It's basically the Gran Chapo all over again, and the last thing the Yanks want is another Vietnam.

The true cost of Putin's Syria adventure

http://www.interpretermag.com/why-russi ... ria/#12518

Quote:
"This appears to be a deliberate attack on a health structure and we condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms," said Massimiliano Rebaudengo, MSF's Head of Mission. "The destruction of the hospital leaves the local population of around 40,000 people without access to medical services in an active zone of conflict."

Doctors Without Borders said that the clinic had been struck by four projectiles within a few minutes and subsequently destroyed. It reported at least eight staff members missing. Doctors Without Borders said that there were two series of at least two attacks each. The dead included five patients, one patient caretaker and a hospital guard.

Doctors Without Borders said it had been supporting the hospital since 2015, providing medical supplies and running costs. The hospital had 30 beds, a staff of 54, two operating rooms and an outpatient wing, the organization said.

And what are you going to do about it?

Putin's a tyrannical cunt. Aside from some folks in the amazon basin, this ain't exactly news.

What to do about him? War? Good luck and welcome to the cinder that once was earth. Make the good honest Russian people see sense and vote him out? To be replaced by what? Tell people in the UK to stop believing everything they read in Russia Today? Possibly.

Andy I could make that point to you on a number of topics. It is an irrelevant point.

We could apply sanctions against freeze Russian assets in this country and get Ofcom to investigate Russia Today, actively expose the bullshit it promotes and subject it to the impartiality laws as other channels.

Russia Today is no worse than Fox News.

Mind, if you are Oliver Kamm writing for Murdoch, you might overlook this and call for Ofcom to act against the former but not the latter.

Fair enough. Will they be compiling a dossier on the Kunduz strike while they're at it?

http://www.msf.org/topics/kunduz-hospital-airstrike

Or, indeed, Russian forces' conduct during the second Chechen war (a great deal worse than anything which went on in Ukraine, for instance) which the US and UK governments of the time implicitly supported.

Gone.

I saw it last night. Horrific stuff - I don't think we should shy away from it.

Meanwhile the morning star has greeted the slaughter in Aleppo by proclaiming it as a liberation
