Putin calls for investigation into strikes on civilians in Syria

“As for crimes, go back to Raqqa and at least bury the dead bodies”

RT | March 10, 2018

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said there should be an investigation into the massive airstrikes on residential areas in Syria’s Raqqa. Putin pointed out that the dead are still unburied and corpses are lying in the ruins.

“As for crimes, go back to Raqqa and at least bury the dead bodies, which are still lying amid the ruins after the air strikes on residential neighborhoods – and investigate these attacks,” the Russian leader said as he sat down for an “at times combative” interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly. Putin also raised the point that the battle for Iraq’s Mosul involving the US-led forces left the city “razed to the ground.”

The interview heated up when the two were speaking about Syria, when the anchor asked about alleged chemical attacks, for which the West blames the Syrian government. Those claims were rebuffed as “fake news” by the Russian leader. Putin stressed that Damascus destroyed its stockpile of chemical weapons long ago, and the militants aimed “to simulate chemical attacks” which were then blamed on the Syrian army.

“All the attempts that have been made repeatedly in the recent past, and all the accusations were used to consolidate the efforts against Assad,” Putin told the journalist. As Kelly continued to ask about alleged chemical attacks that led to civilian deaths, Putin noted that there had been no thorough investigation into what had happened in Syria.

“Russia is for a full-scale investigation. If you do not know this, I am telling you this now. It is not true that we are against an objective investigation. That is a lie.”

  1. I find President Putin credible. I find nearly no American official (or MSM rep/whore like Kelly) credible. What a shame to have to write such conclusions that are founded on the machinations that I witness and analyze every day….

  2. The credibility of the Western Press/MSM is in tatters. If you’re old enough to remember the American War in Vietnam you will remember it being portrayed as the “Free and Democratic USA” fighting the Evil of communism, which was determined to impose itself on “Freedom and Democracy”. It turned out to be Bullshit.

    Look at the Anglo/American war on Iraq. Iraq had “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, and was a threat to anyone/everyone. It turned out to be Bullshit.

    Look at the ISIS/ISIL/Daesh war on Syria, with America “defending Syria” from the forces of Evil…It turned out to be Bullshit.
    Look at the destruction of Libya by the USA/Britain. It hardly was mentioned in any detail by the MSM, and Hillary declared that “We came, We saw, He died” and then giggled like a schoolgirl. It was Bullshit.

    If you reach/watch ANYTHING in the Western Media/MSM, regard it as Bullshit. It’s the only way that the Villains can get away with what they do…..Every time.
