(AHT) — On Friday, the pro-opposition “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” activist group released an infographic claiming that 946 civilians had been killed and 1000 others had been injured as a result of US-led coalition airstrikes since the beginning of Raqqa city battle on June 9, the South Front reported.

The Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently also claimed that US-led coalition warplanes had conducted 1267 airstrikes on targets in Raqqa city so far.

At least 30,000 civilians are still trapped inside Raqqa city, according to the Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently infographic.

Meanwhile, local sources from Raqqa city claimed that US-led coalition airstrikes had killed no less than 100 civilians in the last 72 hours. US-led coalition warplanes allegedly conducted 53 airstrikes on Raqqa city in the last 48 hours.

Airwars has also released it’s own estimates of the civilian casualties in Raqqa.

Airwars is a collaborative, not-for-profit transparency project aimed both at tracking and archiving the international air war against so-called “Islamic State” and other groups in Iraq, Syria and Libya.

Airwars researchers tracked 175 civilian casualty events – just 6% less than the all-time-high seen in June. This represented 90% of all incidents in both Iraq and Syria during July. However, likely civilian deaths from Coalition actions in Syria still fell by 29% compared to June. According to Airwars’ current assessments, between 294 and 456 non-combatants were likely killed in Syria during July. The estimates show 780 civilians killed by US-led coalition in June and July.

The majority of these incidents took place in Raqqa, where the SDF made slow but important gains amid fierce resistance from ISIS and heavy air support from the coalition. A 32% decrease in munitions fired in Raqqa also saw likely civilian deaths fall by 33% in the governorate.

Meanwhile, July saw a 41% rise in casualty events allegedly perpetrated by the Russian Air Force in Syria, where 65 incidents were tracked during the month. The majority of these events occurred in Deir Ezzor and Raqqa governorates. Yet despite this escalation in Russian actions, there were still three times as many casualty events attributed to the Coalition in Iraq and Syria as there were to Russia in Syria. This is now the seventh consecutive month that Moscow’s own bombing campaign has been overshadowed by casualty events reportedly the responsibility of the US and its allies.

W.Churchill

W. Churchill in 1943 (1874-1965)

Foto: gestul VICTORIEI el l-a inventat si l-a impus.

Sa nu uitam ca Prim ministrul din timpul celui de-al doilea razb.mondial a luptat singur impotriva tututror pentru continuarea luptei impotriva Germaniei, in timp ce toti voiau sa  abandoneze tara.
A spus ca tara nu merita asta.
În anii ’30, Churchill a avertizat parlamentul de pericolul reprezentat de Germania Nazistă și campania sa de reînarmare. La izbucnirea celui de-Al Doilea Război Mondial, a fost numit din nou Prim Lord al Admirității. După demisia lui Neville Chamberlain la data de 10 mai 1940, Churchill a devenit prim-ministru. Refuzul constant de a accepta înfrângerea, predarea, sau un compromis pentru pace a ajutat Marea Britanie în prima parte a războiului când Marea Britanie era singura țară activ implicată împotriva lui Hitler. Churchill este cunoscut pentru discursurile și emisiunile radiofonice despre război. A condus Marea Britanie ca prim-ministru până la asigurarea victoriei împotriva Germaniei Naziste.
Nu a facut promisiuni desarte. A spus ca :

N-am nimic de oferit decât sânge, muncă, lacrimi şi sudoare. … În timp de război, adevărul este prea preţios pentru a i se permite să circule fără a fi însoţit de un cortegiu de minciuni.

.
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill a fost un om politic britanic, prim-ministru al Regatului Unit în al Doilea Război Mondial.
Deseori apreciat ca fiind unul din cei mai mari lideri de război ai secolului, a servit ca prim-ministru în două mandate (1940-1945) și (1951-1955). A fost ofițer în Armata Britanică, istoric, scriitor și artist. Este singurul prim-ministru britanic laureat al Premiului Nobel pentru Literatură (în 1953) și a fost prima persoană care a primit titlul onorific de Cetățean de Onoare al Statelor Unite.
Churchill s-a născut pe 30 noiembrie 1874 în familia aristocrată a Ducilor de Marlborough. Tatăl său, Lord Randolph Churchill, a fost un politician carismatic care a îndeplinit funcția de ministru de Finanțe. Mama sa, Jenny Jerome, a fost o americancă beneficiară a unei poziții sociale importante.

Prin acest articol am vrut sa fac o paralela intre adevaratul om de stat si actualii nostrii decidenti, dar nu mi-a iesit. Personalitatea acestui prim ministru este coplesitoare si  orice  atingere si punerea in paralel cu toti  neistravitii, este o blasfemie si chiar hilara.

    Reuters
    Syria’s army and its allies have encircled an Islamic State (IS) pocket in central Syria after a series of advances in the desert region, state media, a Hezbollah military media unit and a war monitor said on Friday. President Bashar al-Assad’s military has advanced against Islamic State along two prongs towards Deir al-Zor province this year, leaving a large jihadist salient stretching back west between them. Its forces have now cut off part of that salient with a pincer movement, enclosing a large Islamic State enclave around the village of Uqairabat, the state news agency SANA reported. Read More
