Rights Groups Sound Alarm About Devastating Use of Incendiary Weapons in Syria

Nika Knight, staff writer

Human rights advocates are condemning the use of incendiary weaponry—including phosphorous bombs—in airstrikes conducted by the Syrian regime and the Russian government on the cities of Aleppo and Idlib on August 7.

Ah not finding out about this in other websites. Very little facts or importantly photos or video that connect Russia to these attacks. After so much bullshit attacking Russia these days I think the horizon on articles like this just jumped up quite a bit. Show us the evidence or buzz off.

"Most people in this city did not even originally want to overthrow the government," Sharif said.
Well Sharif, unfortunately for you and the rest of the poor dead souls, Hillary and the CIA had other ideas.
"We're just responding to the horrific acts by the government," he went on.
That's called being suckered, dear Sharif.
The CIA are master's of expanding wars and getting people killed.

International law "restricts" the use of incendiary weapons, it does not "ban" them.
Which is why the US could napalm the hell out of Vietnam.

If by "our allies" you mean Israel, etc., then I'm with you.


#7

There's an unwritten rule amongst all presidents which says that if you give Israel something then you have to give Saudi Arabia something too, and vice versa.
It's been that way since 1948.

You can bet your butt that it won't be a Wahhabi.


#10

And "we" used them in Iraq, too, and probably other places.


#11

The simple solution being. For the US and company. To stop arming, training and backing Islamic JIHADIST. That are there to overthrow the Syrian government. It appears Hitlery will continue this policy of US state sponsored terrorism in Syria. In Syria now over 400.000 dead and millions displaced. When will this carnage and madness end.


#12

They can't stop supplying weapons as this is how the US makes money. It is all about the MIC making money. The chaos that the US has spread in the middle east is all about making money for the MIC.

Incendiary weapons/white phosphorus, cluster munitions, DP munitions, land mines, fletchet weapons, drones - most all indiscriminate weapons , some banned, others warmonger states refuse to ban, often used against civilian populations, especially by our "special ally", with which we "have unbreakable bonds" - shackles really, chaining us to depraved racist indifference and contempt for the lives of others - the racist/terrorist state of Israel.

The arms industry/war-machine - manufacturers, suppliers and end users all interdependent, acting in concert to build, distribute, and use indiscriminate weapons for profit - gotta keep using to create demand for more! An "industry" that thrives, and is predicated, on the deaths and displacement of countless men, women and children, and destruction of civilian infrastructure, housing, farms, hospitals - life-sustaining endeavors destroyed for profits.

Can we not get the Syrian people to a safe area outside the war torn zone pronto, stat, immediately, right now? Provide the best care that money can buy, medical, mental health care, healthy food, clothes, shelter, schools, etc. All of this payed for by people like Bill Gates sitting on $75 billion. Bill Gates, and company your run is over, now it's time to cough up that money! Also, I don't want to hear any excuses that is his money, F that! It is time for the billion dollar class (almost 1,500 worldwide) to pay the bill!

Seismic shifts in Middle East alliances.
First Turkey. Now Iran and China.
"Uncle Sam's in a Helluva Jam .. Not since Viet Nam"

From ZeroHedge:

China Sides With Russia In Syrian War, Will Provide "Aid And Military Training" To Assad

For The First Time, Russian Strategic Bombers Strike ISIS From Iran's Hamadan Air Base

This article should point out the fact that the US uses these incendiary weapons.

When the Fourth Reich finally attacks its "Poland" and the rest of the world rises up to defeat it.
* The only problem is that the Fourth Reich is like the Third Reich on steroids. Larger, more powerful Wehrmacht, even more intrusive Gestapo, more powerful SA and SS, an even more powerful and intrusive Propaganda Ministry and, a vast nuclear arsenal.
* Unfortunately, if threatened, the Reich would not hesitate to use them, which would be responded to by other nations.
* Result? The End. Curtain down.

It's linked in the article. here, I extracted it for you:

Plus, if it was the US the title would be screaming something like "US backed coalition uses incendiary weapons is Syria" and not the passive voice "Rights Groups Sound Alarm About Devastating Use of Incendiary Weapons in Syria"


#19

This particular article is about Russia using incendiary weapon. You'll have to get your dose of US hate from another one. There's plenty around.


#20

Oh cluck off jerk. What I hate are _________ like you who couldn't care less about the fact that US foreign policy is responsible for mass slaughter of innocents every damn day.

Go sign up Johnny Jingo. I mean, why just keep ejaculating right wing screed when you can ejaculate hot lead instead?

Sorry Lamonte this link does not cut it. Sorry but you have been sucked into the propaganda.

Most reporting is by "Syria Civil Defense, an opposition search-and-rescue volunteer group, reported an incendiary weapon attack on the residential area in al-Mashhad in opposition-held east Aleppo city at around 4 p.m. on August 7 that injured a child." Most likely the "White Hats" part of the terrorists supported by the US for propaganda.

SCD was unable to determine the nature of the weapon used but we know for a fact that it was highly flammable.

Video and photos recorded at the time of attack and afterward of the remnants show the use of RBK-500 ZAB-2.5SM bombs, an incendiary weapon that delivers 117 ZAB-2.5SM incendiary submunitions. The witness accounts and visual evidence confirm this was an incendiary weapon attack. Where are these photos?

This is video of an incendiary cluster bomb https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=y9yxc97LDLU
As you can see there is much to photograph for evidence if there is any.

SCD says "I only saw the plane when it launched the first missile. I think it was Russian. And it was just one plane." The RBK-500 is a bomb not a missile. Know the difference? The article says "The ZAB-2.5SM submunitions delivered by RBK-500 bombs contain a small bursting charge to ignite the flammable substance as they are released from the bomb in mid-air." So was it a missile or bomb?

http://su-27flanker.com/weapon/rbk-500/ Variant 2 – weight: 2.5g; incendiary composition: thermite; approx. burn time: 120 – 180 seconds. The article says people witnessed phosphorus but the RBK-500 is themite.
"The fire was vast, spreading hundreds of meters, difficult to put out.
It reacted with water so we had to use other material, like foam and
powder, even gravel. It was huge, it required immense efforts to extinguish. " Burn time 120-180 seconds.

So let's talk about what is real. The US terrorists have lost control of Aleppo. It is surrounded on three sides by Syrian army. The western side has a 10,000 strong US terrorist army trying to retake the city. They have USA incendiary artillery shells which the attack probably was.

The article you point out says "The majority of witness accounts collected by Human Right Watch and video evidence indicate that fixed-wing jet aircraft and helicopters have been used to deliver air-dropped incendiary weapons in Syria." If you were paying attention you would know that the Russians just lost a helicopter to a USA surface to air missile and for now Russia is not using helicopters or flying low over targets.

So basically you just got really suckered by propaganda USA. Its okay you are not alone.

Hey, why don't you issue your own press release? Seems like these guys have no idea what they are doing. By the way, stay safe there. You are on site aren't you?

I am just another American terrorist. Aren't we all.
