In U.S. Marine General John Allen (Ret.) speech at the Democrat National Convention (DNC) he very clearly and emphatically stated that when Hillary becomes Commander in Chief…
“OUR ARMED FORCES WILL NOT BECOME AN INSTRUMENT OF TORTURE AND THEY WILL NOT BE ENGAGED IN MURDER OR CARRY OUT OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.”
Oh, he must mean like what’s happening in Syria right now (see below)? Why would he be criticizing Obama’s handling of ISIS in Syria at the DNC? Obama is the national leader of the Democrat Party. Hillary has been chosen to perpetuate his legacy. So why is General Allen disapproving of things that are happening in Syria NOW at the instruction of our leaders NOW (Obama)? Good question. But I don’t have an answer.
Hillary is counting on coasting on Obama’s coattails. And she’s counting on the media code of silence that refuses to question Democrat double-speak. We’re breaking that code!
Our Middle East Correspondent, Cheri Berens reported this from Egypt on Friday:
The U.S. conducted airstrikes over an ISIS controlled area of Aleppo yesterday (July 28). The airstrikes killed at least 25 civilians and injured at least 100 other civilians.
The U.S. airstrikes hit the densely populated village of Aghanndorh, which is near the ISIS base camp of Menbeij. Why didn’t they just hit the ISIS base camp? Residential homes suffered major damage, as well as the town’s public buildings.
Many children and elderly were killed in the airstrikes (I have photos, but they are too graphic).
What bothers me is that this has happened before – US airstrikes hitting civilian targets.
I do not understand why it is that Russia uses pinpoint targeting, hits their mark, and does not kill civilians when they target ISIS nests, training camps, bases, weapons stockpiles, etc. But about 50% of the time when the US conducts airstrikes, they hit hospitals, civilian areas, Syrian Army military bases, and not ISIS.
The U.S. reports that they are fighting ISIS, but reports from the area do not substantiate that information. Obama is currently hitting civilian targets when we have the technology to execute ISIS with pinpoint precision. Does anyone really think that a Hillary Administration will be any different?
