At first everyone assumed it was Assadist or Russian planes, since for 
them, killing 57 people in one hit at a place like a mosque is a more or 
less everyday event, just another yawn. But it was their close ally, the 
US Trump regime. The US claimed to be targeting "al-Qaida" (ie, JFS). I 
assume all the Islamophobic left, all those who can never shut up about 
the great threat of "al-Qaida" in Syria (by which they mean the ex-Qaida 
JFS), will praise this latest US contribution to the Putin-Assad "war on 
terror", war on the revolution, in Syria. Not unusual of course, except 
in the sheer numbers killed in one strike and the fact that it was 
worshippers inside a mosque; and also not really any different to how it 
was under Obama - Trump is more a continuation than a break, just more 
open, proud and deadly about it.

And for some reason, I keep seeing article after article claiming 
Trump's Syria policy is "still unclear," a "mystery" etc. Everyothing 
I've seen Trump and his entire gagle saying for months has been 
abundantly clear to me - not sure where the "unclarity" is. He says the 
US should join Putin and Assad to "fight ISIS" (as if that wasn't 
already Obama policy), which he pretends to think is what they are 
doing. He says the US should cut off all remaining tiny pittances of 
alleged "aid" to anti-Assad rebels (which btw, Mattis strongly agrees 
on), as if the US was actually providing any. Very clear, and very 
consistent with US actions over the last few months under both US
