US airstrikes mean ‘inevitable & pre-meditated’ civilian deaths – author

RT America | May 26, 2017

A US airstrike targeting two Islamic State snipers resulted in at least 101 civilian deaths, in part due to “poor weather,” according to the Pentagon. Despite the huge loss of life, the Pentagon stated that it meets their standard for proportionality.

Author, Nicolas J.S. Davies, joins RT America’s Manila Chan to discuss issues of counting the dead in the Middle East and media portrayals of conflict in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. He argues that US claims of morally superior violence only fuels the cycle of terrorism and “collateral damage.”
