US Bombs Syria’s Idlib Rebels

Its old battering ram of the Highly Moral liberal jihad against Assad

Editor’s note: Yes, the US has bombed both the Syrian government and the Syrian rebels. Hell, the US has both backed and bombed the rebels.

In fact, in the 4-sided civil war between the government, rebels, ISIS and Kurds, the US has backed as well as bombed the rebels, backed the Kurds against ISIS and abandoned them against rebels and Turkey, bombed the government and indirectly aided it by bombing ISIS and the rebels and passing on targeting intelligence on the rebels to the Russians to be passed on to Damascus, and bombed ISIS as well as rooted for it against the government. It all depends on the day of the week and the bureaucracy in question (Pentagon, CIA, State Department).


The US on Monday carried out an airstrike near Idlib in northwest Syria, according to US Central Command (CENTCOM).

While President Biden has bombed Syria, this appears to be the first US airstrike in northwest Syria since he’s assumed office. CENTCOM claims the strike targeted a “senior al-Qaeda leader” and that “initial indications” show the US hit the individual it was targeting.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the strike hit a vehicle carrying a militant from one of the radical groups in the region and killed at least one person. The Observatory didn’t name the group but said it was affiliated with al-Qaeda.

Starting in 2019, the US has carried out several drone strikes in northwest Syria against Hurras al-Din, an al-Qaeda-affiliated militia. Hurras al-Din is an offshoot and rival of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), another al-Qaeda affiliate that is the dominant faction in Idlib.

Idlib is essentially under Turkish protection, and the US tacitly endorses HTS by supporting Turkey in Syria. In recent years, HTS has gained favorable coverage by Western media despite its al-Qaeda affiliation. The favorable press is due partially to the fact that HTS has fought against Hurras al-Din.

One (1) bad guy! And no women and children! The same intelligence morons that couldn’t distinguish jugs of water from explosives in Afghanistan…. wonder how they knew this was a bad guy,,, did he drop his passport when getting in the vehicle read by a satellite 200 miles in the sky?

And a several thousands of fedbux per missile for one bad guy. No wonder they’re losing the wars…. the only winner here was Raytheon… or whoever sells war toys to the pentagram.
