American comedian Dore called on the U.S. to remember Syria and stop screaming about Ukraine
The U.S. hypocritically speaks out against Russia’s actions in Ukraine, forgetting that the states invaded Syria, standup comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore wrote on Twitter.
“When you shout about the conflict in Ukraine, remember that the U.S. illegally attacked Syria and is currently occupying a third of the country. Which part of the country, exactly? The part where the oil is. America is the world’s largest terrorist organization,” said Dore.
U.S. military forces illegally control a number of territories in northern and northeastern Syria. Official Damascus has repeatedly called the U.S. military’s presence in its territory an occupation and state-sponsored piracy to blatantly steal oil.
On Thursday, the U.S. Congress rejected a resolution to withdraw troops from Syria. Less than a quarter of the House voted in favor of the withdrawal, with an overwhelming majority opposed.
