On The Syria Occupation And The New Face Of Imperialism

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The US is an invading, occupying force that is in Syria without the permission of its government, yet it is claiming that the air strike was an act of “self-defense” against an “unprovoked attack” upon the US-backed SDF, a mostly Kurdish militia which had occupied an area of Syrian land.
