Pentagon Chief Claims He Will Reduce Rising Civilian Casualties

The Pentagon reports that Defense Secretary Mark Esper is in the process of spearheading a “major new policy” focused on cutting the number of civilians the US military and US-armed allies are killing.

There are said to be concerns about the growing number of civilians killed in US drone strikes and airstrikes, as well as the number of civilians killed by other countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, with ever-growing supplies of US arms.

That said, the Pentagon is only saying changes would come “where possible,” and that a lot of the effort might end up with the Pentagon trying to “be transparent when civilian casualties do occur.”

Ultimately this suggests that there aren’t big changes coming as initially branded. Any changes would be done only where convenient, and honestly after decades of war any efforts to reduce civilian deaths have been unsuccessful, or short-lived. The priority “where possible” is almost always.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would not bet that this will ever happen, in spite of what may possibly be this gentlemen's bets intentions.

You can't always, dominate the narrative, as was impossible during a recent Saudi strike against Yemen.

Oh, and BTW, here is a companion piece on another bombing, from commondreams.org, on another massacre, from June of this year:

US made bomb which killed 6 Yemeni civillians, including 3 children, in June attack.

I am encouraging Rivero's Rangers, to please,share the following images with people they know: US-Backed Bombing Raid in Yemen Kills 7 children
