I heard on npr yesterday that a guy from msf is calling it a war crime. The hospital had told the U.S. military days before their location. Great article. Didn't realize until the end that it was written by Greenwald.

While I'm glad that this is getting the attention it deserves, the U.S. has been committing war crimes on a weekly basis for years now and no one seemed to care. Again, glad this is getting attention, but why this and not countless other bombings of this nature. Was it the process, weapons used, targets hit, or something else?

This isn't new. While they should be held accountable, where is the outrage for so many other crimes just like this?

Probably has something to due with the inability to simply shrug this strike off as a hit on "enemy combatants". No argument can be made that any active enemy combatants were in the hospital, and it's something that even a person who hasn't heard of any strikes over the last few years can agree is wrong. No nation should be allowed to engage their military in the way that the US is, from drone strikes to funding ISIS, the US is definitely one of the worst out there. Hopefully this evident fuckup will help wake people up to our atrocious recent history, but it'll probably get swept under the rug by other 'pressing' issues.

Because the US government was all shouting "Oy Vey, Putin you are bombing the wrong turrurists, so evil!" mere days before bombing a hospital.

Apparently they also told the military that the wrong place was under attack while it was happening, and they still didn't stop bombing.

Imagine if Russian news covered it as a war crime and Putin went about funding American terrorists to overthrow the regime.

LOL it would be nuclear war!!! Thank you for that intelligent addition.

You bring up a good point in that only the western governments and their allies would stoop to the level we have reached vis-à-vis foreign policy.

We, as a country under tyrant leaders, have done irreparable damage.

I know however that when we get our asses handed back to us (let's face it, our gov put us in a precarious situation), our <enemy> will be more forgiving than we would be if we come out victorious!

This is what I don't understand. Yesterday I saw a topic on the front page titled "Russian Official says U.S. Not Bombing ISIS at All, Obama Lying to the American People" and today I see this one. Since out current administration doesn't want to fill us in on their strategy in the middle east what exactly do you think it is?

[–] whynotanon1 1 point 13 points (+14|-1) ago 

There is no strategy. It's like when Bush went into Iraq and landed on the carrier with his mission accomplished banner. RT and Russian sources are propaganda machines just like the US media, it's becoming clear that none of these fucks are telling the truth.

[–] rail606 2 points 11 points (+13|-2) ago 

That is probably true except for the fact that sometimes 1 side has more to gain from the truth then the other. In this case Russia can speak the truth and the US must remain silent.

From what I can tell, it is to spread our American culture by whatever means necessary to meet the ends of propping up the capitalism succubus in order to avoid coming to terms with the reality that the only two things that America ACTUALLY produces and sells is bullshit and death. All of this, of course with the other long-term agenda of being the ONLY world superpower eventually after we bring this (still continuing - but only in the minds of the neocons) cold war with Russia, hot.

Every action in the middle-east performed by America is done completely self-centeredly, without concern for the people in the region, our allies, or even our enemies. It is being carried out by disconnected sociopathic aristocrats that believe that you can form a "better world" by playing a real-life version of risk.

There is no "hot" war with Russia. If there ever is one, humanity is finished and our great grandchildren will have the IQ of a beanstalk.

Could it be just an incompetent boob-job driven cluster fuck of corruption meant to use up defense dollars while running out the clock?

"Oh!, Damn! This is waaaayyy too confusing, Generals! Just do whatever and let me get the the fuck out of office before anything really bad happens, k? Hey, gotta go. I'm late for an incredibly boring and repetitive anti-gun rally and I need to pick up some more artificial tears. You know the drill, bubba-dudes."

Destabilization to fuel military industrial complex and earn money for independent contractors, while simultaneously distracting citizens at home which allows them to funnel more money to the top 0.1%.

What a surprise!!! (NOT). Everyone with half a brain cell knows CNN and NYT lie by omission constantly. They are only puppets of the liberal agenda.
