Syria condemns American air strikes - So what?

 

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria said U.S. air strikes against Iranian-backed militias in the east of the country on Friday were a cowardly act and urged President Joe Biden not to follow "the law of the jungle"....

"Syria condemns in the strongest terms the cowardly U.S. attack on areas in Deir al-Zor near the Syrian-Iraqi border," the Syrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"It (the Biden administration) is supposed to stick to international legitimacy, not to the law of the jungle as (did) the previous administration."

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the U.S. strikes, calling them "illegal aggression" and a violation of human rights and international law.

"You can't act with impunity. Be careful," Biden told reporters in Texas when asked what message he was sending Iran with the strikes.

The above reuters report is a reflection of the pathetic fate of the Arab states in general and Syria in particular. All the condemnations are useless if you are weak and afraid or unable to hit back. Where were all the SAMs, why nothing was fired to take down the bombers? Or the SAMs were so useless and missed all their targets? Why no anti aircraft weapons to defend their positions?

The bottom line, if Syria, Iran or Arab countries dare not strike back, the Americans would keep hitting them like Biden said, with impunity. And the Russians were in Syria. If the Syrians or Iranians dare not, or did not have the capability to bring down the bombers, why were the Russians not doing anything? The Russians also afraid of the Americans?

The ridiculous situation in Syria is that the Americans and the Russians had an agreement not to strike at each other but only at the Syrians, the Arabs and the Iranians, while protecting their turf in Syria. If Syria wants to be safe, it has to get the Russians to agree to declare the whole of Syria a no fly zone and any aircraft not authorised to be there would be shot down. Only then can Syria and its forces be safe from American and Israeli air strikes.

If they just relied on their mouths and words to yell at the Americans, it would be a waster of time and very silly and unproductive. The Americans would strike the with impunity as and when they like it. The only language the evil Americans understood is force, to hit back hard at the Americans if the Syrians want the Americans to stop their air strikes.

After having bombed Syria and caused tens of deaths, SoS Blinken tweeted for release of HK pro-democracy protesters as they were exercising their democratic rights. Before that, he and Biden had termed China's treatment of the Uyghers as 'genocide' Only for people who can stomach the American hubris, hypocrisy exceptionism. Maybe China could also call for the release of those involved in the Capitol 'insurrection" as those people were also protecting US Democracy.

If there is a God, he is definitely blind to let the evil Americans going around starting wars and killing innocent people with immunity.

At the moment no country strong enough to stop the Americans from starting wars and killing the innocent.
