In 2015, the US Dropped 23,144 Bombs on Muslim Countries, Nearly 1 Bomb For Every Terrorist

Editor’s Note: It’s a good thing billions are stolen from the taxpayers by the military-industrial complex every year to “fight terror”.

Washington, D.C. – In a recent report, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Micah Zenko, noted that the United States has dropped an estimated 23,144 bombs in the Muslim-majority countries of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. That is over 60 bombs a day!

One of the focal reports of Zenko’s report is that despite the dropping of tens of thousands of bombs on the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations, recruitment for these groups is increased with every bomb dropped by a foreign power onto indigenous soil.

According to the CFR report:

Last year, the United States dropped an estimated total of 23,144 bombs in six countries. Of these, 22,110 were dropped in Iraq and Syria. This estimate is based on the fact that the United States has conducted 77 percent of all airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, while there were 28,714 U.S.-led coalition munitions dropped in 2015. This overall estimate is probably slightly low, because it also assumes one bomb dropped in each drone strike in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, which is not always the case.

Zenko notes that the strategic focus in the “War on Terror” is to kill extremism into oblivion, with little attention being given to preventing a moderate individual from becoming an extremist.

If we compare the number of bombs dropped by the US in Muslim countries (23,144) with the number of bombs dropped by Muslim countries in the US (0), the scenario begins to resemble more of a slaughter than some supposed ‘conflict’ or ‘foreign aid.’

Instead of bombs, however, Muslims have been dropping tens of thousands of water bottles in the form of aid to the citizens of Flint, Michigan whose government knowingly poisoned them for over 18 months through the city’s water supply.

According to the Washington Times,

A Muslim organization called “Who is Hussain?” donated 30,000 bottles of water to the Red Cross in Flint, Michigan, on Sunday to help alleviate the water contamination crisis that has gripped the city for months. The donation drive came on the heels of President Obama’s declaration of the situation as a federal state of emergency.

Who is Hussain? collected the water after a local campaign collected donations of cases of water bottles and online donations netted funds to purchase additional water.

Although the Pentagon claims to have killed at least 25,000 Islamic State fighters, in 2014 the CIA estimated the size of the entire Islamic State at “between 20,000 and 31,000 fighters.”

Pentagon officials claim that at least 25,000 Islamic State fighters have been killed (an anonymous official said 23,000 in November, while on Wednesday, Warren added “about 2,500” more were killed in December.) Remarkably, they also claim that alongside the 25,000 fighters killed, only 6 civilians have “likely” been killed in the seventeen-month air campaign. At the same time, officials admit that the size of the group has remained wholly unchanged. In 2014, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) estimated the size of the Islamic State to be between 20,000 and 31,000 fighters, while on Wednesday, Warren again repeated the 30,000 estimate. To summarize the anti-Islamic State bombing calculus: 30,000 – 25,000 = 30,000.

It seems clear that bombing the ideology of extremism into oblivion is a strategy that conversely works as a tool for radicalization and the growth of extremism.

The U.S. government’s current policy to combat terrorism will result in an unending conflict that will only continue to grow in scope as more and more moderate Islamic youth become radicalized as they watch their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and children die from U.S. munitions dropped in the name of defeating terrorism.

    They should have carpet bombed the entire middle east and then taken all muslims in America there and told them never leave again.

        works for me, the US does not need to police the world.

          Another deluded numbnut that thinks the US is some kind of benevolent police operation intent on bringing ‘democracy; and ‘freedom’. If it weren’t so perverse it would be funny.

        Nice incoherence – did you eat the paste willingly, or did you ask someone to feed it to you because you’re not smart enough to do it on your own?

    • Reverend Draco

      Please stop eating paste.

      • Mike

        nope, its non-toxic and goes well with a little added salt. If the middle east were turned into a parking lot, we would not be having these issues with muslims around the world.

          But “we” started it, “we” being Israel.

            Actually it was Zionists, not Israel.

          • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

            Israel was the product of zionists.

            America was the product of colonial traitors.

          • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

            Colonial traitors that just wanted to be left alone, not a bunch of zionists with visions of world conquest + no world wars were required to create America, just a secession from England.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            That secession was a act of treason against the King George, something no monarch could let stand without a fight. No war was required to create Israel. The UN used one as an excuse, the same way that Baby Bush used 9-11 to destroy Iraq. Zionists don’t want the whole world like the Rhodes or Cheney did or do, just the middle east.

            Both World Wars were required to create Israel.

          If the middle east were turned into a parking lot, so would the US. The rest of the world has more nukes than we do, and we’ve been pissing them all off for decades.

    • Nexusfast123

      They should have minded their own business rather than murdering people.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    Why do I fear that civilian deaths attributable to “collateral damage” are likely to outnumber those of jihadists?

    • Another Thought Criminal

      Because you have critical thinking skills.

  • Meltonmark

    But the real question is, why is America bombing anyone? I doubt the American people, as individuals, were ever involved in these decisions. So who was?
    Assuming 9/11 was an actual Muslim attack, would it ever have happened if the NeoCons* hadn’t first gone to the Middle East and tried to slaughter their people? War begets war. Without a political solution, America will eventually exhaust itself in a never-ending game of tit-for-tat death. [*The British equivalent too. I cannot think of one Middle East country that Britain hasn’t invaded at one time or another. Then the British public wail about Muslim hatred.]

    It seems no one ever tries to quantify the advantage to the American people, of spreading death and destruction all over the world [remember the Middle East is just the latest in a long line of ‘we know what’s best for the world’ interventions]. Is there an advantage?
    What will happen in another generation, when the descendants of the present 1.5billion Muslims grow up? Who radicalized them? Who taught them to hate? What examples of Western democracy and peace were they shown?
    What did they try and teach me at school…..for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction?
    Not criticizing. Just asking…

    • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

      9/11 was an Israeli false flag operation.

    • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

      It is pretty simple. The military industrial complex has to use up all of their weapons and equipment so that they can make some more. It’s lather, rinse, and repeat on a military industrial scale.

    • Razedbywolvs

      when the descendants of the present 1.5billion Muslims grow up?
      They don’t get the chance. https://en.wikipedia.org

    Well of course recruitment is going to increase, stop bombing innocents…

    Terrorist bombing the M.E and then calling THEM terrorists when they retaliate.

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

    If they’d have dropped a bomb for every legitimate member of ISIS, it would have taken 5.

  • SP_88

    The US does this because they are being controlled by the elitists who are using the US military to push their agenda for control of the oil. And in order for them to do it they need to believe that the middle east is full of terrorists who have and will attack America and also that they hate us for our freedom.
    Isn’t it such a coincidence that every country with terrorists also happens to have oil, or is a convenient route for an oil pipeline, or has decided to sell oil for Euros or gold? Better not sell oil for anything but dollars or you’ll find the US military in your country opening up a can of democracy on your ass. Gotta protect the petrodollar.
    If we the people were to regain control of the money, we could once again control our government and put an end to these endless wars and conflicts. We could make peace with other countries and begin trading with them instead of bombing them. I know that it would take time to make peace with everyone, but at least it would be a good start. Without the motives of the elitists and their greedy agenda, there is no need for war. All this death and destruction is because of a handful of wealthy elitists who have instigated war from both sides and then they sit back and watch the death unfold. It’s time to lynch these scumbags.
