Washington is “theoretically” ready to take responsibility for the death of civilians in Syria as a result of an air strike

Washington is going to investigate the circumstances of the airstrikes of the US Air Force and its allies, which resulted in the death of 19 civilians in the area of ​​the Syrian city of Manbij 56 July, reports NEWSru With reference to the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samantha Power.


Washington is “theoretically” ready to take responsibility for the death of civilians in Syria as a result of an air strike


According to her, the United States is "theoretically" ready to take responsibility for the results of the investigation.

“If we determine that civilians were injured in Manbidge as a result of our strikes, then we recognize this and see what steps can be taken in accordance with the policy that President Barack Obama announced at July 1 concerning the actions taken response to civilian casualties in US operations, ”said Power.

She noted that "the United States will carefully and thoroughly review all of the credible information that we will be able to gather on the incident, including from organizations within Syria that document civilian casualties and are also now trying to investigate these events."

However, the investigation, according to her, is complicated by the fact that "Syrian civil society groups have limited access to the territories controlled by the Islamic State." However, "the United States is determined to do everything possible and understand what happened," said Power.

The Russian permanent representative, Vitaly Churkin, in turn, expressed concern that Washington would sweep the investigation of air strikes under the carpet. He criticized the words of Power about some "civil society groups".

“That is, there are no American drones, no American special forces in Syria, no special forces of American allies, no United States satellite reconnaissance capabilities, no videos in the end that all modern bombers make when they strike?” I would not like to believe that the military state of the coalition led by the US is so pitiable. This reference to civil society makes me think that we will never know the truth, that everything will be swept under the carpet ",
Churkin declared.

Earlier, the representative of Syria to the United Nations, Bashar Jaafari, accused the French Air Force of bombing local residents, who, in his words, avenged a terrorist attack in Nice.

“The IS militants were indeed in this village (Al-Tukhar near the town of Manbij), but left it after learning that French President Francois Hollande had promised to avenge what happened in Nice,” Jaafari added.

    But practically ...
    In practice, they will prepare another unproven throw-in and transfer the arrows to the videoconferencing.
    And what will the "specialist" from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights say: comrade fugitive Syrian - Osama Ali Suleiman? Somewhere it, this society, hid ... Or the command "face", has not yet entered ...
    Disorder: Power is "forced" to talk nonsense about "civil society groups" ...

        Yes, they have been going for a long time, they just try not to notice them. They only cover the large ones that cause public resonance. Such as in Germany or France. Previously, for sexual harassment in the EU and the USA, a real term could be received, but now parents in EU countries are afraid letting children go. It's useless to contact the police.

    These words are empty talk. Similar cases were full before in Iraq and Afghanistan. What changed? Just what happened now is in Syria.

    This Jaafari is also an intellectual. Right like this - the militants in this village heard Hollande, they got scared and for some reason left the village.

    Yes, they don’t care how much and how many civilians were killed ... this is a criminal machine ... the invasion of Iraq - well, we made a mistake ... millions of people died and they ... were wrong ... Libya ... Afghanistan. .. Yugoslavia ... ERRORS ???
    These are crimes worthy of an international tribunal.

      I completely agree, only an international independent tribunal can put an end to this. But for this it is necessary to win the war with them, as with Germany in 1945.

    I would, in place of the Syrians, start to bring down Americans and Europeans in response. Violated airspace - open fire! The account of the destroyed planes should go to hundreds as in Vietnam. Then ours delivered to the Vietnamese about 10 of thousands of C-75 missiles, with which they shot down about 3 of thousands of aircraft.

    Yesterday, Euronews accused us of bombing a hospital in Aleppo. I will not, unless in a week it turns out that these were American bombs. But a loud statement has been made, time has passed, sediments will remain on ours. The whole point of American politics.

    Fuck, no other words. 56 people then died, and how many we have (in the Donbass). Something we began to get used to death.

    59 people died. So what? They still kill each other there. In general, they are Muslims and latent terrorists.
    It didn’t happen in Europe. Not a single German, French, or Spaniard was hurt. Even second-rate Poles and Lithuanians are all safe and clean toilets in the City.
    So no mourning, Charlie is busy with other problems, in the Air Force the stronghold of democracy will severely punish the junior assistant of the spare janitor (they will forbid eating hamburgers for a couple of days)
    Well, a little wrong person, with whom doesn’t it happen? Americans can be accidentally killed. They bring democracy and freedom.

    But I wonder what would happen if, for example, a US plane mistakenly demolishes a town / village in America itself?
    I dare to assume that: The Minister of Defense is no longer the Minister that day, the Air Force Commander surrenders his cap and, henceforth, wears a cap without a service pension. And people 4-5-6-7 go for different periods to comfortable American prisons. At least three days of national mourning can not be remembered.

    Because "It is always the fault of the one who has been poured with mud - in the end to wash it off!" And until our propagandists understand this, we will always be to blame for everything. It is necessary to be proactive, also applying the amerskoy formula "We have evidence, but we will not show it." For example (on trifles), accuse the same Power of stealing toilet paper in the UN building, and Obama of cannibalism.

    "French President Francois Hollande promised to take revenge for what happened in Nice"

    This French "overgrown broiler", before promising, would remember from which country he was
    terrorist who staged a massacre in Nice! And where are the Syrians?
    And what will happen in France if the Syrians decide to avenge the victims of the bombing!
    Fool! although the president.

    The United States will carefully and carefully consider all the credible information that we can collect on this incident, including from organizations within Syria that document civilian casualties and are now also trying to investigate these events.

    First, we will inflict a bombing strike, and then we will document (!) Civilian casualties and will now "also (!?) try (!) To investigate these events."
    Delusions of Harvard idiots.
