US accuses Britain of striking civilians in Syria and Iraq

The US-led international coalition against the Islamic State banned in Russia has accused the British Air Force of striking civilians in Syria and Iraq, resulting in numerous casualties. About it writes The Times.


According to a U.S. coalition report, there is credible evidence that British air strikes in Iraq and Syria resulted in civilian deaths. However, the British Ministry of Defense denied these allegations, arguing that for six years of air strikes, the British Air Force accidentally killed only one civilian.

In total, as stated in the UK Ministry of Defense, more than 1700 air strikes were carried out in Syria and Iraq, as a result of which more than 4 thousand Islamists were destroyed and about 300 militants were injured.

Representatives of the Joint Joint Task Force disagree with the British, they continue to insist that for six years the British Air Force’s air strikes “unintentionally killed” 15 civilians, and not one civilian.

According to the non-profit organization Airwars, since 2014, nearly 30 thousand civilians have died in Iraq and Syria. At the same time, a coalition led by the United States admitted its responsibility for the death of 1300 civilians, most of whom were victims of American air raids.

We always strive to minimize the risk of civilian casualties through our rigorous goal setting approach. But this risk can never be completely eliminated. Especially given the ruthless and inhuman behavior of the enemy, who among other things specifically uses people as a human shield

- said the British Ministry of Defense.

          How is it possible? They are white and fluffy, they are only busy with running around for civilians and forcibly distributing humanitarian aid to them, and they (residents) are “ungrateful” for this kindness, their mattress bases for some reason are bombarded with missiles. request

          As usual, the title of the article does not quite correspond to the original. Feet grows from Times article: where it is written about "Unintentional" the killing of civilians in Iraq and Syria by the British Air Force
          "... There is credible evidence that British air strikes in Iraq and Syria led to the unintentional loss of civilian life. This statement was made by the US-led military coalition that is fighting the Islamic State *, The Times writes.
          "This assessment contradicts the claims of the UK Ministry of Defense that in the six years of the operation, the British army killed only one civilian. According to official statistics, more than 4 Islamists were killed and about 300 militants were injured by the Royal Air Force in these two Middle Eastern countries. .
          But representatives of the Joint Joint Task Force insist that the data they receive paint a different picture. According to them, only as a result of three airstrikes in Syria and Iraq, the British Air Force "inadvertently killed" 15 civilians. London admits that its Air Force carried out the three raids mentioned in the investigation. But he denies that civilians could be among these “successfully hit targets”. Moreover, the British authorities cite their own report and insist that the dead "with a high probability" were militants of the IG.

          In general, no one is blaming anyone. Civilians died - nothing terrible, because this is not intentional. Yes, and all of them for 6 years, 15 people fool The data of the international coalition led by the USA and Britain just vary. The British, instead of proof, as always, have a likes.
          The meaning of the Times article is that simple killers of civilians in Syria and Iraq cover and block each other

      Not 1 but 15.
      For 6 years.

      This is the argument of the "gentlemen":
      “You're in great shape, sir.”
      - No, my form is not beautiful, it is magnificent!
      - No, I think it’s still beautiful.

      This is a propaganda technique. So that no one would think that killed civilians could go into the hundreds or thousands.

      Well, the fact that the United States put a little pressure on its allies is explained, probably simply - in the press of European states, including the British, materials about crimes of the US Army in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan are increasingly timidly slipping ..... even the International Tribunal tried to tackle until the Americans crushed him ....
      here the honest Americans are switching arrows to their equally honest allies.
      Although what to translate? The historical experience of maintaining a database is the same for them, that’s what they’re used to over the centuries ....
      The matter will not go further than media hassle.
      By the way, this all resembles the Germans' attempts to otmazatsya from the deliberate destruction of Soviet citizens:
      Wehrmacht - this is not us - this is SS
      The SS is not us, we are the grune of the SS, and war crimes were committed by the Schwartz SS
      The Schwartz SS is not us, it is Bandera, the Baltic states, the zmagars, the Craiova Army and other national formations of Soviet traitors
      Bandera-and what have we got to do with it, we finally fought against the Germans for our nenka, and the bloody gebnya repressed people along with Soviet partisans ....

      Vicious circle. All of them are oiled in one world.

    This is most likely not a mistake in accusing the British, but the incomplete information that was brought to us. Most likely, the US report said that the British killed 15 people, the Americans themselves "2" people, but the Russians and the Syrians killed "... thousands of civilians." Hypocrisy America does not hold.

    Only it seems to me that everything needs to be multiplied by 10? Maybe 20?
    Those who look at the world through Kipling are allowed to smile and rob the idiots who themselves brought their gold into their banks.
    Nothing has changed since the moment when the British hung up undisputed orphans and simply beggars. Their democracy also did not become communism. thumps, and the queen sprinkles sand architectural monuments that are older than her home for millennia.
    I was sincerely afraid that we would also tear toilet paper in stores.
    He was right, but only carrots and cereals))) Complete nonsense, but this is the psychology of the crowd. The crowd is terrifying of its understanding of life. Someone understands this, sets her direction and she turns into an instrument.
    Of course, to control the crowd, charisma is not enough. This is art and money. And money, first of all.
    I applaud standing.
    To myself)))))

    Simple arithmetic: 30000 -1300 (americos) - 15 (shaving) = 28685 people (other members of the coalition)
