Does the rest of the world point and laugh, scratch their head in puzzlement, or silently rage at the hypocrisy of it all when the U.S. government makes completely un-self aware statements like this?
Washington quickly criticized the airstrikes [in Syria by Russia] — warning that they bring added risks to Syria — but said Moscow’s moves would not change a U.S.-led air campaign targeting Islamic State strongholds in Syria.
Carter said there was a “logical contradiction” in Russia’s aim of fighting terrorism in Syria while also supporting the Assad regime. He said the Russians were “seemingly taking on everyone who is fighting Assad,” as opposed to the U.S. approach of specifically targeting the Islamic State and like-minded extremists. “We believe at least some parts of the anti-Assad opposition belong as part of a transition going forward.”
At a White House news briefing Wednesday, press secretary Josh Earnest warned that “Russia will not succeed in imposing a military solution on Syria.”
Our bombs are bombs of love, peace, compassion, understanding, and " a broadly supported diplomatic initiative aimed at a negotiated political transition [that would] unite all Syrians who reject dictatorship and terrorism."
Russian bombs are just mean and kill innocent civilians. Ours kill terrorists and may on occasion accidentally create some dead no-so-terroristy people collateral damage.
