News Alert: Civilians reported dead after US conducts counterterrorism raid in Syria


US Special Forces conducted a "successful" counterterrorism mission in northwest Syria Wednesday evening, the Pentagon said, but offered few other details.

Sources on the ground reported multiple fatalities. At least 13 people were killed in clashes that took place during and after the raid -- including six children and four women -- according to the Syrian civil defense group, the White Helmets. There were no US casualties, according to the Pentagon.
Bloodthirst.

it is typical for Americans to group together unlike people out of ignorance, but I don't think this tracks onto what is actually a correct understanding of race, that is, that it's about exclusion and not much else
Take it from an American

I don't know much about sentiments but the idea that there is one correct understanding of race is not what this tweet suggests.
