is the only candidate with the courage to stand up for peace and here we can see her totally disrespected by the harpies on The View. That is the mindset of the corporate elite ruling class: War is good, we do good things when we kill, it is just fine for others to die, regime change for resources is worth the price and to oppose that is not acceptable or even worth discussing.

The “show” is very painful to watch.

States pay “reparations” when they lose, not when they damage other states. In another day, this was called “tribute.”

Lancet scored over a million dead in the Iraq as early as 2006. Wilkins’ points are generally well taken here, but there is no reason to take these figures for granted.

Hats off to Col. Francois-Regis Legrier for his probably tardy observation, but it’s a wonder that these events have not given a more disgusting image of what Westerners might pretend is liberation to the West itself.

Thank you for the Tulsi Gabbard comment about her courage to stand up for peace.
I will vote for her in the primaries if no other candidate does better in demanding peace.
Our military is the biggest consumer of fossil fuels and polluter of water and soil on earth right now!

Hi bardamu----- they pay reparations only when they lose? But didn’t America pay Japanese -American citizens for what was stolen from them in in WW 2? Although it wasn’t very much to replace the actual losses and it took a long time.
If nations pay only when they lose—is that why America can’t leave the ME?
