“During a recent news conference, President Obama said he would not allow the current conflict in Syria to devolve into a proxy war between the United States and Russia.”

“But we’re not going to make Syria into a proxy war between the United States and Russia. That would be bad strategy on our part. This is a battle between Russia, Iran, and Assad against the overwhelming majority of the Syrian people.”

    this is why America gets attacked by terrorist.

  2. Filthywings on April 30, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Not enough to make it an election issue because voters don’t really care.

  3. Arifin ipin on April 30, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Most American soldiers can’t tell the difference between civilians and rebels, they just shoot, as well as Afghans, Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, can’t identify the difference between foreign soldiers or volunteers or Caucasian journalists, so don’t blame yourself if you shoot the wrong one, kill the wrong person.

  4. Jordan Forbes on April 30, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Funny how Obama was portrayed as a pacifist and even awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He’s just as bad as Bush.

  5. Merete Mitfuldenavn on April 30, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Stop that terrible back ground music!!

  6. Sownheard on April 30, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    The USA is a death squid.
    While holding there own heros in prison for revealing war crimes

  7. Anti War on April 30, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Bush, Obama, Clinton, etc should replace Assange. They are mass murderers

  8. ICHIGO COME OUT AND FIGHT ME YOU BESTARD on April 30, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Meanwhile CCN:
    Around 10 000 people died in Ukraine as civilians they have to pay a lot!!!

  9. Mark Colburn on April 30, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Mass shootings of innocents by U.S. citizens in their own land vs. hundreds of thousands of innocents killed in U.S. imperial wars including those killed by drones…..there is a connection.

  10. Nathan Lambert on April 30, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    That 200 and 35 number is way off and so is the average of 58 days deciding to strike based on the number of strikes, the math wayyy off. The days and percetages are much lower than that.

  11. Solkels _Z on April 30, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    biden struck Middle East (shocker I know)

  12. laos85 on April 30, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Joe Biden did the right thing while General Milley is just a cold blooded mureder scumbag

  13. Kevin Karén Kljyan on April 30, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Obama should be tried at the ICC for committing crimes against humanity, and be sharing a jail cell with George W. Bush for the rest of his life.

  14. Elv ✨ on April 30, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    I still wanna live in the USA. 🇺🇸

  15. Ghastly_Grinner on April 30, 2022 at 6:35 pm

  16. sawssman on April 30, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    My question is what were happening to these "terrorists" before drones?

  17. Sumit Singal Shanks on April 30, 2022 at 6:40 pm

  18. J GetsCensored on April 30, 2022 at 6:41 pm

  19. robert alex buc on April 30, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Julian assange

  20. Gullepomp on April 30, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    So all sides make mistakes but we make a difference when it comes to which side makes it.

  21. raat420 on April 30, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    President Obama the biggest murderer of innocent people. Shameless muderer Presidents have so much power to kill innocent people. Colinalism and imperialisn has never ended. Real biggest terrorists are these murderes.

  22. Hup Huppie on April 30, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Today they killed a whole innocent family cnn reports!

  23. raat420 on April 30, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    World criminal is Obama a disgusting hypocrital human being murderer of innocent citizens of third world countries.

  24. Voice of Islam on April 30, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Drone attacks are the cause of killing many innocent people and are totally against peace in the world..

  25. Pablo De Silvestro on April 30, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    CLEARLY NOT ENOUGH

  26. Persona Glover on April 30, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    We’re watching years since this video the West treat Putin as a war criminal that he IS and HAS BEEN, but they do so while completely disregarding what they have done to the rest of the world. Killing 500 civilians like Putin has just done is bad enough, but 150,000 is just astonishing. That’s three HUNDREDS times more people dying of Americans’ tax money right there.

  27. Javi etc on April 30, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    That’s what you call a killer President!

  28. Holly Hold on April 30, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    This report is that NINETY PERCENT are in ERROR?? Proof?

  29. Nothing much on April 30, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    These western terrorist are fighting for human rights?

  30. Ed SR on April 30, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    And this is the man who was given a Nobel.

  31. samed halafi on April 30, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    In a just world, Barack Obama would have been persecuted for crimes against humanity

  32. timothy packer on April 30, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    One big reason the Taliban won the war. Afghans got fed up with the US killing so many civilians. They ended up supporting the Taliban.

  33. ShuangChen on April 30, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    And there is no video on YouTube to show how many wars America has started after 2nd Ww.

  34. uskmt on April 30, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Thanks for speak out.

  35. intelligence news networks on April 30, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Amarica has done much more worse than that lol the us government and the CIA have destabilised countries that’s lead to millions of people dying. It’s tested weapons on people. In my opinion the United States is a threat to world peace its not the land of the free it’s the land of Sjws snowflakes fat people BLM A racist group ! RACISM and backwards religious groups corruption and most of the world is now getting fed up of it being the head. It’s become a terrible nation since bush! And 911. The United States government needs to be destroyed. And it’s people should form a new government. I only hate there government and some aspects of their people hahab

  36. Bulging Battery on April 30, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    It’s just a short matter of time before large fleets of drones end up being used on US soil to assassinate SCORES of Americans because of their political beliefs.

  37. Prasidh Hegde on April 30, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Barack Obomba

  38. Pajero Nuzzledazzel G. on April 30, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I am in Bramston beach, fnq and have been under drone attack for the last 3 nights and any other time I try to sleep during the last 3 days. I am starting to panic each time it wakes it me up and worried about my heart. I wonder if that was how they killed people with the drones sometimes. It has been at me for days, actually years. It this has been the worst attack and I’m unsure where to go for help… I think they are going to try to send me to medical. I need to sleep and for our military to get the drone…

  39. TippityTappityVIII on April 30, 2022 at 7:08 pm

  41. Zoey Zi on April 30, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Snowden is not a whistleblower. Hes a government agent and also a gangstalker. He may give a small amount of truth, mixed with lies mostly.

  42. Ricardo Campos on April 30, 2022 at 7:11 pm
