The insular self-absorbed US-centrism of all but a couple of the comments here - which are not just off-topic - but are engaging in open revolt against the blood-soaked topic of this article, is disgusting.
Why are you all here refusing to acknowledge the topic of this article - which is the latest vile atrocity by Assad with help from his good friend Putin? A psychologist could write a dissertation on the willful cognitive blindness exhibited by the commenters here
Might it occur to you that, while the US may do a lot of bad things, there are also some very vile individuals, who even, just occasionally, can outdo the US in atrociousness - and Assad is one of those individuals? (The Burmese regime and that Nobel Prize winning blood soaked petite lady Suu Chi being the other ones).
It is the vile Assad and his thugs who are slaughtering yet more Syrians - many of them fellow leftists and their families who have been resisting this monster since 2011, for fucking crying out loud! Yet, but the commenters here obsessively talk about the USA !?!? WTF???
The fellow leftists who rose up against Assad and at stupendous human cost are still resisting Assad are on OUR side, repeat, OUR side - the international left!
The absolute callousness of you “leftists for Assad” and the need to cling to your absurd conspiratorial comic-bookish religious creeds:
“USA, the sole Bogeyman of the universe!!!”
“Assad is a hero defending his country from US imperialism”, and previously,
“The white hat rescue squads of Aleppo are just propaganda stooges of the USA!”;
while you callously ignore the human lives and suffering makes me want to puke!
JUST STOP IT!!!
