The United States is trying to destroy, the Syrian women in this video https://youtu.be/EhL8D0wYevo. Take a look at it, 18 minutes of interviews with people in Syria. These are the people, and this is the society, that the US is trying to destroy, and replace with a fundamentalist jihadist medievalism by arming and paying a terrorist invasion proxy army composed of ISIS and Al Qaeda and variants.
I prefer Syria over many places, and I prefer Syria particularly over fundamentalist medievalism. Syria is a secular, non-sectarian, multi-faith, modern, highly educated, and highly gender-equal socialist nation state, with a leader elected twice (most recently in 2014) and very well liked by his people, for good reason. This is FAR preferable to putting ISIS in charge, as is US policy. US policy is criminal, violates Nuremberg principles, violates all known human moral and justice principles. The makers of US policy on this are perpetrators of the most vile and gravest of crimes known to humanity. Russia is doing what it can to support the people shown in the video, the people that we (Americans) are trying to destroy. I don’t support their destruction. I support those people. I support Syria, and Assad.
The United States’ invasion of Syria, a US war by proxy in which the US pays and arms a mercenary army composed of ISIS and Al Qaeda (non-Syrians) to destroy Syria, divides people between “decent human beings”, and criminals.
Here are just a few of the decent human beings:

Donald Trump (invalidated April 2017) “We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past…We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments…. Our goal is stability not chaos, because we want to rebuild our country [the United States]… We will partner with any nation that is willing to join us in the effort to defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism …In our dealings with other countries, we will seek shared interests wherever possible and pursue a new era of peace, understanding, and good will.” (As of April 2017 these statements by Trump are totally invalidated, by Trump himself)

What about the Criminals?
The criminals infest both political parties in the United States. The US war against Syria began in 2011 and has continued through the last day of the Obama administration.
What about the nature of the crimes? These crimes are the gravest of crimes known to humanity. The Nuremberg Principles speak to the nature of these crimes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_principles#Principle_VI
“The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law:
- (a) Crimes against peace:
- (i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
- (ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
There is no jurisdiction in the world from which the United States does not exclude itself on such matters. Therefore the Nuremberg Principles don’t apply to the United States. However, Americans should have some familiarity with the Principles in principle, and indeed the Nuremberg Principles were authored in 1945, by Americans.
