Syria: US ally’s razing of villages amounts to war crimes

WASHINGTON - A fact-finding mission to northern Syria has uncovered a wave of forced displacement and home demolitions amounting to war crimes carried out by the Autonomous Administration led by the Syrian Kurdish political party Partiya Yekîtiya Demokrat (PYD) controlling the area, said Amnesty International in a report published today. The Autonomous Administration is a key ally, on the ground, of the US-led coalition fighting against the armed group calling itself the Islamic State (IS) in Syria.

Please tell me when the US has ever cared one wit about international law, the Geneva Conventions (quaint) or their commission of war crimes? I can tell you that the answer is never! When torture is used by Americans it suddenly becomes "enhanced interrogation", when civilians are murdered by drone or bombing it becomes "collateral damage", when American military planes destroy a hospital it suddenly is someone else's fault! The World is sick to death of America's murderous rampages. Enough is enough!
