The US Govít Killed More Civilians This Month Than All Terrorist Attacks in Europe Over the Last 12 Years

Every time a terrorist attack occurs in Europe, it is met with an abundance of media coverage, and each victim is mourned by the public on a grand scale. However, the concern for the loss of innocent life appears to be almost nonexistent when the United States kills more civilians in one month than terrorist attacks in Europe have killed in the last 12 years.

A group monitoring the Syrian conflict reported on Friday that airstrikes launched by the United States-led coalition in Syria have killed 472 civilians from May 23 to June 23.

In the last 30 days, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the provinces with the largest death tolls were Deir Ezzor with 222 civilian deaths, including 84 children, and Raqqa with 250 civilian deaths, including 53 children. The Observatory also noted that the latest figure is more than double the previous month, which was around 225 civilian deaths.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the U.S.-led coalition entered the city of Raqqa for the first time on June 6, in the name of driving out the Islamic State. However, the first few days of the offensive resulted in reports of the coalition using a cluster of airstrikes including illegal chemicals such as white phosphorus on a city with a population of around 200,000 people.

While the U.S. claims its purpose is to defeat ISIS, its actions have been questionable. As Americans celebrated Fatherís Day on Sunday, the U.S. shot down a Syrian warplane that was targeting the militants. In response, Russia announced that it is halting cooperation with the U.S. and its allies.

Shows how rare terrorist attack deaths have actually been in Europe.

Despite recent attacks, the ‘70s and ‘80s were deadlier in Europe for terrorism

IN THE space of three months, Britain has suffered through three deadly terrorist attacks that have killed 34 people, excluding the attackers, and injured more than 200.

Since the beginning of the year a further 60 people have died in terrorist attacks in the rest of Europe including 14 when a nail bomb exploded on a St Petersburg metro train and 39 in an Istanbul nightclub on New Year’s Eve.

It can be easy to think we’re living through intensely dangerous times.

Yet, analysis by a Maryland University and published by The Economist newspaper has shown that by sheer number of deaths related to terrorist incidents, Europe was a far more dangerous place in the 1970s and 1980s.

The deaths that have occurred in Manchester and London over the past months are clearly a tragedy and families of the lost won’t be comforted by tables of data.

Nevertheless, deaths caused directly by terrorism in both the UK and Western Europe more widely are significantly lower nowadays then in decades previously.

One expert has pointed out “traffic accidents have claimed the lives of roughly 100 times more people than those killed by terrorists”.

What does that have to do with the OP's thread? Thread is comparing government to terrorist*, not historical trends of one of those.


Neg rep.

Reason: Contrarian post. Lack of contribution to the actual discussion.



*Some people might say those are one in the same.

However there is no moral equivalence and the two sets of civilians are also of different races.
As far as US foreign policy and moral standing goes, such comparison of civilians is like comparing apples and oranges.

Very sad. I just there is a level of apathy (caused from the inability to do something about US aggression) that prevents retaliation against us.
