U.S. Is Killing More Civilians In Syrian War Than Assad Is

Monitor says US-led coalition killed at least 225 civilians in past month, surpassing 146 civilian deaths caused by Syrian government strikes.

A U.S. airstrike struck pro-Syrian government forces for the first time, hitting a convoy in the desert near the border with Jordan, U.S. officials and Syrian activists said, an apparent signal to President Bashar Assad to keep his forces out of a zone where U.S.-backed rebels are fighting the Islamic State group.

By: AntiWar ? Exemplified by the hundred and some odd people they?ve killed in the last 48 hours, the US is struggling mightily with the narrative that they are taking extraordinary care to limit the number of civilian casualties in the air war in Syria, and are rapidly losing any pretense of a moral high ground.

Indeed, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is noting that the soaring death toll from US airstrikes has now surpassed the civilian toll of the Assad government?s own airstrikes, which the US and other Western nations have condemned as indiscriminate and irresponsible.

Oftentimes, US officials have been so outraged at Syria?s ?indiscriminate? air strikes that they?ve demanded regime change, and has railed at Russia and Iran for tolerating their tactics in bombing civilian targets.
