United states bombed hospital in Afghanistan.
« on: October 04, 2015, 07:47:20 AM »
One day after the United states warned about civilian casualties in Syria, the U.S.accidental bombing in Afghanistan, leaves little room to criticize.

If this is true it is reprehensible conduct by the US military. Some articles are reporting that the bombing of the hospital continued up to an hour after the US government and military were advised that they were bombing the Doctors Without Borders hospital.

Again if this is true the officers in charge of the operation should be  court-martialed. Any US civilians involved should be tried in civilian court.

True. It will be very difficult to beat John Kerry's gem, though:

I think they'll manage it.

The script will go out to the news/entertainment media, talking points will be talked and MSF not given the 'oxygen of publicity'.

Behind the scenes the right people in MSF will, in one form or another have their futures 'guaranteed' in exchange for their assistance in managing the situation. In the end it will be a tempest in a teapot. Possibly helped along the way by an explosion in a children's hospital in Damascus blamed on a misfired Russian missile.

I'm quite sure they already have - perhaps you aren't seeing all the news, there  ?


However, that cannot excuse the continued attacks when MSF were going through channels to have them called off ...

Russia it seems does a reasonable job of this in the Caucasus region.
